High Flying Sci-Fi Shooter LEAP Launches New Modding Tools

Canadian based independent video game developer Blue Isle Studios has launched modding tools for its twisted team-based, first-person shooter, LEAP. The ‘LEAP Design Works’ update brings endless opportunities for community content through new modding features allowing fans to modify virtually anything in LEAP. Players will be able to make new modes of play, build original maps, create slick character skins, modify vehicles physics, redesign weapons and more. Through the new LEAP modding suite powered by mod.io, modders can unleash their creativity.

Select members of the LEAP community have worked with the Blue Isle Studios dev team to create new mods including an ‘IcyDay’ map and the ‘TeamDMod’ Zombie mode mod. To see more mods available for download, please visit the LEAP mod.io homepage.

In LEAP, players will select from four unique classes, each delivering a unique balance of power, agility and defense as well as epic abilities that bring shock and awe to foes. Players can choose from different gameplay modes including PVP mode and PVE mode Special Operations, where four-player teams face off against new enemies like the specialist and stealth assassins.

Call in orbital strikes, set up automated turrets, or control guided cruise missiles with exosuits armed to the teeth. Large-scale combat takes place on a variety of stages and skilled mercenaries use jetpacks, grappling hooks and highly distinctive Personal Vehicles to close the distance on control points and active firefights. Nothing is more menacing than a LEAP mercenary saddled on a robo-moose galloping at full speed.

LEAP is available now on Steam Early Access for $29.99. Mercenaries are invited to become a founder by purchasing the Founder’s Edition ($19.99), which is only available during Early Access and includes custom skins, contract bonuses, keychains and more.

Keep the meter and your morals running in The Last Taxi

Today, developer ZenFri Inc. is excited to launch The Last Taxi onto Steam VR. The Last Taxi is a VR adventure where players will explore a fully automated world as the city’s only human taxi driver.

Players will find themselves behind the wheel of a hovering taxi as the only organic transport operator in the futuristic city of Progress Point, a megacity fractured by politics, morality and money. With automation having all but eliminated the need for human labour, work is incredibly hard to come by and every day is a struggle for survival for those not among the lucky few of the city’s elite citizens.

After carrying a mysterious wounded passenger in your cab, they disappear suddenly, leaving trouble for the player in the form of an unregistered infant. Players will have to work hard to support both themselves and the infant while they figure out what’s best for them. Thankfully it’s not a decision that will be made in a vaccuum, with over 80 passengers with their own thoughts, philosophies and problems, players will become a true citizen of Progress Point, and can decide the future for the infant that they believe to be the best with over 20 different endings.

As players explore both the soaring heights and rotting underbelly of Progress Point, they will carry passengers to their destinations, providing a comfortable journey and pleasant conversation throughout. Helping citizens to relax might just encourage them to open up to you about their problems, and with no saints found among survivors, players will have to consider either helping them with their woes, or reporting their shadier customers to the proper authorities. There’s never a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ solution, but a player’s decisions could have far-reaching consequences.

Standard taxis in Progress Point come equipped with mandatory listening devices (as per governmental regulation), but as a non-automaton players can customize and modify their taxi with a variety of above board and under the table upgrades. Improve comfort for passengers, or invest in remote hacking equipment to unlock areas taxi drivers really shouldn’t be in.

The Last Taxi introduces players to a diverse cast and a one-of-a-kind setting, creating a true sense of place. Progress Point truly comes alive for players as they explore one of the most vibrant and alive worlds to ever come to the world of VR.

A nuanced story of morality and meters, each decision carries weight, no two playthroughs of The Last Taxi will be the same as players ask passengers (and themselves) the big questions, “Is it right to commit crimes to survive?”, “Do machines have souls?” and “What should you do when a stranger leaves a baby in your car?”, okay that last one might be a bit more literal.

Dee King, Co-Founder of ZenFri Inc. said: “The Last Taxi is a ‘sonder’ experience. It’s not a word you often hear, but it describes the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. This perfect word is what our game encapsulates.

In The Last Taxi, you play yourself – the last human driver – having conversations at the end of the world. You show up very briefly in the lives of the characters in Progress Point; some you help, some you hinder, and some maybe you have no profound impact. Much like real life, you’ll encounter all sorts of people, all of whom have their own big and complicated lives, and you might only be a fleeting moment in their day.”

The Last Taxi is available now on the Oculus Rift and Vive via Steam VR, priced $29.99 / €26.99 / £22.99.
