About This Game

Setback is an online, free-to-play arena shooter. The game is built around a core mechanic called “setbacking”, where a player is rewinded back through time. Players compete in various movement-oriented game modes, using different weapons and consumable pick-up items.

Rewind your opponents back through time

Every player in Setback is protected by invisible armor. When the armor breaks, the player is rewinded back to wherever they were a couple of seconds ago. To weaken the armor of other players, you can choose among different weapons, including automatic rifle and grenade launcher, all infused with time-altering technology. Or, if done right, you can turn the tide of a match by using one of the consumable pick-up items, such as the slow-down field.

Compete in movement-based game modes

The various game modes in Setback are designed with fast-paced mobility in mind, keeping the players on their feet at all times. To progress through the stage, you can be creative with several different movement mechanics, like sliding and surface bashing. The race mode, for instance, is a race by foot through a sequence of checkpoints. Other game modes include new takes on already well-known concepts, such as King of the Hill and Capture the Flag.
