Should prob link steam version in this page

I beat all the championships yesterday and have been working on getting all the stickers. This game was really fun and tough. For some of the enemies they can stun lock you by repeating certain moves and touch of death you, it would be nice if this could be avoided somehow. Also is there any plan for online multiplayer support?

guys help when i open the game it say the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).Click OK to close the application. pls help i really want to play this game

I had the same problem but I have the solution copy and paste this on YouTube how to fix 0xc00007b missing error on windows 7/8/8.1/10

Follow the video and that's it

Note: I had to make an acount to answer your question 

no seggs :(


No bitches?


amazing game,

could we see customization on the characters

He’s adding that to the final version, which is coming out tomorrow infact.

After discovering the devlogs on YouTube, i downloaded the demo today. 

The learning is incredibly steep, and a tutorial would be very welcome, but once you get the hang of it, the blocking is effective, the dodges and dashes add a real flow to the movement, and the punches are so satisfying. You can't take your eyes off the screen for a moment for rest and a 2 minutes match feels like a test of stamina. And that's not a criticism. Ponty has captured some really key points of exciting and immersive gameplay in his first game. His approach has been well thought out and considerate to all levels of player, but he has not changed from his vision. I'm really impressed.

mac version when ponty please

You can also play with mouse and keyboard.

heyyyyyy i think i cant play this on mac bruh

plssss linux & html versions plsss

first masterpiece on itch.io

Let me explain :

Itch.io is an open site for everyone , totally everyone cam publish their own game and there is almost 55% of the games are pretty mid and 40% that are bad or malware and 4% that are good and 1% of games that is a masterpiece

Also check my big shit :


thanks bro i found that unreal  engine do also lightweight projects

make it for keyboard to'


good game:D

too bad there is no way I am getting the actual one :/

please mac version


This was such a fun and frustrating experience. This game makes you have to get good from the get go. Can't wait to have more to play with in this game. Having been a kickboxer myself this game makes you move and combo unlike any other fighting game I've played so far. Letting you bob and weave like you're really in there moving. Also the video I made on it got me over 1K views on YT when i normally get like 10 so GOOD STUFF all around! I anxiously await the full release and possibly multiplayer? Im ready to get destroyed online! 

Game was EXTREMELY fun and tough. I know its on your laundry list of stuff getting added to the game but PLEASE ADD MUSIC! In videos it got really awkward so I had to add some myself but other than that the game was fantastic. Cannot wait for updates / the full release!

html download pls

pleas release for mac

some recommendation:

make a tutorial for the different punches(aka hook, overhand, uppercut)

make bot smarter >:9

you can watch some of his dev logs on his youtube to learn them

nice punch



Keyboard and mouse controls are really hard, and I can't deal any damage for some reason. It's so hard to get use to, pls make some sort of tutorial for keyboard and mouse controls.

Are you a troll? Read the page lol.

Edit: Ok so this should have like, some slight info on how keyboard and mouse work.

I've already watched that video but thanks for the help anyway. What I'm trying to find is an actual tutorial like how to combine leaning and punching to create a strong attack.


tilt right plus left hook equal strong hit 


tilt back then tilt forward plus jab equal overhand


right hand b

Man... It's a great game! However,  controversial to popular belief, I don't think local multiplayer should be added to the demo. It should be in the full game. If not, people can just run off with the demo.

Aside from that, beautiful game. Great Developer

can you please add local multiplayer to the demo????


DS4Windows link needs to be updated. Download official working DS4 here

DS4Windows works best with PS4 and PS5 controller

sorta bs

i found out that the game is uncooked, and i cant run it i need the creator to fix this issue. please fix it

(1 edit)

its broken

i tried opening the game and it said there was an error or idk can someone help me?

its says i need a cooked version. someone knows how the hell i can fix that?


Super game bro! I really like how the controls feel and how well the game runs. I can't wait for the game to launch


Okay, so right off the rip, I had an extremely difficult time trying to beat Toby, which is supposed to be beginner mode. I don't know if it's because I'm not used to the controls yet, or what, but I feel as though the damages of the punches should be increased or Toby's health should be decreased for the sake of it being beginner. Another thing is I feel like Toby's health is regenerating. This can be frustrating when you're going to block or get away while you're stunned because it gives the enemy's health time to regenerate. You should probably take that feature out. All in all, good game. Also, use a save game blueprint to save the settings so that way players don't have to keep adjusting the settings every time they start a new game or restart a new game. It gets annoying after a while when you have to pause just before you start the game to adjust settings or use legacy controls. 

coming from youtube, way better than I expected. online multiplayer option would make this game a blast


kinda sucks idk if its just me

been watching since the start 2 whole years ago, love to see this game finally playable even if its still not done!!!

The game is kinda hard. I get damaged when I defend myself.
