I'm actually finishing the network synchronization algorithm, so that even with a small lag (even wifi got some) you don't get a messed up sync.
That is the very last bit of work to achieve before release (and is actually quite advanced in completion), so I'm still very confident in a January release

Another news : as soon as Unity supports Windows Phone (= "soon"), Kinetic Damage will also be released on that platform (depending on Microsoft validation, but I guess there's no difference with Apple/Google).
I got my hand on a Windows Phone (Nokia Lumia 920), and the OS is a real beast, I really want KD to land on that ecosystem.

Any chance some of us here can get our hands on a early copy of the game upon submission? I'm dying to see it in action for real esp since it looks mega fluid in the gameplay trailer!

Hi Defre,

I'm actually unable to deliver any copy before submission, but don't worry, things are coming really fast. I guess I will send it to Apple within 2 weeks.
(This is an estimation, though, but I can't see why it would take any longer)

You will also be able to test it for free with 2 martial arts as soon as it hits the store (free version got 2 martial arts, quick matches and 1 level).

I'm super glad to see such an enthusiasm
Although I really want to make sure the version you will all got will be the most perfect possible gameplay I can put out, without a single bug.
I'm actually working hard (yep, on Christmas day), on network responsivity, so there's not a single visual desync. Works good so far.
Network syncing is a tense thing to work on for fighting games, as every milisecond counts

Why would you want to put this in your stomach?

Hi guys !

Some news, indeed :

I actually had a super hard time setting up a proper synchronization algorithm for multiplayer. Syncing two players in such a fast paced genre as fighting games is a pain, believe me
So after several works and reworks on a good sync model, I ended up with a very good news for you :

I ended up building a network syncing model that is (partly) inspired from GGPO.
That means Online ready.

Right now, like I mentionned earlier, I don't have the resources to support a full online experience, but that news means practically no work for me whenever I will decide to create an Online feature.

I'm now entering the multiplayer test phase with friends, which should go smoothly. I'll post some videos
After that, I'll be packing up the product, and send it to Apple.

Cheers

edit : as a reminder, creating a videogame is not an easy thing when you want to "make it right" (= zero bug, proper experience). Whatever the time it has to take, I won't release it until it is "right". But this shouldn't be that long now, and you're still welcome to ask for some progress
