With easy to learn combos, stylized strategic gameplay, and a little luck of the cards you will send your friends running to the change machine.

  • Are you looking to bring a new and exciting game to a friend’s game night?

  • In a fighting game, do you remember the first time you were able to perform an uppercut or fireball?

  • Do you cherish the moment when you make the perfect play that seals your opponent's demise?

Not to be cheesy but this is the game for you!

You'll love bashing these buttons!

 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This adventure provides a simple and inexpensive way to rekindle those feelings of excitement and panic brought on from supernatural hand-to-hand gaming combat. Similar to the combo lists posted on the sides of those retro arcade cabinets, each of the 6 characters has a personalized list of attacks to help you pummel your opponent into the ground… using cards!

Button Bashers pays homage to the classic arcade fighting games by including:

  • Different sets of rules to address varying levels of difficulty and game modes

  • Cards symbolizing common directional movements and arcade buttons

  • Characters styled from a caricature of the fighters you've played over the years

  • An aesthetic all arcade gamers are familiar with.

Versus Mode

  • 2 player mode

  • Duel using characters and combos to create chaos.

 AT $3,500 WE REVEAL OUR $5,000 STRETCH GOAL

 If we reach $3,500 in total pledges (only $500 more than our goal), we will send a FREE Print ‘N Play copy of Button Bashers to all backers who have selected a reward tier with the game included. This means you will be able to have the game before others can receive it, customize the game as you’d like, and maybe even print off an XL or extra small version of Button Bashers for kicks.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we reach $4,000 in total pledges (only $500 more than our last goal), we will include 4 FREE Arcade Bonus Round cards in reward tiers including a physical copy of the game.

These cards are Utility cards created to help bring each player deeper into the arcade experience. Arcade junkies may have seen some of these once or twice.

Each have unique abilities:

"Cup-o-Quarters" = regaining life

"Bashing Buttons" = drawing cards

"Soda Spill" = disabling buttons

"Power Outage" = discarding opponents cards.

To ensure customer experience that reflects our own passion for gaming. We are driven to provide the gaming community with enjoyable and affordable products that embrace a nostalgic and innovative adventure.

We have 5 more games quickly approaching alpha stage. Before investing our efforts in these games we would like to have Button Bashers created and in stores.

Our talented artist: Alyssa Ring

Beta testers: John Besner, Matt Callahan, Travis Collins, Mark Fiore, Brian Griffith, Kyle Kassmann, Pat Ognissanti, Katherine Osterhoudt, R.J. Patton, Jon Pelland,  Kyle Somerville, Mike Visca, Sarah Wright

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter as Multi-Bit Games but all 5 of us have put an extensive amount of work to make sure every backer will enjoy our game. We have tested the quality and speed of our printer over the last few months and see no reason why we would not be able to deliver an enjoyable game in a timely manner.

We will update continuously throughout the process to ensure each backer is satisfied with our promises and speed of delivery
