This month we are highlighting the nefarious Boogin King. Hide yo' cake!
We also wanted to deliver an update on physical rewards: Hoodies are printed and are lookin' dope (pictured below.) We should also be receiving our figures any day now, and we should be sending them out on schedule with the shirts and hoodies as well, on time being at the end of this month (August.)
In addition to some knowledge droppin' on the state of our backer rewards, we also wanted to go into a bit of detail on what's new with the game, complete with color photographs!
UI and Visual Updates to Gameplay
Pressure plates and many other assets have additional detail now. You may also notice a key and chest. Certain levels will contain these items, and as I'm sure you can guess, if Niko and his friends can manage to find the key and make their way to the chest, they will be rewarded with all manner of shiny currency, perhaps even a costume or two?
New Level Map Look
We gussied up the level select map quite a bit. At the bottom screen you'll see a bar containing information and options for your currently selected level. Before starting a level, you are able to see your star challenge criteria -- challenges that, when met, will provide you with bonus stars. You will also see Monster select flyout menus, as well as costume customization options for Niko! These allow you to select one monster from each affinity (indicated by the symbol above each monster group) and one costume for Niko, providing buttloads of opportunities for puzzle-solving craziness.
Oops! Almost forgot -- see that skull icon in the top left of the above screen? That's the Biblio Monstrum, an ancient tome with expansive knowledge on the monsters that inhabit Gogapoe, acting as a bestiary for Niko, and undoubtedly serving as a companion just as valuable as his monster allies!
Thanks again everyone! More soon!
