What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access is awesome as it lets us show our in-progress game to our awesome fans and work on it together with them.

It also lets us test the multiplayer features of the game in a real world context, with players spread around the globe and unpredictable events, configurations, controllers and playing styles.

We used Early Access for our previous release - Door Kickers (2013-2014) - and it proved that shaping the final game together with the community, involving the players, listening to their feedback and ideas - while keeping your core design in mind - is the best way to produce an enduring and genre defining game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The game will be in Early Access for 6 to 8 months - up to July 2018.”

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

“Our development plan involves regular updates, at least once a month. The FINAL version should include the following changes:

Major Features:
- Character Development
- Boss enemies
- Level Editor

Minor Features:
- Leaderboards

- 1 NEW Player Class: Recon (total 4 classes)
- 6 usable weapons per player class
- 60 playable levels
- 17 non-boss enemies”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is very playable and fun to play, but there's content and features to be added.

The current content is:
- Single Player and Cooperative Multiplayer (online and couch coop)
- 3 Player Classes: Assaulter/Breacher/Shield
- 3 unique weapons per class
- 3 usable, common, gear items
- 24 levels
- 8 enemies
- 1 non enemy NPC
- 3 mission types”

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

“There will be a ~20% price increase after Early Access ends.”

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

“We have strong communication channels via email, forums, steam community and always answer to all feedback in person. We also hold regular polls on game features and what we should focus our development on, according to the game players.

Our plan is to launch regular updates - at least once a month - and implement player feedback as soon as possible.”

Welcome to Early Access - let the bug fixing begin!

Hey folks, welcome!

First of all, if you're still trying to make up your mind about the game, we found a pretty cool let's play... in coop!

Secondly, we know many people don't like Early Access (unfinished/buggy games), but it's one of the few options we, as a small developer, have of actually finishing the game and make it better!

We are our own QA team and obviously can't find all the issues. Also, we really appreciate the fresh suggestions/ideas for the next updates! We're 6 dudes locked in a small box (ok, apartment), sometimes we need some out-of-the-box thinking.

We already released two bug-fixing patches, and are working really hard towards the next big update, which will bring tons of new content. TONS! Like a lot. Huuuuge!

Anyway, thanks for the help and let's make this game awesome, because it already is unique, ha!

Like...really, just look:


OK here's what we fixed until now:

v0.5.16 from 19-Nov-2017
+ Fixed bugs that would result in the game freezing while playing online (FINAL)
+ Speed Pouches now give you -30% Reload Time
+ Improved random level selection when quick playing online

v0.5.15 from 19-Nov-2017
+ Fixed several bugs that would result in the game freezing while playing online (could still happen, please let us know if it does)
+ Fixed several issues in levels: 1.1, 2.2, 2.5, 2.7
+ Fixed script-related crash
+ Fixed character selection screen desync
+ Fixed screen flashing red when team-mate got hit
+ Added DPI Awareness

About This Game

Door Kickers: Action Squad is an old school side scroller action game that puts you in the role of a SWAT trooper and sends you to deal with bad guys in various locales of Nowhere City USA.

Chose your gear wisely then kick the doors down and face the outlaws. Master weapons recoil and time your reloads, use distance and cover to your advantage and, most importantly, know your enemy and deal with him accordingly.

And when it gets too hard, bring over a friend to help.
