We've had a slight delay in raising the forums/community interaction stuff. The solution we were originally considering didn't quite stack up so we're setting something else up now.
In the mean time Jun drew up some of the basic weapons - picture below. The first row three different varieties of ninja sword or "shinobigatana" [忍刀]. From left to right is Water, Fire, and Wind for our three initial characters.
The second row contains two guns which will probably be the weapons used by the Water Ninja, a long range rifle "jyuu" [銃] and a shorter range shot gun "sandanjyuu" [散弾銃]. Remember we've got semi-accurate physics so shuriken [手裏剣] throwing stars and thrown kunai [苦無] utility blades will fall - whereas the rifle will have a much further range. And if you are wondering ninjas did in fact use rifles - that is historically accurate. Next up is the "kama" sickle [鎌] which will be used by the Wind Ninja.
The last row starts out with two kama bound together - binding and modular weapons were rather common for the ninja. Next are 4 varieties of ninja "kanshakudama" firecrackers [癇癪玉]. There is the basic fire, a smoke bomb which will emit smoke and obstruct the views of enemies, a flash bomb which blinds everyone in range for a short period, and a shock bomb which both stuns enemies and physically blasts them away. After that is a set of scrolls. Collecting scrolls powers you up and lets you use increasingly powerful special abilities.
These are just some of the weapons that will be included in the initial chapters with the initial ninja. We'll have more details as we decide on them and get sketches up. In the mean time we'll have a community up ASAP as we get ready. In other news, we may have found another dedicated developer for the team as one of our friends just left a big studio (he was involved in making a game that involves a futuristic ninja on a flat black console).
