Squad | Early Access Dec 15, 2015


Squad m2a1 emplacement Update


Squad is an in development tactical multiplayer shooter with a heavy focus on teamwork, communication and realism. The game will allow players to fully experience the rigors of modern day combat, from the tactics and tension of maneuvering, all the way to the action and intensity of a firefight.

In order to promote that sense of team-play and realism, the game will employ a number of features which range from shaping gameplay mechanics and supporting extensive voice communication, to employing accurate equipment and building over a large scale.

All things considered, Squad seeks to establish a culture of camaraderie throughout it that is unparalleled in competitive multiplayer shooters.


1st Place

Space Engineers | Early Access Oct 22, 2013


Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets. Players build space ships, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses (civil and military), pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. Featuring both creative and survival modes, there is no limit to what can be built, utilized and explored.

Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine: everything in the game can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game can be played either in single or multiplayer modes.

Space Engineers concentrates on construction and exploration aspects, but can be played as a survival shooter as well. We expect players will avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications to survive in space and on planets. Space Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.

Congratulations to all, We wish you a happy new year and all your developments the best in 2016!
