Feature Additions:

  • New Boss:
    • Imp Overlord
      • Credits to Seria-Myouna for the idea and Daimera for the sprites. You guys rock!

    • Nematocyst Nozzle (unique)
    • Captain’s Brooch
    • Tesla Coil
    • Mortar
    • Photon Jetpack

    • Meat Nugget
    • Sawmerang
    • Snowglobe
    • Imp Overlord’s Tentacle (unique)
  • New music track for Sky Meadow and Ancient Valley
  • Two new music tracks for high tier boss fights
  • Previous music tracks have been remastered
  • Headstomper damage now scales exponentially with fall height, rather then linearlly
  • Headstomper damage cap removed
    • This was intended to reward falling from great heights as an intro to the battle. Falling from smaller heights will hit for much less, and falling from bigger heights will hit for much more.
  • Enemy missiles are now displayed as red on low graphic settings
  • The Monster Log now has a Table of Contents
  • The Item Log has been readjusted to fit for future items
  • Burning Witness no longer stacks bonuses past the first kill, but refreshes the duraction
  • Burning Witness bonus movespeed increased
  • The Wandering Vagrant, Ancient Wisp, and Imp Overlord all drop unique items at a 15% chance along with the Magma Worm
  • Bitter Root capped at +300% bonus health (38 Bitter Roots)
  • Boxing Gloves now suffer from diminishing returns at the same rate as Concussion Grenades
  • Rope grabbing code improved to account for highly increased movespeeds
  • Gold denominations have been changed
    • Small coins now represent 1 (same as before)
    • Coins now represent 5 (from 10)
    • Gold coins now represent 25 (from 50)
    • Platinum coins now represent 125 (from 200)
    • Bag of Coins represent 625 (new)
    • Platinum Bag of Coins represent 3125 (new)
    • Net gold dropped from monsters have not been changed
  • The game no longer uses Ultracrypt, because it would interfere with FRAPS and non-Windows 7 Computers.
    • Yes, this means the save files from previous builds will not work! We have included a save file with everything unlocked EXCEPT for the new items to compensate. Sorry!
  • Health bars now display more intuitively
    • Previously: Red bar represented first 3000 health, orange bar the next 3000, and the yellow bar the rest. This meant that the yellow bar could hold much more health than either orange or red bar
    • Now: Red, orange, and yellow represent a third of the total health
    • Health bars are also capped in size at 200 pixels wide. While it’s still very wide, we think its part of the charm to see large health bars (and to take them right down!)
  • GameMaker has been updated from 8.1.91 to 8.1.141. While we can’t recreate the bugs on our own computers, this may result in fixing a variety of GameMaker engine bugs for some users.

 

Bug Fixes:

  • Plasma chain and ‘plasma count’ error
  • Save files would sometimes delete/not save correctly
  • The Vagrant instantly fired its orbs in a cluster while Unstable Watch is activated
  • Magma worm grants a stack on the Hit List every time it goes off the screen
  • The Watch description still says 10 seconds while it was changed to 7
  • While playing coop the Lights Out ability on the bandit refreshes both players CD’s
  • The life bars are still extremely long after playing for 2 hours
  • (COOP) Player two cannot pause the game
  • Sometimes previously unlocked items relocked after restarting the game
  • Backup Drones sometimes wouldn’t attack monsters.
  • Backup Drone description was off by 2 seconds
  • Massive leech healed less than intended
  • Stacking different buffs/debuffs could result in strange movement speed and attack speed interactions
  • Movement speed is reduced while having a large number of goat hooves and buying witnesses
  • When teleporting with the invincibility shield you are invincible for a long time
  • Prison shackles were not working
