While working on Treachery in Beatdown City (a new beat 'em up), we at Nuchallenger dug deep into the history of brawlers and unearthed a rich, buried civilization of culture and design. Did you know that the first beat 'em up, which gave way to classics like Double Dragon, was based on the creator's frustration in high school? Join us on this fascinating audio/visual look at the history of both beat 'em ups and pop culture!
