Retro Knock-Out! Coming Soon to Steam - Beta Available Now

VanillaBeast is developing Retro Knock-Out!, a parody of the classic NES Punch Out! game featuring over 30 parody boxers with hilarious intros, dialog and animations. It even comes with a 10-point must scoring system and three judges and one of them is shady.

The game is also rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

Each match packs a full experience, with boxer intros, ringwalks, and a 10-point system just like the pros use. Outside the ring, VanillaBeast’s story unfolds in beautifully illustrated scenes created by noted artist Oleg Okunev (games Perky Little Things, Metropolis: Lux Obscura, and “Pestilence,” among other projects), but don’t let the old-school look fool you.

The Retro Knock-Out! demo is available now as well. Simply join the official Discord channel and type !BetaKey to get a code. The full version is coming soon to Steam but an official release date has not been revealed. Check out the screenshots, features and trailer below.
