i joined steam 10 years ago today to play rag doll kung fu, the first 3rd party game on steam.

Amazing fighting game with responsive physics and bullet time slowdowns. Still one of the best and most unique games in my library. The reviews don't do it justice, this game went over most heads due to the difficulty curve and was rightly criticised for being abandoned by Mark Healey when he went on to develop little big planet.

Ignore my playtime, we battered this game before records began

pros-

- deep ragdoll physics creates amazing combat sequences
- weapons, bullet time and magic from your fingertips
- awesome game modes
- create your own characters and put them in the game
- great music and comedy kung-fu artstyle
- original concept

cons-

- hardly any players
- steep difficulty curve
- the game was abandoned so many promised features never came
- the servers are now down (Hamachi or die)


special mention to Ceej, Blupilltaker, Siff, Kitty, Platycus, The Dude, and other forgotten warriors who made this game great

9/10

This game was the first indie title on steam.... the dialogue is ridiquolous like when the villain said "Bring me his pubes.

its a pretty fun game but to be honest it takes a while to get used to it,like the controls are weird but you get used to it only problem i have with this game is there is no support for this game anymore.This is a decent game if your thinking of playing it i would recommend getting friends to play it with you for it gets rather boring if your done with the story mode. 7/10

Its almost worth $10 just for the kung fu music mixer on the title screen that you unlock as you beat the game. It is a bit lacking with the multiplayer down and it's disappointing the main menu still lists features as "coming soon" after ten years. But still a pretty nice title for the price.

This game is quirky, fun, and one of the games that's been in my library the longest. The controls are a bit difficult to master, but there are few things better than single-session multiplayer on this innovative fighting game with your friends and multiple USB mice. Also, bear in mind that this game was released in 2005 and pay no mind to the haters who bought it in 2011 or later and got mad because it can't measure up to today's stellar indie titles.

Anyone considering getting this game at this point, because the price has come down to 10 bucks... don't. On a functional level, it's not playable. The control scheme is not for most people, and you will cause yourself carpal tunnel syndrome from spinning the mouse in rapid circles while holding a button to charge up. That's if it starts up. And considering it's been abandoned by the creators, there's no bug support if it won't. Beyond the technical issues, the plot and styling of this game is in some of the most poor taste I've ever seen, from fake Chinese speach clearly thought up by white people to blatant homophobia I get the uncomfortable feeling isn't actually joking, it really has all the most reprehensible behavior you'd expect from fratboys. If this crap was done in the guise of joking, it'd be comparable to if a standup comedian delivered a KKK-grade black joke and then spent five minutes yelling "ISN'T THAT FUNNY!?" at an audience that clearly doesn't agree. If you want a game that's playable or has a well-designed, non-offensive story, this one probably isn't for you. If you have no taste, waste ten bucks and see if it even runs for you. For my money, I'd be better off burning 10 bucks for warmth or literally eating it. It was on sale for $2.50 (I believe 90% off at the time) when I got it and I still want my money back.

For the time, it was really good. I enjoy playing it now.
There's something so satisfying about fighting ninjas with comical weapons, kickflying across the dojo, and unlocking everything just by telling the master that you like sticky rice.

Rag Doll Kung Fu.
First Non-Valve Tittle available for sale on steam.
Rag Doll Kung Fu developer Mark Healey cashed in with the first fully marked title based on the Source Havok Engine.
Released shortly after Half 2 Episodes, Rag Doll Kung Fu offered single and multiplayer games, either online or with multiple mice,
With system requirements as low as: "Pentium 800 MHz (or compatible), 256 MB RAM, Ge-force 2 (or compatible), Windows 98, Internet connection for Steam" you could literally play this game on one of your grandmothers shoes.

Slow Applause.

First non-Valve game on Steam. Bought it when it came out, the dedicated MP servers are long gone but it's worth a play co-op, single player or tunngle/hamachi multiplayer.. worth it just for the cutscenes, theme song and style.. p.s. you can edit the theme song too, change the channels, levels, pitch etc.. funky.

I played this game when it first came out and let me tell you, it was amazing! You may ask yourself why, and write it off as a simple am gimmicky game. The truth is that this game takes some serious skills and has a lot more depth then you would think. There used to be a small friendly and competitive community back in the day and we would host our own tournements. The reason this game died out is not because it wasn't good, it's because there has always been a problem hosting games and playing with others. You see the developer never added dedicated servers as a feature, therefore we all played through pretty much one or two people who somehow were able to host the game. If this community ever came back to life and dedicated servers were added (or something!) , I would be first in line. Long live RDKF!

10/10

I can remember many drunken nights I spent enjoying the $#!+ out of this horribly demented 2d, paper-puppet, kung-fu parody, mushroom trip of a game.
