BIG Crimsonland 1.1.0 update with TYPOSHOOTER and more!

Greetings. After a healthy long beta, the new version is finally here!

Tons of stuff has changed. The biggest single feature is bringing back the classic Typ'o'shooter game mode - with leaderboards, of course. The mode is unlocked if you've completed the quests in normal difficulty.

We've also fixed ALL the major complaints about features missing compared to 2003 version. You can now use Telekinesis perk to directly pick up the perks by hovering them with your mouse for a while. The perks are now enabled in quests by default. Spideroids give more experience points. Pulse Gun + Angry Reloader perk is back. + many smaller tweaks.

Some of you have requested that we'd add DLCs to the game. More closely, some of you guys wanted to have the old 2003 version of Crimsonland and the game soundtrack as relatively inexpensive DLCs. Sorry to let you down, we're not doing the DLCs... We've added them to the main game FOR FREE! You can now select if you want to play the new (superior) Crimsonland or the old classic 2003 version when you launch the game using Steam. You can listen to the sound track placed in install folder under crimsonland-soundtrack folder.

Here's a full list of changes:
-Added back the Typ'o'shooter game mode! It will unlock after you play through the quest mode in normal difficulty.
-Telekinesis perk now picks up the powerup up after hovering your mouse over it for a second.
-Perks are now enabled by default in Quest mode (you can still change the settings in gameplay options).
-The old (2003) Crimsonland classic version is included in the install directory.
-The soundtrack is included in the game folder under crimsonland-soundtrack.
-New D3D9 based renderer is slightly faster and handles resolution change better.
-Multimonitor resolution selection should work better now.
-Blitz survival mode now starts harder but ramps up slower (all bosses don't come at you almost at once now).
-Pulse Gun + Angry Reloader combo works again as Pulse Gun has 3 ammo in all modes except Weapon Picker. You can't reload the weapon.
-Spideroids give slightly more experience points.
-Spider boss projectiles do proper damage now.
-Toxic Avenger now kills bosses as well if you can afford to take one hit.
-Fixed (rare) weapon jamming bug that prevented autoreloading your weapon occasionally.
-Leaderboards rendering performance improved. (Scrolling down to top 100k rank doesn't cause framerate drops).
-Added internal localization support, preparing for possible localizations. Clarification: only English supported in this build.
-Steam Cloud is now enabled in all versions.
-Main menu has friendly links to our next two games: Neon Chrome and Xenoraid!
-Dropping more weapons during the first 60 seconds of survival and blitz game mode runs will enable you to get the weapon you want more likely.
-Many many many smaller tweaks.

Please note that this update is for the PC version at this point.

So there you have it. If someone still thinks that the 2003 has something over this new version, speak up! :)

See you at the leaderboards!

BTW, I hope it's not too bold to plug our current Greenlight campaigns here as well:

Xenoraid - a non-bullet-hell shmup which entered Greenlight last week:
Xenoraid Greenlight

King Oddball - a weird but addictive little game we made. It needs just a tiny push to get through GL:

Thanks!

7.5 / 10 – IGN

“Crimsonland is a quality twin-stick shooter.”
7 / 10 – Game Informer

“If you like shooting infinite hordes of monsters from a top-down perspective, Crimsonland is one of the best options you have.”

About This Game



Thousands of aliens, zombies, giant spiders, mutant lizards, and more are on the attack - can you survive the onslaught? In Crimsonland you will unlock new weapons and perks constantly improving your abilities and arsenal. Your screen will be filled with literally hundreds of monsters and thousands of giblets. Grab your gun and prepare for endless hours of intense top-down shooter fun!

The original Crimsonland was released in 2003. After the game was greenlit at the end of 2013, 10tons decided to give the game a complete tune-up. The brand new 2014 version introduces countless gameplay fixes, a new chapter with new enemies, new perks, and new weapons. On top of that we've done a complete art overhaul!



What are perks? Perks are like talents in an RPG game. You earn XP by killing monsters and with XP you earn levels. After leveling up you get to choose a perk. For example, a perk called Fastloader enables you to reload extremely fast. During a session perks will stack up a and every game will be a bit different. You'll unlock perks during the quest mode after which they become available in the survival game modes.



We've created a huge arsenal of 30 unique weapons ranging from the humble pistol to the mysterious Shrinkifier 5k. The weapons are unlocked by playing the quest mode and they become available in survival game modes as well. The better your arsenal - the better chances you have at scoring higher outside the quest mode.



Crimsonland features up to four player local co-op. All game modes including the quest can be played in co-op mode. There are also separate leaderboards for co-op games so gather your friends and show the internet who wields the gauss shotgun like a pro!



  • Quest mode with six chapters
  • FIVE survival modes: Survival, Rush, Blitz, Weapon Picker, and Nukefism
  • 30 unique weapons
  • 55 awesome perks
  • Steam leaderboards: global and friends
  • Leaderboards for co-op: Gang up on them!
  • Steam achievements & stats
  • Full controller support
  • Up to four player local co-op

Best survival game if you’re into this type of game 10/10

The quest mode was nice and I love the fact that they added new weapons to the new version.
They kept the 2003 version with the new one so that you can choose to play the old one if you can remember the old one (I DO)!

Worth the time and money!

If you enjoy playing top-down heavy action packed games that require very little effort to play, but are still loads of fun, then this is the game for you.

The game doesn't really have a story line, other than progressively going deeper into an alien infested world until finally completely destroying them. In short, the game focuses more on the gameplay than the engaging story. To give a short summary of the game: begin level; kill monster for first weapon; kill more monsters for pickups such as more weapons and boosters; kill enough to level up and upgrade permanent perks; repeat process until level is completed (unless you play survival mode).

This version is a bit different to the original. One of the differences being the installment of achievements which if I might add is really difficult to get at times, but I managed to do it. The playability in my opinion is very high as games don't usually last very long but is still fun enough in order to come back and improve on your last score. Also, the game offers a multiplayer feature which I haven't tried out yet, but I understand it only works on LAN, so don't bother buying it for a buddy in hopes you can play online.

Because I love these kinds of games, I definitely recommend this to anyone that enjoys the same kinds of games, or who is willing to give this game a shot.

The game itselfs is nice and makes fun for short time, (dont got the luck to play coop until now but fore sure double the fun) but it have its annoying moments.

The gameplay reminds of games like alien shooter or nation red: Mass destruction of thousands of enemies with perks and powerups.

The AI try always to surround you, it makes the game a bit more interessting but even so annyoing. (and mostly unfair when you have screen full of enemies)

The powerups and weapons spawns randomly, this brings changes into the battle, but sometimes you just feel fooled, when you fight bosses or a huge mass of enemies and get no really good weapons.

The survivor modes are totaly F*cked up, after collected 100k points (that will dont take 2mins)
you get totaly overrun by enemies, only "quest" mode is nearly enjoyable.

The game is an awesome option for coop, but when playing solo- you will hate it very often

I recommend to buy it while a sale or when the price gets reduced or better go buy nation red or alien shooter (same gameplay but more fair to play)

A fairly simply but enjoyable top-down shooter. Winning some of the quest levels can come down to luck of the draw when it comes to what guns and perks become available early vs. what you're fighting, so it's not a very structurally designed game, but as a mindless shooter I find it quite enjoyable.

Very addictive game, with lots of weapons, power-ups and game modes and large numbers of enemies.
Simple graphics.
Good sound effects.
Simple music, but very few soundtracks.
Easy gameplay.
The game gets repetitive after a while, but it's still fun to pass your time and relax with mindless shooting.

Product received for free
Basic Information
Title: Crimsonland
Developer: 10tons Ltd.
Publisher: 10tons Ltd.
Genre: Top-down Shooter

General Impression
Crimsonland is a 2014 reboot of a very good arcade game released 11 years prior. The top-down shooting mechanics are complemented by pleasant graphics and a surprisingly large arsenal. So you will never complain that this title got boring fast. It actually provides enough fun and diversity, that even its “story mode” is enjoyable. The titular sanguinary gore is as always, a sight to behold. The only flaw I could find to this game, is the difficulty which scales wildly and can push towards rage quitting even a Buddhist monk. Throw in a co-op mode plus a complex perk system and you have yourself one of the best top-down shooters in recent memory.

Strong Points
+ Interesting graphics and gameplay mechanics.
+ Steam Trading Cards & Achievements.

Weak Points
- Unbalanced difficulty.

Rating 8/10

If you played the original Crimsonland, you should play this. If you did not, you should still play this!

Top-down shooter with main quest mode and several other game modes (including one hidden game mode). Multiple weapons to choose from, various powerups, and a roguelike element of levelling and 'perks' - playthroughs of levels are very short, so can be played even if you only have a few minutes to spare (as opposed to dedicating several hours just to progress, like some other games).

Only downside is that if you want to play multiplayer, its local co-op,
Would be 10/10 if included steam-based multiplayer. (*cough* developers, I'm talking to you)

9/10

It's fun with the Steam Controller. It runs on my old X301 that I keep for browsing and watching movies. It's fun. And I'm going to get my wife to join in, because it's got local co-op. So, yeah, Worth it. I mean, I did get it during the Summer Sale, but it looked worth a shot, so I actually downloaded it, and yeah, good times.

An excellent arena shooter. With multiple difficulty levels, lots of perks to unlock and choose from, varying game modes, and leaderboards to compete on, Crimsonland is good for many hours of fun killing aliens, zombies, and spiders.

Since the recent update, this version of the game also includes the old 2003 version (which has somewhat different mechanics) as a free bonus, which is great for anyone who is nostalgic for the old game.
