About This Game

Massive Co-Op Mission Now Available!

Our huge co-op mission, The NeuroGen Incident, is available now and propels you into the middle of a pivotal mission in the Interstellar Marines universe. Play single-player or co-op with up to three friends in intense action. We also have three Challenge co-op and singleplayer missions ready to play, with more coming soon!

Interstellar Marines resurrects the old school tactical FPS, offering a unique blend of co-op, role-playing and non-linear gameplay. Set in a believable future, you take on the role of an elite soldier handpicked to join Project IM, a top secret military program being assembled to protect mankind from all dangers outside our solar system.

Interstellar Marines is inspired by Half-Life, System Shock 2 and Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. Our game is all about evolving the FPS recipe with all the inspirations we've assimilated since the birth of the genre. Our goal is an evolutionary leap forward driven by our compulsive interest in science fiction, role-playing, military realism, and respect for first person immersion.

  • Thinking AI
    Enemies that react to input from you and the surrounding game world. We would rather have one smart thinking enemy than five stupid ones.
  • Believable Science Fiction
    Realistic and rich sci-fi environments, ranging from claustrophobic space stations to large outdoor worlds.
  • Interactive Storyline
    A cinematic narrative centered around first contact with another sentient species, where your choices and actions will have consequences.

Early Access Review
'Quick' & simple review:

Pros:
  1. Dedicated developers, even if progress on the game is slow. (For goodness' sake, it's a small indie studio!) Plus great community managers!
  2. Generally mature, close-knit, and wonderful community.
    (I must warn you, a few black sheeps exist.)
  3. Intentionally challenging game mechanics: (devs are aiming for realism)
    • No HUD crosshairs,
    • real weapon recoil,
    • hearing impairment after taking damage (with disabled HUD until you recover),
    • dynamic character breathing (which affects gun wobble),
    • limited movement speed and hampered jumping,
    • no checkpoints/save system in campaign/co-op
      (aka. permadeath, 'cuz it's hardcore),
    • long respawn time in PvP to force the players to be vigilant,
      (you can never be too careful in this game)
    • fair & balanced PvP
      (for now, SMG and rifle are available, and NO KILLSTREAK BONUS, HA!),
    • bots are literally robots who can flank you, snipe you a mile away, and make you wish you are wearing adult diapers on harder difficulties.
  4. Innovative game mechanics:
    • First-person simulation
      (no floating hands, no viewmodels,
      full first-person body is rendered where FP camera resides... and that helmet faceplate you see in first-person?
      Yep it's a real in-game, in-environment model too)
      wtf, the HUD too?,
    • dynamic crouch & cover system,
    • changing environments and game states.
  5. Dynamic maps! (This deserves repetition!)
    (Laugh as a wall rises to block your opponent off, or ragequit when a ninja jumps on you.)
  6. Awesome audio & visuals!
    (Provided that your hardware can take it and max out all the settings, and it's in Unity.)
    • Hear the water splatter around you at different places
      (on the ground, on your helmet, on the roof...)
    • Watch how the water splatters on your visor
      (hint: slowly look up and down... if you bought this game)
    • "...help..." (Officially denied by the devs & CM)
    • Check out the lighting!
    • ...and maybe many more fine details that are too damn obscure that you must pay attention to actually notice.
  7. Tense atmosphere in both campaign/co-op and PvP.
    (Your flashlight may or may not be your best friend.)

Cons:
  1. It's Steam Early Access.
    (not really a bad thing, but I guess some people don't like the notion of buying an incomplete game.)
  2. It's hungry for hardware, and not Mac/Linux-friendly ('cuz OpenGL and Unity).
    • On my iMac:
      30-60fps main menu, 15-30fps in PvP,
      drops to 1-5fps on NeuroGen Incident (biggest map in the game)
    • *turn off beamsync*:
      OVER 90... yeah... until NGI, it drops to 5fps
    • Switch to Bootcamp Windows 7:
      40-100fps main menu, cool 30fps in PvP, 20-30fps on NGI... not bad.
    • *switch from DirectX to OpenGL*:
      screw this... OpenGL & Unity hate each other.
    • Machine: Intel i5 2.5GHz, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 512 MB, 8 GB RAM
  3. Plenty of bugs to stomp (which I actually enjoy, but then, again…)
    • I mean, check out the pinned post I'm keeping (or I had been keeping) in the Steam Discussions page. It's friggin' long...)
    • Seriously. The list, although unofficial, is longer than this puny review. The official buglist is much longer.
    ("...where the **** is the keycard?!" "HOLY CRAP I AM FALLING THROUGH THE MAP!"
    that kind of thing. But a marine keeps his cool, no?)
  4. Server rollback has yet to be coded & implemented. (keyword: yet)
    • Client-server feedback latency may vary for different people.
      If your opponent/robot manage to shoot you in the head before you can even react, blame lag.
  5. Small multiplayer population + surplus servers + high ping (in my area)
    • Perfectly good money wasted on empty servers, IMO.
  6. No landsharks, yet.
    • Devs are so perfectionist that they want to perfect the AI code before introducing the sharks... *hype dies out*
  7. Spoiler: Not in space, yet. (The NeuroGen Incident is a reenactment underground.)


Thus, in the current state of this game:

Recommended For:
  1. Gamers looking for a highly balanced and tactical FPS.
  2. Gamers looking for thrills with replay value, and tired of mediocre jumpscares.
    (Advice: Never play on Easy mode. It kills the atmosphere.)
    But this is not meant to be a horror game. It's... uhm... a test!
  3. Live by the game tagline: In space, your friends can hear you scream.

Not Recommended For:
  1. Gamers used to and prefer mainstream FPS, like CS, CoD, BF etc.
  2. People who don't like buggy and incomplete indie games.
  3. Gamers who set the same high expectations like they do with heavily funded games by big publishers.
...which I can totally understand. This review is meant to help your research.

Conclusion:
All you have to decide is
WILL YOU BELIEVE?

Half-Life, System Shock 2 and Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield had a threesome, and out came Interstellar Marines.

Very solid game that does one thing right that so few games do; look gorgeous and be immensely fun simultaneously.

Early Access Review
When I bought this game, I immediately regretted it when the game was nothing more than a few multiplayer maps that you could walk around in.
It has improved a large amount since then, with a co-op campaign being added. It looks like a good start to an atmospheric survival-horror game. Perhaps not quite worth the $20 at this stage since there is still very little there, but maybe in the future.

7.9/10 - Pants were ♥♥♥♥.

Early Access Review
Given a chance to review this game I thought I was coming into a simple survival FPS game. When I began to play more I quickly relaized my first thoughts were not on point. While this is an FPS and their is a survival element I was pleasantly surprised by the scary tactics and horror this game brought in. It reminded me of F.E.A.R somewhat as their was always ambient noises that could scary you by themselves. I went into more detail on a review I did.

http://youtu.be/DIV44aaBX2w

Pros:
The Game shows huge pentential to grow. What I mean by that is being an early access game and in alpha it already has a feeling of almost being complete. This means there is still going to be so many things added to the game that will flesh it beyond what already it is.

Horror ascpects get you. The Game is lethal a simple tackle or a few shots and your dead from the AI because they are not forgiving. It gives you the sense of realism in the game and immerses you to the point where all the running, clanks, and movement of enemies truely get you on edge and scare you.

Co-op is amazing and well done.

Cons:

Its in Alpha so there are optimatization issue and clipping when going up and down in an elevator. This is to be expected as the game is still in beginning stages and has a lot to go so I am not worried theses issues will continue.

Highly Recommend this game to everyone!

I quite like the game, I find the developers likeable, and I don't seem to understand why people complain about updates as if they don't realize that full release games sometimes take longer to update, I do hope this game makes it to full release, it'll be nice to see a game with half life as an inspiration

Play this game at night with your headphones on and the lights off.

You won't be dissapointed with what they've created so far (since update 14).

Definitely a game to keep an eye on once it gets out of early access (might be a while though)...

Just keeps getting better with every update, them robots....my god...scary stuff. A lil bit overpriced considering its early access and state, but worth picking up down the line once they have gotten further into development. Really good shooter, like insurgency but with space and robots xD.

That 1 fps that the little kids wont find as they are just sitting on their Xboxes waiting for the new cod.
And that one fps that the tryhards wont find because they are sitting on free to play Red crucible 2 and Hawken.
Community 10/10

2 weapons? Okay I know this game is in what? Alpha? Beta? But come on.
4/10

Oh ♥♥♥♥ there are servers for nearly all the continents. And they run smoothly
8/10

Graphics are great even with how low the system requirements are. However if your limit really is Team fortress 2 then you dont want this game.
10/10

Lastly. Balanced gameplay. Nothing overpowered and controls are easy to learn.
9/10,

Overall a great game and when its in full swing it will be very sucsessful.

Early Access Review
Intersteller Marines shows a lot of promise, though need a lot of work still.
Multiplayer works well enough, but I haven't played it much since I seem to die every minute. The singleplayer/co-op mission that was released not too long ago is pretty good, considering it was the first one available on Steam (Though I've only played singleplayer version). However the AIs are stupid and sometimes run right past you.
My favorite feature of this game is the lighting effects, which are some of the best I've seen in a video game: very dark or very bright all in the right places, and synthetic lights flicker and die when you shoot them.
The helmet effects are also really well done, with water drops in the rain, smooth transition when it's rained or lowered, and vision seems to be a little cearer when its up, though all hud-elements disappear (which is a nice, realistic touch). Also it's nice how when you're crouching, you peak over cover while aiming down-sight.
The game's nowhere near finished, but what they have is great, and I look forward to future updates.

Early Access Review
As of writing this, I have logged a good 217 hours into the game according to Steam.

Since this game is in early access, the information written here is subject to change. Right now, I would recommend this game to anyone who wants a fun game to play with your friends or even random people online using the ingame VOIP.

Stuff the game has:
  • Enemies - Robots, Real People (in multiplayer), TR-100's (they are all your enemy)
  • Guns - SMG, Assault Rifle with crazy zoomed in scope
  • Singleplayer/Coop - Neurogen Incident, Nucleus Escape Mission, Operations (Swarm mode)
  • Multiplayer - 5 or 6 maps with day/night cycles that happen while matches are happening
  • It has a HUD which can be disabled if you get shot but don't die. It will regenerate if you don't get shot for a little while longer.
  • A ranking system which basically quantifies how experienced of a player you are. Your Training Rank goes up the more Training Points you have. The first ten levels are easy to get, and so are the next twenty or thirty. After that you notice it takes a little longer to level up. It takes 1000 TP to get to TR-10. It takes 100,000 TP to get to TR-90, then 200,000 TP to acheive TR-100.

    So that's basically what it has. I glossed over a few things, for example, the maps. Some of the maps are dynamic, changing midway through the level, altering slightly how the game is played on that map (map name: Elevation, Colony).

    SHAMELESS PLUG - Youtube channel: N00bvlog (n00bvlog) Now, back to your programmed content.

    The Neurogen Incident is a huge coop map which could potentially be very creepy for you to play. You could play by yourself, but I would recommed playing coop because there are no checkpoints and if you die, you die, which could be very frusterating if you play for a long time and then lose all your progress. In coop, your team mates have the opportunity to revive fallen teammates during a span of 15 seconds before their team mate is gone for good. The map is huge and has some performance issues (which, I'm sure, are being worked on).

    There are also some smaller missions which do not suffer from a performance hit quite as much.

    Performance-wise, this game does not perform the greatest on my machine I seem to always get 30 FPS. Here are my specs so you can judge whether this is good or bad. Intel Duo core CPU running @ 3 GHz. RAM: 4GB, Graphics Card: Nvidia GTX 670.

    As far as I know, the update schedule of the game is about 1 update per month.

    So, this game is coming along quite fine, and, with each update it is becoming more and more the game I want it to be (such is the nature of Early Access). Obviously it is not there yet, so if you want a full game that runs great, don't buy the game yet. Read another review in about a year or so. It should have many more features and potentially be optimized by then.

    Hope this helps.

for a game that is in early Alpha, the gameplay feels extremely polished and fluid. The fundamentals for an amazing game are there. There is of course. bugs and glithces, as to be expected, but as the game stands, it is alot of fun and definately worth the price.

10/10 - and I expect it will only get better.

These guys are going to make a superb game. Viscerally immersive, I have to take frequent breaks, scared my heart will beat itself to death. Am desperate to get the lads over to see which one of us freaks first.

In terms of immersion, would love to see TrackIR support for independent head movement (á la Arma series) and am looking forward to the "RTVP" voice comms that, on paper, is going to be an industry leading, gold-star feature.

Please buy this and get excited about what it will become.

the thing is though if you play the neurogen incident on an imac its pretty much a lagfest so maybe fix that later?

Personally, for an early access game, it's fairly engaging. However, pros and cons do exist here, and I do feel they should be addressed.
Pros:
1) GREAT atmosphere. Personally choosing which directions to go, what weapons to have out, and what to do seemed more than filled with it's fair share of tension on a solo mission. You know the enemy is dangerous, and taking it out quickly is essential as they can more than easily take you down with their bonzai-like charges or sudden gunfire in your direction. Even frightening at some parts for me, though not too much.
2) Lovely graphics. Personally I was impressed with the graphics and how realistic they made everything seem.
3) From my experience, the community is decent. The first time I ever played a multiplayer server, I actually got great people. They were friends, and we all used teamwork to get past difficult objectives. They were friendly to the new players and happy to lend out a hand.
Cons:
1) Lack of community. Out of a good number of 10-15 servers (Give or take a few), usually only 2-4 of these have players in them at any given time. Admittedly very annoying.
2) Only two weapons? I was hoping for a bit more weapon diversity, as though the two weapons obviously serve different purposes, their usefulness in close quarters combat against these bonzai charging robots can be panic filled when they close in. Not too annoying when your comrades can simply press 'E' to instantly revive you, but when players are fairly close together, this can lead to disaster.
3) Lag. Admittedly my computer is not exactly a gaming device that's beefed up or such. But even when attempting my best to lower graphics options (Which was also nearly useless) I felt that on larger maps my progress was slowed down to a nearly unplayable rate as my FPS dropped to an average of about 15. Bleh.

Obviously not the perfect review, but if the lack of players doesn't turn you off and your computer is better than some windows 8 laptop, go ahead! This game is well worth the buy.
