What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“CRUSH has been in development for over 3 years. Along they way it has garnered a small following of 1100+ from Gamejolt, with the early builds being rated 4/5. I think an Early Access release through Steam will be a great a tool to help this game's potential and be another mile stone toward it's completion.

CRUSH wouldn't be where it's at now without it's players making video reviews and sending me feedback. Steam EA will open more doors to hear opinions and make a better game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“3-6 Months.”

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

“The full version of CRUSH is planned to have more arenas, weapons, and enemy types.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game has been recently updated with 4 arenas, 3 bosses and a new art style. 2 player is available.”

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

“The price will stay the same at $5. But if sales pick up I would like to develop an expansion pack at $3.”

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

“Salt & Pixel is a small company. I'm open to suggestions and value the opinions of our players. If there is something you don't like or something you want to see. Send a message or create a discussion.”

About This Game

CRUSH is a classic twin stick shooter game with a heavy focus on arena fighting. Inspired by SMASH TV, visuals and game play were created to capture the authentic retro feel. Play as a contestant (in single player or local co-op) on the greatest show on earth. You will navigate through multiple arenas, acquire new weapons, use powerful items, and win amazing cash and prizes... The only problem is, you have to survive. CRUSH is currently in development and available as early access.

  • Fight your way through hundreds of psychotic enemies who only want one thing... your death.
  • Survive by collecting weapons and power ups.
  • Take on the arena alone or with a friend.
  • The latest in beautiful pixel graphic hardware.
  • Easy to learn, hard to master bullet hell gameplay.
