Frequently Asked Questions:
What’s Chaos Sisters?
Chaos Sisters is a 2d Action Beat’em up game set in a lighthearted high fantasy world, where you play as two demons defending their home from a group of heroes. Read about it here!
Why are you doing this project?
I’m a Graphic Designer who has always been interested in game development and hand drawn animation, so I started this project to learn more about those things and get more stuff for my portfolio. I have learned much about programming and animation in the past year, and I’m sure I will learn much more before the project is over!
Despite being initially just for portfolio, this project was going forward so smoothly that I decided to try to turn it into a real game.
When will the game come out?
Don’t expect an release date announcement any time soon.
How much will it cost?
It’s way too early to state prices, hopefully not too much.
What Platforms will the game release on?
PC only. I will look into console releases after the game is otherwise ready, no promises.
So you are doing this game by yourself? That’s a lot of work.
Besides sound and music, currently yes. However, I have taken a lot of measures to make sure the game stays small and short, and doesn’t turn into an overblown eternity project.
I always wanted to try out traditional animation, and have huge respect for games with 2D animation, primarily fighting games.
What other games do you use for inspiration?
Here’s the most important ones:
- Beat’em up (or brawler) genre, special mentions:
- Streets of Rage 2
- D&D: Chronicles of Mystara
- Vanillaware games: Odin Sphere, Muramasa: The Demon Blade, Dragon’s Crown
- Metroidvania genre, special mentions:

How far along is the production?
It’s going really well, the first stage is ready and playable from start to finish. both playable characters are also complete!
Can I preorder or support the project?
Thanks, but no. I have no current plans for accepting payments before the game is ready. If you like what you see, the best way to support is by following me on twitter, retweeting and liking my stuff, and giving honest comments/critique/suggestions.
Wasn’t the game called Succubus Sisters?
In 5.8.2020 I decided to change the name to Chaos Sisters.
Why don’t you update the site more often?
I’m busy with work, and I prefer just posting my stuff on twitter instead of here. I’ll update this site once the game is closer to completion. In the mean time, please follow my twitter if you’re interested on updates.
