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!

Hello fellow swimmers & good news, Spermination has been updated! Of course, you always want to be shooting with the freshest, so grab the latest either from IndieGameStand or BMT Micro!

v1.4 brings fixes to joystick controls (should hopefully fix looking around on all types of controllers). Oculus Rift updates have also been made -- GUI elements shouldn't overlap incorrectly, among other fixes.

There was a rather large balancing tweak made for v1.0, so if you are running an older version, you really want to update as prices were changed & damage tweaks were made.

Are you a Let's Player who wants to play Spermination? Let me know! Send me an e-mail to phr00t at the usual gmail dot com, and I can hook you up. Here is a video of another fellow gamer enjoying himself:



As always, please vote on Greenlight for this title! Want to play? You can buy it on IndieGameStand!

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.

I like this. It reminds me a lot of metriod. I only played the demo but this would be a fantastic game if there are plenty of new weapons and tools to find AND if you can save the game. I'm not interested in yet another game where you lose all your progress without anything to fall back on if you die.

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…
