Rekoil Dev Team

"In one word, REKOIL is: Refreshing. By stripping away the over complications that the FPS genre has become, it refocuses back on the basics of what makes a great shooter and polishes those core mechanics to a point of sheer competitiveness.
- beep. boop."

Rekoil: The Story so far…
Rekoil is a multiplayer FPS in which the downtrodden “Minutemen” are pitted against their oppressors, Darkwater Inc, in a world devastated by an unrelenting pandemic. With full support for modding, customizable servers, and esports, Rekoil is a shooter the way you want it.

Core Gamers: The Backbone of Rekoil
Focusing on infantry-based combat across numerous locations, Rekoil provides balanced gameplay without killstreaks and other unfair advantages. From the fast moving Assault class, to the heavily armed and dangerous Heavy Gunner class, a player's skill is always at the forefront.

Gameplay configuration is a core focus in Rekoil, and dedicated servers can be set up to accommodate a large variety of play-styles. Whether you enjoy the free flowing acrobatics found in run-and-gun gaming, or more patient tactics, Rekoil can be tailored to suit your desires.

Mixing it up with full game modification support
Modifying game content is an activity that has fallen by the wayside for many developers and publishers. At Plastic Piranha, we recognize that although the number of modders may be quite small, their impacts on the community as a whole can be tremendous.

Modding not only builds an impassioned community that can create new ways to play a game, but it can provide great minds with an alternate path of entry to game development, which we feel is extremely important for the health of the industry as a whole. Many of today’s legendary developers cut their teeth with modding. Forsaking that heritage in pursuit of maximizing fiscal returns could leave the industry with fewer impassioned developers and visionaries.

Competitive Gaming & eSports
We are developing Rekoil with eSports in mind, and we listen to what top-tier teams and players have to say. Rekoil will be balanced for the very best that the eSports scene has to offer, ensuring that there is always room to improve for the average gamer and the pro player alike.

Rekoil will feature all of the functionality required to properly facilitate competitive events, including a spectator mode for all of your shout-casting and commentary needs. Replay functionality will be in place for event organizers to review matches and for video directors to create content, while LAN-support ensures fast connections for LAN events and those concerned with network latency.

What People are Saying
”As someone who liked relatively old FPS games like Perfect Dark and Halo 2, but unfortunately find modern FPS games a little too overburdened with garnish (and campers), I'm looking forward to Rekoil.”

"Big things coming from @RekoilTheGame. Was a sleeper hit at E3. Think solid FPS mechanics from CoD without the spammy killstreak ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥."
- Justin Wong, Twitch.TV

“I'm a PC shooter fan at heart. I played REKOIL and loved it.”
- Josh Olin, Community Manager Riot Games

"Check out this nice indie title called Rekoil. It's brilliant!"
- Daniel Matros, Community Manager Battlefield 3 ‏

"Rekoil was the unsung hero of E3. This wasn’t a booth frequented for free swag. The swag just happened to be there as swaths of people learned about the back to the future nature of the game. Back in time when first person shooters were pure, fast forward to the graphics of today."
- Dan Hevia, {LINK REMOVED}

“[Rekoil] packed a big punch and turned out to be one of my favorite games at E3. My PC gaming brethren, find your happy place and remember a time where PC shooters were reflex-based and highly moddable. Good times, right? Rekoil brought me back to those days, and I cannot stress enough how excited I am for this game.”

”The beauty of this IP is found in the independence of the studio. Through Rekoil, Plastic Piranha is forging a bond not only with a quality gaming, but also with a community that is crying out for that balanced, pure experience.”

"mostly negative" on steam reviews...
but when you go back to like 106, everyone says "OMG CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS GAME TO BE LIVE ON STEAM".
Well, you got to be careful about what you say... ;)
