Chester One Remaster - Alpha v0.0.3!



Week 3. Build 3. Here we go!

New/Restored Features
The 'Press Start' screen and the start menu have been combined into one WIP artsy screen.
Controller rumble for character footsteps, landing, and wallsliding. Going to be adding in options to customize your rumble settings in a future build.
New mouse-cursor from the Cursor-Universe. Hoping to add some simple animations to him in a future build.
Game now opens to a loading screen instead of just taking ~15 seconds to open up. Still looking to improve the loading time of this intro screen.

Adjustments
Reworked jumping and air movement to hopefully feel a little more natural
Pretty much every Chester had it’s basic movement adjusted in some way or another. Trying to focus on making each Chester really feel like a different and unique character in the remaster and movement is going to be a big part of that.
Update to Bit-Chester’s companion movement. Instead of orbiting the player and being generally useless it will now track to any enemy you damage or get hit by and idly sit by it being useless! (Still need to add attacks in for the little guy.)
BLOCKSTER now attacks by launching shockwaves when he lands instead of a normal bullet attack. Going to be fine tuning this in future builds/power it up with leveling.

Bug Fixes
Fixed a bug that caused items to not load correctly after the first level you load.
Reactivating a Companion no longer causes them to just fly away from you like a jerk.
Quit-to-Start popup menu doesn’t remain open when loading a second savefile
'Create New Save' no longer auto selected on Save Manager menu. That was annoying
Sketchster bullets now interact with stamps
Fixed some more ui-scaling issues

Other
Fun behind the scenes stuff like improved target tracking, menu styles, and more!
Hold C, H, E, A, and T on the map to unlock all current Chesters


To enable the Alpha right click Chester One in your Steam Library, select Properties, and in the Beta branch choose ChesterEngine. You may need to restart your Steam client.
NOTE: I would not recommend this version for a first playthrough just yet as there is still quite a bit of missing content and bugs; but if you’ve already played the game and want to take a glimpse at what’s to come then give it a go!

Feedback is always appreciated and thanks for your time.



I finished everything up in Mania and now my life is an empty sphereless shell.

Chester One Remaster - Alpha v0.0.2!

Time for the second alpha build of the in-progress Remaster of Chester One.
A decent amount of time this week was spent cleaning up/organizing code and redoing the base of the menu/mouse input system; so you just know you’re in for a good time!

New/Restored Features
Camera shake/bounce added for hitting enemies, getting hit, explosions, and more
How stamps react to being shot now depends on your active Chester level+element. Higher levels cause stamps to be easier to catch.
Audio Options menu for adjusting levels of music, effects, and ambient sounds
Restored a lot of missing audio files including ambient background tracks and various movement/attack sounds. Also using some sounds from Chester United.
Mouse support added for map navigation
Redone menu system/layout (mostly functional now but will be getting a visual redesign in a future build)
Step effects added for Chester movement
Separate sprite sheets for elemental Chesters instead of the old simple recolor
Can open Shop/Bestiary from the Map screen. (Although not much point to it yet as they’re still broken…!)

Adjustments
Chegami’s movement is being adjusted to be more like his ChesterUnited-hovering self. Still quite a bit of adjusting to do on this.
Adjusted gravity/falling rates a little bit to make gameplay feel a little more tight. I will probably continue to adjust this in future builds based on feedback

Bug Fixes
Fixed a few issues with things not scaling to different resolutions correctly
Items that land on moving platforms now move with the platform
Sprites attached to moving platforms reset with that platform correctly
Stamps hit by Grass bullets now always successfully launch themselves into the air.
Gear Shields for LCD Chester’s Special no longer have a set lifespan.
Fixed a bug where wallsliding wasn’t reducing player’s descending rate
Cannon attacks realigned
Enemy shockwave bullets no longer travel through the air
Cannon Fireball bullets now successfully explode into smaller fireballs

Other
Hold down C, H, E, A, T on the map screen to unlock all Chesters.
All sorts of behind the scenes stuff. Mmmm, so fun!

Now if you'll excuse me, I have some blue and red spheres looking to send me into a swearing tirade.

Do you have what it takes to save the world you ruined?


You'll have to think fast and move even faster if you hope to save this world!
After an ill-advised prank by Chester, The Bad Guy has been pushed over the edge and driven on an absolute rampage. Buildings have been burned, realities shattered, and most importantly of all: CUPCAKES STOLEN.
It's not going to be easy putting this world back together, but for some unknown reason only Chester can do it! Get ready to fight through over 40 levels finding cupcakes, killing baddies, and collecting stamps to spend on the many unlockables of CHESTER!

Now with over 200 Achievements!

Over 200 Achievements broken up into multiple categories ranging from standard progression and collect-o-thon achievements to adding extreme challenge, completely unnecessary stat tracking of everything, and more!

Achievements are still in an early stage and while all achievements are functional many still need their unique icons. These are being updated with every patch.

Control the style of the world!

8 game changing styles to unlock!
As you progress through Chester you'll unlock new Styles that you can use to change the look of the entire world around you. Each style changes gameplay up in unique ways.

That's a lotta characters!

Over 10 unique characters to unlock!
You won't just be unlocking new Styles as you play, but completely new Chesters to play as as well! With The Bad Guy destroying realities like he did, Chesters from other universes can help Chester out on his quest. Unlockable Chesters range from classy gentlement, to tanks, and spaceships, and weird slug things.

Featuring an amazing 20+ Song soundtrack by ReinaLamour


Over 20 original songs that capture the fun quirkiness of classic video game music with a modern vibe that will keep you grooving through all 40 levels.

Rock Paper Scissors style elemental system!

Every Chester and enemy you encounter is either a FIRE, WATER, or GRASS elemental, forcing you to react quickly to make sure you’re using the right Chester for the job.

Learn about the weird world of Chester!

Every Chester, enemy, style, and item in the game has an unlockable Bestiary page that gives you a small glimpse into the world of Chester.
