About The Skeleton War

The Skeleton War is a multiplayer game designed for up to 8 players to play together and break each other apart. Everyone is a skeleton, but no one is particularly attached to their limbs. Break your friends legs off and take them for yourself. There are two game modes to choose from, Bone Collector and Dye Another Day. So join The Skeleton War today and bring your friends together, by breaking them apart. We hope you have fun!

The Skeleton War Multiplayer

The Skeleton War is a game designed exclusively for multiplayer play. It works best over a Local Area Network, but friends may connect to your game over the internet if you provide them with the external IP address displayed on the Join, Host, and in-game menus. If your computer sits behind a router, you will have to configure your router to forward all traffic on port 7777 to your computer's local IP address (which usually looks something like 192.168.1.x). More detailed instructions on how to do this are available here.

Hey, sorry for the late reply. Unfortunately at this time there are no plans to release the game on Steam. This was done as a student project, so aside from very minor bug fixes, there won't really be any more development on the game at this time.
