Let the black lightning strike!
Hi everyone! After about one year of work, I've released the alpha version of my 3D - fighting game Schwarzerblitz! The name means "Black Lightning" in German and it's tied to the (in-development) storyline. The game has been developed in Visual C++ and based on the Irrlicht graphic engine.
The alpha release features 6 playable characters, 9 stages, Arcade Mode and Free Match mode. The game is currently in-development, so every comment and feedback would be really nice!
The game system is based on 4 buttons (Punch, Kick, Tech, and Guard) plus a special action called "Trigger". By pressing the Trigger button together with a normal move, the attack becomes guard-breaking and the time is slowed down, allowing the performer to chain longer combos. Triggers can be also used together with the guard to break an ongoing combo, thus working as a defensive manoeuvre. Each trigger action consumes a bullet counter. Every character starts a match with 6 bullet counters, which are partially replenished at the beginning of every new round.
But enough with talking, let's show you some gameplay!
That's all for the presentation post! If you want to know more details about it, just frop by at my game's page ;)
Thank you very much for the attention!
