Adventurer Lenna sets out on a quest to hunt down the Archangel that killed her child-prodigy students. Armed with discarded weaponry, divine artifacts, and blood-thirsty pets, she soon becomes mankind's only hope for survival.

I’ve built into the game a way to record GIFs. Starting in alpha7a, hitting Ctrl-F12 will start/stop recording. Be aware that recording for more than a few seconds can create huge files!


Starting a new game


Finding items


Discovering something new


Finding the first dungeon


Defeating the first boss

Timelapses


When you play the challenge mode games it’ll silently record screenshots and at the end compose them into a timelapse GIF as above. These will be displayed alongside your score on the online leaderboards.

I’ve optimized the poop out of these timelapses so that I can keep the file size for an entire playthrough under 2MB.

At the moment, these timelapses loop endlessly, but I’m going to put some frames at the start and the end to display the final score, and so on.

Launcher

I’ve also been doing some work on the launcher. When you start the game up in alpha7a and onwards you’ll be able to easily see if there have been any updates (or news about upcoming updates).

The timelapse idea is cool, it would work amazing if integrated into a happy ending closing sequence.

OH, can you do some more overworld enemies please? bats should stay in dungeons and caves, and having them on every screen gets annoying. They are hard to predict and always cause me damage. Odd friendly npc's to interact with would be nice too, like merchants or a random town.. Hate to sound picky, I'm maybe just helping you brain storm. Your game is going great.

Things like this are all planned for the beta I'll be working on after I finish the next update, so a month or two from now.

For now I'm focusing on the challenge games which are dungeons-only.

Thanks for the feedback though -- it is helpful.
