FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

Staffordshire, United Kingdom, April 7th - Independent developers Edgehog are excited to announce their first game, HoloFist, a dark-humored creature battler set in a world where fighting is literally known fisting! (and nothing else!) HoloFist is currently set for 2021 release on PC via Steam, you can add the game to your wishlist now, as well as checking out the game's new announcement trailer.

Tie-in games for animated shows can often get a bad wrap-- but OUR game for the hit Notflix series “HoloFist” is a cut above-- ...huh? ...the show doesn’t even exist? Erm… Regardless! This turn-based creature battler follows the adventures of Mindy and her HoloBuddies as she travels around the mysterious island known as “Fistopia”, where players will need to strategically maneuver their team through grid-based combat arenas, which combine elements of deck building and rhythm-based timing, bringing a fresh take on the creature battling genre. And don’t forget to keep your buddies well fed! (Pizza is a highly recommended good XP source)

HoloFist breaks the ‘norm’ of what you have come to expect from creature battling games. Not only with the more in-depth battle system but also with the game’s humor, which, if it hasn’t been obvious yet, leans towards a more tongue-in-cheek style (Fingers thumb and palm combined, come on friends, it’s fisting time!). This humor is the backbone for the game’s narrative and will always be over-present when trying to just have a normal conversation.

HoloFist is currently planned for a 2021 release on PC via Steam. Developer Edgehog is hopeful of a console release at a later date, but the small independent team is solely focused on the PC build of HoloFist at the moment. To keep up to date with more information on HoloFist then follow the game's developmental process on Twitter or Facebook.
