Excerpt: How does one create a fighting game that removes the violence? It’s all about the result of the battle. In most games of this genre you are shooting or fighting the enemy, generally killing them. In Mini Ninjas you are returning animals to their natural state. An evil overlord has used magic to turn harmless forest animals into slave samurai warriors. When you battle and defeat one of them, you gain some energy and the animal is freed from its captivity.
