★ 2D PAINTBALL | A REAL-TIME COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER PAINTBALL SIM, IN 2D! ★

Play the Alpha now @ www .2DPaintball. com!



★ GAME CONCEPT / MORE INFO ★

2D Paintball is a free-to-play, online multiplayer, high-caliber, strategic, real-time speedball game that you play in your web browser.

2D Paintball has "sim" roots and is meant to be difficult (yet rewarding), is skill-based, and much more than meets the eye; read below for more info!



★ HOW-TO-PLAY / CONTROLS & STRATEGY / GAMEPLAY TIPS ★

Check out our detailed How-To-Play for the default controls, tips, tricks, and strategies to help you get a leg up on the others! www .2DPaintball. com/how-to-play.php



★ 2D PAINTBALL FEATURES ★

- "3D" Simulated Bunker Mechanics in a 2D environment (Dynamic ball arc over lower bunkers.)
-- Player centered audio (paintballs "woosh" by, bounce/splat around you, with near/far sounds.)
- High-speed, Real-time Multiplayer Gun Play! (60+ tickrate server netcode through your browser!)
- Paintball Field Creator & Field Editor (100+ Maps In Rotation with 100's more made by our users!)
-- Make an awesome map in our Full Field Creator and we'll add it to the active map selection pool!
- Daily PVP, Co-op & Team Tournaments (Signup for tourneys to Win Trophies and bragging rights!)
-- Watch out, Tournaments are even Harder! You'll have to earn those trophies!
- Earn XP to Unlock New Gear (Guns, Hoppers, & Paint.)
- Customize Your Player (Head, Mask, Jersey, Gun, Hopper, Pods, Pack, and more!)
- Play in 1v1 - 10v10 Events, co-op online or against online!
- Competitive Divisions Ranked between D5 - D1, Semi-Pro, Pro, & Masters.
- Casual/Practice Game Modes (Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, Pump Only, and more.)
- Semi-auto, Ramping, Electro, Mechanical, & Pump Paintball Guns + StatTrack markers!
- "Sightlines" (Extra Hard/Sim/Vision Restriction Mode) - Brings a whole new challenge to the game!
- Difficult A.I. Bots - Be careful, this game isn't meant to be easy!
-- Skilled play is highly rewarded. Play smart, play tight, and shoot fast!



★ GAME THEORY ★

The idea is to create a 2D simulated speedball experience, by trying to re-create the true feel, strategy, and gameplay of playing tournament speedball. We believe that getting all of the "small" details right is what can really make this game work even in a 2D environment.

So in turn, this game will be less about graphics and more about actually getting the "feels" of high-caliber paintball in 2D!



★ MORE INFO / HELP ★

If you are finding the game too difficult or are having technical issues, we highly suggest reading the always updated Gameplay Help & Gameplay Smoothness Tips @ www .2DPaintball. com/how-to-play.php. It's worth the read, and will help you better understand the inner workings of the game mechanics, controls, and ideal strategies.



★ GREENLIT STRETCH GOALS MAY INCLUDE... ★

- Significant bot / A.I. updates
- Single player/campaign mode
- New field modes (modeled after pro leagues / rules, modern, and classics / centerflag & buzzer)
-- Notable Field Rulesets - NXL, Millennium Series, NCPA, PSP, NPPL, etc.
- Steam integration/achievements & standalone game client
- Local/LAN server & private/public server hosting
- In-game voice chat / audio updates
- Content update (bunkers, fields, markers, barrels, player/team customization, etc.)
- Modern/graphics update (animations, lighting, field wear, post-processing, effects, etc.)
- Community & team (clan) management features
... and much more has been discussed!

I play D4ish paintball, and it's a great game. I wanna see it on steam!

Eatmywords, the full multiplayer game is already live and free-to-play!

I suggest reading the How-To to understand the Sim model and strategy, this game is really more than meets the eye.

Also, as you start meeting the higher level players (who may seem outright dominating) watch/learn from the strategies they use and spectate the awesome fun that comes along from the higher level of play.

I'm not saying it's good, but neither am I saying this is anywhere near terrible. However I do like what you're trying to do, and with multiplayer then this could definitely be a surprise package. It reminds me of a mix of Sensible Soccer and Cannon Fodder.

There's some great features, and I especially like the line-of-sight. Also, I do hope you're limiting the ammo players have at the start of a game, as it will just encourage spam-shooting. You've certainly put thought and time into this and with more time and patience I definitely think you might have a fun game in the making.
