Two Gentleman.  Two dirigibles.  Two Four fists.  

In nineteenth century London, there was only one way to settle a dispute - race airships and then engage in a bare-knuckle brawl on top of said airships.

The current plan:  Two-keyboard-one-screen; two phases of gameplay.  Phase 1 is a side-scrolling racing/shooter, that I envision will pan out like a 2D Diddy Kong Racing.  Phase 2 is a "versus beatemup", whatever that may be.



(thanks to ThePortalGuru for the inspiration)

What if you had to race AND engage in manly brawling... AT THE SAME TIME?

Good show old bean. Sadly I can't lend you my airship because, uh, it's in for repair at the moment. But my inability to access my personal dirigible at this time only heightens my desire to see this game completed, so I can relive the good old days.

I really wish it would stop snowing.  At least on my driveway, anyway.

Some more art!  I think I hit my sketch pretty closely.



Don't worry, he has coat tails - you just can't see them from this angle.

I will prob post some gameplay mockups next.

Gameplay mockup:




The first phase of the duel is an airship race, which I envision will play out like a 2D Diddy Kong Racing.  In addition, each player can yell 19th century insults at each other, in an effort to distract their opponent.  I would like to integrate this into the gameplay somehow, similar to the combat system used in the Monkey Island series.  We will see.

Oh, if anyone wants to donate some 19th century English insults, you are more than welcome.  I was unforunately born a hundred years too late, and don't have an adequate lexicon.

Perhaps taunting boosts a meter, which allows for "Gallant Boosts", or some other similar nonsense?


Also, that's a hilarious insult.

There's some great material in that link, viz.

Quote
BARGAIN. To sell a bargain; a species of wit, much in vogue about the latter end of the reign of Queen Anne, and frequently alluded to by Dean Swift, who says the maids of honour often amused themselves with it. It consisted in the seller naming his or her hinder parts, in answer to the question, What? which the buyer was artfully led to ask. As a specimen, take the following instance: A lady would come into a room full of company, apparently in a fright, crying out, It is white, and follows me! On any of the company asking, What? she sold him the bargain, by saying, Mine a-e.

It's maybe a bit early for Victorians though, who were a bit more upright and prudish than the previous, really quite bawdy, generation Smiley

I hope to see some form of glove slapping, and the "demanding of satisfaction"  Gentleman
The Airship races should be a lot of fun :D I can't wait to play.

Hey man looks great. For my game I was planning to use the Victorian Gentleman style as well though the game play will be very different.
