What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're going with an Early Access Beta route to expand the player base beyond our Kickstarter backers, and to give everyone who's become interested in BEARZERKERS since our Kickstarter a chance to play and help mold the game in its final stages.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We've been in Early Access since late 2015, and after a lot of work we'll be reaching our final goals soon.”

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

“We're looking to build in a lot of variation to both modes of the game through our modifier system, add more playable critters, deadly bears and additional abilities and challenges for Gauntlet. Gauntlet mode especially is at an early state with a lot of ideas we hope to expand it with.

We'll also be looking into adding Steam features such as Achievements, Trading Cards, Steamplay, Leaderboards(for Gauntlet) etc.

On top of the things we'll be adding, the full version will potentially have more polished visuals and audio, less bugs and technical issues. We're looking to tweak for balance, fun and any technical issues players might be having. We've been doing testing ourselves on all the PC's and Mac devices we have, but the best way to know that everything will work as intended is to open it up to everyone who would like to play early.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“All the major building blocks of the game are in place and have been fun for a while now. As it stands we have 6 maps to play in the competitive mode Hunt, 4 of which have final or near final art, and 2 which are still in "greyboxing" stages in order to lock down the fun of their layouts before moving onto making them pretty. Our cooperative Gauntlet mode currently has one basic level with limited art. Gauntlet will be expanded to have more map variations, ending 'boss' challenges and we're looking into a procedurally generated variation.”

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

“BEARZERKERS will be the same base price during Early Access and after the full release, this does not include promotional discounts.”

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

“First off we'd love to hear from you all in the community hub about all the abilities and maps you love or hate and we'll be doing our best to respond to that stuff through the forum posts and the game itself. Beyond that we'll be collecting data about how you all play, so that we can use that kind of information to make the game better for everyone.”

About This Game

BEARZERKERS is a local multiplayer game of two halves, with a focus on indirect combat and avoidance. HUNT pits you and your friends against each other; where you don't need to run faster than the bear to survive, just faster than the person next to you. GAUNTLET is the ultimate game of moment to moment cooperation where every second counts and a single slip up can be the end for you and your team.

Game Modes:

Trap other players using rock walls, and activate your powerups at just the right moment on your way to killing the hell out of everyone. The end goal of HUNT is simple, be the last Critter left with the Bear. HUNT is a last man standing scenario with a variable number of bears, lives, and powerups, spread across a broad selection of open, twisting maps.

The second mode however is about moment to moment cooperation through the chaos. In GAUNTLET players must work together and use their skills in tandem to reach the end of a deliriously dangerous death zone. Here, a single touch from any of the enemies within means death, though other players can save each other with a touch of their own. As you progress you level up and become more powerful, but with equal measure the challenge is raised. This mode is also playable alone for extra challenge.

The Goods:

  • Painstakingly created beautiful 3D world with a lovely hand painted art style.
  • Powerups galore await you in Hunt to give you the edge, as well as totally different abilities and gameplay for your Critter pals in Gauntlet.
  • Inappropriately kickass soundtrack and sounds from musician Tommy Gough.
