What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Eight Dragons isn't quite ready for a full release. We're a small team, and we don't have many testers, so we need a little help from keen players who are forgiving of a few issues in a mostly-complete game, and would like to help us take care of them.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We're aiming for a full release in August 2019.”

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

“As well as fixing the issues that players are finding in the game, we're also working on extra game modes, a fairly large new story path, and most importantly a way to play the game with your friends over the internet.

One of the lower priority things on our to-do list that we'd like to get to is supporting mods through Steam Workshop. There's a lot of potential there, but right now we're not sure how much demand there is for it!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now the Early Access version is fully playable, with three game modes - Story, Arcade and Score Attack. You can play any of the character's story paths, the Arcade mode with its fixed path, or try to beat everybody's scores on the leaderboards in Score Attack.”

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

“Price will not change when we leave early access.”

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

“Firstly, we're going to make a post at least once a week to keep you all up to date with our progress.

Secondly, we're going to be keeping a close eye on the forums. We really want to hear about the issues players encounter so that we can fix them. We'd also love to hear what you think of the game, what features you'd like to see, and what things you'd like to change. We can't put in everything that everybody wants, but we're not opposed to acting on good ideas!”

Update 4

While the coding side of our team is working on those big features we've talked about, the art side has started looking at improving the look and feel of the game. The first thing we've got to show you is in our latest update - the Downtown level has been drastically upgraded, with more and nicer things to look at and distract you while gang members try to beat you up...

There'll be more of this in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled!

Update 3

It's been a couple of weeks since the last update, but we haven't been doing nothing, despite how small this update is!

This update adds support for German, Russian, Spanish and Chinese languages. Yes, we know that won't affect most of our existing players, but we thought it'd be nice to let some more people play too! We're going to add more languages later on, but we thought we'd find out how badly we've done with this round of localisation before going any further...

That's not a huge change for two weeks of work, we're sure you'll agree. But that's because we're working on some quite big features that just aren't ready yet. We appreciate your patience - it'll be worth it!

About This Game

Crooked businessman KANE has taken over the city. Can the EIGHT DRAGONS take it back?

Using fists, feet and whatever weapons come to hand, the EIGHT DRAGONS must fight their way from one end of the city to the other, to reach their ultimate showdown. But each Dragon has a different path - it's only when they come together that their true destiny is unlocked, as their stories intertwine and the full epic fight is revealed!

Extreme Multiplayer

Up to eight people can play co-operatively on one PC, with any combination of controllers and keyboard!

Different Ways To Play

Each of the EIGHT DRAGONS has their own story, with its own route through the city and its own characters to fight on the way. In multiplayer, those stories combine and expand on each other.

If you're looking for a consistent challenge to improve against, then the Arcade mode will give you that - a fixed path through the game, with MR BIG awaiting you at the final level!

Play It Your Way

With adjustable game speed and difficulty, you can make the game as hard, easy, fast or slow as you like!
