Steredenn 2.4.1: See The Light

Small bug fixes update.

We will wind down Pixelnest Studio starting January 2019. We had an incredibly fantastic time doing Steredenn and other projects, but it's time for us to move on to other adventures.

Pixelnest Studio will still be alive (for at least a few years), and we'll keep supporting Steredenn, but it won't be our main activity anymore. 👋

It's not a sad ending, quite the contrary in fact: we prefer to end on a very positive note. 😊

You can read more in our journal.

  • Add Steam presence.
Bug fixes/technical stuffs
  • Improve Stasisgun/Stasisbot/Rocket Circus pooling.
  • Fix small animation issue with Lightsaber.

Steredenn 2.4.0: The Sixth Extinction

Guess we're all wrong sometime?

We thought the last big patch would be the last, but alas, some bugs crippled the game performances during high-end loops.

We fixed most of the bugs — well, we hope —, and since we were at it, we added some nice little things as well. Better late than never.

However, I should mention that, to correct some of these bugs, we also had to re-balance the loops and some items.

This shall be the last. Thanks again!
Bye, wanderers.

  • Add screenshake setting.
  • The Red Baron starts the game with its own background (except if you let the full intro plays).
Bug fixes/technical stuffs
  • Improve performances in loops.
  • Improve performances of suicide bullets.
  • Rework the Stasisgun , Stasisbot, and Rocket Circus animation (the weird blue gel). This should fix most of the bugs that you encountered while using these weapons. And bonus: it's prettier.
  • Fix a crash when a Lightsaber hit an Heavy Shielder.
  • Fix stacking blockers on Mothership.
  • Fix a bug with Bots' ghosts being generated almost endlessly in specific conditions.
  • Fix Stars-less backgrounds.
  • Fix bugs with the Bulletstorm event.
  • Improve Hypergun. It deals way more damage against normal enemies. It's a bit weaker against bosses.
  • Improve Ultrabeam. Faster, larger, more predictable.
  • Ancient Power doesn't trigger suicide bullets in loops.
  • Tweak Battleship boss' first pattern.
  • Reduce number of blockers in loop 3+.
  • Reset the SUPERCHABAL and Asteroworm counters at the beginning of a loop.
  • Spawn more events in loops.
  • Improve the generation of suicide bullets.
  • Improve the generation of blockers in loops.
  • Rework enemies' bullets speed in loops.
