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 evolves: build 0.4.4 live

It's time to try the new build of Skara, which represents a giant step in progress of the game development.

Below is a list of updates to the build. Please use this list in your feedback, so we can easily keep track of it and put together the most comprehensive view as possible.


  • New Shinse skin (available from the main menu).
  • New Shinse Heavy and Fast Attacks.
  • New Shinse Unstoppable Attack.
  • New final Boss - Groth the Soul Ripper.
  • New Game Mode (kill Groth) for the Lava Coliseum.
  • Optimization patch: screen resolution, quality reduction, character Level of Detail (LOD).
  • New in-game menu, including Graphic Settings.
  • In-game notifications: kills, assists, etc...
  • New chat-like in-game notifications.
  • Ranged weapons first iteration: throwing knives.
  • New blood system, including blood decals in any surface.
  • New health and stamina HUD
  • Super nice crown HUD showing who is the top scoring player in a match.
  • New hit animations for both characters.
  • Localization issues fixed (useful for Spanish speakers)

Although we did our best to test the new build before launch, it remains a work in progress. You will find problems, bugs, and other issues that might prove frustrating. Please share these with us, since that is the only way for us to fix problems and improve the experience. Depending on your feedback, we may work on a bug fixing build to publish soon.

Gradually Skara is becoming the game we envisioned it being. We hope you find this build a big step forward, and enjoy playing Skara more and more.

See you on the battlefield!

The SKARA Team
