Update for Invertical available

The unique and charming puzzle platform game Invertical has been updated with a number of improvements.

Art Pass
The graphics have been tweaked slightly to give a slightly lower contrast, a bit more detail here and there. You’ll also see that now instead of the black borders at the side of the screen there is a grey pattern.

Level Design
The true enjoyment of Invertical is trying to figure out your route. Whilst the game needs some platforming challenge, aspects of it were maybe a little too hard. Now the more complex platforming elements have been simplified. Make no mistake though, this is still a tough game to complete! Especially if you try to collect all the books and scrolls! If you’ve had difficulty getting past a certain level, get the update and see if you can complete it now.

  • Controls: New controller support and improved control system.
  • Movement: You’ll no longer come to a stop when you land. Keep on running!
  • Front End: New GUI, most notably the Chapter Select screen.
  • Bug Fixes: As always, there’s been a host of bug fixes.

It is currently available on IndieCityItch.io and Desura.

Invertical gets a major new update

The latest update to Invertical is now available with loads of new content as well as a host of improvements!

Better Control
Invertical now supports controller input. It has been designed to work with the Xbox controller but ought to be compatible with most game controllers, however the button layout may not be quite so logical. For many people using a controller is a more natural experience so if you’re uncomfortable with using the keyboard controls, this is for you. So long as you have a controller plugged in before launching the game you can freely switch between using the keyboard or controller. On the note of keyboard controls, you can now use the Up key to jump and down key to invert. This way if you’ve a large keyboard or for the younger gamer, smaller hands, this means less stretching!

New Start
The very first level has been completely changed. It will now introduce the player to the gameplay concepts of how and when to invert, rather than training the player on jumping. I’ve also changed the artwork so it is a little less of an assault on the eyes.

Bonus Levels
There are 150 collectible items within the many levels of Invertical, but why do you need to collect them? Well now you have an answer. Collecting all the books and scrolls in the chapter will unlock a unique bonus level. These levels have an extra objective to complete along the way, such as arming up to scare away a monster or retrieving Mrs Gragglepot’s cats.

Exploration
The old Great Big World has been replaced by a new area called The Invert World. Here you will find 15 rooms to explore and lots of books and scrolls to collect. Unlocked when you complete the main story, it is an extra area to potter around in and release your inner urge to collect.

Alternate Ending
In the previous version of Invertical there was a right and wrong answer once you caught the final portal. This meant that you might not unlock the Invert World (or Great Big World as it used to be). Now this has been changed to an alternate ending that explores Simon’s character.

Getting to Know Simon
Simon has always longed for adventure, much like many of us (partly why I play games!) but what would you do if thrust into this situation? Would you suddenly become a hero or cower in a corner? The introduction to each level has been expanded to explore this and give you a greater insight into Simon’s state of mind.

And Much More!
If I keep going this post will be far too long but there’s been many more improvements. From fine tuning levels to an improved front end, you’ll find Invertical is a much better experience than before… and it was already a fun game to begin with!

Buy it now!
You can buy the latest version of Invertical from IndieCity for just £1.49. If you’ve previously bought the game on there just use the IndieCity client to update it!

Android version of X-Orbtek Free gets an update!

A new update should shortly be available for the Android version of X-Orbtek. There have been a number of improvements to gameplay and stability but the one you’ll spot first is that the game has been renamed to X-Orbtek Free. Have a quick look through the changes:

  • Renamed to identify it as a free game.
  • Music has been changed to Deceased Superior Technician’s Psykick.
  • Fix for issue where game could hang when player was near borders.
  • Spawning improvements to get the game to try its best to spawn orbs, enemies and powerups in clear space when possible.
  • Improvements to the “Stalker” movements.
  • Border around the game level should now show correctly.
  • Balancing tweaks.
  • “Invite” button added to Scoreboard.
  • Minor UI fix on Scoreboard.
  • Theme is shown as locked in the Options. Previously this information was hidden.

Progress on Captain Getsu

Development for Captain Getsu is plodding along nicely with some varied levels, awesome music and of course, cool gameplay. Whilst the core gameplay and amount of content available hasn’t progressed as quickly as hoped, a lot of the underlying things such as a save system and also a menu have come to fruition quite nicely. Previously these have been bolted on so that a prototype can be released, however it makes it a more daunting task to then implement anything new so this time, it is being done right first time around!

For January 2012, Captain Getsu may have seen its last update while other projects get tidied up a little, however a target of Monday 24th March has been set for the release of the full free version of Captain Getsu. It’ll be tough but I’m hopeful that all the planned content will be completed, along with a few “nice to haves” in time!

Update (24/01): Target launch date already moved >_< Whilst it is a realistic target, work is also planned for the two HexStackIt games and The Really Annoying Game. The new date is set for the free versions of all four games!
