Update 13 - New Hunter: Red Officially Released

Hey hunters,

Today our new playable hunter, Red, is finally out of Beta state and officially released!

To unlock Red, you must break open 20 Kami Cages on Adventure or Endless modes. I hope you have a lot of fun with her!

I have also fixed a long-time annoyance for gamepad players: sometimes you start to aim down sights, and the camera locks into a certain direction, but them you want to turn to the other side while still aiming… and the camera stays there!

This is fine for mouse+keyboard, but could be improved for gamepads. Let me know if you like it right now!

Update 12 - Polish, Fixes, New Gun

Hey hunters,

Feels good to be back to weekend updates on Zero!

This weekend I have polished Red, our new hunter, a little bit. She is getting some fixes, as well as a slight nerf. This should put her more on par with the other Hunters.

Betu is at GDC since last week (and will still be away for a few days) and I need him to complete some missing art assets for Red. So she’s still considered Beta. Expect her full release in Update #13!

As a bonus, I have put a new gun in the game: the Blast Pistol. It is a heavy ammo pistol that fires exploding shots. It is… a blast ;)

And if you want to make mods (and can forgive me for that pun I just did) maybe you’ll want to check out our new tutorial video. It teaches you how to create a rocket that throws monsters.

Here it is: https://youtu.be/sAAkmbrNKw0

I have also started work on the “Community Pack”, which involves a bit of code refactoring and other boring stuff, but the end goal is to gather all our favorite stuff from what you, the community, have created last year and pack it all together in a massive update to the game!

Happy hunting!

Cheers,

~Mark

*Features*
Beta Hunter (Red) is still Beta!
Explosions now have damage number indicators
There is now a HUD indicator that Rider can throw grenades by spending health
New weapon available on Endless Mode: Blast Pistol!

*Gameplay*
Red now gets 30% less Bounty
Red's Dash Attack's Max Targets decreased from 5 to 1

*Fixes*
Fixed an annoying bug where placing your mouse cursor in-between buttons would make them flip madly between one another;
Fixed a bug where Red’s grenade would not spawn any Kamis if thrown near a wall;
Fixed a bug where Red’s grenade would have the wrong sprite at the start of the animation;

This is a very fun game, at least in my opinion, I don't know how to explain it, but it is fun, especially if you grab a friend to play with, the diversity of characters is pleasant as well. It's not a HUGE selection, but each has their own traits and weaknesses, and each with their own personal weapon at the beginning, which I enjoyed. So yeah, it's pretty good, so I do recommend downloading. Oh, and beware of friendly fire.

Very fun indie game, great pixel graphics and soundtrack, also known as a Hidden Gem. This game will make you have fun for hours, and after that you will realize what you just played and how it was so good.

- Local Co-Op, so it wont be able to play online with your friends.
- Short Story Mode, it should have more content since the story is finished in less than a hour.

I started by discribing the cons, now lets pass to the good parts on this great game.

- Very fun and addicting, keeping you entertained.
- After completing Story Mode, you can play Endless mode, the name says it all, but it will get hard really fast.
- Free to play and takes 10 seconds to download.
- Lots of challenging achievements.
- The soundtrack is very cool and matches with a game like this.
- The pixel graphics are funny and also good.
- Easy to play, easy to master.

Just go ahead and install it, in about 30 seconds you will be in the game and you will see how good it actually is, loved it, wished to see more games like this.

this is an fun and interrestring game, i recomend it to you who havent downloaded it yet. its an arcade-like game where youre hunting those things called relics, you can unlock different characters later in the game. one of the characters in the games is a donkey man. hes like a guide and you see him at the end of every level. i dont know what else i can say so bye.

Practically a hidden gem. Imagine Nuclear Throne with a bit more emphasis on character mechanics.

A pretty nice game for a rainy day, with a whole set of unique playables which can all be unlocked in less than a week's time. Humor value is also pretty above-par, and the storyline is fairly straightforward.

Try this out sometime; it's free!

7.5/10

This needs to be more like a RPG but i can dig it the way it is now and if the added more stuff or enemies (maybe even stages) it would be a cool arcade-like little game!

I am just amazed on how stunning and marvelous this game is, when my cousin said ( yo, there's this super cool free game) i was like he mst be joking, but the surprise is, is that he wasnt and i cannot believe how much fun i am having with this. It does not deserve the "FREE" I would pay $20 for a game as great as this, but games usually with the "FREE" tag on it is either cheaply made or rushed and even sometime both. But this is the polar opposite it manages to capture the dungeon to dungeon feel of The Binding of Isaac (another great game) but combining it with Steven universe, and the baby was this masterpeice. 10/10 Would Reccomend Ign C U Again.
