What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“I'm working non stop on M.EXE and it's a labor of love. Early access will help pay the bills and keep development moving fast.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until I feel the game has enough content and features to feel more complete.”

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

“The full game will have a more fleshed out and competitive multiplayer experience. Much more content such as more monsters, more types, more moves, to keep battles fresh. More cosmetic options for both monsters and trainers. I would also like there to be a more single-player/coop portion of the game that involves more than just battling AI.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is completely playable, both single-player and multi-player(online + local). Local multi-player currently requires 2 gamepads since both the keyboard and first gamepad are both assigned to the first player. This is an issue I'll work on fixing over time.”

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

“Undecided. This will completely depend on how things go in the future.”

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

“I will post updates on my website(https://mdotexe.com). I will be open with the game's development and will also regularly check feedback, both on Steam as well as through the subreddit (https://reddit.com/r/mdotexe).”

Major Bug Fixes

A lot of code was redone for how abilities are used and queued up. This was tedius but the result is that some major bugs have been squashed. But there might be some new ones showing up now so we'll see how that goes...

  • Fixed bug where abilities would sometimes cast twice
  • Fixed bug where an ability would only be casted half way and the queued up ability would then start up
  • Fixed a bug where ability casting animations would sometimes play twice
  • Fixed bug where Recharge would cast twice resulting in the Recharge visual effect being permanently on your monster
  • Fixed bug where queued ability after a Recharge command would result in the queued ability casted while still Recharging the entire time

About This Game

Game Still In Development


Welcome to M.EXE! The competitive, multiplayer, monster battle arena. As a trainer, you will give your monster commands in battle to come out on top. Victory or defeat will depend completely on your skill as a monster trainer. Explore the different moves and monster types, plan out your strategies, and become the best monster trainer that there ever was!

Story

A mysterious program appears online, with the executable file being m.exe. The program gave every user a monster partner. The monsters all have their unique personalities, but they all have one thing in common. They crave to battle. And to do so efficiently they require a human trainer. m.exe quickly became popular as a competitive game, with many trainers all over the world battling to become the best.

There is a mystery as to who created m.exe and where it came from, as well as an unknown threat.
When I work on a single-player/coop adventure mode for this game, I plan on basing it around this mystery.

Key Features:


  • Strategic monster battles in real-time!
Battles in M.EXE are not turn-based and feel strategic. There is no RNG here.

  • Customize your monster
2 monsters of the same species can be completely different from one another. Choose which moves your monster goes into battle with and which stats to spend your stat points on. Monster skins are also available for more cosmetic customizations.

  • Spectate AI battles
Make some popcorn and watch them fight.

  • Multiplayer
Create and join games and battle other Trainers online. Or play vs a friend on the same computer(currently requires 2 gamepads).

Coming Soon:


  • 2v2 Tag Mode
Join up with a buddy and take on AI or another group of players in 2v2 tag mode. Or fight 1v2 if you're feeling brave.

  • Customize your Trainer

  • Many more monsters, types, and moves!

M.EXE is still in early development and purchasing this product will help with the development costs to keep progress moving quickly. There will be bugs but we will search and destroy.
