What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Video Horror Society is our first free to play multiplayer game. We will be using Early Access as our period to establish our presence in the 4v1 genre, iterate on balance, and develop a cadence for the release of updates and future content. We know it will take a lot of iteration before the game settles down and we find exactly what works best. We want to be clear to our audience that they should expect significant changes through this process.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to be in Early Access no longer than a year.”

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

“The full release of Video Horror Society aims to have a fine-tuned competitive balance between Teens and Monsters in-game, a steady cadence of updates and improvements to core game systems, and a substantial amount of content for users to obtain.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“When it becomes available, our Early Access Beta will contain our collection of launch content, including 3 playable Monsters, 5 playable Teens, and 3 launch maps. As we proceed through the beta, updates will focus on gameplay balance, performance optimization, and core systems.”

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

“Video Horror Society is free to play, and will remain so after our launch. Any items available for purchase in the game will also remain at the same price after the game exits early access.”

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

“We will look for feedback through our Steam page and Discord server and we will implement changes and ideas that we think will make the game stronger.”

About This Game

Something Evil has arrived in the video store...

Abominations once confined to video store cassettes have escaped the tape and transformed into deadly reality. Experience pulse-pounding 4v1 combat amidst neon-soaked cinematic labyrinths where power shifts unpredictably between Good and Evil, but always ends in a fight-to-the-death climax fit for the silver screen.

Monsters follow a script that calls not only for death, but total domination. Be you the Werewolf-- brutal and swift, or the Doll Master-- creeping and conniving, you are designed to feast on fear, terrorizing your teenage prey relentlessly.

Teens scramble to flip the script with weapons fueled by ancient Stigma-- Burn, Shock, Curse, and Purify-- that extinguish Evil. Blast monsters with a faceful of Flame and Fury, dish out a killer jolt from your Raygun or RC Flyer, swing Cursed Swords and cast curses, and harness the glory of a Holy Slingshot or Cross.

Video Horror Society bleeds 80s horror, and if you’re not careful, you will too.

Fight Back or Die

The monsters of Video Horror Society are a tribute to over the top 80s horror where anything goes.
