"Best of OUYA at E3!" -awildpodcastappears

"Is this Featured? This needs to be featured!" -Julie Urhman OUYA CEO

"DubWars on my new OUYA... so sick worth the console alone." @apatheticcaring

"I don't even listen to dubstep, but the way this game uses the visuals and music was pretty amazing" -jimbobway (ouyaforums.net)

"I kinda scoffed at the concept before trying it, but it's totes terrific in the demo! Lots of fun and surprisingly unique in a world full of neon techno-driven dual stick shooters. Voted!" -Cheesehound (Steam Greenlight)

During SHUFFLE MODE the song/level you choose will play through once, then you will "shuffle" to a random new song/level. You keep your current health and will continue shuffling to new random song/levels for as long as you can survive! Bonuses will be given for each successful level completion.

DubWars is a music game that combines the mechanics of a top-down shooter with the power of dubstep and electronica music. Your weapons are synced to the music creating times of intense weapon load outs and calm moments where your survival skills are tested. 

  • Current Beta in OUYA's "Featured" list
  • Showcased at E3 by NYKO Technologies

We love the intensity, anticipation, and especially THE DROP of a really good dubstep song. What we wanted to do is create a game that would capture that experience, amplify it, customize it to each unique song, and make it all interactive.

  • Destroy waves of enemies to the power of Dubstep!
  • Unique mechanics combine twin-stick shooter with music-based gameplay!
  • Minimum of 10 custom-built levels with amazing visuals and effects!
  • Discover and support both independent musicians, and your favorite established artists!
  • Weapon Upgrades - Upgrade your weapons using hard earned coins to take your weapons to the next level! Every weapon in the game will be upgradable. 100+ upgrades will be available!
  • Difficultly Modes - Play in Light, Medium, Hard or Endless!
  • Bosses - Selected stages will also have this "Difficulty Mode" where you will face off against a boss! In these fierce fights the music will endlessly play till you take down the giant monstrosities!
  • Missions, achievements, upgradables, unlockables, and MORE!

In the last 3 months we have journeyed to the darkest recesses of the internet and back, listening to countless hours of Dubstep and every random subcategory you can think of. 

And you know what? We have enjoyed so much amazing music, and even more exciting, we have found the best tracks for a game as cool and as fun as DubWars!

Here's a list of artists we are already working with. Click on any of the images below to check out more from these awesome artists!

Making a game takes money! A whole lot of spending money! The 30k goal we hope to raise will be used for:

  • Artists fees - Licenses, contracts, and royalties.
  • Production costs - Software licenses for Unity3D, Photoshop, etc.
  • Businessy costs - Paying lawyers, filing fees, copyrights.

We also have a few fees associated with publishing onto platforms. Here are the platforms we plan for our release:

We are also looking into XBox, Playstation, and WiiU and will update you with more details as we get them, especially if we can reach some stretch goals!

Twin-stick shooters are better when you have twin-sticks to control with! That’s why we’ve partnered with NYKO, makers of the best controllers in the whole wide world.

This means that for the first six weeks on the Android platform, DubWars will be NYKO exclusive, meaning you will need to use a NYKO controller to play. Want a huge discount on a controller? Check out our $75 NYKO tier, which not only gets you the digital game, digital soundtrack and Swag bag, but also the nifty Playpad Pro controller. Limited supplies, so order quick!

Getting DubWars on another platform? Don’t worry, because the NYKO Playpad will also work on a PC, Mac or Linux build, and is compatible  with a whole bunch of other cool games!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

We've been getting a lot of support from both the gaming and dubstep community. Releasing any game is not easy, there is a lot of optimization to make sure it runs on all the platforms we want to release on, there are a lot of unique gameplay problems as well. Each level is individually tailored to the song, which is a lot of man hours. It means hand animating the triggers and creating each weapon from scratch. We've already built four levels, and we keep getting better and better at it. Depending on which songs we get, making sure each level is unique and entertaining while still fitting in the DubWars mold AND the overall feel of the song will be quite the artistic balancing act.
