There is so much goodies in this build that I can wait to play it with the public!
Here's what we have in this latest installation of King Arthur's Gold:

Every material now (wood, stone, gold, bombs and arrows) are physical game objects inside the game. This means you can:

  • drop them (or use momentum to throw across walls) (default key [C])
  • pick them up
  • healing heart can be picked up with [E] if you don't use it

So no more lost gold after being gibbed! But there's more:


the Human Catapult!

I think it is obvious what to do with this. You'll need a teammate to help launch you. Just watch out because long falls will cause falling damage or death.

Default key for loading catapult has changed to the drop key [C] !

Besides these features there are dozens of tweaks, changes and BUG FIXES. Worth mentioning are:

  • screen shake and blink (to notify you got damaged or killed)
  • kill messages (now you know who killed you!)
  • new charge cursors
  • bouncing off walls for even more fun knight combat
  • shield pushing gives sound feedback and works a lot better
  • press [M] to see the entire minimap
