Block Wars

Block Wars is a local multiplayer (online multiplayer is being considered) game where the players play as e-Celebs who fight in procedurally generated arenas. They shoot at each other with a variety of weaponry so as to get the most kills and please the audience. In each arena, the players can rack up points for each kill they make. This starts a combo meter, which they can boost by doing things to appease the player’s in-game fans. This includes using the weapon their fans enjoy seeing, setting off fireworks, doing stunts, and much more. The player with the most points wins.

Features

  • Fast shooter action
  • Quirky characters
  • Procedurally generated arenas
  • Faux fan admiration
  • Combo system
