    So the developers of the UFE engine are pushing out an update within a month from now; which will include networked multiplayer. I'm gonna do my best to implement that and get it up and running in the next version of Immortal Fray. It's exciting to me cause I've never tried messing with networking code as of yet. I've only been able to script up simple games locally so I feel like this will help me evolve in my training as a programmer.

    Hey thanks for trying it out! Right now Im revising the game based off of the feedback I've been getting. Im trying to prepare everything for the next iteration and new features. I'm also planning out my finished art pipeline. Anyways, short answer is yes. I plan to sell the game eventually.

    Vote at the link below!

    strawpoll.me/4238693

    So Ive finished the first draft concept for captain hook.
    • A - Young James - Inspired by Once Upon A Time
    • B - Vega Mask James - Inspired by Vega from Street Fighter
    • C - Evil Sea Captain James - Inspired by Moby Dick
    • D - Jolly Clown James - I always thought evil clowns were cool
    • E - Userper James - Inspired by Cervantes from Soul Calibur
    • F - Powerful Sorcerer James - Inspired by Ganondorf from the Legend of Zelda
    • G - Oni James - Original Creation
    • H - Intergalactic Sorcerer James - Inspired by Dragonball Z

    I would love for all of you to vote and choose which design you like best :)

    You can vote multiple times, and I dont plan on having two different body types in the game.

    What that means is if one body type gets more votes than the other, then I will choose the two

    most popular designs from that body type. Hope that makes sense. So please cast your votes!

    Ok so here are the final decisions after the polls on Peter Pan and Captain Hook. I think Im going to have to come up with another name for Captain hook since this design isn't so Jolly.

    Im happy to see that more people participated in the voting for Captain Hook this time. I like these designs. I have a sort of Link vs Ganondorf ting going on with the main skins. I also like that Captain hook doesnt have a sword. So now I can make him a faster, more melee-based character. The alternates leave the game open for a futuristic alternate universe. Im going to have fun with this :).

    Anyways, now that I have the final decision on these designs I am going to create model sheets and more concept art and get rolling on my new art pipeline.

    The next version of the demo will have a demonstration of a story mode, ability to select different skins at character select, more balanced moves, and im hoping to have the networked multiplayer feature up and running, but that i can't guarantee. Im also going to start a newsletter so that when the next version of the demo is ready people will know right away.

    So I aim to have two more polished characters for the next version of Immortal Fray to better showcase the Story Mode and Networking capabilities.

    Please vote on which set of characters you would like to see in the next version :)

    So it looks like Red Riding Hood and Big Bad Wolf are taking the stage and will be the next two characters added. Soon Ill post the new character sheets I created for the new version of Pan and Hook. Ive already begun the concept for Red Riding Hood. I have a rig for big bad wolf already made and Ive received nothing but good feedback on it and Im sure the community will approve.

    Stay tuned for a new website, footage of the art creation process, news on the new build of Immortal Fray and more! Ill be creating a newsletter soon so people will get updates instantly.

    Also, a friend of mine forced me into trying out his new Oculus Rift. He insists that I make the game compatible with virtual headsets so I think thats something worth working towards.

    Your concept art and idea is soo cool, but not super in to the 1997 look. I would just make the game look like your concept art and keep the rest of what you are doing.

    (hope honest feed back helps)

    *Disagreed*

    1997 was the GOAT year of the 1990's.

    This is the new Peter Pan's weapon of choice! The Eagle Claw! The game will be going for a cell shader look and Im excited to show off the new environments and progress on the characters when the time is right. This will happen around the time I get the new site up and running.

    Thanks. Not yet. Im redoing all of the artwork and animations for the next version. I plan to have it playable by early July at the latest. On top of that Im working on the new features of the game. Soon Ill have a new site up where people can subscribe to the news letter to get access to the next demo and stay updated. Expect more pre production concept art soon :)

    How many fairy tales have you chosen?

    From Disney to Grimm.

    Good question. I've thought about this extensively and without funding, if I were to work on this at the pace that I am, id focus on just the starting cast. Although its not likely.
    I plan to pitch to publishers and or crowd fund after the next version of the demo is out. This is because once I start my clinicals in the hospitals next year, im going
    to be very limited on time if I'm not able to pay my rent doing this lol. Anyways here are some lists.

    *This is concept art from the web. Im doing my own versions of these characters*

    Starting Lineup:
    1. Peter Pan
      disney_heroes_iii__peter_pan_and_tinkerbell_by_aznnerd-d533n3r.png
    2. Captain Hook
      NUP_166283_0992_0.JPG?resize=379%2C506
    3. Red Riding Hood

    4. Big Bad Wolf

    5. Santa

    6. Jack Frost

    7. Tsuki Usagi

    9. Hercules

    10. Hades - in this game hades will be female
      091731ab7964811e934e9b443deaa90f.jpg

    These characters will be available right away. The next set of characters will be unlockable through story mode.

    Unlockables:
    1. Puss in boots

    3. Alice

    6. Genbu
      Naruto_v36_ch317_p01.jpg
    7. Cthulhu
      cthulhu_by_zaidoigres-d34i3u8.jpg

    so 17 in all

    After the game is out I plan to run public polls. These polls will determine two new characters that will be released as DLC for the game ever 3 months while the game is out.

    This is a snap shot of the new training stage for Immortal Fray
    0oErVp1.png

    All of the stages will be textured like this and most will have npc characters in the bg. For the next version of the demo there will be 3 stages in all. Ill show off the other 2 when I'm ready

    So these are the winners for the latest character design polls. From here on out I have a good understanding of what type of design works best for the public. Ill still be running polls. Just not nearly as annoying as I have been.

    So these are the final draft concept designs of Red Riding Hood and Momotaro. Big Bad Wolf is already finalized as a character asset.

    From here on out im busy building this artwork from scratch and ill share my progress.

    So I just found out that my co-workers and I are all getting laid off in September due to outsourcing to India. Its funny cause I used to be a Marine in the USMC before college. I've been to war with people but I've never been fired with a group of people. Feels like a higher power is pointing me down a path that ive yet to understand. Anyways, I'm even more motivated to get this project going. I've learned that when times get tough you have to get tougher. Not about to give up on anything.

    Really liking the progress of your project so far. I just had two questions. When you pitch your kickstarter campaign, do you know what the base funding limit will be at this point? Also I was curious about your favorite fighting games. I find I can find out more about a fighting game from its influences.

    Hey UnarmedTitan, thanks for your questions. Yes after completing the GDD for the game and going over the costs that I would need to cover exactly, I arrived at a base funding amount that I would need. I do plan on running a kickstarter campaign, but im also connected to other funding possibilities. All of this is dependent on how the next version of immortal fray turns out.

    Honestly my favorite fighting games are: Injustice, UMVC3, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Soul Calibur and Tekken. In that order :). I dont mean to offend anyone by not including other great fighting games in this list, but thats my personal opinion. To me those games stand out and have the best presentation. Im a shazam main when it comes to injustice and whenever I have spare time I can site for hours just practicing :).

    Demon Huntress??? the fighter genre already has a female demon hunter that's based off of lil red riding hood and I don't think she'll appreciate this chick jacking her style. ;P But seriously though I'm impressed by all your work. Gotta keep up with this thread more often. so how soon are you to release? Or you still have some ways to go?

    This is true and there is also a graphic novel about little red as a demon huntress as well as a video game. I decided to keep this identity alive so I made my version a demon huntress as well. Im not against changing things around before the prototype is released again :). I care deeply about public opinion.

    As far as release goes, I see myself working on this game for a good year before any kind of release. Thats if I can secure funding. If I cant, then it could take significantly longer. I have to start my hospital rounds in January for nursing school and the only way I can continue to work on this game at that point is if I have the financial backing to pay team members and justify spending my off time on development. Hope that answers the question and doesn't sound depressing -_-
