Game description

"The game’s three unique areas, suitably named ‘Wind’, ‘Fire’ and ‘Water’, have been painstakingly created using ancient Japanese art as a point of reference and look absolutely gorgeous in motion." -[Critical Indie Gamer]

Kiai Resonance is a 2D versus fighting game for Windows.

You take part in multiplayer samurai combats where one hit off-guard is fatal, and several challenges to perfect your skills. The player can change his katana position at any time to adjust to his opponent's, creating a mind game where you have to anticipate his next attack.

The graphics are attempting to restore the simple aesthetics of traditional Japanese prints by taking some pictorial elements of its great masters, while imbuing it with violence that characterized the confrontations.

Among the available game modes are included the classic one vs. one, either alone against the AI, two on the same screen, or online, as well as various mini games to test our samurai skills.

The game supports current gamepads, and online play with ranking system.

Reviews for Kiai Resonance

Lacking in Content

Kiai Resonance plays similar to Bushido Blade in that you die in one hit. Unfortunately it pales in comparison to Bushido Blade because in that game you could take out someone's limb to give you an advantage in battle. In Kiai, a single contact with your opponent is an instant kill. The combat is pretty deep as there are three stances you can fight in. The game is challenging because one mistake will kill you. There's a single player mode which is just fighting one on one against the computer. They aren't bad, but a human is much more challenging and unpredictable. There's only a few levels, 3 or 4 tops, so you fight in the same areas over and over. It gets old fast. You can only move left and right so there's even less variety there in the combat and movement. There's also only 2 playable characters. There's no unlockables, no extra levels, no extra characters, nothing. This game will last you a few minutes if you play solo or an hour or so if you play with a friend. What's here is fun, but it's hard to recommend. You'd be better off playing Bushido Blade if you want this kind of game, but if don't have access to a Playstation, then Kiai isn't a bad game to play instead.

Can be a good game

This game is still in early phase, alpha, and lacks content. Right now it is a very basic but enjoyable experience. The graphics are old Japanese style and are great and immersive, while music is good too. The levels and game is a short and it can crash sometimes. The character is also not properly set to wak and does so awkwardly. I would say, good 2D fighting game that can be developed into something really enjoyable and addicting to play. Right now, it is a 67/100.

Still in kind of an alpha version

Even though it's in 2D, it's a must have for every samurai fan. What makes me think positive about this is the fact that it's been made by Steam's community so I still have some hope in it. I just wish that while walking, the fighter's legs would move as they should (they move, but really buggy). Sadly, the game lacks of content and all opponents look exactly the same and for all I know use the same AI. There's no kind of a story that you would find in a traditional fighting type game. For an alpha game, this would be in Top 10, but as for the final release, well, it needs a lot more.
