06 June 2008, 10:12 PM
Team Name:
Analog Anarchy

Project Name:
Shadow King (Working Title)

Project Description:
A 2D cooperative action/platformer in the Metroid-vania style targeted for the Xbox 360 and Windows. The goal is to create a viable entry for Microsoft’s Dream-Build-Play (DBP) contest: We are not looking to finish the entire game by the deadline (September), only to have a very polished demo level that will be representative of the final game.

Current Team:
Kevin (cosmonaut) – Game Design / Level Editing Tools / Particle/Lighting Effects
Andrew (dairy-boy) – Game Design / Basic Game Engine / Networking

Looking For:
Character Sprite Artist – including character animations
Background Artist
Concept Artists


This is a hobby project though if we win the DBP contest you will receive equal compensation for your work. If we don’t win the game will still be uploaded to Microsoft’s community games portal on xbox live and you will receive full credit for your work.

Current Development:
Basic game engine and editing tools are working using stand-in artwork.

Story Synopsis:
Cast in a futuristic megalopolis, Shadow King places the players in roles of two castaways. One, a young female warrior, fights to right wrongs and win justice those who dwell in the alleys and gutters. The other, an assassin at the top of his game, is out for revenge. Together, these two will topple the galaxy's most ruthless kingpin -- the Shadow King...

You are free to use whatever tools you have at your disposal.

I'd be interested in concept and background
is this like metal slug gameplay? or streetfighter?

Hi Jeremy, we already have a few people interested in doing concept work but we can certainly use some help with backgrounds. The gameplay is more like the newer 2D castlevania and metroid games. Send me a private message if you would like to get started and I'll provide you with more details. We are still in need of someone to do character sprites/animation for the actual game if anyone out there is interested.
