For a cannonbalt stage you could always just have a large building done in its style, and have some obstacles (I forgot what they were exactly  Facepalm) fall from the skies and hit the stage hard. Since I'm assuming there is no moving platform support, I'm guessing it'd be hard to get moving buildings in, but make you could mess with isometric buildings so that when a building passes (Or a gap is coming out) you could make the platform passable, and make it back to normal when another building comes in.

Maybe that makes it more clear

IIRC scrolling stages are supported. Would it be possible to have a scrolling stage that looped on itself so as to appear endless?

If that could be done and the obstacles pseudo-randomised it could make a pretty convincing canabalt stage, providing it doesn't require too much work.

There's moving platform support. It just isn't being utilized.

IIRC, the last time a Canabalt stage was discussed, the main concern was being able to capture the feeling of speed without making the stage move too fast to fight on.

Ah, that problem likely still stands. I've not played it myself so I don't know how it might be worked around.

I think the best way to capture the speed would be the same as how SSBB captures the speed in the F-Zero stages.

We could have the fight take place on one of the ships the flies around in the background. It would fly just above the buildings, so falling characters would get flung sideways when hitting the ground, but could still survive if quick. (like in Big Blue)

Occasional hazards could be:
There are several Warning marks along the top of the screen, then the ship smashes though a window in the side of the building, which would kill anyone up there that got hit by the building. (Maybe just spiked for balance sake?) After a couple seconds it exits again.

The ship gets shot down be one of those missiles. (Friendly fire?) A warning appears where the missile will hit. After it hits, the ship crashes and the characters land on a now not moving building. After fighting there for a bit, another ship rises up and lifts the characters before blasting off at full speed again.


Ship Screenshot: (This was very hard to get! I'm not gonna try getting a good missile screenshot.)

agreed, that sounds intensely fun. So someone should totally make a stage topic for it

Character suggestion:

Dudebro from Dudebro MSIFUSIGTSSU II:ISUDT
The game is unreleased as of yet but if you look up the website it is going fairly well. Dudebro would obviously be a strong and slow character who would use a variety of weapons to shoot/stab you.

 I suggest using one at least of these two characters from "Little Fighter 2", as a playable character for this game, but that's up to you.

Julian (Little Fighter 2)
 A well balanced character with a limited, but powerful moveset.

Davis (Little Fighter 2)
 A well balanced character with a moveset focused on dealing combos.

The trouble with the LF2 characters is that they're very generic, and seem designed more to fill certain niches (sword guy, ninja guy, fire guy, archer guy) than to be unique, iconic and memorable characters in their own right. That said, LF2 is a pretty well-known game, and as a beat-em-up, it has many similarities with Indie Brawl.

I think it's at least worthy of a support character. Davis, who apparently has his own action  figure, is probably the most iconic character from the series, but Julian would be my second choice.

Runman's high speed could make him an interesting character, and there's probably just enough material out there to make a movelist out of. I still think he's best as a support character, but I could see him working as a main character, too.

Josef (machinarium) http://machinarium.net/demo/
Machinarium is great, and I do think we need to include something from it. A stage would make the most sense, but that is a bit redundant with Samorost Island. The trouble with Josef as a character is that he is nonviolent and has no moves that resemble attacks. I could see him as a support character, but I don't know what he would do.

Quote
Commander Video (Bit trip series)http://www.bittripgame.com/
I haven't played these games, but Commander Video doesn't seem to have too many moves. You could probably make a move list for him, but he seems more suited to be a support character.

Quote
Outside of standard running and jumping, his only ability is altering the flow of time, which is absurdly broken for a main character. He'd make a great support character, though, which is why he's on the list.

Quote
It's a line that can flap and spin. I don't even know what it could do as a support character.

Quote
Minecraft guy (Minecraft) http://www.minecraft.net/
He's pretty generic, especially in terms of attacks. Minecraft is much better suited to be a stage.

Quote
Never played it, but it doesn't seem like Dim can do much more than run, jump, and change dimensions (which is inapplicable to Indie Brawl). As far as Matt Thorson's games go, Runman, the bird from An Untitled Story and Ogmo are the most iconic characters.

Quote
Toribash (Toribash) www.toribash.com
Again, the issue is that Toribash fighters are designed to be as generic as possible, with few distinguishing features.

Quote
He can't do anything but run and jump, so he can't be a main character. He is planned as a support character, though what he actually does has yet to be determined.

Quote
What I said about Dim basically applies here as well.

Thanks for the reply. Runman Would be a fantastic chracter. I think with a little work Josef could be used well too. Heres some ideas for attacks I have came up with for Josef:

1.   Open his mouth: In the game Josef puts objects in his mouth, in Indie Brawl these objects could be used as projectiles, throwing random objects at players such as lightbulbs. Long distance
2.   Punches: Josef stretches his arm and punches his opponent.
3.   Zap: Josef strikes electricity at his opponent.
4.    Rise and fall: Josef stretches his body and swings his arms at opponents.
5.   Block: Josef pulls rubbish out of his mouth and builds a wall acts as a temporary shield.
6.   Flamethrower: Josef drinks oil, then burps out fireballs. Short distance


Images of the attacks can be seen here:http://img121.imageshack.us/i/dsc00195o.jpg/

Take Notice of the large red numbers rather then the smaller black ones. The numbers in red are related to the text above.
I would really like Josef in indie brawl, He is a fantastic character. The game is fantastic

Thanks and please take this into consideration,
Sawrig
