Capsule Wars is about friendship and fun! Even when you're shooting each other!

Do you want to chill out with your friends and relieve yourself from the competitive burden a bit? Capsule Wars is the answer!

Capsule Wars is a fast and highly mobile Multiplayer FPS game focused on fun and fun only. Enjoy!

If you have any questions, please email me at busy.weasel.games@gmail.com. I would gladly help you.


The game is being released on Early Access for now, so some bugs and errors may occur. If you face any problems, please consider filling out the bug report form by clicking here.

This will be incredibly helpful and will make Capsule Wars a better game.



The game began small, aiming only at small sessions with my own friends, but then a personal video on YouTube reached so much attention and love, that pushed me to improve this game more and more until I finally decided to release it to the public.

But only will and passion don't make a game, unfortunately. Developing a game demands money and time, and a lot of it. To try to mitigate this a bit, I came up with the idea of setting milestones, similar to a Kickstart campaign.

To keep it simple, I'll set some sales goals. When a goal is reached, I'll be developing new things and features for the game, to make it better and better.

IMPORTANT: Until we get to the Steam Milestone, if you donate any value equal to or over the suggested price of $2.99 (or any value if you have downloaded the game before the Warehouse Update), you will receive a game's Steam key when the game gets released on Steam. Think about it, the price will be higher on Steam.

Whether you've donated or not, I want to give you an enormous thank you!

Milestone 01: Thank you so much! The first milestone was reached and the Warehouse update was released because of it. For the next Milestone, I'll be releasing a Skin system and tons of quality of life improvements for the game. Stay tuned to my social media or join the Discord server to keep yourself updated.


To play Capsule Wars is fast and easy:

  1. Download the Capsule Wars.zip file from Itch.io
  2. Consider supporting us by paying any amount that sounds fair to you
  3. Extract all the files to the same directory
  4. Open the Capsule Wars executable file to play
If you are using Linux and is experiencing problems with the audio, please try running the game as a regular user, instead of sudo/super/administrator.



Unfortunately, as we can't afford to have a dedicated server, there are some limitations on how to host a game online. For now, there is nothing we can do about it unless guide you through the steps needed.

With your support, we may be able to overcome this limitation and make it easy for everyone to host a game. For this to happen, a Steam release will be needed, so you will be able to create Lobbies and host matches to play with your steam friends.

To have fun with your friends playing Capsule Wars, someone will need to be hosting a match. The game is playable both in a local network or via the Internet.

For security reasons, you should not give your IP Addresses, local or public, to any person you don't know.



  1. Click the "Host" button
  2. Insert your username
  3. Click "Host"
  4. Done! Give your local IP Address to your friends who will be playing with you, and wait for them to join.



While playing in a local network is pretty straight-forward, hosting a game via the Internet is a bit more troublesome. For now, there are three ways to host a game online: 1. Via port-forward; 2. With a device compatible with UPnP; 3. Use a third-party service to host a virtual local network. Check below the steps needed for both methods:


- With a device compatible with UPnP:

While using this method, a security warn may appear. This is expected, as the application will try to access some settings in your router.
  1. Click the "Host" button
  2. Insert your username
  3. Make sure the UPnP button is checked "ON"
  4. Click the "Host" button

You should be taken to the Lobby in most cases. If you don't, probably your router/modem is either not compatible with UPnP or has it disabled. In this case, try to access your device's settings page and enable UPnP (Universal Plug'n'Play).


- Via port-forward:

In case you don't have a device compatible with UPnP, then your only choice is to port-forward. Although this procedure changes for each device, the steps below should help you:

  1. Open your web browser
  2. Insert your router/modem's IP address into the address bar
  3. Insert the username and password to access your device's configuration
  4. Access your port-forward settings. It is usually located in the Advanced or Local Network sections
  5. Add a new port-forward with the following:
    1. Name: Just an identifier, type anything you want
    2. Port: Type 23571 in both minimum and max port range fields
    3. Protocol: Select UDP
    4. Internal IP Address: Type your local IP Address


- Virtual local network:

One other alternative for you to host a game is using third-party services that simulate a local network over the Internet. Unfortunately, each service works in its own way, making it impossible to make one single tutorial for all of them.

Roughly, here are the steps that you may need to follow in order to set up a virtual local network:

  1. Access the website of one service provider (Such as Hamachi, ZeroTier, etc)
  2. Register and create a new network
  3. Download the software needed to use on your PC
  4. Ask for your friends to download the clients
  5. Give your friends your network ID
    1. You may need to authorize your friend's requests to join the network
  6. Use your virtual local IP to connect in the game's Lobby (ignore the IPs shown in the Lobby)


With one of these steps, you should be able to host a game with no problems. Have a good game and thank you for your understanding.



Join a game is fast and easy, but you will need the Public IP Address of your friend that is hosting the game. You should be playing in no time following the steps below:

  1. Click the "Join" button
  2. Type your username
  3. Type your friend's Public IP (if playing online) or Local IP (if playing locally)
  4. Click "Join"

I have a question,

My buddies and I want to play together but we need some clarification.

Can we connect if we are on a VPN and/or a Proxy?  Because we are having some trouble and can't really connect.

Any advice would be helpful!

(+1)

We are also playing in the local mode.

Thanks for playing the game!

The game should connect normally when using a VPN, the only thing is that you need to ignore the IPs shown in-game, and use the IP shown in your VPN settings/admin. Being your virtual local IP, if playing locally (everyone needs to be under the same VPN), or virtual public IP (never tested this way yet though).

If you have any more questions, I'd gladly help you and your friends, just send an email to busy.weasel.games@gmail.com

Cheers!

Ok I really like this game BUT .... Capsule Wars more like BEAN WARS am I right.

Thanks for being the first to comment!

Haha indeed, they're looking more like beans than capsules right now, but this will change when skins arrive in the game.


Did you play the game with your friends? Please, tell me how it was.

Cheers!

I personally I'm not a gamer so I can not criticize so much. The  modeling is better what I'd ever do.The transition to the sprinting animation is a little janky. The game play I can not say because I don't have friends, Sorry to let you down about your question, but I'll try to shed some light on your game.

Cheers !

No problems at all! Your feedback was already extremely valuable.

Cheers!
