GTOGG is very proud to announce that GamePsy, its self-developed service aimed primarily at indie game developers, has finally reached a crucial milestone. To elaborate: we have finished working on GamePsy’s playable tech demo, a simple, third-person multiplayer spaceship shooter taking place in our very own solar system. The primary purpose of the demo is to provide a demonstration of the GamePsy framework’s capabilities.

Don’t forget to bring some friends along for the full-fledged multiplayer shooter experience! The demo can be accessed via the GTOGG Launcher following a very quick registration process: download here.

And remember: the real fun starts at 1000 km/h!

Some background information and technical details for developers:

GamePsy is a multiplayer framework that allows for both server-client and peer-to-peer game modes to be implemented. It also provides all basic matchmaking and data synchronization functionalities.

For the sake of speed and security, it was written in native C; it also comes with protocol-level encryption and has a .NET extension (the documentation of which is available at to be as widely accessible as possible. Naturally, the protocol itself is also self-developed: it has a smaller overhead compared to the protocols used by Steam or Unreal, and offers protection against network-based cheats as well.

If you kindly decide to give our service a try, we will also provide the required infrastructure for it; specifically, this means the server itself, but we can implement all the necessary higher-level communication models as well (such as the models needed for synchronization, and the prediction system).

The client at the moment only has a Windows-based build, but we do plan to eventually branch out and make it compatible with additional platforms as well.

Furthermore, we are happily available to provide virtual demonstrations – if you’re interested, don’t hesitate to contact us via our Discord server!
