I know many people after last week post are eagerly awaiting Bionic Heart 2 release. I asked Aleema to take care of it, since I was really burned out from weeks of continuous testing. I’m sure she’ll do a good job and I think the game should be out before the end of month!
Meanwhile take a look at the screenshot below:
It’s from the deluxe version of Planet Stronghold which is currently in beta testing, you can download it here: http://www.macgames.biz/games/PlanetStronghold-1.5.2-all.zip
What is this deluxe version? I needed a break from the testing, so I thought to update this old game with the latest Ren’Py version (which should improve the speed by a lot).
Since I was there I also decided to do a real update, consisting of:
- removed the “super easy” difficult level, since even at Easy mode the game was easy enough, and added a new Nightmare mode, which could also be called “prepare to die”. Since there seems to be a new trend in making very-ultra-difficult games, I thought to do my part too!
- but the real new feature, depicted in the image above, is a new screen that you can access by visiting the laboratory where Lucille is. You can ask her to build weapons and armors using “metal scraps”, which you can obtain looting enemies and salvaging other items you have. Some items are worse than those you can get through questing, others are better. You’ll have to find out which ones, there are about 80 new items 😉
- last but not least, a new GUI for the game, as you can see from the screenshots below:
The update is free for anyone who bought the “Official Strategy Guide” for the game. If you have bought only the base game you can get the strategy guide here: http://www.winterwolves.com/buy.php?prod=17030044
That’s everything for this week. Work on the other games continues, and I hope to have new interesting updates next Friday!
