Zero Dimension is a small independent studio made up of passionate fighting game fans, and they’re working on their very own 2D fighter that could give the veteran franchises a run for their money.
Titled simply Cerebrawl, the new 2D fighter boasts hand-drawn visuals+animations, and tight gameplay. Featured above, you can view some gameplay of the latest build the game is running in.
Cerebrawl is described as a 2-versus-2 tag-team fighting game for PC, and its being developed completely independently, via fan donations and purchasing early copies of the game. For now, the game is in a prototype phase, and has the current features implemented:
- 2v2 4-player gameplay
- 80% of Helen
- All of Helen’s normals
- Special attacks
- Level 1 super attack
- All attack animations are colored, shaded and in their final state
- Super meter
- Assist meter
- Hard tagging
One of the standout features in any good fighting game is an addictive soundtrack, and boy does Cerebrawl have an awesome soundtrack already, via DJ and composer 2 Mello. You can get a listen below:
While you can play with one or two players in training, you can also play with up to four players in competitive mode. There’s a whole host of features planned, including: throws, air-dashing, command normals, wall slams and ground bounces, 7 or more new characters, online play, stage breaks, and 1v1 or 1v2 modes.
