  • Fixed bug where button prompt for pirates in tutorial only follows the more progressed player's progress
  • Easier aiming for pirates
  • More obvious color coding for the two pirates

What’s the Motivation?

For this final iteration, our main goal was to improve the player's experience in the game through professional polish and bug fixes for gameplay. The most prominent change from the last iteration was the introduction of negative feedback into our game to balance out the power levels of the Ghost and the Pirates. The Ghost's cannon charge time and damage to the ship is increased when he is behind. This was a direct response to the many feedback we received regarding the Ghost being too weak compared to the pirates.

Another major change was changing the throw hammer ability from Button B to Button Y on the XBox Controller. Since players thumbs mostly rest on either the X Button, we believe it is easier and more convenient for them to reach for the Y Button. The hammer throwing ability is further enhanced by improving the indication for dizziness and a sound effect when the hammer hits. This makes the ability much more natural and attractive to use. We hope these changes lead to players using the throw hammer ability more in gameplay.

We also added many major bug fixes that make gameplay a more enjoyable and stable experience. We were able to resolve the bug where the Molotov fails to spawn sometime. This bug put off many players, as seeing the cooldown go off for an ability without seeing any effect at all feels very frustrating. We also resolved the bug where players were able to escape the Tutorial room before the game starts, leading to a softlock.

What's next?

We hope our final iteration suits the public's taste for a party game. We have devoted much time to the iterative process of building this game. What we hope to achieve with our game is to bring a fun time to friends, families, and even strangers. We hope everyone enjoys it!
