Last week, we were introduced to Rokko Chan, a charming Mega Man clone that features a female Blue Bomber. Prompted by the game's success and cult following, developer King has graciously released a pair of goodies you may want to check out.
The official Rokko Chan art book (sampled above) is available for your consumption on this page. Inside, you'll find an abundance of images from Rokko Chan's development. There's some conceptual designs, 3D renderings, sprites, and even a few kooky surprises thrown in. Unfortunately, the 22-page book is entirely flash-based. A high resolution PDF version is not readily available at this time. Even so, it's a delight to behold. UPDATE: Here's a rip, courtesy of GeminiSaint!
If you fancied Rokko Chan's excellent chiptune soundtrack, you'll be pleased to know the soundtrack has gone live. Grab it here and typed the word "rokko" into the blank field at the top, and press the button directly underneath. The page should open a link to download the soundtrack. If that fails after five seconds, click the link that reads "こちら".
Enjoy, folks! And if you haven't played Rokko Chan yet... well, what are you waiting for? Give it a spin here!
Thanks for the tip, Jeff!
Look at how swiftly this fangame is going. It may be unofficial but christ, it sure seems like it's something bigger what with all this. I love it. Dunno about this new blogger layout though, lol. Will take a couple days to get used to.ReplyDelete
Kinda wish the "art book" was a little bit more high res, but I can't complain. If you know how to save the .swf file, you get to have a handy little stylish art book in Flash format.ReplyDelete
Robot Guile and Zangief!ReplyDelete
Is it just me, or are some of the images of Rokko Chan...suggestive?ReplyDelete
N-not that I'm complaining.
I like the success of Rokko Chan. Personally, I'm hoping for a 2.ReplyDelete
Is it just me, or is there a new layout? O_O
I extracted all the pages from the Flash file and put them in a more convenient zip file.ReplyDelete
Here's the link:
Wow I'm really impressed by this. I wonder if it IS actually one of the capcom staff or Inafune's team secretely working on this.... lolReplyDelete
Watched a youtube vid of a level last night.ReplyDelete
The game is really well done, I'm impressed. The main 6 stages had a nice balance of difficulty, and hoorah for the dash!
Me: "Hmm, what's up with this art of the plant robot masteKYAAAAAAAA" *nosebleed*
Is the site down for anyone else?ReplyDelete
Yep; it's down.ReplyDelete
It's getting a lot of coverage from a number of sites, so I imagine it's just a bandwidth thing.
Yeah a Loli Mega woman, my dream comes true finally!! And the art of Rokko is awesome too, very suggestive.ReplyDelete
Creepy artwork is creepy.ReplyDelete
music is good though
I really want an English translation of this content. I really, really do. If only so I know the names of those two evil so-and-sos in Mad Stage 1! Raaaaage!! DXReplyDelete
Off-topic: Hey, Protodude! Did you blog get an upgrade when I wasn't looking? I notice each article has like/share buttons now and some of the fonts changed. The layout seems ever-so-slightly different, too. Not to mention, some people submitting comments from Blogger now have an avatar by their name in the comments page.
Yep! I've been tinkering with a refreshed format for a while now. Went live last night.
ok hockey man.....that's not the way you hold a hockey stick.....sigh....I know that hockey is not a popular sport in Japan but you know Miss or Mr illustrator....type google.com, hockey player and there's plenty of hockey player photos out there....ReplyDelete
@GeminiSaint There's only 12 pages in your zip file and the post said there's 22 pages...are some missing?ReplyDelete
12 files should be correct, as there's two pages to a file, excluding the front and back cover. The virtual art book actually opens and closes like a real book, see, so the page count goes:
1, 2-3, 4-5, etc. etc., 22
Is anyone having trouble reaching the actual Rokko Chan website? I keep getting 404 results from all of the King-Soukutu pages.ReplyDelete
@Joseph: The names of the Mad Sisters are Fransiska (silver) and Lancea (gold). The KE in Lancea's name is pronounced as a CE instead.ReplyDelete
