Description

The classic couch competitive gameplay of games like "Bomberman" brought into the modern era. Place bombs, get out of the way, destroy your friends, collect powerups, 'splode your way to victory in a variety of game modes adapted for smooth multiplayer with virtually unlimited local players!

History

With no original Bomberman US PC release this millennium, and only a couple low quality Bomberman-like games on Steam, players are excited for Splody. Local multiplayer games for 8 or more people is a personal passion of Dashing Strike founder Jimb Esser, and there is a significant lack of these out there. Splody started as an open-source, free, local multiplayer game ("BBE", primarily created by Jimb, a decade ago), and over the past year has been expanded with online multiplayer and polished to professional quality.

Features

  • Online multiplayer
  • Ranking and Leaderboards
  • Host your own custom online game, or just jump in to a public game to quickly get into the action
  • As many local players as you can connect controllers for (4-20 recommended)
  • Play against bots to practice, fill in a game, or epic "Human vs Bot" battles
  • Level editor, share custom levels
  • Various game modes and settings including "Capture the Dino" - Fight over control for a mount in this game mode which keeps all players respawning and in the action until the end of the match
  • Even in the "classic" game mode, with post-mortem "ghost bombers," players can affect the game after they are defeated, so no one gets bored between matches
