    It will PC first (best version, with shadows, shader effects, higher res, more colours, better in all areas).
    And 3 to 6 months later, a Dreamcast version. I have already the game running on the Dreamcast and this port will be done 100%.

    If the game is successful (Steam and Dreamcast versions), We'll be happy to port it to any capable device :). PS4, Xbone, Switch etc...
    Barcode Battler?

    Surely all console versions would look the same as the pc version? It's not Witcher 3 or crysis levels of visual fidelity is it.

    Yes, apart the Dreamcast.

    Lol did it come across as rude that? To be honest I am genuinely interested in this. Shinobi is an all time favourite of mine. They need to sort out a realistic Kickstarter this time and not ask for 2.3 million like last time.
    I'll throw a fiver at it.

    You could just play Shinobi though. This is just a camp reskin.

    Very true. Maybe it's the gayness that's attracting me. OMG have I just outed myself over a videogame? I'll be violently bumming lads at a pool party next.

    I need an intervention. Only Dan from Shadowgangs can save me now.

    I am happy that Shadow Gangs is now entering it's second phase, where the levels will be created, and I wanted to share this news with you!

    All the levels will be created from scratch, and by the same artist as the characters one, I am personally expecting some beautiful levels (which I will be designing myself).

    It will be an action exploration kind of game, with big large levels full of secrets etc.. A blend of Shinobi for action, Gods for levels size, puzzles and secrets and more heritage from other games 8bits and 16 bits ones etc...

    There will also be a story with many twists (one team member actually wrote a short one for Shadow Gangs), where Freddy and all characters will have something to tell :)

    The levels number and settings are discussed here:

    If anyone has any idea that he wants to see in the game, I am more than happy to hear.

    For example, I am planning to have posters of Obama and Trump in the first level (New York), with Obama saying "Yes, we can", "make America great again" right next to it from Trump :)

    In the end, there will be 15 normal levels, 5 boss levels, 1 first person perspective bonus stage (Shinobi arcade style), 3 side scrolling bonus stages (final fight style).

    That guy is RIPPED. I’d like to just gently run my fingers over his corded musculature.

    Also, why is the whole suit skintight except for the lower arms? That's very inconvenient, especially for a bright red, flat-footed ninja.
    Also, why would a ninja need an UZI?
    Oh, wait. Because enemies can see and hear him coming from miles away...

    Hello everyone;

    I wanted to share this with you.

    I have been waiting for this phase for a long time, and I have the first WIP of the New York level in progress :).

    I asked the front clouds to be redone, but apart from that, this is what I was looking for.

    It's definitely in my top 5 rectangles.

    Only real thing I could think of to improve it is they should be Jean shorts.

    If you were going for a New York that doesn't look like New York, then you've sure nailed it.

    I don't mind how much authentic or not it is to New York as long as it looks good.

    Like how you've aimed for a walk cycle that isn't quite authentic either.

    The ninja went through 3 walk anim fixes. The one shown here is the last one, It will not be enhanced or fixed, or this game will never be released.
