Fist of Awesome, a time-travelling-lumberjack-em-up, needs your support on KickStarter. Nicoll Hunt, studio head of I Fight Bears, has opened up this new project. Nicoll Hunt wants to bring this beat-em-up to iOS and Android, with the possibility of other platforms at a later date. The campaign launched on Monday 12th November, and the team are hoping the campaign reaches its goal of £5000 in 30 days. If this happens, I Fight Bears will use the funds to purchase much-needed development equipment and push more resources towards completing and polishing the game.
The story begins with the hero, Tim Burr, who is a forest dwelling tree feller who gets caught up in a needlessly complex interstellar plot to enslave Earth by populating history with homicidal wild animals The game takes place over a number of time periods, features original 2D art and animation throughout, and is to my knowledge, the only game that lets you punch a full grown grizzly bear in the face.
