Arm yourself and see if you can survive to the end. Membrane comes with a launcher to easily connect to Multiplayer games over TCP/IP. Play with your friends in cooperative mode! Membrane is a retro style game that is a throwback to classic First Person Shooters of the 90's! Featuring fast gameplay, expansive labyrinthine levels, with fun sci-fi weapons and powers.

Membrane Demo

Pretty cool stuff! I thought the jagged animations of the alien grunts was a bit weird at the beginning, but it actually really fits in the mood.

Dat death scream, tho' >_>

One bug'ish issue, though, if you're in a position where you'd expect to be able to shoot at something in front of you, some collision box gets in the way and this happens: Media.moddb.com

( Also, I couldn't get inside the ventilation duct on the upper floor, but I might have not tried hard enough ;] )

My overall rating thus far is definitely a 9/10

All right, Glad you like it! Thanks for the feedback. If you haven't gone through that duct yet, you are only half way done though. Cool stuff is past that =)

Funny thing about the animations... The engine interpolates the weapon models very nicely with only a few key frames. The other actors not so much, unfortunately I used the same logic when making them. By the time I got to the player model I was exporting nice smooth animations. Basically I have to go back and add frames to the enemy models.

The collision thing I will look into. It's coming from the projectile being fired from the center of the screen, I may be able to move it to the right to match the weapon model.

Anyway, it seems the installer and the launcher worked fine for you, so that's a plus!

I enjoyed playing through this. Super-fast-paced fun that felt appropriately 90s, plus lots of neat ideas and puzzles.

Like FastGamerr I had trouble in that room with the first ventilation duct, more because I forgot you could crouch to get through the windows!

The only other place I was stuck for a while is getting out of the later room where you get a new power. The answer seemed a little odd, but fair enough I guess.

Dude that was an awesome play-through video! I am totally linking to this everywhere. I might have to make that vent easier to get into >.> Here is a tip for the secrets: Try to get on top of the tanks with people in them.
