Rough Edges and a Sharp Edge

There’s not a whole lot to see here, except for a REALLY BIG SWORD that’s looking sharper, prettier, and more astonishingly lethal than ever! But aside from that, there’s just a bunch of bugfixes. And Soulfire’s new dash attack. And a new sound effect. And Soulfire’s new jump attack. And some broken cutscene fixes. Also, as a bonus, Soulfire!

That’s it for today, but expect an update to the aged Vitreblade animations before too long. AND THAT’S NOT ALL! I’ve just started working on the game’s FINAL LEVEL. So that’s going to be unleashed upon you, eventually.

Until next time,
HUZZAH!

Prepped for Inspection

Nothing too major to see here. It’s what’s about to happen that’s exciting! I’m about to show the game to some reviewers, so I had to touch up a couple things beforehand.

There’s really only one change in the game you might find interesting:

It's pronounced "em em slash slash productions", in case you were confused.

Fun fact: Giving yourself a studio name makes you 150% more legitimate and 10% more awesome. Besides sitting here collecting dust in this blog post, the logo adds a nice little touch to the otherwise-boring loading screen.

Anyway, the reason I added this is to look good for the reviewers, so if everything works out, we may have an influx of players and a boost in attention coming in the next few weeks. Fingers crossed!
