Introduction

One night in Southtown at the end of the Real Bout tournament, Geese Howard faced his sworn enemy Terry Bogard. Terry swiftly defeated his rival, whom was left hanging on a ledge. Terry reached out to Geese Howard to save him, but instead of accepting the help, and therefore defeat, Geese let himself fall to his death.....

Luckily for him he got better, and was back the next day handling his business/crime syndicate. However, something had been bothering him. This had been the third or fourth time he died, and when he was inactive, people kept taking over his tournament. First it was that Wolfgang Krauser guy. Then it was some douchebag in a tuxedo with a battleship. Then it was a bunch of Orochi and Nests jerks.

So he came to the decision that he would run the greatest King of Fighters ever. He sent invitations to everyone who has ever been in a videogame for a giant tag team tournament. The King of Fighters would be his once again!

What this is

This is my latest UFGE project. I've always wanted to work with SNK sprites again. I used to make tons of Fatal Fury and KOF characters for the SFibm and SFR engines. Since there are tons of characters in the KOF style I could use and edit into new characters. I also wanted to make a game with a parody storyline like I did when I made the old SFninja and SFranma games. There were also a bunch of ideas, characters and sprites I made for several unfinished projects, so I'm melding them into this giant one. One thing that was really important to me was that I got permission to use the Misamu K Young and Mr. S. I really wanted to use those sprites and am very thankful for getting a positive reply from Misamu.

I wanted to design the gameplay of the characters the way I wanted to. I use SNK style sprites with 6 button Capcom style gameplay mostly based on Capcom vs SNK 2. It's the same as all the other games I make, and it's a system that I'm used to. I'll be the first to admit that my characters aren't "arcade-perfect" and I do take a lot of shortcuts (especially with skipping frames). I also like to simplify the commands of moves like making a half circle motion into a quarter circle, or replacing double fireball super moves with an vs. style single fireball motion with 2 buttons. When I've tried to make characters with every frame, or a ton of moves, I've tended to lose interest and it doesn't feel like accomplishment as much as it feels like a roadblock. I just do this for fun, and there have been times where it hasn't been fun anymore. I'd compare a game like this to a slight step below a SNES translation. Not arcade perfect, but very playable.

The original plan was for the 1.0 release to feature characters organized into 2 man tag teams in story mode. However the tag teams in story mode didn't work like I expected and problems with things such as making endings and a general loss of interest in this project made me decide to release the .95 version the way it was so I could just get it done.

However, I have been really inspired to complete this project with storyline mainly inspired by the new KOF releases as well as other things. The main thing that discouraged me was the problem that the UFGE engine has with tag matches and the fact you cannot choose any 2 members of your team in story mode. I decided to create a story mode using elimination mode. Teams of 2 fighters are now set. When you choose a character, you will play as the 2 man team. The character chosen is the one who goes into battle first. I had a problem with getting set opponent teams in story mode. No matter what, the 2 people chosen for teams in story mode were random. I tried several ways to work around this with no success. So I decided to leave it the way it is.

While previous updates were about converting the main KOF characters and setting the teams, the 1.5 update focused on the goofy characters like Kyo-14 and SNK style Mario. I had a lot of ideas I want to add, and released the sprites of each edit I make one by one when I finish them.

After the 1.5 release, I'm going to make all updates as a new game, and change around the storyline because I found that the setting of teams really limited what I wante to do character wise. Infact you can probably tell which endings were rushed. I had a bunch of brainstorms recently, and there are still many edits I want to try out.

Resources

I have decided to look into several of the Mugen characters that have been declared open source. I assume that the sprites and sounds I have taken are declared. All of the links to the places where I got them or where they were declared open source are in the last section. I want to keep a good terms with the Mugen creators, and will respect their wishes. I will not use anything not open source or without asking permission if not.

And I still have Kawaks and Jukebox. :)

That said, I have also decided to let some of my edits be open source. Although I have had mixed luck with people making characters from my D Fighter project, some really good, but some really bad. I feel if I put out the word in the right place someone could use these sprites for some good characters.

Character properties/Universal moves

Here is a quick list of the basic universal character properties. I'd compare the game feel I'm going for as similar to Street Fighter Alpha and Darkstalkers. Despite this being graphically based on the SNK style. The gameplay will still have a 6 button Capcom style basis.

Each character will have a vs style super bar that fills to 9 levels. There will be level one Super Arts and Super Duper Secret Desperation Arts of Desperation, which despite the fancy name, are just level 2 supers.

Unlike my previous games, there is no air blocking.

Light juggling is possible.

Taunting increases your super bar.

Characters and dash forward and backwards by tapping twice in either direction.

To play as the super secret boss that is not obvious at all enter a special code at the select screen. You know, like the once in Contra that gets you 30 lives or something like that.

Thoughts on the project

This is a list of what is in my mindset when making this game.

As I said before I really wanted to make a SNK style game. My favorite game back in the day was King of Fighters 1994. I played that all the time in the arcade. Many characters that have went through many changes in later games will have their old movesets here. Infact I see it similar to the Capcom vs SNK series where the SNK characters reflected their older versions with only a few new moves added in.

I'm a strong believer in "less is more". I'm not too big of a fan of games where the combos are overdone, like 40 hits for a move that does tiny damage. Although I do have some flashy level 2 supers, I want to keep the game a bit more grounded. I will not have any "Evil", "God", "Orochi" or "Rare" style characters. However, I may have sub-bosses that are alternate versions of default characters (for example something like Terry Bogard and Wild Wolf in KOF:MI). Also, in that vein, I will not make helpers for my characters unless it really fits them (say like Galford and Poppy for example). And maybe "Orochi" versions are good if not overdone. I'm pretty much saying I'm not going to make any overdone bosses that can kill in 1 hit.

One of the main inspirations of making this game was Super Smash Brothers. However, I liked the idea more than the gameplay. I loved that old retro characters were being made with many references to their games. I also liked characters like the Ikari Warriors and Psycho Soldiers in KOF as well as Final Fight guys in Street Fighter Alpha. I was going to make a game called "Old School Heroes" full of characters like this. I decided to combine part of that and use SNK style graphics for the edits. There are many characters I'd like to make. From old arcade games I played at the local bowling alley, to early pre SF2 fighters, to a character from a totally different genre just to see if I can make them.

Another thing that recently inspired me was that there are a lot of Mugen KOF projects being released. The best ones in my opinion being KOF Zillion by Mugenchina and KOF Evolution by Swipergod. Each project has their own direction. I wanted my game to have a Fatal Fury theme, so this game has a lot of references to the first game. I also wanted to add a lot of jokes to the game, like I did with my SFninja project. That always seemed to be the most well recieved part of my games in the past.
