  • Really enjoying this, to show my age, it reminds me (in a good way) of playing Smash TV in the arcade (top down and the awesome grunt sound effects.) What will the 'RPG' aspect be like? Will your character develop/upgrade beyond new weapons/items?

    Thank you for the kind words, mate

    The RPG aspect is allocating stat points to strength/endurance. Certain levels of stats unlock the ability to upgrade weapon (for damage) and armor (damage reduction) to next levels. Also the skills are upgrade-able.

    The RPG elements are designed to be not-so-deep, because the main focus is on fighting enemies and progressing through missions, not grinding them for a level up.

    It is already coded and functional, but lacks graphics - i'm waiting for my artist to cover it

  • Just for the sake of ppl searching for it on forum:

    How do I upload images to my forum post? Insert image? Add image?

    When you post/edit there is an "IMAGE UPLOAD" window below your text. Select your image and hit Upload button. After it's done you will get image's ID like xxxx

    When you hit the "insert image" button it will paste

    [img]

    Edit it to

    [img=xxxx]

    where xxxx is your uploaded image's id.

    Then save changes/post.

  • YT video on me creating a level for the game, check it out:

    (had to re-attach it after forum migration)

  • Here is a gif of player's room.

    It will be a hub where player will upgrade stats and select a mission to run.

  • Great project!

    How much play time do think you'll get out of it? Are you generating missions or do handcraft them?

    Thank you, facecrime :)

    There will be at least 2 hours of play time for a walkthrough. For Steam purposes, you know :)

    Missions generation is combined. When you get a mission you have a corresponding map marker for it. Clicking on that marker will send you randomly to 1 of 4 hand made levels for selected mission type. Part of mission's name is generated.

    Like defeat *gang_nameA* *gang_nameB* to escape. E.g. "Defeat Rusty skulls to escape" - that is just cosmetic.

    There will be 3 acts with their own biomes and enemies. Act 1 is Thugs and city streets for example.

  • Got several visuals for skills updated. Made them brighter. Also added some new floor tiles for diversity.

    Enemies look better flying away after hit by charged bash.

    Attached a gif with a level walkthrough to demonstrate it :)

  • Fresh screen. Act 2 - offices. Work in progress.

  • Updated video trailer in first post

  • Posted a link to IndieDB voting page:

    Vote for Cold Shell for indie game of the year!

  • Updated post header, because lots of stuff is updated :)
