About This Game

Recursive pain is a fast-paced third person multiplayer shooter that brings many original ideas and gameplay mechanics to the online-shooters genre.

Novelty comes first – original gameplay mechanics

The main purpose of the project is to constantly develop, continuously search, test and introduce new gameplay mechanics.

BLINDSIGHT - Navigate in complete darkness using echolocation.

DILEMMA - Altered gravity. The players can run on any surfaces, as well as use the teleportation. Be careful because enemies can be anywhere. Nevertheless, you can be anywhere as well.

BLANK - Shoot paintballs in order to paint any objects and enemies. Do not stay in the painted areas or you will be quickly noticed

ADVAITA - on this map player can see only a small area of reality.

POISON - The snow is poisonous, so it causes damage to players. Shoot paintballs to pave your way. Move only on the painted areas in order not to cause damage to yourself.

And this is just the beginning!
