Just nine months after the game launched and its 30-day peak was 20 players.

Lemnis Gate is a fantastic indie first-person hero shooter that pits players against each other in 4D matches that require them to use time to win their battles. It’s cerebral and unique, but it doesn’t seem to have managed to retain a player base, as its Steam numbers show a current monthly average of just 4.1 players.
Luckily, those low numbers shouldn’t bother Lemnis Gate too much, as most games are 1v1 or 2v2, but it’s still sad to see such an interesting game see such a drop in players since launch.
TheGamer’s Eric Switzer noted in his review that the game had a few teething issues at launch, like limited crossplay features and a lack of gameplay tightness, but overall it was still fun even when you lost or made mistakes, which is a badge of honor that few FPS games can claim.
A December update added a new map and increased mobility for all agents, but that doesn’t seem to have brought players back into the game. another sci-fi shooter seemed to take off when Lemnis Gate launched, maybe it was just a case of bad luck.
If this is your first time hearing about the game, or if you played it at launch and haven’t since, now seems like a great time to revisit. The developer, Ratloop Games, is hosting a tournament for the game on April 3.
