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.”

Dev Update: Balancing, New Skins and More


Hey everyone!

We've been very busy since the Beta and I can finally talk about what we've been up to and what we learned from it. Let's start with lessons learned, in no particular order.
  • The game was very hard for some of you and very easy for others. That's why we have difficulty levels but we will definitely have to make the difficulty selection more visible and introduce it when you start the game.
  • Pacing is annoying, even for those of you who didn't have a problem with difficulty. Spawning enemies all the time apparently isn't fun!
  • It was great to see all sorts of people playing. We had all kinds of players from all over the globe, from the US and Germany to China and Romania, from parents playing with their kids and friends playing together to solo warriors. This was really what we were hoping to see!
  • Most of you really liked the skins! We heard you loud and clear, more skins coming up. :)
  • More testing of the Beta build would have helped. We had some serious online connectivity issues which we didn't see at all in our in-house tests so we clearly need to update our testing process.
Now, on to what we've been doing!

In The Works
If you're on our Discord (and if you're not, what are you waiting for?! https://discord.gg/5cfetHm) you may have noticed this funny picture making the rounds.



Well, rest assured that's NOT what we've been up to.

The main focus in the last 3 weeks has been on difficulty and pacing. We made "Normal" difficulty a little easier, tweaked some parameters for the other ones but generally tried to keep the same level of challenge. We did however make bigger changes to pacing, in order to get rid of that feeling that enemies are constantly spawning no matter what you do. It's still the same pace when you're fighting to complete an objective but a ltitle less hectic while you walk from place to place.

The other part that we're now getting into is the revenge system. That's the star system and bar that you see during a mission. We know lots of you had trouble progressing because there was a huge penalty for dying and that just eliminated your star count. We're changing the way it works, and tuning it so that it's more fair and allows you to progress if you're doing a reasonably good job.

Finally, we've added lots of new hideout and part skins and kept plugging on the levels that were not in the beta build. Here's a sneak preview of some of the new skins.



Coming Up Next
There's lots more to tell but only so much space. We are polishing up all the levels, fixing problems large and small, adding more satisfying visuals for the level endings and finally started localizing the game!

More about that in the next update. For now I'll just leave you with a little teaser: we're close to finalizing our release plans and will make an announcement about that some time in April. Stay tuned!

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!
