Early Access Progress
Want to see where the game is headed? We'll be keeping this Progress Graph up-to-date throughout Early Access. You'll be able to see which levels we're focusing on and how complete they are with each of our four characters!
Current Early Access Status
Playable Levels: Warehouse
Playable Characters: Joseph
Recent Updates: 4/18/2014 - Early Access 1! Children of Liberty is now available on Steam Early Access. This build includes the first playable character, Joseph, and level, the Warehouse, which acts as our tutorial. If you played the game in an earlier form, new features you'll notice are polished animations & textures; Red Line to show where you can run; Blue Line to show where you can hide; enemy AI which will react to your current position and can move between tracks; visible enemy sprites from Front, Side, and Back; new voiceover; and greatly enhanced performance. We are releasing this first build at a slightly lower graphical setting than max to gauge general system compatibility. Expect a greater selection of settings as we update and full video customization by beta!
2.5D Stealth Gameplay: Lurk in the shadows! Children of Liberty features 2D gameplay in a 3D world. Run, jump, and turn along the Red Freedom Trail with smooth and responsive controls; hide, sneak, and lean around corners along the Blue Freedom Trail to gain strategic positioning against Redcoats and attack when the time is right!
Traditional Animation: Thousands of frames of hand drawn animation, combined with accurate-to-reality constructed environments and realtime lighting, bring the characters of Children of Liberty to life!
Four Playable Characters: By the end of early access, all four characters will be playable. See our Early Access Progress Graph to see how this is going.
Multiple OS Compability: Are you an Ubuntu user? Mac OSX? Windows PC Gaming Master Race? We've got you covered! Children of Liberty is already compatible with all 3 major PC operating systems.
Community: Want to make money off of showing our game to the world? Go for it! You have our permission to record and monetize Children of Liberty's gameplay on Youtube, Twitch, and other video streaming services.
Four Stories: Whether you're playing as Joseph, the bratty Bostonian with a wooden sword and a double jump; or Ally with a powerful slide and a strategic wall run; or Doug with a stunning ground pound and powerful counter-attack; or Sarah with a penchant for stringing Redcoats up by their ankles via her yoyo; Children of Liberty has something for everyone! Children of Liberty has an all-star voice cast, including Sarah Elmaleh (Gone Home), Sean Chiplock (Freedom Planet), Chris Rando (Dance Central 2), Ashly Burch (Borderlands 2), and more.
Historical Accuracy: Historical accuracy is at the forefront of Children of Liberty's narrative. We're specifically leaving the narrative out of Early Access to keep it spoiler-free, but that will all change at launch. Find Codex Pages scattered around the environment to learn more about Colonial Boston. Find other hidden goodies to increase your end-of-level grade. Did you miss something? Go back at any time and try again!
Challenge Your Friends: Cloud Saves, Steam Leaderboards*, and a built-in Speedrun Timer give Children of Liberty its competitive element. Replayable Challenge Rooms, based on specific characters and locations, will also hook directly into the leaderboards. We plan to launch one or two Challenge Rooms with the game and more as DLC afterward.
