The main focus of CPGN
The gaming industry has no shortage of games, but what they are short on, is ideas. And it also feels like splitscreen multiplayer has been largely ignored over the years.

I know I'm not the only 1 who'd rather compete with friends and family rather than strangers on the net. This is CPGN at it's core. That social interaction between friends in the same room, eating, drinking, laughing, and yelling at each other is something you can't replace with an internet connection.

There will be net games too, though. Read on.

 

CPGN unique features

No "faked" (bullets from center screen instantly scanning a hit onto players) gun mechanics, randomly generated maps, 1:1 button to action gameplay, all gear at all times.

 

Randomly Generated Maps
Since the core of CPGN is competition, it would only make sense that RGMs are the way to go. This keeps players from memorizing maps to their advantage, and instead, forces them to think on their feet, and engage other players armed only with skill and awareness.

If however you'd like to play a RGM again later, just press the "add to favorites" button, or write down the code it gives you to share with friends.

Later support will add a map editor.

Net Games
Couch VS Couch: You and 3 of your friends on 1 screen, against another 4 on theirs. Buddy Battles: You and a friend (online co-op) against 3 other teams of 2. Team work!
Lone Wolf: Just you, full screen, on any game mode, with 7 other players.

 

Communication
During the main event of splitscreen multiplayer, communication is easy. Turn to your friend, and scream at them. Slap them if you have to.

Net games however, will have 2 different kinds of voice chatting.

1, is team chat. Hold a button and speak to your team as if they're wearing an ear piece. Your whole team hears you at full volume.

2, is enemy chat. Hold a button and speak to everyone connected, except the source of the sound comes directly from your character and is limited by distance.

I always thought it was weird that in most shooters, you'd throw a grenade for example, and hear your character yell "grenade" at them, when it could just as easily been you, yelling whatever you want.

A faint "kiss my ass!" echoes from a far.

 

Vote System
After you select your profile, you're brought to the game selection screen to vote in a game mode or play style.

Players with the lowest skill rating always get their vote counted as 2. Votes also add up over time until that game gets voted in, which then resets it to zero.

This will ensure that those who aren't as skilled are still a relevant part of the game, and ultimately the night. Not everyone's a pro, and some people don't care about winning. They just want to have fun.

 

Skill System
The skill system keeps track of your performance and averages it from round to round. This allows for deeper challenge for those just starting out and those defending their rank.

This means that no one stays a winner for simply putting more time in. That's not skill. If you're a better player, it'll show immediately, both in-game and on the scoreboard.

 

No DLC?!
Whenever new content is created for CPGN, everyone gets it. Not as an add-on, but as an upgrade, for free, for everyone.

From what I've seen, DLC degrades most games by splitting the players away from those who bought DLC and those who didn't, until it's supporting community is so fragmented that it dies off.

I'd rather have a game that reaches perfection as a complete package, than make money from it's death.

Yes, CPGN will be more of a service that gets better and better over time, but there will be no bloating due to a pruning system based off community feedback. Basically, anything that sucks will be removed.

 

So you've read all about it
Behind all of these awesome features, the game is really just an elaborate tool for beating the crap out of your friends and family. It's 1 of my fondest memories growing up, and I think the same is true for a lot of gamers.

So help me, help you, all of us, reconnect with those special times and create many more with a game that's very core is based around the love of gaming and bringing people together, in 1 awesome package. Couch Party Game Night!
