Daedalus is a multi-player top down arena shooter. It is inspired by games such as Quake 3 and Unreal tournament in terms of game modes and gameplay, and also by the old Alien Breed games for the top down 2D view.

The control scheme is the same as for a first person shooter, so it is very easy for someone used to play any FPS to gain skill in Daedalus. Another alternate control scheme is also available in the options: it is quite the same as Alien Swarm's one, with a fixed camera ( no rotation ), and a mouse cursor to aim and shoot.

Daedalus is mostly a multi-player game, but will also propose single player action versus bots. Different game modes will be available:

  • Single-player
    • Score game: try to make the highest score versus bots and compare your score with other players
    • Skirmish: pick your map, game mode, bots ... and fight!
  • Multi-player
    • Death-match
    • Team death-match
    • Capture the flag

The game will also come with a map editor so that anyone will be able to create and share his own maps. I hope to be able to release it beginning of 2014. :)


If you want to get Daedalus on Steam, please support it on Greenlight!

None of the Environment Textures are showing, apart from Objects on the map, the walls and floors are just black in the Alpha. Tried in lowest settings as well as default + Windowed

The Menu's look nice thou' ^^
