    I am not defensive, just surprised about the camp thing that I didn't detect while on the sketching phase.
    No team member detected this too, or maybe they just didn't dare to tell me :)

    @shadowgangs Ok, so you somehow don't see they look camp - fine, but they're completely out of proportion... how are you going to animate them?

    Animation will be done frame by frame, each frame completely hand drawn.
    No skeletal animation used.

    This will give the better results, but unfortunately also takes time.
    You can be sure we will release actual in game footage soon, surely in less than a month so you guys will have more idea about the game than static images.

    You can be sure the result will be good, I have tried and dropped many many artists and animators before settling on the best ones.

    In all seriousness, I'd camp the shit out of it. Moustaches, leather, muscles, the works...phew, getting sweaty now.

    I thought I'll give an update as it marks an important milestone.

    All the demo characters are mostly finished, and the work now is on making the game play good, fixing bugs and making the graphics/animations look better and fixing them.

    We'll also be starting now on the sound effects and music.

    Bellow are some in-game snaps. More new images on the gallery.
    (images are jpeg for size, quality is not the best).







    Hope you like it!

    You might want to not just flip the animation frames. His tattoo magically switches legs.

    the graphical style looks more like Amiga rather than the Capcom and Sega arcade machines.

    Where are the shadows? And the gangs?
  • Deleted user 28 October 2015 09:14:35
    Well, the gangs are in the shadows, and the shadows are a metaphor for the protagonists anus

    I mentioned this the last time you posted, the idea that you have drawn on 80's video games as inspiration is a bit of a stretch. What you have done going by the pics above is re-skinned Shinobi.

    He does say right in the opening post that shinobi is a main source of inspiration for it. It's not like it's a secret.

    I don't think he's taking the gay bicycle enthusiast idea seriously though but he has a vision i suppose.

    @Load_2.0
    Shinobi arcade is the main inspiration for a good reason, It still is one of the best arcade games ever created.

    But there are other new game mechanics that the pictures don't show, for example proximity melee chain combos which sets it apart from other side scrolling platforming fighters.

    There is other gameplay elements that don't belong to Shinobi, but to Bad dudes for example.

    With the kind of hand drawn animations we have, this won't happen, because it would mean creating left and right sprites for each frame.

    If the planned kickstarter is a success, the blue oyster club will be done as well of course as the whole game with 5 missions, 3 levels each, and a boss at the end of each mission.

    Can I pay for the game in pink pounds?
  • Deleted user 28 October 2015 16:15:02
    If it's a sort of tribute to dragon ninja maybe call it.

    Gay dudes vs slag and bingers

    On a more serious note best of luck with it and ignore idiots like me on here. This forum is unfortunately full of complete twats but I do feel at home.

    I haven't laughed this much since that thread about sticking your finger through the toilet paper when you're wiping your bum, and it penetrates... And you enjoy it.

    Don't know why but it reminds me of a time I had to have a camera inserted into my cock to check my bladder and then after that ordeal the doc flipped me over to check my prostrate. No idea why he used 4 fingers though. I left feeling abused.
