Brought to you by the guys who worked on Tony Hawk (and dozens of other AAA titles)...

Special thanks to our players: Slek (Glock243), who made the new Training Arena video montage.

The year 2027 brought hope to a world on the brink of environmental and political collapse. On the last leg of its funding, NATO’s United Space Mission (USM) made a discovery on the moon that changed the course of human history. A large alloyed sphere, found nestled in a crater under the lunar dawn, is revealed to be an alien artifact containing a message for mankind. As an international team slowly deciphered the artifact, the content of this message began catalyzing a huge leap forward in our sciences. Humanity was abruptly catapulted into a new interstellar age. There are those who now believe we were not ready.

FreeFall Tournament - a space marines themed TPS (third person shooter)

Intense, fast-paced, team combat. Animation and camera control that make you feel like a space marine...super human. Have it all: jetpacks, armor, hammers, swords, guns, bombs, in melee, ranged, and aerial combat. Tanks smashing with hammers, deadly Scouts slashing their enemies down the middle with their katana, different jetpacks for every class create dynamic aerial combat, Gunners sniping from across the map, and Tech healing and dueling while laying down turrets. Even throw f-bombs! All class specific jetpacks allow you to hop and bound across the map gaining momentum and speed.

Your teams combined skill and coordination determine the winner of this tournament. Choose to fight as one of a growing cast of classes battling in 10-20 minute matches. It is a free-to-play browser game in open beta. Please try it out, it is not like other shooters.

We will be working towards a downloadable client as we expand the game.

Game Play

Two teams, Blue and Gold, compete to win matches. XP and Z Cash (the in-game currency) are given as rewards for players who complete matches. If your team wins you get more than if you lose. Players can start or quit a match at any time, but need to be present to the end in order to get rewards. Rewards are not given for individual kills.

The majority of perspective is from the 3rd person over the shoulder point of view. Cameras move in during melee combat or switch to scoped FPS view as the needed to add fluid realism to game play.

Free Range Development Philosophy

Like our name, we are developing FreeFall Tournament out in the open. We have a track record of listening to player input. Come visit us in the FreeFall Tournament forums, chat with our players, and find out for yourself. Of course, you are always welcome to say hi and talk to us directly. You can also play our game for free and discover the nuances that gamers really appreciate.

Design Principles

Just as Free Range Games has a philosophy for making games, we also have principles to guide the design of FreeFall Tournament. A few of these are:

  • Fun is more important than realism
  • Piloting futuristic battle suits should make the player feel super-human
  • Each class should have combat advantages and disadvantages, but not be a hard counter to another class
  • Every map should have features to showcase advantages of each class
  • One-Shotting should be very rare in normal 1v1 confrontation
  • Players with good tactical awareness should have opportunities to contribute to their team without requiring lightning reflexes
  • Conflicts should generally be won by the team that brings more troops to bear at the locus of contention. However, very skilled/lucky/tactical players should also have opportunities for 'heroic actions' that turn the tide
  • Players level up mainly through teamwork, not individual performance

Technical

Engine: Unity 3D

System requirements: minimal, 2 button mouse, ethernet connection
Initial download: ~10MB

I will try to get contacted with Y8 then, since I'd really LOVE to see this. But, I think the game would have to change - for example more detailed graphics, more maps, tutorial and some other tweaks, if it's supposed to atleast stand as a shooter on Steam. With that, Steam Wallet paying should be in the game, maybe some code reworks to adapt to non-web client app. But a good studio should be able to do that within a month or so, not sure what is their standing, since I don't play browser games. Also there is the ranking system that needs a tweak, and matchmaking to be done.

AND, Y8 would have to pay 100 dollar fee for Steam registration of a game (I don't know how it's with greenlight, but since the owner of the greenlight profile is not Y8-guy at-least-i-think, and policy restricts him from account trade, the prize must be payed).

Doesn't sound bright for this game being on Steam. It's a shame tho...

Freefall on steam? I used to play it quite often, when I was at Elementary school. I think that it wasn´t working for more than year, but its working now again. Im happy for this game being on steam, becouse it was one of the most popular online fps web games. I hope that, now on steam, it will catch more players.

Also just to let you know, this game is now normaly playable online again.

Not gonna happen then. I don't think they'll pay the 100$ fee. *gasp* what a pity.
