Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe that the best way to develop games is with the help of the people who will be playing the game when it is finished. Since the game's inception, there has been a publicly available version, and the feedback and excitement it has generated has been invaluable to the development process.

We have previously run a very successful Early Access campaign with Broforce, and we will be using lessons learnt from that campaign to ensure we use this Early Access campaign to make GORN the best game it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The length of the Early Access campaign will depend entirely on the reception of the game. The more people like the game, the more we will likely want to add to it. Probable duration is likely somewhere between 3 months to a year.”

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

“For us, a large part of Early Access is figuring out what people like about our game - so most of the work will be prioritised by what YOU would like to see.

More and better content will be the focus of our work - we'd like to add many, many more weapons, more enemies to fight, and more and better champions to defeat. The feeling of progression and variety in the campaign also has a lot of room for improvement as of Early Access launch.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We believe that it is important that a player receives their money's worth at day 1 of Early Access. We believe GORN currently is the best melee combat game available for the vive, and is already capable of providing hours of entertainment in its current state.”

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

“The price of the game may change after Early Access, depending on community feedback and the amount of content added during development.”

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

“Up until now, much of the content and features that have been added to the game since the first public demo has been guided by community requests and this will continue to be our focus going forward.”

GORN Crab Update

Are you ready for the terror of the Crustacean Crusader?

That's right - the latest GORN update has arrived with a new Champion known as "The Shellbeast"...or "BeupVuta" or, most creatively, "The Crab".

And just like the rest of the Champions, defeating The Crab gives you access to the brand new, skull-crushing, limb removing, Crab Claw Caestus.

We've also added new heavy armour for your enemies, revamped the arena and done the usual assortment of bug fixes and performance improvements.

To celebrate the update, we've released a new trailer featuring the beloved ROKIBE diss track, ‘KIROIM ES BEKI’ from recording artist BE KIROOD:

GORN EARLY ACCESS MAY 2018 UPDATE

Hi!

We’re starting off with an apology: we know it’s been a while since the last update - and this update is a bit smaller than usual.

Our team’s been away on Game Jam Island 2 and Pirate Jam , but since then we got back we’ve all been full force on GORN development again!

This update mostly brings cosmetic and performance improvements, as well as a few fixes.

CHANGELOG:

- New & improved blood

- New night time arena for Champion battles

- A new armor type for enemies

- A Katana


AND MORE!
- New title screen
- Rework to the cell for performance
- Combat scene performance improvements
- Fixes/improvements to two handed weapon handling (probably still WIP)
- A rework to how the mobility caestus work, hopefully making them more powerful and less finicky to use
- Several graphical tweaks & improvements to both arenas

As this update goes live, we’re already working on new content for you guys that’ll be coming at you in the next few months!

As always, a huge thanks to the community for all your feedback that shapes our development. Please keep sending us your suggestions, performance complaints and bug reports.

About This Game

GORN is a ludicrously violent VR gladiator simulator, made by Free Lives, the developers of Broforce and Genital Jousting. Featuring a unique, fully physics driven combat engine, GORN combatants will be able to creatively execute their most violent gladiatorial fantasies in virtual reality. Savagely strike down an infinite supply of poorly-animated opponents with all manner of weapons – from swords, maces, and bows to nunchuks, throwing knives, massive two-handed warhammers or even your blood-soaked bare hands. The only limits to the carnage are your imagination and decency, in the most brutal and savage VR face-smashing game ever produced by man.
