Catlateral Damage Indie Cameos


Hey everyone!

The latest update for Catlateral Damage is now available! This one includes a bunch of cool new stuff for you to play around with.

First off, I’ve added several new objects to knock over based on other great indie games like Guacamelee!, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, and Goat Simulator. (You can check out all the cameos in this album.) In addition to these cameos, I’ve also added a new bonus level: the Box Purradise! This level is made up of tons of cardboard boxes and has lots of cat food and toys to swat at. There may be upgrades and power-ups hidden within the different box structures, too.

Box Purradise


That’s not all! There are also a couple new features in this update. In Objective Mode, the scoring structure has changed from an infinite stream of levels to just 4 (plus any bonus levels you encounter). Bonus levels now give more points at the end and don’t stop your progression if you don’t complete their objectives. So keep an eye out for those special keys to get some bonus points! You also get bonus points for time left over when you complete an objective. Your highest score after completing all levels is then recorded so you can compete with others.


In Litterbox Mode, you can now select the level type you want to play, rather than just playing the same sequence of levels from Objective Mode without a timer or objectives. (For this reason, Litterbox scores are no longer sent to the Steam leaderboards.) You can also load previously saved levels this way. If you find a level layout you like in either Objective Mode or Litterbox Mode, you can pawse the game and select “Save Level” to be able to play in it again in Litterbox Mode.


On top of all this, the game now has full Japanese localization thanks to Kakehashi Games! You can switch between English and Japanese in the Options menu under the “Other” tab. Of course, this update also includes a bunch of tweaks and bug fixes to improve the overall experience.

And with that, here are the full release notes:

+ Added 23 cameo objects for knocking over
+ Added the ability to save levels from the pawse menu and load them in Litterbox Mode
+ Added full Japanese language localization
+ Added a keyboard shortcut to switch between fullscreen and windowed modes (Alt + Enter)
+ Added a brand new bonus level: Box Purradise
+ Added photos of Sockington and Penny
* Reworked the Objective Mode scoring structure to restrict it to 4 levels
* Changed how scores are recorded on leaderboards: Litterbox scores are no longer recorded and Objective scores have been reset due to the change in scoring structure
* Changed how bonus levels work: they now give more points at the end and you do not have to complete their objectives to progress
* Tweaked some procedural data for object and furniture placement
* Tweaked player movement a bit to make it more precise and make jumps more forgiving
* Improved the UI for selecting screen resolution and quality on the options screen
* Fixed bugs with crouching, rooms with missing doors, miscellaneous colliders, and more

To celebrate the release of this update, the game will be 10% off for a week! Now's a great time to check it out if you haven't yet.


Enjoy!

-Chris

I definitely see what you're saying. Making a fun, 2 minute demo into a full game that doesn't get boring is one of the main challenges I've faced early in development. I believe I've solved that with a design that includes procedural level generation and a solid metagame with collectibles, unlockables, and other gameplay modifiers. Feel free to check out this dev blog post that outlines the vision for the game moving forward: Catlateraldamage.tumblr.com

Long story short, levels will be procedurally generated and there will be a lot more gameplay content than there is in the current demo. It's not trying to ride the "funny simulator game" wave (it was actually made before Goat Simulator and the like), it'll be an actual game. :)
