Some crazy people took the parts of the VF2 PC game and using a “Make Your Own Fighting Game” engine called M.U.G.E.N. threw in Homer and Peter Griffin! Also note the Sega mascots in the character select screen. Video uploaded by SonicX14 but listed as : “Lion Rafale’s Great Wall Mugen Location Test” – amazing what you can find on youtube!
I want to play this!!
Wikipedia tells me that: “M.U.G.E.N is a freeware 2D fighting game engine designed by Elecbyte, written in C with the Allegro library. The engine was originally released in July 17, 1999. Beta versions of it were made to work on DOS, Linux and Windows platforms, distributed through their website or to donors via email. With the release of the Linux version, support for DOS ceased.
The engine allows anyone to create characters, background stages and other game objects through interpreted text files, graphics, and sound compilations. It supports various types of audio formats such as MP3, ADX, OGG and MIDI as background music during gameplay or at other points such as an introduction or the select screen. The engine allows for most of the same type of functionality found in most any commercial 2D fighting games, up to and including close recreation of those games’ characters and gameplay. While the engine is set up primarily for fighting game development, several other game types have been developed using it, including shooter and platformer style games.”
Also check out Mugen Infantry they seem to be re-writing the fighting game genre one title at a time!!!
