Fist of Awesome punches bears on PC and Mac


The game best described as a "bear fighter," Fist of Awesome, is now available on PC and Mac. The game is currently discounted on the Humble Store to $3.99 (originally $7.99). Fist of Awesome is a beat-em-up in which players assume the role of a time-traveling lumberjack that must "punch bears to save humanity."

Developer I Fight Bears is seeking community approval via Greenlight to bring the game to Steam. It launched on Ouya, iOS and Android in October following a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised £11,808 ($19,919) in December 2012. The UK-based developer was founded by Nicoll Hunt, a former Realtime Worlds (Crackdown) developer that also worked on Hard Lines for iOS.

Also, and it pains me to mention this, even the greatest time-travelling-lumberjack-em-up of all time must still do the Steam Greenlight dance. The campaign launches today and the Internet must now determine if FIST OF AWESOME is worthy of inclusion on Steam.
