Fights in Tight Spaces, the deck-building turn-based melee brawler is now out on PC and Xbox

From Press Release:

Fights in Tight Spaces (by Bristol, UK devs Ground Shatter) will smash its way out of the confines of Early Access / Game Preview with a 1.0 launch today (6pm GMT / 10am PST) December 2nd, 2021) on PC (Steam, GoG, Epic Store), Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.
