TheIndieJar: FIST OF AWESOME Trailer
Without further ado, the new game from Nicoll Hunt of Hard Lines fame, is… FIST OF AWESOME!
FIST OF AWESOME (always displayed IN CAPS) is an iOS title which updates the mechanics of scrolling beat em ups such as Double Dragon, Streets of Rage and Final Fight for a modern audience, along with a healthy dose of humour, retro sensibilities and grandiose ambition.
This is the game that I’ve been wanting to make for about 17 years but only now are audiences cultured enough to fully appreciate the nuanced themes and socio-political overtones.
I used to be rubbish at making games and it would have been terrible. Now though, I’m somewhere between “above average” and “moderately okay” at making games, so FIST OF AWESOME can finally come kicking and screaming to life! Hurrah!
