I backed on Kickstarter and they have now delivered! From playing through the tutorial level on my Steam Deck via RetroArch, the game runs fine and it's clearly somebody's passion project who really loves Metroid style games with a lot of thought and effort put behind it. I like how there's even little touches like some character dialogue (but not too much) with some simple vocalization sounds that are different for each character.

Wait a minute, what the crap? I thought I was getting access to non-Steam builds by buying this on It's just a placeholder!?!?

I like to archive all my music in CD quality 16-bit FLAC.

Add the soundtrack to the game as an additional download?

You spelled "Maid" wrong, unless Marian is joining the Mafia.

Being DRM-free is great.

But since that's the case, couldn't you put the binaries on for buyers so people don't need Steam at all?

I have been working very hard on another remake of the Wolfenstein 3-D engine, this time not only with the shareware but also with support for commercial Wolfenstein 3-D, Spear of Destiny, the Nocturnal Missions and even Super 3D Noah's Ark. Plus mods of all of the above. As a native Quest app AND for PC.

I started it in August 2019 and I expect it to be finished sometime this year. (in 2021)

Yeah I didn't mean to say people can't use the editor. I was only saying that my code provides an example of how very nearly anything the editor can do, C# can do.

Code from my WIP Wolfenstein 3-D remake could be helpful as a reference, especially if anybody is crazy enough to try making something in VR.

It is written entirely in C# with absolute minimal use of the editor.


What. Please put the download back up. Just tell people it's a false positive. If they're too stupid to understand that, too bad.

mouse sensivity is so high that the game is unplayable on my system

I love the new name! That'll show 'em! I hope every project that gets a DMCA notice will do something similar.

I am missing a button as well, and also don't see one on Groupees. I don't really remember how I bought this cause I have bought so many bundles.

Xoppa on the freenode #libgdx IRC said that the solution to this is to first render everything inside a FrameBufferObject and only then write that to the screen. I will be experimenting with that soon

LibGDX seems to be very bad at this. Look what happens when you try to use ShapeRenderer with a low resolution FitViewport:

I was thinking of looking at trying to force it to use Bresenham's line algorithm to draw lines in this but then I discovered this happening:

What the hell is this!? commit that shows this problem is here

you sure you're rounding your positions to the nearest int and rendering to the spritebatch associated with the fitviewport?

It had padding, but the padding was white. Apparently each tile needs to have padding of the same color as the pixel next to it. That seems a completely backwards way to deal with this -- isn't this simply a bug in libGDX that shouldn't occur?

Anyway, I wasn't using a TiledMap but I am planning to implement that soon

I am getting some nasty pixel bleed

Hey thanks! I am going to be trying this in libGDX too
