We are back after a long time of silence with the introduction of a large update for the game. Without further delay, here’s the changelog :
— NEW MOVEMENTS MECHANIC —
- Added bounce ability: if jump button is pressed before landing, the player will bounce off the wall when touching it (this consumes boost gauge);
- Super jump boost: You can now use the “Super Jump” ability at any time, but the jump boost depends on the gauge state;
- Wall-dodge + boost: After a wall-dodge, you can press the jump button in order to use the boost ability;
- Wall-dodges: Reload 10% of the boost gauge.
Movements are still a work in progress. Some values and codes will be adjusted. Please, take this into consideration.

— “PRE-PRE-PRE-EARLY-WORK-IN-PROGRESS” IN GAME EDITOR AVAILABLE! —
We are publishing this feature in order to test it outside of our circle of developers.
Our wish is to build an easy-to-use level editor without limiting your options for the level design. It is the reason why in this first version, there are modular meshes that you will need to put in place one by one.
According to your feedback, we could develop/shift toward a system with prefabricated components.
Do not hesitate to send us your maps (from the forum), we will add them to a server dedicated to your creations.
That’s all for today. If you don’t have access to the game, the team encourage you to join us on facebook/twitter and to follow the instructions 🙂
