I got sick of games with lootboxes and predatory monetization... with no single player missions or mod support. So our community started making this game instead. A shooter sandbox with all the features a game should have. Oh... and we're funding it on Patreon and giving it away for free.

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Before we get started, consider supporting us on Patreon to immediately get Steam keys to the multiplayer version of our game.

With that out of the way, let me be real with you. Early access is literally the only way this game can be made. You have no idea how small our team is, how little our resources are, and how long it has taken us to get this far.

Building an entire game that we launch 100% completed day one? That isn't an option for us. Seriously, it just straight up isn't possible.

But... if we start small and build this project slowly over time, using community feedback to steer us in the right direction? That works.

That's why we're in early access.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The only answer to this question... is that we will be in early access for as long as we need to be. The more that people spread the word, donate, or contribute to development... the faster we'll release out of early access. However, I have no intention to rush that process.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Our ultimate objective is to create a game that has all the same standard features you would expect from a typical multiplayer sandbox shooter. Vehicles, a variety of game modes, a mission editor, and hopefully more.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently the game is at our first major milestone... a fully fleshed out first person shooter with a focus on infantry gameplay. The game currently includes single player missions, cooperative game modes, multiplayer servers, mod support, and most other features you'd expect from a standard first person shooter. As time goes on, we intend to continue expanding on these features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“The game will be free. Forever. Patreon members and paid supporters may be granted access to alpha builds of the game, however Operation: Harsh Doorstop will never cost money to play.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Our community IS the development process. Our games have all started as community projects, and they will end as community projects.

If you are interested in helping to develop our games, please contact us. Community feedback is critical to our work, and we welcome anyone who is willing to help.”

About This Game

What is Operation: Harsh Doorstop?

Support us on Patreon to immediately get Steam keys to the multiplayer version of the game.

Operation: Harsh Doorstop is a shooter sandbox with all the features a game should have. Single player missions, cooperative modes, multiplayer servers, and Steam workshop support. These things should be basic, and all games should have them. However, for some reason... games rarely do anymore. That is the reason we started this project.

How much does Operation: Harsh Doorstop cost?

Operation: Harsh Doorstop is a free game. Our community members can donate to help fund development, but we still believe in making our game freely accessible to everyone. Not only is this important to us as a statement against corporate greed, but we also feel that game communities are healthier (and larger) when games are more accessible.

Is this game a tactical shooter?

Operation: Harsh Doorstop has strong roots in tactical shooter games such as Project Reality, Squad, and Red Orchestra (including multiple developers from those projects who have also worked on this game) however Operation: Harsh Doorstop has a much stronger emphasis on mod-ability and flexibility (similar to games such as Arma.) Ultimately we encourage everyone to play the game as you'd prefer to play it, and we intend to continue implementing additional parameters that allow players to customize their experience to their own liking.

When will Operation: Harsh Doorstop be released?

Our planned launch into early access is currently in February of 2023, however supporters on Patreon can get access to the multiplayer version of the game immediately. Additionally, our free single player demo is also currently available. Both the multiplayer playtest and demo will be shut down after our launch into early access.

Thank you so much for following our project, and we hope to see you on the battlefield soon.
