Meganoid (2017)

Toucharcade posted about it, so it's official now!
Besides working on Ashworld, I also started work on a Meganoid reboot.

It's early, REALLY EARLY, in the development process, so I'm still working out the details but here's what's currently up and running:

The few things I can say for certain right now:
- it will be a platformer
- it will be difficult/challenging at times
- it comes with unlimited procedurally generated levels on each gameplay (with a human touch to the level layouts)
- it will come with X amount of worlds and an end-goal to reach in each game session
- it will have some rogue-like concepts (items/inventory for things like double-jump boots, bombs, etc)
- it will be released in 2017 (aiming first-half of 2017)

For technical details/developer-bla-bla you can always read the blog I posted about it, but for those who just want to play it, it's coming!

Wow, a new Meganoid in 2017!?😳

Sounds really cool!

That's what more devs should do, reboot your own game after a couple of years & make it fresh again!😁

a replicator-room, giving you items to help you survive the environment:

and the level generator is possibly evil

After being interested in Ashworld I have grabbed a couple of your games and I must say: I love your style.
