'Okinawa Rush' Kickstarter Campaign Successful

Okinawa Rush is an intensely fluid beat-'em-up, 2-D side-scrolling fighting game, inspired by the by the retro 16-bit era with its classic late-'80s/'90s arcade style design and gameplay experience.

A tale of power, greed, sorrow, and vengeance... A ruthless army of ninja known as the 'Black Mantis' clan has come to Okinawa to loot, pillage and kill anyone that gets in their way. Above all else, they are searching for the legendary training scroll of Hiro Yashima who has honed his martial skill to a supernatural level, summoning flame and sound to vanquish his foes. He returns home one night to find his children missing, his wife slain, and a note in her bloody hand.

The core of Okinawa Rush is fast, intense combat with a unique "parry everything" system - you can block projectiles, smash traps and parry every boss attack if you time the input correctly! Doing so increases your "rage bar" which can be used to unleash a fearsome "kia stomp", which destroys everything around the player; including, sometimes the ground and scenery - opening up hidden areas. There is an "edit dojo" feature, where you can create your own training room and furnish it with ornaments bought or found within the main game. Placing the items in certain patterns will unlock "feng shui" bonuses which increase your stats beyond their natural potential. We have included several mini-games in which the player can train their character, including a karate kata area stylized in a dance rhythm game.

Okinawa Rush succeeded with its Kickstarter campaign, 472 backers helped us raise  £10,745 to help bring this project to life!
