Way of the Stick - .03-alpha

Olawale Hassan (oahassan)



Way of the Stick is a stick figure fighting game with a built in animation editor. You can create your own moves and export/import them in movesets. I've opened up the source, but you'll find that it's pretty disorganized right now.

Latest Gameplay Video


A lot of updates in this release:
 - Local Multiplayer
 - Adjustable AI difficulty
 - Health Bars
 - Particle Engine for smoke effects
 - Trail effects
 - Camera shake on strong hits
 - Choose the color of your character

Here's the latest game play video. I'm still working out the recording situation so the video quality is still poor.

I can't figure out which *.py file loads the game.

Right now I'm working on making a solid multi-player. So, look forward to that in the next month or so. Then I'll double back to think more about what the single player should be like. Thanks for the encouragement!

Great! The inverse kinematics inside the editor rocks. Hope you will enhance it with a online mode and a ranking system ;-)
The game self could be improved by points and/or player-health, moreover a soloplayer mode containing many levels would be fun.
Nevertheless, the software is great and has lots of potential.

Sorry about that. I've changed the source location to point to a tar file that contains everything necessary to run the game.

I got this:

File "", line 6, in <module>
from wotsprot.rencode import dumps, loads, serializable
ImportError: No module named wotsprot.rencode

Hope you can fix it.
