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.

Please bear in mind that Holodrive is going to be a Free to Play title, but right now we’ll be charging a small fee so you can help fund the development of the game. We won’t be mad if you wish to wait until we change pricing, tho. :)”

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?

“Holodrive is going to be a Free to Play title on Steam. 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.

So, even though we want everyone to join us as soon as possible, we want to start slow and make the game better before that. That is why we're opening a waitlist for people to join the game. If you don't want to purchase the Early Access Pack, you can wait for a key on the waiting list. You can still buy the Supporter Pack, though: it will give you some awesome in-game goodies that will only be available during this period, as well as an extra key to gift a friend!

With that being said, if you think this is too complicated and you decide to wait until the game is freely available on Steam, we won’t be mad. Feel free to follow our community, you’re awesome anyways :)”

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 Steam Forums.

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 2D multiplayer shooter about exploding robos with crazy weapons and collecting outfits! When Holocorp created Dummy its purpose was to be a companion robot, your fabulous best friend. No one could predict these robots would turn out to be obsessed with exploding each other! Now they compete in special arenas and are equipped with a vast arsenal of guns, an unhealthy dose of unpredictable power-ups and wearing the most diverse accessories available. Nothing can go wrong!

Holodrive is going to be a Free to Play title in the future. You can read more about it down below.

Destroy other players in fast-paced combat

No robot stays materialized long in the arena. Dummys love exploding each other only to be materialized again and continue their spree. Use the map to your advantage and surprise your enemies by teleporting right into the combat or hiding behind anti-bullet barriers!

Equip and collect a vast arsenal of weapons

Holocorp has designed the Dummy to be able to carry up to 7 weapons at the same 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, your robot is made to move fast through the arena, gaining momentum in ramps and using power ups for efficient traversal. Also by using random Power ups, Dummys are able to turn the tide of battle and surprise their opponents with effects like Disarm, Invincibility or Invisibility!

Become the Most Fabulous

Customizing your robot was Holocorp’s original intent. Hat, head, torso, arms, legs, skin and jetpack are fully customizable! Open Holopacks and complete your album with sets like the Shinobi and become a ninja; or mix it with pieces of the Buccaneer’s Loot to become the best pirate-ninja ever!

Unlock anything and everything, just by playing

Holodrive is going to be Free to Play, but that doesn’t mean paywalls behind everything or that those who spend money are going to have advantages. You’ll be able to collect any item by just playing the game! Open Holopacks to get a random item or dematerialize your copies and craft them into stuff you don’t have. There are even super-rare version of items available!
