A fresh new year with a fresh new prototype, things are starting well!
I wanted to make a 2D Beat 'em Up style game like the Streets of Rage and Dragons Crown, but with the combat mechanics you'd find in modern day fighting games like Guilty Gear and Marvel vs Capcom. I also drew a little from Devil May Cry in that you have a Style Gauge (top left). The more varied your moves, the higher your Style Rank goes and the more damage you do (though the dummies are invincible). I realize that the mashup of these two genres could lead to it being a hyper niche game, but these are the types of game I want to make, so my fate is sealed
The purpose of this prototype is to test whether the combat on its own is fun, as it would be the core component of the game. So please have a go, whack out some combos and let me know what you think.
The game has keyboard and controller support, so just press "Enter" on the keyboard, or "Start" on the controller to start using them. Shout out to Mexicanopiumdog for providing me with some sound effects so you don't have to play in silence
