Here's an audio message from our team lead.

Fantasy Strike is now on Steam Early Access.

We’re developing a fighting game called Fantasy Strike. The team is led by David Sirlin, an ex-Street Fighter dev. We’re boiling down the genre to the fundamentals and cutting out everything that we don’t need. Our game is so simple to play that even if you don’t normally play fighting games, you still might love Fantasy Strike. And for fighting game veterans: this is a tournament, e-sport game.


There are no complex motions for moves; everything is just a single button press. This makes it easy to play on any controller: a keyboard, a gamepad, a joystick, or anything really.

CAST OF CHARACTERS
Fantasy Strike features the same diverse set of characters as the Yomi card game:


GIVING YOUR SUPPORT
Would you like to support us in making Fantasy Strike more awesome? We struggle to afford development, but we’d really like to add more content and features for a long time. Everything you contribute here goes directly into making the project better.

If you’d like to support us, wow thank you, and here are two handy steps:
1) Buy the game on Steam Early Access, here.
2) Pledge your monthly support here on Patreon.

If you pledge $10 or more, you’ll get access to a special “wild west” version of the game where we can show you our in-progress work that isn’t ready for the general public to see. That might include characters, stages, even game modes. This version, for Patreon patrons only, requires that you own the regular version of the game on Steam for logistical reasons. It’s a whole lot easier for us to distribute updates to you this way. Anyway, being a patron will give you access to the instructions how to access the wild west version, and it will continue to be updated for as long as you’re a patron.

Here's instructions to access the wild west version once you're a patron:
1) Right click the Fantasy Strike game in your Steam library. Choose "Properties" then click on the "Betas" tab.
2) There is a field to enter a code. Enter "patronpower99" and then click the "check code" button.
3) There's a dropdown menu on that screen. You can use that to switch to "wild west". When you do this, the name of the game in your Steam library will become "Fantasy Strike [wild west]".
4) Run the game.
5) The game's title screen has a button to authenticate on patreon, which makes sure you are a current patron of silver or above. Click that and a Patreon authentication page will open in your browser. Log in to Patreon (if you weren't already logged-in) and then click "Allow."
6) VERY IMPORTANT. The wild west version has a SEPARATE online system from the normal, live game. When you are ready to switch back to the live game that you can play with the general public, remember to right click the game in your library again, choose Properties -> Betas, and change the dropdown to "NONE - Opt out of all beta programs". You can switch back and forth between the wild west and live versions this way any time you want, as much as you want.

You really want to support what we’re doing and help make it happen. You get all the previous rewards, but it's not really about that at this level. You’re helping an indie fighting game come to life that’s trying to be truly accessible.
