What if Bayonetta was made by Raizing/Eighting?

This is pretty amazing. I'd buy it for sure if it was a real game.

masayume (Level 1 Rookie) @ 8/10/2014 12:57

This is so much more than a mockup. It deserves to be a real game.

Reminds me of Guwange.

All I can think of this as is an on-rails shmup with some control over your movement but none over where you're actually going. That would be pretty fun, actually. Maybe I can get someone who can actually program it and someone who can actually design it and.. well, I guess my plan has kinda derailed itself. 5/5.

miascugh (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 5/29/2011 07:34

Such a clever combination. And for some reason I tend to not feel the need to mention technical excellence when it is especially excellent, but that's rather silly if I think about it. So, keep being excellent and let's all be excellent to each other!

aniljp (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/24/2010 07:25

...... Unbelieveable........

Girlbrush (Level 1 Seaman) @ 6/19/2010 07:03

Awesome! =D The first thing I look up when a new Level magazine comes out is the page with your pixel art. Keep it up!

KrypToniTe (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/14/2010 10:48

This looks great! Your color palette is just awesome, and I love the rock texture at the bottom! <3

5/5! And favd for sure!

pkjo (Level 4 Deputy) @ 2/17/2010 18:22

This is amazing! I actually signed up for this webpage because I wanted to comment. I'd love to make a DS Shmup based on Bayonetta... I think I might have a new pet project...

bitswitcher (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 2/14/2010 09:26

 awesome, by thew way, 99 colors, i count :)

Necky (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/14/2010 05:10

That is mindblowing!!! Love the richness of the art style. Fantastic work mate! :D

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 2/13/2010 13:08

mindblowingly epic omfg

Phalcon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/13/2010 12:56

I have this issue of level :P Really nice

junkboy (Level 2 Peon) @ 2/13/2010 12:51

Whoa, I must've hit the sweet spot with this one.. Thanks a bunch you guys!

blueleds (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/12/2010 23:21

 This is the best mock-up I've seen on PJ.  

Walrus (Level 3 Stalker) @ 2/12/2010 08:00

 there is a law in the US goverment that you MUST MAKE THIS FUCKING GAME NOW!!!!!!!!!!!11111

amazing job!

Hapiel_old (Level 1 Intern) @ 2/12/2010 03:14

Awesome mock up! Very energetic!

Calv (Level 7 Assassin) @ 2/12/2010 00:05

Awesome, you should animate it.

OSM (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/11/2010 19:08

Absolutely love this.

matt0 (Level 2 Peon) @ 2/11/2010 16:05

This is one of the best things I've ever seen on here. Gobsmacked.

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 2/11/2010 14:52

Ok.  Now I have to go home and play do-don-pachi!  Awesome!

kevink (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 2/11/2010 14:39

This is quite awesome.. talking about an understatement. 

Mathias (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 2/11/2010 14:19

This is great! Wouldn't change a thing. For those that think it's busy and/or less-than-readible, you have to remember it's an action game mockup - things would be moving around and make themselves far more obvious than are static.

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 2/11/2010 13:59


schrumpfkopf (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/11/2010 12:50

100% - i love every single bit

Blackbeltdude (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 2/11/2010 09:22

Hey, you made it on Kotaku!

Nice job! This mock up looks incredible!

Nemils (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/11/2010 03:50

Looks like bests 90's Arcade Shooters ! I want to insert coin !

Manupix (Level 11 Godfather) @ 2/11/2010 03:28

Just amazing. 0.0

A bit busy as far as composition and readability go. There's probably too much of the shooting stuff for the graphic efficiency of the piece.

Carnivac (Level 8 Shodan) @ 2/10/2010 17:46

Looks a lot more fun than than the actual bayonetta game was to play. The style of your mock up just looks far more appealing than the vulgar style they used in the game (not counting the obvious differences in 2D and 3D).  nice work.


I'd lower the brightness of the second brightest red on the dragons main body pieces though. I find the two brightest look too similar.

Tuna Unleashed (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 2/10/2010 17:04

i clicked this and my jaw literally dropped. great job dude

elend (Level 1 Rookie) @ 2/10/2010 15:09

Man, that's gorgeous. Great idea, exceptionally executed. Love it.

Robinhood (Level 9 Boss) @ 2/10/2010 14:32

Epic dragon :D  Nicejob on the sectioon and scales.

Is this a mockup? xD

Manjaman (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/10/2010 14:28

Very nice colors, background, movements and sprites.

shmupstick (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 2/10/2010 13:53

Kick a**e gorgeous!

Phones (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/10/2010 13:53


Stickman (Level 6 SWAT) @ 2/10/2010 13:38

...if it was made by Raizing/Eight it would have medal collection, camouflaged bullets (Battle Garegga Style) and you'd be suiciding every sindle minute to keep the difficulty down! Which means it would be an instant buy for me!

Damn - this design is so sweet!

Elk (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 2/10/2010 13:38

Looks quite interesting :) nice work

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 2/10/2010 11:37
