Twain Harte, CA – August 28, 2014 – Exato Game Studios and indie games partner GameMill Entertainment announced today that Guncraft will be available for digital download on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft in Q4 2014.

“The response we have received for Guncraft from the PC community has been nothing short of fantastic, so we’re thrilled to reach even more players by bringing the game to the Xbox 360 platform,” said John Getty, Lead Developer of Guncraft and founder of Exato Game Studios. "Guncraft is the perfect blend of sandbox gameplay, crafting, and intense FPS action.”

Marrying the addictive nature of block building sandbox games with the speed and competition of modern first-person shooters, Guncraft takes voxel-based gaming to a whole new level. Play through dozens of maps, then create your own level with secret tunnels and hiding holes to find the best look out for ambushing your friends. Players can create arenas based on anything imaginable, and once complete, utterly destroy them with bullets, bombs, grenades, tanks, helicopters and even laser swords. In the heat of battle, soldiers can create custom blockades and fortresses instantaneously.

GUNCRAFT XBOX LIVE KEY FEATURES:

  • Exclusive Xbox Live maps
  • Includes all PC DLC

  • Player-controlled vehicles, perks, killstreaks, class load-outs, clan system, and ranks

    • Onslaught Mode - Where four players band together to fight off endless waves of deadly robot spiders, soldiers, drones, and aircraft
    • Spleef Mode - Where players drill and destroy blocks on the platform near or under their opponents in order to cause them to fall to their deaths while fervently moving to avoid suffering the same fate.
  • Exclusive levelling system where you earn new rewards with every other level, all the way up to level 550 (50 levels per ReCraft rank - one base, 10 ReCrafted ranks)
  • New high-resolution models with an unlockable aesthetics system containing 300 pieces of unique gear to customize characters. Each are individually customizable, giving gamers over 4 billion different combinations
  • New tutorial system for learning the basics of Guncraft and each game mode

Guncraft One Year Anniversary Announcement!

It's been one whole year... WOW. I honestly can't believe how fast that happened. Thank you guys so much for your support and making Guncraft a success. Without you, there'd be no future for us, so we're unbelievably grateful for each and every one of you :).

Well we are ready to announce when that big update is coming. We'd totally announce it today, but it's a Saturday and most people wouldn't even notice our announcement if we posted it today. SO IT'S HAPPENING TUESDAY!

Are you ready? I know we are. It's been a long time coming and we're so excited to finally tell you guys what it is.

Check back on Tuesday, August 12th for the big announcement!

About This Game

Block and Load! Combining the addictive nature of block building sandbox games with the speed and competition of modern first-person shooters, Guncraft takes voxel-based gaming to a whole new level. Players can create maps and arenas based on anything imaginable and, once complete, can utterly destroy them with bullets, bombs, grenades, tanks, helicopters, gunships, and much more. In the heat of battle, soldiers can create custom blockades and fortresses instantaneously. Watch out – just when you think you’re safe, enemies can tunnel through walls and dig through floors to ambush you from behind, above or below!

In addition to standard modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Capture the Flag, Guncraft offers over seven outlandish game modes like Lava Survival and Racing Mode, plus 100% customizable load-outs that include perks, weapons, vehicles and more. Even better, the core crafting mechanics of Guncraft are available throughout every aspect of the game, enabling players to build maps, prefabs, characters, and weapons on the fly, then decimate them all to take down enemies.

KEY FEATURES:
  • Voxel design coupled with hardcore FPS elements: Player-controlled vehicles, perks, killstreaks, class load-outs, clan system, and ranks.
  • Create custom levels, weapons, and characters – you are literally only limited by your imagination!
  • 7+ outlandish game modes for up to 16 players (Online/LAN), including:
  • “Lava Survival” – Magma slowly rises as players build upward to avoid the instant orange death. It’s a new variation of “Last Man Standing”.
  • “Onslaught” – Four players band together to fight off endless waves of deadly robot spiders, soldiers, drones, and aircrafts.
  • “Spleef” – Players drill and destroy blocks on the platform near or under their opponents in order to cause them to fall to their deaths, while fervently avoiding suffering the same fate.
  • “Siege Mode” – A building and prefab centric game mode where two teams are pitted in a race to build a trebuchet-style catapult first. Be sure to defend it, else you get your structure destroyed by the other team.
  • "Racing Mode" – Race to the finish and blow up everyone in front of and behind you in the process! You can even team up with a friend for some double dash style action in the fast paced new game mode!

Well there are good things about this game and bad thing

Good thing
- You can build your own weapon/maps/skins and other stuff.
- It has a good gameplay.
- The trailer saying pretty much about the game.
- Private server's to have fun with your friends it enabled.
- There's workshop for the game.

Bad thing
- The developers stop suporting the game.
- Low people on server's.
- Camper's. (People that hide and shoot you in 1 hit)

I choose that this game is really good.
If your still think this game is bad Check the gameplay on youtube.
But give it atleast a try to play it.

Thank you for reading.

I'd have to say for an indie title, Small poish issues aside it's a pretty solid game for the price. The community is small but friendly and helpful and the staff tends to listen to their clients (Us!). Weapons aren't so much 'Overpowered' as it is a case of there being a plethroa of playstyles/weapon loudouts and classes which offer an all but endless mix of play options and it can take people awhile to find a set of each that works for them. The editors take a bit of learning to use but are extremely quick and easy to use once you get used to the options and shortcuts and one can often find themselves wasting countless hours in the map editor or gun smithery getting their tools of destruction jusst right. Overall I'd give this a 7/10, Like I said it has some growing to do but the company's learning as they go and I for one support them. :D

Guncraft is probably the most fun game I own in my library, and I have a lot of games in my library (CS:GO, Terraria, and Starbound come to mind). But nothing can compare to the awesome experiance I get when I play Guncraft. The latest updates added some really nice shading, to make the game look more professional, and now this small indie company is coming to Xbox. For $15, I would buy this game, I already did, and I can say that it was most certainly worth the money, I've been playing for 3 years, so I can tell you this review is accurate.

Once you enter a game, you may have some challanges to overcome (Deadsin, Redcorpion, and a few other players come to mind). I highly reccommend taking the tutorials, first thing. It will prepare you for whats ahead, there are a variety of clans you can join if you like, Clan of Bacon [Bcon] is the best one, you should join that.

The game has aspects to it that no other Voxel shooter has (AoS, Blockstorm etc.) The Hookshot! It's a grappling hook that if used correctly can amount to you flying over the whole map raining bullets on your enemies below.

Do I recommend the game? YES, Do I think it's worth the money? YES, Do I think you should ignore all the people who don't recommend this game? YES.

One small issue though.... There are not a ton of players, but if you hang around the game, you can find people online.

At first, I assumed that this game might have been like a certain freeware game known as Build and Shoot, a fun little game that never really did get a lot of attention, but had a lot of fun ideas that make the game quite fun to play. Being able to dig trenches, a small wall, or even a fancy bunker made for an interesting game where the key to winning isn't just shooting people, but being able to build things to keep people from killing you as easily, be it as simple or complex as you desire.

This is not the case here.... All this game turned out to be is a simple run and gun game that provides silly killstreaks ala CoD.. Hell, it is nothing more than Blocks of Duty if anything.. The whole building aspect is utterly pointless in game, because there is no way to shoot over anything two blocks tall, meaning you can't use cover to protect yourself while you reload and fire from it. Heck, the mere act of building takes ages, and it is much easier to just ignore building all together and just shoot at each other. Even breaking the map isn't fun, let alone the fact that it can sometimes be very easy to fall off said map without warning in some places.

Seems the only building element in the game is for the guns, which of course is easier said than done, since it requires third-party programs in order to fully complete your gun, and even then it could still get denied if it doesn't meet certain requirements.. The guns that do pass, however, are frustrating beasts to deal with.

So, you can't build (let alone even use) cover in a game where you die really easily, the combat is pretty much CoD in block form, and oh yeah, some of the maps suck pretty bad too.. Can it get worse? How about the fact that the community is so small that it is depressing to just think about it?

Really, if you want a fun block builder/shooter game, stick with Build and Shoot, it is free and much funner than this, let alone it probably has more players than this game ever will.. And BaS doesn't even have a large community either, so that is saying a lot.

The Devs of this game have been slow with updates but the game is fixed, I am upset that the big update was just a fix but its a good start.There still isn't much realism like damage, recoil,and gun weight but the game is less annoying. Also there are some more players on here after the update.

so I give this game a 6/10 right now because there has been fixs like melee and default guns aren't op any more.

I dont know what to really say, so this will be quick. The UI sucks, game is fun and the graphics need to be polished. But still this game is fun to play 7/10. Another thing to the buyers: When you buy the game and see the terible UI dont quit, just go into the game a little bit and you will enjoy it!
