Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts is a silly local multiplayer party game with doughy ragdoll physics and horrific environmental hazards. In the current pre-alpha players can grab, push, pull, punch, and throw their friends from wrestling rings, speeding trucks, and suspended platforms.

Gang Beasts supports mouse, keyboard, and game controllers as inputs, to map the inputs press the 'Tab' key in game or click the large oscillating yellow text that reads "PRESS TAB TO REMAP CONTROLS" on the game menu.

We have been working to get the next build of Gang Beasts made for release on Steam Early Access, we wanted to do this for the end of July but there is still additional work we need to do on the game and the Steam page before we can publish the next build of the game. We have had several meetings in the last few days to review the progress made on the next build (see the current change log below for specific information) and spoken with our partners and have set the official release date for Early Access as the 29th August.

We understand that the people that have read the various comments we've made about our plans to try to get the next build of the game finished before August will be disappointed that we haven't been able to, but it is important that the key character features (climbing, kicking, and stomping) are fully implemented, balanced, and stable for the new stages and environments to work.

We have posted more information about the next build for those that want to read specific information on the modifications we've made to the character and games systems to date (see Steamcommunity.com).

Thank you for your patience.

James, Jon, Michael, and Jason.

We plan to have parts of the environment be destructible similar to the breakable glass in the 'Incinerator' stage and the destructible gates in the 'Tutorial' stage.

We haven't set a minimum specification for the game as it is in pre-alpha, we have made some significant optimisations to the character collisions since the 0.0.2 (see Youtu.be); are you playing on a laptop with integrated graphics?

Gang Beasts is made with Unity which has support for building to Windows RT, if there is sufficient demand for an RT version after the full game is finished we could put it on the Window Store if that doesn't break compatibility with the other PC versions of the game.

I'm using a laptop and I am having trouble picking a character up. I can grab and punch them, but how do I lift them up? Is it the action button? I have that set to up arrow but when i press it nothing happens.

you need to hold grab and the action button at the same time, if you grab an enemy with both hands you can lift them higher and more easily; if this doesn't work I would try mapping the action button to a different key, some keyboards have a hardware limit on how many keys (and which keys) can be pressed concurrently (the limitation is called 'Key Ghosting', you can test if this is the issue using the tool at the top of the Microsoft support page at Microsoft.com).
