Broforce: 8 bit run and gunner with 80's and 90's movie heroes


#1

Didn’t see a thread for it and it should have one.

Still in beta phase, but greenlit for Steam.

It’s a run and gun game in the style of Contra/Metal Slug, with enviroments similar to Terraria.
The best part is, the characters are legendary movie heroes from the 80s and 90s.

Here is the Feb update trailer to start you off…

Here is the link to the Brototype, which you can try out for free and its a simple exe file

These are the available Bros…
Each has a different regular weapon and a different special attack (which has limited uses) as well as some have different movement attributes.

Nebro/Mr. Anderbro
Not much info yet…

Which shows that he has a special jump, his regular attack is a melee attack like Brade and his special is a bullet deflection shield.

Brochete (No info yet, just the trailer)
Bronan the Barbarian (No info yet, just the trailer)

Try the Brototype and see if you like the game. It’s actually pretty fun and the full version will have up to 4 player co-cop, many other levels and other goodies.


#2

This is awesome!


#3

Holy shit this is like The Outfoxies but on steroids


#4

No JCVD or Steven Seagal?!?! NO BUY!!! :mad:


#5

The developers mentioned they are sad they haven’t put in JCVD yet.
They were thinking of Timebro or Universal Broldier, so I’m sure he will come in time.

Speaking of Universal, GN-13 is in the game as a boss.
“I’m all ears, soldier!”

#6

Sold after hearing that :party:
Tong Bro as a boss?


#7

Maybe in time!.. But I can confirm that Jason Brohees will be a boss. And is that Bro-Man? Or Broger from Highlander?

#8

Looks awesome, will try demo tonight.


#9

/v/ dropped the ball so hard. They still didnt make any progress on BroQuest right?


#10

This game is the shit


#11

i’d really love for this game to have a co-op mode. it sort of looks like a metal slug with an extra cool factor


#12

Full version has a 4 man co-op. As well as a level editor, that you can make and share with others. And a “Brofort” where you and your bros can hang out and defend from enemies. And much more. If you buy the 15 dollar game now, you can get the most up to date version… Which I will be doing very soon.

If you read the full site, it’s definitely more than just a simple run and gunner.

Forgot to mention another Bro(s).

Boondock Bros.

http://www.freelives.net/images/Images/Boondock_Screenshot1.png

Strength: There are two of them.
Weakness: Twice the amount of bodies to catch bullets with.
Special Ability: Summon BRO DUCE! The Boondock Bros’ terrifying, gun-weilding father.
Unique Tactic: Use your bro’s death to fuel your fraternal rage and increase your fire power, then re-summon him.

Here is the Mr. Anderbro video


#13

I think the trailer indicated that there is online Bro-op and some sort of deathmatch mode.


#14

Ya I just noticed in the Brotrix video, that it shows off 4 bro bro-op.


#15

my shirt came off while I was viewing the trailer.


#16

Do want.


#17

Metal Slug on crack basically.


#18

Looks great! I remember downloading like an alpha of the game but I never played it.

I’d like to see Jack Broer, but they’re only limiting the characters to 80s-90s heroes.


#19

Needs more Broshiro


#20

I’m playing Rambro
