If there's any week where you'll really notice that we're back working on the sound effects, let this be the one! There are so many new weapon sound effects in the game now, we're super excited to hear what y'all think! To make our job easier and pretend we wrote a long introduction here, let's just list them all. New sound effects for: Chicken Sword, Energy Sword, Energy Screwdriver, Hyper Launcher, Rusty Revolver, Smartgun, Sawed-off Shotgun, Double Shotgun, Super Slugger, Flak Cannon, Flak Explosion, Super Flak Cannon, Super Flak Explosion, Wave Gun, Grenade Launcher, all Golden weapons, Heavy Crossbow, Super Crossbow, Flame Cannon, Blood Hammer, Blood Launcher, all Lightning Weapons and the Rogue rifle.
Other than that, there's some proper bug fixing and preparations for future updates going on. Heck yes! Have fun!
Wait, what. We've been in Early Access for a year now? Wow! This calls for a celebration!
It's kind of absurd to think that for the past year, we've streamed about 520 hours of Nuclear Throne development and released almost 50 updates of the game. From less than a 100 Google results, Nuclear Throne now has over 300,000 Google results. There are over 40,000 YouTube videos, the majority likely by Sleepcycles, Bisnap and TenguDrop. The Nuclear Throne group has over 5,000 Members, we're listed in dozens of Steam Curator Lists and the game has performed super well for us.
We owe all of this to our amazing team, and to all of you. We can't express just how thankful we are for every single one of you that bought the game, but also those that show up in streams, that create weekly challenges, that offer feedback and criticism, that ask questions in the livestreams or make fan art, fan writing, fan music, fan games or even figurines.
So let's get to update #46! We've got Joonas back! That means there's a lot of cool new sound effects. Jukio made a beautiful minimalist tune that plays in the background after you've defeated a boss. There's also a ton of balancing, and three ridiculous new weapons. Go check the log!
We've been working hard behind the scenes on some future features too. Paul's been creating beautiful enemies and tiles for an upcoming secret area, and we've taken our first baby steps towards seeding. It isn't quite working yet, but we'll hopefully have some first test with that soon! Enjoy!
