Hey guys, sorry for the break in updates things have been super busy lately.

To get you guys up to speed I launched the beta for the kickstarter backers back in december and have been updating it, I recently added the ice world, and redid the graphics.

Anyway on to the pretty images, first up is a quick summary gif of the ice world update.

Next up let's jump right into the graphical update.

I went in and completely redid the rendering, it now features new lighting, shadows, reflections, and is much faster overall!

Here's a few pics and gifs from it:

If you want to see more about the graphics update, I put together a compilation video of the progress:

I also batched the dungeon and debris rendering, so the game should run much faster for everyone even with the new effects.

The game can even handle over a thousand debris now!

Image

* debris were scaled up for testing purposes, but it looks really cool *

I added a nice fade in effect for the lights when transitioning from room to room, to keep things spooky.

In non graphics news I started work on the next level theme, made a fun fire flower enemy.

Image

* Also you can now reflect projectiles with your charge attack! *

Another fun feature is that your character now wobbles around when you chat via text.

Yeah you instantly get the beta, local multiplayer is coming in the next update though.

You may want to wait until that comes out if you want your first experience to be with your friends.

I'll post on twitter, the kickstarter, and my dev log when the update goes live.

IndieDB will be updated a bit later since they require a decent amount of gifs and pics per update.
