What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Punch Planet's versus, online versus, and training modes are ready to be explored with 6 characters to choose from. We are excited to make Punch Planet available during its Early Access development while we balance the game around community feedback. Please join us as we add additional characters, content, and polish to our Sci-Fi indie fighter.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Our goal is to have all 8 characters playable by Q4 2019. Additional content, polish, and balancing may take up to an additional year or more.”

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

“As the game comes to completion we will bring the total cast to 8 characters, update music and fx, as well as add new modes and features including story, arcade, and trials.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Early Access currently includes 6 playable characters, 3 stages, local versus, online multiplayer featuring GGPO, and robust training mode.”

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

“Our Early Access price covers all outlined content leading up to the full release of the game. This includes all characters, stages, modes, and various improvements. Pricing for those who do not participate in Early Access may be different or require additional purchases to receive similar content.”

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

“Players are encouraged to join in discussion on our forums and discord, where all feedback is considered to improve Punch Planet”

About This Game

Punch Planet is a Competitive Sci-Fi 2D fighter with a rich and immersive universe, spanning exotic planets, advanced cities, and alien races.


Punch Planet is developed by 3 longtime competitors in the fighting game community. Our focus it to create a fighting game with a solid foundation of competitive mechanics while also introducing a new depth of story, humor, and design.


Roy, an undercover Detective for the Luna PD is caught up in a galactic conspiracy. Framed for a high profile murder, he must follow his only lead to Planet K-0.

Time Canceling (T-METER)
Galactic Civilization has reached new heights. With the introduction of Time Canceling Devices, users are able to travel through time! The technology is fairly new and limited, currently allowing travel up to 1 second into the past for small corrections to everyday problems. The devices come equipped with an auto fail safe which will disintegrate your former self preventing any possible time paradox.

Use these devices to perform special mechanics such as Double Time Canceling (DTC), Jump Time Canceling (JTC), and Absorb Time Canceling (ATC). Be careful, energy is limited and is directly connected to your TC Meter.

Energy Attacks (E-METER)

Perform enhanced versions of your characters unique attacks by spending 1 E-Meter. Combine 2 or more E-Meter stocks to execute a powerful Advanced Attack.
