What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Two Strikes is a fighting game made by just 3 persons. Having the community involved will increase the overall quality of the game and get the game to a bigger audience, which will help balance the characters, find bugs which is very important for this genre.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It will be released in the beginning of 2024.”

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

“The current version of the game consist in 7 playable characters. The full version will have 8 playable and fully realized characters, balanced against every other characters, another game modes like story mode, in-game content like images from development, concept art.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the game comes with 7 playable fighters, seven scenarios and seven theme songs. Also, right now the only multiplayer mode is local multiplayer. The final version is expected to have online multiplayer.”

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

“Yes, the game will be cheaper during early access and then a small increase for the release.”

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

“The community will be a the most important part of this early access. Two Strikes is a game created by 3 persons and not a lot of playtesting were carried to determine how balanced the game is between 2 human players. The AI is good enough, even though it will be improved. Also, as a small indiedev team, we are still testing new features in the gameplay which will be tested by the community, besides finding bugs and reporting them for us.
Other important thing is that we will be adding more characters throughout the early access and the community playing the game and testing it for us is utmost important to release a rounded vanilla version by the end of the early access.”

About This Game

Japan, 1568 - Oda Nobunaga's troops march on Kyoto leaving behind a trail of blood in what will be known as the Sengoku Period.

Samurai, warrior monks, outlaws and peasants, caught up in the maelstrom of violence, had no choice but to take up arms and fight, and after every battle, kill or be killed.

At this point, the Shinigami, the God of Death saw his work done for him; men and women delivering the Final Punishment of Death everywhere, yet only a few truly embodied the Slaughter, those whose lust for Vengeance not even hell could kill.

And so the Tournament was born; those souls who died wishing to continue dispensing murder were reunited, and one last chance was granted to them. To win and return to earth once more to continue unleashing the carnage, to become the next Champion of the God of Death.

Welcome to

Experience the electrifying rush of life-or-death duels in a heartbeat!
