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.

Will you guys be releasing a demo of v1.3? It looks good from the trailer. I played the demo of v1.2 but I wasn't too impressed with the collision detection.

So... it's basically a fighting/beat 'em up game where almost every animation is physics based?

Hi Haraldx, yes you got the idea. With the latest release we have ( 1.3 ) this should be quite visible. And even more improvements are coming after summer!

Oh well, I've bought it anyways =D.
I'm using the Xbox 360 emulator on the program and seems to work fine. But can some one tell me how to pick up objects?

hi dirt,

refer to www.romantournament.com for all the combos and controller commands, in-game description coming soon.

Regarding your ps2 controller, you could try to invert axis in options->controls. We managed to make a ps2 + adapter work this way.

Let me know if it works.

Thanks for the quick reply. Will you be adding in counter attacks? and maybe some inertia based attacks (such as running and jumping into someone to deal more damage) Otherwise I'm having fun so far. Need to revise for Physics tomorrow though =(

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…
