Who is Team2Bit?
We’re an indie game studio comprised of 2 brothers located in Santa Cruz, California. We make fun, retro-styled games infused with some modern twists.
Then who’s Team Fist Puncher?
That’s also us. Team Fist Puncher is the name we use on the IGN/YouTube show THE NEXT GAME BOSS. FIST PUNCHER is also the name of our first game release.
What exactly is the NEXT GAME BOSS?
THE NEXT GAME BOSS is a reality TV show where teams of indie developers compete in a series of challenges with the ultimate goal being to make a fully-functional videogame. We were one of the lucky groups chosen to be a part of the show. You can watch THE NEXT GAME BOSS on the IGN/YouTube .START network. In fact, there are a bunch of great shows worth checking out on the .START network. Check out the first episode of THE NEXT GAME BOSS below:
What games do you guys make?
At present we are still working on our first major release, FIST PUNCHER, which will be available later this year on Xbox Live Indie Games. FIST PUNCHER is a 4-player, side-scrolling brawler filled with dozens of levels, unlockable characters, special attacks, and more. Check out the trailer below:

I saw you guys on THE NEXT GAME BOSS. WASHINGTON’S WIG looks hilarious. Will I ever get to play it?
First, thanks to everyone who has voiced support. We cannot express how much we appreciate it. Second, we’re working on the logistics of releasing WASHINGTON’S WIG. We’ll keep you posted.
I saw you guys on THE NEXT GAME BOSS. WASHINGTON’S WIG looks awful. How come you didn’t make something more artsy and high-brow?
We certainly could have tried to make a more esoteric, fringe game to appeal to a tiny minority of indie college snobs who spend most of their time moaning and groaning on obscure message boards from their dorm rooms and parents’ basements, but instead we tried to make a fun, light-hearted game that would appeal to the judges at IGN (a global leader in entertainment media) in hopes of winning a $10,000 prize package and a spot in IGN’s kick-ass Indie Open House.
Can we hang out?
Sure. We’ll be at GDC – find us there if you want to rap about games, sports, wigs, or whatever. Just look for the 2 grizzled lumberjacks. That’s us.
