Brigador is an isometric vehicle action game developed by indie developer Stellar Jockeys. Originally expected to be released late Summer 2014, it went into Steam Early Access on October 20th, 2015, releasing in full on June 2nd, 2016. Players will be able to choose from one of forty-five vehicles along with a weapon loadout in order to destabilize the city of Solo Nobre on the outer colony planet of Novo Solo after the death of the popular Great Leader. Players will be able to discover tactics and unlock new vehicles and weapons as they clear the city or die trying, then do it all over again (akin to a roguelike).
• Choose from mechs, tanks and antigrav vehicles to pilot
• Wide range of weapons for different play styles
• Twenty-one story missions in Campaign and another twenty different levels in Freelance
• Completely destructible environments
• Randomized faction & enemy spawning
• Short, high intensity playthroughs: every run is different
In most missions both in Campaign and Freelance mode, the player has a choice of three main objectives:
- Destroy troop garrisons.
- Destroy all ammo depots in an area.
- Destroy large defensive batteries.
Doing any or all of the above will earn the player in-game currency, which can be used to unlock new weapons, vehicles, and pilots to use in Freelance mode.
Stellar Jockeys plans to make all the assets to the game available and invite players to create their own levels.
Visual and audio style
The reveal trailer implies the game will feature a distinct audio/visual theme of neon colors contrasted against a dark urban environment with music composed of synth arpeggios. The music from the first trailer was composed by Jack Monahan and can be heard on his Soundcloud page, while the game's soundtrack and second trailer theme were composed by Makeup and Vanity Set.
At 28 seconds into the reveal trailer, a hidden message is very briefly displayed on screen. It reads:
"Destroy any and all orbital defense arrays municipal infrastructure providing power to same are also legitimate targets contractee is authorized to engage and eliminate any and all localized resistance on discretionary basis solo nobre concern (henceforth referred to as SNC) releases contractee from all likely governmental, civic, or courts martial suits or war crimes that may be charged in the aftermath of the assault SNC cannot guarantee this contract as binding under interstellar law but is valid on all affiliated corporate colonies good luck"
Due to a lurking trademark issue over the name "Matador", Stellar Jockeys finally decided in March 2014 to officially change the name to "Brigador", which is Portuguese for "fighter".
In addition to the base game, the special edition of Brigador comes bundled with an audio book adaptation of the game's plot, and the full two-hour long OST by Makeup & Vanity Set.
