Today's awesome-looking Kickstarter project that you need to be aware of is FIST OF AWESOME, a "retro-style beat-em-up of truly epic proportions." We're talking epic level punching bears in the face here.
According to the developer, Nicoll Hunt, here's what you can expect from FIST OF AWESOME:
FIST OF AWESOME is a time-travelling-lumberjack-em-up, a sorely underrepresented genre by anyone's metric. It's a modern homage to classics like Streets of Rage and Final Fight, but with more time travel and lumberjacks.
The hero, Tim Burr, is a forest dwelling tree feller who gets caught up in a needlessly complex interstellar plot to enslave Earth by populating history with homicidal wild animals The game takes place over a number of time periods, features original 2D art and animation throughout, and is to my knowledge, the only game that lets you punch a full grown grizzly bear in the face.
Sold. The project only needs a little more with 12 days to go. You know what to do.
Hunt says that his game could be the new beat-em-up game that iOS and Android needs. I'll let him continue to explain why his game is awesome:
Oh, and here's some alpha gameplay:
