Appreciate it! Game is going at a great pace. Should have some fun new things in store, but for now, newly added fire effect + some gameplay.

New shop and item system with loot tables in place, making it really easy to add items and give them value and weight in shops. Each table will have it's own selection of items.




Added the first relic (items that grant passive effects) to the game, Burning Rage, grants double damage, but if you don't engage in enemies fast enough you'll catch fire and gain movespeed.

Glad you got the loot table thing figured out! And I really like the risk/reward idea for the first relic - it's doubly nice that you included a boost to movespeed when you're on fire, so you can get to the next enemy faster. Great idea!

Thanks a lot! I'm hoping to make a lot of interesting items, we'll see how it goes!

Appreciate it guys.

Thank you Smiley

Been a while since I've posted! Been working on a boss fight that I can hopefully show soon. Added some tile variation in the backgrounds, as well as a palette shader for colour swaps and level variance later on in the tower (there will be other graphical changes as well, but the palette will change as you progress through the levels).



This gif showcases some of that new stuff I mentioned, as well as some of the mobility available to you in Fiendtower! OH! And the new UI. Smiley




Anddd a new enemy as well!

So today less focus on gifs and an update on the overall game!

I recently reworked the level selector to something I can work with better. I've "blocked out" the entire game so far, 5 zones, 8 levels each + a shop and a boss room. As you progress I palette swap the environment, but as I go on each zone will have a variation in theme, enemies, traps, props, and rewards. Right now it reuses levels and bosses but now I'm able to test things in an actual long form play sessions.

My short term goal is to finish and polish zone 1 as a proof of concept of the game / a zone. Mid term goal would be to create just enough content that  I don't have to reuse any rooms in one run. That would be 4x8 rooms assuming I keep the current system, and 4 additional bosses.

From that point on the game could technically be deemed "complete" and from that point it's all about adding additional rooms, room types, enemies, and random variation to all of it.

All in all for a project thats just over 3 months old I'm feeling very happy and confident!

Here I leave you with a gif of a attack/flash reset glitch I've discovered. Tempting to leave it in as hidden "tech" but that remains to be seen if it's too broken. Possible upgrade options though!

If it's not too easy to pull off, stuff like this can feel very rewarding to a good player who've mastered the controls. Game looks really fun! Smiley

Yeah the goal is for everything to feel smooth and responsive! Lot's of quality of life/hacky things holding the core gameplay together and making it feel good. :D



Worked on a death state, the old one was just a placeholder. Still somethings to work on but I'm happy overall with it.

And almost forgot... started working on another boss. Just a heads up, it is very obviously inspired by the eye boss in Rogue Legacy in terms of visual design (but then again, 2 circle sprites, is there another way to do an eye? :p) The fight is already entirely different (and still incomplete) but I think it's looking good!




And one last fun gif to demonstrate some more of the movement. Added a few QOL things for the wall cling.

Been working on less exciting stuff, such as menus and saving / loading. Really happy now that that's in! The system for menus I made should make it really easy for me to add stuff to it. I'm actually surprisingly happy with it! Also testing out a CRT shader. Enjoy all of the above + some platforming :D

Did some graphical updates to the shop, quite happy with it so far! Been working on random misc stuff, bug fixes and polish, for a hopefully soon demo, we'll see!

Created a proper death effect for the enemies, and have been cleaning up random half implemented things/bugs.

I think to be demo ready I need to:
1. Create the intro levels.
2. Add a boss intro / polish a few things around the boss setup
3. Fix and add a few items.
4. Do another sound pass, giving proper sound effects to everything.
5. Whatever bits of polish/bug fixing.

All in all not looking to bad!

Thank you! Smiley

So I've been doing some much needed overhauling of the projectile system in my game, will make it easier to mod and adjust projectiles and create some fun combos. Still adding features to it and making it just right but just some simple things I can do with it:

Fire bones


Bomb arrows


Anddd the player using enemy bombs.



Thing such as flaming or bomb projectiles will be used for random modifiers to increase difficulty in a run.

Hoping to be able to do a lot of cool things with this system and it will make it easier for me to add new enemies and player items.

Ugh! Reworking systems is always a chore. My projectile system is nearly done, and I'll be very thankful. It's burned me out a little bit. Right now making it connect to my item system. Now the player is able to get modified items:
