About This Game

Congratulations, you’ve just been cast in your first slasher movie! You’ve been given your big break by the notorious Director X. His methods have produced some of the finest grindhouse films ever committed to celluloid. Famous faces and big names are not what this director is looking for. Fresh faces are all Director X casts, and with your embarrassingly empty resume you’re as fresh as they come!

But seven other hopefuls are also in the running, so you’re going to need to prove your worth if you’re to hit the leading credits. You’re going to have to scratch, claw and strike to slash your way to the top. This job’s going to be murder!

Developed by Outerlight, Bloody Good Time takes a new and irreverent approach to multiplayer shooters. The game runs on the Valve’s Source engine, known for classic multiplayer shooters such as Half-Life and Team Fortress.

Key Features:

  • Be a deceitful bastard! Flush your enemies in the toilet, crash their heads on their plates when they eat, do whatever it takes to maim and kill other competitors in nasty and unexpected ways!
  • Use a full arsenal of wacky weapons including guns, a baseball bat, a frying pan, and even an exploding remote-controlled rat to transform the movie set into real mayhem!
  • Clash with up to 8 players online in a zany, first-person shooter, multiplayer experience like no other.
  • Choose from a variety of stereotypical B- movie characters, including the bikini beach babe, the stoner, the creepy clown and the super jock.
  • From Spring Break Beach to the Horror House to the Vegas Hotel, discover what’s behind the Hollywood set in these unique multiplayer maps.
  • Developed by Outerlight, best known for their work on The Ship and the Half-Life mod of the Ship. This Scottish-based developer brings a great combination of humor and quality game play to Bloody Good Time.
  • Running on the Valve’s Source engine, Bloody Good Time comes from the same pedigree of classic, online multiplayer shooters such as Half-Life, Team Fortress and Counter-Strike.

A pretty innovative game (although see also The Ship and a couple of others in the same ballpark) that has its flaws, but can be pretty fun once you get the hang of it all. Basically you play an actor that needs to kill the other actors in the movie so you can be the star.

Although there are a few game modes, the core is The Hunt - you have one opponent to kill, while someone else is tasked with killing you. So essentially you have a FPS version of Chompy Chomp Chomp and you rush about collecting weapons and items to help you, heading to where your target is on the minimap (or you get regular notifications when they move to a new area of the map), while trying to avoid traps and other people who might be out to kill you themselves.

The learning curve is pretty steep - you really need to know the maps intimately, including what each area is called, and what the quickest routes to get there from where you are is (there are usually dozens of routes as there are ladders, stairs, doors, corridors - pretty much every room/area has 4 or 5 ways out, and many have 10 or more. You also need to know where the weapons and traps are and how to use some of the more esoteric weapons like the rat bomb (and when to use it), and how to best use the bonus items which can be game changing when properly applied. Plus you need to know where all the traps are, and critically where they can be triggered from so that you know when it is safe to pass through. And then you need to track which weapons are currently good to use, as well as knowing the ins and outs of the different game modes, which will be switched every few minutes.

The weapons are not really balanced, but this is kind of as designed - this is mitigated somewhat by the scoring system - the good weapons usually get enough use they rarely ascend to a being a high scoring weapon after the first round, but in practise getting an easy kill for average score beats a strategy of trying to successfully use every awkward weapon in a cycle as they get to 5*. Another issue is the Blood Money round, which basically scores way to highly, such that most of the rest of the game often becomes a tie breaker between the people that did well in that one round.

Once you have the hang of it, and have some friends who also do, things finally click and you will probably start having a Bloody Good Time, but I can see plenty of people deciding that getting to that point isn't worth the payoff, as even then this game is quirky, flawed and not particular well balanced.

Amazing game, but the lack of players is the biggest downside. If there were more maps, I would be happier too, but the maps that are already here are amazing, so no big complaints.
Overall, buy this so there are more people!

Such an joy to play.

The basic premise of the game is centered around the idea that you (tha player) will be controlling any actor from the movie that you like, altho the vast majority of them tend to be pretty generic in it's own sickening way, there are some than can actually get a couple of laughs out of you (such as the clown ironically enough).
As you enter to different maps that are diverse and unique you begin realizing that the idea of the game is to murder everybody in different ways in order to get more stars, the stars serve as points, more points, more score, therefore resulting in you, beating all your other opponents.

Basically you keep finding weapons around the stage that even tho after a while they may get repetitive they're still fun to use, besides, there are so many of them.
There are certain weapons wich cycle as you play the game in real time, What their cycling? You may ask, the level of stars you get when you kill other player with them, again, more stars, better for you.
There are also traps wich you can use to even get more points (let's call them points from now on), sadly a lot of the traps don't work nearly as well as some may expect, but it's a minor complain in such an enjoyable game.

I must say that i was pleseantly surprised that i enjoyed my time with this game as much as i did, i wasn't expecting it to be a joy. It's like a more complex Team Fortress without really sacrificing much of it's charm. Oh, it has a bunch of options for pc and runs extremely well in case you're asking.

A Bloody Good Time.


Also in Single Player (Playing against Bots).

I found that playing elimination with
three bots on hard was ok challenging.

last time i checked (which was around fall 2013) there was no servers for this multiplayer game i'll check if this has changed but DO NOT BUY BLOODY GOOD TIME UNLESS YOU LIKE PLAYING WITH BOTS if it was free i'd give it a 4/10 but considering its $5 i'd give it a -50/10

enough said bloody good time is a bloody rip off

Wonderful game, with simple rules.

Kill.

Oh, and it's freakishly cheap.
I got it for free with I am Alive and I have more hours in this than that.

Bloody good time is a good FPS PvP or PvCP. 8 characters to select to play as and 3 good but small maps. The whole aim of the game is to kill people without being caught by security guards. Use five star weapons to have the most stars out of other players or bots and win your match. There are in fact game modes as well, only a very little though. There are really good guns. I mean if you like assault rifles or sniper rifles this game has it. How about syringes for people who want to be a deadly doctor/nurse? What about a katana for those who wanna be one of those samurai's or ninja's? How about the flamethrower or flare gun for those who want to be a pyro? Or rocket launchers and TNT's for those who wanna be destructive? Then thats the kinda game you want to get.
