Early Access -peli

Voit pelata näitä pelejä viipymättä - jo niiden kehitysvaiheissa.

Huomio: Tämä Early Access -peli saattaa muuttua merkittävästi sen kehityksen aikana. Jos et ole innostunut pelin pelaamisesta sen nykyisessä muodossa, haluat ehkä odottaa, kunnes peli on pidemmälle kehitetty. Lue lisää

Kehittäjien kertomaa:

Miksi Early Access?

“Nuclear Throne was originally created during MOJAM 2013 as a tiny, two day prototype called 'Wasteland Kings'. We never stopped adding little things to the game, even as we moved on to other projects. We had livestreamed development during MOJAM, and decided to continue doing that while we worked on a full version of the game.”

Miten kauan Early Access -vaihe kestää?

“The game will be in Early Access until it is done, at which point it'll launch on PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Until that point, we release weekly updates (each weekend) and livestream every Tuesday and Thursday frmo 1PM CET to 5PM CET on http://twitch.tv/Vlambeer.”

Miten täysi versio eroaa Early Access -versiosta?

“Nuclear Throne will feature seven full worlds of procedural action, four main bosses, tons of secrets, more than 75 weapons, 10 mutants, dozens of powerful mutations and local multiplayer.”

Millainen on Early Access -version nykyinen tila?

“The game is fully stable and playable, and has new additions made to it every weekend.”

Hinnoitellaanko peli toisin Early Accessin aikana ja sen jälkeen?

“If you want to wait until the game is done, it'll be available for $11,99 after development is complete. We're not doing any sales or bundles until the game is out of Early Access - we want people that really care about the game to buy and play it now. If you're curious as to how a game like this evolves or grows, now is the time to jump in.”

Miten yhteisö otetaan mukaan kehitysprosessiin?

“We livestream development every Tuesday and Thursday from 1PM CET to 5PM CET, are very active in our forums and upload a new build every single weekend.”

Update #40 - Shells of Fire - Week of August 16th

20 elokuu(ta) 2014

This update was a bit late (and this changelog even later), but please bear with us, it was literally made just after getting home from gamescom, in a night of frenzied coding by Jan Willem, then uploaded between arriving at gamescom while Rami was moving apartment in the spare day he had before flying towards the US for PAX Prime. It adds three fiery new weapons, and fixes some of the new coop bugs!

We honestly don't know how we got anything done this week at all.

    Features
  • Three brand new types of flame shotgun. Enjoy.

    Fixes
  • Coop should no longer skip levels!

    Misc
  • Some updates to 0_1 loop tiles.

We're going back to highlighting community stuff really soon, just need to survive PAX for now. We might end up skipping a single update as to not burn out. Thanks for your patience!

Update #39 - Quality Time - Week of August 8th

10 elokuu(ta) 2014



This week's update is all about quality over quantity. We'll keep it brief, partially because this build had to haphazardly uploaded from Vancouver airport: It features some significant bug fixes, a new B skin, some good tweaks, and oh, a whole new loop-exclusive bossfight. Yeah. Good luck!

Note: The Linux build did not build with the WiFi at Vancouver airport. Therefore, we're skipping a Linux build for this week. Next week, both Steam, Humble and Linux builds should all be at the same version again. Sorry about that!

    Features
  • A loop-exclusive bossfight, still very, very, very work in progress.
  • A new B-skin!

    Balancing
  • Assassins have been made about a millisecond faster with their attacks.
  • Dog Guardians have slightly less HP.
  • Dog Guardians now drop ammo or health.

    Fixes
  • Main menu now plays the complete track.
  • Fixed even more music errors.
  • Fixed some bugs regarding chicken getting revived by mutations.
  • Portal can no longer spawn outside the level.

    Misc
  • Some new tips.

From Vancouver Airport, enjoy playing! Hopeful to see quite a few of you at gamescom and PAX Prime in the next two weeks. Stay tuned for small but fun news!

Do you know crunch? I mean, do you truly know the incredibly visceral, powerful and satisfying feedback that is crunch? Now go into Nuclear Throne and smack a maggots nest with a sledgehammer. Go on, I don't mind. Being inanimate text that a person typed and then abandoned, I have no sense of time. It'll be like kicking good vibes across a punch bowl (I'm also hit-and-miss with simile).

Okay, you're back! How was it-- Ohhh, I know that look! Your eyes have the enlightened glint of one who has tried the good stuff, the real deal, the prime reserve. You can't go back, now. Now, you know crunch. The real crunch. This is Nuclear Throne, and it's appeal cannot be simply summed up in a few words. It's referred to as an "action roguelike-like(-like)" because it is difficult to put into a genre. Because it is its own genre. If I were to call it anything, it would probably be "Randomly-Generated Action Crunch with Permadeath", which I am predicting will be a cereal by 2019 (sans permadeath, unless we don't have randomly-generated cereals by then, in which case I WANT to die).

Everything about this game is crunchy. There's a power-up based leveling system (further referred to as they are in game, "mutations"), a charming and variant cast of playable characters, tons of weapons (about 73 as of this writing, but I was just in on a stream where they rather liked my suggestion of adding nunchuks), crazy enemies, b-skins, rule-altering pickups and even local 2-player! And the art and music-- Ohhh, the art and music! The beautiful and detailed pixel art, the energizing (sometimes haunting) tracks and impeccable sound design frankly shocked me. Such character and atmosphere I found myself immersed in!

The game is so easy to pick up, and yet the way you develop your character is incredibly deep. The developers waste none of their time (and consequently, your time) on anything that doesn't feel just awesome. Sure, "Mutation A" doesn't seem very good, at first. But once you learn more about "Characters D and E" and how they synergize splendidly with "Mutation A" when paired with "Mutation G", you get an "Aha" moment! Like a challenging, yet ultimately rewarding puzzle, Nuclear Throne holds a plethora of "Aha" moments for those willing to scratch past the surface and experiment with the MASSIVE number of possible character builds. And you need no mutation to love a samurai chicken! C'mon.

The developers are two guys, who comprise Vlambeer, and four others who handle the art, music and sound. They're the most down-to-earth, approachable and generally cool guys to ever make a game, probably (permission to put that on the back cover = granted). They generally update the game every Saturday with new characters, baddies, weapons, difficulty balancing and bug fixes. They even stream themselves developing said changes every Tuesday and Thursday on their Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/vlambeer)! And they take feedback like pros! None of this "bleuuu, you don't like my game, banned and deleted" business. They're good people.

Oh, and you'll be dying a lot. I didn't "beat" the game until I had already logged around 100 hours (there's an end-boss, but you loop back to the beginning with higher difficulty upon defeating it), but that didn't stop me from thoroughly enjoying every minute up until that point and after! This is a fantasticly addictive game, with a fantastic community and fantastic developers that is already easy to recommend. The fact that it promises to only get better is just gravy!

And yes, I did a "let's play":

I love Vlambear, so this was definitely on my radar.

PROS
- Range of characters.
- Easy to get into.
- Regular updates.
- Fantastic developers.

CONS
- The perk system could use some work.

Other than the one con, which can easily be fixed, this game is a full recommendation from me.
(If you buy it off the humble store Vlambear get a cut off the sale and it supports the humble staff!)

Update (8/8/14): Seems the perk system has been improved so that complaint can be removed.

Update (29/8/14): After further addiction to this game, I can confirm it is a solid 10/10. It is by far in my top 10 games ever made.

While still under development, Nuclear Throne is a sublime game which will burn your hours. As challenging as it is fun, it harkens to older games. The different characters offer a wide variety of playstyles add to that the randomness of the drops and mutations and you'll get a great replay value. The soundtrack by kozilek is a great addition to this game, creating the adequate atmosphere for a post apocalyptic wasteland shootout.

TL;DR: Vlambeer delivers again

Incredibly addictive, action packed and fun game! Great job from developers who know how early access should look like. Game feels like it is finished already (at least for me). Constant patches (at the moment patch 39) add a lot of stuff which improves the game, from simple fixes to new bosses, secret levels and skins. Definitely a game that will keep you occupied with step by step progress and feeling of achievement after completing levels and beating our nemesis. I fully support and recommend this game.

Pros:
-Addictive
-genuinely fun
-tons of multiple character build options
-fun characters
-constant challenge with looping and patches
-heaps of weapons to try out!
-great music!
-helpful community which can also provide custom challenges

Cons:
-some people don't like early access
-kind of hard but it depends on player
-wouldn't recommend for epileptic players

Other than that i can just tell you: "GO PLAY IT NOW!"

Ah, Early Access at it's finest. Vlambeer has really outdone themselves with this one. First of all, look at my hours. Do you think I'm gonna recommend this game or not? HELL YEAH I'M GONNA RECOMMEND IT, AND HERE'S WHY!

Nuclear Throne is a tough as nails roguelike-alike top down shooter with fast paced action and simple RPG elements with randomly generated levels. All of the different characters have unique abilities and playstyles, making them more than reskins, These unique abilities allow you to experiment different play styles with different weapons and mutations (perks). The punchy and crunchy sound effects make this game even better!
Here are the characters so far:

• Fish, a Creature from the Black Lagoon look-alike who can dodge roll and obtain more ammo. Last day before retirement.
• Crystal, a literal crystal with more HP and an ability to shield herself in a crystal shield. Family.
• Eyes, a walking ball of eyes who can pull enemies towards him and deflect enemy projectiles. All these thoughts.
• Melting, a sad melting man who only has 2 HP - but can blow up corpses, which can lead to some hilarious hijinks. Everything hurts.
• Plant, a bellsprout with lips who can run around with ease and plant vines to trap enemies and use it as a sense of direction. Kill kill kill.
• Yung Venuz (my fav), a hip-hop Venusian triangular guy who can shoot two bullets at the same time at half the firerate, and has a faster reload time. He's also a g. #verifyvenuz
• Steroids, a beefy meathead who starts packed with ammo and can dual-wield weapons. Time to flex.
• Robot, a cute machine who can find better weapons and eat weapons for ammo or HP. Kill all humans.
• Chicken, a rambo samurai thing who can enter a focus mode. She can also lose her head when she reaches 0 HP and grow her head back when she gets more health. Focus.
• Rebel, a female bandit who can summon ally bandits and shoot projectiles in a circle upon taking damage. A new generation.
• Horror, a sentient blob of rads who can pick from 5 mutations instead of the standard 4. He can also use his rads to create a powerful beam - but you'll lose your rads if you actually hit an enemy, which can mean you'll level up slower. The horror.

Everything about NT is interesting - the character designs, the enemy designs, the level designs, the music, sound effects, and even the lore that's up for interpretation. Another cool thing is that the devs stream development on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and they're cool dudes! I'm too shy to talk to them directly, but they're awesome and crazy people you NEED to pay attention to.
This game is just insane, and I love how you can be a Plant or a triangle with a gun. That's just... amazing...
I've been in love with this game ever since the MOJAM prototype "Wasteland Kings," so please Vlambeer... turn this into something AMAZING!
Even if it's not done, I'm pretty sure this will be my Indie Game of the Year.

I'll have to thank:
Jan Willem Nijman, Rami Ismail, Paul Veer, Jukio Kallio, Joonas Turner, and Justin Chan. (and Doseone for the YV voice)
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna play me some Nuclear Throne. #teamvenuz #poppop
