Naiteki Kensei

Naruto: Naiteki Kensei is a free stand alone game that offers a unique fast-paced experience based on the hit Japanese anime Naruto. Players are able to compete online using a system that combines aspects of a third-person shooter and an action-based fighter to provide a new thrilling experience. The system includes casting clever and powerful Jutsus, stringing together Melee combos, evasive acrobatic free-form Movement, and utilizing an array of Weapons with multiple functions all seamlessly.

Players are able to transverse through full 3D environments, utilizing various ways of movement such as walking on walls, water, or dashing around the streets of a village.

Gameplay consists of three main systems: Weapons that take advantage of a quickfire system, Jutsus that make use of combo based inputs, and Taijutsu abilities that can transfer into aerial combos!

Players are able to throw a single Kunai, or a spread of Shurikens to damage opponents and disrupt their Jutsu's. Exploding tags can be stuck on surfaces and players, as well as being able to throw one attached to a Kunai.

The Jutsu system allows players to execute powerful Jutsus or techniques. By holding shift, players will then input combo strings of 2-4 using WASD on the keyboard. Correctly inputting a combo will then execute its respective attack.

The Taijutsu or melee system is very simple to learn but takes a lot of practice to become the best. The primary function allows players to attack consecutively for five hits before sending your opponent sliding back. The secondary function allows players to knock their opponents into the air, where various other methods of attack can then be executed, such as throwing a weapon, performing a Jutsu, or jumping in the air to continue an aerial combo.

Naruto: Naiteki Kensei has been officially released to the public! The first release consists of Team 7, which includes Hatake Kakashi, Haruno Sakura, Uchiha Sasuke and Uzumaki Naruto. Each character has three specific Jutsus at their disposal.

Naruto: Naiteki Kense
i R1 is a free online multiplayer game, created as a fan-project for many others to enjoy. It is a total-conversion of Half-Life 1, meaning the game was created based on the Half-Life engine.

Time to get back to updating this page!
Hi guys, SV here! For those who don't know, I'm the lead developer of this project, currently filling various positions such as environment design, modelling, character animations, texturing, visual FX, sounds, and practically just about anything else that doesn't involve programming. Up until now, Tenken was the coder I teamed up with.
A lot has happened behind the scenes though. Good stuff and bad...
Many team members are no longer active due to personal obligations.

Honestly, to say it plainly, it's just me right now.
That's about to change though, starting October!

Either way, that hasn't stopped me from working hard on this project in the past year, and I've made a lot of progress.
Some which I'm very excited to share with you right now. :)

So lets get to it!

Check out one of NNK's new and improved stages, Chunin Exams Preliminary Arena!




This video shows much more than what we've shown in the past.
I wanted to show you the environment with all it's detail, as well as give you an idea of my workflow.
Also, you might notice a few little things I added into the mix just to keep it interesting. :)

Here are some screenshots of the new Preliminary Arena!


New Stage: Preliminary Arena!




And lets not forget some in-game shots!

Can Sasuke even see it coming?

WIP Rasengan!

Chidori ingame!



That's basically it for now guys.
I have a LOT more I'm not sharing yet, because I need to focus on actually working on things, rather than keep track on what's pretty enough to show. ;D

I do promise however, that I'll keep you guys posted, weekly if I can.
What NNK (and I) really needs right now is your support!

If you're a skilled animator with experience, motivation, free time, have lots of passion for Naruto and wants to help the cause, let me know!
I'm currently doing a lot of work on my own, and I could definitely use some help. :)

Thanks for watching and following guys.
Please don't forget to check out our Reddit and Facebook pages for news and media! We might surprise you.

Also subscribe to us on Youtube to make sure you don't miss out on anything. :)
Until next time guys...

- SV

How much would it cost to buy the copyrights or at least a share of the franchise?

Great work done there! Btw, in the Game's Website Naiteki-kensei.com you said you were going without a budget and that is one of the main reasons of your work slowing down... So, I wondered how comes you don't share your work on Kickstarter and (hopefully) while keeping the game free to play get a helpfull amount of money to help your work progress faster and better?
Just saying....

Hey Crash!
Many have asked this question recently, but that is impossible unfortunately.

Naruto is a copyrighted franchise, so I can't involve money in this project in any way. If that project hits Kickstarter it'll be shutdown the moment it gets noticed.
Hiring people is not an option... but I do hope that talented people out there are aware of the project, and may find some time to help in the near future.

Currently, unknown.
The important thing is that I'm still working on it, and might be getting help really soon from two professional programmers who are also great friends of mine, and former R1 coders. :)

Definitely not aiming for a 2014 release, but lets hope next year will be a good year!

Good to hear from you as well. I'm guessing you meant Tenken or perhaps Ryokeen, but I was referring to Dave, Tom, or myself! Why not chat us up on Steam sometime? Dave will be arriving back in the states at our dev house starting tomorrow evening. Might be worthwhile to touch base and see what everyone is up to these days.

I can't believe that this is a HL mod that is to show that gold source "HL engine" is really impressive. Now like in my last review I'm going to get the major bad parts out of the way and for this mod there is not that much.. --------- For starters not that many servers but for a mod like this it happens and same goes for not a lot of characters but like I said for 1.0 it's very well done. Also the usual start server then crashes but a lot of mods have that problem so nothing much to say there…
