The summer is racing by, and we’re nearing completion of our latest game, Reagan Gorbachev. For those out of the loop, Reagan Gorbachev is a cooperative stealth game set in an alternate ’80s timeline (think 2P Hotline Miami). Players take control of the iconic leaders as they puzzle (and sometimes shoot or stab) their way through 32 stealth levels. We just wrapped up the final beta version so Reagan Gorbachev will be out shortly as an OUYA exclusive title. So fire up those OUYA consoles, put on some Hall and Oates (you know, because it’s the ’80s), and start the swatch watch countdown for Reagan Gorbachev.

E3 is upon us. We’re still up in the Bay doing all the manly things we do (making games, slinging around axes, lifting heavy weights), but our latest game, Reagan Gorbachev, WILL be at E3 down in smoggy LA (Sorry, LA. I couldn’t resist). Tonight Reagan Gorbachev will be showing at the MIX, a private, press-meets-indies showcase. Hopefully we’ll have more to report (and even some pics if we’re lucky). That’s all for now.

Mac and Linux support for Fist Puncher is now live. Sorry it took so long, but we’re happy to announce that with much blood and sweat and with many tears we completed the port to Mac and Linux. Actually, we just found the amazing flibitijibibo, and he made the port happen while we twiddled our thumbs and drank root beer. We also updated the standard release and added two more characters (that makes 20 in all including the Robot Unicorn Attack add-on character). Finally all of you classy Mac users and handsome Linux people can punch a bagillion dudes in the face. Wander over to Steam and check it out.

Remember Fist Puncher? That game about vigilantes, throwing bees, nude beaches, ninja golf, and ostrich chases? In case you forgot, here’s a trailer:
But let’s get to the point. Right now Fist Puncher is on sale on the OUYA console. It’s 30% off. That means it’s not even 7 bucks. Less money than you probably spend getting a soda and a sandwich at Subway. So if you haven’t fired up your OUYA in a while, plug ‘er in, push the power button, and get yourself some Fist Puncher. What else are you going to do with your time? Read a book?

We had some time at GDC to yap it up on the expo floor with the friendly people from Design3. We talked about our upcoming game Reagan Gorbachev, Fist Puncher, working with OUYA, making games in Unity, and a bunch of other fun stuff. Click below for the interview.

Before we forget, here are a couple of podcasts that we squeezed in the past few weeks. First up is a Press Pause Radio podcast. It’s a sort of GDC cool down chat that we recorded on the last day of the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. We’ve been friends with the gang from Press Pause for a couple of years so it was nice to finally grab some time and rap about games with their crew.
The second one is from Go For Rainbow – Jake sat down and talked about OUYA, Fist Puncher, and our upcoming game, Reagan Gorbachev. Enjoy!

Things have been crazy since GDC – we’ve been working hard to meet milestones for Reagan Gorbachev and wrapping up Mac and Linux ports for Fist Puncher. All of this is a weak excuse to say so we haven’t had much time to blog about the show. Anyway, the show was, as expected, a blast. We spent 3 days exhibiting Reagan Gorbachev with the folks at OUYA, and we were right in the company of a bunch of slick titles (Duck Game, Amazing Frog, Broken Age). Here’s a brief write-up from GamesBeat about the upcoming exclusive OUYA titles.
As usual, we got gobs of great feedback and hundreds of people played the first prototype of Reagan Gorbachev. At present the game is coming together as an amalgamation of quick burst action and top down stealth – a sort of “Super Meatline Miami”. We’re currently in the process of starting a complete art overhaul so in the next couple of months we’ll start leaking screenshots. In the meantime, we’ll be in the trenches making games!

Good news for Mac and Linux users – we’re wrapping up ports of Fist Puncher for both platforms, and they will be released in the upcoming weeks on Steam. Fist Puncher is published on Steam by indie-superfriends Adult Swim, and the port was done with the help of Ethan Lee (the brains behind the Mac and Linux port of amazing games like Fez and Super Hexagon). So Mac and Linux users, keep your eyes glued to the Fist Puncher Steam page, and we’ll have more news soon!
