Hi all! We're now halfway through the kickstarter and almost 50% funded! Fantastic! Keep those motors running a little longer!

As I said at the start of the campaign, I didn't want to bore you by just having a 'Pop-The-3-Balloons" battle mode. So I've been working on some custom battle arenas with a few of the crossover Indies from the Indie Karts list, with arenas themed like the games the Indie characters are from, not just visually but also bringing their rules over too.

The first example of this initiative is in the Toto Temple Deluxe arena. You have to dash to the centre to be the first to grab the goat, then try to avoid the other player's efforts to steal the goat from you. Keeping the goat until you have 4000 points to win the round!

Get The Goat!
Get The Goat!

Another Indie Karts crossover battle mode I'm revealing today, is the Fist Of Awesome themed Fist Fight Arena! One punch from these giant spring loaded gloves will send your opponent hurtling across the arena, putting them in a spin. These are no kid gloves!

FIST!!
FIST!!

See the above Fist Fight screen in 1080p here

More Indie themed arenas like these will be included in the final game, and possibly another announced before the end of the kickstarter campaign! Let me know in the comments which crossover game you'd like to see a Battle Mode for.

Thanks for being here, I appreciate every one of you. Even you!
Cheers,
Paul

      I can't believe how much this game has improved since the original KS! This game is looking INCREDIBLE! I, no, WE need this game to succeed!

      Congrats on reaching 50%!

      These look really fun, will battle modes feature CPU players?
      (Also these tweets about shovel knight got me hyped through the freaking roof, I really hope something will come out of that :D)

      @Philhouse- Great idea! I'd also like to see this. It would add more replayability to mix and match.

      Taking the mashups to the next level! I hadn't thought about that, hmm. Choosing a different arena, while keeping a certain rule set, could be a possibility!

      Is there likely to be any ability to use different rules in different arenas? Use Fist Fight rules in the Toto Temple Deluxe arena?

      Or even combining rules could be cool. Get the goat, but everyone has fists!

      Those are probably outside scope and it may not always be reasonable to combine rules. But arena/rule swapping maybe?
