What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“"Don't Pick On The Fat Kid" is still a work in progress. In the meantime, we want to collect feedback from actual players to help fine-tune the game and possibly even add some unexpected new features before going full retail.

If you're looking for the perfect game to add to your library, you might want to wait for the full release. But if you're eager to help Fat Kid grow, now you can be a part of the Early Access Experience.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“With over 1,200 hours of logged in development time, I feel that the game should be ready for full release in 2 to 3 months. (That's about 90 cheeseburgers in Fat Kid time)

Watch for updates on the Steam store page.”

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

  • Steam Achievements
  • Leaderboards
  • Pickup and throw objects
  • Pickup enemies and use them as a weapon

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Don't Pick On The Fat Kid is being improved very quickly. Here's a list of active features and abilities within the current state of the game.

  • Fully playable single player game mode

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

Update 1.03: Sprees & Combo Bonuses

Broadcaster / Voice Announcements
Added an announcer voice that broadcasts Sprees. You'll hear a voice say different things for every 10 combos performed.

Fat Kid will only use a left and right punch until the combos begin to stack up. For every 10 combos, you'll unlock additional punch and kick animations which increase damage and knockback to enemies. There are now 8 punch and 8 kick animations. Bonuses are available at x10, x20, x30, x40, x50, x60, x70, x80, x90 and x100 combos intervals.

Update 1.02: Robot Laser & Bug Fixes

Robot Laser
The boss in Scene 2 was updated to feature a ranged laser gun weapon that fires laser beams while pursuing the player. This special laser gun attack is in addition to his regular close range melee attack.

While making changes to the Robot's missile attacks, the Drones from Scene 6 have also been updated to allow them to shoot while pursuing.

Enemy Damage Bug
While play testing the Robot on Nightmare, I noticed a glitch where enemies were doing 3x more damage than they should have been doing. I eventually found the bug and fixed it. Now enemies seem to do the correct amount of damage for harder difficulty settings.
