Thanks for going along with Mutant Mudds even though you might not have gotten the response from that poll you were looking for. It's hard to get people to respond to those. The poll for another Shantae game only had a little over 2,000 people interested after a couple years. Max is a cool idea. I know so because IGN thought it was cool enough to give a big, fat feature article. So me and a few 10s or 100s of thousands of people got to see it and get interested. Can't wait to see how it looks. How many other games do you have in the pipeline if you don't mind me asking?
I've just seen the scans from the Nintendo Power article and I'm stoked you have gone with a 2D rethink with Mutant Mudds. 2D platformers are my favourite genre. I like the new foreground/background element using the 3DS capabilities. If the game is a half as good as Warioland 4 ( the best handheld platformer ever made) then I'll be a happy camper. I hope you cater for lots of replayabilty with speed run recordings/sharing , secret collectables. Love the pixel artstyle. Will the game have a chiptune soundtrack to complement this?Day one purchase for me. :)
Has success changed you? You put the name Renegade in your title. Your 1st game was a super hardcore experience. I know that you've made some adjustments as companies showed interest in you. But the reason I liked you is that you were Renegades. Hardcore. I'm excited about Mutant Mudds. Beautiful art style. But if it is so easy I consider it a casual game then I won't get it. There were these 2 systems, maybe some people have heard of em called the NES and Genesis. And there were these characters they had called Mario and Sonic. They were games that were pretty and simple enough to appeal to casual gamers AND challenging enough to appease hardcore gamers. That's why they're legends. I want Max to be a legend.
Hey, I just read your latest post that said Max is gonna be able to fight on 3 different difficulty settings. Looks like you haven't forget about us hardcore gamers that built your new dynasty. Awesome!!!!!!!!!!! Please don't ever. Renegade Kids unite!!!
I think you'll be happy, Renegade Fan. The game is not catering to casual players. It is certainly more on the hardcore side of things. The gameplay is old school like the art style and chip tune music. However, there is only one difficulty setting. The easy, medium, hard refers to the three playable levels in the E3 demo build, which each vary in difficulty.
