What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We want to receive a wider range of input from the community, and feel that the game is already good enough for a bigger audience despite some rough edges and lack of polish here and there.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for full release approximately six months into early access.”

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

“The full version is planned to include additional bonus levels, weapons and secrets for the player to find. The currently existing levels should also be polished more and all major bugs should be fixed.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The base game is all there and everything is completely playable. This so far includes 13 levels, 18 different weapons to find and unlock as well as many different enemy types. Please refer to the about section for more detailed information about the game and its features.”

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

“No, the price of early access is the same as the full release.”

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

“We will be actively following the Steam community forums, our official Discord and Twitter and taking feedback from the community.”

About This Game

WARNING: This game is not recommended for people with photosensitive epilepsy.

Cruelty Squad is a tactical first person shooter set in the hardcore gig economy of corporate liquidations. You're an emotionally dead combat-substance fueled grunt of Cruelty Squad, a depraved subsidiary company tasked with performing wetworks for its host conglomerate. Will you make the Corporate Arch Demoness proud or succumb to bitter tears of failure?

  • Highly kinematic tactical gameplay using varied weapons such as the flechette shotgun, silenced 10mm pistol, radiation emitter, dart gun, corrosive gas launcher and more.
  • No handholding!
  • All of the missions have multiple viable approaches and routes. Plan out your equipment loadout to gain a tactical advantage. Choose between non-lethal and lethal options. Throw toilet bowls at enemies.
  • Fight and sneak through offices, suburbs, police stations and secret compounds. Find and unlock hidden equipment and levels.
  • Open objective based gameplay, in each mission your goal is to kill or destroy your targets before heading for the exit.
  • Revisit earlier missions and try to beat your best time. Can you S-rank all of the missions?
  • Enemies including private security, cops, psycho freaks, flower hybrids, swamp cultists and mutant dogs.
  • Talk to NPCs and figure out the mysteries of the world.
