It is with great pleasure I present to you the official Chibi Akumas Episode 2 trailer!



Chibi akumas has gone RTM (or rather RT7Z), it's done, tested, and ready! The game (and it's sourcecode) will be released for free on Halloween from the official website:
http://www.chibiakumas.com/ep2/

Well, there you go! Chibi Akumas Ep2 realizes the CPC game I wanted to make when I started 13 months ago! I never thought I could actually make a game of this standard on the CPC, so I had to cut down my ambition to something vaguely realistic with Ep1... but Ep2 has everything I had hoped I could bring to the game!

I hope everyone will get a kick out of the weird, crazy game I've created! I'm hoping that the combination of the strange dark comedy, crazy bullet-hell action and technical features will bring something new and different to the CPC community!

I hope you enjoy it! the new game is about twice the length of the last... I had to up the default credits to 60

There should be some good replay value too...

1. there are five secret unlockable 'achievements'.. each unlocks a full-screen character poster
2 .there is a second gameplay mode which is unlocked after the first win.
3. there are three different versions of the dialog depending if you play as Chibiko, Bochan or both together... so yeah, you'll need a second player to see all three!

I've had to hold a lot back to avoid spoiling the plot of the game, there's a huge 3rd level boss which I'm keeping secret to avoid spoiling the joke!.. there are over 80 cartoon frames in the cut-scenes and the '256k clip' in the youtube vid is just one part of the 256k enhanced animations from the last boss battle

I got the idea for the looping 256k pre-rendered 3d background from the Neo Geo game 'blazing star', heck if the Neo Geo can do it - we should have it on the CPC!

Very beautiful, but not the first game with 256 KB support, there is one with 4 MB support already ;-)

I knew there were demos with extra ram support, but I wasn't aware of anything playable - what's the 4mb one called?

I HAD thought of asking on here if it was the first, but I knew if I did, some smarta$$ would just release pong with a "512k memory minimum" check on load to beat me to it!

See the Wiki: http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Category:4_MB_RAM_Software
It's Return of the Sisters


Although very cool, it's just a tech demo.
Nothing close to a game as is!


So, Keith is absolutely right: His is the first 256kb game :)
