With a demo available on Steam and Native Linux support, Counterpick Labs looks like a fun addition to the platform fighter genre and it's going to be free too.

The idea that you get to build your own fighter in Counterpick Labs sounds quite fun, and pretty different from the static roster you usually get from these types of games, so it's worth keeping an eye on. Nice to see a developer try something just a bit different in an established genre.

Check out the trailer:

  • Smooth platform fighter action - Combo your opponents and knock them offstage to secure the win. Play locally or online with rollback netcode. Free to play with no way to buy power.
  • Build your perfect fighter - Over 200 (and growing!) loadout combinations, plus countless cosmetic options. For a tanky, ranged build, pair Oleg's might with the Warp Mine's teleport, and hurl Chakrams to deal damage from afar. Or dominate the skies by combining Space Suit's triple jump with Jet Boots' maneuverability and the momentum-altering recoil of the Flame Cannon.
  • Classic & roguelike combat - Enjoy intense, skill-based combat in Classic mode. Or try your luck in the roguelike Arena mode, where you'll earn powerful upgrades as you fight, from elemental weapon auras to ricocheting projectiles to dramatic stat boosts.

Check it out on Steam. A demo is available and it enters Early Access on July 12th.
