Hi guys, I'm a fan of KH, and I'm developing a free open resource 3D fighting game for Japanese learning, you can read more about it on Game Concept Section of Greenlit:

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=599564530

This is a non profit project for the community, I don't want pr or sell it. And I will publish what I made, for example: fighting animations in source format, so other developers could reuse them for their own projects (even commercial)
All the learning content I will also publish so you could create foreign language learning game more easily.

The game idea is very risky. But nothing is impossible. And I'm still studying for creating a good gameplay, to make sure it's fun. When the playable demo is out, I could discuss more about the way we implement it.

For example: We are developing a Kanji drawing system by mouse dragging (or finger swiping on mobile ). It's not a new idea, but still is a useful feature, because you do not have to type for learning Kanji and Hanzi.

------------------
If I want to attract hardcore gamers, the game itself must be a little epic. I've uploaded a clip to demonstrate Orc fighting style

[video=youtube;UkCsudMV3l0]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkCsudMV3l0[/video]

Light Attack (L): Kick
Medium Attack (M): Shield bash
Heavy Attack (H): Upword slash

The first combo is M L H <- H .I will upload more demo clips about the remain combos.
There are still some weird animation bugs, I will fix them soon.

--------------------
And please vote for this idea on Greenlit Game concept Section, so I can gain more critics.
I'm just a loan wolf, there is only one way I have to post this idea so I could gain more critics from experts. They already helped me to improve the concept.
You will see many Japanese characters like ninja, samurai... appear in season 3 (if this game survive and people like it), when The Humans return to Myth-Earth for taking revenge.

One for all !!! :biggrin:

@chuman: Fortunately, you didn't read this as Hore Combat (just kidding man :cool: )

I really like the Hack n Slash Combo style of Sora, it's my inspiration when I create fighting actions.

How is the game idea risky?

Other than that, hit detection/animations needs adjusting. Good start so far.

So, let me get this straight... you want to create an educational fighting game.
Concept's a lot more interesting than most "educational" games that I've come across, I'll give it that.

As a KH fan, I alway want to play J version, but Japanese is too hard, so I have to find a new way more interesting.
@Recon :

For example: after gaining critics, I modified the game concept.

There are many quizzes inside a battle. Player choose his choice by attacking opponent with rule: first choice is high parts like head, chest... second choice is middle parts like lower torso, hands... third choice is low parts like thighs and foot. I removed this game mechanic idea, because it's not implementable

Before each round, gamer has to answer several quizzes .The quiz has form: What does X mean? and four choices.
If a player answer right first, he will get bonuses like HP, DEF, ATK, GAUGE, MOVEMENT, special effect, extra skill... in the next round . If the answer is wrong, he will be punished.
You could imagine, it's similar to Test Your Luck in Mortal Kombat 9, but instead of using slot machine, we use quizzes to test your might and mind.

So we don't need to concern about the confliction of turn based quizz and realtime fighting actions.

I've finished 30 Orc actions

I also started to create Titan's actions, so in the playable demo, I could demonstrate the gameplay of 3 different sizes (Dwarf, Orc, Titan)

And this is first testing actions of Titan

I really like fighting with Titans in Kingdom Heart :tongue:
