What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

UPDATED 02/21/17: Grand Class Melee 2 is a fun & furious LOCAL MULTIPLAYER fight and we're taking it further with Steamworks integration so we can offer players a fully featured Steam game with achievements, trading cards, leaderboards, Workshop support, the whole shebang. Your interest now is important because it provides us the feedback and resources to better focus on building more game <3”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“New stuff has been coming together update by update through Early Access and sooner or later we'll be satisfied that the game fulfills the definition of full release. It's already been in the oven awhile and if GCM2 needs to cook a bit longer, so be it!”

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

“A fleshed out set of Steam features and additional game modes are the big ticket items in active Early Access development. In addition to good stuff like trading cards & achievements which we've been rolling out since Early Access launch, the whole thing's only going to become more polished, bugfixed and complete as development continues.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current build offers a stable and thoroughly tested couch multiplayer brawl with full controller support, audio/video/gameplay configurability, near-finished assets and no shortage of fantasy fisticuffs to be found in that giant class tree. Have a peek down below at the store page to get the full scoop of features :)”

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

“The price of Grand Class Melee 2 will not change for it's official release.”

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

“As more people play and get to know the game, we're paying close attention to player feedback to help us prioritize features in development. In addition, bug reports received from the Steam community have been an invaluable aid towards this game being as seamless as possible and we seriously dig the exciting ideas our fans share with us for things they'd like to see in GCM2. Don't hesitate to let us know what's on your mind, we'd love to hear it! :D

Thank you for taking the time to read through this Early Access interview and for informing yourself on the status of Grand Class Melee 2's development. Here's to a game that's fun today, tomorrow and in between.”

About This Game

Grand Class Melee 2 is an RPG job system arena fighter featuring a huge roster of over 60 character classes to battle with. Drawing inspiration from JRPG favorites and the competitive classics of console multiplayer, players progress through 8 intensifying rounds of fierce combat, gain new abilities each round and build up their arsenals to the top of the class tree.

To bolster the slash/thrust/parry weapons-based melee, every player pairs the new ability of their chosen job with one earned from an earlier job for an ever-evolving, two-fisted loadout. With up to 4 players mixing & matching, the possibilities are sprawling!

The fight gets fleshed out further by bots, teams, custom scoring, deeply tweakable procedurally generated battlefields and beyond with additional gameplay options.

GCM2 offers a stable, configurable, extensively tested couch multiplayer brawl supporting up to 4 players on gamepads & keyboard.

Features currently available include:


  • 'Critters' wander each biome, dropping a heart when killed (live as of v1.1.7!)
  • 'Selection Hiding' to prevent opponents from counter-picking classes (live as of v1.1.4!)
  • 'Terrain Generation Customization' that gives players the power to deeply customize the terrain generator (live as of v1.1.2!)
  • 'Steam Workshop Class Tree Modding' that gives players the power to create & customize classes (live as of v1.1.0!)
  • 'AI Challenges' with leaderboard support to bring fame to your hard-fought victories (live as of v1.0.16 & v1.0.14!)
  • 'Achievements & Trading Cards' to round out the Steam game experience (live as of v1.0.16 & v1.0.13!)
  • 'Spectator Mode' to set the AI on autopilot and relax as the melee unfolds (live as of v1.0.12!)



In the tradition of Street Fighter II, Warcraft II, Bomberman 2, Seiken Densetsu 2 and other greats you may not have played until they hit with part two, we present Grand Class Melee 2 -- a game for those who like a little variety in their job system arena combat.
