About Interstellar Marines:
Interstellar Marines was launched on Steam’s Early Access on July 2nd, 2013. Since then the developers have released 11 updates and several smaller update fixes. Interstellar Marines is being developed on the Unity 3D engine and is currently in Pre-Alpha.
When complete, Interstellar Marines will resurrect the old school tactical FPS, and offer a unique blend of co-op, role-playing and nonlinear gameplay. Set in a believable future, you will take on the role as an elite soldier handpicked to join Project IM, a top secret military program being assembled to protect mankind from all dangers outside our solar system.
Interstellar Marines is inspired by Half-Life, System Shock 2 and Rainbow Six 3: Raven Shield. The game is all about evolving the FPS recipe with all the inspirations ZPS has assimilated since the birth of the genre. The goal is an evolutionary leap forward driven by their compulsive interest in science fiction, role-playing, military realism, and respect for first person immersion.
