Version 1.1 released

After almost three years of silence Seven Shapes Studios has now released a working version of Killing Engine with a new soundtrack, semi-intelligent bots, new level, new equipment, and a quantity of other changes.


Seven Shapes Studios will now continue working with a new project but still keep an eye on the re-opened Killing-Engine.com forums if players encounter issues while playing the game. Mappers can also post their creations on the very same forum so that others may enjoy them as well.

Killing Engine v1.1 in development

About two years ago we in Seven Shapes Studios abandoned the development of Killing Engine and left the game in such a condition that no one could play it even though mechanically the game was quite playable. One could say that the development team was quite exhausted with bug hunting and setback after another and then we just felt like throwing in the towel.


Now the dev team is back on track and we're doing everything we can trying to bring out a working version of Killing Engine that anyone can play with friends, strangers, or even bots. We also try to make sure that the Level Editor works properly and that any aspiring level designers can hone their skills with our little software.


Killing Engine v1.1 is scheduled to be released 6th of December 2012.

Killing Engine for Linux discontinued

Unfortunately there is no way we can continue developing the Linux version of Killing Engine. Since we only have one programmer in our team we've decided to concentrate that resource in developing the Windows version. If we happen to find some more programmers to join our team that might allow us to continue the work with the Linux version. Currenty it requires too much work to make it happen.

Beta version 0.92 released

We've released propably the final beta version of Killing Engine today. The beta 0.92 doesn't include any major feature updates but rather we have fixed many bugs and improved the functionality of the already existing features.


You can download the Beta 0.92 from the Downloads page.

12 Dec 2009, 07:37

Version 1.0 delayed

We have decided to work on the Killing Engine version 1.0 a little bit more. The game is somewhat stable and works mostly the way we like but we don't see any point in releasing an almost ready game.


This means two things. Firstly we're going to release another beta version (0.92) in Monday December 14th. Secondly the development of the game propably requires yet another month so the estimated release day will be January 25th 2010. We're sorry for the delay but also think that this move is really necessary.
