"What drives you, stranger?"

Acythian is a cyberpunk/noir themed first person shooter game.

Plot summary:
A retired special forces agent infiltrates the headquarters of
a religious cult to rescue his prodigal foster daughter.
Hereby being unwillingly dragged into a widespread conspiracy.

As a linear, narrative driven game, Acythian builds on lore and
atmosphere to draw haunting science fiction environments and
believable, fleshed out characters that inhabit this world.
The game is set in a distant future where humanity has been
starkly decimated by drawn out wars and nature is regaining
a lot of territory.

The core plot line is relatively simple and the game has a strong
focus on a fully realized world surrounding it. While you'll be
infiltrating the citadel, the headquarters of an influential
religious cult, you will also get a good impression of the lore
and world surrounding this place.

Acythian is a first person shooter at its core while also
implementing adventure game mechanics. There'll be looting
but we try to stay true to its FPS roots and do our best to
avoid cluttered inventories and micromanaging resources.
There will still be plenty of items and gameplay elements
to use and combine in realtime.

For example: You can boost your character using various implants
which will however also add to your neurotoxicty level. This can be fatal
if it reaches a high amount and impair your skills if not deadly.

Weapons in this game will be balanced according to their real world
counterparts and should feel as authentic as I can manage them to be.

The game will not feature any unnecessary gimmick, will not be a clone of
or be "heavily inspired"of an existing game,
will not have a constant barrage of achievments
or hints nor will the pacing be dictated by a string of setpieces.
We will also not feature a tacked on multiplayer service.

With this said I invite you to follow the development process of a
futuristic, gothic adventure set in a hauntingly beautiful world
drenched in rust,tares and blood.

It's there in your eyes
Like diamonds ablaze
Sleepless we walk
Through the valley of dreams
We live life long enough
Like silent machines


I've made some progress here and there and also started working on a new map. This will be an optional side mission but I promise that if you enjoy the game otherwise, you will not want to miss it

Here is the 10 mm SMG from the game. Its design is a Kriss Vector. Granada made the model, Errant AI the Hand Rig, Bugsy animated it and I textured it. A true community effort if you will.

Now I decided to add the optional side mission. I was inspired by games like the Thief series and Vampire: The Masquerade. These games all have one spooky horror themed adventure part and I want one in this game. So here it is: I will not reveal how its going to be spooky because I also want it out as a demo for halloween.

I had some problems at first with the engine refusing to render the models in "highest" but that somehow solved itself. Its nice when random evens in game guru actually go my way for a change.

I think its easy to see that the area is abandoned for decades. I designed these textures for the modelpack2 drink machines to go with that look.

While most of the gameplay takes place in those buildings I decided to have a convincing nature scape around it. There will also be a constant feverish buzzing of crickets here

Thank you for checking this out and feel free to let me know what you think. I am always happy to see feedback to my work

Zero-effort asset flippers tainted GameGuru, but your game really looks like it could break the mold. That's some impressive stuff you got here, I'm following.

Thank you!
I know a good 12 people, some more skilled than I am, that try to make decent games in GG, however that takes time and an asset flip is basically ready in a weekend.
I'm probably not going to change the bad rep of game guru but I hope that people will play and enjoy my game regardless of engine.
