‘MisBits’ Rolls into Steam Early Access Today

2 min read

Digital entertainment studio 3BlackDot is proud to announce the colorful, fast-paced and fun multiplayer game, MisBits, is launching today for PC on Steam Early Access for $14.99. MisBits challenges players to roll/switch/control your toy head through colorful maps to find (or steal!) different bodies – each offering unique abilities that will alter the way you play. MisBits will see a full launch on PC this summer.

MisBits is a lively stylized multiplayer, action-driven sandbox for warriors, builders, and creators alike. Head roll, body switch, and wield absurd pickups, through modes like Playhouse, Deathmatch, and Kick Brawl. And coming soon, players can build and edit their own minigames.

MisBits emphasizes quick sessions and action gameplay based around a very unique mechanic of mismatching toy heads with different, changeable, toy bodies to switch-up play styles during competitive play. The action takes place on maps full of other props to pick up as weapons, or traps to avoid, in formats such as deathmatch, racing, platforming – or anything else conceived!

Additional bodies with unique skills, heads, weapons, and skins will be added over the coming months, plus new modes including ToyBox, a game creation experience where players can build new minigames or edit existing maps/modes with their own rules.

GAME MODES
Depending on the map/mode, multiplayer minigames ranges from 2-16 players. Some exploration areas and the building tools can all be experienced in single player.

  • Playhouse – roll from room to room, try different head/body combos, play mini games, and discover hidden secrets

  • Deathmatch – knock competitor heads off their bodies, or just take them out, for points, street cred, and MisBits fame

  • Team Deathmatch – all the deathmatch fun played in teams!

  • Kick Brawl – best described as “combat-style soccer,” compete to score goals where heads – and the ball – will roll!

  • Arcade – curated, ever-growing, collection of custom maps designed for new challenges like death runs, racing, King-of-the-Hill and many more. New ones added every week!

  • ToyBox (coming soon!) – our game creator system gives you access to every in-game asset, to build your own experiences or edit existing maps/modes with your rules.

MisBits was a finalist for DreamHack Anaheim’s Indie Rumble, and the game was featured at PAX East to lines of eager players.
