Freeflow Combat System

Discord server:

The popular free-flow melee combat system as seen in many modern brawlers and superhero games.

“Freeflow” combat means that the player character automatically snaps towards the best target while attacking, closing the distance.

The timing of the attack animations will automatically sync up with the movement.

Enemies have an individual and a group AI and attack from every direction. Players can counter their attacks which locks both of them in a synced 2-character animation.

Includes blueprints, animations, AI logic, a trace-based hit detection system, a damage system, and some VFX.
