So about a decade ago I began my journey in Game Development with the goal of creating a Ghostbusters game (under the name SadJason). I've done a lot of thing since then like serving in the US Navy and getting a degree in Game Development...but I never completed a Ghostbusters game. I'm looking to correct that.

So starting from the ground up, I'm developing a top-down action game based on The Real Ghostbusters. I'll post updates as often as I can. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

What a blast from the past! I have some memory of the stuff you did as SadJason. Looking forward to how this turns out but my interest is peaked.

Looks like your using Chrono Trigger sprites as a basis? PM me if you need help with sprite editing some sprites.

The sprites actually started off as an edit of Alien Syndrome for the NES then I was inspired Magic of Scheherazade so I reworked the heads. I'm actually thinking of dropping some of the colors from the Character sprites to bring them more inline with the NES inspiration. Thoughts?

Keep the colors. Unless you plan on having them start off in tan suits and get colored uniforms as they grab power ups.

I like the music. It could loop better.

I kinda wish you could shoot diagonally. I imagine they'll be upgrades or different weapon pick ups as the build progresses?

Are you supposed to be able to get outside of the map? There's a book case in the top right corner of the house I just walked through (you can shoot it too, I see) and I got on the other side of the walls and walked around the map.

I didn't get hit my first play and killed everything in the house- I guess nothing is supposed to happen, yet? I reset and died on purpose to see what happened. The slimed animation is nice. I look forward to seeing more ghosts/creatures. The thing in the shrubs was cool :cool:

Kind of reminds me of Zombies Ate My Neighbors (loved that game). Keep going, man. I'm sure there's a lot of ideas you have yet to implement. Seems like a good foundation to build on.
