Project: Fierce is the second official release from Windy Gaming. We formed in 2011 as an import shop. Last year we released our well received ATP-300 supergun. We have been making and designing our own hardware ever since. 

Project: Fierce is a tournament legal professional grade fight stick. It is compatible with PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox 1, WiiU, PC, Neo Geo AES and CD, and our own ATP-300 supergun. We use all sanwa parts for the controls, a brook universal fighting board (which is tournament legal), a Neutrik usb connector, and we put it all together in our own custom made enclosure. It also outputs via DB15 for use with our supergun and the Neo Geo AES. The enclosure is made of 16 gauge steel which is fabricated and powder coated locally right here in Chicago. All assembly will be done locally as well. We wanted to create a product that is not outsourced and done as locally as possible. The tournament lockout switch disengages the select, start, and home buttons. Also inside is a custom pcb that drives the DB15 connector, but has no effect on the usb side. 

 We made sure the stick is big enough to put an adult hand on it without it sliding off. Our powder coat formula was chosen for optimal play comfort. It is 400mm wide and comfortable in the lap or on a tabletop. Our top array of buttons adds functional use of the other lesser used buttons. Often times you will find the alternate buttons placed on the back or sides leaving an awkward reach if those buttons need to be used. We are using quick connects on all of the hardware so changing buttons and sticks will be an easy solder-free experience. The non-slip feet are removable with a simple phillips screwdriver if they get in the way of lap play. 

Not seen on this stick in its current version: A 3 way selector switch will be added. This allows you to choose between crosspad, left stick, or right stick inputs. Also we will be deleting the 2 leftmost buttons on the top array to simplify the PS4 touchpad controls. We will also be adding a stick on foam pad for the comfort of lap players. This pad will be applied by the user only if they want to use it. 

Hardware color options will be: Windy Livery (white/blue as seen in the video), Sega Astro livery (neon green/ hot pink), Murdered Out (Smoke buttons and balltop), and Neo Geo Livery (red, yellow, blue, green with a yellow top array and red balltop). You will be able to choose your color combo via a survey at the end of the campaign. The enclosures will be matte black as seen in the video.

We are targeting late summer/ early fall 2017 for delivery. 

This may not be the last stick you will every want, but we want it to be the last stick you will ever need! 

Risks and challenges

As far as risks and challenges go: We have double and triple checked all of the production expenses. We have backup suppliers for everything we use in case of any production issues.

We will not be doing any stretch goals as we do not wish to add more to the product than we can promise. This stick is ready for production at this point and we do not want to cloud our vision. We just want to provide you all with the highest quality controls that we can provide.
