Reviews

"Successfully reloading a gun for the first time through sheer muscle memory is easily one of the greatest feelings in gaming."
8.5/10 – Destructoid


"Receiver is interesting for two things. One, it focuses on a single weapon, the Colt 1911 A1, and takes it very seriously, using "high detail gun mechanics", which means you can "manipulate each part of the gun independently" (the beginning of the video shows this in action). The second is that it's a randomly-generated shooter that features permanent death. Taking place inside a single building, every time you die, you have to start at the very beginning again, but the entire game world is re-rolled. It's available now for $5, which given the ideas on show, is totally worth it just to check it out."
Kotaku


"Receiver didn’t cast me as some nigh-invincible mass of regenerating muscle. The end result, then, was that I felt exactly how I’d expect Real Me would in a combat situation involving live ammo."
Rock Paper Shotgun

Give the game a go if you're looking for a game that'll scratch your itch for smart and complex gunplay or kill a few hours, but don't get your hopes up for a more refined experience, even with mods taken into consideration. This package is incomplete, the mods for it are by and large incomplete, and that's the long and short of it. It's worth five bucks, sure, but that's not saying a whole lot.

This is the best shooter ever made - a pc gamer.
This game gave me cancer - a console peasant.

Dont buy this if you play call of duty, buy this if you like realism.
This game is intense AF, and not because you are in a bullet storm, because you really have to use your brain.
Every bullet counts.

Receiver is a promising tech demo wrapped into a frustrating and poorly executed video game. The sales pitch is quick to warn upfront, almost apologetically, that the game is critically underdeveloped. While this may help temper user expectations, it doesn't excuse fundamental design flaws.

The game embraces a "monkeys and typewriters" philosophy of level design, placing the items and enemies in each playthrough entirely at random. In practice, this flavors the gameplay with a sort of anti-design. You will search chains of seemingly empty rooms only to learn that they were indeed empty. You will find the game's rare collectible items lying unprotected in the middle of your path. You will risk your life and dip into your scarce ammunition supply to defeat fierce groups of enemies, only to discover that they were guarding nothing. And when you die, the level is discarded - along with all of the effort you wasted exploring it. The game's antagonist shifts from the killer robots to the secret behind-the-scenes dice rolling machine. I've never felt burned out playing a video game so quickly.

If the authors had created and playtested a small set of predesigned enemy/item layouts rather than spend time developing the procedural generation system, the pacing and fun of the gameplay experience would improve tenfold. Players would face a consistent, fair set of challenges with steadily increasing difficulty and a way to mentally benchmark how their skills progress. Beating the game would become a well-defined and measurable goal instead of a tedious series of gambles. In fact, such a game could in all likelihood fly straight to the top of my favorites. Unfortunately, that's not the direction the developers chose.

If the simulation aspect interests you above all else, Receiver may be worth the buy. But judging it as a video game, the procedural generator drags the gameplay down so heavily that I can't recommend it.

Story overview:

"WAKE ME UP!"
"Wake me up inside -"
"CAN'T WAKE UP!"
"Wake me up and -"
"SAVE ME!"

In all seriousness, this is like a tech demo, but a nice way to kill a couple of hours. I'd suggest getting it through Overgrowth, rather than as a stand-alone purchase.

Oh, man, you get to reload your gun manually! Neat! Is that all?

...oh, that's all.

I'll give it some points as a mechanics and proof-of-concept piece, constructed in a short time. As a game? Not worth my time and effort.

Works horribly. It doesn't work with my keyboard, because you can't reach the advanced help menu or holster your gun to refill your magazine. I'm guessing it's either because of the game or steam itself being designed for American keyboards or just my OS (which I read on a steam discussion is also why I can't even open my key bindings menu to change anything). This means that you're stuck with a capped 1-3 less than half-full magazines, depending on the gun. And to top it all off in general it's janky and slows down everything else I try to do when I tab out

In conclusion, Don't buy if you have Linux or a non-American keyboard

I like this game. A lot. I like it a lot. It sort of serves as basic firearm safety training, while also giving you a fun time with a great artstyle and little details that are easy to miss but quite fun to notice. Most people just say that this game is just a little experiment for a game jam. And although it is an experiment and was in a seven-day fps jam, it feels like way more than that. This game is 5 dollars. Buy it.

To be honest, at the first look this game doesn`t attract you at all, you may even think that it`s easy, but when you get into it, when you play at least 30 minutes, you will see how difficult this game is. I like challenges. I recommend this.

spawn in some apartment or something that's 500 feet above the ground, have gun with lots of bullets as well as bullets laying on the ground near me, cool beans bro. proceed to walk around outside, hear noises around corner, oh boy turrets, proceed to take an entire minute just to load my pistol, aim at turret and shoot, got that little ♥♥♥♥♥. find bunches of cassette tapes with some illuminati secret-♥♥♥ mind-warping hypnosis matrix ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, find almost all of them, im so good at this. hear strange buzzing noise as i enter next area, hear beep noise across roof, oh damn son, what's that. turn around to see a flying robotic incarnation of satan himself wobbling at me at 100mph with a tazer, my finger is tapping the W key faster than the speed of light, turn around again to shoot robot but it's too late, every ounce of feces inside my ♥♥♥♥♥♥ has spilled onto my chair.

10/10 would get scared to death by a wobbly tazer robot again

This game is very crafty and all of the spawns, from rooms to what you spawn with, are randomized. The game very quickly teaches you to be cautious, ranging from punishing you for running into a room without looking into it first, to immediately being rammed in the side with a drone with no way to counter against it.

How enemies spawn is randomized, and sometimes a bunch of turrets will be spawned in such a way that you'll need to tactfully take out each one before you can move on, and sometimes it'll cluster 5 turrets in one room.

To keep you on your toes, how quickly you can react to turrets seeing you varies, ranging from being able to be seen by a turret for a full second and not die, to being shot the instant you enter their field of vision.

Additionally, it seems how durable the robots are is also randomized. For example, sometime's you'll take out 4 enemies with one shot each, and sometimes you'll have to dump 10 bullets into a turret's weakpoint before it stops moving.

What you spawn with is randomized, which means sometimes you can spawn with a revolver and 30 bullets, and sometimes you'll spawn with a M1911A1 and 4 bullets.

Where you spawn is also randomized. Sometimes you'll spawn in a room full of ammo and maybe a tape and/or flashlight, and sometimes you'll spawn in direct view of a turret.

Don't get me wrong, this is a great game, it's just that if you're purchasing this, prepare for RNGesus to kick you in the butt. A lot.

Receiver: A game wich takes the meaning of "badass gunplay" and puts it in your hands. Althought Receiver may seem like a boring perma death run-of-the-mill game its alot more than that. Its gun physics, gunplay, and brutallity make it a game worthy of my top 5.

This is a game you most likely haven't heard much about, it's pretty ♥♥♥♥in' funky. It runs on Unity, so it has some buggy stuff going on. The difficulty is crazy difficult, I don't think I'll ever beet this game. but this game is super satisfying and scary and intense and you should definitely get this game if it ever goes on sale. I give it a: pretty good!

this game feels like it's the product of some weird cult's beliefs. at the time of writing i still haven't beaten it, but i can do all the gun things from memory so that's nice. somehow this game is my aesthetic and it's also pretty fun even though i know nothing about guns

the game has this thing it does where if you walk a certain distance it'll halt a sec to load the new chunk of area, which is sort of annoying and it's gotten me killed once or twice, but otherwise it plays pretty solid

An immensely (sometimes unfairly) tough game, but the intimate interaction with your weaopn, as well as scavenging for items and tapes makes this a game I keep going back to.

I bought this almost 2 years ago, and I only finally beat it for the first time. Yeah, I'm bad at these games, but it's not about purely making it to the end. The journey is almost always a fun one, and that's what makes this a good game.
