Hey guys, I was just wondering has anyone seen this game? It was in a steam update 2 weeks ago. It looks awesome

Basically, this is what it's about.

Imagine having a Kung Fu Fight with string puppets, except you don’t have to worry about getting the strings tangled up, and you don’t have to have a kung fu fight.

You control the characters on screen with the mouse – there are no pre-scripted animations in the game – it’s all up to you – to walk, you have to literally pick up one foot, then place it in front of the other.

Sounds tricky maybe, but it doesn’t take long before you're spinning through the air like a Russian gymnast.

This means you get to create your own style, and can act out whatever you feel like, and of course, if you really feel like it, you can have a fight.

It’s about Chi power.

If you want to view a video to see what it's like, click here, (100 megs) (http://personal.lionhead.com/mhealey/rdkf_gdc.avi) It's quite a big file, but it's worth it. Also, you can make your own skins, do minigames, multiplayer [8 player] single player with acted out cut-scenes, which poke fun at old Kung-fu movies.

Also Pczone had a 2 page exclusive about it, have a read! (http://personal.lionhead.com/mhealey/pczone_clip3.jpg)

Also, VALVe is distrubuting this game through steam, after that demonstration [the video i put a link to] a worker from VALVe asked him about it, the next day he was flown to the USA and gave Gabe Newall a private presentation, and Mark Healey the maker of this game who works at Lionhead, was made a deal.

Basically it'll be done in a week or two, hes sending it off to VALVe tomorrow. It'd be awesome to see some of you guys on this game.

Remember the official site, www.ragdollkungfu.com and check out some of the videos. I hope some of you buy it. ;)

:xp: Heh, just trying to help the game get off it's feet when it comes out! Oh, and just to let you know the game will only cost about £10-15 pound.

Edit : My 4,500th post going to marketing. Figures.

Downloading the video. It does look pretty cool, and is a pretty neat concept - not sure I want to spend 15 quid on it, though...

I remember reading at one of the first announcements about rag doll that it was a project for fun and would be free... Doesn't look that interesting at all for a purchase

My god. Does no one here like original games? Innovation? A bit of fun? :indif:

Original games and innovation are sweet, but only if they look entertaining. That just looks dumb. "HAR! I click his leg and drag he moves!"

It looks dumb? Then every other game released must be in a special ed class.

Indeed, I'm not sure what it is you see in this game that makes you think it looks so exciting. Honestly, it's not that I'm closed to new ideas for games, I love innovation, I love video games. this just looks...lame is probably the best word. It also looks like it might be entertaining for a total of 3 minutes or so...

I will pass.

Oh I'll deffinately play the demo, I'm not against the game in general, it's just from what I've seen i'm against paying money for it.

So you are saying that a game developed by Mark Healey who doesn't even work at valve should come with the silver package even though it is in no way related to the silver package or Half Life 2?
Wow.
14.99 is damn cheap for a game this good, i'd pay 40.
