    [game] panchi

    Hi everyone!

    My brother and I are a team known as Artiknappa
    (not founded yet, so follow me on twitter for updates! , and we're currently working on our debut title: PANCHI!

    At the moment we have a working prototype with one gamemode. But wait, you ask, what kinda game is it?

    For release, we are aiming to create a tight and fun multiplayer game with multiple gamemodes reminiscent of those one might find in a childrens playground. To name a few examples: King of the Hill, Tag, Footrace, Ballgames, Defend a fort, etc.
    The one gamemode that we have and are using as a basis for gameplay is a free-for-all, battle royale. This is already pretty fun, but unfortunately there's no online yet, and we will probably focus on adding singleplayer/coop instead of online.


    The core gameplay involves acrobatic feats such as doublejumping and walljumping, but the real meat is in the kicks (the bread-and-butter for comboing) and the finishing move: the panch, and the blockb which reverses the panch! Whenever you hit someone with either, your character grows stronger up to level 3, at which point the blast is gonna send your opponent into orbit!

    Hot ****, that art style really set you up for a game that is a lot less intense than it actually is. I love it! Especially the sound design. Great work!!
    Check out our game Arcus!


      Eyy, thanks a lot! The art style is still evolving, the goal is having it be quite obviously 3D, but *feel* the same as 2D. There's still a winding road ahead of us before release so keep an eye out!

      PS: I followed you on twitter steven, to make sure I'll stay up to date with your project!

        A little update on our progress:

        It's now possible to play 1v1 on the same keyboard, and we're working on ui options for keybinds and mixing keyboard and gamepad players.
        We've rethought how auras and attack fx will work and are working on completing the 4 sets that will be in the full game, they will be Fire, Energy, Lightning and Dark, and will also be tied to pairs of opposite-colored characters.

        There is a sneakpeek on the new lightning aura on Twitter

        Stay tuned for more, or if you want to talk to us directly or maybe get your hands on a playable build come hang out in Discord!

          Joking aside, it's not always sharable what is going on in development..
          I am currently working on overhauling the VFX in the game, because the old ones were visually unclear and a performance nightmare.. Here's a preview of some new auras!

          They are still WIP, but it's getting somewhere. All the other VFX are getting a similar overhaul.

            Just necroed this thread and gonna update it again. There was a 1 year hiatus where we experimented with other games before returning to finish this! We just received two awards in the Norwegian Game Awards! Stay tuned here or twitter or join discord for chat, updates and sneak peeks!
