Thanks for buying ShapeRockets!

Help us make this community great and post screenshots, start discussions, tell us what you love, and let us know if you find anything weird.

Above all, go blast some shapes!

Oh, and don't forget to soak in the little story and messages in the tutorial. And take an online break in the Endurance mode and see how high you can score!

Don't forget to reference the quick guide if you need it.

We can't wait to play online with you!

Playing online will be a quick, smooth experience for all!

One item of note: we do use Steam's P2P networking and listen server functionality to run ShapeRockets. For 99% of you, this will all run fine as expected automatically!

In test, while rare, we found some routers have ports closed that need to be open for ShapeRockets to find games. But it's a quick and normal thing to tweak. So if for some reason you have one of those rare routers, simply refer to this Steam page and you should be ready to go!

Hey everyone! Matt here. I'm the Creative Director at Echohead Games. Years ago I was the Lead Designer of the original Scribblenauts - a game where you could do everything. For Echohead's first title, I wanted to try a game where you just do TWO things: shoot or run. ShapeRockets is a fast-paced FPS with rock, paper, scissors rules. It will be easy to pick up and take awhile to master.

I can't wait for all of you to compete online starting October 28th! Visit the forums and ask us anything!
