What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“As much work as we did to prepare the game; being a small indie company, we didn't have the resources to make as much content as we would've liked. Likewise, we plan to add more content to the game, and felt like Early Access was the best way to support this process.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until the community and the developers agree that it is a fully fledged game. Final Rush will never be considered "complete" as we will always be adding, improving, and tinkering the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version is planned to have generally more content in every area, including additional levels, weapons, enemies, and character customization options.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We've currently released a massive 2.0 rebuild, and we are now in the process of adding additional content to the game, and polishing existing features.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is a possibility that we will increase the price of the game upon release, depending on the scale of additions and the time of the release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Post on the Steam forums. We'll hear you, and probably respond too. Let us know your thoughts on the game, and what kind of content you want to see added. Many features and suggestions have already been taken to heart and integrated into the game.”

Update Report - Trading Cards

Hello gamers!


Final Rush Badges, Trading Cards, Profile Backgrounds and Emoticons are now available! Several members of the Final Rush community have requested trading card related content, and we’re happy to oblige!

Our resident concept artist worked tirelessly under threat of whip to bring you these fine pieces of art; his blood, sweat and tears (mostly blood) made this all possible.

More updates to follow.

Update Report - 2.08

Hello gamers!


It’s time for a major update, this time we’ve added a new level, and the bones of our new progression system. Along with a few other minor changes

v2.08 Changelog:

  • NEW – Added the new Frost level.
  • NEW – Added the new rank progression system. Players earn points based on their performance each match, which contribute to an increase in rank. Difficulty level, victory or failure, and ending score all contribute. There are 30 ranks in total, with more to be added later on. In the future, you’ll be able to purchase player customization using your experience points.
  • NEW – Added the progress tracker to the main menu and game over screen.
  • NEW – Added 4 new achievements to the game. 1 related to the new level, and 3 related to the new progression system.
  • NEW – Added a credits button to the main menu.
  • NEW – Added a game version indicator to the lower left corner of the main menu.
  • Further adjusted down the sound of earning combat marks.

More updates to come. They will most likely be UI updates – namely adding an improved pause/esc menu, and adding some character customization to the game.

Our creative director has also been hard at work creating the materials for the game’s trading cards and steam backgrounds, so those will likely be added in the next few weeks.

About This Game

*Steam trailer video was recorded prior to the major v2.00 overhaul.

Final Rush is a constantly growing indie cooperative first person shooter, where the player fights against waves of robotic enemies, with up to three of their friends.

Unlike most games, Final Rush dedicates nearly all of it's earnings to the expansion and improvement of the game itself, with new content in the form of levels, gameplay improvements, enemies, and weapons being added as fast as the developers can make them. The purchase of Final Rush will provide you with many months of free content and additions! Final Rush will NEVER sell you DLC, Premium Items, or Pay-To-Win content!

This is the current feature set of Final Rush:
  • Online and LAN cooperative gameplay for 1 - 4 players.
  • 4 Beautiful sci-fi arena levels, filled with killer robots, advanced tech, and polished graphics.
  • The RUSH game mode - where the better you are, the more rewards you get, but the more difficult the enemies become. Fight through 10 waves of hundreds of robots, each bigger than the last, with a variety of robot variations to fight.
  • 8 Weapons - fight your enemies with 8 different weapons, including the advanced experimental AV-Laser. Plus, bash your attackers with melee attacks; blow them to bits with grenades; and of shred them to circuits and servos with the room-clearing high powered ammunition.
  • Upgradable Player - from additional armor and ammo, to better accuracy, the player can purchase
  • Experience Tracker - Play matches and earn experience points based on your performance.

Early Access Review
NOTE: This is for v2.08. I will try to update my review as more updates come out.

Rating at the moment: 8/10
Final Rush is a Sci-fi FPS game, which at the moment, only has Co-op and singleplayer. The game mode at the moment, Rush, has you and up to 3 teammates battling 10 waves of robots. It's like Killing Floor and COD: Zombies. As the rounds progress, you are met with an increasing amount of difficulty and diversity of robots. At the moment, there are 9 weapons to choose from, 8 upgrades, and 4 different levels. The weapons options and upgrades are good. Types of robots and types of weapons and upgrades
EDIT: The guides are a little out-of-date, but it's the only guides there are and they have most of it covered.

- Settings?: Here's screenshots of them:
Audio
Video
Resolution goes from 320 x 200 to your screen's resolution. Anisotropic Filtering goes from 2X to 16X. Anti Aliasing goes from FXAA0 to FXAA3
Controls
You can change them.
GamePlay
For purchasing game before price drop.

- Visuals?: Visually, this game looks amazing.

- Bugs?: There are thankfully not much bugs. I've only seen around 3.

- Singleplayer?: You are able to play by yourself, but so far the only thing to do is play Rush.

- Multiplayer?: At the moment, multiplayer servers aren't going well. There are some dedicated servers, but they are not official, we are lucky to have someone who can make them (which they tell you how to, but I was unsuccessful). When I do play with people, it is quite fun, with the game play and Co-op combined, it was really fun and a little easier. They are working on official servers.

- Gameplay?: The game is fun at times, but it is very difficult. EDIT: There are now difficulty options! You will get surrounded by robots at times, which can get a little annoying. I've only beaten 1 level, as the increasing amounts of robots can be too much. The bright side however, is that if you beat all 4 levels, then you must be quite good at this game. There is only 4 levels however, which can be a little boring, but they have promised more in the future(uploaded a 4th one on 8/27/2014). This is, Early Access, after all. They do have jumping now, but no crouching and ADS isn't the best. With weapons, the crossfire is always there, even when you aim in. It doesn't look the best. EDIT: They have now improved the ADS and have removed the crossfire always being there. ADS is looking better and quite good right now.

- Replayable?: although somewhat repeatable, the addition of achievements, trading cards, and more have made this game more fun replayable (if that's a word).

- Developers?: I'm very happy to say that the developers have delivered this update, and it is looking wonderful. There have been more updates and they continue to deliver what they promised they would. With more graphic options and improved visuals. I like the Path of Development so far, and I do wish them luck. They are active in the forums and they do respond to peoples problems. Sometimes, their response is even funny.

- What is Needed?:
  • More content (guns, upgrades, levels, etc.)
  • Dedicated servers
  • More players
  • The ability to crouch
  • An improved scoreboard
  • Voting system
  • Increase in amount of players allowed in each game (4 right now)
  • # of robots determined by players

- Verdict?: The game is actually quite fun. There is a lack of content and multiplayer could be improved, but they will do that in the future. I recommend getting this game now, unless if you aren't a big fan of Early Access. If none of your friends play, convince them too or just ask people in discussions to play or ask me. People will be eager to play and I hope it will work out for you.

Early Access Review
Who doesn't love shooting some robots!
The game is entertaining and has its moments =D, its even more fun with friends.

You start off with a decision to make, what gun do you want to use to kill the robots? Once you have made your decision, you are thrown into the battlefield to fend off the horde of robots who have only one objective. Annihilate you!.

You got one job, one job soldier. Survive! The robots don't make it easy but nothing is too difficult for a seasoned veteran.

As you endelessly murder the robots, the powers that be give you points that you can use to buy upgrades for your soldier. More ammo, more shield, damage resistance, better guns and lots of other stuff.

Game is in Early Access and has huge potential for improvement and make the game stand apart from its current generation FPS games.

Developers have been active on the forum and they listen to our feedback!

Would play again and again. 10/10.

Early Access Review
This is a great game with a lot of potential, at the moment it is no where near its full release, the developers still have a lot of important features that they need to add. However, despite it not having many features it is still very enjoyable.

EDIT: v2.0 has been released and it makes this game even more enjoyable. It now has an improved interface, more graphical options, multiplayer, and various other add ons. I am curious to see how much better this game can improve. With the developers working hard on this game I can see it becoming a big success in the future. I would recommend this game without hesitation. Roger. Roger.

Early Access Review
While this is early access, I feel like this game has been in development long enough to make a few issues unexcusable. For instance, unless you go into the files in the games folder, you cannot change the key bindings. You can "change" them in the menu, but they are not saved and instantly revert the second you leave the menu. It looks good, but from the limited playing I've done in single player, the gameplay is boring compared to Killing Floor or other similar games. I got this game in an Indie Gala bundle, and I recommend waiting for another bundle or a large sale before buying this if you still are interested. All the good reviews on this game are from months ago talking about how promising this game is, and I'm from the future telling you is hasn't progressed very far.

Early Access Review
As of right now, no, I cannot recommend this. The graphics look great, but as someone who started out playing shooters on the PC, I am dissapointed in the lack of proper movement. There are far too many things in the enviornment to get caught on and the players movement is slow and restricted. Even on normal difficulty, I kept getting caught in corners and assualted by waves of robots, which I cannot seem to kill without extreme difficulty.

Early Access Review
If you like the survival type "wave after wave" games, this one has potential. I like the visuals and the robot comments they make when shot, and the ways their bodies slump around in robot garbage heaps when taking them down. Yes, there is not a whole lot of variety in the enemies and some weapon balancing is in order, but there is a foundation here for a really fun coop experience. So far i just have a few personal gripes that arnt very big fixes but would make things much smoother atm.

-first and most importantly, get real multiplayer going between steam friends ASAP. I have 2 friends myself that ive managed to sell this too, but they won't buy until they have multiplayer other than LAN
-allow custom key bindings (i know it looks like you can, but everytime i set keys differently, they just reset to normal upon leaving menu)
-A "jump" would be nice. Let's face it, when you play fps games nowadays, the ones who "ground" you with no jump feel as if there is something lacking mobilitywise the whole time.

Anyways, i do really enjoy this game and can see the potential like i said.
Keep up the good work!
