Shootmania Platform: Free Speedrun Mode For New Players

Shootmania is to shooty games as Trackmania is to racing games: streamlined, almost austere, a platform for user creativity, and French. But though Trackmania cut away chaff to focus on the fundamentals of completing tracks quickly, Shootmania's own abstractions - unusual laser-y weapons and unique modes and so on - made it hard to comprehend to people trained on other multiplayer shooters. Shootmania Platform might…

Gun Wubbers: ShootMania Demo

Nadeo has tried nearly everything to get people to play ShootMania: there was a pre-release beta, they have a friend-of-a-friend scheme for you to invite people to play, and let's not forget the 24 hour telethon that Bono hosted. The problem is that the Nadeo office radio has been set to Wub Wub FM, and when the team meets to ask about the next stunt…

ShootMania’s Friend Game: Invites For Non-Players

When is a demo not a demo? That is a question that has plagued many, many, many people. It's why Plato and Socrates fell out at Wrestlemania -320BC. There are alphas, betas, demos, and even schemes that share games among friends, like Shootmania now has. Everyone who owns the game can invite a friend in to play the game in Elite mode, the 3vs3 attack/defend…

Forecast: Lasers – ShootMania Storm Out Now

ShootMania: Storm is the strangest name. On one hand, it sounds like some kind of lighthearted term for craving or addiction - kinda like party fever, March madness, or meth ragekillsanity. But before long, the "Storm" subtitle rolls in all ominous and gloomy, raining ¬†on even the most incurably diseased of parades. Naturally, then, ShootMania: Storm is a game about lasers. Oh, but there's also…

Enwub: Shootmania Storm Open Beta Dubstep Moment

You know its time to play a fast-paced modern videogame when the dubstep drops. So it is with Nadeo's latest trailer, which heralds - via the medium of distorted bass and exploding people - the arrival of the open beta for their multiplayer FPS, Shootmania Storm. Yes, the keys are no longer required, and anyone can walk in through the front door. The big lure…

Shootmania Storm Sees Red (Vs Blue) For Beta

Ubi send word that Nadeo's competitive FPS spin on the community-driven "Mania" platform, Shootmania: Storm, will soon be entering its second beta test phase soon: December 19th, in fact. That really is quite soon. Also check out this extract from their blurb: "Create your own frag style with the new movements and game modes." Haha, "frag style". That's how they say it on the street,…

On The Level: ShootMania’s Map Editor

ShootMania, my many well-placed sources have informed me, includes a potentially significant component of shooting. This, I believe, is probably an exclusive, so it should be treated with all the reverence and majesty such a title commands. But apparently - and I heard this through my ultra-secret source, who may or may not be a grapevine dressed in a trench coat that lives in a…

Storm In a Beta Cup: ShootMania Storm

ShootMania: Storm, with its creative tools and its day-glo combat, seems worlds away from the brown, gray and blood of so many of today's multiplayer man-shoots. I've yet to play it myself but because it looks like a cartoon rather than a war, I'm tempted to poke my head in and risk the slight public humiliation of hanging around the roots of a leaderboard or…
