Early Access v0.76

This release has come earlier than usual. We'd love to have resolve more issues but we don't want to risk introducing regression errors into the new build.

From March 25th - 29th, we'll have participating in Steam Remote Play Together event! In order to celebrate this event, we've released the Duel PvP mode!

Using Steam Remote Play, you can, for this event, invite your friends via a link to join your game even when they might not have the Steam client! For us, we'll be going live tomorrow to celebrate the event.

What's Duel PvP?

This is a separate game mode that is listed alongside Arcade mode. You'll be able to use any unlocked fighters or custom fighters in this mode. However, you'll need at least 2 PLAYERS to start. There'll be no AI enemies for this mode.

As usual, you'll start in the Fighter Selection Screen first:

Then you'll head into the Weapon Shop immediately! Do your shopping NOW!
You'll be given $500,000 and 250 capsules!

After that the duel begins! It'll be based on Phobos City at several random locations.

  • Asteroids will also be spawned to help certain weapons that need a surface to deliver its effects.
  • Drift usage is reduced greatly. Upgrades will add a lot more time than stated.
  • Power Gauge fills up AUTOMATICALLY over time.
  • Stage will spawn random bonuses every 30 seconds
  • Players can shoot each or effect each other like they do against Arcade enemies.
  • This includes the effects of Star Nova, Kronos and Angelic Assimilation.
Objectives

Kill each other! Each kill adds a kill score rather than a general score.

New Features

  • Duel PvP Mode! (as described above)
  • Arcade Session and Saved Games will now save previously used fighters and their weapons. That means if you've used Starlight, completed a mission and upgraded the weapons, then you suffer a game over and decided to continue with Hellfire, the weapons on Starlight will persist. This meant that if you game with Hellfire, you can select Starlight and get back all your old weapons!

Changes

  • All canonical fighters will now have its hit boxes CENTERED. Canonical fighters refer to:
  • Starlight
  • Hellfire
  • Archangel
  • Nova
  • Vendetta
  • Vanquisher
  • All canonical fighters will have a Wormhole Core Generator in the middle of it that as of now, glows in orange.
  • The reason for this change is simple; drift mode automatically pivots your fighter to the next target. The last thing we want is when your fighter gets pivoted into a hail of bullets not by your choice. As such, dying this way is seen as punishing and therefore the change.
  • Therefore, now you can drift with ease knowing that the center point of pivot will always remain the same and you can now safely navigate enemy bullets without being killed inadvertently by drift mode.

Bug Fixes

  • Corrected an incorrect appearance of a 3D SS Obliterator in Stage 10
  • Adjusted Stage 10 segment to properly reflect the dangers of certain weapons. Details not mentioned so as not to spoil the game for folks who hasn't played it yet.
  • Fixed a bug that in a 2 or 3 player game, if one of the players suffers a game over and concedes ie, not rejoining the game, then the game might crash.
  • Fixed a bug where awarding a player in certain cases causes the entire player's in-game statistics to be reset.
  • Fixed a bug where in certain cases, player’s warheads do not start based on difficulty level
  • Fixed a bug where the hull warning doesn’t appear properly for player 2 and player 3. Only the box(es) appear without any text or icon.

Conclusion

This is an update that has some major new features included and will be included in the full release. Early access adopters get to enjoy it first and also enjoy some leverage to help shape the game's final state.

We look forward to seeing you in our live stream! Don't just watch, join us and we can either do a duel or play arcade mode as per normal. Also, devs (ask me anything) is definitely - ON.

See you guys REAL soon!

Regards,
Jeremy
