Thank you for checking new update for fast action FPS SKAR: The Unknown!

SKAR is FPS in development made for fast action, lots of blood and hordes of enemies to wipe out. Current version has weapon system, head system and controller ready. Next update will bring first creature - Minion.

This update delivers:

1. Finished Shield Generation Device
2. Head animation and blood
3. Head implants
4. Ability to run

Shield Generation Device

Space Marine #514 in video you see uses shield generation device made by Earth Defence. This shield adds strong layer of energy around the person who wears it. It's a lightweight device inspired by Space Battlecruiser's shields that are powered by plasma energy. Current device uses its own power that can self regenerate, but is limited of its power. It can withstand limited amount of damage. When you take too much damage it just turns off to regenerate again. Space Marines wear it as regular equipment.

How it works?

Shield is stable when its fully charged. You can see that all hexagons are in place.


When you start taking damage, it will first use Shield to protect your Health and Armor.

Let's check following image to fully understand.

Watch enclosed video to see it in action!

So now what? You took damage and Shield is lowered.

When you step back for a few seconds or just defeat you enemies without actually taking hit into your Health or Armor it will start to regenerate. Red shield hexagon indicator will start building up again until it's fully charged.

Animated head: Better textures, more blood and a BEARD!

We are constantly working on the animated head since we see it as an important aspect. We took inspiration from older FPS games where we loved it.

It will react on many events, but more importantly it works as a fast indicator how healthy you are. There is few "blood phases" during which you can see how close you are to death.

Head implants

You can notice that the Space Marine has a implant in his head. To withstand harsh conditions of the space all Marines need to wear some kind of implant that improves their overall Health. You will be able to change the implant to utilize different bonuses depending on your needs. You will be able to find implants hidden in Labs.

Faster movement speed

Just press SHIFT and you can run faster by 100%. Why to be slow, right? Good for advanced players, longer jumps and faster movement around the location.
