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:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is at the core of our studio. Holodrive has been playable since the second month of development by anyone who wanted an invitation, and open since the 10th month to everyone with a browser and internet connection. We’ve been building a community of passionate players that have been helping us build the game since before Steam ever had the Early Access program.

Check out this playlist (organized by date) and see how the game has evolved since the first prototype

We believe Holodrive’s future lies with its community and because of that we’ve been very open as we develop the game. Our players have helped us balance weapons, find bugs, create levels and we’ve even implemented (and removed) some features because of their feedback! We want to keep doing this, we want people to collaborate with us in order to make a game that everyone enjoys to play with their friends.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our development process is highly iterative and we do like taking time in order to do the best we can, because of that it's really hard to say for how long the game will be in Early Access. Our goal is to have the final version ready by the end of this year (2016), keep in mind this schedule could change and if it does we’ll talk about why it happened with everyone.”

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

“We’ve been working super hard for over 2 years and we still have ways to go. We want the full version to feature more unique game modes, more maps, more weapons, more customization sets, Ranked mode, Party system, a better integration with the steam platform (Cards, Trading, etc…), more languages (russian, french, german, etc…). There are also a bunch of current features that will get a facelift like the current Main Menu UI and many of the maps' environment art.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, we update it with new builds very often and you can follow us on social networks and twitch to see when a new update is coming. If you find any bugs, glitches or exploits please report them to us using any communication channel and we’ll try to fix it as soon as possible!”

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

“We believe free-to-play is the way to go for this kind of multiplayer game, since every new player adds value to the game. Our idea is to make a fair game where everyone can get anything by putting time into playing.

Right now during early access we are looking for players who wish to make a difference by helping us develop the game.”

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

“Right now we already have a community involved in the development process, but we want everyone to be in the same page as we migrate to our Official Discord

We’ll be doing Twitch Streams, we usually post teasers and answer your questions on our Twitter. Wanna see what we’re doing, known bugs, vote on features and check if we’re being lazy? We have an open Trello! In the game there’s also a Feedback button that you can send a message directly to the entire team’s e-mail (so be nice to us).

The game will be constantly updated with new features and bugfixes and you’ll always be able to contact us and tell us what you think :)”

Changes are coming! Read here ;)

Hey everyone!

We’re here today to talk to you about some changes that we’re planning for Holodrive, these changes are not something minor like adding a new weapon or power-ups, but are major changes that may shake the very core of how the game is played.

We have been developing this game for quite a while and everyone that has been following us knows that we’re pretty open when it comes to the development of the game. We love talking to you guys and gathering feedback, we make videos of prototypes that we’re developing and we were never shy about changing or removing features from the game.

Learning and evolving is part of the process and the team has been thinking a lot on many of your feedbacks in regards to weapons and gameplay. Feedbacks that range from the game being very random because of power-ups, to very frustrating because of Health Pickups. Not only that but we thought a lot about Holodrive’s core mechanic: of having 7 weapons, a basic weapon, having weapon pickups on the map and all that. We decided that we need to be better, we need to evolve Holodrive’s gameplay to be something more engaging and more deep, we want everyone to be able to pick up the game and play but realize that there’s more depth to it than it seems.

On this post we’re going to outline the Core Mechanics that we feel are in need of a second look, we won’t get into specifics now. We will do that in future posts.

These are the mechanics that we’re considering changes:

- 7 Weapons Loadout
- Basic Weapon
- Weapons Categories
- Pickups in the map
- Health pickups
- Ammo system

The systems outlined above could see changes that could range from major to minor (we could also not change a system at all), but the end result should be a vastly different game than what you guys play today.

So you may be asking when will the changes come? Well, they are still in prototype phase so we don’t have any date for you yet. We have lots of stuff to test, and we want your help in doing it! As of right now we’ll be creating a special Community Role called “Super Tester". These special players will receive access to every change before anyone else in order to help us test them before they are officially unveiled to the rest of the community!

Our first test is going to be tomorrow!

Wanna become a super tester? Join our discord @ Discord.gg/Holodrive and talk to the Devs or Mods! We have open spots ;)

Best Regards,

BitCake Studio Dev Team

About This Game

Holodrive is a super fast-paced collectable 2D multiplayer shooter. Create your robot, customize it and jetpack your way to victory!

Chat with the community on our Discord! You may also find some devs there ;)

When Holocorp created the 'Dummys' their main purpose was to be companion robots - mans new best friend. No one could predict these robots would turn out to be obsessed with blowing each other up... in style! Now, dressed to impress and equipped with a vast arsenal of guns and an unhealthy dose of unpredictable power-ups, they compete in special arenas to see who's best. What could go wrong?

Non-Stop Multiplayer Action

The action is fast and strategic and explosions are rife! You'll learn to love blowing each other up, but when you do you'll materialized quickly to continue your shooting spree. Use the map to your advantage and surprise your enemies by teleporting right into the combat or hiding behind anti-bullet barriers!

Collect a vast arsenal of weapons

Carry up to 7 weapons at a time. Pick up weapons and ammo as you platform through the levels or grab weapons from enemies you kill. Get different weapons by opening packs, craft them or equip your free weapon that’s available on rotation every 3 days!

Mobility, Versatility, Unpredictability

Every Dummy is equipped with a jetpack so you can move with great speed through the arena. Fast gameplay is accentuated with the use of ramps and strategically placed power ups that can turn the tide of battle with an element of surprise at any time.

Customize and Show off your Stylish Self

Hat, head, torso, arms, legs, skin and jetpack are fully customizable! Open Holopacks and compete on style with complete sets like the Shinobi or Ninja, OR mix and match to make a brave and bold fashion statement!

Jump in - It's Free to Play, now with Cocoball!

Holodrive is free to play, but it's a level playing field even if you DON'T spend money. You’ll be able to collect any combat item by just playing the game! Compete in deathmatch or jump in one of 3 team-based game modes including the new Cocoball for a cluckin good time!
