Skeletal Dance Party - J3X
Hello,

Jesper from Catalope Games here. I am really happy to finally tell you that the Afterparty update to Skeletal Dance Party is out! It took a little while longer then expected but I hope that you will find it worth the wait. Grab it during the Halloween Steam sale at -25%!



Afterparty
The Afterparty storyline takes place after the main story in Skeletal Dance Party. After defeating the Temple of Righteous Light and hosting a huge undead dance party in their former temple the foxgirl protagonist Reva faces her next challenge...


Clerie
A new evil threatens the land - the necromancer Clerie (voiced by Anairis Quiñones). She is a new face in the underground, an interloper bent on taking over Reva’s ‘territory’ with her own brand of necromancy: whereas Reva specializes in raising party-mad skeletons for minions, Clerie raises mindless, flesh-hungry zombie warriors (voiced by P.M. Seymour). Fiery, driven, unwavering, sharp. She holds an iron-clad set of traditional beliefs about how magic should be used, and the destiny of witches and wizards to rule the world; she is personally offended by Reva’s ‘misuse’ of magic and sets out to claim Reva’s territory for herself. She’s determined, daring, deadly, and worst of all, she hates partying.

Afterparty New features



New missions
Afterparty adds 4 new fully voiced missions talking taking place after the true ending to Skeletal Dance Party. Some big spoilers are in it so playing through the entire Skeletal Dance Party first is recommended.



New enemies
Clerie has an army of powerful Zombies and even worse raised some of her own Pumpkings! The Temple of Righteous Light has also send out some of their most powerful warriors to fight the hordes of undead marching in the underground.



Churches
Places blessed by the light. In these areas the forces of light hold their stance against the undead hordes. If you happen to find yourself marching into these areas you will be faced against very powerful enemies, but also the possibility of finding very powerful items.



Exploding barrels, radioactive urns and bagpipes
New regulations means that the catacombs can now be used by the Temple for storing all kinds of dangerous materials. Explosive barrels, urns of magical waste products and possessed bagpipes can now be found. Be careful to not get to close to them. Best usage of them is to throw them at the enemies!


I hope that you enjoy the update. Let us know in the forum if you find any bugs or issues.

Kind regards on behalf of the Skeletal Dance Party team,
Jesper

Hello,

Here is a tiny patch that reworks how the puzzles works. The new telekinesis mechanic introduced in the Midsummer Update made it really hard to solve the puzzles. I changed the looks of them, making it much more easy to select which part to rotate.

It also makes so you can see what statues that are rotated correctly or incorrectly by the light ray above them; red for incorrect and green for correct.



Skeletal Dance Party 1.5.11: Midsummer Hungover update
  • Replaced puzzles with rotating gear towers with skeleton statues.
  • Added rays above puzzle statues showcasing if statue is rotated correctly.

Let me know if you have found any other bugs in the forums!

Kind regards,

Hello,

Jesper from Catalope Games here. I hope that you have wonderful summer and will soon have vacation. So far my summer is going quite good, but has been a bit to much rain and thunder. Here is an update focusing on making the physics more fun and adding some special things for Midsummer!



Telekinesis
Reva has studied really hard and mastered the art of telekinesis! She can now now pick up several items at once. The effect is also much more pretty and contains magical stars, this makes it much more powerful somehow.



Midsummer
It is midsummer and thus Maypole can be found all over the dungeon. Grab your skeletal friends, dance around them and pretend to be tiny frogs! You can also find Swedish Viking Helmets on top of the poles, so push all of them down!



More fixes
  • D-Pad rotates camera in correct horizontal direction.
  • Books props have be picked up and deal damage when thrown.
  • Spotlight can be picked up and deal damage when thrown.
  • Eggs and baskets deal damage when thrown.
  • Improved particle system performances.





If you find any more bugs let me know in the forums or any other social media, have a wonderful party!

Last week Reva and her skeleton gang visited Casual Connect in London. Sadly she did not win the large Indie Prize but she found lots of new friends over there (and turned some into Skeletons using deadly Swedish candy)!

We also released a tiny patch fixing some minor issues with the Scythe weapon and cutscenes ingame.

Skeletal Dance Party 1.5.8:
  • Fixed bug causing minions and enemies stand still after doing one attack with Scythe.
  • Cutscenes should no longer trigger twice, causing scrambled text.

If you find any more bugs let me know in the forums or any of our other social media, have a wonderful party!

Hello,

Jesper here, I run Catalope Games. During the last days I visited Nordic Game and showcased Skeletal Dance Party. It was really fun and I saw lots of familiar faces, and several new ones.



One thing that made me specially happy is that several people said "Oh, so you are the one handing out those really cute stickers" upon meeting me.



Next week I'll be attending Casual Connect in London because Skeletal Dance Party is one of the finalist for the Indie Price! If you are also attending give me a poke.
Skeletal Dance Party - J3X


Hippity hopp! It is Easter and that means a patch with eggs, bunnies and dancing skeletons! Time to go and steal some eggs from the Bunnymancer!

Easter content
New quest: Hoppity Halls
A surreal stretch of territory, these well-hidden catacombs echo with the chittering of long-eared burrowing creatures. It is said that a powerful wizard known as Bunnymancer the Bunnymancer (and Not Very Creative) dwells here, harvesting magical eggs and turning any hapless intruders into puffy-tailed, carrot-loving bunnybones!

Unlocked after Gucha's optional Spook-ey Hole quest.

New Reva item: Hat of the Bunnymancer
A dark ritual has cursed this hat to smell like carrots. Transform a fallen corpse into a bunny skeletal pal. Bunny skeletons have increased life and a charge attack.

Can be found at the end of the Hoppity Halls quest.

Easter Decoration
The catacombs have been filled with easter eggs.



New loot
New Reva item: Sickle
Wheat's worst nemesis.

New item: Party Soundtrack
7 tracks to shake your bones to.

New item: Scythe
Goes great with a black robe and hourglass.

  • Fixed bug causing certain not droppable items to be dropped.
