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!


Enjoy Gentrieve 2 and many other great games on Desura.

Looks like it could be pretty fun, but it could benefit from some actual artwork (not talking about high-poly meshes or anything, just a little more pleasing aestethics - Super Mario 64 manages to look very pleasing to the eye with similar graphical limitations).
I really like the concept of random generation, but it's hard to pull off a balanced and not-too-repeating gameplay progression with it. Also, it looks like the game concists of many small rooms, with little verticality, which certainly is fine (by all means), but could get boring rather quickly (if there is little enemy-variety, and the AI is simple, it would feel like a longs string of arena fights against predictable enemies).

I'm sorry, I'm spouting text here instead of doing my homework, but I just really want to express that I see some excellent potential here, and I hope you really manage to pull it off!

Yeah, what None540 said. :-)

You have lots to say about the game without even trying the demo. There are vertical rooms (and everything in between). I understand it is hard to pull off balanced progression, but I knew that would be a challenge starting this game -- and it is something I believe I did a very good job on (with lots of help from playtesters).

Give the demo a try, you might like it! :)
