The n`Jutsu design-goal:
* make a funny martial arts fighting game
* add impressive jutsus (==energy/ki/chakra/whatever attacks)
* try to combine the mentality of Kakashi (The man who copied over 1000 Jutsus) and Orochimaru (I want to learn all jutsus) in one game
= Supreme action with unlimited variety

What people can expect:

* easy three key melee (punch, kick, block) with loads of combos
* an easy system to perform handsigns and cast jutsus out of a huge catalogue of jutsus
* Ninja tools like shuriken, kunai or paperbombs
* Genjutsus to trap the opponent
* the major chars as mime-skinned models (to keep a healthy distance to other games and the manga)
*** Find an own, individual and unique style of fighting

Tech
The gameengine is CellBlock9, which started as engine for LemmingballZ and gets separated to be able to make standalone games. This separation is not complete yet and there are several Lemmingball features still coded into the engines core, but that will cease in future - we do have contact to the engines developer.

AlphaRelease
The Alpha is ready to run, the autoupdater works fine, only the chatroom does trouble... only hotseat and Lan/IP connect will work

Change of plans...
I got dizzy coz of too many moves at first release, so I decided to cut down on the mass and focus for now on the quality of the jutsus.
This means that the original plan to add 5(+2.5) jutsus per element is for now aborted, instead it will be a base of 3 jutsus per element until all 12 of them are added and tested properly - this makes it easier for the alphatesters to get along with it and for me to work on the balance - don´t be upset, the plan to make more is just postponed, but not abandoned, and they do already exist, waiting to be polished up for release.

You mean the pokemaster who likes cats and is not interested in girls?
He is already in the download.. and in the video, and on the coverpic, and on a screenie... dont be too strict about the look... until we get a decent modeller :P
BTW: sharingan (reading moves) is a feature that every char at nJ has, as well as 360° vision(biakugan), chidori is lightning style jutsu(comming soon), amateratsu might become secret or shadowstyle(I think i got a slot left open for that at the shadowstyle), Khamui (which i only know from k´kshi) will be a secret jutsu for sure

he looks like a lemming and I will not waste more time on editing models, nor will i accept more edited models. We will have to live with these 6 bad-looking-but-at-least-no-full-lemming models for now :P
Quilzinhoo also thinks that its better to wait for a real modeller - he made the handsigns and arena9 logo and probably more stuff in future :P

definitely not!
I am aware of the current modfever of the LBZ community and promise that this is NOT going to be just another mod, but a really own game... and i dare to say one of the most complex fighting games you will ever see!

But i admit:
Until the engine gets updated, we will have to live with some LBZ features like the scouter, the (not game influencing) aura, the (still very influencing) Kaoken and a displayed, but not used powerlevel display - and of course people who will ask if its not just another LBZ mod :P

P.S.: the first demo has just been authorized by moddb, so convince yourself :P

I uploaded a demo, it is currently waiting for moddb approval.
I also worked a lot in advance, but only with 90 basicjutsuss instead of the planned 132 - so dont worry, a full version could be released if we lose the fun in making it.
Why not release them right now? The engine was originally designed for LemmingballZ and the idea to separate engine and game from each other is also not new, but so far, nobody gave Analytical (maker of the engine) a reason to work on that feature.
Therefore, some LBZ features are still hardcoded into the engine and can not be removed by me for the moment, please keep patience, Analytical has a real life too and is not the kind of "I live only for my PC" person.

flying is only a form of perspective, we will need the full screeensize for big jutsus - CB9 is not that far at the moment, so this is a point to discuss some time in future... same counts for the scouter thingie, currently i can not remove the powerlevel stuff - but it has no influence on the gaming

If your character's are going to stay so small maybe you should rename the game "Chibi N'Jutsu". ;^)

some jutsus are very big, and the screen is zooming - so the size is relative to the players distance... but chibbi nJ sounds good too (plz also look at the "first animations" video which shows them at close range

It's not that the jutsus are big. I was just saying that the porportions of your characters are short like that of a short person or little kid.
For example Images1.fanpop.com

Anyway, I watched the "first animations" video and It seems like if the jutsus get smaller the closer you are to the enemy it might take away from the "impact" of the jutsu. IMO the jutsus should stay the same size, but if you're close enough to the other player it would change slightly to make it seem like the jutsu is trying to expand to it's natural size, but it can't because it's getting pressed against the opponents body. That could also be possibly used a knock back method too. I hope you know what I mean.

aaa...
for the model point: I am not a modeller, these models were edited from lemming-models (with friendly permission of the real modeller) - obviously, I suck at this... modellers with interest, I beg you to contact me.
The melee video is only taijutsu. hand to hand combat, these moves work in a the-more-the-slower-the-more-damage way (unless you trigger a combo which will be fast and powerful)

The size of a jutsu does not change with the distance to the opponent, it is defined by the jutsu itself - maybe in future there will be also a way to influence the chargetime to vary size and/or speed of it.
I guess the impression of shrinking size is currently connected to the fact that the melee is at the moment just added to be there, I need to wait for further development of the engine to get what we need for a good taijutsu part.

The push-opponent-back thing is more a jutsu depending point, we would not want the opponent to get pushed back by fire if we want to fry him inside it, but we would want him to be pushed back if we summon a wall of ice, do we?
