Door Kickers Real Time Tactics Alpha 7 Released

Posted by , / 5773 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!
