What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“While Dash Blitz is in a fun and playable state right now, we want it to be so much more. In order to keep working on the game steadily, and to gather as much useful feedback as possible, we want to bring the latest additions to you on a routine basis.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“While in Early Access, we plan to add approximately two characters each month, until the roster is complete, along with any other enhancements made during that time. From there we anticipate there would be a few more updates to finalise the game.

If all goes well, Dash Blitz could be finished within the year of 2018. We will endeavour to publicise any changes to this plan.”

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

“Dash Blitz will be considered complete when all 20 playable characters are finalised and the Grand Prix mode is implemented.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Local multiplayer for up to four players, with 8 playable fighters.
  • 6 playable stages.
  • 12 items.
  • 2 Qualifier time attacks (#1 & Rondo).

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

“We plan to provide the game at a reduced cost during Early Access. As Dash Blitz grows, the price may change to reflect the available content.”

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

“In addition to engaging with the community here on Steam and on other platforms, we intend for the player base to have a say in the way the game is updated. Each update, we would hope to put the two characters to be implemented up to a vote.”

Dash Blitz v0.3

Dash Blitz v0.3 is now available!
As usual, the demo features all this new content, but restricts playable characters to #1, Rondo, Sherpa and Kero.

General
  • Character visuals now much brighter - should help them to stand out.
  • Items now appear larger when unequipped, making them easier to see and pick up.
  • AI now utilises pathfinding to navigate stages, rather than moving to hardcoded points, and will respond to target proximity rather than just attacking thin air. AI has been changed a lot on the back end, allowing for much more robust AI patterns and more diverse stages going forwards, but hopefully this shouldn't prove too noticeable.
  • A number of other small tweaks.

New Content
  • Percival, the skeletal knight, joins the fight! Percival's calm and calculated in battle. He can run and jump while shielding, and even throw his shield as a spare attack!
  • Bluster, the roughneck full of hot air, joins the fight! Bluster's attacks send foes reeling, but they're not as powerful as they look... Good thing he's also incredibly agile, with a second midair jump and a hovering airdash!
  • You can now fight in Metro Sewers! Water pounds down from above, shutting off escape - a perfect arena for Edge's victims. But there's also a powerful waterspout in the centre of the stage, allowing a quick getaway to the top!
  • You can now fight on Moon Base Veracity! A huge, open space in a glass dome, staring up at the Earth. Anyone can bounce sky-high under this gravity!
  • AI Spectate mode! If you ever wanted to watch two computers barely aware of one another's presence try to finish the other off, now's your chance!

#1
  • Dash Swing now has a noticeable lunge effect where #1 increases speed. Perfect for stealing bases. Try jumping out of this to cancel it before the slow-down at the end!

Rondo
  • Rondo now has a real taunt. That is all.

About This Game

The year is 1410, Transmission Era.
Humanity has prospered thanks to instant transmission technology, and forgotten much of what preceded them. Wide-spread nanite use has given humans superior physical capabilities, and what was once considered "augmented" is now the norm. The thrill of combat is the top sport across the globe, and advances in nanite technology have continued to push fighters beyond their limit. Humans now compete on even footing with their own creations - and often fight more fiercely.

Dash Transit Solutions, the top dog in transmission networks, are sponsoring the DTS Grand Prix - the first international fighting tournament the Transmission Era has ever seen.
They're offering a mountain of credits, international glory, and the chance to demo an advanced AI, Vizier, which they claim can answer any question.

20 fighters will claw their way through the qualifiers and board the DTS Satellite for the greatest contest of their life. Each of them chases riches, glory, something less savoury… or answers.

It's time to blitz through the competition
