Dash Blitz is currently an unfinished game.
If you don't mind that, then by all means, please enjoy this game.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

Unfortunately I can make no promises as to when or if Dash Blitz will be finished. You should make your decisions based on the game's current state.”

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

“Currently there are no plans to change the price. If development resumes, it may increase, but currently it will remain static.”

Hiatus


Obviously it's been a while since the last update. Sorry. Even though it's hard working as a one-man team, I really love this game, I love working on it, and I would love nothing more than to keep sharing it and other games for the rest of my life.
Unfortunately, as I've said before, life gets in the way sometimes. I've been putting off this announcement for a while and tried to keep my personal issues out of it, but I have to be realistic.

Dash Blitz won't be updating for the foreseeable future. For the past year now, I have been wrestling with some serious pain in my hands that's proved difficult to diagnose and treat. Much as I've wanted to keep developing and putting this crazy game into new players' hands, that passion and enthusiasm has proven to be my downfall and made my condition a lot worse.
On top of that, I sank a lot of time into developing Dash Blitz, which really ate into my finances. It reached a point where I had to return to work full-time. Luckily I'm still able to work, but I need to make sure that I stay that way, and frantically coding during my downtime is no longer an option. I'm actually writing this message with a speech to text program just to keep my hands away from the keyboard, which is every bit as frustrating as you can imagine.

I'm not saying any of this to look for sympathy. I'm doing fine, and even if it's been hard, there's not a single thing I would have done differently. I just want to set the record straight.
To reiterate, Dash Blitz v0.6 is not in development right now, and there's no current plans to return to it. The game currently on Steam Early Access should be considered to be the full game. If you still think it's worth your money, there's nothing I would love more than to have somebody enjoying this game as much as I've loved it. It's still my favourite fighting game, I know I'm biased but I truly believe there's nothing else like it.

Of course there's so much more that I want to do. All those promised characters, mechanics, more items, single player content, refined graphics and more. But I can't make that promise anymore. Maybe someday in the future, but right now I need to be honest with you.

Happy Blitzing, everyone. Sorry I have to dash for now.
I'm not leaving you without a little something, though. On the character select screen, try choosing #1 and pressing Swing, Jump, Jump, Up, Down, Swing. Make sure you do it quickly, or else the game might have second thoughts.

I hope you continue to enjoy Dash Blitz.

About This Game

It's time to blitz through the competition.

Dash Blitz is a fighting game based on classic run-and-gun platformers. The action brings players head-to-head at breakneck speed!
Combine lightning speed with perfect air control for a truly fast and fun movement system unlike any other.
  • Simple controls and accessible attack-cancels make for a game that's easy to learn, but hard to master. Enjoy the freedom!
  • Play as a large variety of original characters with a range of unique abilities!
  • Let your imagination run wild with a host of items and crazy stages, or keep it simple and focus on your combos! May the best fighter win!

Complete freedom of movement.

Dash Blitz is all about moving where you want, as fast as you can. It's easy to get started, but can you master the Transmission Era's fastest?
  • Scale the walls with rapid jumps! Dash under obstacles with lightning speed!
  • Don't let them get away - even in the middle of a midair vault, you maintain total control over your movement. Perfect for spacing out aerials!
  • No endlag, no worries! Virtually every attack can be cancelled. Just dash, jump or land, and you'll drop the attack and get back in motion immediately!
  • Never crumble under pressure - successfully blocking any attack lets you Blitz, making you invulnerable and giving you the chance to turn the tables! For a true contender, every attack is a window of opportunity.

The year is 1410, Transmission Era.

Humanity has prospered thanks to instant transmission technology, and forgotten much of what preceded them. Wide-spread nanite use has given humans superior physical capabilities, and what was once considered "augmented" is now the norm. The thrill of combat is the top sport across the globe, and advances in nanite technology have continued to push fighters beyond their limit. Humans now compete on even footing with their own creations - and often fight more fiercely.

Dash Transit Solutions, the top dog in transmission networks, are sponsoring the DTS Grand Prix - the first international fighting tournament the Transmission Era has ever seen.
They're offering a mountain of credits, international glory, and the chance to demo an advanced AI, Vizier, which they claim can answer any question.

20 fighters will claw their way through the qualifiers and board the DTS Satellite for the greatest contest of their life. Each of them chases riches, glory, something less savoury… or answers.
