Galactimecha, Z-Lushies, and more!
Several buttosn in Soluna will now take you to the updated town of Frostvale where, NSC players can FINALLY witness the awesomeness of Galactimecha! Only SC's will be able to continue playing as Galactimecha in the following quest though. These quests may seem easy on normal modes but I challenge you all to Xtreme. And on that note, good luck.
We fixed the missing Freeze Rays so you can now actually grab those again. We got our shop numbers confused and Mae and Vivi took care of that problem. They also handled all the weapon and mech coding with Blues' help for the specials. Thatw as all very helpful. Minar helped animate some of the enemy mech attacks so I could start on cutscenes which were overwelming and may be missing a key scene. Just know that yes, Mr. Z was directly involved with this. I wanted it to be subtle but now it may have been TOO subtle. May add an extra scene later.
Oh, and we have the SCM vectorized and being animated!
He doesn't have a name yet but it won't be a Steve Skysplitter. That said, some people mentioned they were hoping for more themed mechs. Feel free to post some SCM suggestions in terms of theme whether it be stat theme or like... cowboy themed (relax, just an example).
Some of you may comment on the release being kind of short but I personally love this release because it has a lot of replayability, especially if you post your scores against other players ( I really wish we had leaderboards). Also, these minigames took a lot of work and I'm going to try and get Warlic to do something fancy with them and I'm even playing around with modeling Galactimecha in 3D and we'll see if I can't get a simple Unity 3D project out for funsies. I'll probably lose steam on the project but it's a fun thing to keep my mind focused I guess.
Anywho, enjoy the release! It was stressful but this one was a lot of fun and I think it's Galactimecha's shining moment. Have some Happy Holidays for whichever holiday you may happen to celebrate, if none, enjoy your weekend. We out.
