Receiver is live on Steam!
Receiver is greenlit!
Description
Release date: Available Now!
Receiver was created for the 7-day FPS challenge to explore gun handling mechanics, randomized levels, and unordered storytelling. Armed only with a Colt 1911 A1 and an audiocassette player, you must uncover the secrets of the Mindkill in a building complex infested with automated turrets and hovering shock drones.

We would like to get to put Receiver on Steam so that users can add it to their Steam library for convenience, and receive automatic updates. We are continuing to work on the game, and this will make it a lot easier for users to get new builds as soon as we release them.

Receiver is available now at wolfire.com/receiver, or you can get it for free with an Overgrowth preorder at wolfire.com/preorder.

Update: We just added a S&W Model 10 Revolver and a Glock 17 with auto mod, as well as a Mini Maglite flashlight. You can see the video for that update above, second from the left.

Press Quotes:
  • RockPaperShotgun: Receiver didn’t cast me as some nigh-invincible mass of regenerating muscle. The end result, then, was that I felt exactly how I’d expect Real Me would in a combat situation involving live ammo.

  • Kotaku: Receiver is interesting for two things. One, it focuses on a single weapon, the Colt 1911 A1, and takes it very seriously, using "high detail gun mechanics", which means you can "manipulate each part of the gun independently" (the beginning of the video shows this in action).

    The second is that it's a randomly-generated shooter that features permanent death. Taking place inside a single building, every time you die, you have to start at the very beginning again, but the entire game world is re-rolled.

    It's available now for $5, which given the ideas on show, is totally worth it just to check it out.

RE:This game is awesome but it would be even better if the story went somewhere like maybe you could escape the building and stop the evil news service currently it is like slender you run around finding pages/tapes
