    Hi Ben,

    I just contacted you via the web form you have on your website. The short summary is that we are looking to use a third-party fighting game engine to speed up development of a game we are working on. Check your inbox! :)

    Hey toto, thanks for coming by :]
    Based on iOS rating and reviews, Kinetic Damage has been a critical success, but didn't make it enough to financially support a quick evolution like I wished it would. I'm still working on it, but not 7/7 anymore due to inevitable time constraints.

    Now for the news :
    * I will submit an update this week that will crank up the difficulty a bit more and support iOS Game Controller, and after that will still continue to work on multiplayer.
    * multiplayer's future is still uncertain at the moment, for backend reasons. I need top notch servers to support such a quick action, and the only financially viable solution I got right now is to use Apple gamecenter, which has been told to be horribly slow.
    * I'm planning to release Kinetic Damage on Android in the coming monthes, in a Full Free version, supported by ads. iOS will follow such a model shortly after.
    * This summer, I will start to contact some studios to see if any is interested to pump up the project to a higher ground. One year after release seems to be a good momentum.

    Anyway, Android is still planned to be released indeed :]
    Cheers

    This is exactly what I am doing for mine! I have a larger project i was working on, but to quickly establish myself, i decided to build a simpler game first!

    And Honestly, this REEKS of awesomeness! I am actually, ironically, building a fighter as well, but mine takes a slightly different concept: it's going 3D instead of the two-dimensional plane that a lot of fighting games have (Like Super Smash Bros. Brawl, DeadOrAlive, and those arcade hits of the 90s)

    And good luck on porting to consoles! I am hoping to port to console someday too... :D And i agree with coding multi-player: my code's a monster!

    EDIT: I will say one thing though: my "smaller" project is the brawling game... :D

    Upon examining your situation I would possibly suggest:

    1. a spin off game with the same fighters, just new backgrounds and textures. Give some "edition" title or whatever and tweak the mechanics slightly. Basically a new flavour.

    2. Make it free, but watching a full screen ad with Unity ads could unlock a new fighter. This should only occur every few hours and could unlock abilities as well. Generally people watch a vid ad to unlock a bit more. See the unity crossy road blog posting for more on this business model.

    This could be rather successful as a free fighting franchise in this manner, there is a gap in the market for it. Not for paid in an era of big boys :)

    Been a while since I didn't connect ! I just took some kind of gamedev vacation :)
    Anyway, just to announce that this week, after 3 years of release, I'm permanently offering Kinetic Damage to anyone by setting the price to free ! Hope you'll enjoy :)
