Nanotris is DONE

Description
Release date: Fourth quarter 2015


Nanotris is a local multiplayer arena-shooter for 2 to 4 players.

Compete against your friends in this fast paced arena-battle.
Build your ship, collect super-charged weapons and blast your enemies to ashes.

NOTE: The game requires at least one controller.





Each player has core. The aim of the game is to destroy the other players' cores and protect your own.



Nanotris' gameflow works in two phases - Building & Destruction. In the building phase each player has a limited time to collect as many cubes as they can. The cubes act as a makeshift armor to protect the ship's core. Cubes snap on to the the core and other cubes like magnets. Players can not shoot each other during this phase. After the building phase is over, the Destruction phase will begin.

Additional cubes can be acquired during the Destruction phase by either detaching them from other players, or by killing Critter Queens.




Nanotris features many different arenas. Each arena has been designed to fulfill a different kind of game experience. Some are more tactical, some hectic, chaotic, small, large, you name it.





During the Destruction phase each player has basic blaster available at all times. Special weapon power-ups spawn periodically on the arena. Whoever collects them first, gets to fire powerful weapons against their enemies. Basic flow of the game during this phase usually goes as follows:
-> Players race towards the power-ups
-> someone gets it
-> everyone else flees for their lives.

The winner of Destruction phase is the last man standing.



Destroying other players is not the only thing you can do. The arenas are riddled with pesky little Critters. If the players take the time to shoot these buggers, they get a power orb in return. Collect 10 of these, and all your weapons become more powerful, and you even get access to better weapons that others won't.



...However, the critter are protected by their mommies. Critter Queens have been the demise of many unwary Nanotris champions.Though, with careful aim and dodging skills these maggots can be brought down. Critter Queen spawn a few additional cubes on the level upon their death. PRO-Tip: If you're running low on cubes, avoid danger and try to re-stock from these.

@Kiraisjustice Thank you for your support. The reason you can't find the vote button, is because the game is already through Greenlight. We're working on a release very soon. As for gameplay time, this is a multiplayer arena game. It's meant to be played with friends from time to time, like let's say Street Fighter. The game has us much gameplay as you care to play it. There's no "beginning" or an end.

Looks intresting. I always vote for developers, wich seem to put some effort in theire Games instead of just making it more funny so PewdiePie plays it. So If I were able to vote (I don't know why, but i can't find the vote Button, It's not displayd) I'd give you an up vote. Just make shure, that you don't throw an gimmick on the market, wich contains two or three houres of gameplay ant thats it. Fresh Ideas are awesome and really needet, but you can't realese a feature, you gotta realese a Game. Take for example the Portal Games. Yes the were to short, but it was a full and inovativ game. Imagine Portal with no effort in the charecters, the setting, the atmosphere or the story, just with generic puzzle levels and the portal gun and a "Conglaturations" at the end. It would not be a good game. So take your time and realese a full pac of fun! I belive in you! Hope that my english didn't killed you while you were reading this, Sincerley Jan

Reminiscent of Geometry wars, but with less abstract, more polished looking artwork!
