Icebox is Greenlit! Thank you!
Description
The Icebox is a Speedrunning 3d Platformer with an FPS twist.




The Icebox is a Speedrunning 3D Platformer with an FPS twist. Use Glitch and Jet boosts to master it’s virtual labyrinth, weaponry to vanquish it’s sentinels and your relentless determination to destroy it’s Central AI.

CAMPAIGN MODE
In this mode, players race the clock, manage resources and destroy sentinels on their way through ever more challenging environments, culminating in the final battle against the Central AI. Levels are around 3-5min in length. Completing each level inside the Par Time unlocks the next and posts a score to the Leaderboards. Players can replay levels to perfect runs and improve their overall score.

MARATHON MODE
In this mode, players take a more considered approach through one marathon level, on a solitary journey to search and destroy the Central AI.

BONUS MODES
Unlock bonus levels after completing the main campaign, introducing new gameplay elements for added variety - Terminal Hacking, Helix Nodes, Super Speedrunning and the Network Gun.



  • Glitch Mode - Slow time, bypass gravity, engage shield & boost telekinesis
  • Jet Boost - Navigate the environment using multi-jumps
  • Randomised Worlds - Procedural generation for world creation
  • AI Squads - Old school FPS with a few twists
  • Secret Panels - Search for hidden panels and loot
  • Leaderboards - Perfect your run to earn top spot
  • Dynamic Music - Reacts to your progress



Sam is the Systems Architect to The Icebox, a digital device designed to subvert the conscious mind. But he always feared the technology may fall into the wrong hands. So he planted covert programs as insurance against any personal incarceration.

On the eve of final testing, the Blacksuits ambushed Sam’s office, stole his invention and kidnapped his only son. They wired the child’s brain to the Icebox in an attempt to decrypt the system. But their attempts failed and the child was soon forgotten, resigned to a protracted hibernation.

After years of inactivity, the Icebox was restarted…

You play as Sam’s son. Your DNA has triggered an automatic failsafe. You must now search and destroy the Central AI to escape the Icebox.




AVCON 2016
The game was recently part of the Indie Games Room at AVCON 2016[www.theindiegamesroom.com]. Players had lots of fun and shared some great feedback. You can check out my personal "Wrap-up" post here[gamesofedan.com]. Thanks to all the attendees and fellow developers for making AVCON 2016 such a wonderful event.




NOTES
Levels are procedurally assembled using a database of hand-made sectors, and then populated with pickups and NPCS to generate unique levels of arbitrary length. Each level uses a seed value so levels can be replayed, and in the future things like Daily/Weekly Challenges are possibilities.

Integration of the Steam SDK, and specifically the Steam Leaderboards, will allow players to compete globally with online friends. At present Leaderboards are managed locally.

PLATFORMS
Windows and Mac OSX are the initial target platforms, Linux should also be possible (pending testing).

LOCALISATION / LANGUAGES
The game's interface has been designed to support language localisation; currently using the 'English' database. Player response will help prioritise future language support.

MAKING CUSTOM LEVELS
Level definition files are text-based documents read by the Level Generator. Initial plans are to later publish a document about the Level Generator.
