Yes, I'm able to defeat that boss rather easily. L.3 Sword against the claws and the tail, then against the mask and the face. Pretty easy. I never got the impression that I was supposed to run from the room, at all. And yes, the music did stop in one run, when I defeated that boss.

I was talking to my friend last night, and he was mentioning about how in 1980, he thought the internet would become this amazing place where people from across the world would share ideas. I was telling him about how this project [KOT] has worked, lurching along for years and drawn by different people from across the globe, and he thought it was beautiful. And he was right, it's awesome. :D

Guess I'll have to make the boss a lot tougher then XD
Maybe by adding the hammer as a mandatory way of countering the rush attack.

Just a quick message to let you know that I'm back from vacation. (Which I ended up extending a little). Just finished hanging up a giant whiteboard in my hobbyroom so I'm all ready to continue with development.

I'll like upload the latest hotfixes in a simple demo next weekend. After that I'll stop releasing for about one or two months so that I can fully focus on the new dungeon. (Because keeping the placeholder Mines up conflicts with the new work). Or at least untill I'm comfortable showing of the new rooms in practice.

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.22.68 (23 juli 2020)
* Expanded Goriya movement script

0.22.69 (26 juli 2020)
* Containers, bombs and frozen/stone enemies are now effected by conveyor belts
* Edited bomb masking

0.22.70 (29 juli 2020)
* Made more progress on tiling mining town dungeon
* Bunny Beams now never drop items upon death
* Reorganised container variables
* Hammer can now destroy “light” rocks (and such)
* Added new container object: ore
(which can be thrown without breaking – if no enemies hit)
* Containers and bombs are now destroyed when landing on holes or deep water

0.22.71 (9 augustus 2020)
* Made more progress on tiling mining town dungeon

Spend a lot of time tiling this weekend and working out if I'll be able to release before the NCFC. It's going to be tight, not counting inevitable life stuff and issues even. Maybe I'll have to scale back the dungeon a little. Not sure yet. If anybody wants to help out: A trailer/gameplay video will be first on the chopping block so if someone wants record something that I could share / link to that'd be great.

Weekly progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.22.78 (29 augustus 2020)
* Made lots more progress tiling the mining tile dungeon
* Improves masking starting cave
* Tweaked masking in cave to Medu Palace

0.22.79 (30 augustus 2020)
* Made more progress tiling the mining tile dungeon
* Fixed issue with mine boss that get's you pushed into the boss by accident
* Moved over assets and code from placeholder mine dungeon to the new mine dungeon (= placeholder map now deleted)
* Masked a few mining town rooms
* Made various tweaks to existing mining town rooms

I'd sooner see a quality game than one that was severely constrained.
Nice job as always!

I'm not making drastic cuts just yet, but I get what you're saying. I'll not put the deadline over everything.

Just a quicky update while I'm not overly tired from developing;
It'll be a real challenge to get the next major demo out before the next NCFC, but it could still be possible. Rather then scrap idea's I'll be pushing back features so that there is actually still some time left to playtest before the event (if anybody wants to help with that). And by pushback I mean: use some placeholder enemies, scenes and dialogue that can also be added during the last stretch. My reasoning: a typo or generic soldier won't be as distracting as a game breaking bug.

I'm planning to release the first build for playtesting here on october 5th.

Thanks for caring.

After today I have a full week off from work, about half of which I'll likely spend on development.
While I generally don't announce my vacations online before or during, in this case it should be fine since I'll just be staying at home anyway.

Sorry to dissappoint, but I'm not releasing a test demo just yet. I found that the latest additions needed more polish to work correctly - and I couldn't help but tweak things like that as I noticed them - delaying the tiling and masking work. Before, the planned deadlines looked unlikely but possible. Now it's clearly gone to unrealistic.

Also, I seem to have made a mistake with the dates. I had planned to release a demo on october 12th but appearantly wrote down the 5th in my earlier post. October the 12th will still not be possible to release anything.

I did make a ton of progress over the recent period of time so at least the rush hasn't been for nothing. Now that the NCFC is a no-go I'll likely slow development down again.

Progress report:
Code: [Select]
0.22.91 (28 september 2020)
* Made more other progress tiling the mining town dungeon

0.22.92 (29 september 2020)

* Adjusted room maskings
* Added visuals for lower level cave tileset breakable walls
* Implemented various chests and locked doors
* Expanded town dungeon tileset a little bit
* Worked on depth issue with conveyors going through walls
* Fixed some minor issues

Thanks for the support.

I don't fully understand that last sentence, but if your asking about the date of the next testdemo: I'm not entirely sure myself. The corona measures are up again in the Netherlands so that's also messed with my planned a little bit. What I could do is post the actual tasklist I'm working with, so you can see it shrink alongside me.
