For decades the USA has been going through an economic recession that has caused destabilization across the nation.
One of the cities most affected by crime and mafia is North Town, where violence reigns supreme as the only law.
Tamotsu Iwata, a respected master of the Dragon style of Karate, founded his own dojo in this city in order to help the weak defend themselves against evil. Years pass and Tamatsu gets sick, despite this the man most feared by the crime lords still remains. Over time he has three sons: the eldest Shinya Kasuga, the second child Kasuga and the youngest Aiko.However, in the Iwata family tradition only the men can learn the secret techniques.
This creates a gulf between Tamotsu and his daughter Kasuga, who disappears at a young age to follow the ninjitsu path, hoping one day to prove her worth.
The years pass, the situation does not improve in the USA, and North Town continues to be hit by chaos.
Tamotsu's situation is becoming increasingly precarious and as a result a gang of criminals decides to capture his youngest daughter, to put an end to his dojo and to stop him from helping the weak. So, Shinya becomes a formidable fighter despite his young age, and decides to go in search of his little sister. As he leaves the dojo to look for those responsible he is reunited after many years with his sister Kasuga, and is ready to put his pride aside in order to save Aiko.
Thus begins the legend of the Dragon of Karate and the Dragon of Ninjitsu!
The game combines and enhances the early era scrolling beat em up games (like Kung Fu Master and Vigilante) with action ninja style games (like Shinobi and Ninja Cop Saizou).
The player can control Shinya and Kasuga, who will take turns in seven different stages. Shinya uses punches, kicks and weapons to defeat his opponents; while Kasuga prefers jumps, speed and long-range attacks with her lethal Kunai. All these elements create a dynamic adventure that combines the best of old 2D action with a good

We are two brothers from Italy who are trying to revive the old school with new games, new features and an original concept.
Our first game was SEEP Universe and we hope to continue to grow and give our best to all fans of retrogaming!
How you can support the project? Simple, you can vote for it on Steam Greenlight! ;D
We have decided not to use crowdfounding because we already have the license and materials to publish Dragon Climax, thanks to those who supported SEEP Universe, our first game!
Anyway, if you want to buy us a cup of coffee you can buy SEEP Universe, or gift it to one of your friends if you think it's good! :) Link for SEEP Universe: http://store.steampowered.com/app/383630/?l=italian
