We're Greenlit! Thank You So Much
Kicking Butt and Taking Names
Release date: March 2018

Sacrifice is necessary. Mercy is not.

With more hacking and slashing than you previously thought possible, No Mercy is a side-scrolling brawler with multiplayer set for early release in Early 2018. Following the story of four main characters, Elliot, Ray, Belle, and Orion, as they work to cleanse the forest and restore balance. Use their different weapons and powers to crush anything that stands in your way, and explore the surrounding levels for hidden secrets. Bursting with vibrant art and interlocking character arcs, No Mercy draws both you and the characters deeper into the heart of a forest under siege.

Your only hope lies in each other, but everyone has something valuable to lose. In a story of love, trust, and a fourth wall-breaking bird person named Kevin, you must work together to save the forest, your friends, or at the very least, your life.

--- DEMO ---
We also have a demo available for anyone who'd like to check out our early prototype. Follow us on and we'll continue to update the demo as we work on the game!

We are currently running a Kickstarter for No Mercy. If you like what you see, please consider supporting us, or spreading the word to people you think might like No Mercy. (updated 2/13/2017)

--- Features ---
BLOODSHED: Hack and slash your way through slugs, spirits, and corrupted golems that are destroying the forest. We named the game No Mercy for a reason. We expect you to bring your A-game or button mash your way through the forest to defeat the Corruption. Once you’ve beaten the game the first time, levels will unlock, and you’ll be able to play as any character you want, fighting until your heart’s content.

MULTIPLAYER: Relatively self-explanatory, but No Mercy has multiplayer! Play alone or with a friend (or hundreds of your closest friends on Twitch… we won’t complain).

ART: Every great battle is commemorated in a stunning painting. Get lost in the ever-shifting, colorful art of No Mercy: the painting that pays tribute to your quest to save the forest. The gestural strokes, expressive colors, and 2D backgrounds are designed for a visually expressive experience.

HIDDEN STORY: While destroying every enemy you can find, remember to stop and explore the vast forest around you. Eons of time have passed through those branches, and terrible secrets about the woods, the Corruption, and even your friends could be hidden amidst them. We never want story to break the flow of gameplay, so it has been integrated into the surrounding levels as hidden areas, context clues, and dialogue instead of long cutscenes.

CHARACTERS: Alternate through four playable characters in levels designed to gradually reveal more about their wants, needs, and (occasionally tragic) backstories. Each character has a unique fighting style that can be combined to add new challenges and depth to levels.

ACCESSIBILITY: MVG has been working with The AbleGamers Charity to ensure that our game is accessible for those with disabilities. Our goal is to create a game that respectfully represents the disabled community, as two of our main characters, Elliot and Orion, live with disabilities. Accessibility and representation are important beyond measure, so we’re working to make sure we do it right.

Hi @daughterofthestars08, yes we'll be giving out keys through Steam when the game is released. Thanks for the support!

If we backed the kickstarter, is there a way to get our digital copy of the game from steam? I used to play rimworld from a digital download and they transferred to steam so I'm pretty sure it's possible, but I figured I'd ask.

I really like this game! However in the demo, I ran into a bug where I blackscreened after trying to continue after I died. Everything else was solid though. I didn't get stuck in the game, and the controls were fine for keyboard. I also liked the art and music. Hopefully the game gets Greenlit!
