SYNTHETIK is a unforgiving shooter with classic RPG and Rogue elements in a world dominated by machines. Fight as android though the headquarters of the machine persecutors, liberate humanity and avert the impending end. Can you reach the highest floor of the first Citadel and find the Heart of Armageddon ?...


Intense Challenge
Everything in Synthetik is powerful. You will die. Elite Enemies also act differently.

Full Friendly Fire
Friendly fire on both sides. Things can and will go horribly out of hand.

Classic RPG & Rogue Elements
Develop and improve your character items and weapons, access full combat logs and stats.

Semi Random Generation
Encounter new challenges and opportunities each time you play affected by your actions.

It's in the details
The game is built around edge cases, nearly all things can act in surprising ways.

High Stakes
No respawns. The machine god will stop you at all costs.
Synthetik is as rewarding as it is unforgiving.

Deep and rewarding gunplay is at the heart of the game:

- Complex modeled movement based recoil system
- Eject magazines / bullets before reloading
- Left bullets in magazines are realistically discarded on reload
- You can time your reload for faster execution and other boni
- Each weapon can be found in one of 15+ different Variants
- Each weapon can be found with one of 3+ different ammo types
- Weapons can be upgraded three times in 10 categories each!

Each weapon variant changes from stats to burst patterns, even sounds! (Indicated in green). Weapons feel different each time you acquire them! You can also further upgrade your favorite weapons with the upgrade kits you find.

You will find many usable items, ranging from health vials and steroids, unidentified potions with unknown effects, to grenades, drones that shoot down bullets mid flight or passives that trigger on special actions.

The special clue is that items can be increased in power by sharing your experience data with them. You will have 3 slots for items to accumulate power with you, so it's up to you which one you continuously level. This also gives items different roles and priorities each time you play.

There are many other elements to the game, such as the shrines of the machine god, the terminals with many special events (picture), the memory module system, the raising terror level and much more, but we don't want to spoil everything right now!

Feeling inspired and want to share your ideas and concepts for items, weapons, events and other things with us and the community? Write here in the shared Google document!

So here we are. Synthetik is mainly made by 2 People, Eric "Shrike" and Alex. We have spent around 1.5 years on the Game so far and we are really curious to hear what you think about it! (Shoutout to all the outside help!)

We want to start a Kickstarter soon and we need your help!
