EDIT: This oddly reminds me off Popeye

Awesome

This looked interesting to me from the preview stuff they did on it, good to see something to keep it on my radar.

The animation from this game looks amazing. Everything looks so fluid.

Liking the gameplay, the art not so much.

Lol Clouds sword and Sol Badguys sword making cameos.

Nice.

@Dilenger93: yea me too, she looks like Olive Oyl. I'm sort of starting to like this game more, I kind of hated it's art design but I'm warming up to it :D.

So they're up to 3 characters now? yay.

Everything about this game is looking great, its just a bummer that the art style is going to turn away so many people.

hit counter too center screen

It really is a twisted Disney cartoon character.

I'd like the style of this game a lot more if the whole game was done in Peacock's style. 
 
...also, Peacock is a boy's name. Female "peacocks" are called peahens, but whatever.

I still find the art style in this game really unappealing.

peacock reminds me of someone from that one tv show about a lot of small kids that fought evil from their crazy tree house or whatever...

That's some sweet music

I think the artstyle for this is intriguing..creepy and wierd also but definetly pretty cool. Makes me a little schizo. in my assessment of it. And of course the overarching theme of gurls beating on each other with an ocassional boob or butt shot... Okay.

#18 Posted by Ravidrath (45 posts) -

@1momosauky: Yeah, we're aware of that problem and working on it now. The whole combo counter will be made more compact and moved up.

So basically BB Hood stole Carl Clover's hat?

My two preferred fighters are BlazBlue and MvC and my suggestion is to make the screen explode more.

Love the art style, can't wait to see more of this game.

#21 Posted by Dan_CiTi (3906 posts) -

I can't wait for this game, the animation and art are so good. 

#22 Posted by darkvare (813 posts) -

she looks like a mix of fifties mickey and bb hood

#23 Posted by captainanderson (263 posts) -

It'll be interesting to see how an indie developed fighting game turns out. I dig the artstyle, but the gameplay looks a little too similar to Guilty Gear/BlazBlue for me to get excited about this.

#24 Posted by ArbitraryWater (12734 posts) -

The game itself looks perfectly fine. The art style still kills it for me though.

#25 Edited by ghostNPC (803 posts) -

I hate fake/western-anime style art.  It's just so noticeable and makes the entire product seem like a budget game.

#26 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19818 posts) -

The animation for this game is awesome. The artstyle, however, is not.

#27 Posted by Sooty (8195 posts) -

this looks so poor and will be unplayed after it has been out for a few weeks.

#28 Posted by 1momosauky (248 posts) -

@Ravidrath: other than that the game looks great keep it up

Its obvious that the dev's are extremely passionate about this project and have sacrificed a lot to make it a reality. But realistically, the majority of people that are going to buy this game are going to do it for the art style only (and I'm sure many that don't buy it will do so because of its "bad graphics.") The gameplay, to me at least, looks like a stereotypical Japanese-made fighting game, which can be extremely hard to get in to (Soul Caliber 4 anyone?) Also, there is something about the art style that seems sort of... off, or generic to me. Its hard to put to words, but I think some of you know what I am talking about. 
 
TL:DR: I think this game is going to flop, despite the best efforts of the dev team.

I worry that no one will play this game a week after release. I see all these beautifully designed characters in a new fighting game IP with a unique art style but kind of longevity can I expect?

#31 Posted by SatelliteOfLove (1379 posts) -

This is the only character design in this game that doesn't look like a Deviantart doodle.

#32 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2454 posts) -

She looks like an evil, female version of Mickey Mouse.

This.

It's really a shame, because this seems like Darkstalkers 3.5

You say that like it's a bad thing.

Well... It's not an immediately great thing...

This art style is going to make me buy a game that I will never play because I suck at fighting games but I have to support the artists on this.

#38 Posted by ch3burashka (5537 posts) -

Holy shit, that's some straight-up Steamboat Willy Mickey Mouse stuff right there! That's amazing - bring it back I say!

#39 Posted by Kjellm87 (1735 posts) -

Holy shit, that is some great music.
