Yes yes, I'm still alive and I'm still making Blackshift.
The next update is shaping up to be an absolute monster. It's got some very large changes, including a secret feature that it wouldn't make sense to release in an unfinished state, hence the lack of updates.
OK, the secret feature isn't that exciting. But I quite like it. It changes the structure of Blackshift quite a bit, and personally I think it's just what the game needed. And it was a lot of work 😅
Unfortunately it doesn't look good in screenshots yet, and I <3 secrecy, so you'll have to wait a little bit before I show you anything.
|Not the secret feature
- Seriously considering deleting my installer and updater. It's buggy, it fails all the time, and I shouldn't be spending my time writing an updater, I should be spending it writing Blackshift. I'm thinking I should just use the app update system built into Itch.io (and later Steam).
- More music
- Couple of new items and graphics, as usual. Not too many this time though.
- Steam! I'll make sure you all get Steam keys if you already bought on Itch.
