The end is near

tbc_collisionKebre2

Isn’t it a nice day? Hi all!
The end is near! 😛

Wednesday we finally added all the PCs, with the story/gameplay info, to Sector-10 so it is 100% DONE. What does this mean? It means the MAIN GAME MODE is COMPLETE.
HELL YEAH, dammit!

So what are we doing now? Of course drinking champagne and watching the sunset… ah, sooooo coool and relaxing.
…sadly not. 😛
We are on lot of things because we want to release the game asap, so let’s make a list of what’s going on:

  • We are completing the IT localization, it’s taking a lot of time, more then expected sadly… then we will move on with other languages, at least that’s the plan. Alessio fixed all the bugs of the editor and added some feature for knowing which sentence was changed and a better backup system.

tbc_editorLangNew

  • With the arenas, we have right now 3 new and playable but for the week end I think we will have ALL ready. We have added new names (that give an idea of what’s going on..) and changed the weapons list and specs, for making them great experience, let’s hope you will love them. We reduced the map size, so you can see more icons on screen and planing your moves .

tbc_arenaWIP02 tbc_arenaWIP03

  • On the ALTERED SIGNAL arenas we recalculate the noise effect, it will start sooner but with less.. noise and become stronger with a better progression. In the previous version it started late and strong and we were not completely satisfied with it .
  • Alessio has changed a bit the hit detection of the Kebre, the first boss… it will change with the difficult level, so if you are a beginner 😛 maybe (MAYBE..) you will make it to Sector-02. MAYBE 😀 You can see the areas in the image, the black zones are the parts that you hit with the firing of your weapons (and are of course invisible):

tbc_collisionKebre

  • Throwing bombs now is a bit faster, it takes less time
  • We have some new in game E-mails from NO-END that introduce the player a bit more to the gameplay, with a bit of infos about the SynBs and the Activator. We decided it could be a good idea after a friend of mine (from UK) played the game and told us his impressions.

Uff that’s all. I think it’s time for a new version, what do you think? 😉

Have great time and take care.

New ALPHA! Survive and KIll them all in the 3 new ARENA MODES


A new and HUGE update is finally available with a lot of nice things and a most of all: the 3 NEW GAME MODES are finally available! 

To unlock the menu with the Arena Modes you need to finish sector 1 (so you will have reached the minimum of combat knowledge). After this you will be able to play with the first area – we will add more and more areas in the future alphas. 

Any mode is about fighting and surviving but has a unique game mechanic with a special set of custom weapons, so it’s not simple shot-or-die (and use and abuse of the combos for making points) but you need to follow the mission and kill as many as possible enemies (by making combos!). 
Because the Arena Modes were born for having great time in fast plays and make more points as possible we will add soon STEAM LEADERBOARDS. So, train now as much as possible 😀 

But the update is not only about this, so here is our current development change log: 

  • UPDATED HUD ICONS: the objects icons are now brighter with a stronger stroke around and we fixed also a Z-index “bug” where the icons were drawn BEHIND instead of in front of the selector.
  • UPDATED HUD SELECTOR and TABS: elements are now all blue with less alpha for better contrast and the selector in particular is completely new, with a nicer and more modern design
  • DIFFICULTY OPTION is no more available from the option menu – when you will start a new game you will also choose the difficulty level
  • NEW GUI ELEMENTS: we have made a new group of elements for the in-game pop-ups that we will include asap.
  • GAME TEXTS are now all into an unique file, from menu to game text to story – you know, order is always better 😉

Next to come: include Sector 6 in current story mode, insert the leaderboards in the 3 new game mode, add the new GUI elements and continue with Sector 7. 

So, let’s hope you will hear the applause (???) when you will playing the new game modes, have a lot of fun and please comment if you have suggestions or just if you like it. 
Please also spread the word and, if you have a Facebook account, why don’t you follow us? 

Until next time take care and have a great time,
