  • Healing has a 5 second cool down.
  • Not all weapons are equally good on the battlefield.
  • Sometimes, running is a valid option.


  • WASD keys to move.
  • Q or scroll wheel to swap weapons.
  • R to Reload.

  • i to open inventory.
  • Space to pick up items.

What is Project 2021?

Over the course of this year, I am trying to tell a story between all of my games. While you do not need to play any prior or following games to enjoy this, the lore does build. Can you piece together the story that is being told?

Best tip. Run till they kill each other.(Watch out for ammo, and the spread of some guns make things annoying.) Personally, I prefer one close range,(like sword, or shotgun but the former doesn't have ammo reqs) and one long range(One with ~40 damage), oh, also I wish ammo was more freely available. and maybe some sort of aim helper on some guns?(like a laser.) Makes it easy to distinguish.

So this is part of the cannon?

Yes but in a weird way. 

I tried to make it clear on the "How to Play" and "Win Screen" but this is supposed to be a training simulator to help prepare them. This game is one I want to revisit in the future to clarify some things. I think it also has a lot of potential (both narratively and gameplay wise) but needs a bit more work.

Does that answer your question?

Yep. i need to go back to read them I guess

I've learned a lot about storytelling this past year, mainly not to hide critical lore info in the tutorial text. As the games advance the story (hopefully) becomes more clear.

Cool. I also need to actually beat that level. lol
