Discussing the sweet science
Punch Club 2: Fast Forward was announced for Switch in February, and we recently learned that it’s set to arrive on July 20th, 2023. Ahead of that launch, Nikita, the Creative Director of Lazy Bear Games, and Bulat, the Lead Game Designer have hosted a stream to answer all your Punch Club 2: Fast Forward questions. You can watch the info-filled segment above.
It’s been 20 long years since a nameless cool guy punched the big bad and everyone was really happy or something. Welcome to the future: it’s corrupt, sea shells have replaced toilet rolls, and everything’s cyberpunk now. Walk the same, but now neon, streets Roy did as you’re thrown into an adventure filled with hilarity, 80s nostalgia, and punching. Even more punching than before. The mean streets of the under-city are a disease, but you could be the cure. Fighting is the only way to blow off steam and earn valuable good person points, which you’re going to need, kid.
Life in the rat race is fast-paced, time-consuming, and requires effective management to survive, and Punch Club 2: Fast Forward is the same! It’s literally a simulation game! Manage your time and funds, whilst climbing to the top of the fighting leagues, solving crimes, working for the police, mob, mafia, and about anyone else you cross paths with. Whilst nothing beats good old-fashioned blood, sweat, and tears, neuro training and illegal software sure sound tempting. Even if there is a slight risk you’ll be exposed as a fraud and your last brain cell will pack up and leave.
Completing quests will give you access to new fighting schools, moves, dollars, good person points, and even the Lion Queen on VHS! Multiple branching storylines are impacted by your moral choices, so do the right thing! Or don’t. We’re not your boss.
