Nov 27, 2012 (Guildford, UK) —Exactly one week left now in Kung Fu Superstar’s Kickstarter campaign and the team at Kinesthetic are starting their final push. Their most popular reward tiers are now significantly discounted making this the ideal time for potential backers to show the project their support. More than that, the team are continuing their trend of releasing content heavy demos and unveiling more details surrounding the project.

“Kickstarter democratises not just the funding of projects, but the whole development process and we really want to embrace that” said Kostas Zarifis, Game Director on Kung Fu Superstar. “In our latest major video update we wanted to take the opportunity to not just show our backers and potential backers more of the exciting gameplay in Kung Fu Superstar, but also how we are planning to open a window to our development process in the months to come.”

Their new video features a fun look into how the team went about creating one of their early gameplay prototypes and wraps up with an exciting gameplay demo.

About Kung Fu Superstar™: Kung Fu Superstar™ is the world’s first motion control enabled action game, where the fighting employs real martial arts techniques. Players will relive the epic journey of Danny Cheng, a young aspiring martial artist, as he rises through the ranks of international fame and stardom. Aided by his trusted Sifu, Danny will discover the secrets of Kung Fu and become the most popular martial arts stuntman Hollywood has ever known.

In a ground-breaking rethink of fighting games, players will use their full body or a controller to learn authentic martial arts techniques and level up Danny’s fighting abilities, as they improve their own knowledge of Kung Fu. Players then put their skills to the test on the movie set, where Danny takes part in dramatic fight choreographies and performs in explosive action sequences. With multiple movie sets and plots to explore, colourful characters to be met along the way, Danny’s own overarching storyline, as well as a platform for learning real martial arts in a fun and engaging way, Kung Fu Superstar™ will open up a world of possibilities to players of every background.
