What is Project Sugar?

Well, I kind of promised all of you people I would reveal more information regarding this game so here it is.

Project Sugar is a game based on the webcomic "Bittersweet Candy Bowl". The name of the game and its tentative storyline were stated in the previous post, so I won't repeat that; I will instead tell you now what the game consists of.

Bittersweet Candy Brawl is a side-scrolling beat 'em up game, aimed for players between 12 and 20 years old mainly (but it might appeal to people over or under those ages), with an intended rating of T for teen.

In this game, players will play as one of the characters from the BCB series (up to 4 players at a time), and will need to defeat waves of enemies in order to make progress in the levels and the storyline. At the end of each level, the player will face a stronger enemy, in a battle known as a 'Boss fight'.

Every once in a while, the player will meet a branching path, and will have to pick one. The decision taken will affect which level will be tackled next, as well as the storyline and which ending the player will get.

Between levels, the players will be able to spend 'Experience points', in order to upgrade their stats and make their current character stronger. Upgrading stats will also unlock new abilities for that character, including but not limited to parrying, rolling, etc.

To complement the experience of story mode, a few versus modes will be available, where human players will be able to compete against each other. The modes that will be available are yet to be decided.

When story mode has been completed, a higher tier of difficulties will be unlocked, to give the players a chance to go through the game again and explore different possibilities, without making the game too easy due to the character upgrades.

And well... that's pretty much the game's outline.
