WE WANT YOU… TO PLAY THIS GAME
Ever play with those little green plastic army guys as a kid? Well, so did we. We just wanted to bring these guys back into 2024 and give them a make-over.
Yes, there have been a few games out there that feature these little plastic dudes, but we weren’t able to find any game with the mechanics we wanted. We wanted a huge, multiplayer Battle Royale with the same feel as Pub-G or Fortnite, but also have elements of Arma 2, Battlefield and COD franchises.
We’ve worked hard on getting the mechanics right, and staying true to the Battle Royale feel. Adding tanks, jeeps, helicopters, planes, controllable guns, turrets, parachutes and even grappling hooks and rockets, has really helped enrich the experience. We’ve also been working hard developing different weapons and classes for each soldier. Riflemen, Snipers, Heavy Machine-gunners, Grenadiers, Medics and Rocket Men are just some of the classes that we’re working on!
We’ve decided to go for the Free-To-Play model, so we can introduce DLC later on. We don’t believe in the whole “Pay-To-Win” concept, so don’t worry – we won’t ever do that to you. Any DLC released will be purely cosmetic. You’ll have to grind to build up tactical assets through in-game money that cannot be purchased with real money.
What we need to succeed
We’ve gotten pretty deep in the development of this game so far, but now we need to do a lot of optimization & multiplayer support… Funds will go to hiring developers, focusing on optimization and bringing on new artists to make this game look and feel amazing.
We’re aiming for the PC (Steam) Early Access version to be ready by May 2024. The Beta Playtest version is planned to be released in December 2023 (duration TBD). Although the Beta release of the game will be on PC (Steam only), we’re planning Xbox and PlayStation versions to come out shortly after the final release. We’ll make sure to have cross-play set up, so you can play with all of your friends, regardless of their platform preference. (We like to be inclusive like that!)
We’ll be updating everyone soon on the progress of the game, but in the meantime, check out the official RetroPixel Digital YouTube, Instagram and LinkedIn Pages. Consider sharing this and/or donating to the project or becoming a Patreon Patron! (This will help us Dev much faster!)
