Receiver, a damn impressive indie game

Receiver is a gorgeous, intense new first-person shooter that explores the mechanics of handling a Colt 1911 A1. Developed during a seven-day FPS challenge, Receiver has you unraveling a conspiracy while exploring a building infested with deadly turrets and drones.

But there's more to it than that – once you die in Receiver, it's game over. A new game is immediately loaded with a new set of randomly placed rooms, enemies, and weapons.

Receiver from Wolfire Games is available for $5 on PC and Mac, or free for those who have pre-ordered Wolfire's Overgrowth.
