UPDATE - Version 0.99 Beta
==========================

Here is an overview of the new changes:

I've made an overhaul of player ship and controls for unprecedented ease of use!

  • Player's ship motion/thrusters are massively simplified with simple WASD movement.
  • Player's weapons are now mounted on a turret allowing independent targeting of weapons with the mouse.
  • "Old School" control option still available for those who enjoy good old rotate/thrust style controls.

I've also made a complete overhaul of ship upgrade and enhancement system that allows incredible customisation!

  • 54 unique upgrades!
  • Player now simply gains levels as their score improves, and each level gained gives you one upgrade point to spend.
  • Upgrades control all facets of ship's improvement in the following areas: Guns, Ordnance, Shields, Hull, Engines & Squad.
  • No more waiting or hoping a particular coloured upgrade will drop - you choose exactly what you spend your points on!

There has also been a complete revision of the game interface during play making your current ship status clear and easy to see.

Also, a host of general game and graphics improvements, including tweaks to gameplay making it more fun than ever before!

I just played this game non-stop up to the 6th stage so far. I love it!

This game is really well done and its got a great feel to it, especially the explosions and other effects. The intro and music blew me away completely.

The game is very centered on the action and its obviously designed that way, but as a suggestion on how you might expand this game further, is adding more depth to it by a new gamemode, that will add a metagame, where you have a mothership that you fight along its side, repairing and resupplying yourself as you take on missions.

Furthermore, this metagame could introduce a world map that you progress on either in a linear path or freely.

This video could provide some inspiration: Youtube.com

Anyway, thats just food for thought. I'm going back to play this game and beat it. :D

@Reactorcore:

Great that you're enjoying the game :)

Your ideas on the metagame are excellent and exactly the kind of thing I have been contemplating for a long time. In fact that was the initial vision for Space Chunks II, however it just didn't pan out that way. One of the biggest stumbling blocks for me was simply coming up with compelling gameplay ideas for the campaign. What are the choices the player can make? Such as which sector to go to next, etc. How are these choices meaningful and how do they affect the game?

If you have any further thoughts or would like to discuss this in greater detail, send me a message, I'd love to hear from you. Otherwise, keep blowing chunks! :)

Alright, I'll send you a message to your ModDB PM inbox within the next few days.

There are a couple solid ideas that could work well, I'll just need some time to refine them, as I need to analyse the current game a bit more indepth and see how it could be implemented in a smart way. Once I have that, I should be able to provide you detailed plan how it could work.
