Lockdown Protocol is a high-score-oriented shooter/platformer game with built-in level editor and multiplayer support.

You are a lone scientist in a research facility on lockdown. Something must have gone horribly wrong since everyone and everything is trying to kill you. Fight your way out, collect items and bigger weapons on the way and blast your enemies into pieces! Complete levels fast and leave nothing alive to reach the highest scores!

Note: This game is still a work in progress. It is feature-complete and has been released for public beta testing, but it is not a finished product yet.

The game comes in two versions: free playable demo and full version. By pre-purchasing the game now you support its development and get an early access to the full version. You'll also get a 20% discount!

Visit official game page for direct downloads and more information. You can find Lockdown Protocol on Desura too:

Lockdown Protocol has gone beta! This means that the game is feature-complete and from now on I will focus on fixing bugs and polishing existing features. The final version will likely be released in the first quarter of 2015.

Change list for this release is shorter than usual. The external display settings dialog has been removed and those settings can now be found in the in-game settings menu. I made a new level background model to replace the one I quickly hacked together for the first alpha versions almost four years ago. Not a big change, but it somehow makes everything look prettier.

Local multiplayer match

Here's full list of changes since 0.20.0 alpha release:

  • New more detailed background model.
  • Added some secret cheat codes.
  • Added video mode settings in system settings menu and removed external configuration dialog.
  • Removed network packet rate and decal count from settings menu.
  • Added support for copy/paste in menus.
  • Gamepad compatibility improvements.
  • Fixed load screen status text updating.
  • F2 key now releases input grab as workaround for cases where alt-tab does not work.

More information and direct downloads are available on the website.

It's good to hear that you like it!

This game too will be split into free playable demo version and paid full version. I will try to keep the free version worth playing too, but obviously there will be some restrictions compared to the full version.

I hoping to have this game published on Desura at some point, but I haven't really done anything about it yet. I will take a closer look at Desura after next alpha release..

I really like how this is turning out. It seems really neat!

Some thoughts:
Add full A, S, F, W support (so you can jump with W as well)
Add mouse support (much easier to move around with)

Other than that, everything is fine. The animations are awesome.

I can definitely add jump with W-key too.

Did you try the current mouse control (enabled from settings menu)? I know it's probably not what you wanted, but I'd still like to hear what people think of it.

I'm starting to give in to implementing a "real" mouse control where you move a visible cursor on screen and player character always aims to the cursor..
