The Kiwi's TaleWitchBlasterDerelict Blow Stuff Up

Derelict update

Although I haven't had much spare time to work on it, progress on Derelict is going pretty well. I had an extended playtest session on the two player co-operative mode on Saturday, and it went much better than I had expected, so it almost feels ready. I expect to have the next revision out in a couple of weeks.

Two recent changes are demonstrated in this screenshot. One is a Call of Duty esque damage indicator showing the direction which you're being attacked from. The other is a new set of textures (that came from a free model pack on the Blitz3D forum) which give the ship a much better look and feel.

Also, Anthony did a cool bee for WitchBlaster on the weekend (though I haven't implemented it in the game yet). Check it out:

Those new textures look good - They add something more to the already thick atmosphere... And some of the original textures were a bit horrible (for which I happily take the blame :))


also ::points:: Nice bee!

Cool, glad you like the textures. Not sure if you saw, but they're also going to be in Firestart.

Don't blame yourself for the textures in the previous release, I was happy to put whatever I could get my hands on into the game - which is why there's still those horrible models!
