SHNIPERS is a competitive multiplayer arena game for 2-4 players. In the game, you fire bouncing bullets that are as much a danger to your enemies as they are to yourself.


Originally created at the 2014 Toronto Game Jam, SHNIPERS is currently in active development, with many more levels and powerups yet to be added.
Multiplayer requires 2-4 gamepad controllers of any type in order to play.

The first iteration of the single player training mode is now available! It can be played with either a controller, or with Mouse/Keyboard.

One suggestion, XBOX controller support would be so nice.

Actually, the current build of the game 'should' support XBox controllers (or pretty much any standard USB controller). If you try it and it doesn't work though, let me know and I'll get that fixed right away!

Whenever I try to use my Xbox One controller it comes up as a playstation one

Oh! Interesting... not sure why that would be. I'll have to get me an xbox1 controller and see what that's about. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

Hey! Just uploaded a new build (v.0.4a) that fixes some of the issues with Xbox controllers. Hopefully should work for you now.

I have played this game only once back at TCAF a while back. Me and my friend really loved it. We took a card, bought pins of the goat-bot (cause that goat is so cool!) and altogther were just thrilled at the concept of this game! Its an interesting unique mechanic that keeps you on your feet. Really great to play with friends. So now I have this card in my house, this pin on my jacket, and whenever I see it I wanna play the game! But the only issue is, I can't play it on PC. I would love to play it on a console, but I can't use a PC to play it, especially not if I wanna play 4 players. So my question is: will this game ever be available on a console?

Hey! Glad to hear you really liked the game :D

At the moment, I'm still working towards an initial release on Steam (hopefully gonna start a greenlight campaign for that soon). Once that's done, I am absolutely going to approach the reps at Sony & Microsoft to see about getting a version on consoles. A game like SHNIPERS would be a perfect fit for consoles, so that's definitely my end goal.

Is there a trailer for this somewhere? I tried googling to no avail. Metals look super nice in screenshots, but would like to see it in motion.

Unfortunately, I've yet to put together a trailer for the game, a problem I am hoping to address shortly.

In the meantime though, here are a bunch of GIFs from throughout development showing things in motion:

Powerup!

Respawners are dangerous!
