Shadowgun: DeadZone has been opened up for its community to create new maps and mods
| Shadowgun: DeadZone
In a surprising turn, Madfinger Games has released a "Game Master's Kit" for its multiplayer shooter Shadowgun: DeadZone so that the community can make its own maps and mods.
It's available as a free download on the Unity Asset Store and contains two maps, two game modes, 21 weapons, and even lets you host a game server for up to 12 players.
"Some multiplayer games have mod support that allows people to modify or add various parts of the game like maps, game assets, scripts or configurations files," writes Madfinger.
"But SHADOWGUN:DeadZone Game Master’s Kit goes further than that. It is a snapshot of a real Unity 5.1 project with game sources and assets."
It's even possible to port the game to a new platform such as PC if you wish. Madfinger is inviting anyone who is interested in game development to give it a look.
You can modify everything contained in the pack of sources and assets. You can even re-use them in other projects so long as you adhere to the public license agreement.
You can download Shadowgun: DeadZone itself for free on the App Store and Google Play.
