Posted by , 26 December 2013 at 8:45 pm UTC / 5447 views
Door Kickers is an innovative Real-Time Tactics game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team. 

It's a pretty decent game even for an alpha version, I recommend it that's for sure.


  • 2D, top down graphics
  • Real Time with Free Pause
  • No DRM
  • PC oriented (Windows/Mac/Linux), with handhelds as later developments
  • Single Player (but MP might come later)
  • No turns, no hexes, no action points or awkward interfaces
  • Non-linear levels, freeform gameplay
  • Mission editor and modability
  • Unlimited gameplay via mission and campaign generators

Future stuff
  • Selectable entry points so you don’t always ring the front door - DONE – IT’S IN ALPHA 4!
  • Larger and multi-storey locations
  • More tactical planning options
  • Troopers inventory customization – MIGHT MAKE IT IN NEXT BUILD
  • Melee combat, arrests and surrendering bad guys
  • Guard Dogs and other enemy types
  • Oh yeah, also lots of AI improvements

Here's what they added into Alpha 7:
- Replays!
- Major improvement to enemy AI. They will seek cover. They will move around. Even we can’t predict what their doing.
- New models and animations for troopers/enemies (replaced old ones entirely)
- Added “Delete” option to final waypoint: deletes path up to the previous waypoint or the entire path otherwise
- Added personalized trooper portraits for the Stuff of Legends price tier
- Improvements to the random mission generator
- Various gameplay/control/graphics improvements
- Modding / Structure changes: Can use secondary weapons for beaching (modding request)
- Moved game files on Linux from ~home/DoorKickers to ~home/.local/share/DoorKicker
- Game should run smoother on older hardware
- Fixed a crash from 0.0.60
- Fixed accuracy being incorrectly calculated for shotguns
- Fixed a bug where troopers’ names were not visible

You can grab it DRM free from them directly which includes a Steam key (so no reason not to buy from them directly!).

I actually did some early testing for them and they seem like pretty decent guys as well!
