Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

Be an archer with fiery arrows, a colorful painter, a martial arts master who can transform into a dragon, and more! Fantasy meets martial arts in this vibrant world.

—If You’re New To Fighting Games

Designed to work great on keyboard, no need for a special controller. We’ve streamlined the genre to get you to the fun decision-making part as soon as possible. All moves are just a single button press, combos are easy, move lists are concise. We’ve cut the chaff to focus on the heart of the genre so we can show you why fighting games are awesome.

—If You’re a Veteran

This game is designed by an ex-Street Fighter dev and hardcore player for play in tournaments. Mixups, rushdown, zoning, and the grapplers seeming too powerful on day one. It’s got all that. And you can play it with pretty much anyone in the fighting game community, no matter what other fighting game they play, because you can all reach basic competency in Fantasy Strike in minutes and start playing for real. Plus you can play with a joystick, gamepad, Guitar Hero controller, or whatever else you want.

Key Features

  • Excellent online play. Uses GGPO, the best-in-class networking technology any competent fighting game should use.
  • Game modes available now: play online quickmatch, directly challenge a friend, play local multiplayer, arcade, or try our full-featured practice mode. Several more modes are in the works.
  • Unique throw escape. To escape (normal) throws, simply let go of all your controls! You’ll automatically “yomi” counter any throw attempt.

    Life bar shows discrete hit points. You always know exactly how much a combo will do because life bars show each individual hit point.

  • Dragon.
