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 :)”

About This Game

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

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!
