• Will the game be on Mac and Linux?

    • The game will most likely be available for mac in a couple of weeks, it’s likely it will also be available for Linux users.

  • Will the game be for PS4/Switch/Xbox?

    • Hopefully the game gets popular enough to port it to other platforms in the future!

  • 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.

  • Is it possible to buy a 4-pack of the game?

  • Yes! You can find it on our Humble Bundle store at:

  • Where can I get the game?

  • What are the controls of the game for keyboard?

    • WASD-keys for moving/jumping, right click to block, left click to punch or shoot and F for throwing weapons. Enter is chat. 

  • 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!

  • Will you add workshop support to the game?! 
    • There are no current plans for this, although it may happen in the future :)


  • 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?

You can download TABZ through Steam by logging in at Activate your key this way:

Having trouble with TABS open alpha? Here are some known bugs and questions:

I haven't gotten the email! 

The email is most likely in your spam or promotions folder. In the unlikely event it isn't there please go to this link.

Where is the neon faction/other unit? Has there been an update since the open Alpha?

We most likely won't update the open Alpha. All updates are part of the closed Alpha and only available for a select few testers and press. Most of the new units, maps and levels will be available to everyone in the full game being released on Steam later this year. The neon faction will not be in the full game but we hope to release the old version to anyone who wants the faction.
