My name is Sam and I'm the lead game designer at Meteor Pixel. We're currently working on a new project called Bushido: Legend of the Samurai - a multiplayer combat game set in feudal Japan. I'm into gaming, 3d modelling, art, history and engineering.

Hi Mikelon12. Its difficult to give an exact date as there is is a lot of uncertainty over how things will progress over the coming months (e.g. will we get funded, grow the team, etc...). Personally I'm hoping for Q4 2015 or early 2016!

Soon! We've actually been working away on our new environment but also have a new player model (nearly) ready to show off AND after what seems like months so new animations!

Chambering yes, clashing isn't a mechanic we've looked at yet as we're still trying to optimise the networking element of the game!

Hey DELTA38g!

We agree that good voice acting is important. Our idea was always to record two sets of audio, and then let people choose which one they want to use - one recorded in Japanese, the other in English :) !

Thanks,
Sam

Hi Dcdshadow1 - glad to hear that you're excited about the game!

To answer your questions:

1) Yes, the intention is that there will be 1, 2 handed weapons, duel wielding, spear and bow combat... although we're only really working on 2 handed combat with a katana at this stage (its a lot of work to do!).

2) Its multiplayer only and we're hoping to have teams of players (perhaps maxed at 24 players per server)

3) Yes - lots! You'll be able to create your own samurai avatar.

4) We hope 2015 but there is still a lot of work to be done!

Thanks :) !

Hi 47Ronin - and thanks :) ! In terms of configuration, we're not 100% sure ourselves yet as we haven't done any testing on machines other than our own.

That said, we're aiming for it to run on most mid-range machines quite comfortably!

That's right - Every element of Bushido is grounded in history (from the maps to the armours, weapons, etc...).

Whoops - thanks for spotting that one DaveW! This is, of course, a render of the model, not in game.

Hi! We are actively working with a martial arts school from the UK to help inform and develop the combat system!

Probably the later I'm afraid - were not really fans of the FTP model as other games have implemented this system and it feel more like 'Pay to Win'.

So yesterday was our first day working full-time on Bushido, and it was totally awesome! We're really chuffed that we made the leap to do this and cant wait to start pumping out some more regular updates.

Also, Jay more or less finished the first phase of multiplayer implementation yesterday - exciting stuff!

Hi Blackfalcon501 - its definitely on the 'to-do' list... We've got a lot of experimenting to do but I'm hoping it'll just be a case of changing the faces/hair styles and possibly minor adjustments to the overall size of the player? Creating brand-new 'female' models just wouldn't work time-wise.

Exactly that - we're using the term 'class' to sort of define a style of armour etc... We're still playing with this concept a lot so it may change if we think it works better in a different way!

Hi RoyalWatcher! The idea is that you can pick any face for any class, and then customize it with hairstyles, scars, etc... We're still really nailing down the customization stuff as focus over the last 4-6 months has really been in-game stuff and multiplayer!
