Wolfire Releases Receiver
Wolfire Games, developer of the incredible looking indie-rabbit-fighter Overgrowth have participated in the recent 7 Day First Person Shooter event and have produced Receiver as their takeaway product.
Essentially a mildly roguelike (permadeath and randomness) FPS, the neat feature is that the gun is ridiculously modeled to detail, the player in control of things like the safety, pulling the slide back, pulling the hammer back, and removing or replacing individual bullets in a clip.
The game is available from Wolfire themselves for the low low price of $4.99, or it’s completely free if you’ve already pre-ordered Overgrowth. I’ve spent a collective hour or two with it over the past week and will attempt to make a more in-depth post about how it plays later this week. Special sneak preview: I enjoy it. For the price of a smart phone app you can’t really go wrong here.
