Gang Beasts is a silly multiplayer co-op fighting game with ragdoll physics and multi-stage boss fights.
Information about the progress made on the public pre-alpha build of Gang Beasts and a demonstration video showing the potential hazards of fighting on window-cleaning gondolas

We provisionally expect to have a public pre-alpha build of Gang Beasts completed in the next month with some sample content for playtesting; we still have a glut of changes to make before we want to make it public, specifically:
these modifications are the technical implementations that we wanted to include before making a public pre-alpha to minimise annoyances and improve accessibility etc; implementing these modifications at this stage has slowed the addition of new content to the game, but we did make time to make a scene with partially destructible window-cleaning gondolas which we plan to include in a pre-alpha build (please see the video for a demonstration of the potential hazards of fighting on permanently suspended window-cleaning scaffolds).
We are currently planning to support Windows 7, Windows 8, and Mac OS X 10.8+ in the first pre-alpha builds (the custom input manager we are using doesn't support Linux currently, we are planning to set up a Linux box to test support for Linux compatible game controllers in a later build).
