What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to gain honest feedback from users, and let the players shape development while we work on the final version. We plan to use the early access income to hire extra help and work on the features not yet planned when we budgeted the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“This depends on implementations we will add after receiving players’ feedback. We believe this process will take 5 to 8 months.”

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

“Here is our plan for the early access months to come:

  • new levels and worlds first, to extend the content of the game further, then expand the variety of weapons and deepen the storyline.
  • we are thinking about adding online leaderboards and an arena mode, but we want to check with players if there is a demand for it,
  • we are opened to additional features suggested by the community. We hope you’ll amaze us!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We are in late beta mode and the game is more than enjoyable:

  • single player or 2 players local co-op modes,
  • 9 levels divided in 3 worlds, with a boss and 2 standard levels each.
  • various weapons with widely different attacks,
  • a nice range of enemies with different abilities,
  • a retro style map allowing levels to be replayed,
  • 5 difficulty modes from very easy to nightmare,
  • punchy chiptune music featuring electric guitars and so on,
  • gamepad support, 2 players support on a single keyboard.
  • achievements,
  • steam cloud saves,
  • steam trading cards.

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

“We plan to increase the price when we release the final version. Buying the game in Early Access means you get it for cheaper!”

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

“We will use the Steam community pages to communicate with users and gather feedback from them. In the meantime, we will update our blog, Facebook and Twitter pages with news about Dragon Bros’ new features.”

About This Game

Robots are everywhere! They've conquered the whole planet, destroyed the place you used to call home and kidnapped your dragon-mom. That's not right, bros! Definitively not right. The only cure for this terrible mess is to exterminate those cranky machines with bullets and big explosions! Play as a young dragon in this 2D retro run & gun adventure, in co-op or solo. Armed with shotguns and laser cannons, free your mom from the evil Mechaliches!

Story


Four teenage dragons go on an adventure to save their kidnapped mom. The culprits? The mechaliches! They are an evil robotic society who survived the collapse of a technologically advanced alien civilization. On their way, our dragons meet various mega bosses and learn more about their enemies goals.

Features


  • A smooth and fresh interpretation of classic Run and Gun games,
  • Solo or local co-op up to 2 players,
  • Tons of enemies to blow up,
  • Gorgeous pixel art,
  • Lots of weapons with alternatives firing modes,
  • Punchy soundtrack with old school tones,
  • Far too many explosions,
  • Higher difficulty modes for an extra challenge,
  • Full controller support,
  • 2 players on one keyboard support,
  • Hyper responsive controls and non stop action,
  • Future updates and free new levels already planned.

Gameplay


SHOOT SHOOT - DIE - SECRET PASSAGE - ROLL - OH NO IT'S A TRAP!

There are a dozen kind of enemies. Some are just shooting at you, other lob at you, some fly around and drop bombs, some have a shield in front of them, some fly and shoot, some are slow but very resistant, some are sniping you, some punch you etc.

Use the map to travel freely through already completed levels and improve your previous high score.

You can collect power ups along the track (machine gun, super laser, naval cannon, heath pack, etc.). Every act of destruction rewards you with scraps (score). Use them to unleash your weapon super powers for a few seconds: bigger bullets, bouncy projectiles, increased range, higher damage, larger splash area, secondary effects, etc!
