What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Blink: Rogues was designed to be a PvP multiplayer game before anything else. While we've been present at different gaming gatherings since we started working on the game, we now want to involve more people in the creation and improvement of the game. We want to tailor the game to fit the players' needs and what better way to do that than to ask them directly to get involved. Early Access will give us the perfect opportunity to get first hand feedback from the players and see how we can grow the game to the best version it can be.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to keep releasing levels and features as development progresses until Spring 2019, when we intend to take the game out of Early Access.”

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

“Right now, the game has the local multiplayer PvP, Player vs AI and 4 levels in the Single Player campaign ready.

The end goal is to have:
- SINGLE PLAYER - 10 levels with story integrated
- multiple difficulty levels for the single player campaign
- COOP MODE - where you play with a friend and work together to make the best score
- SURVIVAL MODE - where you fight endless mobs for as long as you can resist

We would also like to add more ships, enemies and maps and more customization possibilities for the player in order to have a better defined strategic game-play. These are only the things we currently have on our To Do list, but they will most likely grow based on the feedback we receive from the community.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game currently has the following content:

1. SINGLE PLAYER - 4 playable levels with the story unlocking along with the levels
2. LOCAL MULTIPLAYER PvP - 5 minute time boxed matches where you go against your friend in order to gain the best score
3. PLAYER vs AI - 5 minute time boxed matches where you go against the AI, which has different levels of difficulty.”

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

“The price will at least double once the game is fully released. Our early adopters will of course receive all the new content by default, as they've been with us from the start and supported us to make a better game.”

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

“We've always tried to talk to our community and engage with them actively so this will be a trend we'll aim to keep. We'll do our best to keep an eye on Steam comments and answer them directly. We also have Facebook, Discord and Twitter pages along with the company's site. Through any of these channels, the players will be able to get their feedback sent directly to us and we will try to address them.”

There's a new BOSS in town!



One of the frequent feedback bits we got regarding the Single Player mode was that the gameplay could be improved, especially concerning bosses, so we moved that to the top of the update queue. Not gonna lie, creating and introducing new bosses is a fun process for us as well!

So here's the content of our second update:
  • VIBRANT NEW BOSS - for Mission 4: Pathfinding. It has Dual Sound Cannons and a Shockwave Power you might recognize from multiplayer matches. We hope you enjoy the challenge and we're waiting for your feedback!

  • INTERFACE & STORE LOCALIZATION - now available in Brazilian Portuguese, Simplified Chinese, French and Russian. Since we are not quintilingual please give us a shout if you encounter any translation mistakes.
Let us know what you think and mind the shockwaves!

About This Game

Blink: Rogues is a mash up in between classic Shmup and Arena fighting games. Everything is merged in an action packed, winner takes it all scenario, allowing you to either enjoy a Single Player Campaign or measure your skills against other players in PvP fights.

Blink: Rogues remains loyal to the top down vertical scroller genre, pursuing innovation through direct PVP mechanics, enabling you to jump into your opponent's screen and chase down a proper frag. Competition is enabled through a local Split Screen experience, joined by a Single Player Leaderboard system which allows you to compare your score against other players worldwide.

GAME MODES:

STORY:

The journey will take you through Lucius Ahalla's story, divided in four different chapters (10 at release), each filled with unique events that will have you ramming through hand crafted enemy formations.
Every aspect of the mission will be expanded through Memento Cubes, special units of storage that are scattered around the missions.
Gather them all to expand the story behind Ahalla's adventure!

PVP:

Player versus player mode will allow a mix of sharp reflexes and strategic planning. A duel will engage the players in a 5 minute split-screen PVP match, granting victory to whomever earns most points by the end of that time. Points can be earned either by shooting down enemy ships, or by chasing a frag in your opponent's screen. During the five minute match, you will have a randomized variety of enemy formations, equal in number of points, but always different.
