What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Frankie's Revenge has been in development since 2016 and player feedback has always been an important driver for how we shaped the game. As we get closer to feature complete, we want to involve the community in the last stage of development, to get their help in balancing the difficulty and pacing, get feedback and hear their suggestions. We strongly believe that listening to your community is key to making a great game, especially multiplayer games that are meant to be shared.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“The core game is mostly finished and there's already lots of content to play. Development is always challenging and hard to predict, especially since we'll be listening to player feedback and adjusting our plans based on it. With that said, we do expect to launch the full game before the end of 2019.”

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

“We want to add more robot parts before releasing the final version, as well as more levels, items and a couple of additional features that will give players more challenges to pit themselves against and additional rewards. We will also be balancing the core combat parameters and robot parts based on community feedback and how we see players engaging with the game. The goal is to fine-tune the experience for both challenge and fun.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Frankie's Revenge has been in development for 3 years and is in an advanced stage. There are 20 robot parts with unique behaviors that can be mixed and matched to support different play styles. There are currently 14 missions, including two boss fights.

The game supports both online and local co-op multiplayer. We've tested it as much as we could but online games are always challenging and there might still be connectivity or stability issues in online multiplayer.”

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

“The price might increase when we leave Early Access but we are still considering this decision. It depends on the quality and amount of content we'll be adding during this time.”

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

“In the first 2 years of development we had a small community and relied on feedback from exhibiting the game at various events. Earlier this year we ran a closed beta and it was such a great experience! We saw lots of people playing and heard what everyone liked and what they were having trouble with directly from them. We've already implemented a number of changes based on that feedback. During Early Access, we plan to regularly post updates about the changes we're making and engage our community on Discord, where we hope they'll take an active role and contribute with suggestions on how to make the game better.”

Le Kraque Update!


Are you prepared? No, you are not prepared. The first major update is here!

Le Kraque
At the end of the second campaign and if you've gathered enough stars you will find an entirely new boss battle, even harder than Juicy Joe.

You'll need to be quick on your... err... lawnmower to defeat this monster and claim the title of Kraqueslayer. Gather your friends, oil up your Frankie parts and slay enough alien-infested robots to unlock Le Kraque's watery lair.

Be sure to post a screenshot if you're able to defeat this monster!

Official Localization Support

We've been working on localization for a while now and have gradually included more and more translated text as a soft launch. With this update, we finally have everything localized and officially support the following languages:
  • English
  • German
  • French
  • Italian
  • Spanish
  • Brazilian-Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Chinese
If your Steam client is set to one of the supported languages, Frankie's Revenge will start in that language. You can also explicitly change it from the Setttings menu (requires a game restart).

Better Level Endings
When we released in Early Access, some level endings were a little bit rough. We always planned to polish those up and make them a little more engaging. In the last minor update and in this one we've applied another layer of paint to the endings of Deadly Tides, Rising Waters, Smuggler's Cove and Nordic Crash.

We're working on other level endings as well and will be releasing them in future updates.

The Supporter Pack DLC

We're also thrilled to release the Supporter Pack DLC. It's a $9.99 add-on, filled with exclusive part and hideout skins, as well as novel personality items. The goodies are nice of course, but the pack is really intended for those of you who want to support us and help Frankie's Revenge become as big and bold as it can be!

And now for the good news: if you took part in our Beta test, you will receive the Supporter Pack FOR FREE as a thank you for helping us test the game before release. You'll receive an email with your Supporter Pack keys shortly.

Check out the Supporter Pack Page for more details.

Feedback Welcome
That's it for this update. As always, thanks so much for playing and let us know what you'd like to see in the next major update as we continue to develop and grow Frankie's Revenge.

Discord is the best place to reach us: https://discord.gg/5cfetHm

Le Kraque is coming! And future development plans.



Fearless fridges and boastful boilers, assemble!

It's time to talk about future plans for Frankie's Revenge as we continue growing the game in Early Access. Remember to jump on our Discord at https://discord.gg/5cfetHm, where we talk about these things regularly.

Update Schedule
Since launching on May 31st we released 3 patches, which were all about squashing bugs and small quality of life improvements like SFX volume tuning and highlighting newly unlocked parts & skins.

Most of our energy went into these bugfixes, especially the online connectivity issues that some of you have experienced. With the latest patch — delivered today — we believe that we've fixed the last problems related to creating and joining online games.

Thank you for your patience and for taking the time to report the problems to us. You're the best!

For the near future we intend to stay on the following update schedule:
  • a minor update every week, consisting primarily of bugfixes and small QoL changes
  • a major update every month, adding more content and features
We plan to follow this schedule for 3 months and then revisit it, to see if it still makes sense.



Le Kraque and Friends!
We're not entirely sure if he has any friends, but Le Kraque is definitely coming your way in the first major update, landing on the first week of July! If you thought Juicy Joe was hard, wait 'till you see the second boss battle. In the same update, we will also be adding official support for 7 different languages, more community balloons and — if we can squeeze them in — audio emotes!

Alongside this update we will also release a Supporter Pack, an exclusive cosmetic skin DLC that all our Beta testers can claim for free and will be available for purchase for everyone else.

Future Development Plans
After the July update, we will steadily add more Frankie parts. The core of Frankie's Revenge is experimenting with all of these components, so it's important that you have enough options to play around with. The Early Access launched with what we consider a minimal set of parts, and we will add as many of them as we can while we build up to the full release.

We're also exploring three major branches of expansion. None of the features discussed below are guaranteed to be in the final game but it should give you an idea of where we're heading.

1. Additional Game Modes
We've heard the calls for an "Endless Mode" from many of you and that's something we dicussed internally for a while now, alongside other mode ideas.

If this is something we'll decide to do, we will want to make sure we do it right. It should be fun first and foremost but it should also add something to the game like letting you compare to other players across the world or giving you a chance to win some exclusive rewards.

2. More Customization Depth
It would take too long to expand on this topic here, but the summary is that we're looking at ways to give you more control over which parts you unlock and more customization options.

Some ideas we're considering include replacing the level up & XP system with a crafting system, adding "mods" that improve or change the way parts function, or adding more customization slots.

3. Challenges & Extra Difficulty
The "Revenge Board" is a feature that we've already experimented with. It works like a career page that lays out all sorts of challenges (some with exclusive rewards) and shows all your progress, highlighting how badass you are. It would of course pair nicely with Steam Achievements but it would be much more than that.

Tightly related to this idea, is the option to have more difficulty levels. We're thinking about ways to add more difficulty levels without resorting to more number-bumping (increased enemy damage or health).

Is This Announcement Over Already? (TLDR)
In summary, we're commited to actively supporting and expanding Frankie's Revenge. Join our Discord at https://discord.gg/5cfetHm to tell us what else you'd like to see and share your thoughts about these plans.

Cheers!

About This Game

Team up with friends or allies and fight your way through hordes of alien-controlled robots that have overtaken Frankie's world of machines. Assemble your bots from the most unlikely household parts and create a party that complements each other's skills to become the ultimate gear crunching machine.


Build your Frankie by choosing a body, a head, two weapons and an engine from a variety of options. Use chainsaws, disco balls, tennis ball launchers and even a time-bending clock to get the look and playstyle that works for you. Then make it yours by unlocking skins, avatars and emotes.




In the honored tradition of twin stick shooters, Frankie's Revenge gives you challenging, satisfying combat but with unique emphasis on melee combat and experimentation. You'll need to master each part’s skills and how parts work together to survive the onslaught of Senior Cleaners, Foremen and Boilees. Only then can you even think about tackling Juicy Joe or the dreaded Le Kraque!




You can play with your friends in a local party or join others online in any mix you prefer. Or go all Rambo on those evil aliens and get revenge on your own!
