Where do I get the the open alpha, closed alpha or the pre-alpha! 

Through this link.

Where can I see what you are working on?



When is the game getting released?

We don't have a release date yet and don’t do estimations but we hope to finish as soon as possible, the simple answer is that the game will come when it's totally ready.

Why did you remake the physics system?

The new animation system is far more sophisticated than the old one. One of the major reasons development has taken longer than expected is that the old system was extremely hard to work in. Any time we tried to change a unit another one would break, if we hadn't changed it, development would have taken forever.

Will the open/closed alpha be updated?

The alphas will not be updated.

How much will the game cost?

The game will cost between 15 and 20 USD.

How many and which factions will be in the game? And how many units are there?

We’re currently remaking the physics system and all of the units, we’ll let you know as soon as that work is done.

How long has TABS been in development?

The first version of TABS, the game jam version was made in July 2016 but TABS didn’t go into full-time development until around November of 2016 because we were working on our other game Clustertruck.

How do I get the units in the videos shown on youtube such as the wizard?

Some of the units we’ve shown on our youtube channel will be available in the full game, they’re not in any current public version of the game.

Why haven’t you uploaded videos in a while?

We were working on some boring background stuff for TABS that didn’t make for good videos and gifs.

Will the game have a workshop?

Yes there will be an unit creator where you can create your own units. 

What happened to the Neon faction for the full game?

The Neon faction was removed for the full game since it wasn’t good game-play and didn’t work as well with the other factions. We might revamp it for a future update after release.

What do you do with all of the suggestions for the game?

We read through all of the suggestions we get and some serve as inspirations for the game, usually with a twist such as having the firework dragon instead of a classic dragon.

Which platforms will be supported at release?

At release we’ll support PC and possibly Mac and Linux. A couple of months after the initial release we’re aiming to release the game for Xbox, PS4 and The Switch.

As for app versions of the game for mobile devices it depends on how well we can get it to run.

How can I support TABS development?

You can support us by getting our other games: Clustertruck, Square Brawl and Stick Fight.

Another way is to contribute to making the TABS community a friendly and welcoming place through suggestions and helping others!

Which engine is used for making TABS?

We’re working with Unity.




  • Why are you making another game? Shouldn't you be working on TABS?

    We didn’t take much time away from TABS, we took two months to work on TABG because we wanted to bring you something while you wait for TABS. We knew that TABZ last year, and Supertruck the year before was very appreciated by our community and thought we’d keep up the tradition by making yet another game for you to play.

  • Why are you making a battle royale game?!

    TABG is an April Fools joke, we’ve done one every year since 2016. We've previously combined one of our games with another genre or game. The first year we made Supertruck, a mix between the game Superhot and Clustertruck. Last year we made TABZ which is a mix between TABS and DAY-Z. We spend an enormous amount of lunch breaks and nights playing battle royale games, this is an homage to a genre we love.

  • Why does the game cost money?? TABZ was free!

    The first 100 hours after the release will be free for all and that means free forever, if you get the game before the first 100 hours end you will NOT have to pay to keep it. The 4.99$ price after the first 100 hours goes to preserving the game such as server costs etc. The reason we could keep TABZ free is because it's a peer to peer game without server costs. We may go F2P in the future if there is enough support for it.

  • Will there be any updates to the game?

    We originally stated that we weren't going to update the game but we never anticipated this many players to play it. We are very adamant that we want to finish our other game TABS but we also see that people want TABG updated, here are some posts about what is in store for TABG: and

  • Is there going to be a mac/console version of the game?

  • Will the game be on Linux?

    There are no current plans of making a Linux version of Stick Fight. 
  • Will the game be for PS4/Switch/Xbox?

    • Yes! We have ports for console on the way.

  • I am unable to join a game/I only get a circle with a cross when I join quick match.

    • The issue is most likely due to either your internet connection or your firewall or the person you're playing with's. Check up on your connection, disable your firewall and restart your computer and the game before you try to re-enter quick match.

    • Tip from Swarmed:

      "I had the same problem. When I verified the integrity of the game files it gave an error on one file which was downloaded again. After this quick match worked for me, so try it too!

      In your library in steam, right click on stick fight and press properties > local files > verify integrity of game files"

  • My stick dude/My friends stick dude doesn’t move!

    • This is also most likely to the firewall, please disable it and restart the game/steam.

  • Will there be any updates to the game?

    • Yes! There will be some updates and bug fixes.

  • Will there be single player/AI?

    • There are no current plans for a single player mode in the game.

  • My controller spawns two stick dudes! 

    • Plug all the controllers in beforehand before starting the game, if you use a wireless one, connect it to your pc before starting the game.
      This isn't really a bug with the game, but with windows assigning all of them as the same controller (controller 1)
      After connecting them up and booting the game, press the A button in sequence (so not all at once) and it should work fine, if not, let us know!

  • I'm getting Steam not initialized when starting the game
    • Restart your computer and restart the game and steam as an administrator. 




Are you not working on Totally Accurate Battle Simulator anymore in favor of TABZ?

We're still working on TABS, don't you worry! TABZ was our April Fool's Day joke for 2017, but instead of tricking players into thinking we made a fake game we made a free game you can actually play.

TABZ is a first person shooter, multiplayer zombie survival game that we made in ten days.

How do I download TABZ?

There is no current way to download TABZ.

TABZ is only available for PC.
