Alt+tab can crash the game in fullscreen mode because of a Unity engine bug.
Blinding Dark is a First Person tactical Horror game. The game will have a total of 6 Acts and each Act will take place in a different environment while continuing the story. Fight monsters, spirits, horrors and other spawns from Hell while each has it's strengths and weaknesses. Collect legendary items that can help you kill or trap your enemies or just shield you from their attacks.
- This week there was some serious work on the save system overhaul. We discovered that adding new scenes would render our old checkpoint system useless because it was hard to extract the data and use it to transfer the character and all his achievements in the next scene. The good news is that it is finally complete and working as intended (as far as we could test it with our limited time).
Leaving aside the not-so-good news, next up are some awesome news.
- The next level is complete. Right now, if you know the puzzles perfectly and you know exactly where to go, you can complete both levels in 45 minutes (the new level adds about 30 minutes). We are aiming for the third level to add another 25-30 minutes, in the end stopping at 6 levels (130 minutes of gameplay) for the first Act. Remember, 130 minutes if you know the game perfectly (basically, at a second or third playthrough)
We are very pleasantly surprised to discover how inventive and resourceful our players are. Some of them complete puzzles or platforms in ways we never thought that could be possible, which makes us very happy!
- Fixed a bunch of issue, one of those being the fact that the blood splatters weren't showing.
This is how it should look now:
