Online Shooter Lemnis Gate Will End Service This Summer

The developer Ratloop Games Canada and publisher Frontier Foundry have announced that Lemnis Gate will be shutting down after two years of service. The turn-based time-looping shooter will not be available to purchase after April 11 and will be removed from storefronts across all platforms on July 11.

The Canada-based developer thanked the community who supported Lemnis Gate since its release in November 2021. While the title wanted to bring an "innovative twist to the FPS genre," it never gained solid traction in its two years of service. According to the Steam Charts data, the online shooter started its journey with a mere 362 players and never managed to boost its retention performance on Valve's storefront. It also failed to meet the developers' and the publishers' expectations on other platforms.

"From April 11, 2023, Lemnis Gate will be removed from sale on all platforms. However, we will be keeping the multiplayer servers online until July 11," reads the developer's statement. Those who want to bid farewell to the sci-fi shooter will get to join the multiplayer servers for a while after the game is removed from stores. Console players, on the other hand, "will still be able to access local multiplayer and training modes, however, PC players will be unable to play beyond that point."

Lemnis Gate also found its way to Xbox Game Pass back in 2021, and despite getting a 'Very Positive' rating on Steam and an average score of 7.5 on Metacritic, Ratloop Games' sci-fi shooter couldn't survive in the multiplayer shooter landscape. The developer rolled out the last update back in December 2021 and introduced a new map and game mode, yet it wasn't enough for Lemnis Gate to keep the players in the loop as well.

That being said, Lemnis Gate does deserve some appreciation thanks to the innovative time-loop formula that allowed players to utilize various tactics and strategies. While it offered a rich and rewarding experience thanks to its gameplay design choices, the title also probably yielded a steep learning curve for those who prefer a shorter FPS action.

If you enjoy complex gameplay formulas where you can create different combat scenarios, it might be worth giving Lemnis Gate a chance before it joins the graveyard of multiplayer games like Marvel's Avengers or Ubisoft's never-seen Project Q and many, many others.
