Post news Report RSS Upgrading Levels for the Story Mode

How we design our story mode levels with screenshots and more screenshots!

Posted by on

We want to allow to preorder the storymode very soon but before talking about business plans, let's take a look at the levels in the story mode first! We used some of the level contest entries as a basis to create story levels. Lootninja by sauer2 for example:

"Upgraded" Lootninja Level

Some of the steps when "upgrading" a level are the addition of...

background, skyline and info/data terminals...

Image
shadows and characters...

Image
hidden areas...

... and new content in general. Most "upgrade levels" are larger and require more time to do a 100% run than the originals.

Here is a big screen of a different, jetpack robot-heavy level, which is not based on a contest entry:

Codename "Jetpack Intro" (1920x1200)

We're nearly done with all the levels for episode 1 but some bugs, the preorder website and paypal integration will probably not allow us to release before January...
