Community Playdate!

Do you have Gunscape? Do you want to play with us? Then join us!

We’re working on a new project (you’ll see it soon), but to be able to do it, we need your help! Yes, we need the community! And what you have to do is quite easy, we need you guys to play Gunscape with us.

Every Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. AEDT - Sydney Time (or Monday at 11:00 p.m. GMT; 6:00 p.m. CDT), we will make a room in the game (a different platform every week, so console users, we'll come to you next week!) to play a few community-made maps and we would like you to join us!

Interested? Then pay attention to the following details for our first Community Playdate:

#Discussions_QuoteBlock_Author
Platform: Steam (this week, we'll switch platforms every week so everyone gets a chance)
Day and time: Tuesday, 10:00 a.m. AEDT (other time zones)
User: starsapphire
Room password: communityplaydate
Server: AUS

Console users, stay tuned, because we’ll make another post announcing the playdate details for either Xbox One or PS4 in a week! Check out our Twitter and Facebook for the announcement ;)

The idea is to play different maps between 30 minutes to an hour. We can’t promise that you all will be able to play, but we’ll try to have as many people as we can! And remember that this will happen every week, so you’ll get plenty of chances!

(Also, hi, guys! I’m Patricia or as you can see, starsapphire @ steam, and I’m part of the team here at Blowfish Studios. It’s me you’ll play with, and if we’re lucky, a few programmers and artists will join us too.)

And remember that all of this has a purpose. If you play with us, you might find yourself somewhere else… maybe ;)

“One of my most anticipated games of the year has to be the indie gem, Gunscape.”

About This Game

Inspired by the first-person shooters of the past that we loved, we're taking all the most memorable elements and putting them in a toolkit to be used and combined however you want. At its heart, Gunscape is an FPS construction kit. It's a game that lets you go wild with your creativity in a pumping action sandbox! Gunscape does this by providing easy-to-use tools based on a block-placement interface everybody's already familiar with to create single-player campaigns, co-op maps and multiplayer arenas and the functionality to share your creations with your friends. Don't like building stuff and just want to blast your way through hordes of monsters or duel with other players? Maps can also be shared, played and voted on by the whole world, so you'll always have new levels at your fingertips!

Standard Edition


Get access to all main game themes with the Standard Edition of Gunscape! It includes blocks, props, enemies, avatars and weapons from the Bathyscape, Bierenstein, Final Fortress, Electro, Relay, Too Rockin’, Siegecraft, Orifice and Tremor.

Gold Edition


Get access to all current and future game content with the Gold Edition of Gunscape! Initially it includes blocks, props, enemies, avatars and weapons from the Standard Edition plus the Seasonal, Alienware and Gold theme packs. Also receive the Gunscape Original Sound Track DLC! The first extra DLC will be the Seismic pack, coming in Q2 2016 and this will be available free of charge to Gold Edition purchasers.

World Building


The game is organised into themes taken from the entire genre of FPS games, from the early classics to the modern triple-A stealth and war shooters. Each theme set contains unique world building blocks, player models, enemies (and bosses!), music tracks, skyboxes, special level elements (like traps and teleporters) and--of course--GUNS (plus bombs, bats, swords, flamethrowers, chainsaws, rocket launchers and much, much more. 38 weapons planned so far!). Assets from different sets are meant to be combined freely when building your worlds and the selection of content contained in each one has been carefully selected and planned out to avoid redundancy and to represent the truly iconic parts of the game it was inspired by.

It's important to us that anybody should be able to create their own levels. In the days of Doom and Build engine games level editors were simple enough that it didn't take long to learn how to create a whole new adventure for the player. The truly skilled could create impressive feats of architecture, but the rest of us could still create enjoyable challenges thanks to tightly-designed game engines that focused on making the core gameplay pure fun. In a game like that it doesn't matter how many times you test and tweak the layout to make your map the best it can be, or how abstract the level becomes as a result. This is the driving philosophy behind Gunscape. It's also the reason we've chosen to start by polishing the multiplayer experience in the pre-alpha demo, as we feel this is one of the best ways to develop and tweak the core gameplay.

World Sharing


Of course, there's no point in creating great play experiences if nobody else gets to play them! Gunscape has a server to share your creations and the game has a built in map browser with filtering and voting system, so that anybody can have full access to every public player-created level, regardless of which theme packs were used to make them. The available demo (more on this later) has game levels we have put together and we'll continue to add more as we complete new content to help show how much potential there is for you to create some truly amazing things with Gunscape!

Game Features

  • Solo, split-screen and online co-operative multiplayer level creation! Build maps at your own pace or invite friends to help out! Jump in and out of action mode while editing to test your level on the fly or just to blast one another.
  • Single-player campaign mode: play or create a sequence or branching tree of levels with or without a story. Build a whole self-contained adventure or a gauntlet of fearsome challenges.
  • Co-op mode: invite one or more friends to tackle a dedicated co-op map with you or take a single-player map and crank up the difficulty.
  • Multiplayer arenas: build a map with multiple spawn points and powerups and invite your friends or host a public game for some brutal online action using one of many multiplayer modes, including classics such as free-for-all and team deathmatch, capture the flag variants, king of the hill and domination/point capture modes and different tag/infection variants. We plan on including a lot of these, and to continue adding more, including flexible objectives like race to the finish which could be used to build multiplayer rocket jump courses or other types of challenge maps such as a competitive adventure through trap-filled dungeons, or hunter which awards points for killing monsters so you can create your own MP dinosaur safari.
  • Cross-platform multiplayer: optional where it counts, but great to have for cross-platform co-op!
  • Global and persistent map sharing: anyone can play the levels you share regardless of platform
  • 8 multiplayer match modes

reminds me of a half life-like game. run around, find a story, fight friends, PLAY FOR FREE, you could almost put the tag to be classic, blood, guns... 8.5/10!

choose from a double barrel shotgun to a large extraterrestrial cannon. the reason i liked this game the most was of the co-op ability. you and your friend are running around and then, ah! A NAZI!!! this game is also minecraft-like with the ablility to build worlds. probably, you were wondering, whats it with the standered and gold? well, for more content, you have to get gold or standered. thats howe they get the money. if you just want to run aroun in a server and kill people or go co-op in campaign, this games for you. if you want to build, might want to get gold or standered

hope you enjoyed the review.

This game is pretty good.

I like everything this game has to offer as a non-builder, but as a builder, it sucks!

-You cannot use alot of the textures/blocks you see on the default campaign maps which sucks since I'm working on a mildly secret map for now.

-The blocks seem a bit large in my opinion.

Only play this game if you don't plan on doing these two things:

1- Spend money on it.

2- Don't feel like creating, but instead playing other people's maps.

All-in-all, good for players, just not builders.

WOW! It doesn't let you do everything you might want to do if you want to make your own FPS, but this is the easiest to use FPS creator I have ever played that actually allows you to include some real strategy in your levels. I'm not sure if there's a way to set it up so that when a player dies they automatically restart the level and everything resets, but if there isn't, there should be. My biggest complaint so far is the lack of weapons and enemies. There do not appear to be that many even in the Gold Edition. I really hope they add a ton more than what they already have. There are way too few for a game that's all about making your own game. I would also like the option if possible to change the color of some of the bad guys, just cause that would be kind of cool!

Edit 6/24/2016,

I forgot to mention, speaking of the enemies, I would really like to see some human badguys other than Nazis. Nazis make great villians, If you want to make a game about WW2, but what if one really doesn't want to make a WW2 themed level? Gangsters or generic modern soldiers would also nice.

Edit 6/26/2016,

I just noticed that the "Nazis" in this don't really resemble "Nazis," but they still kind of remind me of them.

It is a very good game. I really enjoyed playing the campaign the only disadvantage is there is not many players playing this game so you rarely see on a server a different gamemode than Co-op

This game has great potential, but, unfortunatley, 75% of the game is locked behind paywalls.

Also, this game is terribly optimized for Linux. Graphics bugs litter the game, with enemies and certain lighting FX appearing as masses of polygons, and the fact that the default control scheme is controller, with seemingly no way to change it.

Really love this game, i\'ve been following it since it popup on steam and i\'ve
activly helped fix bugs with the developers. It has a fun map builder that you
can build maps with friends, and it\'s satifying to see your creation when you
save it and play it with other people. The community may be small right now,
but i believe with enough people invite their friends to the game i\'m sure it\'ll
become wider and funner community!

Over all, i say give it a try. Install it and play a few games and build your own
map. It\'s worth it.

I haven't even bought the full game and I'm already enjoying myself, even though it's got some things you need to pay for, there's plenty of community made maps to try, just by playing the maps made for me it's already a ton of fun.

Definitely recommend this game, and the game doesn't take long to install.

My rating 8.5/10

The game is free in the sense that it's kinda a try before you buy. They give you two packs to build your own map with, another five packs are in a $20 bundle and to get every other pack you don't have (i think there is currently two others not in the Standard) and all future packs is $40, which is alright when you consider the simplicity of it's main feature, which is level creation. Each pack is based off of a popular game (Too Rockin' = Turok, Bathyscape = Bioshock) with unique enemies and weapons. It's only real problem is a small community. I'd wait a while before getting Gold, but its worth getting Standard (I will once i get mo' $$)

This is possibly the best game on my PC. In 1 1/2 days I already put 9 hours into it, and I plan to put much more in. For what this game lacks in graphics, it makes up for in everything else. The build mode leads to some really creative maps, it's very rare to not see any public servers to join, the weapons are all fun to use, the PFG is a wonderful reference to the DOOM series, controls are simple and can be changed, there's a TON of maps, and a lot more in Gunscape.

I like this game and it is fun. Yes it dose missing some thing but it is the second real sandbox game like minecraft. It would be nice if they would add alien vs predator. Add animals and normal people. Make textures a little less blocky. It's not what i don't like it but it would be nice. The last thing is NPC AI is a little old. If they made it better it would increase fun by A LOT.

So to conclude i like it but needs improvement.
7/10 just because of this reasons.
