Have a question?
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!
Hi there I backed this project and was wondering when the demo or beta version is available?
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 the hell is this? are they ripping you off? sure looks like it! a pixellated bear getting punched by a lumberjack.
I just wanted to randomly add that you and this project are awesome. Very happy with the progress and look forward to the next step for this wonderful project.
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.
I can't put my finger on it but something makes me want to punch this guy :)
Looks like we're getting the Grizzly edition too...Good times, YASSSSSS
I can't believe how close to 12K we were. That's just painful. XD Any chance of making the Grizzly Edition anyway...? XD
Kickassist makes it 12k... right? O.o
Well done mate !!! all the best the game will be Awesome (Fist of) ;)
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
Awesome, can't wait to play the game :)
Well done Nicky! Great news on the Ouya too!
Ooh, so close. Nicoll, do you plan to add a Paypal option to raise the missing £200 for the grizzly edition?
Only a few more hours to go. Less than £500 to get fisting some bears in the chops. BOOM
I'm all ready to get fisted... hang on, that's not right.
We are sooooooo close to the Grizzly edition!!!!!! (Biting nails)
Ok, if half of the smartphone backers upgrade to the PC/Mac version we'll get the Grizzly edition!
this game is beard
Also loved Hard Lines, and bumped to £10 too...based on that alone (looking forward to wiping a bear tho).
Loved Hard Lines so very happy to be a backer.
I'm looking forward to playing it on my tablet but I feel obligated to say *cough*Linux?*cough*...
Just bumped to £10, Hope you hit 12k.
So it looks like you scored the kickassist prize!
Good job Nicoll!
Mine will be the Mac version please - hurrah!!!
Aren't hairy gay men known as "Bears". Does not the "Lumberjack Song" veer into transvestitism and transgender issues? What is the subtext here????
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 !
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)
You have my backing dear sir. Now kindly allow me to punch bear's in the brief period I call lunch!
Four grand, yeah baby! I can bearly wait.
I just came here for the cookies!... and the poster!
Just became a backer. BOOM
Nice. Not just "cool moustache" nice but "totally awesome beard" nice.
All the best with the project!
RAD!!!!!! Lumberjacks, bears, raptors, and beards. My oh my, this SCREAMS awesomesauce! So happy to help!
got android tablet and (most important) a beard. this is SO backed.
You had me at beard.
I have always wanted to be able to punch bears on my Android tablet. You have answered my prayers.
A video of the game being played is a great idea btw! I'll get one up soon :)
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.
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.
That's a good point. I shaved mine off for my Haloween costume, but will make sure to grow it back by March.
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?
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?
I support your general awesomeness :D
Pledging my support for beards.
