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.

Well I have absolutely no idea where this month has gone... I'd made plans to show off some new footage, but have run out of time to actually edit it all together!

Really sorry guys, especially after saying we would definitely release some new content... I'll try and upload a few screenshots this lunchtime and PROMISE (pinky promise) that we'll release a new video early next month when we're back from our holiday!

Hi TheMasterofDeath - initially we're focusing on just katana combat, but would love to work on polearm's and other weapon types too!

Combat will work a bit differently than in Chivalry or M&B - its less chaotic and more precise! We also have a parry/riposte system, dodging and blocking... we're hoping to show off some of these features really soon in a video of some sorts!

Yup, TheMasterofDeath has more or less summed it up. Bushido is a multiplayer only game!

We hear you guys :D ! We're always making progress, but sometimes there isn't a lot of shiny stuff to show. Our next big update will probably be at the end of the month!!

Thanks Damien! As for the demo, well we're spending some time at the moment merging different parts of the project and getting it all into a single environment. I'd like to say that the demo will be ready early next year - a bit of a vague answer I'm afraid!

Probably leaning towards a more 'cinematic' realism (in keeping with the rest of the game). That said we will be using authentic instruments where possible!

Thanks Damian! We haven't given too much thought to optimisation just yet- but thanks for the link, I'll take a look.

It'll have a phased release (in 2016) and we'll be announcing our intentions with regards to crowd-funding soon :) !

Supporting mod's isn't anything we've thought about yet - but I'd love to include some form of user generated content?
