What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe input from the community is the most important aspect of video game development, and want to give players the chance to participate in the evolution of the game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We want the community to help us shape the game, so an exact date is very hard to pinpoint. That being said, we feel that Q3 2018 is a very reasonable estimate for the full release.”

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

“We will mostly be focusing on adding lots of content to the game, including:

  • Different Environments, each featuring their own style and obstacles
  • Lots of new Abilities
  • Achievements
  • Steam Trading Cards and Achievements
  • We are open to suggestions and ideas from the community, so please tell us what you want!

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, with:

  • 2-8 Player Multiplayer
  • 4 Different Maps
  • 7 Different Abilities
  • Powerups
  • Lots of customization options
  • The ability to strategically compose your own set of abilities

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

“Yes. During Early Access, we will be offering a 50% discount on the game.”

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

“Feedback from the community is very important when developing a game, so we want to hear what everyone thinks. We will be actively listening to the players so they can join us in shaping and perfecting the game.”

Scuttlers 0.7.2 Patch Notes - Controller Support!

Controller Support for Runners

You can now use a controller to run around when playing as a Runner. The game should automatically recognize your controller and you should be good to go (Obviously this also works in solo challenges).

You can also assign any other buttons on your controller in the controls menu (this was already possible, but it seems like a good time to remind you!)

  • Total distance travelled statistic should now be more accurate.

User Suggestions

Just like we mentioned last time, if anyone has an idea how controller support would work with the Leader role, let us know!

Scuttlers 0.7.1 Patch Notes

Death Messages

You'll now see different chat messages when other players die, so everyone is always aware that you messed up. No more hiding from it!

Haunted Achievements

Achievements have been added for the haunted environment, analogous to the Forest achievements.

  • The music no longer messes up when going from a haunted environment to a forest challenge.
  • Some errors with Steam Achievements synchronisation have been fixed. We're still not sure if everything is working correctly, so we'll keep an eye on this one.
  • Fixed a few spelling errors.

User Suggestions

Before adding more content, we're currently mainly looking to finish and clean up some of the current content. An example of this would be controller support (how would the leader work with a controller?). We'd like your feedback on this, so we know what to focus on. Let us know in the comments!

About This Game

Scuttlers is a Multiplayer Asymmetric Platformer where you race your friends to the finish, avoiding different types of traps and obstacles. Every round, players are assigned either the Runner or the Leader role.

The aim of the game is very simple: Runners must reach the end of the map as fast as possible, while the Leader uses abilities to stop them from doing so. At the end of each round, points are given based on the players' performance. The player with the most points after the last round wins the game.


  • 2-8 Player Multiplayer
  • Race across hand crafted maps littered with obstacles such as platforms, circle saws and more
  • Cast abilities including meteors, wind gusts and mines
  • Pick up crystals to grant temporary boosts like shields and heals
  • Customize your Scuttler and impress your friends with your style
  • Strategically compose your own set of abilities to create the best combos
