I’m Matt Bitner, sole developer of A Robot Named Fight! It recently launched on Nintendo Switch. AMA!

Recommended Posts

Hi r/NintendoSwitch! For the past two years, I’ve been hard at work creating my passion project, A Robot Named Fight!, a roguelite metroidvania where you jump and explode meat beasts with your blaster arm. There was a post on this sub about the game a few weeks ago that I hopped into and got a lot of positive traction. The mods were gracious enough to help me set up an AMA, so here I am!

I left my old job in mobile game development to make the game I had been thinking about for the past decade: a procedurally-generated metroidvania inspired by my favorite retro games, like Super Metroid, Mega Man, and Contra as well as modern classics, such as The Binding of Isaac. While I did get a little help with promotional art, I am responsible for the game's code, design, music, and art.

After a lot of work and many late nights, I self-published on Steam last September and had enough success to continue releasing updates since that time. Eventually, I had the opportunity to bring my game to Nintendo Switch, and it’s been amazing so far.

Check out the trailer!

I’m here with my friend u/jordanosaurusrex, who helped me publish on Switch, and my wife u/Kiki_Orb, who helps with the game’s marketing and community management.

We’re here answering your questions all day long! Ask us anything about game design, indie game development and marketing, pixel art, music, harrowing clinical depression, future plans, slapping the bass, D&D, MTG, tabletop gaming, or my two troublesome and disappointing dogs.

Also… we’ve got a Switch promo code to give away! At the end of the day, I’ll randomly choose from all the top-level and follow-up questions and, after announcing here, send a message to the winner.
