Update 0.6


Changes and Additions

Controls

  • Tightened up character controls when turning at high speeds.

  • Updated controls menu to reflect current controls.

  • Moving platforms now behave more consistently

    • Rocks will no longer dig behind you while sitting still on a moving platform.

    • Characters will now leave their rolling animation and go into their idle while standing on a moving platform.

    • Snake rocks now remain in the correct relative position.

Gauntlet

  • New Procedural Gauntlet presets for Easy, Medium and Hard variations

    • This affects overall Gauntlet length, the difficulty of the lanes that are spawned and what modifiers can be stacked on top of them.

    • Allowed all possible lanes in Gauntlet procedural to sometimes be Icy or Dark.

  • Added more lane types to the Procedural Gauntlet possibilities.

  • Altered a Gauntlet train path to be more predictable.

  • Player graves will now be in camera focus when they die in Gauntlet, causing less erratic camera movement on death and keeping the focus on rescuing your friends.

Performance Improvements

  • Improved load times for all levels.

  • Improved memory usage for AI pathfinding.

Unity Version Upgrade-

  • We’ve updated Unity versions again, this time to fix issues with incorrect colour settings in all our animations. What does this mean for you? Stuff like less weird browns that are supposed to be red! I hope you didn’t like brown.

Visual Improvements

Hunt

  • Work is nearly complete on Harvest Hell- See above gif for comparison.

  • Frozen Fjord too is almost complete, see below.

Gauntlet

  • Improved the look of the Time Bubble ability again with a change for its textures and intensity, making it more clearly visible in different situations.

    • Added a deactivation animation for when the power ends, rather than just disappearing.

Fixes

Gameplay

  • Fixed inconsistent behaviour when both Finders Keepers and Deadly Meteors were active at the same time.

  • Stopped occasional error and crash when using “Next Map” option after a game of Hunt.

  • Stopped error and crash when using both Overload and Finders Keepers and collecting a powerup.
