My new idea is Shinobi!

Post by zman » Sun Jul 01, 2007 9:05 pm

I would like to see someone build a Shinobi game using the latest BOR engine. Just like the streets of Rage games. I am in the mood for a good Shinobi game on the Dreamcast. I on the other hand lack the skills and time to do so.

You mean a Shinobi-like platformer or a Shinobi-themed beat em up?

You'll probably like this: http://www.lavalit.com/forum/index.php?topic=35.0

It's using the latest OpenBoR incl. scripting, but it's still more or less a brawler. However, once released you could use it as a base to create a platformer in no time.

Man, it looks horrible... probably going to play well.

Yeah, that's it. As long as you can throw ninja stars I'm happy. Thanks for the link. I look forward to a demo to try.

According to Damon Caskey, the author, a demo will be released soon. OpenBoR does support (real) 2D stages (as in Battletoads) as well as platforms, so a Shinobi clone should be very possible :)
