NEIGHBORHORDE is a couch co-op shoot-em-up where you and your team of friends use toys as weapons and game-changing superpowers to try to survive the attacks of evil robots and zombie Abe Lincolns.

You and your pals are playing too many videogames, and Mom said it’s time to go outside for a bit. Little does she know the dangers spawning outside in Neighborville. Portals open up from another dimension. Evil robots, dragons, wizards, and zombie Abe Lincoln burst out from these portals and start attacking you and your pals! Luckily, you have your trusty wooden sword and your pal saved some bottlerockets from 4th of July. How is that going to help? Use your imagination, kid!

Each night you'll unlock more of the 40+ crazy toys to add to your arsenal and become a more powerful team by choosing from 40+ game-changing superpowers. Break open presents found around the map to find the rad weapons you've chosen. Dash around as flames blast out from your feet with the new "Hot Feet" superpower you just picked.

You think to yourself, "No baddie can stop me now!" However, as you get stronger, so does the horde of spooky enemies. Each night you'll face a randomly-selected but ever-increasing combination of enemies including goop-tossing Lunch Ladies, magic-blasting Wizards, and axe-wielding Abe Lincolns. As you're bashed apart by the onslaught of baddies, you realize the only way to survive is the power of friendship; staying close to your team in the FRIENDZONE is the only way you'll regain your health.

Since there are 80+ weapons and superpowers, and tons of enemies, no game is the same as the last and you’ll always have a new strategy to try. Blast bottle rockets at evil dodgeballs. Blow a bubblegum-shield to protect your team. Catch the incoming robots on fire with your hair dryer flamethrower. Smash a wizard's face off with your trusty wooden sword. Can you defeat the bad guys before bedtime?


Can I play alone/single-player?
Yes, but it's much funner with your pals (or strangers)!

How many weapon/toys and superpowers are there in the game?
40 of each currently. That's a lot of crazy combo possibilities!

Are you planning on translating the game's text to any other languages? 
Depending on the amount of interest in other languages, we'd love to. Let us know what languages you want!

What are you using to make this game?
GameMaker: Studio, yo! For a 3d game? FOR A 3D GAME!

Why does the hairdryer shoot flames out? Why does the electric guitar shoot lightning out? Why does the dog doo explode? 
Faulty wiring I guess?


We at Fermenter Games have wanted to build a co-op game we could play together on each other's couches for a long time, so NEIGHBORHORDE is our dream project. It’s been really fun so far making this thing with my best friends, and it’s even funner to play test. We miss the days of impromptu LAN parties, so we want Neighborhorde to fit on your shelf between Towerfall Ascension, Mario Kart, and Sports Friends.

Stay up to date with the development here on our website, or on Twitter at @fermentergames. See you in Neighborville!
