Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

“Spark Rising Early Access is your chance to play Spark Rising while in a wee infant state so that you can help us raise this baby into a grand game one day. Which pretty much means that much of the game in its current form is in flux, and is very raw. The final form could change dramatically based on your feedback, your care, your love, and your rants. This is a work in progress and therefore contains all sorts of wonky bugs, which could be fun to screw around with, or turn you into a madman. Or woman. Whichever you prefer.

So what exactly can you expect from an early access game? Pretty much this:
  • Bugs that make you go hmmm.....
  • Features yet to be added
  • Full features that may get axed because they sucked
  • Save files that will eventually be wiped
  • Missing or unclear objectives
  • Changing control schemes as we optimize
  • Graphics and performance that has yet to be optimized

If you are the sort of trend setting gamer that loves the behind the scenes look at what we are creating, warts and all, and loves the idea of shaping this game from a baby to an adult, then this early access is for you. But if the thought of this sort of thing makes you want to smack a baby, we suggest that parenting ain't quite for you. Better you wait to play a more stable game, and wait until we officially launch the game.

Currently the game is expected to stay in early access form for at least the next 8 months. Based on how things progress, we either continue to build the game in early access form or officially launch. Either way our plan is to continue to add features to the game for some time to come.

For early backers of our game before we launched on Steam, if you prefer a Mac version you will get it. For the launch on Steam, we will only sell the PC version at this stage. The Mac version will come a few months afterwards.”

Do NOT, I repeat, do NOT touch this game. While they game had a good concept it has go nowhere extremely fast. The devs don't seem to do much for it, and the main creator seems to love going on vacations more than working on the game.
As an early access game it lacks any real play-ability, I have followed this game since the beginning and nothing of value has been added. the screenshots above on spoofed and none o it was actually what it seems, at first glace it seems like a game with depths, but animation is terrible, gameplay is about a flash game worth of content and nothing is being worked on.

To me it would feel the devs just don't care enough about this game and seem to just avoid it as I would recommend you should.

This game is a bundle of fun and can't wait for co-op. I hate to compare it to minecraft (voxel game) but that is the game everyone knows. It's more or less a battle minecraft with guns and the feeling you are in a mech. It's really fast-pased and looks like it has great promise. Now as I'm sure you know it's an early access so you'll see bugs here and there but they are on track for a great game. Dev gave me(and others) an early copy to help get these bugs out but i've had fun playing it while beta testing it as well.

My Rating 6/10 but this will change as more get added (Again it is in early access and they never to a full rating right away due to lack of features and content.

Spark Rising has made a huge amount of progress since I first got involved in the kickstarter around october. Offering a pair of well refined game modes. One requiring you to take back control of a military base and defend it against an invading Titan with it's hordes of voxel minions. Along with a more parkour target shooting map to challenge your mastery of the games core movement/jumping/aiming mechanics.

Obviously as an early access or alpha game there are several areas that need to be fleshed out yet. Given Wicked Loot's fast iterative development process to date, you can expect to see features added quickly in very refined form. Along with a very direct line to the players. Through active test community, developer livestreams, etc.

You can get a pretty good idea of the gameplay through the development videos in the community hub. Alternatively you can check out the early access preview I put together on youtube:

These review was made at 8/5/2014

At these time i can see the game has a long way to go.. it is fun and i trust the Dev to take it all the way to the end seeing how it was on the Pre-alpha before.. and how its now and how much it moves

If any one will ask me what these is like il say its like Harkawn and Ace Of Spades combine

The game play right now dose have many bugs... but its fair for a game in its stage.. the updates come on a fair time, and give good change to the game
The Dev also seem to be listing to the community and Gamers of the game on what will happen next that is really awesome as you can really feel the work that come with the Dev and the gamers community of these game

If you you looking for a game to play right now il not recommend it just yet...

If you you looking for a game to play some time soon that and to support i do recommend these game

Feel free to ask any thing in the comments

Sometimes just being able to build everything my imagination can create isnt enough, Sometimes I need to destroy. Sometimes I need to find something beautiful someone else has made, and just blow it to smithereens. Sometimes I need to build an army from scratch and lead them in an unquestionable rout of the enemies forces. Sometimes I need all the awesomness that Spark Rising promises. This game is off to a great start so far so here is to hoping it continues to evolve and deliver on the promises it has made.

- Unique setting/graphics
- Decent aiming and movement


- In early access for a long time
- Meh enemies
- Boring to play alone
- Nothing much to accomplish
- No multiplayer
- No minimap, descriptions or any real tutorial that help you understand the game. For example, you might be told: to "Destroy 4 consoles", but you have to find the consoles yourself in a big level and have no indication of where to go. Another example would be that right after you complete an objective such as "Destroy 4 consoles", you get told to "Exit level and find waypoint" - You actually have to go search even more while fighting against noob AIs that give no challenge.

Wouldn't recommend right now.

I gave it a shot and was never this disappointed..
Despite the pretty colours and "potential", after a year the game still has a massive lack of content and progress, not to mention, the project is basically abandoned

Please don't bother buying the game.

What a shame. When I first played this game like a year ago, there was basically no content, but I didn't mind since I got it from a game bundle. It handled pretty well, was still pretty entertaining to run around in. Figured I'd give it some time and check back on it. Guess the game didn't get enough attention and support, so the devs gave up on it.

Steam really should take down games that don't get updated for massive spans of time.

Still, for 2 bucks, I guess it's worth it if you're into running around shooting stuff with no purpose.

I bought this game for the cheap price tag before steam refunds were a thing. I'd have refunded my two dollars if it had been, because this game is not what it tries to sell itself to be. The arenas right now are these tiny areas.. where there's a never ending spawn of boxy bad guys that come in. Destructable terrain? Yes, it's there---doesn't really mean much because the map is so small that you hardly invest any feelings on the destruction. "Dynamically changing arena"? Hardly. It's a small place that's got you cramped in, and hiding between the sorta-space-ish looking structures while you try to get your shots in. I'd call it unfinished, but it's not even that... it's not even something you could call a game right now as there's no point to anything you're doing in it.

Edit: Also, don't trust that lying trailer. You can't build jack-crap in this game "yet", as if it'll ever be implemented.

Unless you DON'T want to play a game that supposed to look EXACTLY like the trailer and videos they show for this... Don't get it...

They have everything mixed with mario world crap, as I am not very fond of it. No tutorial, no directions, no clear passage ways, it still needs A LOT of work on this game.

I think the creators are getting lazy, changing their minds too soon, etc.

I love the game with the enemies like they showed and discribed in the trailer/videos... Zombies, dinosaurs, monkies, robots, flying robots, GIANT robots...

Then... they... get... these... f*%$#ing things called........die guys... die guys = Shyguys... REALLY!? REALLY creators? Then they throw in there pokiemon, and some other random ♥♥♥♥...

This whole thing has gone to hell... IT was more beautufil when it started, with all the robots. Ever since they added mario themed stuff,... it just lost it's touch quickly for me...

Do yourself a favor and show these creators how much of a fool they are, and DON"T donate ANY money to them.

I'm already planning to contact my credit card company, or go to steam and get my money back... It's really, really, really, sad for this game to go SO wrong... -_-
