Ragnarok Arena is a sidescrolling multiplayer shooter developed on the Source Engine. Gameplay is brutal and fast paced, with realism being thrown to the side in exchange for adrenaline-fueled arcade action. Relive the joy of playing in the style of older titles like Mega Man, Contra and Metal Slug with friends in eye-popping HD, and with a new control scheme custom-tuned for a keyboard and mouse.

We here on planet EDE have been working pretty hard over the last fe months to produce a new version of Ragnarok Arena from the ground up. Faster, easier to play, much more entertaining and rather close to a first release.

For those of you not in the know, Ragnarok Arena is a sidescrolling multiplayer game built on top of Valve's Source Engine. The version that we're preparing for release will have three gamemodes, Free For All, Team Deathmatch and Capture the Flag.

Now, for a time-frame. While I don't want to make the mistake of setting a specific time and missing it, I am confident in the team's ability to get the first version out the door around the time everyone is either blitzed or hung over from New Year's. Of course, we could use your help! If you enjoy special recognition and breaking things, we are currently looking for beta testers! Please see this thread for more information.

From your friends at Exploding Dog Entertainment, we wish you Happy Holidays, and we hope to see you at New Years for some Sidescrolling Multiplayer Action.
