NOTE: Door Kickers is currently in Alpha, playable but not finished yet. But our users and the press think its already very fun and addictive! And there's a lot of gameplay in 35 levels.
By buying the game now you will receive the current DRM-free version, future updates and the full game, upon its release, at a major price discount!
A Steam Activation Key is also included (but optional).
Door Kickers is an innovative realtime strategy game that puts you in charge of a SWAT team and lets you command them during a tactical intervention.
Analyze the situation, plan team routes, choose equipment and breach points and coordinate multiple troopers to reach the hostage room before the bad guys get to press that trigger.
It may sound daunting, and like real world CQB combat, it sure is. But most levels can be completed in minutes and on the fly improvisation works. Achieving the perfect planning, getting the mission done with no false steps, that’s a skill harder to master.

“Door Kickers is a very fun, very simple to pick up but difficult to master strategy with real time SWAT tactics.” GamersDissent about Alpha 4
“If you’re a fan of the SWAT games, Rainbow Six, Frozen Synapse, (...) then you’ve probably got Door Kickers pencilled in your diary, perhaps even accompanied by a couple of exclamation marks.” PC Gamer covers Alpha 3
“It’s a thing of beauty and manages to capture the planning and satisfying execution of more complex strategy games, as well as the gung-ho and the popping-off of growly man in military shooters. (...) It’s probably the best man-shootery game I’ve played in years.” Indie Statik on Alpha 3
