New Accessibility Features!

As we continue work on Way of the Passive Fist, we're adding lots of new levels, new enemies & new bosses... but we're also fleshing out our accessibility features to maintain our commitment to making sure as many players as possible can enjoy the game.

We think some of these features are pretty cool, and we wanted to share a few of them today.

XL HUD

The HUD (heads-up display) contains a lot of important info about your character, so it's vital that it be clear and easy to see. If you find it's too small, you have the option to swap in the "XL" version, which is 40% larger.

Combat Info

During encounters, information about your recent combat moves appears in the top right corner of the screen. This is a rolling tally of your recent moves (parries, dodges, enemies defeated, etc.) that animates and updates constantly as you defend yourself in the fight. For some players, this can be distracting, or possibly even overwhelming, so we've included an option to turn that off. The most critical information: your combo count and energy bar, stay on screen but the extra info is left off.

High Contrast Visuals

This setting provides players with the option to view the game with a higher emphasis on vital game elements. With this setting turned on, we adjust the saturation of non-crucial background (and sometimes foreground) elements to make characters, checkpoints, items and more pop off the screen and stand out.

Here are a few screens with the High Contrast setting turned on.





We hope these options will enrich the experience for anyone that uses them.

Stay Tuned for more updates soon!

With colonists disappearing and maniacs running wild, the Wanderer must stand firm, stay calm and fight for answers in this unique modern brawler!
