The current next game

Just a small tidbit to let you guys know that I've begun work on my next game. It is going to be a sidescrolling action game set in a dystopian future, where you fight a totalitarian government's thugs either with your sword or an assortment of various kinds of firearms. The game is going to be in high resolution with advanced enough animations. Genre-wise it will be a bit like the Megaman Zero-games except with an emphasis on the fights as opposed to platforming, with a dose of Muramasa: The Demon Blade thrown in there, as well as Mirror's Edge as far as the setting goes. Work on the animations has begun so I will hopefully have something to show shortly.

The most important thing for me with this game and where I aim to go with it, is to differentiate my work as much as possible from what I've done before. That is, I really want to do something that is not a retro game, and I think from what I've planned this will hit the mark as far as that is concerned. The game is also going to have a much heavier story component which will be very interesting to implement. The working title for the game is Crimson Sky. Last but not least this will also be a much more unique game as opposed to me earlier works which have all been more or less inspired by other games already in existance.
