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.

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?

So at the moment, the intention is to only allow players to choose from a specific range of colours (all of which will be historically accurate, e.g. no neon pink!).

Nice idea Ninja-Monk - we'll certainly think about it (its just finding the time!).

As Lemonater47 has said, we started out as a mod for Chivalry. Since then we've come a long way in developing our combat system, which will be a lot more realistic then Chivalry but hopefully just as much fun.

We'd love to shoot for something as impressive as Kingdom Come, but they've got a much larger team of very talented individuals (and have also raised a lot of £££). Maybe we we're as successful for our own Kickstarter we'll be able to aim for something similar.

Appreciate the feedback Alberto - its something we'll look at!

I expect you would be able to run it fine, although obviously not at the higher graphical settings!

Haha, not at all!

The screenshot above was captured at runtime on a mid-range rig. The GPU on the machine we used is only a Radeon HD7800 and is a few years old now. We're just levering some of Unity's latest rendering technologies to push the envelope!

At the moment our idea is to release on PC, but we won't rule out releasing to other platforms :) !

Not yet, but thanks for asking. We will be running a fund raising campaign later this year :) !

Haha sorry AydinDubstep, you'll just have to play Shogun Total War to get your RTS fix :p ! Mind you, it does sound like a cool idea!

Thanks RoyalWatcher - I don't think you'll have to wait too long to see what the Ninja monk will look like :D
