Camera fixes released into the Wild

Hey guys

The camera fixes we did into the OpenBeta branch a couple of months ago have now been pushed to the standard build.

The original notes on what this did are below.
Cheers!

Linds

----
Camera state transitions when you enter and exit a camera override region are now improved.
There are three major components to the improvements.

  • When transitioning between two “Side Scroll Camera” states (the most common transition type by far), instead of blending the resulting camera state the code now remains in the one state and instead blends the state parameters.
  • For the remaining state transitions, transitions between different states when entering an override are now performed as a cosine blend, instead of a linear blend. (Looks the code used to attempt something overly complex with springs before switching to linear.)
  • The camera code now maintains a running approximation of the camera’s velocity. When a state blend is performed, the old ‘from’ state is extrapolated based on the velocity when the state changed rather than being a fixes position.
Long story short, these changes fix the *CLUNK* the camera would experience when entering and existing the camera override regions.

New build on OpenBeta - camera fixes

Hi all,

We set Skiffy free in amongst the codebase and he's come up with something.
This is what he said:
Ska-Skee Skeeee

That wasn't particularly helpful, so we went and had a look at what he did in the code.
Turns out that...

So yeah - check it out on OpenBeta and let us know what your thoughts are on it. We think it's pretty cool.

It is a good game, but not remarkable.

This game is a linear action-platformer in a 2D plane with 3D graphics. Your character can walk, run, slide, jump, double-jump, wall-jump, climb walls and even hang and move on ceilings. This variety of movements opens up to a lot of exploration in the levels, and such exploration is rewarded with lots of in-game money and hidden collectibles. The in-game money can be used to buy upgrades and costumes.

The levels are huge, with plenty of side-corridors or side-paths where you can find items. Since I wanted to explore every inch of each level, I often got tired before reaching the end. Slightly shorter levels (i.e. splitting each level into two) would be good.

The combat has a fast short-range attack (which you will end up using almost all the time) and a long-range attack, as well as a couple of gimmicks (left-trigger + short attack, or right-trigger on top of an enemy) that are a harder to pull off, and slow down the action as the camera freezes in a bullet-time fashion. This kind of effect gets old very quickly and breaks the flow of action.

The character has a stamina meter (for stuff such as running) and a health meter. The health regenerates when not taking damage.

Due to the amount of buttons used (4 buttons and the 2 triggers used as digital input), it might be a bit cumbersome to play on keyboard. I can't say about it, because I used a controller.

Although each level is huge, the game is a bit short, as this was meant to be the first episode in a multi-episode saga. And the storytelling in this game is not very good, I had the impression the levels did not follow any logical order, I haven't seen connection between most levels. (For comparison, "Sonic 3" storytelling is perfect!)

Overall, this game is okay. Between "Yes!" and "No!" I give this game a "Meh".

I'm conflicted on this game.

Pros
-Style is interesting.
-Voice Acting is pretty solid.
-Some of the action elements are fun.
-Writing is pretty good.

Cons
-Lack of depth.
-Glitchy.
-Combat is hit or miss.
-Suffers from the Star Wars Prequel problem where in some of the aliens just sound like racist stereotypes. Think Jar Jar and the thing that owned Anakin before the Jedi found him.

While the world they've created has an interesting style, most of the visual elements seem borrowed from very old games and anime. It's only about four years old but the graphics seem dated in part because of this and in part because it looks like it was released for much older systems.

The action elements can be fun, at times you feel like a bad ♥♥♥ ninja, sliding, jumping and dispatching enemies with style. However the control and feel of the game goes from being very smooth and fun to either glitchy or clunky. The game has a some what unique combat mechanic with the flying sword; The problem is this mechanic feels completely removed from the more agile ninja cat elements.

The combat also suffers from one main flaw. Many of the enemies you face can and will stun you. In fact the AI for these enemies seems to never increase, they just throw more enemies at you. Which means unless you find a way to dispatch them quickly, which you can and isn't challenging at all side from the fact that you have to plan for it, you will get stun locked and there's no mechanic to break this.

After enjoying the first few hours with the game, I decided to put it down forever because this makes the game just unplayable; As quite often you will respawn right next to a group of enemies and it just becomes a stun party.

That said, there are some truly inspirational moments in this game. The action can be a blast but it doesn't take long before the novelty wears off, and the broken elements begin to wear on the nerves.

I highly recommend this game. My favorite videogame developer Steve made this game as well as my most favorite videogame series, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger. He loves and appreciates his fans and I think that this was a cute and interesting game, as well as a fun 2D platformer. Oh, and I love Kit and Justice as well, they're sexy! Personalities are interesting as well.

+ Chessy story and funny dialoge
+ The style of the graphics are great and refreashing
+ Great platformer
+ Nice costumization & power ups

- The controls sometimes are confusing and tricky ( you need time to get used to )
- Some of the characters are flat and forgettable

Note: This game is not a "FURRY game" so please STFU and play it.

The metacritic doesn't reflect the current quality of the game, the game got an update relatively recent, tightening the controls up a bit and raising the framerate to 60fps from previously 30fps, while it still has its issues, mostly bugs they have yet to deal with, it really improved the flow of the game.

I had a good enough time to recommend it after the update, but don't expect a masterpiece.

Este juego tiene un fallo muy grave y es que no te sientes cómodo controlando a tu personaje. Muchas animaciones se rompen a menudo, por ejemplo, al pulsar hacia abajo, el personaje mirara hacia la dirección donde exista más rampa, sin embargo, el personaje se confunde si el terreno es plano. Esto también pasa cuando intentas hacer un dash como los que tenia Megaman, si existe una rampa pequeña y quieres subirla haciendo dash solo podrás hacerlo haciendo la diagonal o de lo contrario, realizara el dash hacia abajo. Este ultimo problema en particular es muy molesto y afecta mucho al gameplay pero "SE PUEDEN EVITAR ESTOS PROBLEMAS JUGANDO CON UN MANDO". La dificultad puede parecer absurda en ocasiones ya que, como dije, no te sientes cómodo y no consigues realizar las maniobras como quisieras. Todo es acostumbrarse, supongo. Los niveles al parecer son bastante largos y la música de fondo no me disgusta, por desgracia el doblaje de personajes no me convence. El diseño de personajes y las secuencias de animación (el argumento es bastante sencillo) me agradan. No se ven muchos juegos como Blade Kitten, es un plataformero 2.5D con bastante movilidad en el que avanzas explorando, recogiendo y destruyendo cosas. Se agradece que los desarrolladores hayan creado el juego y sigan actualizandolo, es por eso que recomendaremos el juego pero sin embargo no recomiendo pagar más de 3 euros por él. No tiene nada fuera de lo normal que lo resalte por encima del resto de este género. Alejarse de este juego si detestas el Anime (americanizado). No hagan caso del Metascore, es de hace más de 4 años en sus primeras versiones del juego.

After being taken down from Steam due to the previous publisher Atari's rights to the game expiring, Blade Kitten is back and self-published by Krome Studios themselves!

As well as being available for a lower price, the latest update improves the responsiveness of the controls, adds two new costumes, and prepares the game for the long-overdue Episode 2 DLC. Oh, and there's trading cards now!

http://steamcommunity.com/games/BladeKitten/announcements/detail/1855793488205468396

As for the game itself, I'd say it's very easy to recommend at the current sale price of $3. It's not very long, ends abruptly and it's not the best platformer out there, but it's charming and fun to play. And hey, there's a demo if you want to try it out anyway, so don't just take my word for it. Give it a look.

This game went from zero to HERO! Blade kitten on PC used to be pretty bad when it first came to PC, with some kind of stuttery frame rate limiter which made me feel nauseous playing it. The dev though NEVER GAVE UP! Just like Blade kitten the dev not only stayed active on the forums, but kept updating the game for PC to resolve these issues. The voice acting in the game is really awesome with lots of costumes to unlock and powerups to buy. A simple platformer game, probably one of the few ever made where the controls WORK! Crawling up walls, makes exploring the levels pretty fun, like any platformer its not the combat that makes the game its the controls, the feel, and the exploration. From having a little pet to the animations in the game, all of them are awesome! Replay value is high since the controls are simple, even if you forget them like I did there isnt any move that complex like other games, this game you can pick it up play it, quit anytime, then go back and BOOM right back at the checkpoint.

Rating: 10/10 Value: $14.99

Strongly recommended as worth the price, especially when it's on sale. Don't expect this to be equivalent of a $50 game and you'll quite enjoy it. The video gives an excellent example of what gameplay will be like, including cutscenes. It does end suddenly and there is/was some difficulty in making the sequel, however the developer IS working on it after all so there's hope!

The main character is snarky and sarcastic and a catgirl. If you didn't really get that from the trailer or the name of the game itself, then you don't get much sympathy from me.

The levels are HUGE, the animations are smooth, the plot is mildly interesting and a little bit of a page-turner (which is why it sucks that it suddenly cuts off and we've been without the next part of the story for so long.)

If you like side-scrolling platformers and can stand (or even like) the protagonist, this game is worth picking up.

A fun hack-n-slash platformer, most definitely. It has creative and fun gameplay, and a good and extensive backstory. Plus, now that it is once again under Krome Studios' control, it is no longer a dead title, and is once again actively maintained, with a sequel that is now actually on the way.
Sometimes, the characters can be pretty annoying. The story within the game is also rather jumbled. On my first playthrough, I could hardly follow the story.
Still, I do recommend the game, on account of it's fun gameplay, plethora of secrets and goals, and wide and interesting backstory.
