What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We’ve put a lot of time and love into developing our action-packed competitive party game. We’ve got a fairly polished game, but at this stage, we just need to throw the doors open to players so that they tell us if we’re heading in the right direction.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We’re planning around 6+ months. After that we’ll hopefully release the full game on PC and consoles.”

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

“We’re planning to add at least:
  • New game modes, characters, skins, and arenas.
  • Single player and other new modes
  • Loads of mutators
  • Achievements and Steam cards
  • MORE SYNTHWAVE and announcer dialogue

We’re also managing our resources so there’s room to work on suggestions from the community -- even big, crazy stuff! We can’t wait to see what they come up with.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The core gameplay is fundamentally solid. There will be bugs, but hopefully nothing that will get in the way of fun. In the early days we expect there will be balance issues that you can only truly unearth by getting the game into players’ hands.

The day one content includes:
  • Online and local multiplayer for 2-4 players
  • Six unique characters with their own skills and weapons.
  • Eight arenas with their own unique mechanics.
  • Progression system with skin and arena unlocks.

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

“Yes. We are releasing the game in Early Access at 14.99. Throughout EA we'll be adding stacks of new content. It will be a bigger game, offering hours of galactic entertainment! The full release will be priced at 19.99.”

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

“We’ve got some ideas for where we could take Hot Shot Burn in the future, but we want the players to be our guide. Initially we’ll be asking for their feedback on general gameplay, balance and bug reporting.

And then in the near future we’ve got a chunk of dev time with the community’s name on it. We want them to tell us what to do. More characters? Sure. Co-op horde mode against ravenous picnic tables? Let’s do it.

We’ll always be listening and reaching out on Steam Forums, Discord and anywhere else you see the HSB logo.”

“Excited for the day when I can get my friends and family together and blow them up with a puffed up fish monster, talking smack the entire time.”

“This isn’t a game about strict competitive play, where skill tops all. It’s about stupidity, ridiculous kills, massive rubber-banding, and having fun with friends — and that’s just fine by me.”
PC Invasion

“My experience at PAX West has firmly put this one on my radar as one of the party games I’ll want to break out when friends stop by.”

About This Game

Gladiators! Welcome to the bloody arena, where paper beats rock, rock beats scissors and shotgun beats everything else!

Hot Shot Burn is a top-down, hilariously violent party brawler where space gladiators compete in the galaxy's ultimate televised blood sport. Grab some popcorn, invite up to 4 friends, and experience crazy couch battles full of ridiculous flukes and insane skill shots.

Can't invite friends to come over? No problem! Just set up a game night and seamlessly play online.

Pick your hero, from an ass-whooping space wrestler to deadly moth assassin and one very confused fluffy alien. Each character has unique skills and playstyles, so find your match and get ready to explode your friends and loved ones for a galactic audience of screaming fans.

  • Fast-paced, unpredictable multiplayer action for 2-4 players
  • Play on the couch, online, or both!
  • Loads of arenas, each with unique hazards and rules
  • Feel the effects of powerful mutators that can warp reality and turn a match on its head.
  • Vibrant art style inspired by Saturday morning cartoons
  • Powered the thumping tunes of SYNTHWAVEEEEEEE!

A spectacular intergalactic show!

It's showtime! Fight and die in front of a live studio audience as you take part in the ultimate gladiator battles. The audience cheers! The commentator makes fun of your tights! A good time is had by all! (All the survivors, I mean…)

Win at all costs!

We all know that you're here to win, so why bother with "fair play" or "the laws of physics"? Teleport, become invisible, bounce bullets off walls, shoot bullets through walls - whatever it takes to make sure you're the last one standing. All's fair in love and space gladiator arena combat.

Post Launch Support

Think you'll get bored with the same old arenas and characters? Well first, you're wrong. Second, we're going to regularly update the game with patches and new content based on your feedback. And because we love watching you kill each other more than we love money, they'll always be free!
