WE GOT GREENLIT!!!
Demo Version 3!
Description
Release date: 2016
Download the demo on Indiedb.





Smoke your opponents in this fast-paced dodgeball brawler! Blast them off the stage with a variety of sci-fi characters and abilities.





  • Dynamic dodgeball combat
  • A roster of characters with very different playstyles
  • Online multiplayer (1v1)
  • Local multiplayer (1v1, 2v2, free for all)
  • Full gamepad and keyboard/mouse support
  • Original soundtrack by 8 Bit Cypher









Ace is quick on his feet, and likes to snipe his targets from across the map. He has two laser abilities; one builds heavy damage, and the other has a large knockback to finish with. Ace can also get out of sticky situations with a short teleport.



Zomborg is a slow bruiser, excelling at guarding the middle and soaking up damage. His shotgun deals high damage at close range, stunning other characters. He uses a magnet pull to yank dodgeballs and players towards him, to compensate for his slow speed. Zomborg’s laser will passively charge up over time, and he can use it to damage an opponent that is staying out of his range.



Sydney stays in constant motion with near-frictionless movement. She is adept at keeping the enemy off-balance with AOE explosions and knockbacks, and a talented player can weave them together to pull off combos.

Metagalactic Blitz is a top-down physics based fighting game. Everyone shares some main dodgeball mechanics (throwing, dashing, and reflecting), and each character also has 3 powerful abilities unique to them.


Throwing


Dashing/Catching


Reflecting



Zomborg will be our example for abilities. He's a slow bruiser with an arm cannon. If his opponent is close, he can fire a shotgun to rack up damage.



Or, he can combo with his magnet pull for a point blank shotgun.



He can use these tools to zone the other player, by guarding the dodgeballs and thus preventing them from getting any power for abilities.



if you didn't catch that, abilities require 1 power to use, which is gained from picking up a dodgeball. The balls are central to offense.

If his opponent is good at staying out of range, Zomborg can utilize his laser that charges passively over time to root them out.



As more damage is dealt, players are knocked back farther. Knocking them off the stage will eliminate them.





Current Progress
The game is almost feature-complete! We still need to finish up our last character's abilities (Zandra), and implement matchmaking (after we integrate with the Steam SDK, assuming we get through Greenlight alright).

Future Development
We will go through a period of early-access on steam to iron out bugs, balance characters, and see what features are most requested. After that, we plan on creating additional characters, skins, and animations as DLC packs if there is interest in expanding the game. We'd love to keep developing if there is enough interest.

The Team
Our team is made up of a programmer and an artist. If you want to hear about development or chat with the programmer, you can find him on twitter: https://www.twitter.com/PixelvexDev

You can also join us on our Discord server, we like to hang out here when we are developing: https://discord.gg/Wes2m

thanks for the comment; sorry about the low res, I messed that up and didn't have time to retake all footage. Here's some higher res recordings of gameplay if you are interested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvY1OaKDQbA

Why is the gameplay video at such a low resolution? It looks like they were trying to combine cell shading with retro, and it just clashes.
