Catfight: Samudai Reveals 2D Arena Duels

Feline samurai showdown


With games like Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and TowerFall, we live in a golden age of same-screen 2D melee arena murderfun. Let's keep an eye on Samudai then, starting with the very first video developer Geek Sloth Games have released, which shows a pre-alpha build.

Samudai sees two cats leaping about, striking and dodging to try to knock each other off the screen. And oh my, check out that Japanese woodblock print-y style.

Geek Sloth explain:

Samudai is a fast paced action game where the objective is to knock the other player out of the level or into dangers. Players can run, jump, dodge, and clash with their opponent to get the upper hand. Both players continually try to push their opponent to their side of the screen and move up to their respective end stages.

While this first video is clearly from an early build, and the action's perhaps a little unclear to a spectator (do they not get hurt at all?), I'm certainly keen to have more games that'll make people laugh and cuss together playing shoulder-to-shoulder. Geek Sloth say they hope to release a demo "in the not too distant future."
