Fixes
  • Updated engine version, fixed navigation issue with enemies.

Hello everyone!

Tonight we are opening the experimental branch for Blood Trail. Marking this first experimental update is the beta release of the new survival mode map, “Believer”. This map is a larger compound of the Neptune’s Vow cult where they once lived and practiced their ways in relative obscurity. Mostly abandoned after they grew and migrated north to the city, some stragglers remain.

In addition to the new map, we’ve started updating the appearance of the basic enemies. Some are shirtless, and some wear variations of body paint. Soon we will be adding more outfits, accessories, more body paint, and of course eventually new enemy types with different properties, strengths, weapons, and abilities. Enemies are now also prone to falling damage.

We know it’s been some time since the last update. We’ve been focusing on both this new map and our new game mode, “Raid”. (We will have more info on Raid coming soon!) But for now, we are learning to manage our update deliveries and we will now shift our focus to making smaller but more frequent updates whenever possible.
