(6/5/2002) Who better to program a game about QB's favorite game characters than the folks who helped put together the first 100% QuickBasic Game Review Magazine?
It's happened before. Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Super Smash Brothers Melee. Kingdom Hearts. Games which combine tons of popular characters with a simple game format help make great titles, build hype, and introduce icons of the entertainment world to a new generation of gamers. And now, V Games (V Planet's internal QB-game making group) plans to add to this tradition on a smaller scale by making a new fighting game. This untitled project is planned to be a fighting game featuring many of QB's most popular game characters.
"QB games have a very lush library, and V Game's philosophy has always been to build that library by adding to the genres that other QB programmers haven't developed for much yet. That philosophy, combined with the unparalleled knowledge of QB games that the V Planet staff has acquired over the years, makes V Games the perfect candidate to make a QB fighting game based on the programming community's favorite QB characters," hypes V Games programmer Vance Velez.
While character lineups for the sure-to-be much-anticipated QB fighting game will be negotiated with the character's original programmers, much of the gameplay for the QB-based fighting game has already been set in stone. "The game will consist of 1-on-1 fighting game matches, and different game modes including a 'Story mode' that will reason out exactly how all these QB characters ended up in a fighting game."
"We also have a pretty good idea which characters we'd like to include in this fighting game. We're aiming for ten characters in this first game, and hopefully all negotiations go well. Also, because of the development time needed for this QB project, we'll probably end up making a two-game series in which the second game features more characters, more moves, and a more polished look."
V Games currently has two priorities: Curse of Melthias, a Faxanadu-style game that started as a QB game being developed by Hulla-Balloo.com, V Planet's current site host. These two QB projects were among the few retrieved when the hard drive containing the original copy of V Planet was destroyed.
Expect a project page for this new fighter in V Planet soon.
