Description
Release date: It's ready.
Fight loads of zombies and monsters, use flares to scare off enemies and light up the dark, experience a film-noir story, battle awesome boss monsters and play with your friends in local Multiplayer game modes. Thats Splatter. Anything else to mention?

The Game

Splatter - Just harder times is an oldschool top-down shooter with unique light/shadow gameplay mechanics. We have just released the first version of our game, you can get it at our website: www.splattergame.net.

The brief summary:
  • Top-down Shooter with unique light/shadow effects
  • Challenging fights with zombies, imps, cyborgs, bugs and some really big ♥♥♥ monsters
  • Flares to scare off the monsters and light up the way
  • Film-noir story mode with currently over 13 levels with boss battles, vehicle sequences, side missions and lots of secrets
  • Weapons upgradeable by 4 levels, gaining new abilities in the process
  • Arcade highscore game modes to compete for online leaderboards
  • Local Multiplayer: Deathmatch for up to 4 players on one computer
  • Local Multiplayer: Coop Survival against ever-growing hordes of enemies
  • Full controller support, support for multiple mice and keyboards
  • And last but not least: lots of Splatter in the process

The Story

The modern urban environment is a cold place in which knowing lots of people has replaced having real friends. Max is one of its inhabitants - alone admidst a grey crowd.
On a murky sunday evening he found himself reading at home when suddenly the world around him takes a turn for the apocalypse. Mankind suddenly was the minority, but the struggle for survival forges better bonds than the previous secure life ever could.
Is humanity actually worth saving? You might end up doing it anyways.

The Future

The first version of Splatter is already released. But of course we'd like to enhance it even further!

This is what we'd like to add to the Steam version:
  • Ports to Mac and Linux
  • The Freeplay mode: rebuild and defend a survivor's village with resources gathered from randomly generated surroundings
  • Voice Acting for all characters
  • New maps for all game modes
  • New Arcade modes to compete in, along with new leaderboards
  • New Multiplayer modes, such as Undead Football
  • Steam-Achievements
  • Personal online leaderboards specific to your friendlist at Steam

@gnarf, it's good to hear anyway

it looks a funny story!
gnarf  [author] May 21 @ 3:06am 
I want to port, yes. Won't be easy, though, because we're heavily DirectX-centered up to now. So I don't want to make a promise.
Des Nerger May 21 @ 2:28am 
Is a Linux port likely?
gnarf  [author] May 8 @ 2:10am 
Yes, for sure! I'll do it by hand if necessary. Please stay with me for a few weeks more and Splatter will be here on Steam. Then I'll get back to Holger and start figuring out what can be done to get you all your well-deserved Steam keys.

I also bought this game from IndieMeadow, any chances of getting a steam key when the game will be released?
gnarf  [author] May 3 @ 1:57am 
Nope. Didn't tried for a while, though, so I can't really say anything about it.

Are any of you in touch with IndieMeadow? They seemed to have disappeared.
gnarf  [author] Mar 25 @ 10:46am 
Ja. Melde Dich bitte per EMail wie in obigem Thread beschrieben, wenn Splatter dann auf Steam verfügbar ist
