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 have reached a point where the game is fully playable, and we want to involve the community to make it better, from balancing to game design choices. Early access allows us to engage directly with the community and thus make the best possible game together.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Approximately 6 months, but that could vary depending on feedback.”

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

“We have a pretty ambitious roadmap for Killsquad, but of course that can change depending on the feedback of the community. This is what we'd love to do:

- More of everything: we're planning more monsters, more weapons, better balancing.
- New heroes which we will roll out progressively, 2 more in the next 6 months.
- New contract types: rescue missions. Holding positions, and many more
- We're prototyping coop vehicles.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Current game contains 40 contracts across 3 planets, 4 heroes, 40 weapons, approximately 30 enemies, all to a final state. We will tweak balance, missions, texts, cinematics.”

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

“At this point we are not thinking about price policies as our focus is experience and community involvement. That said, most likely price will rise after the full release.”

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

“We are going to track community feedback via analytics, forums, a Discord channel, and all our social media and drive future features based on it. We think at this point your opinion is really what matters more than ours.”

To our friends in Korea, Japan and China

Hello,

Sorry to write in English, but I want this message to be very precise. This is a special announcement for our Asian friends:

China

Killsquad is out in China, with full Chinese translation. We hope you like it a lot. Translation was done by a Chinese company. If you detect any errors on the translation:
  • Sorry sorry sorry! We do our best, but errors can happen.
  • Please report them to killsquad@novarama.com so we fix them quickly.

Korea and Japan

Killsquad comes with full Korean and Japanese translation during next week. These two translations are taking a bit longer, so:
  • Sorry for the delay. Totally our fault.
  • We hope you will enjoy it when it comes out

Let's work together!

We would love our Asian friends to discover the game. Are you a streamer? curator? youtuber? Do you play games live? Please contact us at killsquad@novarama.com, and we will give you keys to the game.


Novarama is a firm with strong ties to Asia:
  • We are an independent team. But part of the art on Killsquad was done in China by our friends at Original Force 3D in Nanjing
  • We have worked for Sony for over 10 years. We love Japan and its culture.
  • We presented Killsquad last year in G-Star in Busan, Korea. In fact, we consider Killsquad our tribute to Korean-style RPGs

We hope to receive your approval with our translation, and that we have built a game the whole world can enjoy!

非常感谢你们
대단히 감사합니다.
どうもありがとうございました
Thank you very much

Novarama

Killsquad at E3 2019



We are happy to announce that KILLSQUAD will be at E3 2019 June 11th to 13th in Los Angeles. We will be in full force with a fully playable 4 player coop contract on Wasteland07. Come say hi at the Indiecade Booth (#5200 West Hall). And, if you survive, take home some KILLSQUAD goodies.

About This Game

This is not the future you dreamt of. The Galaxy is in chaos, planets go rogue, and mega-corporations assemble Killsquads to raid whatever riches and bounty are left. Welcome to Killsquad: a hardcore action RPG done by hardcore RPG fans. A game that blends the best of the genre and presents a new universe for you to discover. Set up your team, choose your heroes, weapons and gear, and unleash hell on a fast-paced battle through hordes of monsters and deadly bosses.

KEY FEATURES



HIGH INTENSITY GAMEPLAY


Killsquad looks like an RPG but plays like an action game. This creates a unique gameplay style you can enjoy with a keyboard or gamepad. Our focus is on short, adrenaline pumping missions you can enjoy solo or 4 player coop.


CHOOSE AND CUSTOMIZE YOUR HEROES


Play as any of the four unique space bounty hunters, each with a class and a skill tree you unlock as you progress. Each is highly specialized, and has a set of starting skills and passive abilities. Then, on each level up, you get an opportunity to customize your character with new skills to adapt to your play style.

A COMMUNITY OF BOUNTY HUNTERS


Killsquad is a game designed for the community: contracts are offered in real time for squads to embark on. Sign up for a contract with your squad, or join other bounty hunting squads who need help. Compete with all squads worldwide to earn contract rewards and progress on the game Meta on an ever-evolving universe.

THE PLANET IS YOUR ENEMY


Our planets are built on the fly, so each mission is designed to be highly replayable. And they come with a selection of nasty surprises: from meteor storms, to minefields, from huge bosses to an assault by the Federation Forces, our planets want to make sure you understand you're not welcome here.

A RICH UNIVERSE


The Killsquad universe is rich and expanding: dozens of weapons for you to unlock, alien races you can browse in our encyclopedia, resources you can collect and then use to unlock exclusive perks for your weapons... and more coming soon!
