Whoa. Nice job guys, seriously! Good luck with the rest of...well...whatever needs to be done! I hope this game will make it out there (a good chance, from the looks of it!)
If I can convince my parents to pay for this I'm definitely going to play the heck out of it. :D

@Nixel Thanks! Well if I was happy with just a platformer, we'd probably be closer to done. But I've gone and added in a side scrolling shooter section :O

In single player or co-op you take to the back of an undead dragon and fly through an onslaught of flying undead and other nasty bastards :D Complete with giant gross bosses at the end of each shooter stage (3 in all). I couldn't handle just having the straight out platforming no matter how much we added to it. So I accidentally started on the shooter section last week around Xmas :)

Also redrawn boss 2-2. The second stage boss fights now take place on the back of a wagon that has hostages on it. Driven by a possessed woodsman who immediately attacks you, you battle as the scenery flies by. Upon defeating him the true boss appears. His name is Fester. The closest way to describe him would be to say a really ugly hairy fart sack that resembles Slimer from Ghostbusters in mostly color alone. He pukes souls at you.

So yeah, tons of new art and stage stuff :) I'll post pics and vids soon :) Still a bit busy around here being New Years etc :)

And thanks for all the support through the Kickstarter!!!

Insanity's Blade the "Arcade" Experience?

A full 16-bit/arcade styled graphic update from the games original 8-bit graphics. And then some!

You read that right! I put about 18+ hours into updating the graphics in the demo (separate set of working files) over the weekend and updated all of the graphics to full color in the game. So technically it's no longer the 8-bit experience if we go down this route.

So before I pull the trigger, I wanted to show you all a video of the game in full color. Also I have made other changes along the way that were part of the 8-bit update as well. The main character has a new upper body animation for walking. No one liked my super Robocop pose ;) So I caved and changed it. Title screen is now animated - this is my favorite new update! End of first stage house is partially rebuilt as well as a bit of the underground to make it a bit easier for co-op. Tweaked camera here too. Intro bits have subtle animations in them. And I can't remember what else I have done. It basically looks like a new game!

The gameplay itself will remain the same as well as the music and sound. Only the graphics would be changing.

The reason behind this update mostly because we wanted to bring you a better experience - and with the limited 8-bit NES palette there was a lot of color blending going on between the action and the background. This not only fixes that issue but also brings a new level of excitement and playability to the game!

I will be posting a demo later today of the "arcade version" for those who want to see it running on their machines.

This update is not the beta update that we've been working on with the shooter stage/cart boss fight etc. If the new graphic update gets a yes votes then I will have to recolor everything I've done since the Kickstarter ended - will take a few days :)

Anyhow enjoy the video and I look forward to your feedback and votes. I will check the votes as of Friday Dec 10th at 12am my time and let everyone know which direction the graphics will go in!

Here is the Video:

From Chris' update on Kickstarter: Stage 2 bosses are complete! They've actually been done for about a week I just haven't had time to make a video as I've been plugging away at stage 3 as well - which is also almost complete. Stage 3 had to be completely redesigned and redrawn as it was far too long and not co-op friendly.

Here is a video of the 2nd boss fight titled "Two Bosses, One Cart." as well as a few screen grabs of stage 3!

Enjoy!

I would say go for the full color. It was already kind of far away from the capability of NES. Also is't that in the boss something mod7 stuff

But since I'm not a Kickstarter backer I don't know if I have any word for this. Only voted on Greenlight.

This game has always looked crazy cool and I'm glad you got funded!

I'm a little torn here now seeing this moving away from it's inital 8-bit style. Honestly I feel it looked more authentic before. Some parts of the backgrounds seem like regular drawings of some sort now and don't mix well with the pixel sprites. But I might be overly sensitive to these kind of things.

What also concerns me is that the game was described as "The Ultimate 8-bit Experience" on Kickstarter, which it certainly cannot be anymore. Yet it got funded on account of this. Some backers might feel mislead.

Still I wish you great success with this title of course! The new boss video looks great and I will surely be playing the full game.PixelRebirth2014-01-22 10:09:21
