    It will PC first (best version, with shadows, shader effects, higher res, more colours, better in all areas).
    And 3 to 6 months later, a Dreamcast version. I have already the game running on the Dreamcast and this port will be done 100%.

    If the game is successful (Steam and Dreamcast versions), We'll be happy to port it to any capable device :). PS4, Xbone, Switch etc...

    Surely all console versions would look the same as the pc version? It's not Witcher 3 or crysis levels of visual fidelity is it.

    Lol did it come across as rude that? To be honest I am genuinely interested in this. Shinobi is an all time favourite of mine. They need to sort out a realistic Kickstarter this time and not ask for 2.3 million like last time.
    I'll throw a fiver at it.

    You could just play Shinobi though. This is just a camp reskin.

    Very true. Maybe it's the gayness that's attracting me. OMG have I just outed myself over a videogame? I'll be violently bumming lads at a pool party next.

    I need an intervention. Only Dan from Shadowgangs can save me now.

    I am happy that Shadow Gangs is now entering it's second phase, where the levels will be created, and I wanted to share this news with you!

    All the levels will be created from scratch, and by the same artist as the characters one, I am personally expecting some beautiful levels (which I will be designing myself).

    It will be an action exploration kind of game, with big large levels full of secrets etc.. A blend of Shinobi for action, Gods for levels size, puzzles and secrets and more heritage from other games 8bits and 16 bits ones etc...

    There will also be a story with many twists (one team member actually wrote a short one for Shadow Gangs), where Freddy and all characters will have something to tell :)

    The levels number and settings are discussed here:

    If anyone has any idea that he wants to see in the game, I am more than happy to hear.

    For example, I am planning to have posters of Obama and Trump in the first level (New York), with Obama saying "Yes, we can", "make America great again" right next to it from Trump :)

    In the end, there will be 15 normal levels, 5 boss levels, 1 first person perspective bonus stage (Shinobi arcade style), 3 side scrolling bonus stages (final fight style).

    Also, why is the whole suit skintight except for the lower arms? That's very inconvenient, especially for a bright red, flat-footed ninja.
    Also, why would a ninja need an UZI?
    Oh, wait. Because enemies can see and hear him coming from miles away...

    Hello everyone;

    I wanted to share this with you.

    I have been waiting for this phase for a long time, and I have the first WIP of the New York level in progress :).

    I asked the front clouds to be redone, but apart from that, this is what I was looking for.

    It's definitely in my top 5 rectangles.

    Only real thing I could think of to improve it is they should be Jean shorts.

    If you were going for a New York that doesn't look like New York, then you've sure nailed it.

    I don't mind how much authentic or not it is to New York as long as it looks good.

    Like how you've aimed for a walk cycle that isn't quite authentic either.

    The ninja went through 3 walk anim fixes. The one shown here is the last one, It will not be enhanced or fixed, or this game will never be released.
