A downloadable game for Windows

The Story

Have you ever been afraid of a monster in the dark? Elusive, hiding under your bed or inside the closet, skulking out of view whenever your parents shine a light. But you know it's there, lurking in the shadows, just barely out of sight. What if that monster is real?

That monster is very real for 8 year old Elias. It's coming for him. It is waiting, in the darkness, in it's stronghold. Waiting, and plotting and biding it's time, slowly exerting it's influence all throughout his bedroom. Of course his parents don't believe him, so there's only one option left: Call in the Orb Warriors!

In OrbWars, the players assume the role of the Orb Warriors, a fictional brand of popular action figures. They are humanoid robots who throw their powerful Orbs to combat their enemies. The game is set in the imagination of a boy called Elias. He is a regular eight-year-old by day, but at night he turns into Commander Z, master of the Orb Warriors. With the help of his favourite toys, he confronts his fears and fights against the henchmen of his greatest adversary: the Monster in the Dark.


OrbWars will be available on Steam in Early Access later this year. You can be one of the first people to play a demo of OrbWars with the two versus modes "Flag Attack" and "Last Toy Standing" for free!


OrbWars supports keyboard input, but playing with a gamepad is highly recommended. Any modern gamepad using XInput should work. You need one gamepad for every person playing, so up to 4 controllers are required.
