Blast Brigade vs. the Evil Legion of Dr. Cread is an explosive, single-player, 2D action-adventure platformer.

Blast Brigade is a colorful 2D action adventure game that combines intense platformer gameplay with metroidvania-style exploration. Assemble a team of super spies and run 'n gun through a tainted paradise island to take down the evil genius Dr.Cread and his army of minions.

Inspired by popcorn action movies from the '80s, Blast Brigade combines the bullet mayhem of run 'n gun platformers with deep, metroidvania-style world exploration. Assemble the team of four playable heroes with their own abilities, switch characters on the go, upgrade weapons, face challenging bosses, and prevent doomsday.

Blast Brigade tells the story of a diverse group of special agents from across the globe that will have to unite against the evil genius Dr. Cread. A seemingly routine mission soon escalates into a mission to save the world, which sees the heroes working together to  safeguard the ancient heritage of an island paradise.

MY.GAMES and Allods Team Arcade are proud to announce the debut of Blast Brigade into Steam Early Access starting today.

After releasing a free demo two weeks ago, players can now experience a substantial part of the final version of the colorful metroidvania platformer with the Early Access version. 

The choice for Early Access was made to help the initial players shape the gameplay experience while also giving them a rewarding game. Blast Brigade strives to offer an excellent blend of accessibility and challenge and as such honing the difficulty curve and pace of the game is essential and this is best achieved with the input from players. 

When it launches into Early Access the game will have two complete acts of the game’s explosive story available and will feature three playable characters: the trigger-happy hero Jeff J. Jefferson, the icily competent ex-KGB agent Shura and the very Galant Galahad. One more character will join during future Early Access updates and  both the narrative and available environments will be further expanded. Regardless, the Early Access launch already offers seven challenging bosses and thirty different enemies to use their arsenal of six different weapons on. Players will initially explore six different biomes which gives the agents a wide variety of different obstacles to overcome with their unique abilities. As players discover the island they will also be able to enhance their character with a variety of different perks and upgrade their base of operations to help them with the preparation of their missions. Players can swap between characters on the fly which is one of the ways the game challenges players with different obstacles that require the unique skill of a specific super agent. During Early Access, more content is planned to be released with substantial updates and quality of life changes based on player feedback to be delivered. 

As a bonus for all players that join the mission during Early Access, they will receive the yet to be announced DLC and additional goodies for free. While the price will not change between Early Access and full launch, a discount is being offered to all players that join the mission during the first week of Early Access.

The heroes will explore the remote island captured by the nefarious Dr. Cread. After many (failed) attempts at world domination, the doctor has now made his lair on the island paradise whilst enslaving its inhabitants to help him build his giant doomsday robot. The Blast Brigade will not only have to defeat the minions of Dr. Cread but also master strange, ancient technology in their quest to save the world.

Players will be controlling four different characters during the course of the game:

  • The American Jeff (J. Jefferson), who has never found a problem he can’t blast his way out of. Using his trusty grenade launcher, Jeff is an all-American hero who always charges  into headlong confrontations with evil-doers and villains.
  • Soviet KGB Agent Alexandra “Shura” Voron infiltrates hostile territory with her grappling hook to take out enemies of the motherland with her sniper rifle. A master manipulator and infiltrator, Shura preferably works from the shadows to achieve her goals.
  • The Scotsman Gavin Henry Gale or “Galahad” is a MI6 spy that was recently captured by Dr. Cread. After being subjected to horrible experiments at the hands of the Doctor, he managed to escape and now uses his cyborg body to wreak havoc on his foes. 
  • Holy Sentinel Vartaxaklahun “Vortex” Paqarnusta works with the Blast Brigade to help liberate her island from Dr. Cread. Wielding Chakrams in a spinning dance of death, Vortex also has rudimentary knowledge of the ancient technology of the island.

From Vortex’s holy chakram to Shura’s grappling hook, the various characters’ special abilities can be used to tackle each situation in a new and exciting way.

Blast Brigade vs. the Evil Legion of Dr. Cread is coming to Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC (Steam) in early 2022 for $19.99/€19,99.
