Here's a mini update! https://8bitape.itch.io/swordsandshadows#download
The overworld terrain is going to take a lot more effort than I realised... We have two people working on code side of things now though, which is awesome. Here's a video of the features in the mini update:
- Bats: Fast and kinda scary but super cute at the same time
- Potions: Heal yourself as you adventure through the dungeons
- Increasing Difficulty: The further you go, the harder the dungeons become!
- No Timer: Who needs timers anyway?
- Game Over Stats: When you die, it's game over and you get a screen detailing your progress - number of gems collected, bats killed, rooms explored etc. (a few of these will be added in a later patch)
- Bug Fixes and Gameplay Balance: Fixed a bunch of things and made the game a little fairer (still tough though!)
