What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“TL;DR: Fury Unleashed is coming together really nicely, but we want to make our game even better! You can help us do that with you priceless feedback! At the current stage of development it would take about 12 hours to complete the game. The price will likely increase as we develop and add more content to it.

We have spent three years on development, during which we’ve tested TONS of ideas, mechanics, and more. Finally, with our Early Access build, we have a game that brings together all the best design choices – the perfect playground for our dedicated players. We want to finalize the development phase with your direct assistance, because we know our great community can help push our ideas even further, and introduce ones we never even thought of!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We intend to leave Early Access in first quarter of 2019. The game has improved a lot since its Early Access release in 2017, and we will spend the time left polishing it to make it the best game we possibly can.”

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

“Current version has three comic books fully done. With the final Early Access update, we'll add the storyline and the epilogue, which will be a bit smaller than a single comic book in terms of content. There will be many more features available for the player’s character too, including local co-op, weapons and more customization options. The sound effects will also get a complete overhaul.

And we’re planning to add more meta-systems to the game, like challenges, random events and additional game modes for extra replayability.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As it currently stands we’ve got about 80% of the content slated for the full game. The first three comic book settings are complete, with all basic enemies, and three main bosses and nine mini-bosses each. All the gameplay mechanics are working well though, so we probably won’t change them. The same goes for art direction. The soundtracks for the first comic books are of final quality, while the rest will be replaced. Sound effects are mostly temporary or work-in-progress.”

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

“At the end of Early Access the game will be much richer in content – we’ll add content throughout the game the epilogue, among other things, so it’s likely it’ll come with a slightly higher price.”

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

“We believe that the community will be a great source of ideas for cool items, skills or random events that we could add to the game. We also want to create a platform where everyone can talk to us about anything – starting with general ideas, through balance tweaks, finishing at new features, etc. We really think that the community will help us make the final build of Fury Unleashed the greatest experience possible! You can reach us through our Facebook, Twitter and here on the Steam page. We’ll keep you posted about everything new to the game.”

Update #49 - Fury Unleashed unleashes its true visual potential!

Now we’re sure this one isn’t something you guys have been expecting as we’ve been silent about it. But this doesn’t mean we haven’t read your comments and Steam reviews. We’ve also been taking a close look at previews and let’s plays.

And based on exactly that – your feedback, we’ve been working hard to update the look of our game and can now finally share the results. So, the next time you launch Steam, download the update and start the game; you’ll notice:

  • New lighting effects
  • Distortion effect
  • Comic strokes being added
  • Better quality textures
  • New effects when killing an opponent using the melee weapon
  • A bunch of other visual improvements

Of course, we also have something for those of you who don’t really care what the game looks like and who focus more on how it plays. With this new update you’ll be able to enjoy:

  • Two new NPCs – Commander X and The Grim Reaper
  • Three new enemies
  • Unlockable skins for the hero
  • New secret rooms
  • Audio improvements
  • The possibility of checking the story in the handbook
  • Many additional gameplay and level design improvements

We’d love to hear from you – tell us if you like these changes and if you think it’s a good direction. And if you do, please consider leaving a review - they're more imporant to us than you'd think!

So, without further ado, jump straight to the game, test all the changes, and let us know what you think of them! Also, don’t forget to follow our Steam Profile us on our social media (Discord, Facebook, Twitter) to be always up to date with all the changes we’re bringing to the game.

Update #46 - Fury Unleashed’s storyline unveiled!

Hello Heroes!

We have quite a piece for you today. But before we begin, please meet your new companion – Mr. Doodle. Starting today, he will assist you as a guide through the world of Fury Unleashed.

Mr. Doodle will tell you the entire enigmatic story that fills the pages of our comic book. He will be providing narration, leading you through all the blood-curdling battles and struggles. Don’t get us wrong, he won’t help you dispatch any monsters on the way – absolutely not. He just does the talking.

Our pal will introduce you to the stories in the three available comics, and when it’s time to leave Early Access, each story will come to an end with the addition of Epilogue World, which takes place in the sketchbook. Believe us when we tell you: it’s worth the wait!

As usual, we have even more for you today. We really enjoy treating you to new functionalities and seeing you all having fun learning new possibilities and discovering how to beat completely fresh obstacles and opponents. So how about adding a bunch once again?

Here are the details:

  • The new NPC – The Order of Eternal Ink, where you can get a blessing for a small fee;
  • New traps that occur at dark stages;
  • The possibility to further adjust the Easy difficulty level during the game through an option in the pause menu;
  • Improved sounds related to your activity in the game (shots, melee attacks, jumps, etc.);
  • And as usual, bug fixes and performance optimizations.

That’s it for today, Heroes. Thanks for stopping by. If you like what you see, consider following us on our social media (Discord channel, Facebook, and Twitter!) to make sure you’re always up to date with all that we have in store.

About This Game

Fury Unleashed (*previously called The Badass Hero) is a rogue-lite action-platformer, where you play through pages of a comic book. Experience fast-paced hit-and-run gameplay. And never do the same thing twice, thanks to procedurally generated levels and random items. All in highly refined, modern, hi-res 2D art.

Somehow chaos has entered the comic book multiverse and your whole world has gone nuts. That’s how your story starts: You’re from a long-gone era, and were once a great hero, but now things have gotten worse – your powers have been lost! Your quest is simple, yet deadly – you need to write your story anew and relive your greatest accomplishments. Order will be restored when and only when you prove you are the true hero.

Your guns are your best friends, and ink is the new gold – collect it from defeated enemies to upgrade your hero. The more dynamic and forceful your play style, the greater the rewards! There’s a cost though – stay focused at all times, or you’ll die sooner than you think.


  • Comic book setting – dive into comic book reality with Metal Slug inspired visuals.
  • Action platforming with 360° shooting – jump, dash, shoot, slash and blow things up!
  • Procedurally generated levels – you’ll never know what waits for you around the corner.
  • Customizable character – take advantage of Steam Workshop and make the hero your own.
  • Permadeath with character progression – you’ll keep the collected ink even if you die.
  • Three unique comic stories to playthrough:
    - Face the awakening Evil God in "Quetzalcoatl’s Awakening",
    - Defeat the Nazis in "Operation Crimson Dusk",
    - Defend the Earth from alien invasion in "The Last Stand of Earth".
  • Lots of game-changing items and weapons – wreak havoc on your enemies with shotguns, machine guns, rocket launchers and other firearms. Don’t forget about defense too – choose the best armor possible!
