Lockdown Protocol is a sci-fi themed platformer-style third person shooter game with built-in level editor.

You are a lone scientist in a research facility on lockdown. Something must have gone horribly wrong since everyone and everything is trying to kill you. You must fight your way through individual levels, collecting items and bigger weapons along the way, and finally reaching exit. Perfect your gameplay to reach the highest scores!

There is also an experimental multiplayer mode where you can challenge your friends to a deathmatch over the Internet or LAN.

The game is currently under development in public alpha phase.

I'm sorry I missed your comment here (I'm still not getting any notifications on new comments here).

Is the created level missing from the list of levels to select, or does it give some error when you try to play it?

The level must have a single player start point for it to be available for single player games.

When I load a level I made, the screen just shows the background and nothing else happens. I put in one of those SP Start blocks but it's like none of the objects load.

Problem solved, I replied to your email.

The game expects all moving stuff like enemies to stay inside area formed by wall/floor/ceiling blocks. The level in question had a lot of enemies placed outside outer walls, which eventually caused problems when starting the level.

Any plans on local coop game mode? Also known as 'couch coop'

Sorry for the late answer. There are no plans for a coop mode, local or otherwise. I have thought of local split screen multiplayer mode for basic deathmatch, but I'm not sure if that will ever get implemented.

The game is known to work in Debian Squeeze so it should work in Wheezy too, since Wheezy likely has later version of libc, which is generally backwards compatible.

That libXaw.so.7 requiring GLIBC_2.14 is installed by Desura, so I don't know where it came from. I will have to look into this. I will let you know when I know more.

In the meantime, if you have the time, you could try the direct download version. That might work better, since it uses libXaw provided by the system.

Great! Your reply was very helpful. This commands solve the problem for me:

cd .desura/games/the-platform-shooter/lib (I'm using the Desurium client)
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libXaw.so.7 libXaw.so.7

@lochen2014 No Greenlight yet. I'm planning to hold that off until the game is "ready enough", it's still pretty far from that point. Mar 5 2014, 2:01am
I FINALLY found the bug that made Lockdown Protocol's network game practically unusable on anything but near-ideal connection. Feels good :) Mar 4 2014, 2:17pm
