Early Access Game

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

Note: This Early Access game may or may not change significantly over the course of development. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you may want to wait until 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.”

1.2.5 Update - Chew On These Battle Maps

June 29th, 2014



As we prep our next big update, we wanted to get out a smaller update that adds 2 more battle maps for you to play around with. These battle maps are available for you to play with in Creative Mode, and demonstrate how various structures when placed around a map can dramatically change the feel for a warzone.

Sci Fi 01 and Sci Fi 02 continue to use assets from our sci fi theme. Feel free to muck around with the map, placing your own enemies, turrets, and objectives.

Enjoy a few more pew pew pews!

Early Access Review
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.

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

Early Access Review
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:

Early Access Review
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.

Early Access Review
This is a review of the first build of the games release on early access and is subject to change:

This game captures something that so few recent games have done, and that's an atmosphere. Even though the enemies look silly, and even though this game is in its early days you really feel their size and numbers, and it really makes them satisfying to kill. This backed up with the destructible terrain that gets obliterated as you shoot hordes of enemies, sharp graphics and animations with a vibrant colour pallete, and the addition of a decent soundtrack make this one of the best new releases I have played in a while. Online co-op will be a blast. Buy this now.
