Whoa whoa whoa we've been GREENLIT!
  • We promised ports to Mac and Linux if we got greenlit, and we're gonna deliver.
  • We also promised some art updates. It won't be a complete overhaul so I definitely don't wanna set that expectation, but we'll do a bit of a gloss job, jazz things up here and there.
  • We have a bunch of paperwork to do, which is suuuuuper booooring (but will totally be worth it when our game is up on Steam!)

SO thanks again. We're seeing stars.

P.S. I know this announcement is actually a little bit late, I put up announcements on twitter, fb, our website, etc. but unfortunately when you're only a team of two working part-time you always drop the ball somewhere. There's so much to remember running a studio! So we thank you for your patience and understanding, and can't wait to get the game out and into your hands!

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.

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!

  • 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!

The effect remains... of tingling the nostalgia gland pining for these kinds of games. As the combat and gameplay goes, this is incredibly fun...when it is finally completed it should be one hell of a good time.

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.

Yeah, we're sorry for the wait and thanks for your patience. We've learnt the hard way that if you don't have a budget to pay yourself a wage as an indie studio, life can wreak all kinds of havoc with your project timelines. Basically it's impossible to plan ahead when you can't work stable hours haha, who knew.

But we are actively working at it. Matt's got steam achievements in the game, I'm updating some of the art and then we just need to cut a new trailer and it's ready to go. Once we've locked in a release date with Steam, I'll make the announcement. We're very close now!

Hope it's out soon! :)

I bought through the Indie Gala Greenlight Bundle 2, but I know some people bought through Desura, which is reported to be in bankruptcy now.

Sorry for the radio silence everyone, we are super excited to be greenlit and we THANK YOU ALL tremendously for voting! It'll probably be a couple of months before we can get this baby of ours released (see the announcement I posted above) but hold onto your butts, 'cause it's on its way.
