Bugspeed Collider has entered the Open Beta phase after roughly two years in development:

Bugspeed is our first real commercial attempt at putting a game out. It has evolved wildly over the course of development and has grown into a solid brawler for solo and (local) multiplayer play.

Basically: You and up to three friends take control of super-powered beetles to fight each other and/or computer opponents. There's a variety of play modes and variations thereof to choose from, including survival, speed-run, and free-for-all modes.

The beetles can smash, fly, and even throw fireballs across nine fully-destructible world. Combat works differently depending on whether or not you're flying. We've found that the move-set is varied enough such that each player is able to develop their own viable fighting style.

We're at the point now where we just need a lot more hands on the game and get everything feeling just right. We're trying to hit the sweet spot between familiarity and innovation. While we often look to games like Smash Bros and Towerfall for inspiration, we also want to ensure that we are bringing something new to the conversation.

We invite you to give it a shot. Tear up a few rival bugs and the ground they're standing on. Let us know what you think, and as always, thanks for playing.


Looks interesting, I'm also liking the no sale promise. Think you'll have a demo?

Thanks! We were pretty interested in the idea ourselves. The idea actually came from a road-trip discussion of the Darwin's Beetle and their weirdly violent ways. It kind of took on a life of it's own after that.

In regards to a demo, we keep going back and forth on that. I think that we will eventually, but not until after development has mostly ended.
