Mercenary Patch (aka version 2.0.5) available

Hi everyone,

Today we're very happy to announce the release of this new patch we hope will make 8DAYS more fun to play.

Gameplay Difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard and Permadeath

For the diehards who claim the game is so easy that they completed it in a couple of hours, and for those who are annoyed because it is so hard, you can now choose the gameplay difficulty which best fit your skills.

  • Easy: In this level you can carry more than one medkit at the same time (see below). This extra shot will allow you to keep alive more time ;)
  • Normal: 8DAYS in its original flavour!
  • Hard: To die means restart at the beginning of the mission! This level is unlocked when your complete the game for the first time in Normal. Recommended for all of you who have already completed the game in its original format and want a new challenge!
  • Permadeath: Ho ho ho! This is a gift to all of our diehard players. Its name says it all: die means start again from the beginning of the game! Beat the game in the Hard level to unlock it. Only the brave should play here! (Disclaimer: We should say that no one in our team was able to complete the game in this level ":))

Keep the Medkits for future use

Every time you pickup a medkit it will be stored in your inventory. In the Easy level you can keep up to 2 medkits!

The best? While playing in co-op you can bring your medkit to your pal if he is running into problems!

New Achievements

We have added three new achievements for you:
  • Kill Bombermann: When you reach the G9 Summit world, kill the suicide bomber before he triggers his bomb to unlock this achievement.
  • No Civils Killed: Are you a responsible mercenary? If so, then complete the game killing no civils!
  • Civil Down!: Collateral damages happens in every conflict, sometimes things get wrong and innocents die due your actions.


We've solved all the annoying bugs reported by you, but we will not bore you with technical details ;)

Happy weekend and enjoy 8DAYS!

“If you’re in the mood for a side-scrolling shmup, 8DAYS is a challenging and satisfying experience. Defeating each area rewards you with a feeling of accomplishment — earning your wins little by little and progressing you to a new challenge.”
8.5 – Squackle

“Between a decently-high level of replayability, local co-op functionality, and arcade-style gameplay, 8DAYS is great for those looking for an action-packed adventure in the next game that they play.”
4/5 – Hey Poor Player

“8Days is a game bursting with personality, and the developers do a good job of planting seeds from one stage to the next.”

About This Game

8DAYS: Peace is our business
The world has been dominated by dark forces since the beginning of human history. Known as the Masters of Mankind by those directly under their control, these dark forces will use any means necessary to protect their own interests -- including starting wars. In 8DAYS the mercenary team G.O.D. (Gold, Oil, and Diamonds, Inc) and the 8DAYS Magazine are two modern instruments used to control the masses. G.O.D. is primarily a peacekeeping force and 8DAYS ensures the bias of public opinion.

Key Features:
Players will travel around the world in five missions to resolve erupting dangerous conflicts.
High replay value: each mission allows players to solve levels in different ways every time they play.
Adaptive enemies’ intelligence makes each gameplay different.
Hidden characters to find and secrets to uncover!
Single Player and local Cooperative Mode for 2 players.
Compatible input controls: keyboard plus mouse or gamepad.
Original soundtrack featuring 31 heart pumping theme tunes.

About the characters:
In 8DAYS players take on the role of Lola and Mike, two of G.O.D.’s expendable mercenaries.

Mike “Ghost” Doe (40 years old) was born in the wild in Australia, where anything and evrything can kill you. He soon became an expert in learning how to survive. His face was burnt in an accident during his childhood.
He has worked on undercovered operations and was declared missing in action during the Second Gulf War. Recent intelligence information reports he took part in the Russian forces during the Moscow theatre hostage crisis in 2002.

Lola “Wasp” Cruz (24 years old) was born in the mountains of Chiapas, her mentor was Subcomandante Juanes. She’s survived the paramilitary ambush in 2013 where her mentor died. Since then she has stopped at nothing to find the people responsible who cowardly killed her mentor.
