Tons of changes this patch! Item/Difficulty scaling, graphical updates, bug fixes, and more!
Black Ice is a Hack and Shoot - a cyberpunk first person shooter / hack and slash rpg about hacking. Think Borderlands meets Tron. The cyber-world is procedurally generated, the colors are neon, the loot is randomized, and the lasers are loud. Black Ice is in Open Alpha until Saturday, March 15, so you can play right now!
If you'd like to stream or record Black Ice, please do! Even if you're going to make money off of it, that's totally cool. If possible, please include a link to my twitter (@BlackIceTheGame) and my website, SuperDuperGC.com
Now you can look like the elite hacker you are! Head over to TeeSpring to grab one of these limited edition fitted t-shirts. Or a hoodie! Or a V-neck! Or a women's tee!

@odd_dimensions Waves of super enemies just feel like hard normal enemies though, right?

@beetlebear Right, I do a lot of inheritance. But I didn't make like a high level modular state machine, like the FEAR AI.

@Jennimason0990 That's already inherent in my current scaling system - but it doesn't *feel* like a boss, you know?

@rwgove That works fine for a game based on linear progression, but might not be a great fit here. Needs to be a gear + skill check i think.
