Wolfire Monthly Update - November 2020

Receiver 2 Steam Achievements

One of our favourite additions to Receiver 2 since launch has been the introduction of Steam achievements. We have loved watching players go beyond the standard receiver training, and prove themselves a cut above the rest by unlocking the various new achievements.

R2 Achievements

Maybe you want to start simple with the Three for Three achievement, earned by killing three enemies with three bullets in a row. Or for the more hardcore receivers out there, there are challenges like breaking every breakable part of a shock drone which would earn you the achievement Drone Demolition. And there are so many more challenges for you to achieve and improve your skills as a receiver.

Receiver 1 Workshop Support

The original Receiver has been given full Steam Workshop support. This means you can now play and share custom tilesets, listen to custom tapes, and try your hand at the different guns crafted by other Receiver fans. There has never been a better reason to go back to the game that started it all!

Wolfire Merchandise

Back in August we launched an official Wolfire Games merchandise store, and we've been delighted with the response to it.

R1 Sale

Seeing fans post photos of them wearing Overgrowth shirts, using Receiver phone cases and decorating things with Wolfire stickers, has been so heartwarming. The shop is currently full of items that will help you rep all of your favorite Wolfire games and even Wolfire itself. There are so many great designs by talented artists on a range of different items. If you are a fan of even one of our games, we are sure there will be something there for you.

Overgrowth Map Jam

Mid June saw the beginning of the most recent community run Overgrowth map jam. For those unfamiliar, every couple of months our wonderful community comes together to design Overgrowth maps with a specific theme. This jam's theme was "Famous Movie Fights" and has three fantastic entries that you can play right now!

After playing all three maps you can vote on the winner and then join our Discord server to see what everyone else thinks!


An Indie Approach to Breaking Glass

The second part of our exploration of the Receiver 2 glass breaking effect went live this month, and we were truly humbled by the response. We were delighted to find out you all seemed to find this topic as interesting as we did.

In our next video we're planning to explore the guns in Receiver 2, what we learned and how we make them. If that sounds interesting to you you're going to want to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you can catch it when we upload it!

Receiver 2

We kicked off April with the release of our brand new game, Receiver 2. The overwhelmingly positive reception to our work has been truly humbling, and we'd like to thank each and every one of you for giving the game a shot. We have big plans to support the game with content patches, so keep an eye out for future updates.

If you haven't picked up Receiver 2 yet, you can buy it here or get it in a bundle with the soundtrack here.


Live Stream

OG Sale

This month we also ran our first ever Twitch stream, with the talented Leo Wiggins (Voice from Receiver 2) taking the wheel to play the game for the first time. It was an absolute blast to hang out with you all in our Twitch chat and we're super excited to do more streams in the future, so make sure you follow our Twitch channel so you don't miss them!



The Receiver 2 Teaser You NEVER Saw

Back in March we decided to show you all one of the Receiver 2 teasers that we never released from our reveal event in December 2019, and also explained why we ultimately decided to cut it from the line-up.
