Door Kickers: Action Squad is a loose cannon and out of early access

I'm not entirely sure why KillHouse's tactical SWAT 'em up Door Kickers went and spawned a side-scrolling arcade spinoff, but I'm glad it did. Released yesterday and co-developed by PixelShard, Door Kickers: Action Squad is a semi-tactical platform shooter for one or two players (online or local). Players kick open doors, shoot assorted 80s action movie villains and look cool doing it. Action Squad has…

Door Kickers adds online cooperative multiplayer

Hi gang, apparently I didn't read the small print on a cup of tea The Man offered me and I'm now contract-bound to produce some #content about the #RoyalWedding. Well well well, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are to be wed. Holy matrimony. The bond. Some say that a married couple are like an elite SWAT team, working together using teamwork, communication, support, planning, bolt…

Door Kickers getting a side-scrolling spin-off

KillHouse Games has teased a side-scrolling, retro spin-off to Door Kickers, officially the best top-down tactics game of 2014. It's called Door Kickers: Action Squad [official site], and it's being co-developed by KillHouse and Pixel Shard, whose only previous title is a match-three game called Yummy Dreams: Jelly Rainbow. Quite a change of scenery, then. It looks like it's trying to inject some humour into the…

Indie Legends 4 Bundle Includes Door Kickers, Skullgirls

I've grown immune to the draw of bundles as the number of them has increased, but the Indie Legends 4 Bundle has a good enough haul that it reminds of the early days of Humble. For €3.15 (around £2.62/$3.51) you get Viscera Cleanup Detail (with DLC), Door Kickers, Skullgirls, Sir, You Are Being Hunted, Reus, Lethal League, Party Hard, and Another World. I haven't played…

Sunless Sea, Else Heart.Break() In Humble Indie Bundle

While Brendan skipped around gaily like a cyberkid in a cybercandy shop, hacking that candy to receive godlike powers, John was less enamoured with Else Heart.Break(). If you were torn between those two opinions and passed over the sandbox RPG when it came out last year, hey, it's in the latest Humble Bundle. It's a mega-bargain, also offering Sunless Sea, Trine 3, Door Kickers, and…

Door Kickers 2 Will Release In Early Access This Year

Door Kickers 2 was very briefly announced two weeks ago, but now there's more information beyond "it exists". The sequel to top-down breach-and-clear-'em-up is subtitled "Task Force North" and trades urban environments for a military Special Operations team fighting in a fictional "Iraqi-like" country. It'll be 3D, there'll be co-op, and it'll enter Early Access in September or October of this year. More details below.

Door Kickers 2 In Development, Switches To 3D

At the start of the Christmas holiday, I looked upon my list of installed Steam games and considered what new games I might finally have time for. Then I instantly opened up Door Kickers [Steam page], a game I'd played a dozen times before. It was the only PC game I played over the break. Good news, then! Door Kickers 2 is in development.

Cruisin’ For A Brusin’: Door Kickers Adds New Campaign

It seems like only yesterday that I was writing about Door Kickers, a top-down game of tactical breach and clear maneuvers. Actually it was two days ago though, when we named it our favourite tactical game of the year. Now an update for the game has been released which adds a new campaign called Terror At Sea. Is it about being trapped on a small…
