0.8.1 – They wait

      Comments Off on 0.8.1 – They wait

It has been a week since the Level Editor was released!
The workshop now has 1500 items in it. Wow!

Update time!

Today we’re releasing a small update reacting to feedback from all the wonderful people making levels!

It fixes a ton of bugs and introduces some fun new features.

Trigger Zones!

Now you can make enemies not blindly rush at you as soon as you exit the elevator.
Make them wait until you reach them before activating.

Moving Platforms – Very Configurable!

You want to do cool stuff with Moving Platforms? Now you can!
By combining moving platforms with  trigger zones you can make all kinds of wonderful things.
Elevators, traps, doors, sinking pillars, self-assembling levels, hyper-mazes! You tell us.

If the number of settings seem overwhelming it’s because SO IS YOUR POWER!!!!
The default settings just move it back and forth, just like before!

New Challenge: They Wait

To showcase what is possible with the new update we made a neat 5-level challenge, released via workshop!
The death robots are waiting for you, human!
