Lift release version 1.0 is now live! A brand new mech shooter awaits, just download and play!

Posted by Plinkotink on Dec 25th, 2010

That’s right folks, this is it: Lift’s first release!

So Lift fans, it’s time to finally play our game! It’s been almost four years, and now we’re ready to release…

I started this game (mod then) for the sole reason of turning its participants into an independent game development group. I think we are ready for such a thing. Lift was brought this far because there were many people who wanted to see it succeed, and because we felt a personal obligation to finish what we’d started. We feel that we have filled this obligation, but will continue to work on this project as long as there are fans that support it. Lift is a lot of fun to develop, but we need to do our own thing now!

So what are you about to play? Technically, you’re about to play our beta/first version. I stated back when I started this that I would skip the beta and go right into the final release. I am in the process of eating my words, because Lift is still lacking some features that we would like to further develop. So, for the time being, this is version 1.0

So have at it, people: jump in and start Lifting!

Made a video hope it helps spread the word, and gratz its really quite fun. Although I was having a little fps issue, just seemed to drop quite a bit on the highest settign 'fantastic', Or is it just that demanding?
I have a ATI hd 6870 so thought I'd be able to run it without a sitch.

Anyway I'll link my vid here later, tried to search for other lift videos and nothing really came up.

too many particles! seriously, the Pit map has a bunch of particles, and that seems to kill people's cards sometimes.

My brother actually has the same gpu as I do, and he can't run the game very well on pit. The particles might be processor bound.

Might be the clouds, I've noticed it slows down a lot in most games where there are overlapping smoke/cloud effects.

There are too many particles in this game!! My rig is slowing down when I'm playing this game. My rig is:
Intel GMA HD
Core i5 430m
2GB DDR3 Ram
300GB HHD

Any suggestion to make it move faster?

intel gma hd isn't exactly the most amazing graphics card.

And yeah, some of the maps do have too many particles. Just play on test tunnels or hidden valley more often than pit.
