It’s been a week since we’ve released the Early Access version of Mercenary Kings on Steam and we’re thrilled with the answer it’s getting, we’re also listening to the backers and buyers’s demands and working hard to improve what is already there, as well as building up new stuff:
Straight from Jonathan’s (game design and 100 other things) desk, some stuff to correct, add, UPCOMING LEVEL SECRET STUFF and etc…
But wait, what’s this??
Keyboard Configuration Menu??? YES! It is coming this week after all!
We thank you for your patience and hope you’re enjoying the game!
At last! As of RIGHT NOW on Steam or here, you can finally get an early access to the Mercenary Kings and join the fight against the forces of CLAW on Mandragora Island!
I want this! Can I get it? Where can I get it? Which platform?? You are in luck! The game is available as of right NOW on Steam, for PC! Once completed, the game will be released for PS4. We want to release it in other formats down the road, but for the moment, Steam andPS4 are the priority.
Early Access? What is this?? It’s an earlier, not completed version of the game. It currently has 60 missions whereas the completed version of the game will have 100! This version of the game still needs your feedback to get it in the best possible shape and it’s why we are releasing it now.
It’s not complete?? It is not! The early access is still packed full of stuff, it even has the online multiplaying component, but it is not a completed version of the game, which is still in progress.
What’s missing? We’re thrilled with the current version of the game, but we still need to balance different values (items, different enemy difficulties, weapons) ontop of adding the remaining missions, cutscenes and various sound effects.
Do I still get the full version of the game? Yes! The full version of the game will automatically download when it’s released!
When is the completed version coming out? Sometime around Fall!
The rest is now up to you! Do not let the world fall into chaos and strife! Join the Kings, craft weapons and CUT DOWN CLAW!
Guys, Adventure Time creator and all-around positive guy, Pendleton Ward got himself held HOSTAGE by the forces of CLAW! He was just chillin’ on Mandragora Island but got embroiled into their fiendish take-over! Sure, you have to beat CLAW to save the world from their evil plans, but you gotta rescue Pendleton Ward too! Come on guys!
The Mercenary Kings have been activated… Early! On July 22nd, get the game on Steam Early Access! Help the mission by giving us your intel before the official release! Enter the fray as the most skilled mercenaries on Earth! Craft your arsenal to avenge your fallen comrades and save the world from the fearsome forces of CLAW.
How about THAT? Made by the amazing PaulRobertson , the Steel Soldier is one of the first big bosses in Mercenary Kings. Originally built as a construction mech it’s designs have been stolen and weaponized by the evil C.L.A.W organization!
We’re sharing these sprites so people can pore over the detail and sheer condensed fun from Paul’s sprite work!
Another year, another Electronic Entertainment Expo has come and gone. But not any E3 for us as it was our first presence at the show, within the Sony booth! We’d like to thank everyone who came by to play the game, as well as Sony for the cool spot!
We’re attaching a picture for those of you who couldnt make it, or just need accurate reference for dreams of playing Mercenary Kings at E3 2013.
Tribute Games is launching a Kickstarter for Mercenary Kings today! We really want to make this game the best it can be, and to achieve that we need additional support.
We hope that people will see the huge potential of this game like we do and will be willing to participate in this adventure! Our backers will get cool rewards (the most basic one being a digital copy of Mercenary Kings and a digital copy of Wizorb).
We tried to describe Mercenary Kings as thoroughly as we could on our Kickstarter page, so you can check it out here:
