We're rebuilding the game in Unreal 4, but there will be a completely free demo soon!
We've been Greenlit!
Description
Release date: Fall 2015
Boxman Begins is a third person online action game that centers around being something new and different.

We want to take games you are familiar with and give you a new way to play. Gone are the usual team death match and capture the flag modes. Instead play modes like “Reverse Health”, where the objective is to die, and shooting enemies gives them your health. It's these fun game modes that have been seen to create a hugely enjoyable game that is best enjoyed with friends.

Some other game modes we have already added:

"Pass the Bullet" in which everyone has a sniper rifle and a single bullet is passed around, each player having only 10 seconds to use the bullet once they get it.

"Miss-take", in which missing a shot inflicts some damage to the shooter. This creates interesting dynamics of player standoffs, in which both players are hesitant to fire their weapon.

We have a huge array of idea's for game modes that we wont talk about just yet since we haven't got the rules nailed down yet. Many idea's have actually been submitted by players while we were testing the game. We'd actually really like it if you gave us idea's for game modes in the comments, you could even get in the credits!

The future of Boxman Begins

We have created systems that allow us to add game modes with relative ease, with the plan being to support the game after release with extra maps and game modes. We also plan on implementing Steam Workshop support so people can experiment and add custom game modes and maps.
We are probably going to do early access as soon as the core of the game is really finished. We want to get the game into your hands, since a multiplayer game hinges on the players that enjoy it, we want you to be a part of the development of the game, to shape it's future and decide on new game modes that get added.

In fact you might enjoy seeing our roadmap for the future development of the game right? Well here you go:

• Levelling & progression system

• New game modes

• More levels

• Capes

• Improved sound design

• In game music

• Improved server browsing and unique lobby system

• More character classes

• Modding support

• Stat tracking

Goodbye Free 2 Play!

We'd also like to mention that we've designed the game to be devoid of Free 2 Play features. You pay for the game up front and you get it all. We felt that we've created a far more balanced game as a result that can be enjoyed by all equally.

Who are the developers?

The developers are two 18 year old guys who met on Youtube with a common goal to do something different with a game. We hope we've achieved that with Boxman Begins.

Thank you for your vote, and do make sure to give us a follow on Twitter and a like on Facebook to get news and media from the game as soon as it's available.
