A wild beta appears!

by amul on

After months of hard work, far too much caffeine and some recent crunching, and many other random things that happened in the meantime:
Today we release the first public beta version of Roche Fusion!

Applause!

If you cannot wait, or don't like spoilers, you can download it here.

But here is an overview of what is new, ordered by how awesome I think it is:


  • Music
    And a whole unique 10 minutes, arranged in three songs, of it too, all custom made!

  • Online Leaderboards
    That's right! You can now submit your scores to our server, and compete against each other!

  • Epic Ultimate Mode
    Extremely rare and end-game, but absolutely awesome. You'll know when you got it!

  • Improved upgrade system
    Pick up small orbs dropped by enemies for instant stacking boosts to your weapons, and get much more exciting and bigger upgrades every time you level up!

  • New upgrades
    Most spectacularly, the black hole gun, which does exactly what you would expect it to do!
    Further you now have the option to upgrade your main weapon with spread, if aiming is just too snobbish for you.
    Or if like me you suck at dodging, maybe go for the shield upgrade, take your pick!

  • Improved graphics
    Basically, we added more bloom. Oh, also: nicer particle effects, and you really gotta check out that black hole!

  • Improved HUD
    More bars, boxes, and other things. Also fancy text pop-ups telling you how awesome you are. Literally!

  • New and more refined enemy behaviour
    Some of them almost seem to have a mind of their own. Be careful what you shoot, they may not like it!

  • Also: Explosions
    Now in 3D! Also bigger, better, faster, stro--.. or something.

Apart from that there are even more smaller things: little additions, changes here and there.
Check out the change log included in the download for more details!

But now you really read enough, go forth and blow up stuff!
