A downloadable game for Windows



Sit back and grab your gamepads: xDasher is a frantic local coop game about dashing through monsters with the proper colour to get higher combos and scores.

Up to 4 players join a team of Dashers and set off into a dim dungeon. Their quest is to eliminate all monsters lurking within. Eventually, they will be haunted by a ghoulish, four-headed beast and must face it in multiple, thrilling boss fights.


  • Up to 4 Players Local Coop
  • Single Player Mode
  • Online Leaderboards
  • Full Controller Support (XBox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and other)
  • Simple Controls (2-"Button"-Game)
  • No Story Twaddle


This is a game where co-op actually means cooperative, because all players share a health bar and any monster encounter requires every player to do their part. 


The gameplay is entirely colour coded, meaning each player can only damage monsters highlighted in their colour. Players need to attack monsters alternatingly and within a small time frame to kill them. Thus, xDasher evokes old-school couch co-op feelings, where players start yelling at each other, given the fierce battle against time, the hustle of aligning their tactics and knowing they will only make it as a team. 


Each stage is hand crafted and each run consists of a number of randomly picked stages. 

The demo includes a tutorial and three levels. In the finished game there will also be boss battles which put your team to the ultimate test.


In the spirit of arcade competition, the teams also fight for the highest score on an online leaderboard. 

As a team, players increase the score by killing monsters and advancing through the dungeon. As an individual each player can earn special awards to show off their prowess.
