After finishing a dodge you will retain its invulnerability for a moment, this will allow you to better recover from it. You can now cancel the dodge animation by jumping, you will retain the invulnerability as if you finished the dodge (so kind of an aerial dodge). To compensate for the buff, the time you have to wait between dodges has been prolonged a bit.
roll or jump through em’
So the dodge is pretty damn important in the game. Due to the large hitbox of the player and enemies, you will soon find yourself in a place where you can’t jump over or duck under an attack.
We want to encourage dodging by making it more powerful and giving it more visual feedback (might add some more effects later). So dodge has to be a very short animation because you lose control of your character, and I wanted to buff it but keep it short and fast. These changes should make it a lot more appealing.
Dark Claw changes
The projectile speed has been increased, this means the effective range has also been increased. To compensate, its ridiculously high damage has been lowered a bit.
making it less Overpowered and more usefull
Also the dark claw can no longer be obtained early in the Dig Site. I thought it might have been an interesting secret to have, but it turns out that obtaining the weapon outside its tutorial area leads to players not learning how to use it or when it is powerful.
Also clearer tutorials and many other minor changes. So dont forget to update.
If you started the game, then you saw the main menu art. This bad-ass composition was made by a local artist and friend over here called Juan Carlos Mamani (JCM), also known as Gun Studio, also known as “the Raccoon”. Like us he made the art all by the kindness of his heart… yep we didn’t pay him 🙁 . So go give him a visit and look at his stuff, because its amazing!! Also he does commissions so go order a few!
So yeah, after so long! The game is finally released and everyone can play it right now.
This is so exciting! You can download it from our page or Gamejolt, or Itch.io. Here is our link: http://calavera.studio/minidoom2/
Hey everyone, to all who asked about when the game is coming out. Many thanks for the interest, it makes me really happy to see the support and really anxious to not be able to give a definitive answer. So here is some info:
Well it turns out that the last 1% of the game is actually 20% of the effort. The game itself is technically done, it is currently playable from start to finish and has been for a while. However some details are still missing. Credits sequences, disclaimers, some last secrets, polishing the difficulties and adding a couple of different game modes are still keeping us more busy than we expected. Continue reading What’s up with the release date?
So, we decided to put a couple of pixelated cutscenes in important parts to add some extra flavor to the game. This as also a good excuse excuse to make some pixel art that isn’t regular sprites like enemies or backgrounds. They cinematics are a bit non-animated because we really didn’t want to spend too much time and because we thought there was never that much animations when it came to cinematics in the old times.
In any case, we got inspired by cut scenes from games such as Batman or Ninja Gaiden on NES but since our game is kind of a humorous I tried to make it funny looking but keeping it still a bit bad-ass…
So here is the process of making one of our frames:
