Hi, Halen is not a robot. :)

Thanks for playing! We unfortunately ran out of time to get our AI working the way we wanted it to, and as such the game is VERY difficult. But we're very proud of our visuals and sound effects!
*Update: We made a change that makes the AI much more reasonable. That update will be available as soon as we are allowed to update the game file on Itch.
Thank you for your feedback! We are definitely aware of the difficulty. This was our first Unreal project (former Unity devs) and, as such, our first time using Unreal's AI Behavior Trees. Unfortunately we ran out of time to get the AI right and now it is WAY too difficult.
Thanks for playing!
Thank you for the feedback! We were definitely aware of the extreme difficulty with our AI turrets. We formerly made our games in Unity; however we have decided to make the switch to Unreal for various reasons, and this Jam was a sort of "test" for us to review what we have learned about Unreal for the last few months. This was our first time making AI in Unreal, and we went with using Behavior Trees. Unfortunately we ran out of time to get our AI to the point we wanted it to :(
Thank you for playing our game!
Hello, thanks for the comment. Don't worry, while this game will not be receiving any updates or expansions, we also wish to return to Halen's world in the future. Should you wish to keep up to date on any of our latest projects and news, I'd encourage you to join our Discord community and follow us on social media @skypyre
This game was made as a university project two years ago. As such, we were still learning about game development. Unfortunately one of the areas that did not get as much attention was graphical settings and optimization. The settings do affect some areas, however, they are not enough to really affect performance.
Rest assured, since then, we have learned a lot and have improved on this front.
We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Hi Len, I can tell you, you aren't the only one asking XD
For this specific game currently on Itch, we will not be updating the project. It is what we produced while at school and wish to keep it as is.
Something we have said in other replies however is that we have not forgotten Halen and her world. We look forward to revisiting it. Best bet is to follow us on Twitter and/or join our Discord to not miss updates.
Thank you so much for playing Halen!
Hi LordofNope! Watched the video and it was great. Thanks for playing, happy you enjoyed it. This game was our senior year university project. We are not currently working on updating it, however we have not forgotten Halen! We would like to revisit this world in the future!
Hey, thank you for the kind words! We can say that we have made a new game that was released on Steam at the end of June! The Blobs Fight is a local-multiplayer party game with support for up to 8 players!
Check out the game's page here: https://www.skypyre.com/blobs-game/
We are still supporting the game and have a set of patches and updates coming as well!
Thank you for the review! Glad you enjoyed the game!
For the issues you mentioned and encountered, I would like to say that we are aware of them and have learned many things since the release of this game. As this was our university final project, we learned a great deal and tried new things. That being said, we very much appreciate the feedback.
We really love these characters and universe we created and are glad that others do too!
Thank you for playing,
Hey CoalFire! Thank for playing, and glad you liked it! In this version (beta), bots are not implemented. As you mentioned, the castle level is much nearer to completion than the lava level. We wanted to give players more than one map to play on, but also wanted at least one map be visually polished.
This is a really cool DIY game! Love how powerful the gun shots are. The color choices are awesome and the overall simple shapes aesthetic works so well!
I don't know why those other blue circle dudes want you dead, but good thing you know how to make weapons XD
