Nightmerica is a game about fighting your fears, and the monsters that live inside your head. In your boundless imagination, pretty much everything is out to get you - and it's only a matter of time until you're overwhelmed. The game is a retro styled platformer, consisting of arena based combat against hoards of varied and slightly terrifying enemies. It also features randomly generated guns, and mods to change their behaviour on the go. The full game will feature several maps and game modes (possibly) including; basic survival, defend the base, procedurally generated arenas and boss rush. The game is basically trying to capture the feeling of frantic fast paced action, combined with very satisfying combat and platforming controls.
New music, new maps, upgrades, weapons, pistols, special weapons and more. We might even be able to set a release date soon!

I've spent today getting the new music in and writing a new music engine, as well as starting work on some new maps.
We also finally laid out exactly when and where each weapon, upgrade, pistol etc. gets unlocked in game. We're aiming to keep it interesting with almost any progress unlocking new things for you to try.
The main hurdles left now are getting the finishing touches on everything and doing the tutorial / maps. While Ricky and myself are in the middle of exams right now, we should be looking at a release in the coming weeks if all goes to plan.
I've also included a video showing some of the new music off etc.
