UPDATE:
Game is now available on Steam Early Accesss
http://store.steampowered.com/app/439880

---

I finally started on Heroes of Loot 2.. having tried it a few times, one of those attempts turned into Space Grunts.. but now I'm on track to jump back into the dungeons and create a sequel with many improvements.

First week of development was pretty fast thanks to basing the world-generation on the Space Grunts engine, so I now have the beginnings of a playable game:



Early view of the alpha code running:
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/RYneSD0kzTo?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/RYneSD0kzTo?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

my idea is to have you play with 4 characters at once, each with their own skills, but still have to figure out the logistics of this with all the action going on and having to swap characters during fights.. but I'm positive I can find a good solution!

also improving on the game pacing, and the quests while hopefully keeping the arcady-action feel of the original

I love style, music and animations, simple but effective Cheesy
I think that arcade gameplay could be really different: my preference is to avoid shump's bullet hell, if you know what I mean

Looks, so far, once again great! With quite some more enemy types, of course.  Smiley

Those speech bubbles... are you going to add any more complex system behind them?
Because right now, they seem like they would feel a lot more like spammy bot information than like actually informative in the final game...

I really enjoyed the first one and this new gameplay mechanic looks really interesting! Hopefully there is some kind of alpha or beta testing opportunity  Grin

Crap, actually I really like speech bubbles !
I think they can be fun and also add empathy for the characters.

Been working on the quests, another area of the game (as you can see in the video) and various particle effects and gameplay tweaks. And it's only week 3 of development!

2 gamepads, or a gamepad+keyboard.. 1 screen, camera centers in the square around the 2 players.. so can't run away from each other too far Smiley

Your games look amazing, too much to play right now, I will keep an eye on it for the future!

There is a possibility of a collection, like "Orantology", with all games ?

Almost nearing the pre-order and Steam Early Access build!  Just one or two more weeks (probably opening up the pre-order next week with a discount, so keep an eye out for that)

Wrapped up work on the website and marketing material (trailer + screenshots) so it's all ready to go:  www.heroesofloot.com

Here's some cool new screenshots just for those who like pretty pictures :

Is this game going to be released on IOS too?  I play Space Grunts on the train almost everyday and can't seem to get past about the halfway point!
