Fist of Awesome turns to Kickstarter

By , on November 12, 2012

Nicoll Hunt, developer of the rather special Hard Lines, has turned to Kickstarter for a final push to get his next game, Fist of Awesome, finished off.

The game sees you taking the role of Tim Burr, a Lumberjack who finds his house burned down and his family vanished. Cue time travel, side-scrolling, and an awful lot of bear punching. There's also a chiptune soundtrack provided by Echolevel.

With a classic beat 'em up feel, a unique look, and plenty of character, Fist of Awesome certainly has the goods to stand out from the crowd in the App Store. And Hunt has a pedigree too, having worked for a number of AAA developers before finding success on his own with Hard Lines.

You can check out the Kickstarter by clicking here, and we've embedded a teaser trailer for you below, so you can get an idea what the game is all about.
