Steam Achievements and Game announcement!

Hello!
New update for the game is available and we are also announcing a new game:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/963280/Talk_to_Strangers/

Take a look at our game page and our Steam developer page . :)

The update:



Steam Achievements and Local Achievements System:

Steam achievements are now implemented in the game!
As well as an internal system of achievements (which are the same as those of Steam). There are 51 achievements made based on players' requests and observations of how the game is played.
The internal system also keeps track of the number of times something needs to be done to unlock a achievement, and continues to do so even if the achievement has already been unlocked!
Some achievements will quickly unlock for those who already played the game: Overall, all achievements based on factors already recorded before (such as the number of defeated Drones or unlocked ships) will unlock quickly. Others needed to be played normally.

Steam Leaderboards and Runs time:


The game now have Steam Leaderboards! And not just one type of leaderboard, but two:

- One to score the Reputation points (which is the score of the game), with a different list for each difficulty mode.
- And one to record Run time (the lower, the higher the position in the list), also with a different list for each difficulty mode.

Reputation rankings are updated every time a pilot dies or beats a dragon mothership.
Those based on the time of the Run only update when a pilot beats a mothership.

You can track the current Run time in the options menu, which also pauses the time.
Also improved were the way the Reputation of the last MIA pilots is shown and a new list has been added with the times of each Run (successful or not).



The current implementation of the plugin we use does not allow integration of online Steam Leaderboards in-game, but you can check out these on the game's Community page!




Updated COMBO system: Now "Reputation Combos" remain from Jump to Jump and only resets when exiting OUT of the Jump and/or taking a Hit (with shield accessories or not).
This increases the focus of the game in planning and executing each jump when attempting to beat other players' Points / Reputation. And it makes it more rewarding not be hit.

- Improved scanner making the "Danger" text red.
- Made some minor balance changes to enemies creation.
- Fixed many bugs.
- Fixed some typos (thanks for the reports!).

Thanks and I hope you like the update!

“Bite-sized with bite, I say jump in.”
Stately Play

“The controls are easy to pick up, the strategy is pretty intuitive, and overall, it’s a well crafted little game.”
Bleeding Cool

“It's actually a very good and pretty cleverly designed game, certainly has the same addictive charm that I found with FTL, but fully stands on its own with the fun combat.”

About This Game

NEXT JUMP is a love letter to shmup's [Shoot 'em up or space shooters], read in a slightly different manner: In turn-based battles!


Your mission, our mission, is simple:
The dragons are fleeing with all our Elixir supply. Stop them!
We have an advantage: We are FASTER. Our engines are capable of doing "Juxtaposition Ultra Movement Positioning", or JUMPs, as we call it.
It will not be easy, as the Dragon drones can invade our Jumps, attacking us inside while traveling faster than light. These drones are predictable and always act by following pre-set patterns, but too many drones within the JUMP can be certain death!


  • It's a Tactics SHMUP: Take your time and plan your moves!
  • A excellent Coffee break game: Turn-based with fast gameplay. No long waiting time, these turns go by fast!
  • Not only inspired by classic Shmups and Bullet Hells, it’s also influenced by tactical games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Jeanne d’Arc and Roguelikes like FTL and Crypt of the NecroDancer.
  • Be a pilot of the Bastards Federation: A group formed by Elves, Humans, Dwarves and Orcs who used to live in peace, sharing their love for all Beverages.
  • Your mission: JUMP! Chase the Dragons and stop them from running away with all that is most sacred to the Bastards by jumping from sector to sector, facing hordes of enemies in turn-based battles!
  • Each Sector is a Board! Each given “JUMP” represents a new combat board generated procedurally, simulating combat situations only seen in SHMUPs!
  • Pick from four playable Ships, all inspired by classic weapons: The Ballista, Dagger, Hammer and Staff.
  • Equip and Upgrade your ship with different weapons and accessories that change the combat dynamics!
  • Like the classic games of the past, it has a complete MANUAL, accessible within the game!
