CelesSteel

Post  retroguy on Thu Sep 14, 2017 7:54 pm

Hello once more, some may remember me talking about the heavily SOR inspired CelesSteel project a while back.

CelesSteel has come a long way since then, our debut comic has sadly run into a few delays, but we're still looking to release it before the years out, and we now have our official website at

www.celessteel.co.uk

Likewise the game is still in development, and we're hoping that the comic will stimulate further interest for when we're finally ready to release it.



Please do come check us out, and we'll continue to give our all to get this project off the ground :-)

Interesting characters. Some of them could be Shinobi bosses. lol

I had a look on the website and really like the designs, particularly the cover.

Oh yeah, any character/boss in particular? Sega ages titles like Golden Axe, SOR and Shinobi were huge influences on this game, hence my curiosity.

I'm glad you like the characters too, they were all designed to be quick and easy to engage with, trying to get that 80s feeling going where everything was clear and colourful.

Well, right off the bat, in your video thumbnail the middle guy has that insect samurai thing going on, and the Scorpion is quite like a Marvel character (and we all know about that infamous Spider-Man/Batman boss), so some definite similarities in there. Thumbs up

I always thought Samurai Kabutos looked cool, and felt that sort of style would work well for Kenyokai/Capricorn being a goat as they somewhat resemble horns. I see what you mean with the insect thing too, his sillouette was partly inspired by Boomer Kuwanga from Megaman X, who is apparently supposed to resemble a robot cockroach.




As for Zakhadar/Scorpio, he's not really based on Marvels Scorpion, it just made sense to have his tail in the same place, the he does share a similar habit of grabbing and binding enemies with his tail :-)

Yeah, I wasn't aware of a Marvel Scorpion, but the style and influence really comes through. I'm not a comic fan, but you have a good idea marketing a comic in conjunction with a game. Could serve as a teaser for the game, with maybe some screenshots on the last page.

It was our initial plan to use the comic as a promotional item, but rather like the game itself, its scope rapidly expanded as the characters continued to develop, and we now see it as a stand alone item in its own right. It's a beautifully drawn (by artist Chris Puglise), fast paced and exciting read, and we're very much looking forward to releasing it in the next few months, stay tuned!

Updated with a selection of enemies from the game. Some of these still need tweaking and tidying up for visual consistency, but we're pleased with them so far



The punk gang known as the 'Skavvs', from left to right:

Herr Gyro, Monsieur SpinAlot, Mister Twister, Sparky, Mischief, Burnz, Kitty, Skaggs, EmCee, Slugga, Trash, Luna, Shelby, Slick, Froz.T, 'The' Alpha Male, and Hijinx



The Cult of Nil, most evil of CelesSteels enemies, will be waiting for you in the final stage... They are:

Spoonface, Arrek, Mathiar, Reekor, Malik, Zealot, Judgement and Ghoom-Ghorr

That looks awesome! Really like the design, especially on the street in the top pic.

Thanks Ice, we're going to be continually editting and tweaking the graphics as we go for consistency, but overall we're very pleased with how it's coming along, especially the badguy designs, who we wanted to be just as distinctive and filled with personality as the player characters.

We're gonna be working hard next year to try and increase CelesSteels online profile, and will be adding more test videos, animations and music to the Retrolution games Youtube channel as we gradually develop the game, here's a sample of the float system, featuring playable character Tregas (yes some of these fx are taken from SOR, they're just place holders for the time being).



With the comic finally due to launch early next year, we'll also be placing a much greater emphasis on the pursuit of additional crowd funding to help us get the project off the ground. Please help us to do this by sharing this link, and and pledges are much appreciated!

https://www.patreon.com/retroguy

For the time being we're offering posters as rewards (as well as free copy of the debut comic if we can reach our $200 monthly target), and we look forward to increasing this with additional merc if we can gradually build up our funding.


Thanks in advance folks!

Happy 2018 folks!

This video tests more animations, this time for a couple of meter burning Super Combos with Matisya. Powerful and elaborate moves like this won't always be necessary against regular foes like Hijinx in the video, but are well used against more dangerous, durable enemies and bosses. The sfx are temporary again, but the background sample is an original taken from the game in development.
