Hullo there, I have a somewhat large request for a Devil May Cry 3-ish engine for an action game I'm making. Here's what I need to to include. (Don't worry about the sprites)
-Aiming should follow the mouse, but it should be a platformer. Heli Attack 3-ish. Left click = fire dual pistols, not automatic. Instant hitting bullets and support for hitting enemies would be nice. Right click = swing massive sword in direction of mouse.
-Some kind of "rotate-torso-of-character-when-aiming-up-and-down" engine, so that he always looks at the mouse and aims at it too.
-Some kind of combo system for the sword would be nice. It doesn't have to be anything flashy, just a basic 3-hit and such.
-Support for attacking while jumping (obviously). A "smash-down-on-enemy" kind of attack with the sword while jumping would be helpful, as well as an uppercut, but you don't have to.
-Some kind of enemy support. Such as, collision support for shooting and slashing the enemies.
-AI would be really nice but you don't have to make it if it's too hard.
Don't worry about the sprites, just make them crappy but understandable (stick figures anyone?). I don't need the engine to be "exclusive", if you make it, feel free to submit it to the DC and use it yourself.
Basicly, I want an engine that could support DMC3-ish gameplay, such as crazy fast action and lots and lots of shooting and slashing. Thanks a ton if you help out, your name will be mentioned first in the credits as well as any email/advertisement you want.
Dude, no one is going to make an engine for you when you signed up 2 days ago; and have absolutely nothing to show. Your best bet is to try to make an engine like that yourself, using the Search DC Functions, you should be able to find multiple articles on these topics.
