A downloadable game for Windows


A prototype showcasing various elements of Mithos, a narrative driven first person shooter currently in development.  Everything you see is a work in progress and subject to change; this is a proof of concept for the core mechanics I intend to flesh out into a full experience. Thanks for giving Mithos a play, and let me know what you think in the comments. Consider joining the Discord server!

-Several "vignette" maps intended both as stress tests for various hardware and playable sketchbooks of different environment types planned for release in the future.

-Arena: Small, contained level with spawnable enemies to experiment with combat and movement mechanics.

-Dungeons 1 & 2 (UNFINISHED): rough blockouts for the intended flow of indoor combat and platforming.

-6 ranged weapons, throwable equipment (grenade only ATM), 2 dedicated melee weapons, and close-quarters melee attacks.

-Inventory system with several pieces of armor and energy color options to customize your Ranger!

-Near complete gamepad implementation, including aim assist, acceleration, and reticle magnetism (disabled on mouse and keyboard)

-AMD Ryzen 7 2700X @ 3.70 GHz


Secondary Rig:
