Try the sandbox demo!


You assume the role of team leader in the tactical response team of a major city police force. Your work is to plan and carry out tactical entry in barricade and hostage situations with the least possible loss of life the desired outcome.

Crisis Response is a side-scroller that strives to provide a realistic model for projectile interactions and injuries. Once someone is hurt the player will be working against the clock to save them. Gear and tactics must be chosen carefully to minimize damage and resistance.

Sandbox 7

Sandbox 7

It's been a while again since the last article. I didn't write about the previous update but I'll skip that and focus on the new one. If you've been following you'll know what's happened, and if you play the game it contains all the previous stuff too so there's nothing to miss. Here's the new sandbox:



Performance improvements

The new update focuses on performance improvements. It's been going through some rounds of testing already and in terms of performance it looks like a good improvement over the last release. Many have voiced problems with performance in the previous versions and I think it will be a bit better now.

What did I change to improve performance then? I have rebuilt many parts of the resource management so that I have better control over how many objects of certain kinds can exist at the same time. On top of that I've redesigned some parts of the menus and user interface, to make the performance settings more understandable. I think that will help as well.

New settings sliders

New sliders for performance settings.


Performance benchmark

Entirely new is the benchmark feature. The benchmark is a small level that puts three characters through a hail of bullets several times over, with steadily increasing settings. The frame rates are recorded and in the end the game suggests settings that should result in good performance.

Speedy performance benchmark

The new performance benchmark running sped up.

Blood streams

There is a new in-game feature too. I've made it so that blood leaving wounds under high pressure form streams. The streams turn into particles as they fly.

Blood streams in slow motion

The new blood streams in slow motion, breaking up into particles.


When the streams hit the floor they bounce off and break down into particles. It creates a kind of splashing effect.

Blood stream from a static character

Simple dismemberment

I've also implemented a very simple dismemberment that is triggered by the fragmentation grenades. It's very basic so I expect to improve it more later.

Simple dismemberment

This character held a grenade when it exploded and lost a forearm.


Thank you testers

I want to thank everyone who helped me test the release. Throughout the testing I changed things with the blood several times as you may have noticed. There are many parameters that make up how the blood looks and functions, and the final result is a compromise between a number of different things. I still don't feel I've found the perfect blend of those factors so I will keep tweaking. You can expect it to change again in the future.

Thanks for reading. Try the new sandbox and please share it around!

Love the Game, had tons of fun with it (I don't think painting the rooms red counts as the main goal of the game but w/e :D).
But I would appreciate some more less lethal weapons, like a tazer or something..the rubber is just...I dunno.

Love you <3

Thanks! The taser is in development. There will probably be some less lethal grenades in the future too.

That is probably further away than the next update. So I can make the AI use it as well.

and maybe be able to change your gun and ammo type while in a level on sandbox would be nice

I've thought about this sometimes too, but right now I feel it's not worth the effort (compared to making other features).

Probably in a couple of weeks. Some dev time has fallen away from me lately and I have some more disappearing still so it will take a bit longer this time.

What about the Mac players? Hopefully you consider adding other OS support for Mac, because I desperately want to play this amazing game on Mac sometime!
