I work for Retro Army making Super Trench Attack! I worked previously in the industry for 14 years, for various companies. I also made Last of the patriots (free game) and The Old Man Game. I mainly dabble in Art/code/and design, but I'm trying to move into the business side of things now, must be showing my age. I also try to help younger developers get a start in the industry when and where possible.

Hi Swearload,

Thanks for the feedback, I'll test the accuracy thing, but can't promise anything, I tried it before in STA but most players didn't like it. It worked well in Medal Wars though, so I'll give it a go,

Hi Swearload, they're in the tent near the HQ,under 'decoy trap'! Not in trial version though. I'm currently finishing the steam version so I'll do another trial build with them enabled soon! Any problems let me know!

Thanks Swearload,

Thanks Swearload, I'll put it back in the next version 3.1, so you can shoot over smaller objects, sandbags and fences, as it makes more sense.

Any other problems let me know,

Paul

Hi Swearload,

Is a white flash effect appearing, as you might be shooting collision. You can't shoot over sandbags or small rocks anymore, it makes a 'ping' sound when you shoot collision. Thanks for letting me know about this, as I might make it like it used to be so you can shoot over small objects again,

Don't give up SwearLoad!, making STA is utter hell believe me. It's the curiosity of seeing if your idea works or not that makes it fun, for me anyway. Start small if your new to development, don't expect to make GTA in a week or two. Just having some polygons bouncing around the screen is a big achievement. Anyway back to work.

New version 2.0 is in the works, major changes to gameplay. It's more of a hardcore shooter now with diablo-style grinding. It's also alot more challenging. Oh and there's now 'Survivor mode'.

It's all very early concept art. However the game will feature a certain level of gore and horror.

I'll keep you posted! I'm wanting to do some ports but it's really a case of whether I should start a new game or keep promoting this one.

I haven't figured out a way to translate the humor yet, I use alot of scottish and english dialog and slang words. But if it's what people want I'll do it.

You might be right. I'm just one guy, I made the best game I could. However I'm working on pretty old technology here and I don't have the money or manpower like SNK. I'm not making excuses but it's the reality of being an Indie Dev. I spent five years of my life and all my savings making this, but the inconsistencies are due to the base code and art I did 4-5 years back. Which I couldn't change without redoing everything. I guess you get better with time. Anyway I'm glad you liked the game and hopefully it was worth the effort.
