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!

0 comments by Phr00t on Jan 8th, 2015

Hello fellow swimmers & good news, Spermination has been updated! Of course, you always want to be shooting with the freshest, so grab the latest either from IndieGameStand or BMT Micro!

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.

Are you a Let's Player who wants to play Spermination? Let me know! Send me an e-mail to phr00t at the usual gmail dot com, and I can hook you up. Here is a video of another fellow gamer enjoying himself:

As always, please vote on Greenlight for this title! Want to play? You can buy it on IndieGameStand!

Hey, i came across a glitch. Basically, one of those ammo rooms, a obstacle was covering the portal, so when i went in, i got stuck, i tried doing backspace, but it still made me stuck. I got really annoyed, as i went really far and there wasn't any save points. Can you look in to this please? Thanks.

Heres the save:

I can't describe very well where the room is, but i can vaguely tell you. After the grappling room, in a room with 2 portals. A portal that goes to a health upgrade room, and a another room. Go to the other room and there are a futher 2 rooms. This time there is a b0$$ portal, and another portal which is a ammo room. Ignore the b0$$ portal and go in the ammo room, and you will basically get stuck forever. I couldn't find a way out. Thanks for replying.

These generators aren't being used to create homes anymore.
They are creating entire UNIVERSES.
Not only did those thieves cause quite a bit of trouble when they stole those mass generators but they unintentionally just showed us all what these god like machines are really capable of.

Your touchpad should support scrolling by swiping along the edge of the touchpad... this is how I play on the development machine.

I've just bought the game from Gamers Gate but cannot get the game to work. I get the message "Failed to create display. LWJGL Exception: Failed to set display mode (-2)." My video card is an Nvidia GTX 560 TI and I'm running Windows 7

What did you have set for your graphics settings when starting the game? Have you tried running in a windowed mode or full screen? For some reason, the engine I am using cannot initiate a 3D window to display the game...

The settings I've enabled are:
1920x1080, 32bpp, 59hz, 16x, Fullscreen and VSync

I tried all of that but still no luck I'm afraid. I still get exactly the same error message

Hmm, have you tried a different resolution? Perhaps try windowing it at 1024x768 first, "display mode (-2)" may refer to the resolution.

Wadeyboy Dec 13 2012 replied:

I'm afraid that also didn't work. Could it be that my version of Windows 7 is 64 bit? Whatever, it's looking like I've wasted my money. I know it was cheap but that's not the point. If I'm going to give money away, I'd rather it was to charity!

I've tried that but I'm afraid that didn't work either. But thankyou for trying to help. I've bought a lot of indie games, especially since Gamersgate have been doing all their cheap bundle deals and I've built up quite a collection now (not just indie games but ALL games and I have most of the top rated games, new and old - I'm housebound thru disabilty, so the computer is my lifeline and has stopped me going completely mad!). This is the only one I havent been able to get working!

Gentrieve 2 is a fascinating experiment in procedural generation. Gameplay is 3D Metroid-style -- a room-based FPS platformer -- but genre is less important here than the ideas the game presents and the mood it effectively sets. In the style of roguelikes and dungeon crawlers, each play-through provides a unique experience through random generation, right down to the texture of the walls. The aesthetic is refined (dark, retro-futuristic) and I'm constantly propelled by my curiosity and eagerness…
