It’s time for the weekly development update. And I am glad to tell you that I was able to lock up some new content from both Stamm and Tobi!
Our featured image shows Hendrik mid-air, with rain and thunder surrounding him. The shot is part of the latest addition to Blown Away: the hardcore mode. We feel that the game is perfect for an extra challenge mode, where players with fast reaction times and a quick mind can show their skills.
This is from the same world (the Broken Fields stage, not the exact same level) in normal mode. The normal mode has nicer weather and is not as hectic and stormy.
Every tax officers dream can come true in this normal mode level of the Lost Documents stage. Three batteries for maximum teleport potential, even if you make a mistake, and everything is neat and in order.
Not so much in this one, though. Mayhem and disarray rule the hardcore mode. As an avid Diablo player, I had hoped for a perma-death feature, but apparently we’re not that hardcore. Lucky you! By the way, I just realized, we can see a new face in this screenshot. As far as I remember, we did not have the ghost in his bottle featured on the blog. He’s a pretty nice dude, compared to fire spitters and cactus guys, this much I will tell you. What exactly he does, will be revealed in a later blog. Maybe next week? Tobi?
Tobi’s segment ends with a teaser and there is more, where that one came from! Stamm’s part is all teaser.
Hear ye, hear ye! We are in talks to partner up with a shop hosting site to launch a brand new Black Pants Store. With two (or even more?) games being released in the near future, we decided it was time to get going with some sweet merch. I can’t wait to wear those awesome designs in public! More updates on motives and items on the store will follow, soon™
BOOM! Dropping a teaser for Stamm’s secret projet right here, right now. The project does not have a name or release date yet, but this is what Stamm’s been covertly working on. Not everything in this screenshot is final and subject to change, but it is just so beautifully drawn. Since it’s a teaser and you have eyes, I won’t talk about what we can see here, I will just reel you in a little more with…
SLOTH! BARBECUE! HM! *drops mic*
That’s it for this week. Make sure to check in next week for more Black Pants news. It also never hurts to tell your friends about your favorite dev blog 🙂
