I just downloaded and played the demo, I actualy love it, it has a gripping feel to it, damn you people using the slaughtered family hook! :)

Ofcourse there was one thing that I'd liked to have been in there...
Wall-runs! Do you guys think you could add a parkour/freerun movement style, it doesn't have to be the primary style of move, you just have to be able to switch to it, like in assasin's creed.

Other than that, I enjoyed it very much, espesially the fighting.

I Can't wait to see what this game will be like! Good luck all!

One of my favorite companies! I played the original Lugaru and Black Shades and loved it! A great martial arts game with respectable technology behind it!

also, if you're going to have multiplayer, allow players to choose to team up or fight so you can have versus and cooperative in the same place.

Well they haven't announced the development of multiplayer yet, but they say they will have it and that co-op is easier to implement than versus. So expect at least co-op in the game.
