What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’re careful about having the best experience possible for the players. We chose early access to improve the game difficulty, controls and level balancing. You will also be able to help on the editors user experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re planning around 6 months of Early access. This time will help us polish the game, finish the whole adventure.
We don’t want to bring a game half-finished to the community.
We don’t intend to bring crafting, space ships, infinite universes and monstrous dinosaurs.
We only need heavy metal and stupid zombies to shoot in the face.”

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

“During the Early access, we aim to add roughly 10-15 new songs, 3 chapters in the story mode and even more guest tracks in the level editor. We want to have around 2x more content.

We will also add new translations to gather new players.

We may also add new game modes based on player feedbacks.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“You currently have access to three game modes : story, arcade, editor.
Note that all of these game modes are work in progress.

What is a double kick hero without an epic adventure? We crafted a story featuring the main characters of the game and much more.
Jump in the gundillac and get ready to discover the world out there.
This sad, zombified world is waiting for your music. You only have the first three chapters here. It should last around 4 hours for the average player.

Want to jump right in the action? It only happens in five steps:
Launch the game
Click arcade
Launch a level
Play very loud to summon Satan \m/.

You think Elmobo’s soundtrack (our composer) sucks?
No problem, pick your shitty rap music and play monotonous beats.
Or you can also try some Tenacious D and feel the power of METAL.
Play whatever track you want.
Obviously, we don’t promote piracy, buy your albums.”

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

“The game will be slightly cheaper in the Early Access.”

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

Regular players will help us refine the story mode and difficulty.
Is the adventure epic enough? Are the dialog cheesy enough?
Is the game challenging enough but not too hard?
They will also help us build hundred of levels thanks to the level editor!

Hardcore rhythm game players will help us on the hard mode.
Is it hard enough? Do you have carpal tunnel already? If not, why?
Help us make it the challenge you’ve always dreamed of.

Streamers also have a high impact on the game.
Is it easily streamable? Can we add options to help streamers?
Help us make it a great community game.

We’re listening to everyone’s opinion so please, tell us what you think!”

The Malevolent Mobula and its cohort of evil minions are on the path of the Double Kick Heroes. In this chapter 5, they’re entering Transylvania and trying to bring an end to the evil in this world! They’ll meet Jake and Cage.

As they progress through Transylvania, they will meet new types of evil minions. More evil means more METAL in their faces!

These 4 new levels include a boss level with the malevolent Dracula, also called “cute cat baby” by Man Hellsing.


We met Suda51 and the team of Grasshopper Manufacture during Pax East. Fun story: we didn’t know it was him until he offered to get Double Kick Heroes as a t-shirt in No More Heroes! All the team was super excited and we were honored to be added into the game. Here’s the picture they recently showcased:

See you in Hell! (or ingame... as you wish!)

The HeadBang Club was awarded for the Double Kick Heroes soundtrack at the Ping Award ceremony, celebrating the best french games of the year!
We won the Best Indie Audio and mostly Best Audio awards, despite being confronted to the AAA french productions like Detroit: Become human, Vampyr & Life is strange 2!

These Awards are an acomplishment for our composer Frédéric 'Elmobo" Motte since he has written more than 100 game OSTs and produce over 50 Metal bands!

Remember to listen to the heavy soundtrack of DKH right here:

For now, the soundtrack already features some famous guests:
  • PJ666 from LOKURAH
  • Matt Dumas from HELL IN TOWN
  • Ludo Faraille from ANTHEUS
  • Fanalo from PLUGIN
  • Mathieu Pascal from GOROD
  • Olli Samsara from SAMSARA CIRCLE
  • Jay Kloeckner from SEVEN EYED CROW
  • Arno Strobl from CARNIVAL IN COAL

Don't forget to play these licensed songs in the HELLGATE (more to come):

  • The Scarecrow Paradox by THE FUNDAMENTAL WISDOM OF CHAOS
  • Cold by HELL IN TOWN
  • End Of The Day by ANTHEUS
