Hot off the press: Analog Hype background characters for Rapstar.
(left to right: Jason J., Jason G., Marcus, Billy, Khalid, Adrian, and Quentyn)
We made these the same way as pretty much everything else in the game:
We'll post some more of these over in our Gallery later. Be sure to keep up with the Analog Hype blog - you won't want to miss the NBS studio profile they're going to run (something like this spotlight on Abandon Hope Games, another small studio with a great looking Kickstarter Project).
NBS Level Editor
Allow me to introduce the NBS Level Editor, a utility being developed alongside RapstarHeroes. Some screenshots:

Take a listen to the title track and a Rapstar Heroes commercial:
Rapstar Commercial #1 (Shindiggaz)
Some words on the Shindig from DJ Thermos:
"In the beginning there was the party, the park jam, the Shindigg. It wasn't about one style, or one message. It was about a all sorts of people coming together for the purpose of gittin down with this hip-hop ish. That's basically what the Shindiggaz are - a party where anything may happen. A quadriplegic jumps out of her chair and starts doing the roger rabbit. A camel wearing a party hat secondhands a blunt and then eats all the chips. Cats from all over the city jump on the mic to rip wild verses over bugged out beats that bang like nothing else in life. 6 MCs and 1 DJ: SoulDivide, Greazy Duzit, Kid A, Mr. Brink, Dutch Rollin Rebel, Zigzag, and DJ Thermos. They came together in Fall 2009 during the recording of the Therm&Soul mixtape: Adventures on Gunstar9. With a common work ethic and goals in mind, they decided to unite powers to rock shock the Pgh scene and then the world. The plan is to unleash a barrage of mixtapes, videos, singles and special projects until the universe is footclapping along with them."
"Listened to this last night shit was unreal! Word up to all the emcees that laid down those illmatic verses! Hope you guys keep this rolling! Pittsburgh need a sound like this to come forth more to the surface!" - Noetik 5000
"This is great." - Nicky Nikkels
"It's kinda like i'm od'ing on red bulls and cheap candy with no sleep. i feel my mind melting and about to wreck solid objects. i'm hyped." - A Sysed Fan
