We’ve been showing you the history of DieselStormer’s development for the last two weeks.
Now we’d like to see what you can do: Fanart, Videos, Papercraft, Cosplay, DieselStormers Demake - Everything counts! Post your stuff on our Facebook page until Monday, Sept. 15th, 19.00 GMT and have a chance to win an original DieselStormers t-shirt and a Black Forest Games hoodie!
The winner will be chosen by our handsome artists.
With the “High Octane”-Update (Release: September 26th) you will be able to unlock perks for your Diesel Knights! These perks are permanent advantages that can be purchased with crafting components.
Do you like to hit and run? There are perks that boost your firepower if you don’t shoot all the time, and others that boost your evasive capabilities.
Do you prefer to charge into battle? We have perks that boost your firepower as long as you keep moving or loot dead enemies, and allow you to take more hits.
Do you prefer a subtler approach? Spawn repair kits and extra Arc Energy, or trigger your weapon’s special abilities more often!
Perks stay with you no matter what weapon (and later: armor) you wear. Whenever you choose to upgrade your Diesel Knight with a new perk, you will be offered a random selection to pick from. You can also re-roll already unlocked perks for a lower cost, and slowly craft your knight to a specific build.
Starting today we’ll show you images of earlier versions of DieselStörmers to give you an impression of how the project developed over time!

As announced the Firestorm Update will hit DieselStormers on August 22nd.
What will be main theme of the update we hear you asking?
It will be all about guns, guns and more guns!
Currently you can customize your weapons resulting in different shoot patterns, projectile types, precision, rate of fire and range. This is the core idea and it works, however we have so much more add and polish. With the Firestorm update, we aim to take a big step forwards towards this goal.
Next week you will get the complete details of the update, so only few days left to tell us what YOU want.
