Bloody Trapland 2: Curiosity - Chris

Hello fellow Traplanders!
After more than three years of development, we are happy to finally bring you an official release date.

Bloody Trapland 2: Curiosity is to be released 1st February.

Being in Early Access has been a very interesting time for us, we have gained a lot of insights both on what we did right and what we could have done differently. And looking back at it now, it's safe to say that we probably should have delayed the initial release a bit longer as our early days saw way more issues than we ever expected. And being as small team as we are, fixing the issues at the same time as adding new content took it's sweet time.

But in terms of how the game turned out in the end, it's truly been a game changer. And we are super happy with what the game has become.

From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank all of you that have been a part of this ride, all the feedback you've provided us has had a real impact on the game.
Thank you!

As a token of our appreciation, we will be giving everyone who bought the game in Early Access the first DLC, Candy World for free. We will start working on it soon after release, more on this once we have more details to share.

We will also be upping the price to €16.99 / $19.99 and equivalent in other currencies on release day.

As for the days leading up to release we are still polishing up some last things and we are super excited to soon be able to show you the improvements.

See you in the Traplands!

Patch 0.995:
  • Online mode added for Challenge.
  • Added new UI for worldmap. UI now recognizes and changes according to what input you are using (keyboard/xbox/ps).
  • Major change to the dash and slide ability. Timing requirement for doing a "max dash" has been removed. This to make it feel more consistent. However, to get the max output in terms of length, a max jump will still be required as you will reach longer. But the power of the dash will always be the same.
  • Slide will now be performed in the direction the character is looking even if standing position. Regardless of the move direction input.
  • Dash will now be performed regardless of the move direction input. Exception being when dashing out from a wallslide state.

  • Further improvements were made to the player animations to make it feel smoother.
  • New network code for boulders and various trap prefabs, making them look and feel smoother in online play.
  • Fix for gold coin achievements not triggering if they were previously picked up.
  • Fixed an issue with boulders causing fps drop when hitting the ground.
  • Fixed a network issue with Boomtraps for clients, making them stutter just as they would hit the ground.
  • Fixed Dashing with Right Bumper. Also added Left Trigger and Left Bumper as Dash alternatives.
  • Level 3-6 got some minor visual fixes.
  • Level 3-4 Goal hitbox made bigger.
  • Fix for wall-dashing power sometimes coming out short on controller.
  • Fixes were made to Steam invites, as it sometimes did not work properly.
