Version 0.8 out

Hi all !

Eight months without news. Quite a long time for such a small project. I’ve been quite busy with work and it left me little time/motivation to work on the game. One good side of such a situation is that it gives time to think about what needs to be done in the game.

And now that I found some time to work on it, I’ve been able to finish the next version of the game. This version mainly concentrates on adding new powers to enemies as well as adding decors to the game which was too empty to my taste. I still have some work to do on the graphics to improve them a little but I think I reached the visual feeling I wanted. The game now has a Spookyedia to allow player to check all enemies and boss powers after the first encounter. I also added a small story book as an introduction. Still need to work on the text though…

The new version is only available for Windows at the moment and still uses the alpha fund system of Desura. I’ll add a free demo version next year for those of you who have not had the opportunity to try it.
