Anonymous asked: Will Oliver be in the Unity Version?
Yes and no. ”Yes” in that he will be a playable character still, but “no” in that he wont appear in the same way he does currently. Since the vast majority of the characters in this game have ranged weaponry or attacks, characters of Oliver’s size don’t really belong and tend to struggle. On top of that, other characters suffer since basic combos don’t work on him. Admittedly, this was not planned well since I originally intended all of the characters to be around MC Supercut’s size or shorter. Obviously, that didn’t end up happening.
pixelsquidy asked: 1-Will their be any Projectile/Gunner Characters? 2- Will their be any characters like Bridget from Guilty Gear? (Not the Cross dresser part)
I’ll number my answers to avoid confusion.
- There sure will be! I’ve actually got several planned out. Mech Oliver being one of them.
- I think warrants a multi-part answer since I’m not 100% sure what you’re looking for.
- If you’re looking for something similar to her playstyle; honestly, I haven’t considered anything like that since Bridget seems to be more catered to the air-dash style gameplay. I do like her disjointed weapons though and I’m certainly open to exploring something that plays that way. Pretty sure this is what you were asking me, but just in case…
- If we’re just talking design/personality style, then I’m sure something that we come up with will appeal to you somehow in that manner.
Anonymous asked: Are these new designs for Unity, M.U.G.E.N., or both?
Unity actually. Funny thing is, we briefly entertained redoing all the sprites in 2D and even went so far as to start on a few characters. Example:
Problem was that 3d is going to be easier to work with and I feel like we can get a better look out of it that way. Having said that, unless I seriously have nothing better to do with my time post-Unity release, the MUGEN version will likely be left as-is. My main reason for this is that elecbyte vanished yet again. No real point in updating a game on a severely dated engine.

Anonymous asked: Is the developer stream still going to happen today?
We had some severe technical issues here, but we are live now!
We’re planning on doing one last developer stream before the 1.70 patch release on March 1st. So come join us at 1:00 PM PST this Saturday (02/22). Ask us questions, make suggestions, or just watch us play with some of the new content.
Here’s where you can watch:
Still working the final details out, but getting a bit closer to our final overall look.
Yeah, I was going to wait a bit until I had these finalized, but here are some basic sketches of some ideas I’ve been having for the new designs. These aren’t final and are definitely subject to change, but you can get an idea of the new direction we’re going with.
