First World bug fixed

We fixed a bug where, when you'd choose Replay after dying in a world, it would transport you to the first world you chose that play session rather than restart where you died.

And then there were fewer (bugs)...

Hey all,

We think we have most of the bugs squashed at this point. Lag is still gone, kill streaks are fixed (sorry... they were super broken and people were getting artificially high kill streaks through no fault or deceit of their own). The final boss in each world is now unique, and worlds other than Forest, Spooky, and T Day must be unlocked by defeating the final boss in the preceding level (beginning with the Forest). The boss should also no longer leave the screen, causing the player to become stuck.

The passives that upgrade your run speed now work correctly. Damage on all the weapons is now correct, even accounting for passive and permanent stat upgrades. Kills made with the laser cannon and Xeno Bear's stock special once again contribute to kill streaks. We also fixed Starman and Dracula's stock special that were causing no damage.

Backgrounds once again match the world they're supposed to represent, reflecting the altered world sequence. We added a prologue for when you beat the final boss.

At this point, we're pretty close to leaving Early Access. The design of the game is final, and further changes (if any) would likely just be tweaks to the interface.

If anyone's still reading these, thanks for checking us out. It's been an interesting trip.

About This Game

Part bullet hell, part hack 'n' slash, part rogue-lite action packed insanity with over 70 perks to unlock, 6 worlds to destroy and 7 unique characters, set to a completely original soundtrack, HECKPOINT takes place in the not too distant future. A shadowy organization developing new fuels from dark energy has accidentally ripped a hole in our dimension. The incident caused a ripple effect, creating splintered, glitched versions of Earth. Something else took notice, and interdimensional conquerors began to invade our reality. They use the splintered worlds as gateways, and will stop at nothing until our world is under their control.

Fight back the hordes, unlock powerful and devastating weapons. Customize your load-out and head out into the glitch for heart pounding brutal action. Destroy the world, your enemies, everything. Find the obelisk. Can you reach the HECKPOINT?

KEY FEATURES
  • Cut a path through eight procedurally generated worlds, destroying the environment and every enemy in sight. Soar the skies, or engage in up-close combat. Defeat the final boss and activate the obelisk to unlock the next world, or hone your skills in Spooky World or T Day!
  • 12 characters with unique personalities, weapons, and abilities
  • 70+ upgrades to stats, weapons, and abilities, unlockable by collecting and trading strange matter found in-game. Hundreds of possible combinations to build in your load-out!
  • Permanently upgrade stats at the Gene Works
  • Destroy grenades and reflect enemy lasers with your melee attacks. Instant karma!
  • Dive out of the sky with a powerful melee attack to smash ground based enemies
  • A frozen world with a treacherous surface. Apocalyptic worlds that naturally rain meteors
  • Elite versions of enemies with increased health and damage who drop more strange matter
  • Try to fly too long above the battlefield and watch as the game punishes you for cowardice with a hailstorm of meteors
  • A mini-boss and unique final boss who guards the path to the obelisk in each level
  • Customize your load-out with up to 8 slots of possible combinations of the 70+ weapons, specials, or stat enhancements to tailor your approach to battle.
  • Four ways to play: three challenging runs, and one endless stream of annihilation.

    NORMAL - The most accessible way to practice and play. No flying enemies, no deadly glitch field, and only a handful of elites after the miniboss let you get to grips with the game. The catch? Loot isn't quite as valuable.

    ENDLESS - The battle goes on forever here. There is no obelisk to reach, it is only you against the unstoppable horde. How far can you go?

    ONSLAUGHT - The number of elite enemies increases. Harder foes and a midpoint mini-boss join the battle and deep in the world rests the obelisk, a strange artifact that destroys and resets the world.

    WARPATH - The game pushes forward for an even more frantic battle. There is no time to stop and think. Behind you, the glitch field eats up the world. Your skills will be pushed to the limit!
  • An original and expanding soundtrack from Two Iron Fists
