Combat Theory (Prototype)
A downloadable game for Windows
Welcome to Combat Theory, a fast paced, multiplayer, third-person, action shooter game at it's early stages of development.
Eliminate enemy players with a variety of weapons, from shotguns, pistols and rifles, or if you prefer to be up close and personal, an arsenal of knives and swords.
Choose your meta, jump on walls, deflect incoming fire, do anything to survive and stack up that killing streak. Prove your Combat Theory.

Some of the limitations. (Will be addressed in future builds/patches)

This game looks great!
What's the port? I can't host?
Hey there! If you're setting up port forwarding on your router for internet matches with your friends, there's actually a hidden parameter on the hosting command in which you can add a custom port number.
When you begin to host a match add an extra parameter for your desired port number.
host <Room-name> <Max-Connecting -players> <Custom-Port-Number>
connect <Host-IP-Address> <Custom-Port-Number>
#Using the console command (F1) - You, as the host.
"host This_is_my_match 3 1232"
Then your friends can now connect using the command "connect" and add an extra parameter for your port number.
#Using the console command(F1) - Connecting friends.
"connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx 1232"
Replace the x's with your public IP in which you must provide to your connecting friends.
Note: Do not include the double quotes.
Note: Parameters are split/delimited by white spaces.
Disclaimer: Yet it is technically possible, I do not recommend internet matches since that portion of the game has not yet been optimized.
Thank You and looking forward to your feedback. :)
