We're back again with more news!

But, first of all, we know that we have not been that active here in a long time, but we hope to be a little more active now. So, if there is anything about the game or our technology you would like us to cover in the future, please let us know! :) We can't make any promises to cover it, but if we know what you are interested in seeing, we can at least try.

I'm currently considering to maybe live stream when I do some upgrades to the players animation and blending tree, showing some of our tools, technology and pipeline. Maybe not too in-depth, but what's needed for the updates I have in mind at least. If that sounds interesting, please let us know! (We can most likely edit and shorten it a little bit and post like a video afterwards as well)

(Bonus screenshot from our asset editor when viewing a section of the blend tree and state machine)

Asset editor: Player animation

Now that's enough of that for now, let's get to the news stuff!

New level and new theme

It’s time to introduce Cloudbuilt's hottest level yet! Maybe a little too hot for some, but don’t worry! Even though the level is surrounded by blazing flames and the level itself is burning, you won’t take any damage from the fire. Though, the red light, embers and smoke might make things harder to see at times. Better keep your eyes peeled.

New level and new theme

New Enemy: Mine lobber

You might be aware of the Drop Mines? Small innocent mines, often attached to the ceiling to drop down and greet guests that come to visit them (quite well-mannered one could say).
I bet most of you thought there were a little too few of them in the previous levels?
Let me introduce the Mine Lobber! They will never run out of their supplies, ensuring you will get all the mines you need, and maybe, probably even more…

New Enemy: Mine lobber

Stay tuned for more updates soon!

It just kills me inside thinking that this could have had multiplayer arena mode. Visuals and platforming looks awesome.

I think this has been the first time that I bought a game on the day of its release! :)

So will there be a level editor? If so, this game is will flourish massively, because I expect all those old Quake 3 trick jumpers and Mirror's Edge players to drop in and do their thing. :)

This game will be an instant buy from me, if there's a level editor.

Will it work on DX 9? XP?

I can’t say for sure if it will run on XP since we haven’t tested the game on a XP machine. Since OpenGL does not require any specific OS it is possible that the game will run on XP, but as I said we haven’t tested it yet.
The biggest problem I see if you are running a DX 9 card, is that it might not be powerful enough to run the game.

Are there plans for a post-release Linux port? Voted this on greenlight immediately because the trailer looked great. Also, is that line-shading style in the game or just the trailer?

Thanks for voting! Yes that is the style we are using in-game, all of the gameplay in the trailer is in-game footage.

We haven’t made any definite plans for post-release right now, but if there is an interest for a Linux version we look into it after launch. We use OpenGL and most of our engine is made up of platform-independent components, so it is entirely possible that we can support it down the line.
