RELEASED: Kincaid Build 2021.05 (Public Changelog)
Hi everyone! ^w^
I’m excited to present you the new build of Kincaid!

First we have the new lady on the block of course! This mischievous prankster likes to hide in the level. She’s always looking to get a taste of unsuspecting victims. If she catches Kincaid with her tongue, our wolf girl will need more than a towel to dry off!
The kobold army got bigger and stronger! The brave slingshot warriors are joined by spear-wielders, bomb lobbers and three types of flappers: Bombers, divers and landers!
The new enemies have been added to all existing areas.
We have changed the way energy works. In the past the blaster and the healing ability shared one energy pool. After playing the game like this for a couple months we weren’t happy with how it changed the pace of the game. Because the player was forced to choose between healing and shooting, the player would always prioritize healing. Effectively the blaster was left out of combat and was only used to open doors.
With the change we made, we’re giving the player one blaster shot for each melee attack they manage to land. At the same time the blaster was way reduced in power. We’re hoping that with this change players will use it more deliberately.
As for healing, defeated enemies now drop a new type of energy pellet. If you collect enough they will charge up your heals like you’re used to.
The biggest known issue is the grapple system working poorly with airbound enemies. It has become painfully obvious with the tiger and now we have flying enemies that can grapple. For the next build the whole grappling system is going to get an overhaul!
What’s coming next?
For the next build, I will work on the game over CG while Null fixes all the bugs you guys will probably find. We’ll also be adding a bunch of new sound effects for all the new enemies, interactions and mechanics!
For the mid-term roadmap, my next big project is going to be the main boss of the first area! I’m really looking forward to working on him! ^w^
