Early Umihara Kawase footage
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:25:49 PM »
Saw this uploaded on Kiyoshi Sakai's youtube channel. It looks like he had finalized the character design but was looking for a good game idea to go with it.

There's a translation for the video here:

About seven tweets starting from the link above explaining the video.

Sakai posted footage of an x68000 prototype of Umihara Kawase with the rubber fishing line mechanic we all know and love.

Those placeholder textures for everything feel familiar, its exciting seeing levels I recognize. I dislike how slow the enemies are now but I see with respawning enemies it is really hectic when faster. And are those the puff textures on release too? This looks far more like the game we got and I love it, it was solid from such an early state
