Sublevel Zero first-person roguelike shooter has been released for Linux, Mac and Windows PC

sublevel_zero_first_person_roguelike_shooter_releases_for_linux_mac_windows_pc

Sublevel Zero is a first-person roguelike six-degree-of-freedom #shooter set in a universe where reality is falling apart.  Entire worlds have been destroyed by tears in #space, and soon there will be nothing. As other clans fight over the scraps, yours delves into the ruins in search of knowledge to save humankind.

Player take control of a lone #gunship pilot whose mission is to loot and craft ancient technology. Descend into a vast underground facility, fighting through procedurally generated zero gravity environments to recover the technology you and your clan need to survive.

No saves. No continues. You have one chance to make it through alive, so make it count. And yes, the game plays very nice in Linux.

From SIGTRAP Games and Mastertronic, Sublevel Zero combines the classic gameplay of 6DoF shooters like Descent and Forsaken with the tension of a roguelike, including permadeath. Fly through procedurally generated environments and think fast in gravity-defying combat. Improve your ship by looting fallen enemies for parts to craft new tech and weaponry.

Sublevel Zero is available now for Linux, Mac and Windows PC with a launch-week discount via digital distributors, including Steam, GOG.com, Green Man Gaming and Get Games.

Indie developer #Sigtrap and independent games publisher Mastertronic are excited to announce 6DoF #shooter Sublevel Zero is blasting its way to Linux, Mac and Windows PC this October.

Sublevel Zero is a #firstperson, six-degree-of-freedom roguelike shooter set in a universe where reality is falling apart.

Exterminate enemy fighters, annihilate surface foes and wipe out menacing turrets- you never know what’s lurking around the corner! Fly and rotate in every direction while attacking from all angles.

Make every shot count, as there are no saves!
