Death Tractor

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my proud duty to inform you all that our sister game - Death Tractor - has just been Greenlit by Valve!! On behalf of Exato Game Studios, I thank you all for your support. What a week it's been for us!

I'll have more information for everyone once we have it (and when we stop partying xD).

Newsletter - What We've Been Waiting For

Hey guys,

Its time once again for those few minutes of your time we call the Newsletter! Sorry about that, but I promise you that this will be time well spent.

Lets start with the community. Do you remember that at the start of the year, we ran the Battle of the Clans competition? Well judging from the feedback we got back from it, its clear that many of you would be interested in doing it all again. Thanks in no small part to that feedback, we have decided to do it all again! We haven't yet set a date for registrations to open, but I can tell you that we will be aiming to have the majority (if not all) of the battles over the school Summer holidays, just so we can try to open up some more times for competitors around the world to beat the everlasting life out of each other! Keep watching both the News & Announcements and General Discussion sections of the board to get more information as its revealed!

Next up, we have a bit of bittersweet news. Due to various reasons, it has been decided between the senior staff and himself that Merlock should leave the team. I'm sorry to see him go, but on behalf of EGS, I wish him all the best for the future. However, Merlock's departure means that the Moderating team was left a little bare for a while. After much discussion, we eventually decided that both Turbozack and Zusheqiel are to be promoted to the Mod team! Let me be the first of many to congratulate you both on your new roles. Send me an e-mail and I'll get an NDA and instructions to you asap.

And now we've got the comparatively small reports out of the road, its time for the big one! Yes ladies and gentlemen, on May 15th 2015 at 5:15PM BST, our friend and developer Darknuke dropped me this bombshell:

#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
(note that we were discussing BotC at the time)

[17:15:24] Darknuke: ... That sounds like a good idea. Might also work when we release Guncraft on Xbox. We passed cert, but [there's still work to be done].

[17:15:58] Rav3n: oooh, you just made my day!
[17:16:22] Rav3n: and once I get it in the newsletter, it'll make everyone else's as well

Yes, if you didn't catch it in the chat above, let me spell it out for you.

Guncraft has passed Microsoft certification!

This means that in theory, Guncraft: Blocked and Loaded could appear on the virtual shelves from any point from now on. However, I would ask you all not to expect it immediately, as there are still one or two things the devs need to do in order to be ready for the launch. Having said that though, the certification was arguably the biggest hurdle that we faced, so now that we're through it, it really won't be long before our little voxel game is sitting on the shelves alongside some of the bigger titles!

When I come to write the next Newsletter, I hope that I'll be able to give everyone a definite launch date! See you all then!

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!

Concept might be nice, execution too, but unfortunately the multiplayer is nearly dead, and it's all about the multiplayer.
not recommended.

Pretty good game, not many people play it atm.
All it needs is some big youtuber to revive it and it may work out again.
I really liked this game and the level editor part.

11/10, would play again (if more ppl played it ofc)

This is one of our faimly's favorite games. I even give it out as gifts. What makes it most fun is being able to craft your own guns, and terrain. Crafting guns is my sons favorite part of the game. For lan parties it is a blast.

Guncraft is a voxel FPS with crafting elements like building your own maps, building your own guns, and creating your own skins. Stats for your guns are fully customisable. Although Guncraft isn't the only Voxel FPS on the market, it has a lot of unique features that makes it stand out form the typical FPS.

*A close community of players which support each other
*New exclusive gamemodes like Lava Survival, Paranoia and Meteor Survival
*Over 2 000 000 User created Content
*I know this sounds weird but you get a hookshot to grapple up to high places, this adds a whole new dimension to gameplay.
*The Map editor is great, the Gun editor even more so. You can litterally build anything you desire, from a rocket shooting cat to a SMG doughnut.

I know the games has its flaws, but the developers are hardworking and tries to fix everything they can as quick as possible. A lot of the negative reviews on steam was before the game got its facelift and new features, and I feel people should change their review to reflect the changes made. The game wasn't perfect at launch, but it has blossomed into a great FPS you can enjoy with your friends and family.

Ps. To the people who downvote it because there aren't enough players, there are. And if you join us there will be more for new people buying the game.

There is something special about block games, cant put my finger on it. I just enjoy them ALOT.. :)

Lets start with the good stuff:
Multiplayer online is really fun. You can crete your own characters and choose your outfitt. There is also veichles avaliable to enjoy online: You can drive tanks, helicopters, hoverbikes or use stationary machinegun nests and more. All maps can be destroyed so never expect to be able to hide for to long. :) The game is created so that the community can make there own guns, skins or maps for sharing. Fun fun fun...

I would recommend that you buy a 4 pack and share with your friends for some fun gaming.

And sadly some tumbs down:
Honest opinion singleplayer is onslaught played in lan mode. Is it hard to put a menu singleplayer onslaugt? with some medals to unlock or something???

To publish the skins or guns content you created. The community has to vote ingame before it comes online. This may sound good on paper but then you must HAVE AN ACTIVE COMMUNITY AS WELL.

Texture DLC's should have been included ingame from the start. Because its promoted as a creative building game "maps and guns" so why not give the tools "textures" so people can make something usefull and fun???

And yes the score:
GFx 8-10 (Usefull comparisons Minecraft, Blockstorm, Murder Miners, Blockland)
Sfx 6-10 (its okay but nothing more)
Music 6-10 (Fits nicely to the game)
Gameplay 9-10 (Easy to create maps and fun to play online)

I will recommend this game because its really fun online. And who does not like blowing stuff to bits or creating your own maps to play with your friends. (( Get it on 50-75% SALE ))

Other games to look for: Blockstorm or Murder Miners

It is a pretty cool game even though the major part of the servers are empty (at least in my region) and it needs some improovements (perhapsw if you pause and unpause the game while piloting a hellicopter the sound effects of it will turn off) but over al i think it's pretty much awsome since i always dreamed of a minecraft-like shooter :D

This game isn't bad it is extremely fun with friends on the gamemode onslaught, you will have tons of fun there, and also in Lava survival, well there aren't very many people to play with though, but if more people got on it could be a great game, also the steam workshop has dozens of guns, skins, and maps. My verdict is a 7/10 a good game, but with flaws and hardly anyone to play with.

Great game for younger kids! You can create and use guns that YOU built...probably the best attribute about the game. I would suggest this game to 14 and under! Any older and there just too many other games that offer the same content and will hold your interest.

This game is a blast when there is a large server, I know from experience, but sadly, many servers are never full. I would reccomend this over Ace Of Spades if you don't mind waiting a while to find a good server. You might never find a good server, however, so do what you want. I just thought this game was awesomely fun.

The games is pretty cool with a variety of: guns, perks, killstreaks and vehicles to choose from. You can create your own maps, and all enviroment is destructable.

On the downside, It has a very low playerbase, don't let that stop you from buying it though because new players is the only way to save it XD
