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’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!”

HELLGATE UPDATE Incoming > Ultra Vomit + Hell In Town +Fundamental Wisdom Of Chaos

We have to tell the truth, we hid something from you. When we announced the Hellgate Update last week, we wanted to keep the surprise. One of the biggest French Metal band called Ultra Vomit will be playable in the Hellgate with their song Kammthaar. Remember we’ll also get the excellent The Scarecrow Paradox & Cold as well! (they’re super awesome songs!)

We will be live-streaming with Manard (Drummer of Ultra Vomit) on Thursday 30 May, 8.30pm GMT+1 on Twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/djboucherie). The update will be live in the afternoon.

Reminder of what the hellgate is

To show you a glimpse of the Hellgate levels, here they are:

Also remember that we’ll have shittons of bugfixes, ui improvements, the infinite mode alpha… so get ready to unleash HELL!

See you Thursday!
Tavrox, CM
