Awesome video, nice work!  And as someone who is also not that great at fighting games, I'm going to second imgibbon's suggestion regarding Blade Strangers.  There's not a huge amount of story, but definitely more than the first three games combined, haha.

Yeah they seem to have done a bit more than purely just tile editing, and have actually moved some stuff around. If I can figure out how to do that it'll really open things up for us heh.

Hrm, that is tough about the title screen...



This hack reuses two letters (A and M) twice each like Dig Dug, but they're in different positions and have different widths than the D and G. Maybe it would be worth giving it a look in yychr or a hex editor?
It doesn't seem as if any other hacks or translations of Dig Dug available on rh.net have made changes to the D and G, so this Yamame hack is the only precedent for that.

If that doesn't work, maybe I could vertically fit the kanji in the space of I and U...



Not sure where I'd need to look to grab the font though, but if you can point me in the right direction I can make an attempt for you
Try searching for bmp, gif, or png files in the Program Files (x86) -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> (game name) folders. I doubt they would have the font nicely laid out like that, but if it's there, we're in luck.

So after some testing it does indeed reuse the D and the G for both DiG and DUG, so that makes things a little trickier.

And I do have the games on Steam! Not sure where I'd need to look to grab the font though, but if you can point me in the right direction I can make an attempt for you

No worries about work! You take all the time you need.
It's always so neat to see sprites I made put into a game. ^-^

Here's some items for Kawase to collect. There were so many cool things I could've added that I honestly had trouble picking what to use.I may add in more if any of these didn't come out right.

In the meantime, I'll do the life backpack... and then I'll play around with ground tiles. Let me know how the logo is stored in the game so I can know how to tackle that.

Also, do you (or anyone else, if anyone would like to pitch in) have the Steam versions of any of the UK games? Apparently no one online has ripped the font, and it would be easiest to get it straight from the PC versions' files, if possible. If not, I'll just rip it myself from the SNES game.

So I managed to track down that the final two chapters not compiled in the tankoban are in the October and November 1995 issues of Comic Burger
info here:

I have no idea how to actually get ahold of those in order to do scans though.

Such wonderful spritework as always! Always a treat to see what you've come up with ^_^

To the left are some carrots, since I couldn't get the fish looking good in such a small sprite.
Maybe a fish head would work? hehheh

As for the logo, will need to see if each letter has individual tiles in the assets or if they're reusing the D and G between Dig and Dug respectively, as that will complicate things...

Wonderful video, I enjoyed learning tidbits I didn't know. Had never heard of Densen before and am now sad lol

I'd recommend seeing if you can turn down the difficulty on Blade Strangers and going through at least the main four Umihara characters' story modes, as it's probably the most characterization they've ever gotten lol.
