Within - The first true competitive fighting game for iPad

Hi guys, I'm Gian Paolo and I'm the Creative Director & Co-founder at DESTINYbit, which is a small independent game development company based in Italy.

Back in July we announced Within at VxG 2013. Within is the first true competitive fighting game for tablet devices. It aims to bring for the first time on a mobile platform, the true arcade fighting game experience.

We are working closely with fighting game pros and veterans to really make it competitive, balanced and deep. We're hoping to turn this game into a tournament fighter.

Here's the announcement trailer:

We came up with a very innovative control system which is inspired by arcade joysticks that allows precise and quick inputs essential to the fighting game genre.

Here's how they work:

We're still far from release but since we're doing something very innovative, we felt like announcing the game as soon as possible.

We'll keep development as much open as possible in order to gather feedback as we go on everything we're doing. We have a closed beta program which launches this month and we're going to post lots of updates, videos and even stream development.

Aside from our official website, facebook and twitter, this topic will be the only other source for informations about the game (some even exclusive to you guys).

We look forward to hear what you think about the game.
