Hello lovely Touch Arcade forum dwellers!

I've been a bit quiet recently, and that's entirely down to spending all my spare time beavering away on FIST OF AWESOME. The game is coming along nicely and feedback from the lucky few to have played it is quite exceptional!

To make up for my relative silence, here's a few new screenshots to cast your vision balls over:


Winners from a competition I ran, check my blog for more details!


Taken from the medieval time period in the game.

The release of FIST OF AWESOME is still a few months away, the engine is largely finished but the art and animation will take some time to complete! It's without question the most fun I've ever had developing a game though, and also the most epic and rewarding. Thanks for all the messages of support so far, really looking forward to showing you even more stuff as it progresses!

Lots of love,

Nicoll x

Hi folks! So today I confirmed an Android version of FIST OF AWESOME, and released some alpha footage:


I also launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the rest of development. That was when things went a little crazy. In just under 12 hours it's made 14% of the goal, has been tweeted about over 200 times and is now featured in the Staff Picks section of Kickstarter.

I thought you guys might enjoy checking it out. Even if you don't want to pledge anything the campaign video was made using the game engine and shows off lots of fun things. It's also been described by multiple people as "the best Kickstarter video ever", but I'm taking that with a pinch of salt

Hello! I figured you fine folk might enjoy seeing the FIST OF AWESOME gesture system put through its paces by my warrior-like thumbs, so here you go:


The footage is from the "Woodland Arena", a highscore-based mode where you attempt to survive a never ending onslaught of homicidal deer and bears.

The Kickstarter campaign is also going pretty well, we're at 71% of the goal with 15 days still left to go. I'm led to believe that's rather good for a tiny indie dev

Man, why are all the good threads 3 pages in? Anyway, this looks awesome! I love pixel art, and did I hear endless mode? Note sure if this has been addressed yet in this thread, but will this have iCade support?

There are few things more manly than a lumberjack ... except perhaps a lumberjack punching a grizly bear! I love the style and the humor. Running on the heels of Hard Lines, I am really looking forward to this one.
