calebbennets I absolutely look forward to your capx too!
stateevolution I would recommend you use the search function and search for combinations of words like "beat em up" "2.5d platformer", "final fight" , "double dragon" and things like that. Search back 10, 20, 30 pages back! You can find tons of awesome topics and capx examples. I found a couple of different interesting capx examples of beat em up type games today. One day I'll make a 2.5d brawler and I'm sure these examples will be great to research.
edit: calebbennets whoooaaaa! Saw your 3D game and saw the capx. Amazing stuff! Are you planning on making a full game with this?
