3:16 Games
Home > Content > Page: 9.8
9.8 is the first 3:16 Games video game.  It is a 2D action-shooter game with pixel graphics.  There will be various game modes, such as CTF, Deathmatch, and possibly flag defense mode reminiscent of Nazi Zombies but 2D and probably worse!  The game revolves around the concept of gravity switching.  If you're standing on a surface, you're able to flip your gravity to any other surface.  Weapons are designed to be unique, slightly crazy, and to be used in tandem together.  Place a mine and use a rocket to push someone into it!  Forcibly flip someone else's gravity and drop them into a trap!  Our purpose is to create a fun multiplayer game that can be picked up and played for a little bit with a friend or sibling.  So enjoy, and let us know what you think!
