Celestial Impact is a team multiplayer FPS taking place on asteroids with spherical gravity. The game is unique in that the landscape can be deformed in every direction. Players can add or remove terrain during combat by aiming and firing a special tool called Dirtgun. Celestial Impact is a PC game developed in Sweden that started with a few university students having an idea of an unusual and fun game. The idea evolved into a larger spare-time project and has now reached a fully playable version.

Celestial Impact Beta 8 is now out and available for download. Celestial Impact is the unique multiplayer FPS that combines maps having spherical gravity with completely deformable terrain in all directions. Ran in to a wall that is too high to jump over? No problem, just build a slope and walk over the wall, or maybe dig a path going under it. Need a breather from intense combat? No sweat, dig a cave and go hide inside. Make sure to have your graphics card drivers up-to-date

hmm.. I will download this new version but hopefully someone is actually ON it. The other versions have all been dead online, and thats the only way to play.

The curse of most online games. Activity is created by people playing the game, but people are not playing since there is little to no activity.

Gather up some friends to play on a server and you'll make other people join in for sure.

No official server in Sweden? :(

Anyways great thing that you have released a map editor now! I'll check it out later. I remember the epic things I built by hand (by dirt gun). Time consuming but really fun :)

I'm getting an error as soon as the renderer starts:

glGetError END CreateDepthStencil: GL_INVALID_ENUM

I can e-mail the full log if the devs like.
