Household Game announced its first title, Way of the Passive Fist, coming to PS4 sometime in 2017. The developer also announced that the game will be playable for the first time at the PlayStation Experience 2016 this upcoming weekend.
Here’s an overview of the game by Founder & Director of Household Games Jason Canam (via the PlayStation.Blog)
In Way of the Passive Fist you play as The Wanderer, a mysterious figure of unknown origin who has mastered the art of the Passive Fist and fights enemies defensively to wear down even the mightiest of opponents. Unlike most arcade-style brawlers, The Wanderer doesn’t have a basic attack like a punch or a kick, instead you have an array of parries, deflections and dodges at your disposal. No button mashing here… keep your cool, study your enemies and survive in the wasteland.
The game’s setting is Planet Eiectus, a world ruled by its volatile and overwhelming sun. Everything on this world is solar powered, but the harsh conditions also make survival extremely difficult. Exhausting oneself is a death sentence. By mastering the Passive Fist technique, The Wanderer continues to endure in the face of desert raiders, mad scientists and fanatical sun worshippers.
Canam also affirmed in his blog post that the studio are working hard on making the game accessible to “as many people as possible”. Revealing they’re working with speedrunner and accessibility advocate Clint “Halfcoordinated” Lexa to help shape up many of the game’s controls, graphics, audio, and gameplay.

Way of the Passive Fist launches sometime in 2017 for the PS4.
