Description

CHOP is a 2D, highly brutal party game with tons of gore and fast-paced action.

History

The first prototypes were made back in 2015. The idea was to build something competitive and fun to play in the same room, something players miss from the 90's. Indeed, online multiplayer tends to be the only option to enjoy games with friends nowadays. We also wanted CHOP to stand out from those party game that are too soft and lack impact : it has this extra thing that makes you grasp your gamepad after a few seconds.

Features

  • Rush Out : the game offers a unique twist with this mode. Here, no matter how many players you kill. Your goal is to rush out through your portal as fast as possible. Don't worry, you still need to kill, as it's the only way to open the portal. It closes if you die, so you'll be under a lot of pressure when it comes to escaping. Don't mess around, just kill someone and rush out !
  • One hit to kill, respawn almost instantly : CHOP gives a feeling close to the constant adrenaline rush you can experience in fast FPS.
  • Blood and guts in a world torn asunder, with a comic book vibe : it's for anyone who likes gore, comics, post-apo, and who's looking for a supercharged party game.
  • Multiple ways to kill : dash and slice through your opponent, throw your sword and impale him on a wall or grab him and tear him apart with your bare hands. Or maybe grab this ridiculously big gun and obliterate all scumbags around ?
  • Choose your fighting style : call back your sword with your mind, control it like a homming missile, teleport yourself or just take two swords instead of one.
  • Glorious dismemberments, delightful executions, silly gory graphics all wrapped up in a comic book style.
  • Swords will fly, bodies will be chopped, friendships will break !
