Christmas gift – finally Steam Keys for BM11 bundle!

Hi people,

for the love of our game and the hope that most of you will appreciate that, we decided to make a Christmas gift to all buyers of BM11, by providing them a Steam key for The Body Changer (via Groupees website).

Even if our game was only a BONUS with Desura keys in BM11, some bundle buyers do not ask the steam keys because part it, but to kindly advise us that giving the Steam keys could increase the visibility of the game and expand the amount of people who can play The Body Changer.

We’ve been persuaded: they could be right, let’s call it a “reasonable marketing move” 🙂

We will let you know as soon as possible when Groupees staff will publish the keys in their site.
Take care and have a nice XMas. 

Ciao,
Alessio & ALberto – TSATT

New BETA 0.9.0

While you will need to wait longer for the (April) 2D Ultra Edition 😛 from today, if you own the game, you can play with the new BETA, version 0.9.0 (STEAM LINK HERE).

This beta is a HUGE step forward of THE BODY CHANGER because you can now play 9 of the 10 levels the game will have in the final version.
So, current v. 0.9.0 contains:

  • 4 new and complete levels/sectors, all connected with many different battles and many puzzles – exploration is needed find out how to reach some of them 😉
  • a lot of little bug fixes – wrong lighting for some area after a save game reload, barrel roll shortcut conflict between mouse and keyboard, occasional broken animation for some environment elements
  • better path-finding algorithm for the enemies
  • a improved body-change mechanic – you have more freedom to change between SynBs like, for example, when the enemies grab you
  • some improved icons for the UI – a better ACTIVATOR + one for the new bonus
  • a new type of enemy
  • a new bonus object for the Nexus and the Ighel – find out by yourself 😉

Time for some pics

For a limited period of time the game will also be on SALE, so if you don’t own THE BODY CHANGER grab your copy and enjoy this piece of game you always wanted for PC!

And please share and tell your friend! Tks!

Sector-08 second part

Last week you saw the new Sector-08 with screens from first part, today we want to show you some new progress.

Thanks to more testing the first part that you saw changed a bit. We removed a collectable key because it was useless, on gameplay side, re-ordered some invisible triggers and balanced the enemy-groups spawn order again. Why again? We decided to introduce here a new bonus for the Ighel SynB because the action oriented direction of the puzzles was sometimes a bit frustrating with the characters change, during the enemies attack. This is one of the common case where you think and design a game situation with all the details in mind (time, single action duration, rooms size, stuff inside…) and then, when you finally build it, you find out that something didn’t work that much as expected. But with the new bonus the situation flips and we must say that it really kick ass and it’s amazing how nice the multiple SynB use works now, while under attack!

On the first major puzzle we make the introduction more intuitive and added on a “special zone” some graphical hints, so it should be clear for the player what to do and we change a bit last part that was in some way skippable in the first version. The following puzzles changed with the elements timing and the enemy numbers and were adapt in some parts with the new bonus in mind. The final result is really very well balanced: you should now fell that if something didn’t work and you die, it’s your fault and not the game, you just need to try a better strategy or find a better way to defend and solve.

Here’s today screenshots, updated first part:

And the second part with the puzzles where the Nexus will be on the lower floor while the Ighel will run on a higher floor:

We would like to share more but we are really on the SPOILER limit… even with what was shown. 😉

And before leaving, some WIP from last puzzle (maybe.. 😉 ) – take a look:
