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 ( ) 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 : )

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!
