Wow that's great news, times two! Now I am REALLY waiting! (for both:P)

Cool, an update! This game is even better than I remember (or because of the update:) Playing 1st person is a joy, and I like easily to be able to change to 3rd person view for e.g. platforming if you like. I like dashing and jumping, I hope more platforming elements in the future! Movement feels really good and its nice to see your legs and arms and all that while in 1st person. Embarassing to admit, but I couldn't beat the boss (in 1 try), last time I remember it was e-z peasy (difficulty setting might have been different though). Nice changelog by the way, I chuckled a couple of times reading it.
Although this game is very good and promising as I am already liking it very much, I hope you are working on Hoverbike Joust still? Or did you decide instead to focus on B-12 in the end? Man, I am waiting updates on Hoverbike Joust like the rising moon! I won't complain if you decided to focus on this instead:)
Anyways, I wish you tsemppiä, which seems to translate as fighting spirit/ spirit/ energy. Which reminded me, I am going to joust a couple of chumps now since I haven't done that in a while
Good game! Looks really nice.
At first the controls feel a little unresponsive with the "drifting" there but it took me couple of races to get used to it (and learning to use that B button), after that it gets easier. Are the controls "drifty" on purpose? I figured so since there is the word drift in the game's name :D
The controls make me think of Wipeout style game (just played BallistcNG) more than a flight"sim" game (e.g. Skydrift), and this is not bad thing per se, its just not how you expect your ship to handle the first time you play. Personally I would modify it a bit so that you could for example stop the "drift" by letting briefly go of throttle, as in a car would handle (you release gas or press clutch and steer forward when you want to stop drifting). Though I like the aspect that you got to actually learn to fly your ship and it is so rewarding when you start mastering it. But all in all, very promising game!
Actually I have! (had it on Gameboy a long time ago), and Hoverbike Joust actually made me think of it! Great minds think alike it seems. Another good jousting game is Last Knight Rogue Rider, if you haven't heard of it. Do you know any more jousting games? ;D
After another session of Hoverbike Joust I grew to like it even more. I congratulate you on the original idea and great execution! This really is a game I can easily imagine sinking countless hours into (with the leaderboards and multiplayer oh boy)
The barrels in the circa-83 are fun to tip over. This made me wish that destructible objects like this would be awesome to see more in the game (e.g. a little shortcut blocked by barrels or something like that). I truly enjoy this kind of physics-based-braking-stuff in games :) Or a tree branch that you have to duck under, if you don't you will hit your head in it and crash! Or water obstacles (or pits or something) that you have to kind of glide over by first leaning forward and then backward while accelerating. OR MAYBE there could be a trial mode with these features, that has really difficult tracks and obstacles and require very precise control of the bike? (I thought of this when I was trying to jump on top of the spawn points in arena mode, and to be able to do that and control the bike precisely gives great satisfaction, also making flips is fun). Or a mode that would have some sort of targets on the track that you have to joust. Well these are joust a couple of thoughts that came to mind! :)
Anyways, good luck with the game, I will be waiting the next iteration of it (and playing the last)! I wish great success for you.
ps Tried your other game b-12 and it was really great and fun to play, too!
Xydonia seems super awesome! Just played the alpha! I have been looking a shmup EXACTLY like this so thank you for answering to my wishes <3
How can I throw money at your way, should I feel the urge to do so? Also, if I may inquire, how early or late you are currently on the game? THANKS! YOU ARE GREAT PEOPLE FOR DOING THIS.
