For anyone interested in retro brawlers, we're doing a Kickstarter to try to get the final funding for our game Fist Puncher. We're hoping we can get some fans of old school beat 'em ups to give us a hand. Pass the link on if you know anyone who might be interested. Thanks!
That's a brilliant quote! River City Ransom is one of our big influences along with Double Dragon, Streets of Rage, Renegade, etc. It has some modern influence too. I think people will definitely see some Castle Crashers in there.
Speaking of River City Ransom, I only learned recently that there were sequels. Have to get my hands on them and give them a try.
