This update doesn't have the overworld in it yet, but it does have fixes for every reported crashes and game-breaking bugs, improvements for Let's Players...
With the Prince kidnapped and the Chosen One defeated... terrible monsters have begun to plague the land. Join Lenna on her quest as she plunders monster-filled dungeons for divine artifacts to fix a procedurally-generated world on the brink.
Lenna's Inception is a top-down action-adventure RPG with procedurally-generated maps and puzzles. After completion of the main storyline the game will allow non-linear exploration of endless procedurally-generated worlds.
The game is currently in alpha and will remain free at least until beta. Throughout alpha I will be developing the overworld the game currently lacks.
I've been hinting for a while that I've been trying to get a musician for Lenna's Inception. Many very talented people have been contacting me about the position, but the question of who has been settled for a long time in my mind.
So which musician will be composing the soundtrack for Lenna's Inception?
I've known Andrew and his music for quite a long time. Way back when I started working on Lenna's Inception I knew that if the project worked out I would want Andrew to create the music for it.
Have a quick listen to his first track, which will form the theme for woods/jungle dungeons, and I'm sure you'll agree with me that it's a perfect fit for Lenna's Inception:
For Lenna's Inception he's repeating the feat, this time using Python along with more synthesis ideas such as Frequency Modulation. FM synthesis was used on the Sega Genesis, so this will surely give it a nostalgic feel!
Finally, if I may, I'd like to entice you to make videos of Lenna's Inception as well! There's been a lot of noise about Youtube flagging content in game-related videos recently. For Lenna's Inception I've put a statement on my website that you can use as evidence of permission:
I want you to stream and/or record videos of my games! I place no restrictions on your videos, what you choose to cover or what you choose to say about them. Do what you want!
Furthermore, I hereby grant you permission to monetize videos of my games. If you’re required to provide evidence that you have permission (as Youtube sometimes does), linking to this page should suffice.
Alpha5 is available for download and includes improvements and fixes for many problems Let's Players come across, including a lack of volume controls and a display that doesn't stretch to fill the window. (Although as in previous versions you will still need to select the 'Run in Same Window' to stop it opening the game in a new window.)
