Rag Doll Kung
Fu, a wildly entertaining new game from designer Mark Healey, will be
made available to gamers everywhere on October 12, 2005 via Steam.
a wide collection of single and multiplayer games, either online or
with multiple mice, Rag Doll Kung Fu provides players with one of the
most creative and unique game experiences delivered in years.
Additionally, between game rounds, the challenges of an aspiring Kung
Fu master are revealed via outlandish cut scenes inspired by classic
Kung Fu cinema.
The game is the brainchild of artist and
designer Mark Healey (who moonlights as a lead artist at Lionhead
Entertainment). During last year's Game Developer Conference, Healey
presented Rag Doll to industry colleagues. Immediately after this
presentation, several Valve employees invited Healey to visit Valve and
discuss Steam distribution of Rag Doll Kung Fu.
"Rag Doll was
originally just an idea for me and some friends to have some fun making
an old style Kung Fu movie," said Healey. "It's amazing to think that a
tongue in cheek film project has now evolved into a full game being
distributed via Steam. I hope everyone enjoys it as much as my friends
and I enjoyed making it."
Steam offers developers and publishers
a direct distribution channel to over 5.5 million customers. Rag Doll
Kung Fu will be made available for purchase via Steam on October 12,
2005 for $12.95. For more information on Steam, please visit
