Punch Out style Genesis/MD game
« on: November 18, 2014, 14:27:47 PM »
Hey everyone,
I posted this over on NintendoAge, and it seems like this idea was well received, so I'd like to present it to everyone here (as well as other gaming communities):

I'd love to make a Punch Out style game, but I would like the boxing opponents to be forum members. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to add everyone who is interested, but I was thinking that people could submit a character bio for the game, and then have a vote/poll to see what characters everyone likes.

The plan is to "clone" punch out, but also have other mechanics and changes to make it unique enough to not be just a straight clone of the game.

Anyway, what's everyone's thoughts about this? Is this something you'd like to see happen? Would you want to be a boxer in the game?

Thanks for reading!

(Also, if this is posted in the wrong forum, I apologize!)

Sounds like a great idea to me! Everyone probably has a list of a few fellow members they would like to punch out :21:

Those are fantastic ideas, both the game and how you want to get the characters.

Thanks for the comments guys! I have found an artist, so it looks like this is happening!

I'll have some more info on submissions for people to become a boxer in the next few days. I'm so excited for this :D

This sounds ace!

Was there ever a Clubber Lang type character in Punch Out?

"Ah don't hate Balboa, ah pity da foo"

I was trying to respond yesterday to this, but my phone is god awful at responding on these forums :P

Anyway, just some additional info at the moment:

A contest is being put on by the artist for those to submit their own designs for boxing shorts and gloves, if anyone is interested!

Here's the rules: http://nintendoage.com/forum/messageview.cfm?catid=22&threadid=138624

For those who haven't registered at NintendoAge, that's okay! Nobody has to register at any other forum if they don't need to. All submissions are to be emailed to submissions@airwalkstudios.com so everything is in 1 centralized location :)
