      Hi everyone!

      I put a little 2 level teaser demo version up on the Ouya store to coincide with the Ouya launch. It was mainly at the request of the Ouya guys so they had something to publicise about the game.

      I'm afraid I've no plans to release any other demos before the final game is released, which will hopefully be around the end of July / start of August.

      Thanks for your patience, I promise I'm working incredibly hard to build the game you all deserve and hopefully you'll think it was worth the wait!

      Stay AWESOME!

      Hi there I backed this project and was wondering when the demo or beta version is available?

    3. Ben Lorenz on May 7, 2013

      Just got the survey and I have a question - what about OUYA? Should I have selected Android if I wanted an OUYA copy - as the idea of playing with a controller sounds far better to playing with touch controls. Really excited for when you release the game!

      What about using download codes instead of gift cards? reddit r/AppHookup/ is always posting download app codes...

      I am Canadian and I approve this project.

    8. Stuart Hunt on January 9, 2013

      I can't put my finger on it but something makes me want to punch this guy :)…

      I can't believe how close to 12K we were. That's just painful. XD Any chance of making the Grizzly Edition anyway...? XD

    11. Veav on December 12, 2012

      Kickassist makes it 12k... right? O.o

    12. JS Morgan on December 12, 2012

      Well done mate !!! all the best the game will be Awesome (Fist of) ;)

    13. Nicoll Hunt Creator on December 12, 2012

      THANKS EVERYONE! I'll post a proper update tonight but just wanted to say I'm totally blown away by the support I've received. You're all lovely and incredibly generous people. THANK YOU! :D

    14. Ikaraam Ullah on December 12, 2012

      Awesome, can't wait to play the game :)

    15. Stuart Hunt on December 12, 2012

      Well done Nicky! Great news on the Ouya too!

    16. Iain Smith on December 12, 2012

      Ooh, so close. Nicoll, do you plan to add a Paypal option to raise the missing £200 for the grizzly edition?

    17. Steven Hewitson
      on December 11, 2012

      Only a few more hours to go. Less than £500 to get fisting some bears in the chops. BOOM

    18. Terry Bonds on December 11, 2012

      I'm all ready to get fisted... hang on, that's not right.

    19. Bryan Kuo on December 11, 2012

      We are sooooooo close to the Grizzly edition!!!!!! (Biting nails)

    20. JB Designs on December 11, 2012

      Ok, if half of the smartphone backers upgrade to the PC/Mac version we'll get the Grizzly edition!

    21. Neill Ericson on December 8, 2012

      Also loved Hard Lines, and bumped to £10 too...based on that alone (looking forward to wiping a bear tho).

    22. Kane Harrison on December 7, 2012

      Loved Hard Lines so very happy to be a backer.

    23. Ben Halbert on December 7, 2012

      I'm looking forward to playing it on my tablet but I feel obligated to say *cough*Linux?*cough*...

    24. JB Designs on December 6, 2012

      Just bumped to £10, Hope you hit 12k.

    25. Veav on December 6, 2012

      So it looks like you scored the kickassist prize!

      Aren't hairy gay men known as "Bears". Does not the "Lumberjack Song" veer into transvestitism and transgender issues? What is the subtext here????

    28. benj binks on November 29, 2012

      I'm not into gaming and I still have my Nokia 3310 and I know you've already hit your target, but this is the most awesome Kickstarter video ever and worthy of a pledge! Thanks Nicoll!

      Congrats m8 !

    30. Alejo AC on November 29, 2012

      November 29th 20:38 (local time). This is when all this bear punching thing became a reality... (you'll need to know when time travelling)

    31. Jason Brown on November 29, 2012

      You have my backing dear sir. Now kindly allow me to punch bear's in the brief period I call lunch!

    32. Rudi van der Heide on November 27, 2012

      Four grand, yeah baby! I can bearly wait.

    33. Rui Figueira on November 27, 2012

      I just came here for the cookies!... and the poster!

      Just became a backer. BOOM

    35. Scott Stevenson on November 22, 2012

      Nice. Not just "cool moustache" nice but "totally awesome beard" nice.

      All the best with the project!

    36. Lisa Bella on November 21, 2012

      RAD!!!!!! Lumberjacks, bears, raptors, and beards. My oh my, this SCREAMS awesomesauce! So happy to help!

    37. Andreas Teufel on November 21, 2012

      got android tablet and (most important) a beard. this is SO backed.

    38. Abigail Palmer on November 20, 2012

      I have always wanted to be able to punch bears on my Android tablet. You have answered my prayers.

    39. Nicoll Hunt Creator on November 18, 2012

      A video of the game being played is a great idea btw! I'll get one up soon :)

    40. Nicoll Hunt Creator on November 18, 2012

      I can happily confirm that FIST OF AWESOME is 100% compatible with beard-less players.

      The experience is improved if you have a beard though, colours appear richer and the jokes seem funnier. Some beta testers have taken to wearing false beards or "cat beards" (google it!) to intensify their experience.

    41. Alejo AC on November 17, 2012

      Bears face fur can be considered to be a beard?... a bear beard?

      The horizontal movement by dragging seems interesting, it would be nice to watch a video of you playing to see how it works.

    42. JB Designs on November 17, 2012

      That's a good point. I shaved mine off for my Haloween costume, but will make sure to grow it back by March.

    43. Gianfranco Lanzio on November 17, 2012

      I just read that you make "Games For People With Beards". I currently do not own a beard, will I be able to play and complete the game despite this (huge) shortcoming?

    44. Nick M on November 15, 2012

      Awesome concept and execution :D.

      P.S. I hear those Tim Schafer Double Fine Adventure backers have a thing for lumberjacks, possible epic win opportunity?

    45. Marc Vaughan
      on November 14, 2012

      I support your general awesomeness :D

    46. Kristian Mattila on November 14, 2012

      Pledging my support for beards.
