New Server Tools are Live!

Greetings Minimum Players!

We are excited to announce that after some great feedback during beta, a new build is up on the main branch, and Minimum is back up in the store (with a "welcome back" sale price!). If you didn't get a chance to check out the beta, here are some highlights:

  1. Player Hosted Servers: All servers are now hosted by other Minimum
    players. This should add some flexibility, and give players more options on how to play.

  2. All New Server Browser: A new visual interface allows players to see what servers are available, who’s on them, and what rules are in play.

  3. Updated Server Launcher: Quickly access key server options from a visually intuitive launcher. The Launcher.exe gives you the tools to host a server, along with options like max players, target score, time limit, and more, and should make it easier for server hosts to create more customized game types.

  4. New Admin Interface: Server have access to a new visual interface that allows them to access key admin options, participate in chat, manage the map cycle and more. (By pressing the left ALT button or typing in "ToggleAdmin " in the console.
We're continuing to work on the game, and we expect regular updates in the coming weeks and months. Please keep the great feedback coming, we couldn't do it without the amazing Minimum community!

New Build, New Browsers!

Greetings Minimum Users!

After a few weeks of beta, we’ve taken some great feedback from the community and made some significant updates to the game. Our big focus has been on visualization and transparency for the new server system (Please note, this is still on the BETA BRANCH). Among other fixes:

  1. All New Server Browser! A new visual interface allows players to see what servers are available, who’s on them, and what rules are in play (standard “automatch” is still available).

  2. Updated Server Launcher interface Quickly access key server parameters from a visually intuitive launcher. The Launcher.exe will include options like max players, target score, time limit, and more, and should make it easier for server hosts to create more customized game types.

  3. New Server Admin Interface Server have access to a new visual interface that allows them to access key admin options, participate in chat, manage the map cycle and more. (By pressing the left ALT button or typing in ToggleAdmin in the console.
We are aware of the concerns some players have expressed regarding the inventory reset. Unfortunately, the majority of this data was tied in with the server system that was shut down by the third party partner, and is no longer available. We are able to view some of this via Steam, and are investigating, but we don't have a fix for this at present. It is a top priority and we will keep players posted.

Again, we want to thank all of our core players for supporting the ongoing growth of Minimum. Let us know what you think of the new build, and thanks again!

About This Game

Are you a fan of old-school twitch shooters like Unreal Tournament and Tribes? What about team focused MOBAs like DotA and League of Legends? Would you like to play a game that combines elements of both genres while adding crafting, customization, giant robots and a bold new art style to the mix?

Of course you would, and Minimum is just the game you've been searching for!

Minimum focuses on fast-paced shooting fun and a robust system of in-match crafting, team objectives and customizable roles to create a rich and rewarding PvP experience. You'll find a bunch of interesting weapons to collect and customize, armor sets to mix and match, a solid core game mode known at TITAN MODE and more all wrapped up in a unique, minimalist artistic style that's more than the sum of its parts. Some of our coolest features include:

Customizable Weapons


Craft dozens of lethal weapons with unique abilities and roles to best fit your personal playstyles. Each weapon has 5 power levels that are activate during kill streaks, increasing your power making you a force to be feared. Be careful though: weapon power levels are lost upon death, so with great power comes great risk!

Blueprint Crafting System


Gather materials from fallen foes and defeated objectives to craft and upgrade armor sets over the course of a match. Each set of armor has different benefits and weaknesses that can emphasize your favorite playstyle or counter what your enemies are trying to do.

Titan Mode


Battle in epic matches centered on the your team's Titan, a giant, destructive robot that confronts the enemy's Titan. Players can power up their Titan by performing tasks in-game, can defend their mammoth ally by killing enemy players, and can attack enemy Titans directly. The teams compete until one side's Titan reaches the enemy base and destroys it!

5v5 Competitive Gameplay


Create cunning strategies with your teammates and define your unique role on the team by combining different weapons, armor and devices. Support your teammates weapons that increase drop rates for materials and powerups, defend your Titan with armor that grants additional health and survivability, scout enemy positions with weapon and armor that increase speed and allow for double or triple jumps, or simply go glass cannon and dish out as much damage as you can!

A Player-Focused Development Team


We want Minimum to be the most player-focused game on Steam! Join us on our Steam community discussion forums to talk shop, weigh in on new features, report bugs and balance problems or just chat. Minimum is a game that will evolve with its community, both while in Early Access and beyond.

It's a shame. This game used to be super fun, but the game's been broken for awhile and the servers are hardly playable anymore. I wish I could recommend this game but it's just so broken right now and the problem isn't being fixed.

Usually don't write reviews but for this game I had to.

It's very easy to be lurd by the way this game looks, which to be fair is beautiful. It's a very clean look with simplicity as its strongest feature. The game has detail but in how much the devs took the idea of minimalism and made it crisp and flavorful, as opposed to making it even more blocky than it already is.

Once you get past the aesthetic of the game, it ends up being a very fun game with a great mechanic, the titans and the creep, to keep each match fresh and exciting, especially with different armor and weapon loadouts.

But this didn't last. That fun was when the game was released, and it had a bunch of people playing, filling matches frequently. Now, the devs shifted to player based servers, which would be fine, except no one plays this game anymore, so there is rally only 1 server with often the same people, and some bots.

Why is no one playing this game? A combination of people just leaving it for new things, but also because the devs don't really care anymore. I mean that there hasn't been any real support for the players recently. This came as a surprise to me, as I bought this game when it came out and the devs were awesome. I came back to it very recently to find that that didn't last.

Further more, they took away all the items players had in their inventories, and reset back to stock weapons armor. This isn't the worst thing ever, as you can just grind back for them, but why? Why reset, why take items you could have paid for, or grinded for, and make the people who have been playing the game for so long have to redo everything?

Ultimately, this game is fun when all the blocks fit together {heh} but it all fell apart. Unless some quick support from the developers happens, this game will die even more, not that that means anything at this point. Check the community hub/discussions for updates, but unless you see something postive, do not buy this game. Sucks, but use this as an example of good game, bad support.

The game is still playable in Community Servers If you play Public Servers you can play !
,but sometimes the server might shutdown there was 3 servers I met 3-4 pepole online playing the game. it was fun. (*and this was from 05/08/2016 just to tell) I just hope that the game gets better later in the future. The devs have abandom the game because of Atari stop funding Head Studio :/ I still like the game because of how it looks and the 2 game mode Deathmatch and Titan Mode is fun. I hope they could of add one more mode.
I did play Horde Mode with bots. it wasn't fun anyways XD I have also a brother who also played he enjoys it ! I hope some pepole out there whoever has a copy why not play community :/ there is only 8-12 pepole online on this game. before in 2014 Feb. there was 2000+ players. Hope the devs can comeback and fix the exit button and add Map Future and also add Skins Addable :/ and cosmetics like a mod. Please come back Devs. The game is a bit stable if they comeback. and fix it. :c I went to also record a bit of gameplay deathmatch for my youtube videos as well.
The game is 6.9/10 anyways for my rate also if you gonna get this game play with a friend and play deathmatch together and tell all your friends to play together :)
-pomtapom
Edit: :/ also the last update for me was June. 2 month ago so I don't know if they update it or not.

Surprisingly damn good game. Haven't actually had a problem finding matches (for whatever reason, steam says I've got an hour played, but I've given it about 20 by now). Recommended to those who want to get out of the CoD/Battlefield/CSGO funk.

Game has terrible netcode (completely unfit for sniping), many bugs that have been around for ages (one example would be the bug where it's impossible to search for a match or even quit the game), and overall just feels unresponsive. I've played this game on and off for around 2 years, and not a single part of the game has been changed save for the additions of new weapons. As is to be expected, the game is dead by now.
Don't buy this.

Early Access Review
Posted: May 9, 2014
Not much has changed about the core game since May 2014, a whole bunch of bugs have been fixed, new maps and weapons have been added, and the netcode was slightly improved :P

----

Minimum is a twitch shooter with titans and creep farming.
So there's Quake III in here, there's UT3 in here, feels a lot like Warframe too, and the concept of momentum from MOBAs is in here too.
Run around, kill enemies and go on killstreaks to upgrade your weapons, watch two titans march down the middle (by themselves) and meet to engage in hand to hand combat in the middle, shoot titans in the legs, cry when both titans die, go farm slaughter creeps to make your titan even more powerful next time, and kill more enemies because you just got killed that god damn sniper is back again and you need to power your weapons up again.

Rinse and repeat, until your titan breaks smashes through the enemy walls like an angry baby and heroically punches (where applicable, existence of arm-like limbs not guaranteed) the enemy power core (or whatever the hell that thing is) and cause MASSIVE EXPLOSIONS, indicating your sweet sweet victory against the enemy team.

A total of over 20 weapons and over 15 craftable armour pieces makes your fighting style as confused as your grandmother with a Shake Weight TM customisable as can be.
Oh, didn't I mention it before?
When you kill enemies and creeps, you get crafting materials to craft armour to enhance your combat capabilities by boosting things like damage resistance, movement speed, and jumps, while at the same time (sometimes) lowering other stats like total health and movement speed.
So uh, we can throw Minecraft in there, right?
...Kinda. The crafting is more like how Terraria does it, you collect materials and choose something to craft, you won't be forced to lay out your resources on a 3x3 crafting grid during combat :P

The graphics are awesome too, what is lost in texture quality is more than made up for in particle effects with explosive plasma grenades, explosive sniper rounds, explosive explosives, and glowing swords.
You read this right, swords.
Glowing, particle trail active, slashy swords.
Which give you superpowers.
Then again, so do most of the weapons.
Jumping, dashing, vision enhancement, telekinesis, (you can redirect projectiles) the list goes on!

Words cannot do this game justice, and just by signing up you can get cool exclusive armour, too :P
Shameless referral link, please click me
Aaaand if you purcahse and play while the game is in Early Access, you get an exclusive reskin of the Inferno Katanas to play with :D

TL;DR
Quake + Unreal Tournament + Warframe + Dota + Terraria + Michael Bay
ANGRY TITANS
Killstreaks
Lots of weapons, lots of armour
Superpowers
Buy now get extra swords
Go play it now.
