At an undisclosed location in the solar system, a small group of elite soldiers in the ITO Special Forces has been selected to undergo the first part of their training to become Interstellar Marines. Transported to the military space carrier AIV Kitty Hawk, these aspiring marines are given their first task: successfully complete a challenging live fire exercise on a dynamic shooting range designed to improve combat proficiency with the standard issue MeiKuy CE-6 submachine gun. Passing this step will qualify soldiers to enter the Interstellar Marines program.
This is the scenario that has been captivating thousands of players, who have completed over 1 million challenges thus far in Bullseye, the popular online shooting experience from the independent game developer Zero Point Software. Beginning the 15th of February, millions of new gamers will have a chance to test their own shooting prowess with a special version of Bullseye on the world famous gaming site Kongregate.com.
Through Kongregate, gamers will have access to 22 grueling challenges in Bullseye, ranging from basic shooting of moving targets, to intense breaching exercises and hostage situations. As Bullseye players progress through 16 character levels, their standard issue SMG can be upgraded and customized in order to reach perfect scores in all challenges, so they can compare their skills with their friends on high-scores.
In addition, Bullseye has been entered into a contest on Kongregate.com that features the best new browser-based titles developed in Unity, an award-winning game engine. Bullseye will be competing for a grand prize of 10,000 USD.
“So far we have received tremendous feedback on Bullseye from the fans, but we have not tried it out on a audience outside our own community. Now that Kongregate has added support for Unity games, we have the opportunity to do just that,” said Game Director Kim Haar Jørgensen.“It will be exciting to see how Kongregate’s discerning users receive the game, and we hope that they’ll give us a good ranking in the competition—even though there are some great games out there!”
