Deadly Venoms is an arcade-style brawler influenced by 80s Kung Fu movies and HipHop!

Battle waves of street punks, undead ninjas, flaming skull heads and roundhouse kick your way through 10 levels of fast paced, hard as Chuck Norris gameplay! Featuring arcade quality pixel art and a funkyass soundtrack from top videogame musicians such as Eirik Shurke (Spelunky/Hotline Miami). Deadly Venoms is heart pumping retro arcade action mixed with modern console-level replay value. Platforms: PC & Mac, with more to be announced.

  • Drop down mechanic: clear the waves, defeat the boss - drop straight down into the next stage & continue the fight!
  • Retro Arcade look and feel: a homage to late 80s/early 90s Arcade classics such as Double Dragon, Ghouls N Ghosts, Kung Fu Master.
  • Different every time: procedurally generated enemy positions, wave types and behaviours make for a different experience - every playthrough!
  • Modern console style gameplay: level up characters with in-game experience or dojo training mini-games. Unlock achievements. Compete for online high scores.
  • Dynamic Soundtrack: get hit & down to your last HP? The Hiphop track turns off the music & bass and strips down to just the drums for dramatic effect. Grab the HP power up & the bass & music gets added back to the mix.
  • Arcade/Platform style puzzle elements per stage: each stage has a simple puzzle to unlock. Complete all the stages puzzles to unlock a bonus stage.

Testing out some action in the Undead Dojo!

Deadly Venoms is currently around 18-20% complete and we need your help to finish the fight! We started development by getting some simple movement and collisions detection for the characters.

Parallax Scene Test: Metro XX

Once that was working and feeling good, we doubled down on the visual style of the game - check out the parallax scrolling above! Next we commissioned four tracks of funky music to add to the scenes and the whole game's identity started to solidify.

Parallax Scene Test: City Cemetery

We now have three completed scenes, nine music tracks, playable characters and hoards of enemies to bash and beat up! But there's plenty more to do. With ten unique stages planned plus training areas to level up your characters, shops to buy upgrades & in-game vinyl records, bosses to master and a story to unravel .... this is where we need your help and support. Please consider backing on Kickstarter & voting for us on Greenlight!
