Hi everyone!

Snorms episode 3 is now available!

12 new maps

Episode 3

10 levels + 2 secret levels have been added to the game.

7 new monsters

Episode 3

6 standard monsters and a new boss are available in this episode.

5 new weapons

Episode 3

5 (powerful) weapons can be found in this episode, one of them is only available in hard difficulty mode.

Ending
The game is now almost complete. There is a total of:

  • 41 maps
  • 22 enemies
  • 14 weapons (5 using cartridges, 4 using energy cells and 5 using explosives)
  • Around 10-15 hours of gameplay!

HUD
New HUD options are available:

  • When switching weapon, it will display name, ammo, and weapon list under your cursor
  • When hovering items or monsters it will display their name
  • When reloading the mouse cursor will indicate reload status
  • When reloading the weapon icon will indicate reload status
  • New icons will be displayed at the bottom of the screen: activated power ups (and remaining time) and checkpoint activation status
Episode 3

Drops
Some monsters will now drop ammunitions and sometimes life/armor. As a consequence, you can not carry as much ammunitions as before.

Cheat code
Some cheat codes have been included, I won't tell you what they are, but I'll give you a small hint: my favorite game is Doom (I & II).

Game modes
You can now unlock some special game modes:

  • total destruction: all blocks can be destroyed
  • all level 1: all monsters are level 1
  • quick reload: quick reloading for all weapons

When activated you get less money and experience, and you won't unlock maps.

Episode 3 game modes

And of course, a lot of new/updated stuffs

  • Checkpoints will now automatically display their menu when moving on them (and just after death)
  • Some doors will open when moving near them
  • Balance update (lowered laser gun damages, changed monsters life/damage,...)
  • Scripted doors (doors that can't be opened by clicking on them) now have a different texture
  • Barrels will now send their "content" in the direction you shoot them
  • Money bonus will be granted if you find all secrets and/or money boxes
  • Level editor can now be launched from main menu
  • Level editor performance increased
  • Help is available through main menu (and in the level editor)
  • Buttons will change texture when they are deactivated
  • Updated hard difficulty mode (more monsters in episode 2, less monsters that respawn after death)
  • And various bug corrections

What's next?
Snorms will still be in Alpha for a few days/weeks, in order to male sure there is no bug left. Then it won't be in the Alpha Funding program anymore.
It doesn't mean I will stop updating it, I have already planned some cool stuffs (more unlockable game modes, unlockable maps, maybe some multiplayer stuffs,...)

Am I the only one who got surprised when I saw "Episode 3" in my RSS reader, thinking it meant Half Life?
