Another update is live!
It has been a crazy time since last update!
We ran out of ice at GDC, my cat died, Dave became a father, I got permission from Gabe Newell to put him in the game, our friend got married, and Ol’ Shrimpeyes’ eyes have somehow gotten even shrimper!
Here’s another gif showing some of the new content.
We have another new environment- The crypt- some new spells for the hero- Raging bull and Spirit Bow- some new weapons- Battle Axe, Flame Bow and Ice Staves- a new monster for the Eye Bat chain, five special challenges for players who need to up the difficulty, and about a billion tweaks and fixes!
See the full change list here
Have fun guys 🙂 and don’t feel to bad about my cat- he was 22 and lived a pretty great life- my sister made him a fake human dinner every night so he could think he’s stealing our dinner.
Good job on the update man, Its a pleasure to have brought such a great game
cheers 🙂 thanks for the support!!
When will the 0.5 update hit the humble store?
not quite sure- we’ve sent them the build, but it takes them a little while to approve and set it up- hopefully all good by tomorrow!
…and it’s there. Thanks for your info and thanks for this great update! This game is early-access-done-right 🙂
Yay! Just after finals are over! You guys are the best. My condolences for your cat, what was its name?
cheers, his name was Sampson 🙂 he was a very lazy persian
Lots and lots of awesomeness <3 .
Woke up at 4:30 to do physio for my messed up knee
Starts to snow mid-may
Super icy: cant really walk
Day status: bleh
Runs around in sheer joy, knee no longer hurts!
Quick update: knee still hurts, apperently Crawl updates have temporary medicinal properties…
hahaha awesome! 😀
Ermagherd, this looks so awesome! Can’t wait to have a crack at this! 😀 I was already getting a bit worried what was going on since we hadn’t heard anything for a while, but it all makes sense now. Condolences on your cat, and congrats to Dave!
yeah this one took longer than we wanted- it’s so easy to overlook just how much time something like GDC takes out of your schedule! Feels good to have this out, just fingers crossed we haven’t broken anything!
You know that sword which that old man has, when he hit that hydra like boss… I that sword looks like chool. Second thing: I like that permanent frog curse. Frog should have frog croan voice, when you press hit button. thank you
haha that’s an awesome idea, I’d love to build up some mystique around that sword!
Yeah that frog amulett is fun, but imho a bit too much, i mean i had it and i was a frog more time than i was human, the idea is fun, but you get no chance at all since you’re more frog than human, either buff the frog (regen maybe) or make it less frequent. Other than that, awesome update man :p
uhoh sorry Niblette- looks like i accidentally committed it with some debug values on the timer I was using for testing! it should be frogging you much less than that! Will fix on next patch!
Haha, no prob, was a bunch of fun for my friends to see me raging ^^
Sounds like that critter was spoiled. 🙂 Still sad to see a pet go, though. My cousin’s cat just turned 22 this month. He’s still getting around well and making his rounds on his territory. Any plans to add your cat to the game as a familiar for “our hero?”
haha cool idea- I would love to add a system for hero to gain pets/helpers, but it’s pretty low down on out massive list of desired features right now, so who knows if we’ll get a chance to play with the idea!
Bug report: Controls get messed up. I’m on a Macbook Pro, Mac OS X Yosemite; I’m using a couple of PS4 controllers connected via Bluetooth. Previous build of game works flawlessly, no configuration required. This build, upon getting into name select, all of us are prompted to redefine the buttons; we try, and the results seem random. After defining keys, the controllers stop working. At first certain buttons only, but at one point I had 2 out of 3 controllers just flat-out not sending any input at all. I know it’s not a hardware/connection/driver problem, because I immediately went and tested the controllers in another game without issue. And the previous build of Crawl worked fine; is there some way I can just skip the redefine buttons step if I wish?
Update: I went to “reset controls” in options, and it fixed everything.
I do hope that you guys will implement online multiplayer soon, my friends and I play Crawl a lot when we meet up, but now we all live quite far from each other so it is rare when we actually get the chance to play the game together, so we hope you guys will make online multiplayer happen soon so that we can play this game a lot, thanks guys you are the best, I support you guys a lot. PS: May your cat rest in peace Barney, and Dave congrats!!
Epic!, The new area looks really great! Definitely gonna buy this game now. Its nice that you guys have been adding much new content past time. The update also came out on my birthday :D!
I can’t wait to take on Gaben! Condolences for your cat, congrats to Dave!
Rip Cat 1913-2015 🙁 I still feel sorry for you cat
Congrats on the baby Dave! also, sorry to hear about your cat 🙁
Really appreciate you guys continuing to update and expand your game, even though you guys are clearly busy living your lives aswell. The game is a blast and I wish you guys best of luck for the future of the game.
This update seems to have caused an annoying bug to appear. In rooms with many objects and in the Hydra boss room many of the sprites seem to flicker out of existence, but was only visual. This stops once you break some objects, but since the pillars in the hydra room can’t be broken, there is nothing to be done.
The flickering only affected objects, not the monsters or the hero. Very annoying and distracting.
As said, this bug did not appear in prior versions.
yeah sorry about this- we’ve had a lot of similar reports and we’re doing our best to track it down- thanks for the info, every bit helps us get closer to figuring it out!
Also when I was fighting as the hydra the game crashed 🙁 anyway good work!
Well, what do i need to say?
I really do appreciate this game, but no one of my friends is up for game with me. ;-;
I hope that you guys add a multiplayer asap, because remotedesktop and teamviewer wont hold for long:D
keep this up, would like to donate a bit, dont even know where i can.
big props to you guys<3
can we get some insight into the bosses planned(or possibly boss ideas you guys are toying with) of later versions? I’m assuming you’re going to add a chimera-like boss(two heads up front one of a goat, one of a lion, and a snakes head for a tail) where two players control each head, and one controls the tail. if you guys are looking for boss ideas you may want to look further into greek mythology(p.s I LOVE the hydra boss 😀 )
At first I thought I might as well try the game and I’m glad I got it. Even as an early access it’s pretty awesome. Keep up the good work. This game really shows why graphics don’t really matter as long as the gameplay is good and they even let us relive the old times.
