Punch Club: The Dark Fist coming tomorrow to Steam; mobile on Thursday (Video)
What happened to Fluffy the cat?
When we released Punch Club in January, everyone started wondering – what on earth happened to Fluffy the cat?
At one point (after taking some “theraputical” drugs) you have a conversation with Fluffy, but not much interaction later. Plus, when you move houses, Fluffy’s stuff is there…. but the cat himself is missing.
Everything will be answered tomorrow in Punch Club: The Dark Fist – the superhero expansion for Punch Club!
Here are the details to get excited about:
Twitch Integration with betting & rewards – tomorrow we’re launching our own Twitch Rewards Program (cleverly named tinyRewards).

About This Game
Your father was brutally murdered before your eyes. Now you must train hard, eat chicken and punch dudes in the face to earn your place in the Punch Club ranks, and discover who ended your father’s life.
Punch Club is a boxing tycoon management game with multiple branching story lines. Your goal is clear, but how you get there depends on whether you want to legitimately climb the rankings, or take the more ridiculous, shady route.
Along the way you’ll want to focus your talents. Will you take the Way of the Tiger, the Way of the Turtle, or the Way of the [other one?]? Your strength, accuracy and agility all depends on whichever Way enlightens your path. Do you have stripes, or flippers?
And every decision will matter, especially in your social life. You’ll be juggling friendships, love life, work, recreational time, relationships, and possible stardom, all alongside your gym time and fighting aligators. It’s not all just pumping iron, you know.
