Difficulty Balance & Ravenous Monster Update

Reki here as always. I've done some playtesting recently and decided that the game needed a few crucial balance tweaks. This patch should make for a less tedious experience overall, as well as adding some interesting encounters in the form of ravenous monsters.

PATCH NOTES
- Added ravenous monsters. They are the rarest of the modifiers, gain a random buff every 30 seconds, have double health, and drop life when hit.

- Less hostile hunters will show up.

- Hunters will properly despawn now after being offscreen long enough.

- Life cells will always appear at any gravestone, and their numbers will not deplete.

- Life cells are no longer solid.

- You can no longer be damaged by a friend when playing online.

- Grong-Sages are now peaceful to the player since they were too strong for an early game monster. They are also diurnal now.

- Magnet status effect now pulses larger and smaller, and also doesn't affect its own host.

- Creatures shouldn't spawn on top of each other now.

Small patch today, but I hope that makes a good difference!

I've also updated the store page for Ufflegrim with a new gameplay trailer and new screenshots. It's turning out really well, check it out: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1072800/Ufflegrim/

And finally, join the Corpse King Discord server, I'll be distributing any alpha keys for Ufflegrim there in the future: discord.gg/e73QHcX

Wall Achievements Fix

Reki here as always. Just a quick notice that there was an issue with achievements for the Wall area that has been fixed.

If you've already done those achievements, you can simply toggle your corresponding Calamity Cards on and off and you'll be granted them.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Cheers.

About This Game

Blessed Surface is an open-world 2d platformer, mixing the depth of its detailed and lively gameworld with fast-paced, chaotic gameplay. Relaxed exploration, a skill-rewarding, diverse combat system, and high potential character-building make up the core of the game.



▬ You can equip two weapons, which have two unique attacks each. A wide range of builds with unique movesets is available. You'll need to find weapons that combo well together, and can adapt to any situation.

▬ Charge up your finishing move and destroy enemies with style!

Timed blocking and other mechanics reward speed and accuracy.

▬ Collect ammo that drops from defeated creatures, and use your gunner mode for some extra damage on more difficult enemies.





▬ Collect armor, guns, melee weapons, and passive or triggered perks. Find what works well together and make your own playstyle!

▬ Nearly every creature you meet has a chance to drop its heart. Hearts give you one passive and one triggered perk, and you can have up to three hearts active!

▬ Hatch a creature as your pet! With a huge amount of potential pets, find the weirdest one to be your companion!

▬ Every armor set has a unique finishing move, as well as a luck stat that gives you a higher chance to meet special encounters.

Level up your weapons by hitting stuff with them!





Events, both random and based on the real-time clock, ensure that you'll always see something different each play session, from different creatures emerging at certain hours, to daily bosses, to flowers changing color throughout the year.

▬ There's also an in-game ecosystem. Every monster you kill makes an impact on the population. Monsters breed and lay eggs. They multiply with the passing of every real-time day. They have favorite foods, and fight each other. It's a living world.

▬ Lore and writing fleshes out a fairy tale-esque world, telling you fantastical stories about its unusual inhabitants through various sources, including item descriptions and an in-depth NPC dialogue system.



And perhaps, if you are determined, you might just find the Blessed Surface...

Features

  • A seamless, dungeon-like open world with over 10 uniquely themed areas, including portals, secret passages, and more

  • Large population of well over 50 unique enemies and bosses

  • Skill-based combat system with many different weapons, armor, guns, and over 100 passive/triggered perks

  • Functioning ecosystem allowing for creature population control, invasive species, and other innovative mechanics

  • Random and timed events

  • Keyword-based dialogue system, hiding many secrets if you know what to ask, allowing players to take conversation at their own pace

  • Deep lore and stories to discover

  • Basic two-player online multiplayer; players are synchronized, enemies from another player's world are not (easily join via Steam, no port forwarding or setup required)

Why open-world, rather than a Metroidvania?

There are a few subtle differences, in the way content is structured. Metroidvanias are usually based on going from place to place to find new things and unlock new areas, whereas this game contains more dynamic systems to give you a unique and fresh experience no matter where in the map you are!





For making it to the end, you have been blessed by the Biter of good fortune.
