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.

The day has finally arrived!

Skara is now on Steam Early Access! You can now play an early version of Skara and see how the vision is becoming a reality. There is still a lot of development to go, but we highly encourage you to get on Steam and give it a try. Store.steampowered.com

Access will cost 19$ to help pay for the development, but you will get that money back as virtual currency. During the Early Access you will also get to try all the new features and items as they are developed. We are also offering the following Limited Edition items to our Early Access players:

  • Exclusive Limited Edition Weapon and Shield.
  • Exclusive Limited Edition Armor.
  • Limited Edition in-game Avatar.
  • Your name etched on your Limited Edition Armor.

Now that Skara is live, it is also time to change how the community can help guide the development process. So we have created a couple of new ways to interact with us.

The first way is on a new public steam group Steamcommunity.com. This will be a great way to have public discussions, sharing insights and news about the development. If you want a quick update about how and where things are going for the game, come here. We will also have a closed steam group to share with you some exclusive information. Steamcommunity.com

The second way is a new board on the platform Trello. This is the most secure way to poll community members about the features in development, while at the same time allowing members to see how their votes have impacted the development.

Finally, we will be having "Developer streams" on Twitch, where anyone can show up and watch us playing the game (some may get to play with us!) answering questions about Skara's development. Our first Twitch will be today at 4pm GMT+1. Join us to see what Skara looks like at the moment! Twitch.tv

Thanks again for supporting us along this journey. It's finally a reality!

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!
