sorry about that shell bug! I'm not sure if i have solved it yet...
I need to rewrite my whole creature interaction system as it has a few other issues too.. hopefully soon!
I've fixed the reset bug! sorry about that will be gone in the next version
i'll see about android once the game is out on iOS!
thanks for the message, and my apologies for these bugs!
the reset issue i'll have fixed for the next build. ( its just on a timer right now )
i'll try to make sure fainted enemies cannot kill you, its a strange one!
ok that is super wierd!
can you try downloading the latest version i just uploaded today?
and also deleting your save game from here; %AppData%\Roaming\Eatvolve
then wasd / arrow keys should really work!
my apologies I will not be able to upload the new build today as I am away from my equipment.
After deleting the save file, if you avoid taking an egg to a nest this should prevent the same bug happening again
thanks for the feedback!
I am re-doing all the jump heights to prevent getting stuck - apart from gating areas
it has been tricky to get this right
I'll be uploading a new build in a few days that has some of this work done, still a bit to go though, thanks for your patience!
I'm really keen to not have any tutorials, as the joy of discovering things through play is something i'm hoping to provide.
With some more play testing i am confident i'll be able to make most of the game easily discoverable.
I hear you on the evolution menu tho, i'm reworking that to only appearing at the start of each life.
I'm moving the options menu out to a splash screen / menu so i'll have space to text next to the buttons there
there will just be a couple settings in the pause menu, sound / music / controls i think.
again, thanks very much!
ah ok sorry there may be the odd place that in inaccessible because of how my level generation works.
I’m adding the ability for worms to dig through platforms, so there will be a way to collect the DNA soon!
I’ll be working on improving the performance at some point, nothing you can do to fix it sorry. it’s hard to upgrade a laptop!
Older versions of the game run better but there is less of the game there?
Do you have a modern-ish phone / tablet?
I’m working on an iOS & Android version!
Hey Sam i've done a bit of googling,
this post has a few ways around the error if you are comfortable with moving a file around?
Please let me know how it goes!
I will make sure there are no space characters in my file path for my next upload!
sure! would love some levels in the game not designed by me :D and I will add you to the credits!
If you want to sketch out something i am happy to adapt that to the level format i'm using?
Each third of a level can be mirrored left / right, and swapped with any other.
So because of this I need the three 'pass through' sections indicated in white on the tiled editor screen shots to always be in the same position.
The middle one is always accessible from above and below, while the left and right ones can either be accessible from above, or below, or both
I would like to have the greatest variety of the starting section ( currently the bottom of the dirt area ) so if you'd prefer to just design that section that would be a great help too!
The other Biomes are still in flux, i haven't locked down the rules for which joins need to be accessible as yet, though they will end up being similar.
I have a day job, so sometimes development is slow, I wish i could spend more time each week! but have to pay bills
I'm showing Eatvolve at PAX Aus in a couple weeks and have been focused on trying to improve the game!
I will update the itch page with the same build i am taking to the show.
hey I'm sorry i wasn't clear enough!
the sprites are tricky, as i want to make sure they are all in the same style
would you be interested in doodling some levels tho? something like the page below
the bottom half of this page became the level i pasted up above!
Cool i like the golems ?
it occurred to me that best help would actually be some level designs!
I am using Tiled editor to make my levels, and although i create them as one entire thing,
in game i stitch them together using a different piece for the bottom, middle and top
Would you be up for sketching out some level pieces? i would love to have a way more of these, especially for the starting piece
(with the yellow square below)
Let me know!
