Synaptic Drive

A 3D online competitive shooting game set in the distant future, somewhere in the far reaches of space.

Utilize three types of weapons—gun, wire, and tracker—while chasing down and damaging your opponent in one-on-one high-speed arena battles. With the tagline, “Bring blood to cyberspace,” this is a game set in a cyber world that tests the limits of your reflexes in battle and where you will feel the constant rush of blood in your veins.

Endless Combinations of Bodies, Weapons, Arenas, and More

There are over 10 body types—which determine character appearance, durability, and so on—over 100 weapon types (guns, etc.), and various arenas that act as battle stages. The combinations of these will greatly influence your strategy and the outcome of battle. This is a simple, yet highly replayable game.


  • Game Director: Kouji Kenjou
