Sacramento, CA –January 6, 2021– Independent development studio Dronami releases the cartoony, skill-based boxing action game Billion Beat on Steam today with a discounted price of $6/€4.94/£4.39.
 
Inspired by the classic Super Punch-Out!!, in Billion Beat you’ll have to fight through a gauntlet of boss fights with multiple bizarre forms such as the final one –a large alien penis-man that can ejaculate on the player.

 
Billion Beat is chock-full of raunchy, irreverent, satirical humor and a unique style reminiscent of 90’s cartoons like Ren & Stimpy or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s also got a hard-hitting soundtrack with Hip Hop and House bangers.
 
Execute techniques with perfect timing to unleash powered-up attacks as you upgrade your fists, seek advice from your Mascoach, and buy and use Dranx to make fights more manageable. The gameplay is easy to pick up yet difficult to master, and struggling players can take advantage of the RPG elements to win.

 
Billion Beat will be launched in Early Access. While in the current version you can play with one character only, the full game will contain two additional characters with unique fighting styles.
 
The final version of Billion Beat will also contain Tronix, cyborg parts that can power-up the player, as well as the unique Story Beatz feature that allows the player to learn opponents’ backstories by punching them in the face.
