    Why dont post a little video how the game should look like? I mean $20 is pretty much for an indy shooter, should be something special then. I bought the first game via a bundle, fun as long as i played it, which was not that far, would have got needed some cheats Which game engine is used? How many levels? Cool bosses? Multiplayer? Weapons? Cutscenes? Expected play time... A little bit more info would not hurt.

      I am working on it. The game kicked off few days ago and I was writing des doc, making website, and performing some terrain tests. $20 is a lot? Hmm.. Check out Interstellar Marines. It will never run on Linux though. They are asking $40 for their game. The game has been in development since at least 2008. They raised afaik 1 million dollars, which allowed then to hire more artists to more art done. I am asking for $5 toward a jump start. Meaning I can work on the game without stressing how I'm going to eat/feed my family/pay bills.

      There is a website that tells you some details. Playtime? I don't know. Depends how good you are Darkplaces engine is the engine of choice, co-op and dm will be present (besides single player, which is what I am focusing on). Cutscenes? Did I mention that the game is old school? If you want cutscenes, go to the movie theater

      At any rate, there are legendary developers who made great games and as they were making them, devs got the whole picture of how many of everything will be in the game. I will be releasing information as I get stuff to show. I can tell you 5 levels, but that doesn't mean you will beat the game in 5 hrs (this doesn't meant I am going to have only 5 levels).

      Thank you for playing and enjoying Steel Storm: Burning Retribution. Although, you will never ever see any of my games associated with HIB / Wolfire, ever.

        $20 really isn't much but asking for $5 for what is essentially nothing (from the perspective of what can only be describe as "investors") is a bit meh.

        Maybe Phoronix should have held off before there was something worth "reporting" but phoronix is what phoronix does, you get use to just buying a tonne of salt when it comes to phoronix and games.

        I will considering an "investment" if there is something worth considering investing in, at the moment I see better return prospects from a timeshare salesrep, at least they have brochures and hot sales rep's to try to conn you out of your money

            I think you are misunderstanding, if/when something is shown to be worth money being handed over then is will.

                hi motorsep a pistol as the first weapon is boring watch the lady on your front page on your website this lady do have 2 blades...

                i want see throwing stones or throwing Knives or similar in blade version as a first weapon
                don't make it so easy. in the first level you can earn stones and knifes for throwing.

                "Pistol" should be a "higher" weapon.

                for example a spewing pipe for toxic needles are also extremely deathly and low-tech.
                you should start with low-tech weapons and then grow up to high-tech weapons.
                for example the Twinbow crossbow





                first weapon= throwing stone upgrade to steel ball-spin upgrade to explosives+spin
                2. weapon= throwing knifes and upgrade to toxic knifes
                3. Weapon=spewing pipe with toxic needles.
                4.Weapon =crossbow (twinbow version)and upgrade to high explosive
                4. Weapon = Pistol and upgrade to high explosive bullets

                and you should limited the usage of the pistol by low ammunition

                in shorts words don't make the same boring mistake as all the other ego shooter.

                  There are for sure some nice first person shooters using the DP engine but most of em are free. Why would somebody want to buy a 08/15 shooter (or how you call it: oldschool) when there are games with much more levels (and players for mp) out there for free with the same look? Interesting would be a shooter with a much better gfx, maybe Unigine engine (the demos looked good, but Oilrush is definitely no good example) with a cool environment like the new demo in development. I personally like easy shooters, best with reasonable auto save points (in too many shooters you need quicksave all the time when you dont want to cheat) but the gfx should be really worth looking at. Best would be when it is so simple that you can beat the game using a game pad (like rage). I definitely understand why you want to create a fps with mp: because it is very simple to check a serial for online play to avoid piracy (at least for the mp part, sp you can not stop usually). Have fun creating your levels, but most likely i will not buy it, maybe when it is in a very cheap bundle (well i collect those, even when i often dont play em).

                      I am sorry guys, but I know what I want in my game. This is not a "community is making the game and one dev is implementing it" project. Be patient and you shall see it And after that you can decide whether you want to play it or not.

                      I'd love to see some examples of good singleplayer FPS games, free, for Linux. Mind you, Nexuiz, Xonotic and AA are not good examples. Warsow looks good, but still, mp-only game.

                      I tried setting up bitcoin in my e-Shoppe, but it was a p.i.t.a. and it didn't work. While bitcoin is cool underground feature, I am not gonna bother with it. I might as well ask for golden coins instead. Hard currency so to speak :P

                        very sad :-( i like bitcoin...

                        you don't need a hard currency you always can use a higher price to make it hard to lose for you.

                          Nope, I won't work on such project. While there are game devs who will work on anything that people will want them to work on, I prefer working on what I like and if like minded people like playing it, cool. If not, the we will get something like Steel Storm, that turned out to be very niche game (I will probably not work on anything like Steel Storm, top-down arcade shooter with vehicles only, for years to come).

                          Well, the mankind has been using gold and silver through all it's history and about 100 years ago paper bills and nickel coins were invented (which by itself have no value).

                            Hi motorsep. Just want to say I will be putting in a pre-order very soon for this. Loved Steel Storm (got it from HiB #3) and am interested in an FPS take on things, so good luck!

                            Though I have to ask...

                            I think I read you make this comment as well on OMGUbuntu. What happened to sour your opinion of the HiB/Wolfire? You can't just say that and leave us waiting!

                              I am sorry I am not gonna elaborate more. There is an interview with me on Gaming on Linux and there are some details about the issue. Btw, thanks for loving Steel Storm

                                In fact its much better to not use gold and silver as a currency because you need gold and silver to build useful products.
                                Its useless to put gold into your safe strongbox no one do have any benefit in this kind of usage.

                                modern CPUs for example use gold
                                gold is a good anti-rust protection.

                                gold as a currency is useless. (read NO PRACTICAL USE FROM THE GOLD like anti-rust-protection)
