There is no doubt that, like many other developers, we also had trouble trying to get our games onto Steam.
Being out from the popular DD platform forced us to stop updating the game.
The launch of Steam Greenlight (TM) gives now to devs like us a new chance of getting games on Steam.

Nice graphics, and gamerplay seems to be fun, but hit detection is kinda messed up, it reacts too slow and the distance between feet/fist and enemy is too long, looks unrealistic. Anyway, I#d play this evenb with those problems, you may fix them later ;P

Hi Hannibal,

thanks for your feedback! For you and for all the others that helped us to address hit delay problems,
check latest videos ( especially "2 rounds in Santangelo" and "active ragdoll tests" ) , we totally re-write hit detection system and get hit logic!

Tell us what you think!

Graphics are OK. Obviously Doesn't pretend to be Crysis-like but looks like a mid-2000 game. ( first games of next-gen if you get the idea ). The controlls are a little bit hard, but the artificial inteligence is very smart. But the great part of the game is physics. Ragdoll physics of this game is incredible. It's even better than big name studios titles that usually use it only for ko's. Here ragdolls are always present in the fight and thanks to them you can feel every hit as little bit different…

While I admire the developers attempt to create a ragdoll beat-em-up, I have to say, that this is simply the worst indie title I have ever played. The controls are incredbily clunky and sluggish. Combat is difficult and there are almost no combos at all. The combos that do exsist are simply punch, punch, or kick, kick, kick. "Special" moves are difficult to pull off, and certain characters are simply better to play than others due to their knock up and knock down capabilities. Characters have spines…
