Ever since TimeGate filed for bankruptcy and dropped off of the map, little was to be known about the whereabouts of their aesthetically simple and corky TPS Minimum, which was in development at the time the business let go of their staff and shut their doors. However, it appears the independent studio known as Human Head is gearing up with Atari to get this game back into motion, as the new website for Minimum states it is on its way to early access.
After nothing was heard of whose hands this graphically “minimal” adventure was being put into, it was easy enough to throw in the towel and assume it was another data pile in the forgotten realm of broken F2P’s– but the revival is among us.
A few game modes are in the works, which include your usual deathmatch and rank PvP’s, as well as an objective-focused Titan mode, which pits teams of creep farmers against each other, pumping their titans full of power by collecting Titan Crystals, all the while taking down any enemies and stopping their efforts to counter your Titan. Although Titans are more susceptible to counter Titan attacks, they can still be damaged by most weapon sources, which sounds a lot like a shower of bullets waiting to happen. The end-game goal is to charge your titan across the map into the enemy territory, where it can then destroy their core.
Much can be debated as to whether or not the graphics can hold a modern interest. However, this particular concept must have something to offer considering its revival and involvement with Atari. Check in with the official website to see where this resurrected TPS is headed in the future.
