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!.

Looking good Jack

For me Freddy has the feeling of the first boss in Shinobi

Thanks Damien, yes he does.
The first Shinobi boss had always a special place in mind, and especially his fire attacks which I like a lot.

Hi everyone;

Some good news about Shadow Gangs, the first phase of characters creation is nearly finished.

All of the characters and bosses are done. With this phase finished there will be a new fix phase to revamp the main character, and the next big phase which I have been waiting for for a long time, the levels.

There is more info on the website, on which I put 2 new sections with the full minions and bosses list.

Looks very nice so far!

edit:

Freddy boss, obviously inspired by Freddie Mercury. How did that come about? I mean, considering Freddie's persona for big fire-throwing boss?

Thank you.

Freddy was a suggestion that came from a long thread I opened on the Eurogamer website.

It developed from the way Dan is dressing, which many thought of him to be gay and it went from there, to involve Freddy, and at one time Elton John as boss too, etc...

I was planning not to make any more new music public, but this one is so good it there is more reasons to publish it now than to keep it away for another year while the game is getting done.

You can listen to it here:

Hello I have been constantly focusing on the development of this game,I would like to offer some advice to you.

I must say that I prefer the original shape of Dan, he looks more distinctive and unlike any other game characters.
He is a new Hero!


But New Dan's shape is like Billy Lee in Double Dragon.


I told my friend mentioned this game and gave him a look at the shape of the new Dan.

He responded to me: Double dragon to release a new game? This is Billy Lee's new shape?

I think this is a problem, the protagonist of this game should not be too similar to the protagonist of other games.

Your goal should be to do a new game, a unique story, a unique character. right?

I think the original shape of the Dan is very good, just some of the changes.
Maybe modify the character's lines, action or posture or slightly modify his coat to make him more like a fighter ,maybe he does not need wear a coat and add some protective gear like elbow guard,ankle guard etc.

Like boxer or UFC Fighter,Would anyone think they were GAY?

So I suggest a slight modification of the original Dan's shape on it.

If some people think that the new Dan shape is also good, you can also put this style in the game, maybe you can design the characters in the selection of the screen can choose the basic character style or double dragon style.

I am happy you like this game, and Dan .

Many people weren't happy with loosing the old Dan look, including me!.

The old Dan look will be available, either at launch or later as a DLC, also a selection screen.

The new look guy now name is: Mike, I'll make things clearer in the next Shadow Gangs website update.

The plan will be to add COOP play at some later stage as DLC.

I already replied to someone about the issue of old Dan and If you want, you can join our discussion here at:

You should drop the previous sprite with beach clothes, is not suitable for this kind of games. Use ninja, some black outfit would be badass and no gun (or only for short time). There is potential.

But some people like it.
I do like it too and having a choice between either Mike or Dan will satisfy every one.

They will both transform to a ninja, about gun I like how it looks and plays once in ninja hands.
It may be weird (fighter with shuirken, and ninja with gun), but it plays well.

I looked at your forum, this person's suggestion is very good, I also hope that Dan's style can be more like a UFC fighter.

You can put a modified Dan style draft on the site, and if I have any ideas, I will continue to provide you with suggestion.
