As we said in December — 0.10 was going to be a movement rework and a tweak to the core mechanics. 5 months later we have the update ready. We know this was a long wait, but we think it was necessary. Expect next updates to arrive more often.

This update was mostly for the back-end but we also have some visible changes:

  • Reworked Player movement
    Added Stamina allowing players to Sprint (Shift key) for a 25% speed boost. Players will now accelerate faster. Jump got completely overhauled (Space key). Mini-jump is available while on top of a climbable tile (costs 50 Stamina points).
  • Networking overhaul for player movement, shooting & tiles
  • Reworked Mobs
    Mobs now work with spawners, allowing editors to change how many spawn from one tile (capped at 10)
  • New Mobs:
    • Orb of Lightning (Flying, very high speed, very high health)
    • Zombie (Walking, very low speed, very high health)
    • Spiky Turtle (Walking, low speed, high health)
    • Giant Bat (Flying, medium speed, low health)
    • Quadropus (Flying, medium speed, medium health)
    • Slime 2 (Walking, medium speed, medium health)
  • Mob changes:
    • Bat (Flying, medium speed, very low health)
    • Ghost (Flying, high speed, high health)

  • Players will now respawn with a Pistol

This weekend we showcased Squarelaxy at the Games Gathering Conference in Kyiv, Ukraine. The event exceeded our expectations - it’s unbelievable how much feedback we gathered during the last two days. Over the next few updates, we’ll try to prioritize and work on the most burning issues that people experienced while playing SQLX. 

In ver. 0.10 we plan to go a step back, rework our movement system and tweak the core mechanics. 
Stay tuned! We have a new benchmark to reach in 2020.
