Hi everybody, About a year ago, I had an idea for a video game. I've made several prototypes, and I'm really proud of my most recent one, so I'd like to share it with you all. The game is a side-scrolling hack-and-slash game. Here's a screenshot, here's a 30-second gameplay video, and here's the 80-megabyte demo. Please check out the Read Me file for instructions on how to do air combos and stuff like that. All of the art assets (character models, animations, GUI, background music) are completely placeholder. I'll be replacing all of those temporary assets as soon as I can. I'm not satisfied with the combat yet, so I'll probably make a lot of adjustments to it. You are all more than welcome to give me feedback on how you think it can improve! Here's the current design of the main character. I was lucky enough to get Mariel to sketch my character, and then I paid an artist to color the sketch. The story of the game will be told in visual novel format. Here's a visual novel test that I did. This demo only features the "hack and slash" part of the game. When the main character is not killing people, she can play minigames on the video game console in her home, and do odd jobs around her city to earn money to buy new outfits. The game is heavily inspired by No More Heroes, as you might have guessed...but I'm not going to force the player to do annoying side-missions before they can do story missions. So far, I've spent hundreds of dollars paying dozens of artists to make concept art for this game, but I still need character designs, 3D character models, textures, animations, environment models, GUI art, sound effects, background music, and lots more. I'll keep chipping away at it until eventually it's finished... You are also welcome to ask me any questions you'd like about the gameplay, the story, and the characters!
