Beret 1.2.1

Whoa, look at that, I’m not dead. This mini-release has a few more bugfixes and amazingly also includes some new features designed and coded up by members of the community. Here’s the changelog!

Custom Levels, Wikis, IRC, and More!

Hello there! There are a lot of new Beret-related things going on that may be of interest to some of you.

Firstly, three new Beret custom levels have been added since I last posted. You can find them in the usual spot at The new custom levels are:

Kaizo Beret by AkiTG
Chaosity by mizerydearia
Department of Platforming: That One Division by FrostyFish88

Isocitration has also graced the internet with a Let’s Play of Chaosity, which is mostly filled with despair.

Secondly, FrostyFish88 has been kind enough to start a Beret wiki, which could use some more collaborators.

Thirdly, if you’d like to drop by the Beret IRC channel, it’s #beret on freenode. If you’re not familiar with IRC, you can just use that link or the one on the bar to the right.

Also, my next game, Bonnet, is progressing nicely. I’m not going to officially reveal much more than the name just yet, and there’s definitely not a release date, but you can expect more fiendish puzzles, and I’m designing the engine to allow for more interesting platforming mechanics than Beret had. So stay tuned!

3+ New Custom Levels!

Sorry for the late notice! Three new custom levels have been added on the Beret forums, one by Isocitration (remember him? You’d better…) and two by AkiTG.

Isocitration’s Department of Cleanliness, Spin Cycle Division

AkiTG’s Department of Diversity, Outer Shrine Division
AkiTG’s Department of Mystery, Annihilation Division

Also, since I have superpowers I predict that another level may be available very soon… (how does he do that!?)

This will probably be the last release of Beret unless some major bug is discovered, so that I can spend my free time on my next project. Enjoy your bugfixes!

End of the LP

Iso’s Let’s Play of Beret has come to an end. (Err.. a while ago – this post’s a little late.) Quite impressively, he was able to get all 120 medallions without any hints (barring one or two in the very early levels about game mechanics) and provide interesting and amusing commentary throughout the whole game. The LP is by no means a train wreck despite Iso’s early claims – it turns out he’s pretty good at talking and solving puzzles at the same time! (And he’s even quite amusing while despairing!)

Thanks, Iso. This was quite a joy to watch.

The full LP is available on Iso’s channel.

Indie Games for Good

Indie Games for Good is a group of gamers that will be doing a live-streamed marathon of indie games starting November 4th and continuing as long as people keep donating to Child’s Play. You can view a list of the games that are included in their lineup so far on their donation page. (The mildly astute may notice that Beret is included in that list!) So, if you’re feeling generous, please consider making a donation to make a sick kid somewhere in the world happy and help Indie Games for Good provide more exposure for some of these indie games in their list.

And of course, watch the stream if you have the time! It sounds like fun!

New Texture Pack?

I’m sure you’ve all noticed that Beret’s graphics are a little lacking… so it occurred to me recently, why not ask if anyone more artistically inclined than myself would be interested in putting together a texture pack for Beret that would ideally be made official? And indeed, that’s exactly what I’m doing with this post!

So, if you are (or if someone you know is) a good artist and would be interested in working on a texture pack for Beret and get your name in the credits and have my eternal gratitude, please let me know! You can email me at, and if you want to include a sample of your work, all the better.

Deception LLC

It’s been a while! Enough of a while that there is now a pack of three custom levels from a fellow called Leylite available for download on the Beret forums. The pack, entitled ‘Deception LLC’, uses a subset of the elements of the game in very creative ways and has some pretty devious puzzles – if you’ve beaten the main game, there’s no excuse not to play through it!

You can get Deception LLC here.
