What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

Stayin' Alive explores an entirely new multiplayer dynamic and we would love to hear about users' in-game experiences. This will help us create new features and game modes to push the project towards its full potential.

Playtesting and iteration is crucial for us in this phase and we're keen on our Early Access supporters joining us in the delivery of a truly unique indie title.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At some point before 2018 we hope to be able to graduate from Early Access but it's currently impossible to allocate a date or even a concrete timeframe with certainty.”

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

“Future Release Feature Plans:

  • Game Modes: More variations + more challenges.
  • Collectibles: More items to engage with creatively.
  • Locations: More multiplayer "arenas".
  • Crafting: More crafting options = more emergent experiences.
  • Stability & Performance: Always a must.
  • Sounds & Music: Improved sound effects + music options.
  • Full Controller Support: Currently only playable with keyboard.

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

Stayin' Alive is already a fun and very playable experience with:

  • online multiplayer capability (4 vs. 4)
  • 2 playable maps
  • 6 dying mechanisms
  • numerous life-saving mechanisms

The core aspects of the final version are already in place via a stable, smoothly performing build.”

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

“The price may flatline or take a slight bump upwards while Stayin' Alive progresses toward being a complete project.”

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

“We're actively looking for feedback as well as insight into Stayin' Alive's subject matter to make the game a more immersive experience. We hope for our Community Hub to become a place of vibrant discussion and we will be very responsive to input from our members.”

Update v1.5.1



New update online! In this version:
  • New Savior power-up: the Portable Isolation!
  • When a joypad is connected, control hints show joypad button names
  • More bug fixing all around

The Portable Isolation is an amazing Savior-only power-up, capable to drag in and isolate any Suicider who falls into its area of effect. Captured Suiciders will be instantly teleported inside a free isolation room! This power-up will disappear and respawn some seconds after the activation.
Have fun with this new toy. See you next update and remember, we will go out of Early Access quite soon! ;)

Update v1.5.0 - Full release incoming!



Bring in some friends and unlock the true potential of Stayin' Alive! In this version:
  • Play up to 8 vs 8!
  • Four new Suicider characters!
  • Hospital map is now fully open!
  • Room host can change map and match time directly from Room menu
  • Players will always return to Room menu after a match
  • Automatic match start is now delayed by some seconds, when a room is full
  • Nicer room information box in the Room menu
  • Improved AIs behavior (searching items, navigating, etc)
  • Savior AIs will drop their passive power-ups after a while, instead of keeping them forever
  • Improved item spawning criteria
  • Fixed a couple of major bugs when using the Blowgun
  • More bug fixing and improvements here and there
Time to go all in! You can now choose to play with up to 8 players per team, included AIs like before.
Hospital map will now open up to all four floors, depending by the number of players in a room (when playing 8 vs 8, maps will always be fully open).

Next, we decided to drop the concept of "Single round", "Multiple rounds" and "Map rotation" for a clearer experience. From now on the host will be able to change map and time in the Room menu, and after every match all players will be sent back to the Room screen.

Full release coming soon!
We are going out of Early Access in a few weeks! We will have just a couple more updates before that day. After that, we will continue supporting the game with fixes and some more extra content. :)

This is all for today's update. Thanks for playing and stay tuned! ;)

About This Game

Get A Whole New Lease On Life!

Do your best to die, or to save your enemies from death in this frantic multiplayer game about life and death.
Stayin' Alive is a game about four wheelchair-bound retirees who have decided it's high time to meet their maker, and four nurses who must keep the old geezers alive at all costs. Choose your side and let the dying/saving begin!

It's Check Out Time!

As a retiree, you will need to craft lethal weapons of self-destruction out of ordinary items and find a suitable place to commit suicide. But beware: nurses are looking for you and they're determined to save you from certain death.

Life Is Precious!

As a nurse, your job is keeping the old guys alive by finding the correct life-saving tool for any situation and using that on whoever is dying. Sedate the old-timers and conduct them into containment rooms to prevent suicide and instantly earn your score.


Any match lasts a few minutes and fast thinking is everything. Any time a retiree dies or is confined, points are assigned determining the winning party at the end of the match. Play in a small retirement house in South America or in a big hospital with up to 4 vs. 4 matches!

Will you take or save lives in the first ever FPSS (First Person Saver/Suicider)?

FEATURES:
  • Online Multiplayer matches for up to 8 players (4 vs. 4)
  • Save your enemies as a nurse. How good are you at keeping others safe?
  • Kill yourself as a retiree. How fast can you die?
  • Craft your tools of death. Razors made out of toothbrushes. Auto-combustion kit made from Zippos. Creativity is the key.
  • 6 ways to die. Each one with its corresponding life-saver tool. Die like you always wanted to IRL (!?).
  • Sedate and confine retirees. No real senior citizens were harmed in the making of this game.
  • Cooperation is the key. Help your friends die, or save everyone.
