Hello. I am Clayton Stetz, and will go under the moniker KamiiKoneko. For some background, Kamii Koneko is Bacon Samurai's spirit kitten sidekick, and can be seen at the end of the bacon samurai flash trailer acting as the replay button. In Bacon Samurai the game, he will be what enables Bacon to perform supernatural spellcasting-type attacks. In the story he will act as comic relief.
As for myself, I am taking on the lead role in developing this project. It is currently a two-man team, the very talented Wright Wrickman, creator of the Bacon Samurai universe, as the animator, and myself as the programmer. We both are looking forward to making a game that raises the bar and is fun to play while still filled with art and beauty that we can be proud of.
This post serves the dual purpose of introducing myself and of making it known that as we develop an action plan and get beyond the basic physics, we may be looking for volunteers to help animate, program and design, and our end goal is to maybe get this game out to a console (I'm thinking DS, for dozens of reasons). This is just like being in a rock band but with coding and sword fighting.
Here are some interesting features we have decided we will be implementing and I hope it's as exciting to you as it is to me:
- Platformer in the style of the Castlevania series
- Character skill/spell customization through leveling, equipment, and collection
- A weight system that affects your fighting style
- Unique use of an alchemy/ingredient item system
- Large number of attacks and skills
- Unique boss battles spanning multiple gaming genres
- Soundtrack by multiple production artists
This forum is open for ALL suggestions and offers for help. We will be posting questions here and publicly for algorithms and techniques. We are highly ambitious and have all the skills and plans set up, but we have much to learn and a strong desire to do so.
Thank you everyone, for reading and lending your support. Talk about the cartoon, and the game, and voice your thoughts, every single word will be considered and taken very seriously
