    Hi Everyone;

    The Shadow Gangs kickstarter is in it's final hours, and I would like to let anyone who is interested but hesitated for some reasons about
    the enhancements and changes that the full version will have:

    -If the graphic style is an issue, there will be filters available to add scanlines or any other full screen shader effects that are
    available already for emulators like Mame, Winuae etc...

    -Also concerning the graphics, all the characters will be drawn by the same artist who did Dan and the ninajs, this will ensure coherent
    art and of higher quality.

    -The animations frames will be double or tripled in some animation types (dying animation and others).

    -A lot of special effects will be added, some using shaders or with added shaders. Blood, bullet trails, better bullet effects, hit effets,
    smoke etc...these will make the screen busier.

    -If you didn't like the game because of lack of diversity, there will be a lot more interactions, Dan will have an inventory to store
    sepcial weapons and sepcial attacks (magic), there will be elements of search, recovering money, freeying all types of hostages, some
    elements of adventure/exploration too like using the ninja double jump to get to secret areas.

    -The ninja form will allow Dan to take one hit without dying (but will cause him to revert to his fighter form). Also the ninja form will be available at about 10 to 15% of the level start.
    This will put the difficult a lot down.

    -And many many more enhancements and fixes. A full list is in the Kickstarter page.


    I would like also to ask you to actually play the current demo, to get a real feel of the game and see it actually on your screen not just on videos.

    Bellow is the new Dan as ninja which is being done now by the sprite artist, and the first frames of the attack drone.

    Also, if the game succeeds the Kickstarter, all backers without exceptions will get regular milestone builds.

    Many thanks!

    Bump. The Kickstarter on this piece of shit is officially dead. My only question is: what exactly would the 28,000 pounds have gone towards?

    I wanted to share a WIP of Shadow Gangs, showing here boss Freddy.

    Still not polished, very buggy, no proper sounds or effects, and many sprites of Dan here will be changed (walk animation and anything which doesn't look good).
    Also Video quality is not great, I made it with an underpowered laptop.

    But I wanted to share with you this to show this game is progressing.

    Hope you like it!.

    Has anyone been following this project? When the Kickstarter initially launched, there wasn't that much "meat and potatoes" for me to bite and support the Kickstarter. But ever since the Kickstarter failed, the developer has continued to work on the game. And in all honesty, I like the overall look and feel of the game!

    I wonder what his/her plans are going forward? Only on steam or a possible physical release? The published has published two more videos featuring the game in action:

    Looks pretty damn good, though my initial complaint about the bland looking player character still stands. (and he needs more idle frames, he just stands there)

    These WIP videos give the game a sort of charming low-budget kuso feel - like a Data East game. I hope he finished it.

    I don't think there's any question that this game will be finished. He's incorporated some of the elements of the original Shinobi game and added his own unique twist. Although there are plans to release this game on Steam, I think he/she should really consider another Kickstarter campaign.

    Dan (the main character) has a new fighter look, the previous look I never was really convinced of, and most people didn't like it (some did, but most not).
    There will be idle frames, for all the game characters, enemies, bosses etc...

    Above is the stand idle anim for Dan fighter. Crouch will have it's idle too.

    I am thinking about a kickstarter, but near the development end when the beta version is done.
    This will be good to get help with the dev cost and get the game beta tested by backers, so we get a game that will be in the best possible shape.

    There will also be a Dreamcast version available some short time after the PC version.

    The new Shadow Gangs!

    I am very happy to share a beta video of a small take on the current state of the game.

    Still beta version.
    The game will be released by May 2020.

    Looking good. Looks really responsive.

    I remember backing the Dreamcast version on the original Kickstarter

    Thanks for the backing!

    It looks much better than in the video, and moves smoothly all the time.

    Something about the visual reprenstation makes me a little nostalgic for old arcade games like Narc. That's cool.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?
