YPDATE 1.2.0 - JYKEBOX + 73!

It's finally here! JYKEBOX! With 17 new music track!

And it's as simple as if it'd be designed by a fruit. A single click randomizes the track. A long press opens up list of tracks. What more could you want? (Don't answer that.)

Also one requested feature has been to be able to repick your cyberware, weapons, etc without deliberately dying or going back to the lab. It's now possible by long pressing the Restart button in the pause menu.

So the 1.2.0 update focuses on adding JYKEBOX and 17 new music tracks. Here's the change list:

-Added JYKEBOX and SEVENTEEN new music tracks!
-Long pressing Music button in pause menu opens track selection where you can disable and enable single tracks. Long pressing (mouse, touch) or pressing space (keyboard) / Y button (gamepad) on a track starts playing it.
-Long pressing Restart in game pause menu will let you choose new cyberware and weapons.
-Optimized rendering.
-Fixed shader bugs on Intel HD GPUs.
-Linux stability fixes.
-Under the hood level editor tweaks (still not sure if/when it'll be publicly available, but you can try it out like you can in Neon Chrome).

So that's that. Tons of new music and some fixes & usability tweaks.

The next 1.3.0 update will add at least one new mission in Act 3 or 4.

HOWEVER, next I'm going to focus on the new Crimsonland update (with 10 new levels), so don't expect JYDGE 1.3.0 to arrive next week exactly. But maybe before 2018. Maybe?

New update 1.1.0 is now live! This one adds new features, fixes a few old issues, and tweaks some stuff that wasn't exactly broken (like Friend of Mine).

Here's the change list:

-You can select your loadout by pressing SPACE or X on gamepad in metagame or mission over screen. You can also quick select slots by pressing 1,2,3 on keyboard.
-Edenbyrg map can now be zoomed.
-Added tab icons to meta game screen.
-Friend of Mine now converts mines to your friends.
-Ultra-widescreen UI fix.
-Defused bombs now stop glowing orange.
-Paradise Lane alarms now show an alert text when triggered.
-Fixed Neighborhood Watch bomb (harmlessly) exploding after defusing.
-Level fixes.

The update is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

What's up next in 1.2.0? More missions? Level editor? Modding support?

About This Game

Build your JYDGE. Enter Edenbyrg. Get out alive.

Build your own cybernetic JYDGE in this lawful-but-awful roguehate top-down shooter where you get to eradicate crime in the never-sleeping megacity of Edenbyrg. Create your own play-style by augmenting your JYDGE, modifying your Gavel rifle, and choosing fearless companions to suit the tasks at hand. Go solo or team up with Co-JYDGE in shared screen local co-op.

Will you be stealthy and lurk in shadows? Or will you assault the evildoers head on? Maybe you'll brutally rocket them to bits from a distance? Or perhaps bring your own squad of reckless companions to solve the scenarios?

BILLIONS of different game altering combinations enable you to find tools to fit your playstyle.

Use STEALTH augmentations to sneak silently in shadows. Make yourself GIANT and hurl perps around. Make yourself tiny and fit through smaller cracks. Or combine augmentations: make yourself a tiny giant. Up to you.

Deal sweet ruthless Jystice with your ultra-versatile and moddable weapon of the law.

§ Fire lead, lasers, and electricity modified with dozens of game changing effects.

§ Persuade the perps to join your side with "Persuade or Die" mod.

§ Fire rockets in the general direction of the enemy and hear that kneecap split from a distance.

§ Use Dynamite Gavel mod to powerslam through walls and explode-gib the foes with a swift blow to the brain stem. Observe the wrongdoer's eye pop out of its socket.

§ Smell the burning criminal flesh using the Flaming Plasma mod or just gently knock them unconscious with the Sandman mod.

Your Gavel, your Law.

The filthy stench of crime has taken over Edenbyrg. But do not fall into despair, the lawful but awful JYDGEs are designed to swiftly correct all lawless behavior.

Bank robbers have fortified themselves into the MegaBank. There are four ways into the bank, but only one way out of the vault. How will you proceed?

Several Cobra Gang members have taken the Flanders family hostage. They need to be rescued. Preferably alive. Your move.

The darkest rain-beaten alleys of Edenbyrg also tell a rumor that someone is building a death machine. Something big and especially designed for taking out JYDGEs. Arm yourself!

How to complete the scenario without firing a single shot? Under 15 seconds? Without being seen? With EVERYONE dead? With EVERYONE alive?

Your heroism and extraordinary feats will be rewarded with shiny Medals. Medals unlock delicious new cyberware, weapon mods, fire modes, special weapons, and more.

What is the best combination of cyberware and weapon mods to achieve the medals in different scenarios?

Who be the JYDGE?
