Forum Update

Okay, people are actually using the forum, so I consider the experiment a success! I’ve just added a Player Levels board as well, so if you create a level and feel like sharing, go ahead and upload it somewhere and put a link there. Also feel free to use the board to ask for help with the editor itself.

Oh, and the forum is here.

Beret 1.0.997

A new version of Beret has just been uploaded to address a few more bugs and level design issues. One puzzle in level 13 that wasn’t even supposed to be a puzzle was impossible, so I highly recommend updating.

Here are the details:

Beret 1.0.1

I’ve put out a new version of Beret to address a few bugs that were brought to my attention, including:

  • Certain crushing sound effects were not playing correctly.
  • The first boss would fail to load if the player beat him and then replayed the level or restarted the room immediately.
  • Selecting menu options with the mouse wasn’t working in the Windows and Linux versions.

As always, you can download Beret here.

Playtesting and Bugfixes

I’ve been working recently on getting Beret into a releasable state, which requires a lot of level design modifications and bug fixes. Finding the level design problems and bugs to fix requires a lot of playtesting, so I’ve been having friends play through the whole game. So far I believe everything up through level 8 (of 21) is ready.
