What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“A single tiny onion has been working on this game since 2015. It's been a long journey but it's finally time to get the game in player's hands, finish the final stretch and achieve maximum victory forever.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Under a year for the current feature set. It may take longer depending upon features requested by the community.”

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

  • Local versus mode containing 4 worlds with around 6 arenas each.
  • Practice and training modes.
  • 6 playable characters.
  • More items, traps, and arena gimmicks.
  • Fleshed out accessibility options. Full controller remapping.
  • Collect VHS tapes & learn about the Underworld.

Online multiplayer infrastructure is outside of my expertise, so the possibility of it's addition will be determined by the success of the game (as it would have to be outsourced). Were that a possibility, such an update would happen post 1.0. GameMaker Studio 2's adoption of engine level online multiplayer may also influence this.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

  • Local versus mode with 2 1/2 worlds, 6 arenas, 7 trap types and 6 items.
  • 4 player characters. Characters are not fully animated.
  • A laundry list of known bugs & visual errors. Unoptimized.
  • Full soundtrack. Simplified SFX.
  • Compatible with Remote Play Together, Parsec, and so on.

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

“The price may increase moderately upon full release or if large scale content updates are made.”

About This Game


4 friends. 1 weirdo mechanic. THROW AWAY YOUR FRIENDS with your trusty Trick Hook in this passive aggressive fighter where you can’t fight!


Swap places at the last conceivable moment to catapult opponents into punishment meant for you. Master the Underworld's instruments of destruction and come up with new methods of torment with your slingshot-like Trick Hook.


Parry anything. Cancel swaps, deflect traps, parry Death!


Items are more than cheap tricks! Utilize their full potential with the Trick Hook to bamboozle the opposition.


Death isn't the end in the Underworld. KO'd players become ghosts, who can do anything living ones can - except win. Destroy the living to revive and get back in the action. Enjoy intense matches up till the last second, even if you're new.


Collect VHS tapes, hangout in the DIEMART, and learn about the Underworld at Dumpster Fire Video. Or don't!
