Sooo, hi guys, I'm new here but I hope nobody rips me apart for that.
Anyway, this is what I wanted to show:
The most important stuff first:
This mockup is full of templates. Especially the characters, which are actually from King of Fighters 13, and the background, which is a random photo of some dance floor I found via Google. I just used these as placeholders. So don't praise me for "amazing sprite work" or anything that I didn't do (yet?)
Some graphics are subject to change, obviously, but the basic layout will be what you see here.
What you see here is a GUI mockup for a 1-on-1 fighting game idea called "Strikestra" I had for years now and I hope to see it come to fruition someday.
This screen may look like any other fighting game out there. The small twist with this game is that characters aren't fighting with hands and feet or weapons, but with music instruments.
Imagine some kind of casting show (like American Idol etc.) where people perform musical acts WHILE beating their face in. That's the basic premise of the game.
Fighting game terms (like Combos, Power Bars and Special Moves) are changed to fit the musical theme of the game (Combo-Hits are "Notes", Combos themselves are "Melodies", Power Bars are "Note Charts" and consist of "Beats" that are filled with enough "Notes, etc.).
Combo names are also obviously named after famous composers of the olden days (as you can see with the "Straussome!!!" text below the combo counter).
Music plays a big part in the game (sadly I am currently unable to say much about that, not because I don't wanna say it but I wouldn't know how to describe it in English right now, sorry).
I think I have said everything I can for now, I hope I didn't forget something.
So...yeah, tanks for any criticism, positive or negative.
