Receiver is a game by Wolfire Games that was created for the “…7-day FPS challenge to explore gun handling mechanics, randomized levels, and unordered storytelling.” Most First Person Shooters, and video games in general, simplify and automate the process of loading and operating a firearm to make the experience more enjoyable for the player. Receiver, on the other hand, randomly assigns the player one of three handguns, and requires they be treated exactly like they would in real life: players have to manipulate the safety, pull back the slide to check if there’s a round in the chamber, and even have to check the magazine to see their round count.
