About the Game

What is Smack Studio?

Smack Studio is a fighting game with powerful built-in animation tools for endless creation! Transform 2D sprites into 3D animations using our new animation technology, and bring your characters from concept to playable creation in a fraction of the time thanks to automation tools that speed up the process. Take your creations to the stage and battle with up to 8 players, or export your animations for use in your own projects!

Battle mode – current features

  • 8 player offline VS
  • Take on friends or the CPU players with competitive, fast-paced gameplay, ultra-smooth game feel, and high combo potential
  • Unleash devastating ultra attacks of your own creation (ultras for our default roster will be designed with balance in mind for competitive play)
  • Play using any DirectInput or XInput controller (even GameCube controllers, via the MayFlash USB adapter or similar product)

Character editor – current features

  • Create pixel art animations with 3D depth and rotation, using a new approach that maps 2D images to bones in a 3D skeleton
  • Take a character from concept to fully playable character in less than 30 mins, by using one of our templates (or characters created by the community! Yay, teamwork is awesome!)
  • Animate frame-by-frame to add polish and customizations
  • Create custom projectiles and special effects
  • Add functionality using actions added directly to your animations- a form of simple but effective coding!
  • Export your animations for use in any project you like- we hold no legal claim over any IP created in Smack Studio, and we’d love for artists to create, share, monetize, and do what they please with it! 🙂

Additional features coming in the full game (not yet available):

  • 2-4 player online VS with rollback netcode (crucial for a lag-free online experience)
  • Stage editor with voxel editing tools, custom textures, and beautiful lighting effects to transform your scene
  • Online content exchange allowing you to share your creations with the world, and choose from an endless supply of community creations
  • Expanded 1 player features and new game modes- maybe even custom game modes made by you!
