Press Releases
  Punch Club, the 90s boxing tycoon E3 Demo is right here
  Share on Twitter RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Last week we revealed Punch Club at E3, the 90s boxing tycoon developed by Lazy Bear Games in Russia, and publishing by your friendly neighborhood indie publisher tinyBuild. 

  • Punch Club is a throwback to the 80s/90s tycoon game
  • Manage the daily life of an aspiring boxer
  • Get into fights and strategically choose your fighting styles
  • Train hard, upgrade your skills
  • Make lifechanging choices. Pizza or Meat? Energy drink or water?
Punch Club plays like a management sim merged with a dating sim (you control one character). It follows the story of vengeance -- find out who killed your father by ranking up in the Punch Club, and figure out what is actually happening. Also fight crocodiles. 

In typical indie style, we do things differently. So why not share the actual E3 demo we had?

Feel free to stream/preview it. It's a short demo that gives you an idea of where we're going with Punch Club.
