Hello guys!

Today is the Demo premiere of the game on which I started working 3 years ago. I would like to introduce you to the RAG3 - post-apocalyptic shooter with time manipulation mechanics.

RAG3 is a 2D top-down shooter game made on top of self-made multiplatform engine (using C++, SFML and TGUI). The gameplay consists of skillful levelling, with elimination of all obstacles encountered (enemies and inanimate things as well) along the way. The basic feature of the game is the significant dynamics, most of the time requiring the considerable concentration. The game's goal is providing sensations and joy from battles with various creatures while wandering through many types of locations (from mazes to open worlds).

One of the most distinguishing features of the game is real-time time manipulation mechanics. Player is allowed to slow down the gameplay for a short period of time (bullet time) and is able to travel back to the past. This feature is strictly integrated with battles and can be used in a fully dynamic way.

The plot of the game can be discovered only directly through the gameplay. If you want to learn more about RAG3 world, download the game! You can play in multiplayer mode with your friends as well!

Beware! Travelling in time comes with consequences. Be careful when you meet your past self!

That looks pretty cool, even if it's not exactly up my ally :D

Nice work on getting this that far and awesome that the code is publicly available!

Thank you for the feedback! I realize that this kind of genre is a bit specific. It suits me best though :P

Finishing the demo was a bit of an accomplishment. I experienced few moments with total lack of motivation through those years. But what can I say - it's always good to just keep going.

Best wishes!

Several players requested few changes and reported bugs found in the demo version.

https://jul3x.itch.io/rag3/devlog/469411/rag3-post-demo-fixes-are-now-out

What’s changed:

  • Most importantly - screen shake is now adjustable and is a little bit decreased. Now players can turn it off completely or even increase twice. New parameter can be set via ‘Settings’ menu in ‘General’ tab.
  • Better responsiveness of menu for lower resolutions
  • Displays with lower resolutions run RAG3 with more suitable zoom
  • Better visibility for messages and windows with transparent backgrounds
  • Minor user interface fixes

Happy New Year! jul3x
