Developer Nicoll Hunt goes inside his own game of FIST OF AWESOME, beard against bear, to explain how everything works for his Kickstarter campaign. With a cheeky 2D brawler paying respects to Streets of Rage and Final Fight, Hunt promises an over-the-top story along with intuitive touch controls for a mobile game.

The Hard Lines coder first spoke with IndieGames back in May about FIST OF AWESOME, and now the game's end is in sight: an estimated March 2013 release and less than $3,000 away from meeting its Kickstarter goal. For £5 (roughly $8), pledgers will get a copy of the game for iOS or Android.

Finally, as an update to the Kickstarter project, Hunt posted over a minute of straight gameplay from the alpha, showing on iPad how movement works without a virtual controller. That video is after the jump.
