I'm finally putting in work to develop an original Mugen fullgame I've had in my head for the longest time. You can see the current progress in the video above.

Battle Craze is my tribute to the fighting game genre, in a world much like ours. The Battle Craze Tournament Series, one of the most prolific martial arts tournaments in the world, starts yet again, and one man, Ajit Sinha, is destined to win it all, not for the fame, but from his prediction that the world will enter an era of bloodshed then and there. Not only this, but the competition is fierce, with everyone holding onto their dreams dearly, or simply there to ruin the fun. Whatever the case, no one will back down, with their only option to duke it out.

You can read up on individual character movelists here, as well as their biographies. If you don't feel like visiting, you can view a shorthand introduction for the planned cast below.

Currently, our team is small, but still putting out a great effort to continue this project. Our team currently is comprised of...

JanisLCV (Me!) - Concepts, character sprites, stage sprites

DrKelexo - Code, concept critique

Meldo - Screenpack code, FX sprites

Sympolite - Music

TTTTTsd - Play-Testing

ImportantBusinessDinosaur - Character sprites

We have a few people on deck for character voices. Our announcer has also been decided. We would be interested in finding other people to help with sprites, voices, sound effects, or whatever your talent may be. Hopefully we can work together to finish this project and see it truly blossom.

I'm giving my voice talents to this project, and helping with anything else the team needs!

Be sure to check this out if you can, y'all, it's honestly turning out to be something really fun!

Updated the first post with more in-game screenshots and character animations. Due note Tsugumi is still an early WIP and is still being sprited.

Awesome you got around to posting about it here :)

Having seen you work on this for a long time it's cool that awareness is getting around.  It's getting pretty great and the final result is going to be one to watch out for.

All of Tsugumi's standing basics are done.


At a certain point I'm going to update the first post with a shorthand blurb for the roster for convenience's sake.

Thanks! I'm glad I piqued your interests.


All of Tsugumi's crouching normals are sprited.


In terms of other developments in the project, I've just about completed an entire list of voice lines for the cast planned. The only thing its missing is special interactions, but I was thinking those could be sprited, coded and voiced once we get everyone complete.

Edit: First post updated with short hand introductions to the cast.

OH! It's good that you brought that up since I don't remember if I specified it in the VOD or not, but I plan to have a public beta posted once the first 6 characters are complete (Ajit, Tsugumi, Sherm, Wallace, Reaper, la justicia)

Currently I'd consider this an alpha, so for now, testing is behind closed doors to me and the rest of the team.

Interesting.
I'm curious to know if you use references to "trace over" for the moves or do it from scratch.
Do you animate with photoshop to have such a good result?

Some things I did draw over and use reference, those being Ajit's walking, running and directional jumps, and for Tsugumi, her idle and walking animations. The rest is from scratch.

I don't use Photoshop to do this. I use a program called Aseprite, which has very good features for spriting and animating. It's also like, 15 USD.

Due to the way we coded the lifebars and other things in common1, I don't think these characters will be available for individual release. Also their scale is kinda shorter than the standard, which is kinda iffy.

For the second point, if you are talking about the sprites done, I've done all the character sprites up to this point.

Yeah, everything started off of KFM, given the leftover audio that's gonna get replaced at some point. For the upcoming characters, we'll build off of Ajit and so on and so forth. KFM, while being an invaluable base for starting off Mugen code, he himself is pretty dated in terms of code and frame data.

Aseprite you can find on Steam.

Current progress vid courtesy of DrKelexo. AI and announcer implementation are the main updates here.

Ajit is essentially done at this point, outside of voicework and general sounds. Gonna continue crackin' on Tsugumi's sprites.

UPDATE:

Tsugumi air normals done.

The sprites and animations are coming along nicely! I am liking how fluid it is overall.

I also like the announcer's performance from the progress video in your previous post.
