Looks and sounds great. Impressive fighting animations too, especially that right hook.

This is wonderful.

Your description of it as an "existential open world beat'em up" [emphasis mine] is the best game design goal I've read in a loooong time. Thank you. I will be supporting your work.

The fighting looks really smooth and I love the vibe. Love how the music in your Greenlight trailer reminded me of this little masterpiece.

Will this game have 2-palyer-co-op?

Are you planning a console version, if this turns out succesful on Steam? I'd totally download this to my PS4. My PC is too old to game. However, I'm probably gonna get a new PC when Shenmue 3 comes out, so that's fine. I'll download the PC version then.

I'm not planing coop. I was thinking about giving other player ability to control any of Ringo current teammate. But fights so quick and you lose often so i don't think it will work.

I hadn't really thought that far ahead. I must finish the game first of all. The beatemup genre isn't very popular also. I'm trying to make the best game i can for now. And that's all. Thinking about future success is actually quite depressing and demotivating because you realize that it's mostly just dreams.

Not sure how I missed this, but it looks great. Love how you're implementing seemingly meaningless small interaction. When I saw that gif of him just leaning over the wall, I knew this was the game for me.

I remember playing Shenmue with a friend, and we were helping the old lady in the beginning, and he asked me "what do I get for helping her?". What you get... is to help her. Sometimes actions don't have to have some in-game meaning that's associated with some tangible reward--sometimes you just do something to do it.

Anyway, I'm going off on a tangent, in short I admire your goals and what you've shown so far. I'm interested and will likely support the project when it's released.

That's the right attitude to have IMO.

Too many Kickstarter and early access games get too ambitious and keep trying to add new features or mechanics. Then they end up having a bunch of half finished content while still being in beta for close to a decade.

As Calshot already said, I also think that this is the right mindset. A lot of homebrew or indie games fail, because they plan too many ports or too much content.

Shenmue-style training.

Sport clubs training work as cutscenes though. But you can work on the heavy bag anytime at yout room.
