About

Hastings Paradise is a game about a girl from Detroit in 1937 driven into a time paradox. She will encounter a person named Shun from 2013. They soon find out that something or someone is out to stop historical legends from making history.

The game runs on fighter maker 2nd. If this fundraiser is successful, I will convert the story mode over to RPG maker VX program which I already own.

Lunaport is an online program which allows players to play each other in the game.

The character style is based on the NEO GEO pocket games. Each character is built from a base from the pocket sprites. None of the characters are a cut and paste from other games.

Unique controls------

There are only four buttons to the game which plays like Smash Bros series.

  • Free movement: characters can go in any direction.

A button: (Attack) In different directions. Attacks have different properties depending on direction.

B button: (Block) Block can be in the air, crouching and standing. Not all characters share this.

C button:  (Specials) Different directions have different specials

D button:  (Extra specials, Supers) Shadow moves, Lightning moves and Dramatic supers are all done with this button.

* Power down: Is a way to stop players from abusing Super and Ex moves. It takes away from super bar.

Power Down Dorothy!
Power Down Dorothy!

*Dramatic super bar

There are three levels to super bar. Normals, Throws, and Specials Some characters build from being damaged.

Huge news the game will be free for download next week. There is a RPG version of the game in the works in the coming months. The story mode will more in depth and more legends and original characters will be announced soon.

Risks and challenges

I work full time and design games with my spare time. Delays are bound to occur. I will attempt to release a new character every other month. Once the game is completed, I plan to send copies to licensing companies for the legends represented in the game.

Your money will be used for development of stages, purchasing royalty free music, making copies of the game as well as game art and shipping. My goal is that all music will be original and will fit each character, all stages will be well thought out and fit the stories told within the context of game play and that all game art will be designed by the game creator (me). I also plan on debuting it at New York comic con in October.
