Why Early Access?

“Pain Party is an experience that will grow with the help of the community. Player feedback will be paramount to create the best experience possible.”

“Early access will continue throughout 2021 and will be release in early Q1 2022.”

About This Game

Story

After an unfortunate mini golf accident (which led to your immediate demise) you wake up in purgatory.
This is not the classical purgatory that we've all read about, but instead is a Japanese game show where the winners get to ascend and the losers get to spend an eternity moderating online forums without any kind of monetary compensation.

About the game

Pain Party combines that madness of a party game with the mechanics of a souls like and precision jumping.
You can either play PvP with up to 16 players or play offline in the single player mode, where you have to beat levels to unlock further progression.

Gameplay


Stamina management and Item usage
The first thing you need to learn is that everything in pain party costs stamina, from jumping, punching, dodging, to even using items.

If you run out of stamina you won't be able to do any of that above and you'll also walk slower so keep a close eye on that stamina meter.

There a lot of ways to get the upper hand in Pain Party, spawn-able items are one such thing.
You might find anything from blunderbusses to time stopping hour glasses.



Precision jumping
Jumping in Pain Party isn't like in other games. Holding the jump button will make you do high but short jumps, while tapping the jump button will make you do long horizontal jumps.



Progress and unlock
Winning multiplayer matches and progressing in story mode will help you unlock skins for your character.
