Game overview:

Operation: Desert City is a simple FPP shooter done in Unreal Engine 4. It was created solely for the purpose of learning Unreal Engine 4.

When I started, I had only the very basic knowledge of how the engine works (watched/completed only few tutorials for beginners). After slightly over a month of almost non-stop reading/watching tutorials and trying things out in the editor I ended up with the game you see in front of you. It's nothing super fancy, but I think it's pretty OK for something done by a complete noob, who never done anything in the UE4 or other engine of similar magnitude.

If You Feel Like You Are Struggling With The UE4 Engine, Then I Reccomend Learning Unity. Unity Can Produce Much Similar Graphics and Is Definitely Easy To Use. Sick Game Though!


this game has a lot of potential if created into a full game :D

Thanks! Glad you liked it! :)


Check out my quick Let's Play. I like the game, look forward to seeing some development. Looks and plays great for someone only learning UE4

Nice, I like it! :D

Sorry for that slightly confusing "LVL 3" gates...

Thanks! No problem haha

(Edited 1 time)

I would be lying if I said this game was the first time I had to wait for the loading screen... to stop... loading... I Also ran it last night and kept it on and its still fucking loading to this very day. Not Fucking Lagging >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Looking Pretty.

Li-nux Li-nux Li-nux! xD


Nice work! You have incredible potential!


make a sequel!


Can you please make an Linux version? Thanks


you'll make a sequel

please make a sequel !

When you compare it to other games, it looks very well done! You could put this on steam and noone would guess it's an indie game! Il see if its possible for me to make a video about this one, this game is too good ;D


looks cool

Is this 32 bit or 64 bit?

64 bit

I Was Trying To Download The Game But It Was A Compressed File. Is There A Way To Change This Problem?

Not really. If I don't compress it, the download file will be over twice as big. Plus, the game consist multiple files, uploading each one of them separately will be too much of a pain in the ass. Packing them into one zip/rar file is the only reasonable thing to do.

But all those things aside, I don't really understand why is it a problem? What's so bad about compressed files?


Hey there, I suggest using https://itch.io/docs/butler/ to upload your game! With it, you can upload as much as 32GB.

It'll let you push patches by uploading only what's changed, and it'll let your players use keep the game up-to-date via https://itch.io/app easily.

We have a solid CDN as of a few days ago, so all those mirrors shouldn't be needed :)


Thanks! It actually works perfectly :)

I have a question, though. Why is there such a big difference in file size limit between normal upload and the butler upload?


Good to hear! I just posted a FAQ that I hope will answer that last question :)

download links both dont work

yo all the links are dead i was trying make gameplay video of this game update me and i will :)

Check the dropbox mirrors above. All 3 should work at this moment :

Thought you should know, someone on Steam has posted Operation Desert City as their concept game.


Thank you. I will try to deal with it :)

32 bit?

Please make it for apple! This game is really good.


Some Suggestions

  • Customizable Controls
  • Default Key = Shift
  • Nerf the Charged Shot(Use more energy, lower radius)
  • Add Flashlight/Nightvision

i cant seem to get the download to start, from either mirror. which really sucks, because this looks amazing. its hard to believe something looking this great is an itch.io freebie.


Not sure why it's not working, was perfectly fine last time I have checked. Anyway, I have added 2 new download options (copy their name/url and paste it in your browser to download directly from dropbox)

Looking forward to your future games.
