Gentrieve 2 is a "Metroid"-style 3D action game featuring completely random & customizable worlds.
The year is 3080. Mass Generators are creating everything, everywhere. However, thieves often steal Mass Generators in hopes of creating robot armies & fortresses. Thieves are terrible programmers, though, and their creations become uncontrollably hostile & fortresses wildly convoluted.It is your job to clear out these fortresses & return the faulty Mass Generators. Be warned, when the Mass Generator is taken offline, the fortress will soon implode!

v1.4 brings fixes to joystick controls (should hopefully fix looking around on all types of controllers). Oculus Rift updates have also been made -- GUI elements shouldn't overlap incorrectly, among other fixes.
There was a rather large balancing tweak made for v1.0, so if you are running an older version, you really want to update as prices were changed & damage tweaks were made.

@Raven67854 yeah, i think they like to hit on common themes to get their base riled up (taxes! regulations! government is slow & bad! etc)

@Raven67854 paid prioritization would likely cause more slower speeds if you are connecting to a place that *didn't* pay up
