Post news RSS DASH Set To Launch June 2019 (Trailer Reveal)

We are proud to announce that DASH: Danger Action Speed Heroes will be launching June 2019 in Early Access on Steam and Discord Store. I originally started the project alone, streaming and developing all day all week. Later came Phil and Concerned and the game grew in quality and ambition. After over 14 months of straight development we are ready to present the Early Access build to the world. The community is awesome. The build is solid.

Let's start this milestone post with a screenshot of an announcement I posted today on our Discord server index

It's Launch Time!

Yes. It's time. We're ready. After more than 14 months from dream to demo to alpha to beta we are as ready as can be. Together with the most awesome community of level creators, speedrunners, platformer fans and other mighty creatures we have created our very own and unique take on the "maker" genre + the action and speed genre as well! It's launch time because we have a solid build. Working smoothly on Windows and Linux. Good controller support. Play with your keyboard if you prefer that too. More than 200 user levels with thousands of plays. Decent amount of polish. Server is alive and hungry for more data. That's why we hope for Early Access launch to happen on Steam and Discord Store Thursday the 6th of June 2019 8 am PDT. So spread the word, DASHer:

Final Release Candidate Up On Test Branch

Last Friday we uploaded the final release candidate for the Early Access release. It's live on the pipe on Steam if you would like to be one of the ~400 testers who were there from the very beginning (free key via our Discord server). You will have to buy the Early Access game if you want to keep playing but you still have some weeks to explore and upload/beat levels in the free beta build. Yes, your levels will continue to remain as the game launches Early Access for new users to play!

Some notes for build 2002 rc 05:

  • Now displaying some info during load screen and pause menu to inform (new) players of features which may be further away in the experience, yet are interesting to put in mind

pause menu

  • Pause menu’s title and level description now has a background to make the header more visible/entact.
  • Max Leap’s sprite wasn’t showing as a tile in the Alien theme during editor. Now he’s back and beautiful


  • The editor now remembers which tile you are using/building with as you enter and exit preview mode. You no longer have to shift through the tiles to get back to the one you were using as you pressed the preview button.
  • The Best Rated filter is now improved and 100% correct. Before this build this playlist was showing some not always well rated levels

Early Access Is Perfect For DASH

Not only is DASH a community-driven and community-based project and game, it's also being released in the best format for evolving games that need cool players and community members! There is simply no doubt that DASH would be half as good if it weren't for our top Mods and players (Buenaventura, Concerned, Xaaf, Mr. Joshua McLean, and all the other peeps with awesome names).
