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.

Hey guys :D !!

We're still plugging away. Things have been really crazy here over the last couple of months, with a lot of extra work that we didn't necessarily factor into our plans.

I need to get better at managing expectations, as I haven't done such a great job of that recently (sorry :p) !

We've got loads to share, but can't share any of it until the new year once we've finished our current work load! For anyone who doesn't know about us, Meteor Pixel is a work-for-hire studio and we have lots of client work on at the moment. Bushido only gets worked on during our spare time, which is why things have been very quiet over the last 6 months :) !

Don't worry guys, we're still making lots of progress! We've been very quiet on the updates front, sorry about that, but we're hoping to be in a position to release some new content soon!

Hi Marius-Aetius! We'd love to build in some kind of competitive play from the ground up... its definitely on the cards!

sam.ibbitson @ Sneak Peek 3 - Audio Tests

Hey guys! This test is just showing off some of the audio and how its been implemented in the game. We've still got a lot of work to do with regards to balancing the audio, making certain sounds quieter/softer/etc... So don't worry - it won't sound this full on in the finished version!

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!!
