What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Together with WAZEN, we want to work with the community to create an amazing action game. We would like to share this process with the world in order to ensure this game gets the attention it deserves and as much feedback as possible. We feel that Early Access is the best way to achieve these goals.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect to finish gathering feedback and complete development in Fall 2018.”

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

“The development of the boss characters, additional stages, and Amelia mode is still ongoing. Over the course of Early Access, we will be adjusting various gameplay elements to ensure the best difficulty curve and overall user experience. We will also be optimizing the visual effects and game stability to ensure the game is complete by the final release. There is no DLC planned, so all these features will be available to everyone who owns the game.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We have decided to start Early Access by featuring the game's two leads, Asaru and Kanoko! In the first stage of the game, the player will be able to get a feel for the combat and encounter the first main boss, Officer Diamond. We feel this will be a good introduction to the base gameplay experience and give the player a feel for how we want to build upon it going forward.”

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

“In order to support the dedicated fans who are excited for this title, we will be offering a discount for purchasing the game early. Together, we can see Assault Spy grow and make this year a memorable one for us all!”

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

“We will be starting Early Access with only the core gameplay in order to begin collecting feedback early on. We would like to hear everyone's opinions about game balance, Asaru's moveset, issues encountered during gameplay, or even your favorite parts of the game! Show us your best combos! Race through and give us your best times! Help us fine-tune this game and together, we can make Assault Spy the best indie PC action title of the year!”

A New Agent Infiltrates the Dojo



Agent Amelia Hits the Dojo

The game's second playable character, Amelia, is now available to try out in Dojo mode!



Where Asaru's playstyle involves high-speed dashing and well-timed JUST moves, Amelia is a brawler with an aggressive play style. Make use of the invincibility she has on her attacks and get right up in your foes' faces!



Practice her moves now, so you're ready to hit the ground running once her story mode is available!

New Death March Mode

With this new update, we've added a new challenge mode to the game!



Death March is a mode where you fight your way through floor after floor of enemies as a timer ticks downwards. You gain more time for each enemy you defeat, and the higher your battle rank, the more extra time you’ll get! There are no checkpoints, so if you get a Game Over or run out of time, you’ll start over from the beginning.



Smash your way through battle after battle as fast and as stylishly as you can!

Guard Break

A new Guard meter has been added to bosses and certain (tougher) enemies. Attacking these enemies from the front enough times will stagger them and allow you to go to town with your deadliest combos!





However, take note that their Guard meter will regenerate shortly afterwards, so go all-out while you can!

Keyboard/Mouse Support Improved

You can now rebind keys when playing in Keyboard mode. It also supports most non-English characters as well! :)

More Dojo Mode Options

When in Dojo Mode, you can now press the Select button to call up a menu with additional options.

New Move for Asaru: Brainstorming Buster

Asaru's Y+B move has been updated from previous versions of the game.



Brainstorming Buster starts by slamming your unfortunate foe's head into the floor with a German Suplex, then rockets into the air with them, and finally drives them headfirst into the ground at high speeds (you professional spies out there may know this part as an "Izuna Drop")!

Bugs Terminated

To make for a smoother spy experience for you, more bugs have been combo'd into oblivion!

THE FINAL BOSS IS LEGIT AND MORE FUNCTIONALITY!



Another update has been added to the Early Access build for Assault Spy! This update includes the final boss and thrilling conclusion to Asaru’s side of the story along with several quality of life additions that allow you to get right back into the action!

Check out a few of the key updates below:



Executive Area:
After completing the Back Lot stage, you’ll finally reach the Executive area, where the masterminds behind the terrorist takeover have been hiding.., there is a new enemy you are to fight in this area but they have not been created yet. The current enemies in this area are a placeholder for now. However, please look forward to the final boss that has been added into the Executive Area.

Epilogue:
When the final boss is defeated an ending cutscene will play. When this ending cutscene is complete, a “clear game flag” is added to your save file and you will be returned to the main menu. A ★ will appear next to your save file to show that you have completed the adventure! If you continue from this save file, you will start at the beginning of the prologue.

Updated Function:
A new function has been added to the Options Menu that will let you automatically skip cutscenes so you can get right back into the action!



Thank you to all who have been playing through the Early Access version of Assault Spy so far! We are happy to have been able to improve this game so far thanks to your feedback and we are excited to continue working with you to make Assault Spy the best that it can be! Stay tuned for more updates in the future and we look forward to improving the game with you then!

To those who have not joined in just yet—don’t worry! You can still join Early Access now on Steam for a special discounted price for a limited time! Help take back the Negabot corporation today!

Story


Asaru:
Asaru Vito is a self-proclaimed elite company spy.
However, because he always ends up paired with the clumsy Kanoko Yotsuba, most of his missions are failures. His performance hit rock bottom…
Just when things couldn’t get any worse, he was assigned to spy on the global mega corporation, Negabot. Even with the worst partner ever, he now has to work at a major company, so the worst has yet to begin for Asaru!

Amelia:
The company has been taken over by terrorists!?
OK, let me take a swing at them!!!
