After an endless fall through powerful magnetic storms... you awaken.

Your memory erased, you start exploring the world around you. Someone or something is pushing you higher and higher. Suddenly, you spot the most gigantic Tower emerging from the mists. You soon understand that to get the answers to your questions... you have to climb its summit.

However, this is no easy feat. The Tower is protected by a high-tech security system made up of complex mechanisms, fatal lasers, and robots constantly tracking your every move.

If you are to survive, you'll need to use all your skills (jumping, double-jumping, dashing etc. ) and make good use of your SwitchGun, that can be used to enable or disable traps and robots in order to reach the top of the Tower and uncover the secrets of its origins.

Hello everybody,

After multiple adventures and obstacles we had to overcome, the 5-Bits Games team is proud to announce that Deadlock alpha version is now available on Desura!

Time flew at an incredible speed, the game became bigger than expected and it went beyond the 1st goal we planned (polishing the 7 Days FPS demo) to be closer to the 2nd one: making a ‘real’ game!

As we said before, here are the main new features implemented in this version:

  • A new level (3rd on 5 planned)
  • A new power-up, the Dash, that changes completely the way you’ll play the game
  • More polished art and sound assets
  • A new Speedrun Mode along with online Leaderboards to challenge players all over the world.

Of course we intend to add more stuff to the game: from now on updates should be released more frequently as we are almost done with the game structure and will be focused on adding content to the game (new levels, new enemies…).

But we won’t spoil you right now, it wouldn’t be fun...

We also have decided to organize a small contest: every person that will share this news on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/deadlock ) or retweet our tweet concerning the alpha release (@DeadlockTeam | don’t forget to follow us so we can contact you later) will participate to a tombola with 6 keys of Deadlock tor the luckiest ones!

Finally, our super sound designers made a SoundClound page so you can bring Deadlock original soundtrack in your headphones anytime, anywhere : )
Soundcloud.com

As always, don’t hesitate to send us your feedback, this will greatly help us improving the game!

See you,

Team 5-Bits Games

P.S.: for the people who are waiting for the Mac and Linux versions don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten you, we are currently working on them!

New Jumpers!

You're damn right, it would be a hell of a vertigo feeling then!
But we wouldn't provide digital vomit bags along with the game, sorry... ^^

Oh yeah, it would be definitely awesome!

We have been thinking to some multiplayer modes including races, building/fighting mixes but unfortunately we have not the means to do all of that right now... We hope that we will be able to do so in an hypothetical next version of the game, but we must focus on completing version 1.0 for the moment...

What can i do?Do I try the demo and then buy it or buy it quickly? Hard question it is ^^. The trailer rised up my hype a lot, it was really well done.

How much time you want to keep the discount?

Hey NotteNera!

You have the time to try the demo before buying Deadlock, the discount will be available until the next version (beta) so don't rush it, make your own opinion about the game first ; )
