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!

I just watched the video and I'm speechless! :D

Anyway you have really to do something about motion sickness, I understand the physics movement system but playing more than 10 minutes with the camera constantly moving like in the video will give me headaches. :P

Thanks for becoming our first founder romnus! I put your name up on a new credits section on our website(it's under the Game Info tab). You'll get your unique weapon variations once we release the base weapons. It will also be listed in the game too when the base game is released. If you don't want your name listed let me know.

The store and everything will be ingame once we release the base game, so it will be easy for you to spend those points on the new content as it arrives. We hope to release an early version of the base game in a few weeks. And we have tons of paid and non-paid content indev right now. :D

Awesome, I sent you an E-Mail with my real name. I have never been immortalized in the credits of a videogame before, Thank you for this oppurtunity. I am of coarse EXTREMELY excited about the game, and all the unlocks and things, but being in the credits is also a nice perk. :P Also, I can't wait to check out the soundtrack and silas. You guys have done an amazing job, and I hope you get more founders soon. :D
