What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access gives Midas Touch Games the opportunity to build Fist of Physics with help from Steam's VR amazing community. As we develop the full game, we will be providing advance details to our audience, gathering feedback, and considering their interests and concerns at every step in our process. We're very excited about the current state of the game, and we are eager to share that with fellow VR enthusiasts.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are expecting the game to be in Early Access for approximately four months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“At launch, the EARLY ACCESS version of this game features three robots to battle in a single environment, over the course of fifteen increasingly challenging matches. Four different weapons - fist, axe, hammer, and sword - will be unlocked as the player makes their way through the matches.

The FULL VERSION will feature six robots to battle, multiple environments, a leaderboard, and more weapons.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The EARLY ACCESS version of Fist of Physics will give players a good sense of the look and feel of the game, though at launch, it will be less than 50% complete from a content perspective.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“EARLY ACCESS is the best time to buy Fist of Physics, since it will be priced at less than 50% than the full release price - and EARLY ACCESS customers will get all content updates at no additional cost.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Midas Touch will be providing weekly updates to the game's community, and we will be reading and considering every bit of feedback from players that we receive. We will always be upfront and transparent with our player base, and we will strive to deliver a gameplay experience that they will love.”

launch day!

Today is the big day at Midas Touch Games - Fist of Physics (early access edition) is finally availale to the whole world on Steam. After six months of work, our team has been able to bring robot brawling to Vive. Of course, we've only just begun; we're still working hard to finish the game. But today is a great day to reflect on what we've completed, and thank those who are choosing to support us in this phase of development.

We wanted to create an experience that could show off our proprietary physics engine, which makes face-offs against bad guys feel real, instead of canned. If you purchase the game, try pushing open a robot's arms when they are blocking, or picking them up, or throwing cars at them. Everything behaves exactly as it would in the real world - if the real world included massive two-story-tall attack robots.

The VR market already has a ton of gun-metal-grey arena shooters, so we wanted to build a game that was colorful, humorous, and totally uninterested in respecting your personal space. Our mechanical beasts like to get right in your face, which we believe helps give you a sense of scale and presence. There aren't many games to compare it directly to, and we're proud of that.

If you've picked up the game, thank you so much. It's an honor to have you as a customer - you're the type of player that makes it possible for us to create and play the types of games that we love. You are our heroes.

Please feel free to give us feedback here: if you get stuck, we'll unstick you. If you have criticisms, we're ready to take 'em. If you have compliments, you'll make our day.

About This Game

Punch a robot in the face! It’s 2037. Robots are running wild in San Francisco, and you need to stop them. Fight through multiple rounds against different opponents to save the city. Fist of Physics uses Midas’ cutting edge VR physics engine to let players literally reach out and touch their opponent. No cheesy canned hit reactions and physically inaccurate responses that break immersion; every response and movement looks real and believable.

Choosing from a variety of weapons, the player can use their own body with the Vive controllers to engage in brutal combat. Each opponent has a unique set of moves for the players to learn to anticipate and counter. A variety of weapons enable the player to adapt their combat style to each opponent.
