I have gotten pretty addicted to Patapon 3, and i got curious to see if i could recreate it. I decided to start small and go with the rythm and getting it precise, it became so precise to the original that i knew i should go all the way with this.

Lil video for you all

I really hope i can squeeze all the classes in including the dark heroes. but i have absoultly no idea on how I'm going to do the logic to determine statistcs for the classes such as HP, Attack power, etc. And I also hope to rebalance the classes to make them all fun to play as. Getting this to be multiplayer friendly for 4 players should be pretty easy. But when I looked around LBP for some level as inspiration whether boss designs or artwork, it seemed to be rather slim, oh well. Any ideas or even if you would like to contribute is greatly appreciated

Thought it might be worth mentioning to everyone here what I'm trying to do, I'll try to update with more videos when i make enough progress,

As much as I dislike patapon 3, this looks really cool. Though I question how 4 players would work considering everyone would hear the various drum beats.
Maybe if it doesn't work you can try a single player one.

I haven't fully tested it yet but i think how multiplayer will work is the sackplayers on the controllinators will be a bit above the controlling uberhero, and the various beats played when inputting your drums will be set to local sounds and placed next to them, (I'll have to use game cameras, here's where i need to test), if this works the only time 1 player will hear another players drum inputs is if their uberheroes are right next to each other.
