Adelaide, Australia (ACDT) - Developer Games Of Edan today announced the release of “ICEBOX: Speedgunner”, coming to Steam on October 18th 2017 (PDT). The Steam store page is now available for wish-listing with a shiny new trailer and live on-stage demonstration. To celebrate it's launch, the game will be 10% off during it's opening week starting Oct 18th.

ICEBOX:Speedgunner sees the player carving an ice-cool path through a brand new 3D Platforming FPS, cutting corners, dodging obstacles & eliminating guards, in a battle to escape the ICEBOX, before it's permanently shut down. The player will race the clock, hunt the Central AI and leverage run-and-gun gameplay to navigate a digital labyrinth, top the global leaderboards and become the Ultimate Speedgunner. Inspired by the "Brain in a Vat" thought-experiment, games including "Deadcore", "Mirror's Edge", and movies like "The Matrix", "Tron" and "The Running Man", the game explores the concept of escaping your own virtual prison.

Sam is the architect of the ICEBOX, a covert technology designed to control the human mind. But he always feared his invention may fall into the wrong hands. So he planted secret backdoors as insurance against any personal incarceration. On the eve of final testing, the technology was stolen and Sam's son was kidnapped. The child's brain was wired into the ICEBOX in a failed attempt to decrypt the system. The child was soon forgotten, resigned to a protracted hibernation.

After years of inactivity, the ICEBOX was suddenly restarted...

The player is cast as Sam's son, initially trapped inside the ICEBOX. But with the help of an outside hacker, they'll embark on a quest to destroy the Central AI and escape the ICEBOX before time runs out.

Ok now it made more sence, mutch easer to play now. I got to the end. Found soem bugs. Some times the keys in the text did not show up. Well if u like watch the full 40min you see. Liked the rifle and teh slowmotion effect. Good work a bit of a Tron/Matrix thing going on I understand. :)

I'm looking at your playthru & I'll be sure to address the bugs etc that you encountered. For example, you did the exact right thing to activate the elevator, but for some reason the elevator didnt't work. I think I'll change that to use a Terminal instead (just like the doors). And I did notice the text missing from some descriptions, so I'll try to see what's up with that.
Thanks again for giving the game a go.

Thanks for trying this early alpha - it very much appreciated. Also, great news that you made it to the end - hopefully the tutorial helped in that regard. I'll check out your YT video too. I've also got shotgun, sniper, Techgun and a few other things to introduce in future levels so stay tuned.
Thanks again, have a great weekend!

Thanks.
There's a tutorial now added in v0.3.1, so that could make things a lot easier to get going at the start ;)

Thanks for checking out the game. Bad luck about your GPU :(

Aiming for this to make it all the way to steam in the future.
Working hard to make sure it's of the highest quality before asking customers for hard-cash, but I expect it to be in the typical Indie Price Range of around $15... Next step is expected to be a closed beta so if you're interested in playing the game & becoming a recognised QA beta tester then stay tuned here or on gamesofedan.com for the latest updates.

And thanks again ;)

Great job! I just finished the game and I relly liked it! It is original, the soundtrack is nice and the story is very singular. Congratulations. I noticed that there are two endings.. I will play again this game when the next updates will be released. And.. fix the stairs and the GPS :)

Congratulations! And thanks for playing the alpha.

As you probably noticed, the game 'skips'a few chapters & fast-forwards to the end chapter(s). As development continues it will see more 'procedural levels' where you must recover Angkor Orbs & more 'missions with npcs' in the Kinship Province.

Most of the ESS sensors/monitors are not really being used yet, but future versions will use specialised challenges to test the player's mastery of the ESS and it's sensors.

I'll be sure to work on all the broken bits & a sincere thank-you for playing and for all your feedback.
