Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We would like to enter Early Access to ensure that we provide a game that people can love. The Shotgun with Glitters team will put maximum effort into measuring up the needs of the community, involving players in the development process so that by the time of release we can come out with a well polished Moss experience that has as much of the errors ruled out as possible at this stage. In order to reach our goal, it is indispensable for us to hear our players and adjust gameplay and mechanics according to varying playstyles and feedbacks received.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to take our time to shape and form the game until we reach a state on which we can collectively agree is stable. While it's hard to define this time ahead, we estimate to come out of Early Access sometimes around Christmas 2018.”

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

“The full version of the game will have more of everything. In what way? That highly depends on the community. But we also have plenty of features outlined in mind to add to the palette. Such would be a well balanced combat system, new unlockable heroes with their own special abilities and mechs, a well composed and expansive looting system, new worlds to discover - patrolled by their very own nasty enemies, vicious bossfights, hip visual mech upgrades, some rare and badass special weapons, achievements, trading cards, the oh-so-sweet music and secrets! SECRETS EVERYWHERE!!!
The content is yet in brisk motion. We might as well turn the game into a bunny simulator?? Nah.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Right now the core gameplay of Moss Destruction is starting to form its final shape. The current version has 1 playable world swarming with its own unique enemies throughout 5 procedurally generated levels, the working basis of a well balanced combat and looting system, 1 hero and mech, 1 evil boss, a beginner stash of weapons, 15 available mech-tech upgrades, sweet, hand drawn in-game art and HUD and the intro beat. You've gotta love the intro beat!
Updates to come soon!”

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

“We plan to gradually raise the price upon leaving Early Access.”

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

“We will provide several platforms to enable constant communication between our community and the dev team. Throughout the development process we will stay open towards all kinds of opinions, monitor comments, gather feedback, learn and progress with the players. We plan to offer game design choices and conduct surveys to select the more favorable path to follow up. In exchange for the much appreciated involvement we can offer full, exclusive access to contents during beta test phase and hopefully other minor rewards. We would like to encourage everyone to interact directly with us, as we are keen on your ideas and will most likely incorporate the good ones into Moss Destruction.”

Introducing with Update 0.4 "It's a Bargain!": The Super Secret Secret Shop!

If lucky and persistent enough, you can now find the portals on levels of Moss Destruction which will teleport you straight to the merchant of exotic wares.

Here you will find 3 items picked randomly from a pool of many. These can be cartridges you can install into your mech to influence the gameplay for your benefits. You can find yellow, Global cartridges, which - once bought - will activate and grant a certain bonus or modification for you in all the runs that follow. You will also find blue Passive and red Active cartridges here. These can be installed into your mech before each run and depending on your choice of selection will change the gameplay accordingly for that run only. Selected Passive cartridges will do their magic on their own, no need to interfere, while selected Active cartridges can be activated by you during the run. These will most likely have a cooldown on them after each use.

Another thing you will find in the shop are new Mech Tech cards and Upgrade cards for existing Mech Tech already in your possession. If bought, these will automatically be shuffled into your mech tech deck from which you can randomly pick from with each new rank in the game.

Last but not least you will find new heroes you can buy at the merchant. Once unlocked, these heroes and their corresponding mechs will be available to pick at the beginning of runs.

Unlock as many of these as you can to find the modifiers and characters that suit your playstyle best!

Collect Krysol scattered around the maps to spend at the shop. You can also get more Krysol from some enemies killed, for completing special actions and combos. Note that while lingering around in levels after sunset is potentially more dangerous, it will also cause enemies to drop Krysol much more frequently! All Krysol you collect throughout runs will stay with you even after death. Keep collecting Krysol to boost your mech and overcome previously difficult challenges more easily next time!

What's up Guys!

As you can see, we've got a brand new and shiny cover image! You like it? We do. Time seems to be flowing for us here at the SwG HQ, having our hands full with Moss Destructions brand new world, the Blu Wilderness. Nevertheless we still still need to find time to patch up whatever seems to be leaking in the current build (Since when have days become so short??). Anyhows, here's what we got for you in

Update 0.3.4 "Dodge This!"

  • We made some much needed mods on most of the Mech-techs you can install, providing now a better balanced quarry of choice for you.
  • New achievements enter this time too! It will probably take serious skills to get "Right Back at You!". Can you pull it off?
  • Some refreshment for your eardrums: a remastered desert world track is playing now through your stay.
  • A whole lot of minor bugfixes yet adding up to a major elevation in experience :)

    Once again, thank you for your all your support and feedback, it means a lot in this process!

    Keep sending those and any other thoughts to contact@shotgunwithglitters.com

    Meanwhile, the new world, Blu Wilderness is neatly coming together. Even though it's not yet ready, we put most of our time now into building it and we cannot wait to show you the whole picture! Until that time comes, here's a sneak peek of what we've been up to and what is coming your way really soon:

    Don't forget to head over to the rewards section of BrightLocker to help us populate this wilderness! Look for "A Worthy Foe 2" reward!

    In hope to keep you thrilled until next time, best,

    The SwG Team

About This Game

The Mossorian Empire is dying. A once flourishing civilization spending their ever joyful lives in perfect photosynthesis has now been pushed to the brink of extinction. Their undisturbed prosperity has given birth to envy and hatred in the hearts of the neighboring folks who have sworn destruction of the Mossorians. With their forces allied, the enemy have prepared a vicious plan to annihilate the Empire and with the completion of their DieSun Sphere around the Mossorians only sun, the fate of a race will be sealed forever.

Hope is but the last thing to die, for a handful of fearless Moss-warriors are ready to stand up to the challenge. Hopping into their battle mechs, these reckless heroes serve as the last line of defense for the Mossorian Empire. Can they stand against the joined forces of evil? Will they defeat them and save their own kind? That is yet up to you to answer!

  • Fight against the evil forces of exotic creatures as the hero of your choice!
  • Level up your mech on the way as you face wilder and nastier adventures!
  • Find your way around the isometric, procedurally generated levels! No two runs are the same!
  • Aid yourself along the rogue-like fast paced action with various upgrades!

  • Select your weapon of choice from an arsenal of guns!
  • No, more guns!!!
  • Defeat humongous bosses in strange lands!
  • WITH GUNS!!!!
