This is DJames Goddard, the original designer of SFII Hyper Fighting.
While this is not Street Fighter, or fighting game related, I wanted to share with you all the news of my company’s 1st xbla game- the news story at GS is right here:
update: new IGN coverage with some ship info: http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/840/840477p1.html
update- last one: http://www.1up.com/do/gameOverview?cId=3164597 (read this for sure for fighting engine info)
For the last 17 years, I have dedicated myself to doing fighting based games, this is no different. While a space game, the engine and the ships were created using the same techniques and balance theory’s that make fighters so awesome. This is such a different game for myself and co-street fighter designer David Winstead (SSFII & SSFIIT) who is also on the project! Best of all, the game is done by mostly 1st time developers who love fighting games and put their passion into this genre to bust it wide open.
Check out the game and let me know what you think! We will be doing balancing soon, key figures on the board and here in AZ know how to reach me if you want to help.
