Description

VitalSign is an online-only shooter with four playing modes: Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and Rounded base which is basically Team Deathmatch without respawning. Before every round the player chooses one weapon in every weapon category: melee, primary, secondary and special. The betting system works with so-called life-points: Before every match the players can bet a free amount of life-points and the winning team gets them all. These points can also be used to buy better weapons or other skins. The game also uses a rank system where experience points get rewarded for kills. A high rank is needed to unlock all 16 maps when opening an own server.

In theory the game is free to play after purchasing it - if the player has a lot of patience or is very good at the game. Every player gets a certain amount of the already-mentioned life-points when he registers his account but every match costs one of them whether the player bets or not. There are five ways to receive life-points:
  • The match winner gets his point back
  • Winning points with bets
  • Waiting (every player receives a certain amount of points per day)
  • Playing training rounds where he shoots teddy bears and bunnies
  • Buying them with real money
