The 8-bit Studios team are developing a "MOV" multiplayer online versus game free-to-play for PC's, next-gen consoles, smartphones and tablets. Similar to versus games out on the market-think Tekken or Street Fighter-our combat system is based on the skills and reflexes of each player, utilizing a system of combos. However, the action is in third person and may include up to 16 players at a time! All combat will be live action, online in battle arenas where the way players handle their characters will be the key to their success!
In Skara, we do not let characters improve by levels, making them effectively invincible. In other words, a novice player has the same chance of killing a veteran player, just like in versus fighting games. The only difference is marked by the reflexes and experience of each player in battle.

Skara’s gamedev team streams live on Twitch

Now that Skara is a playable game means it is now also a streamable game!

So the team has taken advantage of this by playing the game live on Twitch and talking about how the game development is progressing, issues in the process and what's coming next.

These streams are meant to be two-way conversations with anyone interested in Skara. We are happy to answer questions and react to opinions, or just make friends with people who are interested in the game.

So go ahead and get involved! Streams are typically Friday evenings UK and Europe time, though this is liable to change based on popular demand.

Did you miss a stream? That's okay! We keep the highlights from the last stream for you to watch anytime, anywhere.

Want to stream Skara yourself? Feel free! We are excited to see how other people play the game, and a stream is the best way to do this. Of course, remembering the game is still in Early Access is very important if you want to stream it, since you may run into issues and other Alpha version problems.

LugdunonTG as done it, check out he's stream, then play it yourself!

An MMO where you actually need skill instead of Character levels? Might be the first MMO after Ultima Online i am going to play!

Hmm, not the first. There are others out there, like Vindictus. Sadly apart from the towns, there's only Instance Dungeons and Raids (up to 24 people).
This game looks good and I'd love to see more Action-MMORPG's, I really fancy an open world though.

Well we are not an MMO, 16 players is not that massively that's why we like to call us a MOV (multiplayer online versus) game!
