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.

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

The TL;DR is that I changed a ton of numbers, fixed a bunch of bugs, and added a new item: The Lasbreaker. You should be able to carry over your old saves...

Love this game, so much fun! Hope to see it developed further :D
The one thing it really needs is more enemies (maybe even enemies with random stats and randomly generated weapons?)

So I gave this some thorough testing over the last few versions released since my recording. You nailed the performance drops - I cannot replicate it anymore on any version. Great stuff! ;)

I took time this week to record some gameplay of your game and I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences I had! Here is a link to the video on my channel:

Youtube.com

The game is seriously addictive; Took me a while to full grasp everything, but once I figured it out, I really dug into it. I'm having a lot of fun taking down the cyberspace city bit by bit and exploring what everything has to offer. I've only had one problem while playing; at odd times, my FPS would drop from incredibly high to zilch, so I would have to alt-tab a few times to restore the speed. Otherwise, it's been smooth sailing!

Would love to see how this game evolves and by recording a Let's Play for it, I hope to spread extra attention for it and all the hard work you've put into making something amazing. Hope you enjoy the playthrough! :)

Thank you so much. I love getting messages and videos like this. I watched the video, it was pretty fun. Your line about digital kids was hilarious.

For the drop in FPS, was there anything in particular you were doing? I'd like to figure that out for you. It's very interesting that alt-tabbing fixed it.

Toward the end of your video, the spiders were not moving. This is a bug I've already fixed on the version coming out this Friday :)

Thanks again for your kind words. Let me know if you do any more videos!

I did some tests to try and replicate this. In the long run, I believe it might've been Playclaw 5, the software I was using for recording, that was causing the drops in FPS to occur. (Unusual, but I won't rule anything out at this stage.) However, when I was recording, there were usually two different instances in which the drops would occur:

-After a long time spent in the inventory; rarely occurred
-After initiating a hack on any random server; this would happen once out of every five or six hacks

I will be spending more time checking this out.

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :) And yeah, if I do more videos, I will let you know!

Starwolf, I spent some time this week working on optimizing the enemies so they cause less lag. Try it out, let me know if it's still causing trouble.
