If you want to improve on the original can you make it fun to actually play :P .

Sonica 02 August 2011 18:50

Well.. heh, I can add things like lives, continues or whatever, but the game is as it is. A challenge. I guess with continues, it'd be more fun as you can try to work it out more within one go, but meh.

Secondly, extra animations add to the fun factors for some people, and this remake will definitely support that.

It's more about the dull enemy waves/Boss fights. Maybe a brand new SotB game would be the real challenge. :)

I can easily fix that. I understand about all this, and I intend to make the boss fights much more.. fun and dramatic, especially the final boss.

As for ordinary enemies, adding new enemies will do that some good.

I'd rather not make a new beast game, as they kinda went in the wrong direction to me.

This looks very promising, good luck with your project.

Look really promising, good luck :-) I hope it will get finished someday :-)

Your pictures look fantastic, I love how you've kept them as close as you did to the original design.

wanderer 02 August 2011 21:37

What a nice project! I hope you manage to keep it close to the original. What's on your mind about the music? Do you think it'd be worthwhile to ask permission to use the remixed tracks found in the first Amiga Immortal CD? Or do you prefer an original score?

Sonica 02 August 2011 21:40

It'd be nice for someone to redo the tunes with modern... cleaness. I can't really discribe it, but I guess someone could make the music 'HD' aswell.

wanderer 02 August 2011 21:50

I see what you mean, but I guess it's not an easy task. You'd need someone really experienced, this music is classic... However I believe those remixes from 1999 are really good, and extremely faithful to the original (the contrary is usually the problem with remixes). They sound like "enhanced" versions (the Immortal ones) - maybe even "HD"! ;)

Paul_s 03 August 2011 10:03

Why not use 'Metallic Rain'. It's faithful to the original and from the same era ;)

You just need to e-mail Vangelis and ask nice if you can sample it.

deicidal 03 August 2011 10:09

Must say the graphics are looking really nice

BrooksterMax 03 August 2011 10:55

I am rubbish at art and programming but know that the artwork you have produced looks amazing and very faithful to the great game. Good luck with it all.

Sonica 03 August 2011 15:17

Good point Brookser, I might need someone to program an engine, I can try myself, but all those moves and animations... I dunno.

Anyway, for the heck of it, frame 1 of walk done:

Best man for the job would almost certainly be Dj.Thunder who made the Thalion Lionheart remake.

I imagine you might need to do him a favour in return (like update the Lionheart gfx for him?)

Sonica 03 August 2011 20:24

Bah, I can't devote any more time to anything else... I guess I'll probably use the original track. I mean, there's nothing wrong with it is there?

Bastich 03 August 2011 21:10

This looks great :)
Looking forward to watching the progress.
The graphics you have are very well drawn :great

Do you mean SFX and Music - I have the Sega Mega CD version of Beast 2 if that would help :) as a shortcut which has audio tracks that could be ripped but might not be as faithful to the Amiga classic.
