One Finger Death Punch

The sequel to the brutally simple rhythm game One Finger Death Punch will arrive on PC in April, and will contain hidden versions of both the first game and a secret cancelled project, according to developer Silver Dollar.

We already knew the game was coming at some point in Spring next year, but this news narrows it down. It's also coming to PC at least a month before consoles, which is nice to see—studio co-founder Jon Flook told Destructoid that the PC version is "90% done".

As for the hidden games within a game, Flook said: "We have some real awesome stuff in there for our old fans. Our first game is hidden in One Finger Death Punch 2, as is our most recent cancelled project. We don't even care if people find them—it's perfectly okay."

The sequel is worth getting excited about: I'm not usually a fan of rhythm games but I got hooked on One Finger Death Punch, and loved the way it choreographed its stick figure fights. Tom loved it too—you can read his thoughts on it here. The sequel was announced in March.

We have an updated trailer for OFDP2. The characters are customizable but the default is a plain stickman.

The gameplay is getting refined and I'd say we're 90% there. It plays better than the first game. It's fairer and more challenging in a less cheap way.

One Finger Death Punch 2 will be playable (alpha build... still much work to be done) at this year's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco at the Moscone Center.

We'll be showcasing at the Indie MEGABOOTH on March 19th and 20th.

One Finger Death Punch

One Finger Death Punch was a brutal, brilliant and surprisingly addicting rhythm fighting game about massacring stick figures to the beat. And it's getting a sequel. Developer Silver Dollar Games recently announced One Finger Death Punch 2 on Facebook, adding that it will come out "when it's ready." 

The studio further explained the release date in a Facebook comment. "We're a year out from completion, it's still just the two of us," Silver Dollar said. "Just the polish and UI alone is going to take a solid eight months to finish up." The trailer for GDC 2018's Indie Megabooth also pegs it for a spring 2019 release.

One Finger Death Punch - (Alice O'Connor)

Left-click, attack to your left. Right-click, attack to your right. From these simple controls, One Finger Death Punch builds into a ludicrously fast barrage of blows as torrents of enemies assault from both sides. It’s fast, it’s deadly, it’s a whole heap of fun, and it’s getting a sequel. After yonks of muttering about a sequel, developers Silver Dollar Games have now properly announced One Finger Death Punch 2. It’s still over a year out, due in spring 2019, but for now you can watch some serious stickman fisticuffs in this trailer: (more…)

One Finger Death Punch - (Steven Messner)

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time.>

It’s ludicrous to me how good One Finger Death Punch [Steam page] is. It’s a stick-man fighting game that harkens back to my wasted youth spent on tasteless websites like, but it’s also one of the sleekest rhythm games I’ve ever played. Now, when I say rhythm game I’m not talking about punching to the beat, but the rhythm of combat that becomes so frantic it’s practically musical as stick-y parts fly across the screen.
