and on top of that  Chutulu keeps prank calling you ..

This game will make you go mad just by knowing it exist  .. or just make you bored and snort a lot .. either way, have fun!

this was pretty fun to speedrun. might wanna fix the glitch that makes you go faster when walking/running diagonally though.

I'm not sure I should.. after all it's  tradition in FPS to run faster diagonally (or at least it used to be)

what kind of engine did you use for this game?

it's a custom engine (c++ and opengl)

Hi! I am contacting creators/developers on behalf of a graduate researcher studying how Lovecraft is represented in games. If you have time to complete a 10-minute survey about Nekkrobox, please send a message to: masonsmith [at] tamu [dot] edu.



Why you don't propose to pay for your game, it seems to be really nice!

this was a very fun game however i had to take my headphones off lol. i like the feel of the gameplay, it reminds me a lot of quake. the open world level design is also very cool. but there is one problem that is hard to put to words, polish. i cant really describe it but a lot of things just feel thrown together. for example the face being poorly cropped, or there not being a melee. however, once you polish the game up it will be fantastic

Man that's ironic, a whole lot of polish went into it (you should have seen the old versions) 
but alas  shipping is cutting

Great game, wished that unity games we're like these games

Nice vid! Indeed, unity is a two edged sword

This was actually interesting.  A quick little shoot-em up game.  Some of the sound volumes were off like the sound of the pistol and enemies were extremely silent. However, after reading the comments it looks like that was intentional.  I like the little humor aspect of it.  If the developer(s) polish this up more and add more levels, it's a game I'd visit again.  

Attached is my game play video.  It's the first game in the video. 

Cool playthru! 
Nah, i just suck at sound fx

The problem with this is I see great potential here but the whole "bad on purpose" thing always rubs me the wrong way. I think this could be up there with retro fps games like Dusk if you polished a few things here and there. enjoyed it for what it was though so well done.

This was so amazingly atmospheric!

It was really fun!


Cool playthrough! (btw yes it's a burp sound)

I'm hoping there not being a shotgun and the pistol sounding absolutely quiet was intentional to make the game 'bad on purpose' or the sort? Why is the pistol sound design so....weak? It hurts.

Actually I like the pistol sound so dunno.. but the goal was to make a bad game so i guess it's fitting then

(also the R for jump, F to crouch is because I used to play Duke3D a lot and I found those keys were most convenient when moving with WASD .. I mean yea R is the first letter of reload and so on but my fingers were having none of it)

Hmm, I just always changed the controls back-then when playing those games, though Duke3D wise I probably played it more on the N64 than on any other platform lol

That was fun!  I especially love the ominous atmosphere and depiction of Lovecraftian monsters.  You also did an excellent job on the graphics engine, too.  I'm impressed:)

Thank you!
(also your game is waaay cooler than this one :)

(1 edit)

Wow!  Thanks for the compliments:)   I don't know about  "cooler", but I'm flattered, nonetheless.:)

However,  you've created your own 3D  engine for the job; that takes way more talent than I have!:)

Haha, this was fun! Great ending!

Glad you enjoyed it!

Dont know anything about chutulu or love craft probably would of made more sense if i did but still it was ok 

Thanks! (apparently me neither)
