Malfunction is a universe full of mystery and the unknown. Though one thing that lurks around this universe is what most fear; the Plague. The Plague is a fierce virus that consumes anything in it's path until it is stopped. The Malfunction series is built around this dilemma.

Here is the series of Malfunction;


Malfunction:

Malfunction Cover

Malfunction is a story driven puzzle game mainly about a snow planet named "Khaugin", that is being taken over by a dangerous weapon known as the 'Plague'. You play as a repair-bot known as 'Dwenguil' who was sent to Khaugin to destroy this threat. Not only can the Plague destory worlds, but they could spread and consume the entire universe.

The game is mainly about puzzles and action. The game has multiple gamemodes as well as a 25 level story.


Malfunction: Outbreak:MFO Title


Malfunction: Outbreak takes place before the events of Malfunction. You will play in the boots of Mark (one of the characters prior to the first Malfunction) as he explores many planets while blasting his way through hordes of many enemies with a huge arsenal of unique weapons.

The game is an FPS that mostly consists of fighting your way through enemies while exploring many interesting environments. Malfunction: Outbreak's goal is to bring back the old nostalgia from what the classical FPS games brought that redefined gaming.

Update: 6/16/17

Hello again! I've finally made it a bit earlier this time! Anyways, I have MANY things to show you all, so let's get to it.

First:

I have released another update for Malfunction: Outbreak (6.0), and one thing I'd like to point out is the game has now reached it's beta stage! Anyways, let's discuss the update.

I have added music to all levels of the latest chapter, but one thing that has DRASTICALLY improved the game (not only visually but performance as well) is adding fog to all levels of the game! You are able to disable it in the settings if it's something you'd rather not have, but let's see some examples!

NSC 3 1


NSC 4


NSC 2


NSC 5


Anyways, be sure to try it out, and have fun!

Malfunction: Outbreak (Beta 6.0)


Second:

Malfunction has also received it's next update (1.3.0), and this one GREATLY improves all of the Menus/HUD. I believe it is safe to say that at least EVERY menu was changed in some way or another. Here are some BIG examples;

preview1


(The HUD has been re-designed to look and act more smoothly)

preview2


preview3


(ALL hints/message boxes have been re-designed)


preview5


(The objectives have been MOVED to the pause menu)


This update was built to redefine the menus of Malfunction so that you have the best experience possible when playing the game. If you'd like to try it out, here;

Perhaps you wanted to give some feedback? Or did you just come here to insult the game?

Either way, thanks for checking it out.

Apologies, not exactly being negative here, just the art style, some of weapon designs and the fact it's, I assume either based on Id Tech 1 engine, or is imitating it pretty well, well, it does remind me of Chex Quest.

Ah, I see!

The game certainly isn't being used with Id Tech 1, though the main purpose of the game is to give that classic feeling of what engines like Id Tech 1 would offer.

Though in the gameplay video I'm assuming you watched, I could see how it does remind of you Chex Quest, but there's certainly a lot more to the game than that video. In fact most of the time you're fighting robots (with other creatures occasionally).

Either way, thanks for your thoughts on the game!

I can see why people disliked the art style... It's still on the edge between an actual style and goofy, bad hand-drawing.
I think this should be better defined. The animations and the GUI should also mimic this style. ...make the colors less less like a chalk drawing. etc

I appreciate the feedback but if you did not know, I am the only person working on this game. It has been a really hard journey getting to where the game is now, and the graphics/art has certainly not been the main focus of the game.

It's the story, the gameplay, the amount of fun people can have with it. And nobody else has disliked the art style.

You said many people were hating on the game. That's what I was referring to.

Oh! Well most of the hate that I got was because the game looked like a typical RPG Maker game..

and with the latest updates, I've really been trying to change that. Because the game isn't even using RPG Maker, it was built with GG Maker. Which both engines have huge differences.

But anyways I do really appreciate your feedback! I'll keep it in mind.

Well not as huge as the difference between RPG Maker and Unity or Unity and UDK/Cryengine...
This is kind of about looks, everything that can be done in GG Maker is going to look mostly the same as an RPG Maker game, even though, the road there was different. 2D pixel graphics top down view...
GG Maker has less coding right?

That and you can make 3D games. I've made a couple FPS's with GG Maker. I know thats not possible with RPG Maker.

Yeah, but Unity is far better for that anyway.
