There are no console versions of Gang Beasts currently as the game is in development, it is not currently possible to release console until the full game is completed and tested.

Please can you be more specific, it is difficult to support you without more information.

For reference to play the game you have to fully extract (unzip) the .zip the downloaded file using an archive utility (see En.wikipedia.org for more information).

See Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 7 and Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 8.

Extracting the .zip should give you a file named "Gang Beasts.exe" and a folder named "Gang Beasts_Data", if the file and folder are in the same location i.e. inside a specific folder or on the Windows Desktop. you can run the game by double-clicking the "Gang Beasts.exe" file.

To map keyboard inputs press the "Tab" key in game or click the oscillating yellow "Press Tab to Remap Controls" text on the game menu.

If you are using the 0.0.3 Windows build and find that custom keyboard inputs are not accepted, quit the game, right-click the "Gang Beasts.exe" file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to write to the input preferences).

We haven't set minimum specifications as the game is in development and the requirements are expected to change.

Sorry for the slow reply, we don't get notification about comments from IndieDB which makes comments on the main pages much more likely to be seen than comment on user pages.

If you using a browser service or extension that blocks pop-up windows you could try disabling the service for the indiedb.com domain. If this doesn't solve the issue for you I suggest contacting an IndieDB moderator or staff member as they administrate and maintain the IndieDB site, they can be contacted through the contact form at Indiedb.com if you only want a copy of the last Gang Beasts build send me a direct message on IndieDB and I can send you an alternative link to download the build.

The few crashes that have been reported to us have been caused by corrupt fonts on the users system, are you still having the issue and does the game give you an error message?

I think the issue you have is that the Notepad application is registered as the default application for opening / uncompressing .zip files, you can either download an archive utility (see En.wikipedia.org) or use the Windows File Explorer.

See Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 7.

See Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 8.

The "Street" stage was the first prototype of the story mode. There will be 4 -6 districts in the full game each with their own reductive narrative similar to classic arcade scrolling fighting games e.g. Double Dragon, Final Fight, Streets of Rage etc.

1v1, 1v2, 1v3, 2v2 matches are planned, but we don't currently plan to disable hitting friends in the co-op stages, this could change if sufficient people find it difficult to avoid punching their friends.

We don't expect to change the throwing mechanic other that a minor increase in the lifting forces as we have seen and played against many players that have become skilled with the current throwing mechanic.

Gang Beasts has supported mouse, keyboard, and game controllers since the 0.0.1 build (released on IndieDB on 17 February), there is information about this in the second paragraph of the main page. To map keyboard inputs press the "Tab" key in game or click the oscillating yellow "Press Tab to Remap Controls" text on the game menu.

If you are using the 0.0.3 Windows build and find that custom keyboard inputs are not accepted, quit the game, right-click the "Gang Beasts.exe" file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to write to the input preferences).

Thank you for your comments.

1. We don't expect the art style to change significantly in the full game

2. Climbing is planned (see Twitter.com for an example)

3. We are working on adding kicking, choking, elbowing, and could also add head-butting

I think you could have downloaded the Mac version in error, if you want to play Gang Beasts on a Window PC you need to download the Windows build from Indiedb.com

To play the game you have to fully extract (unzip) the .zip file using an archive utility (see En.wikipedia.org) or the Windows File Explorer (see Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 7 and Windows.microsoft.com for instructions how to unzip files on Windows 8).

On Windows the screen resolution dialogue can be forced to show by holding down the "Shift" key when launching the game, hold down the "ALT / OPTION" key on Mac OS X.

There isn't support for configuring your own character body shapes and sizes (as we need to set and test the various sizes to balance their attributes and minimise issues with the physics simulation) but there will be numerous different body shapes and sizes to play as (including sub-bosses, bosses, and possibly end bosses). The yellow character is associated with player 4 in the pre-alpha builds, it is not currently possible to select specific or custom character colours but this is planned for a later build.

There are no default keyboard controls and limited support for default controller profiles in the pre-alpha builds, keyboard inputs, and controller face and shoulder button inputs need to be mapped manually (from the custom input window that is opened when the "Tab" key is pressed in game) for most configurations.

If you are using the 0.0.3 Windows build and find that custom keyboard inputs are not accepted, quit the game, right-click the "Gang Beasts.exe" file and select the "Run as Administrator" command (to give the game permission to write to the input preferences), if this doesn't work on your system an alternative solution is to map the controls you want in the 0.0.2 build (0.0.3 will then use the same control mappings).

We suggest playing Gang Beasts with game controllers as most keyboards have a hardware limitation that limits the number of keys that can be pressed concurrently (the issue is called "Key Ghosting or Keyboard Ghosting", see the Microsoft support article at Microsoft.com for reference).
