Report article RSS Feed April Update

No, not a game update, a NEWS update! Includes info on Boss Battles and Save Files.

Posted by ferriswheel42 on Apr 23rd, 2013

I made a video and wanted to share it with you guys:


So you can see some of the stuff I've been working on.

Boss Battles

Bosses can be found typically at the end of a Temple, and they are incredibly strong Pokemon with a different look from the species they're part of. Sometimes they have different stats, different movesets and are generally "special". If you defeat them, they will return after 24 hours (that's in-game hours) - that way you have multiple opportunities to capture them even if they faint in battle.

Save Files

Next is the save system, which has been slightly modified to include support for multiple save files. The plan is for all future versions of the game to be backwards compatible with older save games, so you don't need to worry about starting a new game every time Survival Island gets updated. You will also be able to share the save files themselves.

Upcoming Features

For those of you who want to see what's coming in the next update, here's what I'm hoping to add:
- New Battlebacks
- Multiple Save Files
- Boss Battles
- 1 new area to explore (and more pokemon encounters)
- 1 new temple and corresponding boss
- Performance enhancements- More original music
- Fixes to a bunch of bugs
- More items
- More secret things

That's it for this news update, please let me know what you think in the comments! I like having feedback.

Looking good, the framerate is odd there also seems to be a clunkiness to the video. Not sure if that is your recording equipment or if it is the game.

It's definitely the recording - it messes up the frame rate slightly in order to keep the audio in sync. I'll see if I can get this fixed for future recordings.

Use a program called dxtory. It works a lot better than fraps.

idk if this was apart of the game or not but idk if i am supposed to be able to get close to stelix or not with demo v 11.1b but when i first played it i was able to reach him all the way up to the last few steps away from him then it started to turn me around. now i can't get close to him at all not even past the fire seal just putting that out there

It is possible to get past the Steelix, but it's not a very intuitive puzzle. Basically, your party can't have a Pokemon of the same type that's on the seal. It's kind of dumb since: a) the game doesn't tell you this in any straightforward way, b) there's no skill involved in solving it, and c) the only way to learn this is by trial and error, which means a lot of time-consuming walking back and forth between the base camp and the temple.
The only thing past the Steelix is HM01 and the end credits, so it's not like you're missing anything extravagant.
The next game update will overhaul this section (see video), and allow you to progress to a new area.
