Squids From Space is a team-based PvP top-down shooter where humans and the sinister Squid aliens wage war for the future of the Earth!

Squids From Space is a team-based tactical PvP top-down shooter where the Earth is under attack from a race of sinister aliens -- The Squids! Taking place in a retro 1950's setting, the people of Earth must unite and fight back, pitting human weapons of war against the Squids' bizarre technology in a battle for the future of the planet!

This weekend only, (until 10am, Oct. 16th), you can download and check out Squids From Space for FREE on Steam Early Access. Plus, during the same time period, you will have the chance to buy the game at a 20% discount from its original price and you will receive a limited-time Halloween Customization pack for your Human and Squid avatars.

There is no better time than now to grab your friends and battle as “Team SQUID” aliens or “Team Human” military on the way to save or capture civilians, play defense at your team’s bases, and capture the enemy's Commander or the slimey aliens' beloved Squid Brain. The action is fast-paced and non-stop, but the tide of battle can turn at any moment, as each team gathers materials to upgrade and unlock new weapons and vehicles for their entire team.

To celebrate the free weekend, Fun Bits is updating Squids from Space with 2 NEW levels to conquer -- the Evergreen Trail and the Mars Crash Site.  It has also added several new weapons, such as the Chemical Grenade Launcher, the Mini-squid Gun, and Microshard Accelerator. The Human team also has a brand new assault Mech, as well as several new 4x4 vehicles to help the Humans turn Squids into ink splats.

Key Features:

  • Play as a human and defend Earth, or play as a Squid and conquer it!
  • Engage in chaotic fire-fights in a light-hearted and colorful universe.
  • Battles last 10~15 minutes, making it easy to play as much or as little as you want.
  • As a human, blast your foes with shotguns, rocket launchers, grenades or bundles of dynamite!
  • As a Squid, disintegrate your enemies with deadly rays, or pilot a massive Crawler Tank!
  • Out-strategize your opponents by collecting resources and unlocking better weapons for your team.
  • Blow up cars, gas stations, oil barrels, and plenty of other things as you wage war across the map.
  • AI bots with different personalities automatically fill empty team slots.
  • Plenty of support-style weapons to choose from, for those who are teamwork-inclined!

Squids From Space is currently available on Steam Early Access.
