GREENLIT \M/
Dear Metalheads, Thrashers, Badasses, Zombie Pounders and other Double Kick Lovers.


We are thrilled to announce that Double Kick Heroes was greenlit on April,8th.
We poured a ton of energy in the Greenlight campaign. It paid off as we rocketed to the #10 spot and totally blown away our own expectations.
As always, the support of the community was decisive, big thanks to you! Annnnd the campaign also revealed that even people stumbling on the page out of the blue were really metal’ed by the game. And that is definitely a good thing as it helps us to consolidate trust and gather an expert workforce for the game.

Beyond that victory, let’s tell you what we dug these last days :
  • We are initiating a side quest with Elmobo, to see how we could schedule voice acting for all the dialogs for a fair indie price. That is a long and arduous quest for Elmobo, so let’s wish him success, my #preciousss.
  • We settled the world map problematics with a good brawl and kicked in the mockup process.
    Blackmagic shown the team the current Rhythmic Gameplay prototype with grenades and snipers. Tavrox has still griefs against bashing possibilities,so we’ll make up something. Gyhyom and Elmobo were pleased even though the poor Elmobo was not able to achieve 65% of his “Hellish Elmobo Level”. The level is basically moving squares with crappy assets so nothing artsy for you dear reader but trust us, there will be Harcore challenges for all the Technical Death players out there.
  • We agreed to inject more fun in level design patterns, there will be regular rhythmic levels with KSC ( Kick, Cymbals, Snare ) and some experimental ones, more on this later as we finish our prototypes but expect the Cadillac to steer on the highway.
  • We agreed on how to the pimp the Cadillac. Band members will be able to equip stuff and modify their gameplay. Mockup session scheduled for later this spring.
  • We converged on the influences of the chapters, the band style, the characters we want for the game. There will be many kinds of metal and especially the ones we all headbang to :). Heavy, Death, Thrash, Melodic, Indus, Djent, Nu, Experimental. Some deadly pogo sessions should be a nasty possibility.
  • We finalized a deal with an American editor to have the best script ever written for a Rhythm game #noshit.

We’ll keep you posted every month. Please be aware the first private beta stages may start early summer and we will pick beta testers among newsletter followers, so please register at http://doublekickheroes.rocks , it’s important for us to be able to get to your ears efficiently.

Shoot zombies by beating the keyboard the way you’d beat a drumset. Double Kicking is the name of a drumming technique to speed up the music. But it's also the name of a deadly weapon you will have to master to survive. Grab your keyboard and let's beat it to death!



The band members are Lincoln, Snake, Derek, Randie and James. They love Metal and can't spend a day without it. Each one of them is a unique, cunning, metal player. They live in an apocalyptic world where their favourite Rock stars are scattered all around the world. Discover their story and their hidden truths.



We are big fans of Rock and Metal ourselves. We guarantee we will stay true to that. You will be able to upload and import your own music and challenge your friends on these. You made a great tune with insane difficulty? Let’s play it together.

Double Kick Heroes is made by Headbang Club, a game dev band created to rock your socks off. Among us, there are BlackMagic, Gyhyom, Elmobo and Tavrox. We are french game developers who worked on many games such as Nightmare Creatures, Alphabounce, Lavapools, Mush and Rock Faller. Elmobo is a metal musician and producer managing Conkrete Studio, where he worked with bands like Gorod, Otargos, and French death-metal pioneers Loudblast. He also jammed with Bumblefoot. But the only thing that truly matters is that we all believe in the power of hard rock.

Guitar Hero/Rockband + Mad Max + Pixel Graphics + Walking Dead = Double Kick Heroes! This game will Rock our World! The only problem I have with it is the name doesn't feel like it fits the game. Perhaps maybe the title could be changed to something else, like Road Warriors.

Music in this is by the legendary Amiga composer Frederic Motte (aka MOBY), which for me makes this an instant buy. The guy is a true master.
