For a long time, i have watched the M.U.G.E.N Community grow slowly,
watching great characters, stages, songs, bosses, games, artwork, and more, being made, but never going farther then the community its made in.
It also makes me sad that the M.U.G.E.N community can't seem to attract newcomers, outside of purely content creators or veterans.
So much great content, but nobody has any reason to see M.U.G.E.N as a big part of the fighting game community,
and those that acknowledge M.U.G.E.N, see it as just "a fun and dumb game with a insignificant and non-serious fanbase."
There are many reasons that this stigma exists, but we cannot deny that one of the biggest reasons is because there isn't
A Universal Competitive M.U.G.E.N game.
I have seen barely any talk of this kinda M.U.G.E.N game, and i want to change that with this project.
This game will not have characters or stages that were created for this game,
neither will this have consistent game-play styles or characters.
In fact, it will be the EXACT OPPOSITE
This game will be made up entirely of random M.U.G.E.N characters and stages that vary in game play and style, and will show off as many parts of the M.U.G.E.N community as possible, and all of it will be made to be well balanced, and made for a competitive scene
I have been working on a good roster for 3 years now, and I currently have done,
A Diverse list of 194 characters
40 Stages from many games and creators
Minor balancing that can be done directly in the .def file
Obvious overpowered and underpowered characters have been nerfed and buffed directly from the .def file
A fully functional arcade mode with with an increasing difficulty curve
A possible 11 minibosses, 10 bosse, 3 super bosses, and ???????
Now, there are some things I need to do
Make sure all characters are fine tuned for a competitive experience
Get/Create an original menu and select screen so I can stop using the LEGACY pack
Possibly create a story, intro, and ending for each of the characters in arcade mode
