BANZAI! is a modification for the game Unreal Tournament 2004. It aims to be a simple, fun and easy to play game while bringing back the good old fashioned ’side-scroller’ gameplay. Inspired by many different side-scrolling games of old such as Castlevania, Contra, Ninja Gaiden, and Megaman, BANZAI! is a hail back to the old glorious days of 8-bit and 16-bit gaming. This however does not mean we are limiting the game to the "old school" looks. Our team works hard at creating something that's not only fun to play but also pleasing to the eye. If you like sidescroller platform games, anime-ish looks (and perhaps even a few puzzle elements ;) ) Then this mod might be something to try out.
Sound is no less important than visuals in the long term when talking about a game or mod. Sound is the glue to the models and maps. The stuff that holds it all there and makes it seem like it's all going on. Join up and help us make Banzai the best it can be

Team Banzai is starting to get back on its feet,
As stated previously, all the essential visual positions on the Banzai team have been filled.
However Banzai has yet to have its own Audio section, we need Sound Artists and Musicians who think they could be of help and are willing to participate, hopefully on a long term basis.
Sound is no less important than visuals in the long term when talking about digital media, you can design the best looking tank in the world, give it the world's best texture maps, but if its main cannon sounds like a peashooter when it's supposed to sound like a killer weapon, the tank will metaphorically fall to pieces.
Nothing can beat originality in a game or mod, and sound is the glue to the models and maps. The stuff that holds it all there and makes it seem like it's all going on.
People aspiring to be sound artists, or anybody that has a good knowledge and use of music creation software we need you now!
High school, College/University music and drama students, any level of expertise is better than the zero we are currently holding.
We all got to start somewhere, start it here at Banzai! :)
Even if your thinking, "hmm im not that good to be honest!" get on the net and speak to me! and we will see what the survey says (pardon the pun)
nobody likes constantly hearing stock sounds and nobody likes playing a muted games
