The Turn-Based Shooter Kit is an easy to use template for creating first-person turn-based shooter type of games!

While the kit uses sprite visuals and a shooter setting, the logic can easily be applied to 3D models and a fantasy setting.

Supports PC and Web.

Created using Blueprints, fully documented and easy to customize.

The player has to battle enemies in turns while collecting several pickups (e.g. weapons, ammo, keys).

The game includes multiple types of enemies, which can be easily extended.

The kit contains easy to understand systems for health, ammo, stats, inventory, leveling, save/load functionality and more.

The template is maintained and open for suggestions. Feel free to get in touch!
