Gang Beasts is going it alone and self-publishing future updates

Silly wobble person fighting game Gang Beasts is going it alone, planning to self-publish future updates. Last year, Boneloaf's former publisher Double Fine Presents was bought up by Microsoft, eventually saying that continuing to be a publisher after being bought by a bigger publisher "doesn't make sense," and calling the new structure a "complicated issue." Looks like Gang Beasts will come out of the equation…

Have You Played… Gang Beasts?

A lot of my friends from school have done things like have children or move to other countries now, but in the wilderness years of 2010-2016 we still all returned to our home town every Christmas, primarily to see our families, but also, secondarily, to get absolutely destroyed on Christmas eve.A tertiary reason was that my friend Tim, who has now both had a child…

The adorably ultraviolent Gang Beasts is fully out now

Round up your chums for a spot of adorable ultraviolence, as the wonderful Gang Beasts has launched out of early access. Gang Beasts is a multiplayer arena fighting game where players will hurl each other off the tops of speeding trucks, out windows, and into industrial grinders, grabbing and grappling in physics-simulated fisticuffs. Pummel your pal into exhaustion, hoist them up, go to throw them…

Gang Beasts hurls free trial weekend into the arena

Hurling your mate through a plate glass window, into a grinder, or off a speeding van is somehow even more fun in Gang Beasts [official site] than in real life. It's a wonderfully daft multiplayer brawler about gelatinous squishmen who have your usual punches and kicks but, crucially, have a button to grip - meaning you can grab onto anything and everyone, tossing people around…

Gang Beasts Grapples With Online Multiplayer Beta

Some of you live high atop remote mountains with no other people around, which means local multiplayer game and gelatinous brawler Gang Beasts [official site] has thus far been useless to you. No more! The game of haphazard punching in comically hazardous locations now has an online multiplayer beta, so mountain-dwellers everywhere can play together - assuming you can get access.

Party Games: Gang Beasts And The Wild Rumpus

Welcome to a new (probably monthly) series on the rise of the party game, where we celebrate all things ‘local multiplayer’. How do we do that? We dispatch Brendan to some of gaming’s best blowouts to schmooze and play with the partygoers. This week, The Wild Rumpus and a chat with the brothers who made Gang Beasts.There’s a paddling pool full of water outside a…

Brawl Of The Wild: Double Fine To Publish Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts, even in pre-release form, is one of the best games I've played this year. It's a multiplayer brawling game, with elements of Dreamcast classic Powerstone in among the wrestling and clumsy acrobatics. Whether you're struggling to roll a momentarily unconscious foe out of a ferris wheel carriage, or stumbling headfirst into a meat grinder, Gang Beasts is a wonderful combination of applied skill…

Hands On: Gang Beasts

Currently in alpha, Gang Beasts is free to download and you should grab it right now. It's a surprisingly nuanced multiplayer beat 'em up that combines playgrounds packed with perilous physics and a control scheme that makes combat a sequence of shoving, grappling and tripping over your own fists. Rounds often come to a halt as the last Beasts standing collapse into a meat grinder…

Oh Wow Gang Beasts Has A Ferris Wheel Level Now Geez

Not every game needs its every update covered, but Gang Beasts might. It's an indie single-screen fighting game with wobble physics, designed for 1-4 players to stumble around, punching and grabbing and tossing one another into meat grinders. Its latest alpha - 0.0.2, yep - adds three new levels, including one that set on a working ferris wheel and another with the game's first set…

Gang Beasts Is A Physics-Driven Jelly Baby Brawler

Since Nidhogg is finally out, the world needs a new in-development local multiplayer brawler to obsess over. I suggest that game should be Gang Beasts: a physicsy fighting game that seems to fall somewhere between the awkward shoving of Sumotori Dreams and that thing people do as kids/cool adults where they mash their jelly babies together in mock-fights before eating them.Trailer and download link below.
