This game has really solid mechanics. Nice job!

I've found a bug in multiplayer: sometimes the map won't load, instead the entire screen will be colored with the light color(based on the chosen palette). Here a video about the problem (maybe It's just a corrupted map)



We are glad you like the game! Thanks for reporting the bug, we are going to hunt for it next time we have the chance.

This game would be really awesome if there was online play, or if you didn't need a gamepad to play versus. Don't give up on this game. I love the idea and it has a lot of potential behind it! :)


Thanks for your encouraging! Sorry for not providing a way to being play without a gamepad.

Online mode is something that we choose to avoid because we don't have the time and resources right now to commit to. But we used to have a mode in the prototype version where two players could play with one keyboard by removing the "block" and "dash" moves. We could add that option next time we have the chance.

anybody want to join me on shadow brawlers versus deathmatch?



Sorry to tell you, the game only has local multiplayer. You will need at least one joystick and other humans to play Versus.

cant beat the second part of the first level solo

hi! don't know if you are trying with a gamepad or a keyboard, so maybe is hard to understand how are the keybendings

In keyboard you have the SHIFT for dash and the SPACEBAR to change color

In xbox gamepad you have the LEFT TRIGGER for dash and the RIGHT TRIGGER to change color

That's the information you need to beat that tutorial. 

thank you

Fun, interesting mechanic

this is a great game. if possible i want to download it and share it with friends
