Mercenary Kings is OUT TODAY!


We've made it! Mercenary Kings in it's complete incarnation is out on Steam TODAY! The game is completed on PC, we have pulled the MAC version for the moment since a game-breaking bug has surfaced. We're very sorry about this but we're working on getting it fixed as soon as possible. If you've already bought the game, you'll have access to the MAC version as soon as we make it available on the Steam store again.

It's an absolute thrill for us and we'd like to thank everyone here on Kickstarter for having it made literally possible for us to get to this point. Your support not only got Mercenary Kings off the ground, but propped up Tribute Games as a studio as well!

Now that the game is launched on Steam we turn our efforts to what's next : the PS4 launch as well as our trip to PAX East in April.

Thanks again and go out and kick some CLAW!

      It's been nearly a month since MK launched on Steam and the Mac version was subsequently removed. Any updates on when we'll have a working release?

      @Andre Gerstmann: The digital soundtrack is ready and coming soon after PAX East. However, you should have received your Steam key for Mercenary Kings last summer, in between July 19 and July 22. It was released for backers 2-3 days prior to the launch on Steam Early Access. Please make sure that you check your email linked to your Kickstarter account. Or it might have been caught by your SPAM filter. If you can't find it, message us or email us at

      FWIW, those of you with PS+ can download it for free this week :) Not a fan of the insta-respawning enemies, BTW.

      Still no release Date of our Backer Digital Download Version and the digital Soundtrack? Really wonders me that you release the game first on Steam and then on PS4 and after that the backers get their version. Other developers released the Steam and Backer Versions on the same day...

      Do anyone know when non-Steam version for pc will be ready?

    6. Mystakill on March 27, 2014

      It's not listed on my HB page either, but I have the early Early Access email from Tribute back in July '13 with the Steam key. I expect that it'll show up on our HB pages when the non-DRMed versions are ready.

      When I saw the new opening for the game, I was really hoping there were now more than 2 main characters. That's too bad there isn't. Anyways, I'm really happy this went gold finally! Congrats TRIBUTE!

      I'm not seeing any steam keys in my HB account, yet I can see the Wizorb ones. Any ideas?

      Gratz guys! That's awesome.

      I am with Erwin, I haven't seen my Steam Key on my humble bundle page either. (nor probably in my gift key that I still am going to give to a friend. $30 tier)

    10. Erwin Shades Kiekens on March 26, 2014

      That's awesome news!
      but I'm not seeing my Steam key on my Humble Bundle page?

      @Carl: sent you a private message.

    12. Carl Robert Rosenbaum on March 26, 2014

      Oh, also I don't have the knife, either.

    13. Carl Robert Rosenbaum on March 26, 2014

      Congrats guys!

      However, I seem to not have gotten both the contibutor gun parts and the achievement. What should I do?

    14. Tribute Games Creator on March 26, 2014

      @dinkledaberry Yes!

    15. dinkledaberry on March 26, 2014

      Way to go guys! So I take it the game will auto-update in my steam library to the full build?
