Furious Jack on Kickstarter

Furious Jack on Kickstarter

Furious Jack is another Kickstarter project we think should stay under your radar. As you'll see in the videos inside, the comic book look and the very detailed animations are very well done. Let's now hope the developers can reach their €60,000 goal so we can all try the game when Fall 2017 comes.

Its weird but i actually prefer the low ees look of mother russia bleeds to this. This reminds me way too much of a flash game. It does animate well though, but the cleanness of it all is very offputting.

Reminds me a lot of Shank, I loved that game. Hope this game hits it's goal but I won't back it as it's not Toejam & Earl.

This looks great and the animation is real nice. You can almost feel the gameplay just watching the animation

Looks great, kinda makes me think of a souped up modern take on like Streets of Rage.

Awesome, I love it am a huge Streets Of Rage 2 fan and Final Fight.

Really glad I backed it on KS, I hope they make it.

LOL, I knew you was going to say that, we had that debate with Shank already. :D Although I like both styles, the traditional 2D pixelated as well as the clean look, Mother Russia Bleeds somehow didn't click with me. I like the art actually, as well as the gore, what I don't like is the game speed (too fast + no weight to punches) and how they're handling effects -> awful blur / zooming / rotating / tilting instead of drawing actual animation frames, which makes it look crap and really cheap overall imo (which it wouldn't if it had a clean look btw). So yea, Furious Jack > Mother Russia Bleeds for me.

Agreed. I would prefer to see a guilty gear xrd style. That look very much like an actual anime. If the developers would just do an action adventure game or rpg with that.

    Melmoth only played the first area (after the prologue), and it's more openworld-ish than the other From games. very vertical , and wider play area. (32 minutes ago)
