Hello again Backers and Friends!
In addition to designing and implementing a whole bunch of new levels, the programming and design teams have been hooking up some new features:
- We now have a rough draft of our in-game store, which allows you to use the watts you either earn or buy to purchase power-ups, extra lives, and other fun items.
- We have some new obstacles and hazards to dodge including electricity that bounces around gears and cogs that disintegrate as you roll across them. The visual effects for these hazards are still in the works, but we'll share some screenshots with you once we have something that looks cool.
- There are now first drafts for two new pieces for our soundtrack. We also have first drafts for the sound effects for the first three worlds. And let me say, these first drafts sound amazing.
On top of all that, we have some new gear textures!
We posted this guy from the toyshop levels on our Facebook page a couple weeks ago:
In other news, we recently sent out some backer polls to everyone receiving physical rewards so we can start ordering and preparing them. If you have not responded to your poll yet, please do! The sooner we hear your feedback, the sooner we can order rewards. If you did not get a poll, it might be because you are not receiving physical rewards. If you feel as though you should have received one however, please let us know!
If you have any additional comments or concerns about your rewards, please feel free to send us a message here on Kickstarter, or to E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As always, thank you for your support, and feel free to contact us through blog comments,Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, or E-Mail us at email@example.com!
