by quill18 - 48 Hour Compo Entry

Just one gun, no ammo, and no complex terrain. "Shoot (AAA_FPS_GOTY)" only contains the elements that are absolutely required for a fun PEW PEW PEW experience:

- Multiplayer, with automatic server assignment and room joining. (Up to 16 players!)
- Bots to fill empty slots.
- Health/Armor pickups for strategic movement and map control.
- A metric ton of death sounds.

Shoot can be played offline vs bots, but for the best experience you should play online...with friends to frag!


The creation of "Shoot." was livestreamed from start to finish in front of ~8,000 unique viewers. Ludum Dare just wouldn't be the same without you guys!

Brilliant game. Once again one of the best entries in the compo.

Love the sounds. Sometimes I wish that there was a voting metric for technical accomplishment because this is quite impressive. Network code and Bot AI in a Ludum Dare Entry. It was fun to duck out of mayhem of coding my own entry to watch quill18's livestream every once in a while.

The voices are what turned this game around for me! I watched the stream on and off and wasn't that into it, but the final product is pretty good!

Quill, SkyWolf (or @akaSkyWolf) here. I couldn't be there 'till the end of the stream, but congrats on the great accomplishment. :)

Another amazing game by you! Love all the death sounds, they really gave me a good laugh! Especially the Kittenzilla reference :D

bummzack says ...

Impressive game. I like the top-down view before you respawn. The sound-effects are awesome too.

Awesome little game! Sick that you could pull that of in 48 hours!

Brassawiking says ...

The quick version of 7DaysFPS =)

This is brilliant! I love the voices :D Really well made game!!!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 7:31pm

An amazing game. I'm in awe that you got that done in 48 hours. The voices are hilarious, and it feels great to play. Well done * 20.

BradleySmith says ...

Really really fun!

Jellycakes says ...

Really fun playing in multiplayer and the characters make you laugh. Definitely worth playing!

Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:21pm

I can't believe he made a networked multiplayer game in just 48 hours. Amazing and awesome. The voices and sounds make it.

One nitpick: you can get stuck quite easily on the center structure.

free_napalm says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 9:46pm

Definitely impressive work.

TheMightyComp says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 10:40pm

I gave this one a near-perfect score, and with good reason. It's super ambitious, executed perfectly, in tune with the theme, and (most importantly) incredibly fun. Easily the best LD game that I have reviewed so far!

TobiasL says ...
Apr 29, 2013 @ 11:20pm

The bots are really talkative :)

Michael Hall says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 12:50am

This is game is really fun to play, I like the simplicity of it. Voiceovers are pretty hilarious as well.

ddionisio says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 4:33am

Definitely gives the feel of a shooter game with the random banters! Very humorous, I had a good laugh! All it needs now is the quake-style-banter in the chat log, e.g. "player 1 just ate player 2's explosive banana bomb", etc. then this game would be AAAA_FPS_GOTY

ilo says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:46am

This is a crazy accomplishment for 48 hours.

CoffeeOnimal says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 7:03am

Impressive. The death cries were a nice touch.

AirRider3 says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 7:44am

For always saying that you "don't art", you sure have a good sense of what ends up looking good. And your sound effects are awesome!

Hejsamanful says ...

Best game so far i have seen!

This is fantastic--very impressive for just 48 hours.

Nice, I wish I knew anything about making a multiplayer game.

Pretty clear you didn't sleep. Great game!

Very awesome game, thanks for making it.

Khaldrin says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 6:14pm

Really, really awsome! The gameplay is fast-paced, the character models are fun and the death sounds are just hilarious! Incredible that you pulled that off in 48 hours. I´m impressed. Great work!

Quill, you mad man! I watch quite a bit of your twitch, the game came out amazing! I PWNED many many times. FUN

Pros: Insane! Great work using free tools to create something like this in the amount of time we had. Just awesome =)
Cons: Hard to control, was bouncing all around the place and had no idea why.

klianc09 says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 7:03pm

Well, not the most innovative game. I didn't have too much fun with it... Maybe it's because I don't like FPS that much?
Sure it's polished and everything and impressive that they accomplished this within a weekend, but somehow it's not really interesting. (Except for the death sounds, which are really great, they are basically the only reason to keep playing.)

Dir3kt says ...
Apr 30, 2013 @ 7:20pm

Nice. Technically impressive. When I played we were 4 players.

I like the idea of 'minimalist AAA game' :)

juaxix says ...

Lego men killing each other...could we build something together? :)

Apr 30, 2013 @ 9:37pm

Great to see a multiplayer game on LD. i wish there would be more players online. but the bots are fun too. thanks for the nice game

HybridMind says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 2:06am

Had a good bit of fun with this. There were a few folks playing on and off when I was. Glad there were bots too. Great work creating this in a weekend!

Pretty awesome game, very impressed with how well it all works together. Good job =3

Mase says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 5:05am

Nice banter. Tragically nobody was online when I played but it was still pretty fun.

Uhfgood says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 6:21am

I didn't see the live stream. It was interesting, but I was never any good at multiplayer games.

Thijsku says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 9:41am

Too bad there was no one online in the multiplayer, so I had to fight against bots. But it was fun anyway! I loved the references to annoyed gamers. :p

Good job!

Ismei says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 9:44am

I can't believe you made this in 48 hours. I loved the voices.

gre says ...

Good job! nice voice and lego style :)


entrusC says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 12:37pm

Nice Quake clone - but sadly gets boring very quick. Still very impressive that you did this in 48h and funny voices! :)

bytegrove says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 2:27pm

Really impressive work for 48 hours! The gray graphics were a little boring, I think you could've tweaked them a little for a pretty cool Tron-esque style. The voiceovers were a really nice touch! Nice work!

lightsoda says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 3:57pm

Pretty fun, good job.

May 1, 2013 @ 6:15pm

Amazing. Just to have multiplayer working not to mention it being playable.

d_durham says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 7:44pm

Really impressive work! I thought the 'skycam' overview during respawn was a really nice touch, and the gameplay was solid.

theomnis says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 8:02pm

Awesome game! I just wish some people were online to play it when I was.

TheSarcastic says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 9:54pm

Wow! Really awesome :)

TheBenjaneer says ...
May 1, 2013 @ 11:23pm

Nice Game. Pretty fun, good Humor & audio.

May 2, 2013 @ 5:29pm

Wow, impressive work! Bots are very hard, though

Love the sound-effects, they make this a lot more fun :)

Was totally amazed watching this game being developed, on the live stream it was being play tested after only 8 hours. An incredible achievement, and I challenge anyone to be able to play this and keep a straight face. Well done =]

PAMVllo says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 12:18am

Really funny I like it! I follow your stream while I was doing my game

PsenFilip says ...
May 3, 2013 @ 1:28am

I watched a bit of the live stream as well. Actually I was watching your channel right when the theme was announced.

I played the game and had a great time a couple times. Pretty funny.

Congratz on the dev side of things as well as getting thousands of people to at least interact with creation and game development process.

mrx says ...
May 4, 2013 @ 3:03pm

pretty darn funny! pitch shifted voices are awesome!
Well done on getting it out in such a short amount of time.

May 5, 2013 @ 12:43pm

I love how much the bots look like LEGO figures.

ZYXer says ...
May 5, 2013 @ 7:23pm

Technically perfect and full of humor. Nothing else to be expected from quill18 ;)
I do miss an element which would make it more than just another FPS.

Nick Cash says ...
May 6, 2013 @ 6:20pm

Played in multiplayer just after the submission and had some fun. Very impressive work for 48 hours. I love the sound effects :)

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
