Description
Release date: March 2014
Fatal Theory is an over-the-top, side scrolling beat-'em-up like the ones you grew up on, but infinitely better?! Gritty retro pixel art, tight controls and a story line that makes the writer want to drink until he forgets, all guaranteed to caress you with sweet nostalgia while munching on your brainy bits.

Story
When Nick Mayhem gets wind of zombies walking the streets, he doesn't just sit around waiting for the worst to happen. Hell no, he picks up a baseball bat and takes the carnage head on! Soon he finds himself tangled in a plot involving demons, a talking sword, a whole army of possessed soldiers and one total babe of a sniper -- can Nick Mayhem save his city from destruction? Will he find love in a city mid-apocalypse?!



Let's Break 'Em!
With an engine built from the ground up by two brothers who love all things fighting, this game borrows the best from the fighting and beat'em up genres and mashes them together. The result is fluid controls, insane aerial juggling and devastating special attacks to let you wreck your way through hordes of enemies at a time!

Features
  • All about fluid controls and wicked combos -- the bigger your combo, the higher your damage multiplier!
  • Power up! Find new weapons, level them up to unlock devastating new special attacks, and pump up Nick's stats at the shop.
  • Bizarre story, told in cool comic book style.
  • Local multiplayer: co-op in arcade mode or duke it out in versus, with gamepad support for 1-2 controllers.
  • Made for modding: literally everything in the game can be reskinned!

Fatal Theory by 2Hit Studio is, in the simplest terms - fun... The humour laced throughout Fatal Theory is my favourite mix of dark but cheesy... The controls feel responsive and attacks are satisfying to land... We don't give numerical scores for games here at FairPlay but if we did, Fatal Theory would get a bloody high one.

Нереально трешовая игра, очень хорошо подобрана музыка, и если игра появится в магазине Steam, непременно её куплю!

The art looks good, but I'm a little bit concerned about the design part (UI, Dialogues, etc..). Despite this I would buy it!
