So...it's been a long time since I posted any progress, but I have been working quite a bit on the game:


I got a new enemy type in the game, the beginnings of a combo system, and a life bar for the player. Up next, I want to get weapons working, something that I've been putting off for awhile, but that I really want to have in the game.

After looking at the new Xbox live community games, I'm thinking that I may try to develop Fists of Justice to be a LIVE Community Game. I think it would be a great Community game, and I think it would do well. The only problems then come with music and sound effects, because if I sell the game I can't use the music that I was planning to. I guess that I could try and make my own music for the game. If it doesn't turn out to be good, it will at least sound...interesting[grin]

Looking pretty awesome!

The only comment I'd make is that the drop-shadows don't really seem to match with the rest of the art-style. Maybe they should have blocky edges or something?

There are plenty of organizations out there and websites dedicated to giving away music and sound effects. Check out this one http://www.openmusicarchive.org/ . It's not the one I was thinking of but I can't find the url for it. Oh, wait, here it is http://www.freesound.org/


Thanks! I'll give those sites a look, hopefully there's some good fighting sound effects I can use.

My biggest concerns with developing this game (or future games for that matter) as community games are sound and music, because I really don't want to have to learn how to make my own music. Graphic-wise, the sprites I draw are not great, but they match the cartoonish/retro style I'm going for, so I don't mind drawing them. I was hoping to use some music from the Newgrounds Audio Portal (like Castle Crashers), but they have a non-commercial license.

Thanks!

That's a good point about the shadows, they should be more pixelated.
