It never hurts to see more run 'n' gun games these days. Looks pretty good so far! Wish the team good luck on the project 👍

I think this is really cool and what appears to be a neat passion project. Homebrew projects are always rad - but the second you try to make this a big physical expensive release type of thing, you will get so much hate rained upon you.

^I appreciate the 3 and 4 credits displayed at the bottom of the screen. It shows the game follows AES conventions.

Yeah, with flash carts, Mister and so many other options, it's easy to do an innocent homebrew release now, as opposed to a physical preorder shitshow.

Thanks for the kind feedback guys :cheers:

Sure the game will have all the bios / dipswitch gimmicks - except Japanese language probably, but you never know.

Regarding the release I think we'll have the usual array covered too, from the guys ready to pay a mint for a shiny box they will never open, to those who will make money out of our work in every possible way. :drool:
We won't say too much out of superstition, but yeah there are some preorder-related pitfalls we'd rather stay off. But I know you'll all be watching and giving us feedback on that too ;)

Why is this in News & Rumours? This isn't SNK this is homebrew jank and we have a home for that (sadly still on these forums and not hidden away somewhere in the recesses of the dark web where it fucking belongs).

Homebrew for an SNK console. So it's SNK-adjacent. Use your discretion I suppose.

I think this looks badass. Also there is a dude named max 3.30 with a mohawk in it. Instant purchase. 🤣
I do agree that slightly larger sprites would be better, but im a know nothing shit for brains when it comes to game dev so i have no idea whether that would require completely scrapping the original art you have and if so, of course that isnt feasible.

Yeah you guessed it right, we'd have to put nearly everything to the bin; the game would certainly play differently too.
On the plus side, it'll be easier to have things going on on screen at a decent and steady framerate. :)

This looks great. I'm keen to find out what the ETA is for placing an order for an AES Cart and what sort of price it'll be. I haven't bought any homebrew carts yet and this might be my first. (y)

Thanks @tomlee80 !:beer:

It's too early yet to say anything about ordering & pricing - we don't even know if we'll be partnering with a publisher or not.
We're pretty confident though that the development will be completed this year, and we won't be starting any preorder thing before it is. ;)
