It's Summer - depending on where you live. A time where us Brits moan about the weather while the rest use it as a valid excuse to cook meat outside and spray each other with water. Battle Splash may not feature both of those Summer staples, but it does include to one most likely to help you lose weight.
From lone developer Nguyen Binh Hung (or Hung Mai to us Westerners), comes a third-person shooter that turns a good ol' fashioned water fight into something on a far grander scale.
Devised as a family-oriented shooter, Battle Splash puts water physics at its core. Players team up to 'eliminate' the opposition with well-thrown water bombs and other water-based weaponry. Falling in-line with the family-friendly setting, player characters are noticably anime-esque in style while donning far more clothing than you'd expect in this situation. It's like a less age-restricted version of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash!
Rather than go the standard Early Access route, the first playable version of Battle Splash is up on popular indie game sharing site Itch.Io with a 'name your own price' payment model. While the developer mentions how modding will allow for far bigger battles on capable machines, the base version supports up to 32 fighters across 4 teams and two maps.
With four years of development already behind it, Battle Splash is considered a 'Zero Budget' title by its sole developer. If you happen to like what you see, considering throwing them a coffee or two each month on Patreon.
