The 8-bit Studios team are developing a "MOV" multiplayer online versus game free-to-play for PC's, next-gen consoles, smartphones and tablets. Similar to versus games out on the market-think Tekken or Street Fighter-our combat system is based on the skills and reflexes of each player, utilizing a system of combos. However, the action is in third person and may include up to 16 players at a time! All combat will be live action, online in battle arenas where the way players handle their characters will be the key to their success!
In Skara, we do not let characters improve by levels, making them effectively invincible. In other words, a novice player has the same chance of killing a veteran player, just like in versus fighting games. The only difference is marked by the reflexes and experience of each player in battle.

With still more than a week to go before Early Access, the team was incredibly nervous about how people trying Skara at Madrid Games Week would react to it.

That's what makes winning a "Player's Choice" award from the Made in Spain Games area so much sweeter. Despite the limitations of having only one character and one arena to try and a few bugs (Lava didn't always kill, etc.) - players saw the potential of the game-to-be and voted for it.

So, now there is only one more place to try Skara before the Early Access: Poznan, Poland! Skara will be attending the Poznan Games Arena and ZTG as part of Microsoft's ID@XBox program for independent game developers.

Then, the Monday after that, anyone can gain access to Skara on Steam Early Access. Of course, everyone thinking of trying Skara will need to check their computer's specs and remember what an Early Access gameplay is: An early version of a game with a lot of improvement left to go.

An MMO where you actually need skill instead of Character levels? Might be the first MMO after Ultima Online i am going to play!

Hmm, not the first. There are others out there, like Vindictus. Sadly apart from the towns, there's only Instance Dungeons and Raids (up to 24 people).
This game looks good and I'd love to see more Action-MMORPG's, I really fancy an open world though.

Well we are not an MMO, 16 players is not that massively that's why we like to call us a MOV (multiplayer online versus) game!
