What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

DASH: Danger Action Speed Heroes is a world consisting of user-generated levels. Early Access is perfect for building the database of epic levels prior to the official release. As a player during Early Access you will be shaping the world and leaderbords which will be the basis of the final release. We will use feedback and ideas for the implementations we wish to put in the game during this stage.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect DASH will be in the state of Early Access for a minimum of 5 months.”

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

“The experience in the full version should be based on the users efforts to create great levels and runs during Early Access. The Early Access build is based on the DASH Dev Team's and the community of already existing DASHers' levels and high scores.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Since fall 2018 we have been working on the servers, the gameplay, design and mechanics as well as audio effects and soundtrack. Everything has been shaped up to offer a full experience of both the creative as well as the competitive side. Everyone can join in and immediately create new worlds or challenge themselves in the Speed Leagues. Already now (March 2019) the game has a variety of tilesets, backgrounds, enemies, combos, power ups and last but not least heroes!! Keyboard or gamepad-based action and level editing. A very huge thank you to the DASHers on our Discord! (invite below)

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

“The final release will cost more than the Early Access release.”

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

“So far the community of DASHers have helped shape everything from the game mechanics, the UIs to (well, of course) the world we're running around in. This important part of DASH will hopefully continue in an even broader manner once the game officially launches in Early Access. The game's atmosphere is all about creating and sharing stuff which is what we are hoping the period of Early Access to be all the way. Together we will shape the game, the world and the leaderboards in the Galaxy of Speed. Welcome to DASH: Danger Action Speed Heroes.”

About This Game



Welcome to the simple and ever changing world of creative tools, tiles and challenges. DASH: Danger Action Speed Heroes is a 2D platformer which serves one goal: to make players create levels and clear them as fast as possible. There is no story. Just the right tools to create it!
The players create the levels, playlists and worlds for others to explore. The leaderboard will indicate which runners and creators are the best, the smartest and fastest among all. With a bi-weekly update cycle, the game will expand as new game modes, heroes and tilesets will be integrated. The DASHers have already created well over 250 levels ({LINK REMOVED})
