Guncraft is now being alphafunded by Desura! Join the open beta today!

Posted by Darknuke on Aug 14th, 2012

It's finally here! Guncraft is now available to play on Desura's alphafunding system. Join for free in the open beta or pre-order for exclusive bonuses and a discount on the retail release.

Guncraft's Current Beta Features -

  • 8 weapons, from the traditional assault rifle to the speciality hookshot.
  • 8 grenades/consumables, including sticky grenades, C4, bouncing betties, and medkits.
  • Over a dozen killstreaks. Take to the skies in a helicopter, or mow down your enemies in a turret or AC-1337.
  • 7 Combat/Construction Classes. Choose combinations like ninja architect, demolitionist miner, or soldier carpenter. The choice is yours.
  • Tons of maps, from the original Craft Tower or Temple of Blocks, to the inspirired Empire Strikes Craft or Cubetron City.
  • Robust map making tools to create magnificent maps to your heart's content.
  • Much more. Check out the beta and see for yourself!

The image below, taken from our website, displays the pre-order bonuses you get when you purchase Guncraft now. The tileset that made Cubetron City/Central, the specialty character and weapon skin, and an unannounced DLC Pack that will come out at a later date.

So block and load people! We'll see you on the battlefield!

This kind of game should be a free game, not a paid game. If we want to play a game like this, we will just turn to Minecraft since it has more players and your beta doesn't even have like 2 players at 1 time -.-

Make it free then. If you want players to play and to earn some money. Make it free, give special skins or something special to donators (excluding maps, weapons or anything that make the game unfair).

We can't make money doing that. Making games are extremely expensive. We are in open beta right now, so you are more than welcome to play it, for free, as much as you'd like, until release. If you don't want to pay for it then, that's your choice.

Excellent point. However, have you considered doing more advertising? I haven't seen much news regarding the project on ModDB, and I suspect this may be the case elsewhere. (I could be very wrong, though - I don't actively follow this project.) If more people knew about Guncraft, I bet they'd be more inclined to try it. Also, I'd recommend reading "Indie PR on a Shoestring", a rather excellent and insightful article by Mr. Robert Fearon on some ways to inexpensively advertise your game, which can be found at .

I don't know why everyone is being really derogatory about this game, it's really quite polished and fun to play for its Beta stage. Its like Ace of Spades but better!

Currently yes. You can do free-build mode offline. We'll also be adding a mode that can be played alone or with friends.

Darknuke, I already purchased this when you first allowed us to on the website and was wondering if I could someone get a code for it on Desura? If there is a way could you please message me?
