3089 Update: Story time!

Hey all,

3089 now has a “complete” story with multiple endings! Also, now when you pick up quest-related items, you’ll be able to read the data on them to reveal history & other story details. Now, I’m not saying the story is 100% complete, but now there is a story to modify or add to, if needed.

I’ve also included a bunch of other polishing improvements & a compass, which a few of you requested. The biggest tweak you may notice is the health of larger robots like the Spiderbot. A previous bug spawned bigger robots without full health which has been fixed. Oh, you can now switch items while running! 🙂

There is a useful thread (at http://www.desura.com/games/3089/forum/thread/what-people-want) which I have been following which summarizes the many requests for 3089.

I’m going to tackle “Hoverboards” next, which will act like a vehicle / “skiing” hybrid. It will allow you to move quicker, but you won’t be able to jump & movement will feel like you are on ice (e.g. low “hovering” friction).

Biome changes & additions & a new “acid raid” feature is on the short list of stuff to get done too.

I also want to start planning for the beta 2-player co-op “multiplayer” development phase!

OK, back to work!

  1. Just gets better and better. Keept it up Phr00t. Looking forward to final product and hoping to have as much enjoyment with this one as I did with 3079.

  2. Ooh, this sounds like a great update! The weapon-switch-while-running is one that should make that aspect much less frustrating.

    And the hoverboard idea sounds pretty cool. I’ll be interested to see what that is like.

    I’ll give this a try in a bit here and then post more feedback as usual!

  3. Ok, I just realized that you have a forum for this, haha.

    I’ll post my feedback there instead to make it easier on you. Dunno how the heck I hadnt noticed that!

  4. I found a bug, when i entered a building and quit. When i was going to play again i were trapped inside invisible walls inside the building.
