What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“ABS vs. THE BLOOD QUEEN is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to give Killer Queen players a captivating single-player experience to play at home while quarantining through the Coronavirus pandemic.

Because of this, we’re making this game very very quickly. Normally we spend months or years making games. Due to the accelerated nature of the project, we want to be able to work directly with our players and community, putting out builds and receiving feedback to make the best possible version of our vision.

Having the game out in Early Access means that we can continue to develop and polish all of our planned additional content like three additional worlds, more enemy types, new power-ups, and a proper endgame.

We would love to have you join us as we continue the work on this exciting new retro platformer!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan on having the first playable build released through Steam by Q4 2020, but the game will stay in Early Access for as long as it needs to.”

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

“Currently, the early access version has two playable worlds and a boss battle.

The full version will likely include two more worlds, each with world-specific features, enemies and mechanics, culminating in a final battle with the Blood Queen herself. The final version will also include online leaderboards.

We have big ideas for this game that we're excited to share as development continues!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Version 0.4.1 features the first two playable worlds, a boss battle, a bunch of enemies and hazards, and our procedural level + soundtrack generation.

Also, there's a snail. So that's cool.”

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

“Early Access pricing is set to reflect the lowest price that was available on our Kickstarter. This price will cover all of our outlined content up to the full release of the game -- this includes all game modes, playable characters, and any other improvements we implement before release.”

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

“Just like Killer Queen and Killer Queen Black, our community is our strongest asset.

We have an active Discord community, and players are encouraged to use it as the primary method for feedback and discussion.”

About This Game

Killer Queen took the arcade world by storm.
Killer Queen Black brought the battle home.
And now... ABS vs. THE BLOOD QUEEN heralds the first single-player Killer Queen adventure!



Built directly on top of the Killer Queen engine, ABS vs. THE BLOOD QUEEN takes the skills and techniques found in Killer Queen and applies them to an entirely new experience, full of never-before-seen enemies and challenges. As the titular hero, Abs, you'll run, fly, and slay your way through the undead horde as you head towards a fated showdown with the terrifying, all-powerful Blood Queen!

EXPLORATION - Make your way through brand-new, randomly generated worlds that will keep each playthrough feeling unique and challenging! Play on one-of-a-kind battlefields that are generated daily, monthly, or every time you die (which will probably be a lot.)



ARCADE-STYLE SCORING - What's the point of being good at something if you can't show off? Prove your might with Daily Challenges, and earn some sorely-needed bragging rights with Global Leaderboards! You may not have the high score today, but tomorrow's level could be a whole different story.



BATTLE-TESTED GAMEPLAY - Using the Killer Queen engine, ABS vs. THE BLOOD QUEEN will feel familar to Killer Queen veterans while staying accessible to newcomers. You want me to say the thing? Yeah, I'll say it -- EASY TO LEARN, DIFFICULT TO MASTER.



KEEP YOUR SKILLS SHARP - Kick berries, ride the snail, and take to the skies in aerial combat!

A LITTLE BACKSTORY ON BUMBLEBEAR AND ABS VS THE BLOOD QUEEN


Over the years, we at BumbleBear Games have striven to be the vanguards of the modern arcade. We've put over 150 Killer Queen machines into arcades, bars, and rec rooms across the country, with millions of games played. Our games are all about physically bringing people together, face to face—which at the present moment, is obviously not possible.

When COVID-19 started sweeping across the globe, the arcade scene was (and continues to be) heavily impacted by the closing of bars/arcades and the implementation of social distancing. This left both our company and the Killer Queen community in a rough spot, so we set out to create something unique that would help bring our players closer together while we all navigate the difficulties of quarantined life.

That's how we came up with ABS vs. THE BLOOD QUEEN, the fast-paced, high-flying, single-player 2D platformer based in the Killer Queen universe. We hope you enjoy our first single-player Killer Queen adventure!
