My brother and I are a team known as Artiknappa
(not founded yet, so follow me on twitter for updates! ,https://twitter.com/benjaminzeozen) 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!
