Gentrieve 2 is a "Metroid"-style 3D action game featuring completely random & customizable worlds.

The year is 3080. Mass Generators are creating everything, everywhere. However, thieves often steal Mass Generators in hopes of creating robot armies & fortresses. Thieves are terrible programmers, though, and their creations become uncontrollably hostile & fortresses wildly convoluted.It is your job to clear out these fortresses & return the faulty Mass Generators. Be warned, when the Mass Generator is taken offline, the fortress will soon implode!

Please visit the homepage @ Gentrieve.wordpress.com for more information, demos & the full version!

i am not a smart man.
after discovering that some of the repair-stations are in fact upgrade-stations, the seemingly diabolical level of difficulty turned out to be balanced just right.
and now i'm in love <3

There are repair stations, with 3 wrenches, that you can keep re-visiting. Then, there are single wrench upgrade areas to get more maximum health :)

i can't launch the game through desura, as the exe location is set to % LAUNCHER_EXE% (on linux, that is).
launching by manually executing the script works as intended, so maybe you could review the desura-package.

that being said, i really like the game, the idea of playing through countless different iterations of metroid prime pleases me =) although i have yet to generate a world where i don't get stuck after one boss, the difficulty is quite insane ;) but alas, off to a new world, off to a new try!

Are you guys using the open-source client Desurium? The Desura linux client isn't supported anymore, if I recall correctly...

either switching to desurium or your proper response fixed the issue, great, thank you!
another question: is there a reason for putting the environments etc. in a visible folder?
personally, i'd be more happy for them to be in .gentrieve2 or even .phr00t/gentrieve2

Any chance of autosaves after getting items, maybe as a seperate file? It's really annoying to have to trudge all the way back to a save point just to ensure that the last 15 minutes of play aren't a waste.

I love that this looks like a Nintendo 64 game.

It feels like I am James Bond deserted in the future.

Gentrieve 2 is a fascinating experiment in procedural generation. Gameplay is 3D Metroid-style -- a room-based FPS platformer -- but genre is less important here than the ideas the game presents and the mood it effectively sets. In the style of roguelikes and dungeon crawlers, each play-through provides a unique experience through random generation, right down to the texture of the walls. The aesthetic is refined (dark, retro-futuristic) and I'm constantly propelled by my curiosity and eagerness…
