EIGHT DRAGONS is an old-school side-scrolling fighting game that takes the classic beat-'em-up action from the eighties and pushes the gameplay and story to a whole new level!

There are two ways to play EIGHT DRAGONS - first as a straightforward arcade game. Put your team together, choose your characters and kick ass from one end of Scumville to the other, leaving no bad guy standing in your quest to defeat Mr Big and bring justice to the city. In the other, you and your team take part in an epic story that adapts around you as you journey across the darker paths of Scumville to defeat Mr Big and his henchmen. Whichever way you choose, you're guaranteed to have a real fun fight on your hands!


  • Extreme Multiplayer: Up to eight people can play co-operatively on one PC!
  • Arcade Mode: Play through a classic arcade game straight outta 1987!
  • Story Mode: Play through an epic quest that adapts to how you play!
  • Wide Roster: Eight unique playable characters!
  • Multiple Weapons: Use sledgehammers, axes, pool cues and more to crush your enemies!
  • Variable Difficulties: You can adjust how tough your enemies are - and not just how much damage they take!
  • Accessibility Options: You can adjust how fast the game runs - faster, slower, whatever you need!
  • Full Controller Support: If it's an input device, it'll work with this game!

- UPDATE - Eight Dragons!!


The first thing we need to tell you is that Eight Dragons has a big update on the horizon, which has the code side of things tied up so the most recent couple of updates aren't introducing any new features or fixing up any bugs (There are honestly very few left), but that doesn't mean that we've got nothing for you!!


(Good Korean cooking can be found in the Downtown zone)

The first update adds support for German, Russian, Spanish and Chinese languages. Yes, we know that won't affect most of our existing players, but we thought it'd be nice to let some more people play too! We're going to add more languages later on, but we thought we'd find out how badly we've done with this round of localisation before going any further...


(But why is he just watching? - what a weirdo!)

While the coding side of our team is working on those big features we've talked about, the art side has started looking at improving the look and feel of the game. The first thing we've got to show you is in our latest update - the Downtown level has been drastically upgraded, with more and nicer things to look at and distract you while gang members try to beat you up...

That's not a huge change for three weeks of work, we're sure you'll agree. But that's because we're working on some quite big features that just aren't ready yet. We appreciate your patience - it'll be worth it!

Here's a video of Zonda fighting her way through the new look Downtown level - Enjoy it!

You can follow our progress as we get Eight Dragons closer to what we know it can be here:
