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 implement support for online play but this represents a significant amount of work, if we can build an online implementation that closely approximates local multiplayer gameplay and isn't significantly compromised by network latency we will have it in the game.

Version 0.0.2 doesn't seem to work with me but 0.0.1 does with working the menus and playing the actual game. I'm not sure what the issue could be.

Once you grab a dude, you can't throw them away? All I can do is let the dude go at a specific angle so that I don't die as well. Maybe just a 0.0.1 thing.

currently there is not dedicated throwing action, throwing is achieved by shifting the characters body weight to generate momentum, we will continue to tweak the throwing mechanic to make it more intuitive and effective.

re: the issue your having with the 0.0.2 build, it is difficult to say without more information, please can you try the 0.0.3 when we have submitted it to IndieDB (this will be sometime in the next 24 hours) to see if this bypasses the issue (if not please contact us with information re: the specifications and OS for your computer and we will try to identify the cause of the issue).

Just watched the brief EGX Rezzed video coverage on VideogamerTV's YT channel. The prototype looks great with the revamped lightning and ambient occlusion.

in the ring stage, it would be cool if the people outside the ring could fight each other and act as lumberjacks. just a suggestion that I hope you consider... keep on with the updates, the game is great!

We have spoken about making eliminated players continue to be controllable so they can grab the legs of the players in the ring etc. but haven't made the time to implement this yet.

Can you tell how to throw objects? I understand lifting, but I can throw.

We are still tweaking the throwing mechanic, currently the best technique is to use the momentum from running or changing direction and release the grab buttons when your arms are passing above your characters head.
