Project Float is a 2D puzzle platfomer with some RPG-like elements. With the attack of your hometown, your character sets off to find and defeat those responsible. On your journey, you find a collection of robotic spheres that each give you a special ability that you can use to help you through the environment.
Details on the new upcoming Project Float update and some information on the new free demo that will be running on the updated Project Float's 1.3.4 engine.

It's been a while since I've released a new post or any sort of update on the development of this game so, I'm going to cut the crap and get straight to the details.
Project Float 1.3.4
This new update will include several bug fixes that will make your gameplaying experience much more enjoyable, but besides the fixed glitches this new update will also change the look and feel to the game. The backgrounds are now different for each world and have been painted in photoshop. There's quite a lot more to the update so, I think I'm just going to let you guys read the current changelog:
Camera after Checkpoint
HUB Building Camera Transition
Floating Crates/Zombie Survival Exploit
Quick Audio Disable/Enabling
World Map Quick Travel
Additional NPC Dialog
Boss Rush Game Mode W.I.P.
Object Animations (Springs,Coins,Hearts,Etc.)
Additional Sound Effects
Upgrade System (WIP)
Swimming Animation and Movement
Q,W,E Debug Keys in some levels. (Still not all gone)
New Updated Demo
So, it has recently been brought to my attention that I did not include a demo version on Desura for this game. I was going to add the 1.2 Alpha demo, because that was the latest free demo I had released. Before I had planned to stop releasing new updates of the alpha as an incentive to get people to purchase the full version, but now I realize that with every alpha update the game usually changes drastically and by people trying out an older demo they are not fully experiencing what Project Float could be. So, to make a long story short... I will now be releasing updates for the free demo. These updates will mainly just include bug fixes and whatever graphical changes are made to the first world.
This new updated demo will be limited to only the story game mode and in that mode you will be able to play the first two levels and the boss in the first world. These updates will usually come after the paid versions have been updated, mainly because it takes a while for me to add all these new features to the demo version of the source file.
Project Float is coming close to Official Release!
Yes. After all this time I can gladly state that Project Float is coming close to its final "Alpha Update". This upcoming 1.3.4 will not be the final update but one of the last ones. After just a bit more then a year the game is finally in a state where I just need to finish off some levels and polish up. Although, by saying I'm almost done I mean with the story mode. The first official release will probably include just the Story Mode and Zombie Survival. While all other promised game modes are continued in development. So, of course, after the game in it's core is released the game will continuously grow in size. Even past what was originally promised. So, I hope you guys purchase the game and enjoy it while you and I watch this game grow.
So, to conclude this long news post. Don't forget to purchase Project Float's alpha:
OR.. You can try out the 1.2 Alpha Demo if you don't want to wait for the 1.3.4 demo.
