About The Game

Blockstorm is a FPS game set in a world made of destructible blocks. The voxel nature of characters and maps and the in-game editor allows you to fully customize your game and quickly share your experience with other players. You are free to create your own maps and characters from scratch, or to customize existing ones. All maps and characters included in the game are made with the same tools that are available to the public. Weapons range from precise rifles to heavy machine guns, or even explosives capable of destroying hiding places and creating tactical advantages. You can pick out your own load out, choosing between a set of weapons configured by the creator of the map. You can build everything in Blockstorm, and you can destroy it.

Getting It To Run

Install Steam (if you don't have it installed already), then start it. You will need to create a new account, if you do not already have one. Once you have Steam up and running, go to the store tab. Click on the Linux tab if you wish and search for the game. Click on and download the demo. If you have updated your system, including graphics drivers, you should be good to go.
