Hey mate,

Using SideQuest.  I have some instructions here, I know are a bit outdated.
https://sites.google.com/brennanhatton.com/dungeon-train/sidequest

This button here on SideQuest

Its also on App  Labs

You need to use SideQuest to install it

:O

Yes only for VR. Sorry to disappoint!

Thanks  Dobsy, glad you liked it! Yes, I am aware of that issue and working on it.  Thanks for the feedback

Mate, it very nearly did! hahaha.  Thanks for keeping up the support!  Not to much different, mostly bug fixing. Exciting stuff coming soon though. You need to be verified to get access to the test build link, just  post in #general or #help saying you own the game and someone will get you sorted out.

Let us know what you think when you play it! I would  love to see a screen recording of a first time playthrough

Hey mate, jump in the discord and we have a whole community who can help with this

Me too!! hahah

Oh remote control swords and weapons is a very fun idea! XD  Yes and necromancy,   that is usually my go-to as well. Love all the othesr too. Glad to hear that Dockside. Be sure to join the Discord to be involved in day-to-day developments

Hey,

Itch just let me know the refund is now being processed and should be in your account in a few days.

"Hello,

We have refunded their payment. It may take few days for it to appear on their statement depending on the payment method used.

Please let us know if there is anything else you need, Thanks"

*Note I requested this as soon as  I saw your post.

Thats a cool idea!

Sure!

I really appreciate your involvement in the community and the game!  Its really awesome.

Thanks  Mattecko!! Great to hear how the game is being perceived. Looking forward to your input in the community.

Fantastic! Super glad to hear all of this. Performance is such a complex  thing with so many different parts, that even when I am sure I have improved it, I don't really know until someone else says something like this! Its one of those "Well  I'm pretty sure I fixed it on my end, I really hope this works for  other people" kinda thing. So thank you for this wonderful message!


Hah! That is good to know, I will look into that.

Not yet. It almost certainly will later this year. Perhaps in a few months. I am not committing to timelines yet.
I want to focus on  the core elements of the game first for one platform before I get distracted with supporting multiple devices. This will allow me to publish updates faster and focus on making sure the game is really good as a priority.

Man I really want to do magic equipment. The first one I want to do is gauntlets  that extend your reach through telekinesis. Using the runes to teach is a great idea!

This is awesome! I love it! Thanks for sharing. I am really hoping I can make use of hand tracking for magic.
It would be great if Oculus changes their system so you can have one hand tracked, and one controller.

Thanks mate! The work you have done on the interaction system is outstanding, and I cant wait for what it is going to allow me to add next!

New Interaction  Frame is coming next.

  • Smooth Locomotion (and turning  with teleporting)
  • VR Hands
  • Physics based interactions (just fixing a few bugs here before release). 

I don't want to commit to a release date, because right now I just need to figure out these bugs. But that could take anyway from hours to days, its hard to know because if I knew I would have fixed them already.   The lack of knowing is also draining, which sadly makes it slower.    The engagement from the community  really helps pull my head out of the annoying bugs I get lost in to help me make progress on other areas so I can come back and look at  different angle.

One of those things that has come out of the community engagement is story that has been in development. It  will get its first light of day in this next update, I just added it in today! Only a small part of a much larger story (there are peaks, and spoilers in the discord. You should have got an email from me with an invite to that)

 The frame work    will also    path the way for a lot of things in future updates including 

  • Inventory & weapon slots
  • Bows

and more.

hahaha thanks Starfallrally! It was definitely a  bug, but I also love it. I think I will keep it!    It fits in well with the infinite theme.

Yes I think so!

Good ideas. Simple, I like it!

Hey  Crystal,

Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate your honesty.    Where could I do better in setting expectations for the current status of the game?

Smooth locomotion is coming next! Along with the interaction framework. There is a lot of exiting things coming, and this next update will likely not be out for a  week or few.

"this is more a pet peeve than anything but its so much more immersive if holding the grip button holds the object and letting go drops it without it sticking to my hand" 

This is a tricky one. I agree! But that is how it was initially, but the feedback has been overwhelming been make it sticky. 

Great, smooth locomotion should be part of the next update.

Got it! Well  I just bought this, so if integration goes well, expect all of the above and even more   exciting things soon   https://assetstore.unity.com/packages/templates/systems/vr-interaction-framework-for-oculus-161066

Thank you! Yes I will definitely be adding that as clearly it's important to s lot for people by how often I get asked XD. It's going to be a little bit of work though, so I need to prioritize and do it at the right time.


What feels more important to you at this stage, improving the main game mechanics or adding smooth locomotion?

Hey  Inspecter,

Thank you very much! Glad to have your support. Once you pay, you access to future releases with no extra cost! 

hah, well that makes a lot of   sense. Yeah I will, thanks!

Right now they work similar to the tardis in Dr Who. They look smaller from the outside than they do from the inside.  If you look through a window, or a hole in the wall, you cant necessarily tell how big the next carriage is, only from looking directly into it through the door can you get a sense   for its size. This is pretty much limited to width, not length as you wouldn't tell the length by looking through a window anyway.

A few things worth noting here.

1 - There are bugs with how it currently works and sometimes walls /roof are visible when they shouldn't be or objects / items in the room. This is also why the floor disappears sometimes although somewhat rarely.  I've been looking for that bug for over a week now, hopefully I find it soon!!!

2- I have built some features I am yet to release that will make  carriages  turn into themselves and walk back on itself.   However, I have put this on pause as the feedback  I am getting from the community is focus on the looting, & enemies first. 


What do you think? Should i be prioritizing  non-euclidean spaces?

I am planning on adding magic to the game and am looking for ideas on what different spells could be. From potions, or hand casting.

For now I have some general categories I want to expand upon, but also open to more.

1 - Looting

Things like 

Telekinesis. 

Unlock Chest.

Increase speed /  Increase teleport distance


2 -  Combat

Pretty simple.

Do damage.

Reduce damage done to self.

Freeze enemy etc


 3 - Collaborative

Healing Allies

Making an enemy a friend

What do you think? What else could there be? What are the best ideas?
Thanks   @FishyFish29 for raising this in Discord.

Thanks MonMaxibon, Glad to hear you think it is the right path! 

Thanks Nullnvoid. Yes the taming is a strong idea, a few people are suggesting it. I also like the idea of equipping and customizing them and changing the perception of enemies.


I think making them useful like collecting loot is a good direction to take it. 


I am also thinking of having a mode that is just, keep your companion alive. That's the whole goal.

Taming the creatures in the game I think is a good ideal.

Awesome, thanks. Have you come across the green slimes  yet? Or are they too simple / easy.

I am looking at either doing companions or enemies in the next update. So now is a great time to share every idea you have on how to do simple    improvements additions to those.


What do you mean by properly  grab objects? are you referring to the how the weapons sit in the wrong direction in your hand, or  something about grabbing other objects?
I am  planning on doing a UI overhaul in the next few months, with a new VR system. I could do most of these interactions   stuff    with a quick fix until than , thanks!
