thisMachine – new opponent types, a GRUB variant,. and FIRE!

More prototype footage from thisMachine, as it develops. There are only a handful of objects in the game so far and already interesting sub-emergent events are fun to play,.

This new opponent type is only pushed a bit by bolt-fire and exhibits classic top vulnerability with danger on the bottom. These move mostly vertically, and tend to form shafts, they also spawn FIRE. FIRE is another new object, it burns the player, and persists for a few seconds.

Getting close to a release demo for opening up to pre-orders on this site.

thisMachine – better video compression,. editing and text.

I am trying movie maker instead of VLC to compress the captures for upload,. seems to work better,. and gives brightness adjust (capture seems to loose a bit of brightness) and also lets me add text overlays. Working on creating better videos,. more to come.

In this short gameplay excerpt you see a nice sneak attack on a nest that is successful.
