What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are making Gang Beasts available through Steam Early Access to fund development of the full game and build a community that is directly involved in informing and supporting the production of the game.”

How long will this game be in Early Access?

“We have not set a release date for the full version of Gang Beasts, we plan to make new content, stages, character body shapes and sizes, and game modes for each Early Access release, we will review significant updates and plan for a specific full release date when the number of stages, character types, game modes, character customisations, and other content to be included in the game is finished.”

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

“The full game will play similarly to the Early Access versions but with a full character customisation system, new stages and environments, additional character body shapes and sizes, a single player and 2 to 4 player co-op story mode (with multistage sub-boss and end boss fights), complex AI enemies, numerous game and tournament modes, and various mini-games to play.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current Early Access version of the game is a local multiplayer game with limited support for solo play (a full single player and 2 to 4 player co-op story mode is planned), there are 8 playable stages in the current version with support for 2 - 8 player gang fights.”

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

“The Early Access price is the same price we plan for the full game (excluding discounts and promotions).”

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

“We want the Early Access community to inform the development of the game, specifically we want to have ongoing dialogues with the community about the game to help us identify and prioritise the key features, content, and modifications that need to be added or made and to make sure Gang Beasts as fun as it can be.”

“I once had a persistent pugilist clutching my eyeball as she hung over the edge of a fatal drop, refusing to relinquish the ocular grip and admit defeat.”

About the Game

Gang Beasts is a silly local multiplayer party game with surly gelatinous characters, brutal mêlée fight sequences, and absurdly hazardous environments.

Watch in horror and amusement as gangs of floppy antagonists grab, push, pull, and shove their enemies from permanently suspended window-cleaning scaffolds, unattended ferris wheels, and commercial haulage trucks.

Gasp with shock and delight at the spectacle of stupidly pugnacious thugs punching, kicking, and throwing their foes into unspecified hazardous machinery, flaming incinerator pits, and the paths of moving trains.

Early Access Review
Gang Beasts is one the best local multiplayer experiences available, no question. I have played this countless hours leading up to this Early Access release and I am thorougly excited about the new features and goofiness that awaits.

There is something incredibly appealing about watching plasticine-looking somewhat drunk people punch each other in the face and throw each other into dangerous situations.

If you're having some friends over for a gathering, grab some controllers and play this gem. I have not heard this much screaming since the original Smash Brothers.

We will continue to make this our end of week game in our studio, good job Boneloaf. All the best. Looking forward to every moment that Gang Beasts has to offer.

*EDIT To clarify my 'countless hours' into the game. There has been an earlier copy available for months that I have been playing obsessively with work mates and friends. The Steam copy has lots of new features and tweaks that make it far superior to the old 0.0.1 - 0.0.3 version that were previously available.

Early Access Review
I heard about this game two days ago. That night I downloaded it. Today I bought it and had some friends over. It is hands down one of the best party/local multiplayer games I have ever played. We played for three hours straight, and we only stopped because they had to leave.

Highly recommended.

While people are complaining about the local only and such, I'm absolutely loving the local play. Being a college student with friends who happen to have Xbox controllers and such lying around, this game is loads of fun!

THIS IS AN EARLY ACCESS REVIEW. The contents of this review will change over time as the devs update the game.

Gang beasts is a fantastic game. It really is. I've played it with many a friend or family member. The old version, that is.

The new version does not support remapping of controls. I can't play with more than one person because my usb controller is not supported. Even with an external program to make my controller look like an XInput controller, gang beasts still did not regognize it. On top of this, all the maps with enemy AI have been removed, meaning the only possible way to actually fight anyone at all is with a contoller supported by InControl, which is a little borderline for a PC only game. This review is written about an early access version of the game, and the devs are already working on a way to remap controls, but I would encourage all those who don't have the right controllers considering this game to hold out until a later date, or at least until the update for control remapping comes out, and when it does, I will write a new positive review.

Remember, It's not that I don't like the game, in fact I love the game, but it's not in a state where it can be played to it's full extent without certain controllers.
