Ok, this might be old news to some of you out there, but it's pretty fresh to me and I wanted to bring it to the surface it in case anyone else has missed it. So, with that being said, check out this video:
 
 

  
 
As little as I know about it, it looks like it's being submitted for Microsoft's Dream-Build-Play Challenge. If so, I hope this makes its way to XBL in the near future, even though furries with swords might not be my favorite thing in the world, this game certainly looks beautiful, much in the style of Odin's Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade. You can find out more about the project from http://www.noogy.com, which also makes it look like an animated feature is in the works. I would love to know more, but for now, I've got to finish TANG!
 
Thanks to Mr. Gallup for sending this my way.

I hate myself for liking this.
 
Especially with the tagline "Full of Mystery and Danger"

Furrie animals killing other furrie animals. Meh, I'll pass.
#7 Posted by chililili (1328 posts) -

So, pretty looking Devil May Cry-ish furry's wet dream samurai game. Perfectly understandable.

#8 Posted by SenatorSpacer (432 posts) -

I saw this a while ago, and I'm still pretty interested in it.

#9 Posted by Bartman3010 (443 posts) -

Oh hey, its from the animator of the introduction to the PC classic, Jazz Jackrabbit 2; Dean Dodrill. This was in the works for like...years. Didnt know it was going to be turned into a game though.
 
Its not going to be backed by Epic Games, but a fan of the green hare should give this game a look.

I think the proper term is anthropomorphic, not "furrie" (sic).
#11 Posted by Dr_Feelgood38 (1550 posts) -

This looks pretty cool!I The combo system doesn't look too fleshed out, I hope it's just a tease.

#12 Posted by VisariLoyalist (2990 posts) -

it kind of just looks like advanced flash or something

#13 Posted by Mordi (553 posts) -

The running animation for the main character is just not right. Look at it!

#14 Posted by ghostNPC (761 posts) -

We'll just see how repetitive the gameplay gets.

#15 Posted by skrutop (3615 posts) -

It's really hard to judge from the trailer, but it looks like it could get very repetitive.  It's certainly beautiful, though.

A pretty game about furries is still a game about furries.

#17 Posted by Eder (393 posts) -

THIS LOOKS AWESOME!!! HOPE IT COMES OUT!!!

#18 Posted by Bucketdeth (8004 posts) -

This looks awesome, I hope it makes it way to the PSN.
#19 Posted by Osphere (207 posts) -

Nice art indeed

Flavored dirt!

#22 Posted by Cincaid (2953 posts) -

Oh lord, I need this

#23 Posted by Einherjan (582 posts) -

Should be called Furry Fantasy.

#24 Posted by mattysen (822 posts) -

Looks friggin sweet

#25 Posted by AndrewB (7491 posts) -

I was going to say "in b4 furry hatred" but damned if I'm not way too late. Just because something has anthropomorphic characters in it makes it immediately susceptible to internet fur-phobes. Didn't any of you read Redwall or watch the Secret of Nimh as kids?
 
Anyway, the game looks pretty awesome from a graphical standpoint. I'm just not sure if the seemingly hack and slash side-scroller gameplay is going to be enough for me, but I'll obviously reserve judgment until I see more of the game.

#26 Posted by Bartman3010 (443 posts) -

Maybe if this came out years ago, people wouldnt see it as "Furrys with swords." Sad to say, but true...
 
But again, Dean worked on the intro to Jazz Jackrabbit 2. If you look at the movie stills on Dean's site, looks kinda similar, doesnt it?

Listen, uh. I think you should probably go. I mean, it's been cool and everything, it's just that I have work in the morning and uh. Yeah. Just leave. I'll move my car if it's in the way.
#28 Posted by Sanj (2352 posts) -

Holy flip, this looks beautiful. Too bad i'll never get to see it on the PSN.

I was qouting vinny on "furrie."
#30 Posted by Metroid545 (1823 posts) -

looks like one of those weird GBA platformers with improved gameplay and graphics.

#31 Edited by animateria (3252 posts) -

I thought the art style, mostly the illustrations, looked like some Japanese anime reject.
 
Title screen had it in Korean.

Not surprised.

That's my main impression of the video, yes. The art is cool, but that run loop is all wrong.
#33 Edited by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

WORST. RUNNING. ANIMATION. EVER. DIE. Also furries.

#34 Posted by Domstercool (102 posts) -

Looks fantastic, it really does. I'm up for buying this if it gets a release

#35 Posted by ahoodedfigure (4238 posts) -

Make new friends...  or run past them.
 
Looks pretty, but in the end it's a brawler, right?  I'm interested in learning what distinguish it from other brawlers, I guess.

#36 Posted by cyrax (205 posts) -

Fuck yeah, that looked great.

#37 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11477 posts) -

So it's Odin Sphere but with Furries? Pass.

#38 Edited by Linkyshinks (9881 posts) -

It looks sweet, very Muramasa like in twitch gameplay.

#39 Posted by RJPelonia (853 posts) -

Looks fun. Beautiful artwork too.

#40 Posted by crusader8463 (14412 posts) -

Not a fan of the furry character design, or this type of gameplay as i find it gets old fast for my tastes. But i love to see a game that has such beautifully drawn animations. I like the 2D look and when its all done snazzy like with what we can do today with our tech it blows my mind how smooth it looks.

#41 Posted by Jeust (10477 posts) -

I want it :p

#42 Posted by Godlovesugly (276 posts) -

#43 Posted by GeekyrBossMan (6 posts) -

WOW!  This looks awesome!  I would totally pay some MS Spacebucks for this!

#44 Posted by FlipperDesert (2081 posts) -

As long as there's no yiffing it looks okay so far. Possibly hard, but okay.

#45 Edited by Eelcire (367 posts) -

Great visual style and action; looks fun as well! Good luck on the Dream Build Play :)
#46 Posted by Axelhander (159 posts) -

This game actually looks fun to play, unlike Odin Sphere, which was very pretty garbage.

#47 Posted by phatcat (149 posts) -

Man, I hope furry fetishists don't ruin this.

Spoiler alert:
I managed to work in Klonoa, Tails, and that girl fox from StarFox.
 
 
I mean they. Whoever they are. Those sickos.
