About GUILTY GEAR

About this game

Jump back to the 1990s and experience the Guilty Gear franchise at its very roots with this re-release of the 1998 title, Guilty Gear. Enjoy the classic experience and relive what fighting games felt like back in those eras!

A Classic Title

Guilty Gear doesn't feature any brand-new features to make new-age and instead focuses on the brutality of the mechanics back in those days. Unleash furious never-ending combos and use the strongest character to your advantage — everything is as it was back in 1998.

Sakkai!

Use the deadly Sakkai to your advantage and end the match immediately — an instant-kill ability that can turn the tide in your favor... or against it.

The First 13

Take control of the original cast of 13 characters, featuring Axl Low, Chipp Zanuff, Dr. Baldhead, Kliff Undersn, Ky Kiske, May, Millia Rage, Potemkin, Sol Badguy, Zato-1, and three unlockable characters! Test your mettle against them, and see if you have what it takes to defeat them.

Steam Deck Compatibility

Make your Steam Deck a retro console and play Guilty Gear on the go! Although not as bulky as old arcade machines, you’ll be able to enjoy Guilty Gear anywhere and everywhere, as the game has been rated as Steam Deck Playable!

DISCLAIMER: Guilty Gear does not support online functionality.

In a world occupied by two kinds of 2D fighters (Capcom's and everyone else's), you have to be cut from a different kind of cloth in order to survive in this hostile environment. In development for almost three years, Guilty Gear is just that - a 2D fighter with enough originality and flavor to earn its own place in this once-dominant genre.

The gameplay and moves are sort of jarring by modern Guilty Gear standard with even X2 #Reload feeling a lot more modern, but it is still a decently fun game in and of it self. It helps that the Steam version can be run DRM free by placing a file named steam_appid.txt with "850980" (no quotes)(the Steam games ID) written inside the file. You can then ZIP the folder and install it on other computers you may have without the need for Steam. I even got it running on Linux with a Wine AppImage and it didn't require any special setup!
