Ghosts n DJs Video Game

Ghost producers have been a very popular topic lately ever since EDM fans have learned that a majority of songs these days aren’t even produced by the people whose names are on the song name.

Long, Long ago, There was a world.. with no ghost producers. Fast forward to 2011 and signs of the first ghost producers arise.

Dr Kucho’s new video game Ghosts N DJs puts all of this into an enjoyable game.

The kickstarter campaign summarizes the video game as:

The game is inspired on Ghosts’n Goblins, the best side scroller ever. Yes, I said the best and this is not open to debate! You’re going to feel the precise movement and playability of those old arcades cause I took special care on each of the details to bring back the classic gaming of that glorious age.

You are Me! meaning you’re Dr. Kucho!, DJ and producer since 1993. You are on a crusade to destroy the hordes of fake DJ’s taking over the world by dominating the music scene from the top positions, not because of their musical talent but because of a magical power they brought from Averno. This evil power is called money.

Fight the evil DJs invasion on this GnG inspired side scroller. They came to take over the world and punish our ears to death.

The story of Dr. Kucho!, a real DJ and music producer who fights against fake artists that became starts because of their money. A game inspired on Ghosts n’ Goblins, keeping the retro style but fighting the monsters of today.

The game is inspired on Ghosts’ n Goblins, probably the best side scroller ever. Yes, I said the best and this is not open to debate! You’re going to feel the precise movement and playability of those old arcades cause i took special care on each of the details to bring back the classic gaming of that glorious age.

Starting with the display picture: this is not a new school pixel game with perfect square pixels, I have created a system to emulate the way the pixels are displayed on an old CRT arcade cabinet screen. But you’ll need be under full screen mode to appreciate it properly.

You are Me! meaning you’re Dr. Kucho!, DJ and producer since 1993. You are on a crusade to destroy the hordes of fake DJ’s taking over the world by dominating the music scene from the top positions, not because of their musical talent but because of a magical power they brought from Averno. This evil power is called … money.

The mechanics of the game are simple: a 2D retro shot ’em up side scroller, enough said (but mixed with humoristic cinematic clips mostly to criticize the current EDM scene).

The weapons for now are musical supports such as vinyls, CDRom, pen drives and tapes you can throw to spread some justice around. It’s very important to mention that the control work already on PS3, PS4, Xbox360, and compatible controllers. You can also play it with the keyboard or a combination of keyboard and mouse for those who like WASD control. But as Doc M. Brown said: “where we’re going, we don’t need keyboards or mouses or any of that shhh…” (this quote might not be totally literal).

The game has two levels so far, it didn’t grow up much faster because I’m focusing on the engine of fight system, IA of the enemies, multiple options on how the enemies show up on screen and all those things that actually make the game a fun one. Once these complex parts work fine, I’ll start expanding the game’s world.

It will be available first for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, but I’m making the code mobile friendly so it can be also exported to Android and iOS.

Paris Sheraton: Someone asked me what was the most difficult part of creating this game. Well, the answer is to think what would be a proper attack for this enemy and not because of a lack of imagination but because… is there really anything this girl can do besides telling other person to attack you? (which she actually does when she is on ground) Finally, taking the risk of being not too much credible, Paris flies on a broom and sends evil kisses (but this will be probably changed for throwing chihuahua ).

At the beginning I tested some of the tracks of my dance album “The return of the king” on the game, but it didn’t work, at least not on the way they are produced , I might do special version of some of them adapted to fit in the game but once thing is for sure: they won’t have a dance beat. In any case , if you are into dance music, you might be interested on getting the album , and that would be an excellent way to support this project so we have included it in one of the rewards.

So, to feel the game action properly, I made a single orchestral track to play in the first two levels provisionally. Each level will have it’s own dedicated music but is still not decided if they are going to be orchestral or retro synths made. I love both styles and I am experienced music producer so making the tunes won’t be a problem, thats why i decided not to worry about this for now.

The sound effects although, are already being carefully produced, I consider the sound FX a very important part of the game action feel, and as I aim for a retro arcade feel, the sounds are 100% retro.

Independency !!! I work in the music industry for more than 20 years now, so I know the value of this word. Many music producers don’t do the music they want or like, mostly the ones that release on a big record company. Meaning: If you want this company to release your music you have to make the music the music company think is better, and what is better for them? they are not artists, nor music lovers at all, so obviously, for them, better music means profitable music. And here is where all the art , love and quality goes away! …

If you think about this for a second… Music producers are supposed to make music for music lovers all around the world, but in reality they are making the music for a single person behind a desk at the record company office … how sad!

I have never accepted that fact, so i had to create my own record label to produce the music I wanted.

Now going back to video games, I’m not expert on the gaming business, but i feel like its going to be very similar to music … I don’t want nobody cutting out my creativity and talent just because they think more money means better.

So, thank you !!!!!!

thank you kickstarter, and than you all backers for bringing the projects you love into reality, and to allow creators to make there dreams come true … this might sounds like too forced or cheese … but it’s not!

All the team would appreciate your help by sharing this project with all the people you might think could be interested!
