Reviews

“...it’s looking very good even now and plays as good as it looks. The indie scene may be awash with games at the moment (which is great) but some, like Metal Heads, truly stand out. I know I’ll be keeping a keen eye on the progress of this game.”
Checkpoint Gaming (PAX AUS 19)

“the game will try its hardest to kill you. Whether lasers, fire or a giant globe rolling around there is always something trying to kill you”
Player2 (PAX AUS 19)

“Metal Heads plays somewhat like Mario Party, but all of the mini games that I played were more difficult than what I’m used to in a Mario Party game”

About This Game


Metal Heads is a crazy multiplayer party game with head-banging metal music, where up to 8 players compete in mini-games and board game modes with over 30 insane mini-games that are easy to play, but difficult to master.

ALL OF THE MINI-GAMES

Survive a nightmarish pipe filled with deadly fans, buzzsaws, and lasers in "Pipemare".
Run and Jump like a lunatic to avoid searing hot lasers in "Laser lunacy".
Melt your brain and put your memory to the test in "Melting Memory"
These are just a few of at least 30 mini-games that Metal Heads will launch with.

SOLO, LOCAL AND ONLINE MULTIPLAYER MAYHEM

Feel like playing with yourself? That's ok! Almost every mini-game can be played solo, and have alternate survival/chaos modes where you see how long you can survive.

It's not as much fun without friends though, so invite them over, but don't worry, 8 people can play locally, so nobody should be missing out on the fun.
Want to play with 8 players but don't have enough people? Join other players online for some 8 player madness with couch vs couch multiplayer.

ROLL THE DICE AND RUN!

Test your board game skills in the traditional board game mode.

Roll the dice, then RUN, JUMP, and PLATFORM your way to your destination; Take risky short-cuts, buy items, traps and obstacles at the shop to try and stop your opponents from winning.

LIKE A BOSS!

HOORAY! YOU WON! You get a........BOSS BATTLE!
Inspired by classic 3D platformer bosses, the winning player will become a boss with their own set of skills and abilities to try and defeat all of the other players in a 1 vs ALL boss battle.
The other players will need to use the environment, or wait for a window of opportunity to defeat the boss.
This battle will decide if you really are the ultimate metal head.

METAL HEAD MAKER

Create your own unique Metal Head with the in-built Metal Head Maker.
Chose the base head, and add accessories such as eyes, hair, antennae, or do the same with the body, and give your Metal Head a metal arm, maybe some clothing or....a CAPE!

HEAD-BANGIN' TUNES

It can't be called "Metal Heads" if there's no metal music, so the extremely talented Andy Gillion, of Mors Principium Est and Neverafter fame has created some head-banging, face melting, energetic music for each and every single mini-game. PLUS extended tracks for each mini-games alternate/survival/chaos mode.

LET ME SHOW YOUR THE FUTURE

I love party games, ALL of them, I don't care for competition, I just want to play them all, so it is great that I can create my own party game and add what I want to it, whenever I want.
This means that after Metal Heads releases on PC, these things I intend to try and add:
  • More mini-games. Eventually the plan is to have over 70 mini-games.
  • More board-games.
  • More game modes.
  • Mini-game maker.
  • Board-game maker.
  • More game themes. Because rusty metal can get a bit monotone after a while.
  • Seasonal updates. Because Santa's hats and winter mittens are Metal AF.
  • MORE METAL. For every mini-game created, a new music track comes with it. The plan is for Metal Heads to feature some of the most talented metal artists in the Metal music industry.

PLAY THE DEMO RIGHT NOW

Seriously...do it!

The Metal Heads demo currently supports offline/local play right now, and consists of 8 mini-games, most of which can be played solo.
The online multiplayer update is coming, so you can play with your friends, or make new friends online hopefully very soon.
The demo does not contain all features yet, and like all games, it has dreaded, nasty, squirmy bugs, so please, do not give up if you run into one, head on over to the support forums found below, you may find a solution to a problem, but if not, you will not be ignored.

F.A.Q.


HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE WORKING ON METAL HEADS?:
THERE ARE 2 PEOPLE:
Nathan Francis (Developer)
Andy Gillion (Musical Genius)

WHEN DID METAL HEADS START DEVELOPMENT?:
JANUARY 2017.
It has been on and off in development since then, but since MARCH 2019, development turned full time with 12-16hr days compared to the previous 4-8 hour weeks. And Nathan has relied on his day job in retail/sales to fund the project.
Andy GIllion started working on music for Metal Heads in late November 2019.

WILL METAL HEADS COME OUT ON CONSOLE?
Metal Heads would be perfect on console, so Nintendo Switch, Xbox and Playstation releases are planned for the future, but not solidified. There is currently no ETA for any console release, but you will be notified when it will be available.

WHY DID YOU MAKE METAL HEADS?
Metal Heads is a passion project, and something I (Nathan Francis) want to play when my friends come over, or whenever there is a party games night. I enjoy making things and seeing the reaction of others when they see and experience what I have made, especially when what I make, causes people to laugh and have a great time.
I also love party games, it's a great way for friends to get together, and online party games are a great way to meet new friends, however I wanted to create a party game where up to 8 people could play, so that nobody misses out on the fun.

WHEN WILL METAL HEADS RELEASE?
There is no definitive ETA yet, but Metal Heads aims to release late in September 2020, but hopefully before that.
As a solo developer, relying on a day job for income, it is difficult to maintain such a mammoth task of working 12-16 hours every single day, it is easy to burn-out so I need to be smart about how I work, and the future is unpredictable, so delays may happen, or ...hopefully, massive burst in productivity happen, and I can get Metal Heads out to you all sooner.
