Galactopticon is a single-player sci-fi comedy FPS starring a gang of hard-boiled interstellar pirates. The epic storyline will be supported by gameplay elements such as ironsight aiming and an RPG-style branching dialogue system.

We've actually made some cool progress, but it's all in small steps that you probably wouldn't notice if I didn't bring it to your attention like this.

First up, we've got Jaanus' zipper doors! How cool is that! You can see them at the end of the "Fighting Americans in space" video. You can also see them here:

Zipper doors!

Then there's the new skin for the Scorpion, which you also may have spotted in some videos. It also has a new muzzle flash effect, thanks to Mahalis!


We've also now got matching tables and chairs for one of our maps, by Jaanus.

Ions and tables and chairs, oh my!

Last but not least, we have some new blood decals, custom made. You can see them in action here:

Gore galore!

He's dead, Jim.

What hath God wrought?

The models for Serious Guy Sid Busco and the view model for the main character are coming along:

Wow! Serious guy.

Three stooges jokes incoming?

And I'd also like to mention that you should keep an eye out for some new impact effects by Mahalis!
