STORY

"They can frame me...chase me...try to kill me. But I'll never stop fighting....NOT TILL I'M DEAD!"

Roy, an undercover Detective for the Luna PD is caught up in a galactic conspiracy. Framed for a high profile murder, he must follow his only lead to Planet K-0. Known to many as Punch Planet, it is the central hub for the evil scum of the Universe. There, he will have to track down the real murderer and bring them back to his home world in an attempt to clear his name.

Web Comic

We are working on a free digital web comic which will be released in chapters leading up to the release of Punch Planet.

Story Mode Updates

Story mode will include animated cutscenes of the digital web comic chapters. It will also include Arcade and Survival Style challenges as you play as Roy through the main story arc.

GAMEPLAY

Versus Modes

Punch Planet features competitive multiplayer and online gameplay. Players may chose from a classic versus mode or Tag versus which pits 2 characters against 2 characters.

Arcade modes

Punch planet will feature a variety of single player modes including Arcade, trials, training, survival, and story.

MECHANICS

Time Canceling

Galactic Civilization has reached new heights. With the introduction of Time Canceling Devices, users are able to travel through time! The technology is fairly new and limited, currently allowing travel up to 1 second into the past for small corrections to everyday problems. The devices come equipped with an auto fail safe which will disintegrate your former self preventing any possible time paradox.

Use these devices to perform special mechanics such as Double Time Canceling (DTC), Jump Time Canceling (JTC), and Absorb Time Canceling (ATC).

DTC- Cancel the recovery of any attack that hits your opponent.
JTC- Jump out of dashes into short hops.
ATC- Absorb any incoming attack.

Be careful, energy is limited and is directly connected to your TC Meter.

Enhanced and Advanced Attacks

Perform enhanced versions of your characters unique attacks by spending 1 EX meter. Combine 2 EX meter stocks to execute a powerful Advanced Attack.

FEATURES
  • 8 Playable Characters & Unique Stages
  • Classic Versus and Tag Versus Modes
  • Online Multiplayer
  • Competitive Play
  • Arcade and Training Modes

9/10, game looks a bit on the slow side but i'm really excited to try it, this looks miles better than SFV

Also maybe just a tad bit faster in speed, but slower fighters are the thing these days so maybe a good move as a developer. I'm soooo excited to see this game progress and maybe see a little more style representation since you have the basic template shoto character down. I'm curious how rushdown, zoning and grapplers are represented as well as maybe a super quirky character here and there, oh if we are lucky maybe a non-humanoid character, praise be to the Blazblue creators for the wonderful Arkune, though he utterly sucks to fight against lol.

Frames look really good, seems to have a SFV pacing feel too it. Deff a lot of neutral potential in that match up video at least, the specials are subtle but still unique looking. Love all the Hard KO, Soft KO stuff on the sides to really advance fighting game mechanic accessibility for beginners. The theme itself and the team fortress models mixed with indie comic art and scenery is just beautiful and not just another World Warrior or Anime Movie fighting game. I do feel that a little more flashy sparks would be nice to see, though that may be very character oriented depending on the direction of the game.
