DeadCore is a Platformer-FPS featuring some environmental puzzles. The main idea of the game is you must climb a gigantic Tower as fast as possible while avoiding to be kicked down by its security system (robots, turrets...): on your way to the top, you will eventually figure out the truth behind this strange universe.

Now that the game is not anymore in alpha stage we won't give Steam keys to Desura users, sorry guys we just can't.

Sorry for spamming the comments :P
When I speedrun the levels, there are alliterative routes you can take to go faster however I am not sure if you are meant to be able to do them? + Are the 3sec lb times getting removed? or are you going to reset the lbs when you patch it?

Yes, unlocking the alternate route is meant to get new possibilities to improve your times : )

About the times made using some major exploit of the game, we don't know for sure yet, the best thing to do would be to contact players directly and ask them the permission first... The last solution we would want to use is resetting the leaderboards : /

We are trying a last trial with Desura before asking all our (alpha° Desura players to send us a mail with their Desura key to get a Steam one...

Really sorry for the delay guys : (

Hello Zurgery,

Well in fact this an example of non consistent UI design ^^

Actually the 3 levels designed by our backers are those under the 'Backers' tab, so cliking on this doesn't lead to another level (sorry for the confusing element : / )

Oh I see...
As I'm new to this game. Are the Desura and Steam LBs connected?
Also will multi player be developed in future stages of the game? I know this is hard to do but just wondering.

Many thanks

No Steam uses its own leaderboards system : /

And sorry to tell you that but if we are very realistic, multiplayer is not an option for us right now... We will keep polishing the game taking in account all the feedback from players and we will also add a few maps in the next months ; )
