So the demo is out, bug reports are coming in…
And I’m working on bees!
The graphics are preliminary, but I love these little guys. They come out of the hive and swarm around the player. They only take one shot each to kill, but it’s easy for the player to get overwhelmed.
You have to destroy the hive, of course. Or you could try to run away, but that won’t always be easy.
I just updated the site with a new demo download, new screenshots, and a youtube video. It’s been about two months since the previous demo release (1507), and I’m really happy with the progress we’ve made since then. Go to the Download page to see the full list of changes in this version.
Here are some tips:
- If you’re having trouble figuring out the controls, here’s an explanation: use your keyboard’s arrow keys (or WASD) to walk, move your mouse to aim around the screen, and click the left or right mouse button to attack in the direction you are aiming. Press Esc to open the main menu.
- If you have trouble aiming, try turning on the “aim guide” in the settings menu.
- You can do a charge attack with any weapon. Simply hold the left or right mouse button for a few seconds and then release.
- Some weapons can defend against incoming projectiles. Some will even reflect projectiles back at the enemy. Practice this technique to get the timing just right.
- Defeated enemies will sometimes drop money or items. Besides money, every land-based enemy can drop two different items. The first is usually a common item like a wood arrow bundle or cure drink. The second item, which only drops rarely, is a more useful item like an elixir or new armor. Use the new enemy guide to keep track of which item drops you’re missing.
- Press F12 at any time to save a screenshot.
