Hello, Ladies. And Gents.
I'd like to let my wonderful readers know that the Early Access version of Papilio is now available for purchase on itch.io! That's right, for the low price of USD $4.99 you can help support the development of this game in exchange for hours and hours of entertainment at your fingertips.
Additionally, the game is now also available on Indie Game Stand, where I will periodically offer the Alpha at discounted prices!
Changes for the paid version (v0.41 Alpha) include:
- A new Survival Mode which pits you against an endless onslaught of increasingly tougher and more numerous enemy waves to help hone your skills! No extra lives, no special powerups. Only weapon switch items are granted to you in this mode to help you adapt to the enemies at hand. And if you happen to be good enough, even bosses may eventually show up to try and stop you...
- New hidden bosses and EX endbosses can be unlocked if you manage to find secret bonuses in a level. Be warned though, they're a lot tougher than you might think... (note: not yet present in Stage 3)
Additionally, a brand new demo version is also available on the same page. Both the paid and demo versions have had difficulty balancing changes to help make the game a lot fairer and give you a fighting chance. So what are you waiting for? If you want to give this game a go, head on over to the above link. Your purchase will help support this and many other future game projects dedicated to keeping the fire of the old school alive.
Here is a video demonstration of the game's SURVIVAL MODE, where I explain how to use the Green Weapon Powerup.
Until next time, stay hyper my friends.
Cool Old Guy
