What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We wanted everyone to enjoy Slashers and contribute Slashers' development. In order to make a fighting game balanced and fun, a lot of feedback from the players are required. Since a lot of aspects of the game needs fine tuning llike game balance, inputs, netcode and animations, we need time to implement all the cool ideas without awaiting the game's release date. In this regard, we are open to any suggestions and cool ideas! Slashers is a competetive game and we would like to grow a community while we're building it.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to finish all the release features of the game till the beginning of Q2 2018.”

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

“We expect to add more content over the course of Early Access. It's planned to have 11 characters, more stages, more game modes, character assesories, better netcode, balanced and fun gameplay...”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The EA version will have on launch:
  • 4 playable characters, 2 backgrounds
  • Netplay mode with Ranked challenges, Rooms, Leaderboards, Replay Channels
  • Combo Recording and Sharing Mode
  • Character Color Editing Mode
  • Tutorial Mode
  • Full Controller support
  • Interface and Subtitle language support for English, Turkish, Portuguese and Spanish.

We plan to have the following features implemented within the next 6 months.
  • 7 Characters (One character per month)
  • Advanced Character Color Editing Mode
  • Story Mode
  • A "Real" Arcade Mode
  • Cool Netplay modes(based on feedback)
  • Advanced Tutorial Mode
  • More supported languages

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

“There will be a price change when the EA period ended.”

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

“We're really interested in improving netplay features based on the community's feedback about any deal with any technical problems they encounter. We also develop the balance of the game over a long period of time based on player feedback. When it comes to new features and game modes, we're open to new ideas from our community!”

Slashers Update 2.118: Efe 'The Ottoman Slapper' is here!

Efe: The Ottoman Slapper joins the fray as the 6th playable character for Slashers!

Efe is a dagger-wielding, energy-ball throwing Ottoman fighter with damaging focused attacks. Thanks to his rigorous training (slapping marble blocks), his slap attacks send opponents flying across the arena. The newest warrior added to Slashers excels at switching low and high moves rapidly which keeps opponents unbalanced and gives him the opportunity to deal devastating combos.

Since launching onto Early Access Slashers: The Power Battle has received a host of improvements, including the new "Tournament" mode, where players can participate and win rewards, but be warned, if you don't show up during your bracket match, then your opponent may win automatically! The game has also been updated with several balance changes and graphical improvements and the gamepad support has been improved.

We have so many more epic ideas to introduce into Slashers, and our powerful Ottoman slapper is just a nice addition to the game’s diverse roster!

Stay tuned for the next new challenger: ‘Ikuzo!’
