Today we're very happy to announce the release of this new patch we hope will make 8DAYS more fun to play.
Gameplay Difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard and Permadeath
For the diehards who claim the game is so easy that they completed it in a couple of hours, and for those who are annoyed because it is so hard, you can now choose the gameplay difficulty which best fit your skills.
Easy: In this level you can carry more than one medkit at the same time (see below). This extra shot will allow you to keep alive more time ;)
Normal: 8DAYS in its original flavour!
Hard: To die means restart at the beginning of the mission! This level is unlocked when your complete the game for the first time in Normal. Recommended for all of you who have already completed the game in its original format and want a new challenge!
Permadeath: Ho ho ho! This is a gift to all of our diehard players. Its name says it all: die means start again from the beginning of the game! Beat the game in the Hard level to unlock it. Only the brave should play here! (Disclaimer: We should say that no one in our team was able to complete the game in this level ":))
Keep the Medkits for future use
Every time you pickup a medkit it will be stored in your inventory. In the Easy level you can keep up to 2 medkits!
The best? While playing in co-op you can bring your medkit to your pal if he is running into problems!
We have added three new achievements for you:
Kill Bombermann: When you reach the G9 Summit world, kill the suicide bomber before he triggers his bomb to unlock this achievement.
No Civils Killed: Are you a responsible mercenary? If so, then complete the game killing no civils!
Civil Down!: Collateral damages happens in every conflict, sometimes things get wrong and innocents die due your actions.
We've solved all the annoying bugs reported by you, but we will not bore you with technical details ;)
