Broforce Unites 80's Action Bros In 2D Side-scrolling Broship

Brobocop, the Brominator, Indiana Brones, Rambro, Bro Dredd, Bromando, Macbrover and more fan favorites join forces in Broforce.

Are your games not "bro" enough? Do you yearn for more gratuitous explosions and fist-bumps in your sidescrollers? Then Broforce may be the game for you. Broforce is a love letter to 80's and 90's action heroes, the kind of men that worked out, carried a big gun, and would go through hell and back for their bros. The four-player multiplayer sidescroller is reminiscent of the old Contra games, with just a hint of Soldat, and you can check out the Brototype right here in your web browser.

"A ridiculously violent platform game about being awesome action heroes from the 80s and 90s while slaying satanic terrorists and aliens while unraveling an evil plot to destroy the planet while dealing with being awesome action heroes from the 80s and 90s."

The game features Brobocop, the Brominator, Indiana Brones, Rambro, Bro Dredd, Bromando, Macbrover, Snake Broskin, BA Broracus, Bro Hard and many more "bro-ified" fan favorites. Developer Free Lives promises that the final game will include "A story filled with revenge and bromance that spans the continents and outer space, Local bro-op play and online multiplayer bro-op, and a huge cast of action heroes, each with distinctive attacks and special brobilities."

Furthermore, For every terrorist killed in Broforce, a terrorist will die in real life.

Free Lives is a small South African independent developer, who is ambitiously aiming to release the game in 2013. The developer encourages you to "brote" for it on Steam Greenlight. If you're a sucker for 80's throwbacks, and Blood Dragon has left you craving more over-the-top "brotastic" action, then you should definitely check this one out.

GAH! If I read one more word with "bro" in it I'm going KILL something.

Sorry, Internet is being a bitch.

That should help you get through this game then since that is all you'll be doing.

OT: Dumb fun game that looks alright. I forgot all about Soldat, I didn't think it was popular anymore.

Well I hope that they also included Broce Campell. It's too bad this is before Brosif Gordon Levitt's time.

I'd much rather be killing this games developers. Or better yet, whoever it was you started this whole "bro" nonsense in the first place.

I'm not sure how i feel about a video game I'll need to take a protine shake before playing. Also, I don't even lift, so I'm not sure if I'll even be able to run this game by myself.

Yeah, I thought it was cute when it first started, but ever since 'bro's before hoes' and 'bro-up' it's just gotten out of hand. A forced joke that's become slang with many.

Don't you mean a Brotine shake? [/horriblepun]

Well despite the horrid visuals it actually looks fun, now if only we could get an HD version right along side.
I know graphics aren't suppose to matter but when Pong is starting to look like competition you are really fucking pushing it.

Broce Lee is unavailable, however, Brosif Stalin is on call.

Or would you rather have Brocidon, king of the Brocean?

I hear Edgar Allen Bro is also nearby.

So you'd rather settle with a misspelled ladies' garment, then?

Your wish became true. On the current build available for playing, Bruce Campbell is the last character to be unlocked. And his special makes him go chainsaw-crazy.
