Hahahah, i got bad news for you Perigrin D:

Though this makes me need to think a way to make them awesome again, the blue lines weapon got a bug that would lag the game pretty badly and i had to take out some features, specially the bullet blocking feature. I might have to find a way to add it again without lagging the whole game. It was just too much code for it and each time the player had the FireType variable that was the blue lines, a lag spike appeared, almost crashing the game, rendering it unplayable.

If you have any ideas, i'd be more than glad to try!

Well, seeing as we have blue tron lines, and red fire, the basic weapon is mostly yellow, we just need to do secondary colors now. I propose a much slower firing purple wave, which gets everything up close real dead, a green weapon like an acid field, which extends dash length quite a bit but removes shooting ability (  or might just make the dash Shield a full 360 for a bit), and an orange bouncy projectile which gets a couple of ricochets before disappearing.
that is all main colors dealt with.

like a rapidly dissapating burst of purple in all directions from the tv, doing a lot of damage in a small area around you.

I think the background thing looks pretty cool.

The background looks nice, but I would ditch the static completely.

Or at least confine it to television screens in the background, instead of having it floating around.

I love how the best tatic in this is to use your 100% accurate automatic weapon as a shotgun wave attack in this. Squiggling the mouse rapidly ensues.

Oh no.
They discovered it!

Hahah, it indeed is, even if it's a bit bothersome sometimes (specially with my wacom tablet. Yeah, i play with the drawing tablet. IT'S FUN)

I may need to find a good replacement of doing that though. Like, something that still let's you do it, however you would forget about it because you'd have a gun that already does it. Of course, you would not forget it, but just to make it harder to notice ot the new players d:

Also, because i am feeling really lazy and i want to continue playing Grim Fandango i will copy and paste a message that i sent to one of my musicians and awesome helper.

(click to show/hide)
(click to show/hide)

It's just a few basic fixes, nothing really different. The only differences are:

.The borderlines are of a less strong color, making it blend a lot better
.The tvs now have some kind of cyberpunkesque window to make it destroy the eyes a bit less. Just a bit.
.Antennaes with lights that are always spinning! I think it looks a bit cool.
.Litter, that makes it look a bitttt more alive.
.Also, more buildings and more neon lights.

At the end i decided not to go with coloured cables because it broke too much the palette and was too weird.

Also, made the neon line work a bit faster now, and it makes a full circle around you wich, if standing, it fully protects from attacks of purples, for example. Not bullets though. It fixed most of the lag, yet i need to keep trying to figure out completely.

Also made a new background for the menu, with a nice addition of moving when you move the mouse. I will remake it though, because i had problems with it and also because i'd like to give it a feeling of depth to it by adding various layers instead of one fixed background. It will look a lot better."

New build!


This version is basically a bugfix of the last one, but it's got its own pack of goodies too, like weapons and voices after you die. Little tweaks, and a cooler red boss.

CHANGELOG (Of this and last version):

New stuff:
(Well, i really don't remember at wich point i stopped updating this thing, so i will just say the coolest new things)
-The TV talks! It's goofy and robotic but i think it's kinda cute. What a potty mouth though. In the future i'll add a lot more lines to avoid repetition.
-Red Boss battle reworked almost completely! It should be better... longer... and harder... and yeah.
-You weapon freaks! New weapons! One reworked, two new. Won't describe them though. Discover them!
-The background is actually cool now. It's got motherboard like houses and stuff! The TV City at it's best.
-Now you get an inmunity time when they hit you. It's very short, but saves lives! Some enemies still can eat you with just touching though!
-The Shield. I'll make a way to make it come alone, but right now it always comes with one of the weapons. I think i may have to work a bit some stuff about it, so if you get two shields at the same time you MAY get hit. Just saying.
-The menu is much cooler. Did i say that?
-Different songs depending if you are fighting a boss or baddies.
-Controller support!

Bugfixes:
-FIXED ALL ABOUT PURPLES. THEY ARE COOL NOW.
-Yellows won't get stuck in the bounds.
-Bosses minion are cooler too. Nothing you will see though.
I think that's all? there must be a lot more though!

Things i'll make in the future:
-You will get an introduction to the story! Yay!
-Save system that will start to work when you start unlocking things, like, if i am cool enough, new faces and stages. Maybe you could unlock more dashes and weapons.
-FIX THE HIGHSCORE SYSTEM.
-New level, The Future Jungle!
-I NEED TO ADD EXPLOSIONS.
-So like, more FUN.
