What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Battle Splash is my solo project from 2012, with the aim is to create a multiplayer game that is Fast, Intense and Exciting without any need of violence so that everyone, regardless of ages, can enjoy. The game is nearly completed, with almost every features intended. However, there are still many things that needed to be considered before the final version - from Game Balancing, Graphic Update, Content Update to Optimization and Bug Fixes. Since I want the game to be played in many different ways, and to be Fun, Epic and Friendly as possible, community input is very important. Therefore, Early Access is a perfect opportunity for me to get feedback from the community and to further polish/improve the game with better gameplay and cool new features.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“I intended to finish the game in approximately a year or less, as the game is designed to be as balanced and performance friendly as possible. There is also about Modding Supports, Content and Design Direction for this game, which will take a lot of time to develop/consider.”

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

“The final release should be more stable and more enjoyable than the Early Access version. Furthermore, new features/content such as Maps and Modes will be featured in the Final Release. Also, modding support will be further improved, so that everyone can make use of as much Battle Splash's features as possible.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version already contains all features in Battle Splash, including all gameplay features, 4 playable maps, 3 different playing modes, etc... The only thing missing is Full Modding supports (as only characters modding support at the moment), which will be released when the game is near completed. In short: it is considered as Stable release, although there might be unforeseen bugs/glitches during gameplay. However, I will make sure that players won't have many issues with every update.”

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

“The price for the game might change during its development stage. However, I do want to make sure that the game price will be reasonable.”

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

“Battle Splash is big for me, so every feedback counts. I'm always happy to listen to any constructive feedback since it provides valuable idea that helps me further improving the game. Please understand that not all feedback will be implemented since there are a lot of constraints for me, but at the very least, I'll read them, and I'd be very appreciated.”

Team Tactics Expansions
The Team Tactics is a game mode which focus greatly on your team's composition, player skills, and a good tactic. Now, you can extend the mode by changing the "Life Count" property when creating new server. Now you'll have more life per round!


Performance optimization
Battle Splash is going to be multi-threaded soon. Although not much of the game will be multi-threaded, it does somewhat stabilize the frame-rate, thus result in better game play.

Happy Splashing everyone! :steamhappy:

About This Game

"A mixture of inspirations from Team Fortress 2, Doom, Quake, and even Overwatch, using only Water Splashes. Every part of the game redefines the Shooter genre."

Trianga's Project: Battle Splash 2.0 (or Battle Splash 2.0 for short) is an Epic Fast-Paced, Bullet-Dodging, Competitive, Team-Based Third Person Shooter that Creatively Redefines the Shooter Genre with No Killing, No Blood, No Violence, and full Water Splashes Physics. Fight against Dozen of Enemies, Dodging thousands of Bullet while facing off Giant Robot, all At-The-Same-Time! Your Class may be your Fate, your Actions and Skills may change your Destiny, yet your Tactic will shape your Path to Victory!



Battle Splash tells a story about Trianga Polyga, who created a Virtual/Augmented Reality system that could simulate real-life experience/environment in an enclosed area, called "Brainwave Oriented Simulation System (or B.O.S.s)". She then wrote "Battle Splash", a game inside B.O.S.s that features high speed Water Balloons and Water simulation in order to create the most intense Squirt Gun Battle ever. She then invited her friend (Temiko Kangara), her cousin (Pentaga Polyga) and her sister (Quadra Polyga) to test the game out. After an unexpected journey due to a bug during the test, she then further improved the game, and made the second version of it: "Battle Splash 2.0".

The game is designed to be as Easy to Play as possible, while still keeps the best features of Classic Arena Shooter and Class-based Shooter. Battle Splash's gameplay heavily relies on Water Splash Mechanic, which changes the shape of the Splash Explosion depending on the surrounding area. In addition, the game is fully Physics-based, leading to Ballistic Bullets, Bouncing Balloons and lots of Physics features, thus feel free to perform some "Redefined" old tricks from Arena Shooter such as Bullet Dodging, Rocket Jump or Balloons Hop.

For even more diversity in gameplay, player can take control of the 4 playable Characters, which represent 4 different Classes in the game. Each character has their own Stats and Abilities that when combined with each Weapon they can further improve their performance or change their role in battle in real-time. Weapons' behavior can also change in real-time thus even more combinations can be carried out.

However, without a proper Tactic, your Victory cannot be ensured. Carefully Organize your team, Analyze necessary information, and Carry out your plan perfectly are the keys to success. There are many Paths players can take in order to achieve the Ultimate Victory. Be Flexible, or be Determined, or be Open-minded about your Approaches.

Key Features:
  • Fast, Intense, and Challenging gameplay.
  • The game is Epic even when no one dies, no one gets hurts, no violence.
  • Water Splash mechanic: water splash will bounce off the surface upon contact, changing the shape of the Area of Effect.
  • Run to Dry mechanic: The faster you move, the faster you recover/dry up.
  • Bullet Dodging mechanic: No cover, just dodging!
  • Dynamic Weapon Loadout System: Changing Weapon's behavior in real-time.
  • 3 totally different game modes.
  • Different Maps mean different Environment Mechanics.
  • Play as you like: All Basic Weapons are available for all Characters.
  • 4 Classes with different stats and distinct Special Abilities.
  • Maximize your Class's performance, or Adapting your Class's abilities according to the Tactic, or both: Your Decision.
  • Challenging AI players that can adapt to your performance and push your skills to the limit.
  • Everyone can start their own Public/Private Server and enjoy a seamless match with Drop-in/Drop-out mechanic.
  • Don't worry about Ping: some tests indicated that even 700ms Ping can play the game seamlessly.
  • Support up to 4 teams per PC/Map/Server.
  • Support up to 24 players/AIs (for minimum system requirement) and 32 players/AIs (for recommended system requirement) per PC/Server. Better rig/network connection can push the players/AIs limit beyond 32.
  • Partial Modding supports.
  • Vast and colorful Environments that take places anywhere possible.
