London based developer Bossa Studios has released its recent title Decksplash for free on Steam for one week. The catch? If 100K people don't play the game then it's game over.
Decksplash is a title where players battle it out in what is basically Splatoon but with skateboards. In what the company is calling the Splash N' Grab event, the life or death of the product is down to the players. The company have put forward the challenge of getting 100k players to download and play the title during the free week to gauge if it is a game that the community would want. As the game is an online game where players face off against each other having that player base from day one is key to success.
If the number of players is hit then Bossa Studios will release the game into early access right away meaning the now built up community can continue to grow. This is of course if the game does release. Thankfully players will be happy to know as well that if the game is released then all the progress and unlocks will carry over to the full title. With the game featuring leaderboards it's worth aiming for the top and claim your place in Desksplash history. So it's time to decide the fate of the title and vote with your Steam account.
Decksplash is available to play for free right now until 10th November. If the target of 100k players is not met the game will be cancelled.
