Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Week @ Code}{atch

3 comments by RightClick on Jul 18th, 2014

Hey guys, So this Week @ Code}{atch, things have been fairly relaxed, compared to the previous week.  We've created some front-end changes in the game and have added a compass, harvestable plants, and a couple of creatures into the game.  

The compass is featured at the bottom of the screen, and shows one the location of the world spire, enemies, npcs and other players.  

Compass

It shifts around on the screen and now allows players to find their way to beacons, other players and orient themselves around landmarks such as the Spire. 

Next up, we've got a mean new creature that moves fast, bites you fiercely and generally makes you hate life.  Introducing, the Prowler:

Prowler

It's pretty ferocious! It can run quite fast, it has hardy amounts of armor, and its only weakness is bullets.  Lot's of 'em.  So if you're under-prepared or early-on when you meet this guy, just run the other way.  Also, we've added a new animal of prey, that moves quickly and effectively, and drops a slightly different configuration of loot.  

Beedle

It's an non-aggressive class NPC, and skitters across the ground rapidly on its two fore-legs.  It can be a challenge to catch up too, and possibly lead to some nasty predators.  

The rest of the week has been spent fixing up bugs and tidying up the netcode.  We've also changed some development methods around, in the hopes of being able to add features more robustly.  

Thanks for reading, and I hope you all have a solid weekend! From everyone here at Code}{atch, thank you!

Love the physics engine, especially with enemies. Getting smacked around by swarms of spiders combined with the camera blur effect is amazing. Indie game of the year 2012/2013 right here.

When I played this, I assumed there would be no monsters unless I spawned one myself. So there I was, building a nice fort, when I heard a something weird which sounded like a fat guy scoffing a burger, I turned around and before me was a giant maggot-worm-thing. I crapped myself... :P

...it was completely unexpected...

lol, "a fat guy scoffing a burger" - glad he caught you off guard. As the game develops we have many plans to add to the horror atmosphere, however we aren't ready to release details on how it will all work yet.

I didn't know what else it sounded like really... That was the first thing that came to mind.

My only problem is the 'black screen' I can only play on lowest settings, I posted that on your forums though.

Can't wait for more :D
