Receiver 2 One Year Anniversary

Add Comment! By Jack Morris on April 15th, 2021

Happy Birthday to Receiver 2!

We can hardly believe it's been an entire year since we launched Receiver 2, but as of today R2 is officially a full year old. We wanted to take a moment to say thanks to our incredible community for all the love and support we've received (heh) since the game launched. Because of you the game current sits proudly on Steam with "very positive" reviews, we're practically drowning in awesome fan art and hilarious memes, and we even won an award!

So, from all of us here at Wolfire, thank for your overwhelming support. Here's to another year of Receiver 2!

Receiver 2 Compound Update

We here at Wolfire have been hard at work on this compound update for months and we are so excited for you to finally experience it. This is by far the biggest addition to the game since launch!

If you have mastered all the ranks of the Receiver 2’s story mode or just need a break from tape hunting, you can now explore the brand new Receiver compound. This isn’t just a place for you to relax though, This compound is packed with new ways to improve your skills, gain knowledge, and prepare for the coming threat!

R2 Achievements

Whether you want to improve your aim before facing the turrets and drones in the dreaming or you just want to prove you're a deadeye with every gun, the live firing range is the first place you’ll want to head in the compound. This training ground allows you to use every gun uninterrupted by the threat.

R2 Achievements

Next you’ll want to head to the Challenge Dome. This area is where Receivers can compete in firing challenges, these are the ultimate tests of precision and speed.

R2 Achievements

But of course, firearms are only half of what makes up Receiver 2. This compound also contains many secrets and lore documents that are waiting to be found. Explore the sprawling compound, find these clues and maybe you will be closer to discovering the truth about the threat.

We would absolutely love to hear about your experiences at the Receiver 2 compound so jump in and get exploring!

Add Comment! By Cameron Morris on February 9th, 2021


We are only a month into 2021 and here at Wolfire things are already in full swing. We are going to break down the latest Wolfire news and updates starting with a massive thank you!

Last year the Wolfire community helped Receiver 2 get into the finals of the Game Development World Championship. It was an amazing turnout and we were so grateful for the support you all showed us. Last month voting was opened for the finals and we were overjoyed that once again you all came out to show your love for Receiver 2. Thanks entirely to your passion we are proud to announce that Receiver 2 won the 2020 GDWC Fan Favourite award! We can not express how much it means to us that you are such a dedicated and supportive fan base.

Overgrowth Map Jam January 2021

Speaking of the Wolfire community, the first Overgrowth Map Jam of 2021 took place last month! If you are not aware, the Overgrowth Map Jam is a long running map creation competition currently managed by community member, Fason7. Every Jam people create Overgrowth maps, or in some cases whole campaigns, based on the Jam’s specific theme. This Jam yielded many great maps and you can try them all out for yourself on the Steam workshop!! We also streamed many of the maps over on the Wolfire Games Twitch channel. For more information on the map jam and also all things to do with the Wolfire community, we highly recommend checking out our Discord Server.

Receiver 2 Merchandise Drop

If you are yet to check out the Wolfire Games merchandise store now is the perfect time as we just launched a brand new type of product. In addition to the many T-shirt, sticker and phone case designs available, you can now get your very own Receiver 2 poster! Not only is this a brand new design perfect for any Receiver out there but it’s also the first poster we have ever released on the store, but it certainly won’t be the last!

Upcoming Content

And finally let’s talk about games! As we mentioned in our last post, Receiver 2 has been updated quite a bit since launch and we have been working hard to make sure players always look forward to coming back to the game. With that being said, you might have noticed that something strange is happening on some of our socials. We don’t quite know how, but there does seem to be some kind of message or warning making its way through to our fans. Only time will tell what it could all mean but be sure to stay updated on Wolfire Games if you want to be up to date with the latest Receiver 2 news.


Wolfire Monthly Update - January 2021

Happy New Year!

From everyone here at Wolfire, we want to wish you all a happy new year! Last year was huge for us. The launch of Receiver 2 was something we had been building to for a long time and to see it finally in the hands of you folks was amazing.

R2 Achievements

Since the release, not only have you been enjoying the game but you've been using it to make your own art! Every single week we see great videos, amazing fan art, and hilarious memes, all made in the game. Checking the Wolfire Discord server is always a great experience because there’s always a new piece of fan generated content or an interesting discussion going on.

With Receiver 2 finally in peoples hands, we were able to use player's feedback to start adding to and improving the game. Of all the updates that we’ve made to the game, one of our favourites of 2020 has to be the Halloween patch. We were very excited for everyone to meet our brand new enemy, ‘The Stalker Entity’, and to be able to reveal it in such a fun way to tie it in with Halloween was a delight. Watching people's reactions to the terrifying new enemy will never get old and we appreciate people for sharing those reactions with us through Let’s Plays and Live Streams.

In 2020 we also tried a lot of new things here at Wolfire outside of game development and the response from our fans has been humbling. We have gotten more experimental with our video content, such as our series about the history of glass VFX in video games and its effect on Receiver 2’s development. We launched the Wolfire merchandise store which finally allowed people to show off their Receiver 2/Overgrowth love, and it was with that merchandise store that we were able to raise money for the charity Mermaids with an exclusive Pride variant of the Wolfire logo shirt. We also started streaming on the Wolfire Twitch channel leading to some very fun interactions with the Wolfire community.

We are not even scratching the surface of everything that happened at our little corner of the internet last year but we wanted to do a round up of some of the biggest things and give a massive thank you to everyone who has been with us and who has joined us throughout 2020. It was an absolutely wild year and while we are very proud of what we accomplished, you better believe we have more planned for 2021. So keep an eye on our socials and the Wolfire discord to see what is coming this year!

Game Development World Championship

The GDWC is an annual competition for game developers. This year Receiver 2 was nominated for the weekly ‘fan favourite’ award and you guys came out in full force. Thanks to you all, Receiver 2 won the round, taking us one step closer to proving that we have the best community in the world. This means that R2 will be up against all the other winners in a future round. We really appreciate you all for this and we will make sure to keep you updated.


If you are interested in finding out more about this, our very own Max Danielsson did an interview about the win (and Receiver 2 in general) with konsoliFIN.

Regular Wolfire Live Streams

We try to take every chance we have to interact with our wonderful community, from our discord server, to our comment sections, to our social posts. It’s for that reason that we are super excited about starting regular Wolfire streams on our Twitch channel!

R1 Sale

You can now regularly watch us stumble through Overgrowth, Receiver 2, and even some other games from time to time. All the while talking to you in the chat. So far the streams have been incredibly fun and we can’t wait to hang out with you all on Twitch more going forward!

In the spirit of the holidays, this month we wanted to share some videos made by you, the community!

Overgrowth Action and Funny moments 11 (Ragdolls)

The first is a great Overgrowth montage by PizzaSlice that shows of some of the fun things you can do with ragdolls.

HOW DO GUNS WORK? - Receiver 2

The next video we wanted to share is this amazing Receiver 2 Let’s Play by Bluuu3. Their reactions are priceless and we think you’ll get a kick out of it.

Receiver 2 Speedrun [12:12]

And finally, we can’t recommend this insane Receiver 2 speedrun by MyHatIsAwesome enough. They managed to beat the game in under thirteen minutes!
