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?

“Because to us an Online PvP game - even if feature complete - is still not ready, until it has enough active Players. We won't charge you while you need Discord to find matches.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Until our community has enough players to guarantee a solid match-making queue.”

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

“The next steps for Lil' Arena (coming months) include Gameplay Balance, Network Optimizations, Anti-Cheat, Juicier Animations, UI and Illustrations for the Lore.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Currently Lil' Arena has all of its core gameplay, 3 different maps to battle it out, and a Journey system where you progress to level 10 and unlock 20 Abilities and 5 Fighting Styles, while learning about the History of this World.

With our A.I. (bots) you can enjoy a couple of hours of solo play ; or you can jump right in, as our region-based servers are ready for you to play online by arranging matches via Discord.”

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

“Yes, but Not for You, Wandering Soul :)

Lil' Arena will be Free throughout its Early Access phase, and once Fully Released it will follow the model of "Pay Once, Own Everything" for around $20.

Achieve Battle Soul status by playing 5 Online Matches now, and keep the game for Free (including its updates) even after Full Release - because Thank You for supporting us!

So Play the Game, find us on Discord and let's get this party started :D”

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

“We acknowledge a simple fact ; Players and Developers don't exist without each other.

Our Discord Server is where we discuss, play and chat with our Community. At times we share screens, and let you take a peak under the hood. Other times we'll have an open brainstorming session about an ability. Or give you access to preview builds before uploading them publicly.

Let us feel what you feel with Lil' Arena on the Steam Community page - and let's turn this into an awesome Afterlife experience :)”

Your Feedback = Our Patch Notes !

Greetings Lil' Souls,

With the Afterlife Stable (loading, login, avatars), the community's main concern became "things are not clear enough". So it's time foooor…

Yes ! Patch Notes !

- Trials :: "What is it? How do I do it? What do I earn?" All very valid questions, that now have answers inside the game
- Abilities :: What do we want? Less Text! More Video! When do we want it? Now, it is done.
- Visual Settings :: There's two types of people in this world. Those who want V-Sync off, and the rest. A handful of settings exposed
- Key Bindings :: Parlez vous AZERTY? You can now remap all of your keys, including movement, camera controls, instant shield etc.
- Stun no more :: We've tweaked our combat a bit, to be less CC-dominated.

Thanks again everyone for helping us make Lil' Arena an experience you'd love to play!

Your Feeback matters to us, so head on to Discord at
https://lil-arena.com/discord and share your thoughts with us.

You'll be just in time for our Weekly Devs vs Player, this and every Friday at 18.00 UTC!

The Afterlife is Now Stable

So come aboard Lil’ Souls, tonight for our Weekly Friday Night Devs Vs Players.

More on that at our official Discord server.

All the annoying known bugs that bothered the on-boarding process of players, are now Fixed.

And.. With Patching Cherries on top:

- Trash Talk freely before the match!
Lobby chat is now a thing

- Handling disconnects gracefully
Before that when someone crashed, every player was stuck in the match but the match as not working ("already casting" etc.)

- Matchmake Globally, Play Locally (where applicable)
After the match is ready to start, we pick the optimal server based on everyone's ping to different servers.

- Teams are working again!
The mode may still be 'free for all' but why not take a frenemy with you? In the lobby, click your color to change it - players with matching colors are in the same team. Game works in exactly the same way, and your team's points are the average of its players, so if your teammate isn't playing well, you'll have to pick up the slack!

Next Up :: Better ability Synergy (Core gameplay improvements)

Looking always to improve according to your feedback, so feel free to share your thoughts and co-create Lil’ Arena with us!

See you in the Arenas

“Lil' Arena is an indie game, from Greek developers, who decided to give the world a multiplayer without the usual chores associated with the genre. [Translated]”
IGN Greece

“The character abilities are plenty, the story interesting and so 2-8 players can fill their time with a fulfuling battle, regardless of how busy their day-to-day life is. [Translated]”
Games Life
