Well, I figure I might as well talk a bit about what I might have done in Maximum Ninja 4, considering you guys are all so disappointed that its on hold indefinitely.
I have lots of concepts and goodies lying around the place. Sketches and whatever. Even some animated footage. Here is a desktop that I intended to eventually release as a promo thing.. But obviously it never happened :/
L33t sp0ilurZ below:
Basically the ninja somehow aggravates his symbiotic gem during his standoff with Steve, which causes him to transform into a weird demon creature. Though I don't want to go into too much detail to give stuff away :3
Steve and demon-ninja fight more and eventually the power from their respective gems clashes so ferociously that it opens up a rift in space-time; and sucks in Steve and David (who was waiting outside for his chance to strike)
The two end up in the future (about 500 years ahead), where the ninja has taken control of the entire planet in a very 'Zerglike' manner. He has parasitic demon-spawn minions everywhere, and they are fuckin' shit up. So Steve and David decide to join forces and take him down, then use his gem to power their journey back to their home-time.
Meanwhile, Arashikage is looking for the Ninja to settle his score. He arrives in time to discover him as Steve and David are sucked away by the portal, which closes afterward.
Arashikage is heavily upgraded, and the Ninja is one badass demon, so naturally they have a catastrophic battle - I don't really want to discuss things further than this; much more happens afterward.
And yeah. I guess this post was a bit of a tease. heh.
In other news. I am working fucking hard on the sequel to RaidenX. I am working as an artist/animator, music/sound designer as well as general project development alongside the genius programmer, Googley. Not to honk our collaborative horn; but this game is going to be amazing... Expect it hopefully later this year!
