What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“AGAINST is already a fully-fledged experience. You can complete a story campaign in 7 levels, all available in 3 difficulties, from Easy to Hard. And play custom levels.

We still need some time to tweak a few weapons like the whip and kunai daggers. When we finish working on them, they will replace the standard weapons in some gameplay sections of the story campaign. And we will also add them to the AGAINST Beatmap Editor tool.

We also hope to receive feedback on the game and potential future content from the community to make sure that AGAINST is fine-tuned and well-polished in the full release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to be in Early Access until we have implemented 2 more types of weapons to the game, polish everything and add more in-game content. This is likely to take a few months.

Each new chapter, game mechanic and other upgrades will be added based on feedback from the community.”

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

“The early access version of the game features a complete story campaign in 7 levels, all available in 3 difficulties, from Easy to Hard.

The current pool of weapons is: a sword, a revolver, Tommy guns and knuckle dusters.

The complete version of the game will feature all the above, as well as 2 more types of weapons as a near update. We also plan to introduce other in-game content with future content updates. Gameplay and game mechanics will also be perfected for the final release based on feedback and iterations throughout the Early Access period.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game features a full-fledged story campaign, in which you will be able to dispatch villains to the beat as you make progress in the story of the confrontation between Detective John Black and Dr. Vice.”

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

“Buying the game in Early Access, users get access to all 7 levels of the campaign and future updates of the related content. We will leave Early Access with the release of future content extensions, after which the game price may increase. For those who purchased the games in Early Access, the main story and related content will be available for free.”

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

“We are always glad to hear feedback from the community. We do our best to implement your ideas and address your concerns. We are online, so drop us a line!

About This Game

'AGAINST' is a rhythmic journey through crime-ridden streets and their phantasmagoric seamy side.

Dodge obstacles, run up walls - all the while picking off your enemies as the pounding music builds. Use your mind and muscle memory to banish evil and find answers.

Fierce songs combined with rhythmic combat with a gritty comics aesthetic make for a truly unique experience.

Detective Got a Gun

Slice the henchmen with your sword and mow them down with your gun - but do it rhythmically for points and pleasure. Brass knuckles and a Tommy Gun will complement your arsenal.

Dark Comic-Style Graphics

We’ve paid loving attention to the dark and gritty comic book style. Set in 1930s America, the story of Dr. Vice’s terrifying ambitions is revealed through comic book cutscenes full of dimmed colors and frightening shadows.

Deadly Enemies and Dreadful Bosses

Dispatch villains to the beat as you make progress in the investigation. At the end of each chapter, take on the boss in sync with a musical climax.

Diverse Levels, Intriguing Narrative

Finish a complete storyline about the confrontation of Detective and Dr. Vice in 7 levels, all available in 3 difficulties. The chapters are set in different locations, each with its own unique touch.

Play & Create Custom Levels

Against Beatmap Editor is a free tool that allows you to create your own maps using your own music. Using this editor you can place enemies, weapons and obstacles in perfect synchronization with your music. Then you can play your custom maps in AGAINST.

Mature Content Description

The developers describe the content like this:

Non-realistic enemies aggressively attack the player using long-range and melee weapons. Likewise, the player can and must destroy enemies in many ways. The player can be destroyed by enemies.
