ABOUT THIS GAME
Tidal Shock is an aquatic 3rd-person arena shooter. There are submersed weapons to find, dive skins to earn and opponents to liquify. The goal is simple – charge the reactor. Problem is, the closer you are to fully charged, the brighter you glow, turning you into an unavoidable target. Neon commandos will strike, 360 degree battles will rage and bullets will boil, lighting up the abyss.
Will others claim your bounty and steal your win? Can you charge the reactor and fry your competition? Only one way to find out...
4-8 multiplayer arena with one king of the hill objective
7 aquatic weapons classes with 5 rarity levels
Dashes, blocking walls and a rideable torpedo sled!
Balanced for respawning, winner-takes-all tension
Free for all matches with all your Steam friends
Match stats and leaderboard
Scattered around the map are charge cells that you’ll need to collect and bring to the Reactor, a glowing beacon that changes position every 60 seconds. The first player to fully charge the Reactor wins. Each Reactor position creates a new battleground, with different obstacles, map features and item spawns. Fittingly, you can also collect charge from fallen players, so sometimes the best offense is… a good offense. How you approach each Reactor Singularity will decide your fate. Will you race to it immediately to get there first? Will you attempt to predict its next location and set up camp? Will you try to intercept oblivious on their way to deliver charge? Or will you dive in guns blazing and test your mettle directly? Or will you mix it up, and choose your strategy based on your current weapon loadout? We can’t wait to see how gameplay emerges throughout the Tidal Shock Arena. Share your strategies on our Discord please.
SKINS, WEAPONS & ENVIRONMENT
The skins in Tidal Shock don’t represent classes or have powers, but they do represent you. The skin you wear, the weapon you carry and your position in the environment matter. When you shoot or move you glow. The more Reactor charge you carry, the more you glow as well. The environment is foggy and moody with both dark and light areas.
There are 5 skins you can earn in-game and 8 that can be purchased via DLC. As a small indie studio, we chose a DLC skins model to keep the base Tidal Shock game competitively priced.
Tidal Shock is different. We didn’t have a bunch of rules to follow or examples to copy when designing a 360Degree Aquatic Arena . We set a dynamic stage with clear objectives and (hopefully) balanced combat mechanics. How Tidal Shock matches unfold, the winning strategies and styles of play will be set by players – you.
