Well, I can't thank you enough for your dedication helping me to improve this game. Each feedback is precious and help us a lot on which direction the game should go.


I'm going to update this page each time we have a new update.


Thank you very much! πŸ˜ƒ

Hey people! How are you doing?

This week I worked on the core design of the game, including weapons and level structure, some bug fixes and I have a lot to tell about it :)

  • On the metter of the weapons, now the game will feature only 4 weapons, but calm down! Each weapon now have 4 levels, the basic + 3 upgrades, these upgrades can be found on secret or hard to reach rooms of the levels. The upgrades work like simple upgrades (more damage, less recoil, more fire rate, etc) or by adding special behaviour to the projectiles, such as ricochete, projectiles only being interrupted by walls, multi shot, charged shot, etc.
    So, the total will be 16 variations of weapons (more than planned for individual weapons).

  • Still talking about weapons, now each one of the 4 weapons have unique graphics, I'm still testing it but it will include unique models and textures. I'll also add more variation on the projectile graphics.

  • Yet about weapons, now they are faster and more satisfying to shot in general :)

  • Now the health upgrade is working and you can have more total health by finding secrets.
  • Some of the levels are being reworked with a slightly different layout, most of the challenges remain the same but the rooms now have a more variated look.

Well, as soon as I get done with these changes I'll start to design the rest of the levels and enemies (I already started the sewers, but I'm holding it's design in order to finish the weapons and early levels).

Dude… someone will read all this? hehehe

Anyway, on thursday I'll attend to PAIN (Porto Alegre Indie Games) where I'll playtest the current version with some people, shortly after this (maybe on saturday) I'll release a new public version! :DDDD

As always, leave your suggestion and questions on the comments below.

Thank you everybody! <o/

Hey people!

:D

I've decided to make something different from now on.

I'm going to create each level with it's main features and level design in general, test it intensely and just then work on it's graphics, optmization and details.

It may delay the public releases of the levels but will ensure bigger and better packages of levels on each update.

Level 8 is ready (will be included in the next update) and level 9 is on it's basic version.

- Orbs (ammo and health) going away instead of going to the hands (really rare bug)


Well, it's a long time since I announced the 0.3.9 update, I was struggling with some game design decisions, I was not sure if the redesigns were good enough to make public and so I kept changing they over and over.
I kept returning to this feeling, this "impostor syndrome" from time to time, where I can't be satisfied by the way the game looks and plays. Even knowing I need to show the game in order to get the feedback to make the game better, I kept delaying the release of new public versions.

I reworked some sections of the levels in order to provide more exploration and strategic thinking against the enemies.

Also, the levels 9 and 10 are almost ready to play. :)

Level 9




Level 10

I hope you like the changes and thank you for the support! <o/
