Default Punch Quest - From Rocketcat Games and Madgarden

So we've been working on Punch Quest. It's an arcade fighter, kind of like Final Fight or Double Dragon, but controlled by just tapping with your left and right thumb. You uppercut, jab, and midair-slam monsters in a varied, randomly generated dungeon with branching paths. Ride a dinosaur that shoots lasers out of its mouth, customize your character with new abilities, hats, and supermoves, get massive combos, this game has it all.

Preview Trailer:

Below is a playlist of earlier footage:

The game will be free-ish, using a Temple Run style coins model. You can block by holding both thumbs down at once, which also makes you stop running. There are two slots for abilities and one to pick your supermove, letting you change your character for different play styles. Punch Quest has a focus on variety, with many rare events to find. We're also totally stealing Jetpack Joyride's mission system, though ours will be goofier.

This looks awesome. I love how it seems like you're going to be incorporating style from lots of different games and merging them into one! I've gotten bored of Jetpack Joyride, so maybe this can be my next addiction.

Yep, been excited about this one since I saw Madgarden mention it a while back. Now that I've seen the footage, I'm even more excited.
