Genital Jousting’s final cut thrusts into the limelight with story mode

Everyone loves a good dick joke, but Broforce studio Free Lives' Genital Jousting is something else. It's bizarrely visceral and meaty in a way that comedy schlongs rarely are. It feels a world away from the twirling phalluses of Mount Your Friends, with meat slapping against meat with uncanny gusto, accompanied by some quite unsettling Foley work. Free Lives realize this, to some degree, and…

Gorn: batter muscular men in VR next month

Not to be confused with the big alien lizard that once threw a polystyrene boulder at Captain Kirk, Gorn [official site] is a gladiatorial VR game from Broforce and Genital Jousting developers Free Lives. It looks exceedingly bloody and silly, and it’s coming to the Vive via Steam Early Access on July 10. Check out the trailer below.

Broforce Broifies Bruce Lee, Tank Girl, Dirty Harry

How many bros can there be? Will they keep coming? Where do they even come from? As a wee tot I knew no bros, then suddenly I had one living in my home and it was all downhill from there. How does Broforce [official site] convert real people into bros, and could they do it to you and I? Broforce developers Free Lives show no…

Broforce Unleashes Double Christopher Lambert

Only now that Broforce [official site] has left Steam Early Access are we actually getting some real action heroes! The first post-launch update has arrived with a Christopher Lambert double-header, adding new Bros based on Connor MacLeod, The Highlander, and Raiden out Mortal Kombat to run and jump and megamurder. Now we're talking! The 'Lightning Strikes Twice' update also added new challenge missions designed around…

Wot I Think: Broforce

We've written about the brilliance at the muscular heart of Broforce [official site] before. It's a run and gun platform-shooter in which tiny action heroes blow everything to pieces, using machine guns, dynamite, knives, shotguns, rocket launchers, rocket legs, rocket packs, grenades, airstrikes and flamethrowers. The fully destructible levels and agile player characters are the core of a perfectly pitched action game, hiding behind a…

Coming At You: Broforce Explodes Out Of Early Access

Broforce [official site] is not a game about shoving matches in the Bas Vegas car park. No, Broforce's bros are kill-o-platforming commandos who may or may not bear some resemblance to action movie stars. Brobocop, Double Bro Seven, Rambro, Ellen Ripbro, Indianna Brones, Bro Dredd, The Brode... no, any similarities to fictional characters owned by large companies with expensive lawyers are probably just coincidences. After…

Broforce Bursts Out Of Early Access Next Week, Celebrates With Power Ballad

When we last visited Broforce [official site], it'd just dropped a July update in time for 'Murica's fourth of July celebrations. At the time, Alice noted that developer Free Lives understood Independence Day the only way a studio hailing from South Africa could: with copious amounts of guns and dodgy American-cum-Australian-cum-Scottish voiceovers. South Africans discussing Americanisms can be hilarious. This power ballad-inspired trailer to mark…

Broheart, The Brocketeer, & Gunshows In Broforce Update

Broforce [official site] understands American Independence Day like only a game made by a South African studio can. The USA is a big melting pot, so they say, which is why you'll find its July update brings a man with Nazi rocket technology and an American playing an Australian playing a Scot who's fighting for the freedom of the stars and stripes. And flexing. Everyone's…

Crossbrover: The Expendabros Out Now For Free

Look, I don't know how to say this: someone has made an advergame for a movie and it feels... not awful? Not something made to fund other games its developers actually care about? Perhaps its creators' wildest dreams come true? I don't know what to make of this topsy-turvy world any more. See, Broforce is a game all about nostalgia for action movie heroes of…

Not Going Quietly Into The Night: Broforce Updated

Ah, July 4th, that day once per year when America goes flag-flying, eagle-saluting crazy in celebration of overthrowing some vile oppressor. No idea who those villains might be, but we can all celebrate that Free Lives air dropped an update for their platforming mega-blaster Broforce one day early. Along with a couple of new characters, audio magician Joonas Turner (who's helped out with Nuclear Throne…

Revelatory Shock: Broforce Gets More Bros

In order to stay true to the tone and spirit of Broforce, I have decided to compose some Broforce poetry, or Broetry, as it must be known according to The Only Laws That Matter. You are required to listen to this music while reading it. OK, let us begin. Ahem: Broforce / Like "breakfast" spoken really fast / And with more breaking things / Puts…

Feature: Get to da choppagh

Impressions: Broforce

Broforce is a run-and-gun platformer which joyously spoofs the bellicose masculinity of action cinema. It’s available on Steam Early Access for £12/$15, but its featureset punches above its alpha status: singleplayer, online co-op, deathmatch, time trials, a level editor and more are already in a fairly well-polished state with more tweaks and content planned. Here are three uncharitable assumptions you might have made about Broforce:…

Bromantic: Devolver To Publish Broforce

Broforce is the smartest game with the dumbest name. Eighties action movies are the thematic springboard from which it leaps through the air - in slow-motion, away from an exploding nuclear power station, with a knife between its teeth - but its design is as retro as a 3d printed sculpture of the future. The blocky graphics might suggest otherwise but developers Free Lives have…

No Emotions, Just Explosions: Broforce!

The headline refers to the trend for overwhelming emotional experiences in modern man-shoots. In Broforce! there is none of that. Brosplosions create ex-bros, decimating chunks of scenery and causing enemies to bounce, bleed and bellow as they perish in a fountain of red pixels. The millennia's worth of the 1980s that have been packed into the game is nothing more than a distraction because beyond…
