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!
