What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“In order to deliver the highly polished fighting game experience we all want Topdown Showdown to become, we're going to have to spend some time in early access polishing every single corner of the game, making sure simple features like controller setup, options menus, and game balance are all top notch.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Once the game is as polished as it can be, the plan is to do a full release some time between October 2017 and December 2017.”

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

“The full version is going to include a more polished interface for options and controller setup, designed to make controller setup as easy and seamless as possible. In addition, more unannounced single player content and game customization options will be included, and of course a balanced roster.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version features a complete story mode with 30 chapters and 4 bonus chapters, local multiplayer, online multiplayer, 16 characters, a filled out options menu, multiple stages, multiple bonus stages, and is just in need of some polish before release.”

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

“No, the game will stay the current price, so as you play, the quality will only be increasing for the same low cost.”

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

“Our discord server is active and passionate, and we love accumulating new members. Every single weekend until release, an online tournament will be held with occasional prizes and prestige in order to foster the growth of the community.”

About This Game

Topdown Showdown is the first of its kind- a highly polished smash inspired fighting game with a top down perspective. Dodge, combo, and knock your opponents out of the arena, from any angle! The game's extremely easy to pick up and play: your dodge roll functions as a jump button that helps you get back on stage, and each character has a complete, compact, but unique kit of moves and abilities to use to send your opponents flying.

  • Choose from a roster of 16 characters in local or online versus play.
  • Fast, aggressive game-play style designed to promote diverse and skillful combos hidden beneath a simple control scheme
  • The single player story mode features 30 chapters in which you battle versus a wide variety of unique challenges. Each chapter also has an optional red coin to collect and will record your best time, meaning you can compete with your friends for the faster story mode completion!
  • Fight in bonus modes that mix up the core gameplay such as one hit KO, Souls(adds a stamina bar), Falls(adds sidescroller style gravity), Space(all offstage!), Race(get 3 laps to get a super!) and more!
