Minor bug (or is it intentional?); Slugger/Defiance hitscans and Ranger grenades leave no bullet hole/scorch mark decals.

Also, the Particle Smasher does not fully reload from a single key press; it will load two shots, then go back to being idle. To fully reload it when fired dry, you have to hold the key down, causing the reload animation to play start to finish three times. If it's intentional you load cells one by one into the Smasher, gradually filling its supply, why doesn't it reload continuously like the Icarus Launcher?

The bullet hole thing was an oversight, though the particle smasher reloading one at a time was intentional, because it takes a long ass time and reloading from empty would force the player into that animation for a VERY long time, so I offered a compromise by letting you reload that weapon at your own pace, whereas the icarus launcher is significantly faster, even going from empty.

My take on the protagonist from Xexyz on the NES.

I'm fascinated by Tactical Sideharms and the Visions Of Power, but I'm looking forward to melee awesomeness with the Tech-Monk or Past-Linked.

I must admit that the wall kick mechanic is the best thing ever.

I'm hoping to get it out soon for you guys, but I'll be honest, I haven't even started coding any weapons, I've been working on art assets for one of the sets, but I can share them here to give you guys something to look at:



The laser hand's idle frame is gonna be replaced because right now it's too similar to the hand beam.

Maybe make that laser hand into a microwave hand. The microwave could act as an AOE BFG9000 where enemies shake or grow like in Duke Nukem 3d and then explode when in a certain range of the player. That would be pretty neat.

Oh don't worry, I've got everything planned how it's gonna work mechanically, I'm just talking about the hand gesture.

The striker and burst ball gestures look identical; will one of those be changed?

I know it's stupid, but I really hope the firing animation for the wave ball has you literally waving casually at your enemy...

As for other gestures to use for the laser, maybe metal horns?

Striker is gonna be a little different in that it's not a directly selectable weapon, you'll have to charge up into it, plus there's only so many hand gestures that'll work here, so it's a bit of a compromise. The Wave ball is gonna be a hard horizontal sweep across the screen, like a horizontal karate chop, and finally no, no metal horns, the laser is gonna be strong as hell so I'm planning on a more intense clawed hand gesture.
