Classic Single Player FPS Game Framework

Build your own FPS

Remember Doom and Duke Nukem 3D and other classic genre-defining first-person shooters (FPS)? After playing the game, you could use their level editors and make more games.

Purchase the FPS framework here: Epic Marketplace

Download Documentation: One Drive

Since that time, game engines have become more sophisticated and harder to use! Can we have the best of both worlds? A modern, high-quality game engine but with the framework already in place to make Classic Single-Player FPS games? Now you can!

Build your own classic single-player games with a modern game engine! Rapidly prototype your classic first-person shooter with this framework. Over a man-year of work has already been done so you don’t have to. Get an original FPS game up and running, fast! This is perfect for a game jam.

Written completely with documented Blueprints so you can extend and modify it. Even with no or minimal additional Blueprint writing, gives you what you need to walk in the footsteps of classic 3d games, except for game-specific artwork. You can also study the Blueprints to learn gameplay programming techniques!

Tutorials with sample solutions provided to get you started. A 90+ page manual gives an extensive reference. Hours of videos of building an Epic Game Jam game with (a beta version of) this framework are here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkJA9TCld1w0Mul9IUBDFBU_-dd2QpT8X.
