No Emotions, Just Explosions…Broforce! is a beautifully designed game…play the free brototype and you will become a believer.

A ridiculously violent platform game about being awesome action heroes from the 80s and 90s while slaying satanic terrorists and aliens while unraveling an evil plot to destroy the planet while dealing with being awesome action heroes from the 80s and 90s.

You can play the BROFORCE brototype here:

It is best played two player local bro-op (there is no online multiplayer yet).

The brototype demonstrates the kind of combat we are working at, though it lacks the depth, the scale of content and the narrative the final game will include (and a lot else besides).

If you would like to support the team and pre-order Broforce you can do so here (we don't have much money, so every little bit will help us make this game even better):

The final game will feature:
  • All the power of the 80s and 90s at your finger tips.
  • A story filled with revenge and bromance that spans the continents and outer space.
  • Local bro-op play and online multiplayer bro-op as well as deathmatch arenas with leaderboards and rankings.
  • A battle against terror as a huge cast of action heroes, each with distinctive attacks and special brobilities
  • Vehicular action sequences, dinosaurs, aliens and epic Contra-inspired boss fights.
  • Nuanced and strategic combat, explosive action and deadly stealth.
  • A level editor and the ability to challenge your friends and share your custom levels.
  • Design your own Bro Fort! Build a fortress to weather the terrorist onslaught, or just hang out.
  • Capybaras.
  • For every terrorist killed in Broforce, a terrorist will die in real life.

BROFORCE is being developed at Free Lives, a small South African studio. We're aiming to have a beta demonstrating all the of the features out in 2013, while the release of the game will happen at some point after that.

We were inspired by the games we've played growing up, Contra, Metal Slug, and the work of Derek Yu (Spelunky) and Vlambeer (Infinite Swat, Super Crate Box). We'd appreciate any feedback we can get. We're trying to make this game for everyone who loves 90s action movies (or just hilarious tactical platformer violence). We are trying to cram in as much awesome as we physically can into this game.
