More than a thousand backers and some great newss!
Thank you everyone: Great News and Kickstarter Reminder :)
Release date: Second quarter 2014
INSECTION is a 4-players co-op sci-fi FPS that will throw you back into your favorite moments from the Classic Sci-Fi shooters and films you loved.

Development Stage: Pre-Alpha

INSECTION aims to create a unique gameplay experience, in which the player is immersed in the game’s universe and each moment feels real. The goal is for each play-through of INSECTION to be different, something achieved with the variety of gameplay features and modes we have designed.

Inspired by some of the most influential genre defining sci-fi shooters of our time, we aim to create a game that will give players a sting from the past, when shooters were fast paced and health didn’t regenerate automatically.


In INSECTION you join a rag tag crew of 4 military veterans that pursue a career in the newly inhabited universe, doing any job available, from ‘cargo’ escort to ‘clean-up’ to straight-up-mercenary operations.
Taking the role of the game’s character - Dante, Derek, Dona or Dylan - you will get to experience the vibrant stylized world of INSECTION and find out what’s really going on. Your participation in the battle is crucial in order to progress through the story. You do this by completing goals in the missions, while shredding through alien insects hordes with your team.

Insection takes place in a futuristic universe, a couple hundred years from now. After the Final World War, mankind inhabited other planets and has spread around the universe. Their first stop: New Earth.
The team gets involved in Insection’s story when it was summoned by OMNIA Industries, the corporation holding the monopoly around the universe in almost everything. Omnia hires the team to regain control of space, trade and mining stations -even whole planets- that are threatened by a new unknown alien insect species that is spreading around the galaxy, threatening OMNIA’s profit and the lives of many innocent civilians.

Unique Gameplay

We’ve invested in the creation of a unique 4 player co-op gameplay experience, featuring goal based missions and unique gameplay modes, but also an amazing universe. We‘ve added humor in a way that doesn’t distract you from the seriousness of the situation and the need to restore balance in the Universe of INSECTION.

Gameplay Modes
  • Competitive
    In Competitive mode, you will be able to play along with 7 other friends, in two teams of 4 that will compete against each other, in the same level, to reach a common objective. Like fighting four other people wasn’t enough, in Competitive mode insects are your enemies too. So keep your eyes and ears open and take them all out!

  • Versus
    Always wanted to fight for the other side? It’s your time to shine. Take out the opposing team insect-style.
    Two teams consisting of 4 players each, choose sides: humans or insects and throw themselves into battle. Your goal is to take out the opposing team using your explosive and versatile arsenal that spares no one as a human or by using your multiple jaws, claws and sharp teeth or your acidic spit as an Insect.

  • Hardcore
    Losing track of your team in Hardcore mode is not an option. There are no character outlines through walls and obstacles. Communication is key in INSECTION to succeed and you’ll need it more than anything in Hardcore. Limited visual cues means that you won’t be notified if a Crawler is feasting on a teammate of yours.
    Keep track of your ammo and use it wisely, ammo pick-ups are even more scarce in Hardcore.

  • Defense
    Good old location defense. Stand your ground and eliminate the waves of incoming insects. Work with your team and be efficient, the insects are certainly doing the same.


  • Intelligent and Adaptive A.I.

    The H.I.V.E A.I. reads and acknowledges every move you make. The insects know when they have been hit and act accordingly, while they report back to the hive to strategically spawn more and more powerful insects to take you out. The A.I. also reads your skills, how well you wield a weapon and which one, calling the appropriate reinforcements that will be more resistant to the weapon you’re using. You’d better wield the other weapons as well as your favorite one.

  • Augmentations

    At the beginning of each level you get to choose augmentations for your character that will give you that little extra push in battle. Carefully designed, augmentations will not unbalance the game, and will add to the fun.

    The weapons available are more than appropriate to take out whole colonies of insects. Featuring secondary fire and aim-down-sights modes, your weapons are able to dissect or BBQ whole armies of nasty slimy monsters. With 8 weapons and various explosives available, you will have no excuse.

Insection is is being developed with Unity Technologies’ Unity Game Engine

There will be dedicated servers provided for Online Play.

Dafür das das Spiel Dx 11 nutzt sind die Texturen echt low.Ich hoffe das die Charaker färbung ein Roboter der Pink und Roten etwas an hat der sicht richtig gay aus.(Nix gegen schwule aber so etwas sollte nicht in ein Game.Wenn es schon um Aliens geht sollten die Menschen Wengistens coole Nano Kleidung haben.Denn das Konzept scheint nicht ganz durch dacht worden sein.Super viele Sprachen scheint Singel,Multi und Coop zu bieten.Aber ich finde das Spiel hat zu wenig Details.Ein tipp an die Entwickler macht kleinere Karten.Mit Schnee,Wüste,Jungel oder auch Raumstation.Überarbeitet die Chars und macht nicht so Riesen karten das zieht immer an der FPS.Kleiner aber mehr Hochauflösende Texturen.Sonst kann sich das Spiel mit denn Taggigen Spielen nicht wirklich mit halten.Aber es liegt an euch halt.
