PRIME 2.4a (bugfix version available)
« on: July 24, 2014, 07:37:13 AM »
Greetings from outer space!

Pesky Reticulans, Improvoments, More Everything version 2.4 is available now!

Visit http://pesky-reticulans.org/ for downloads.

New stuff:
  • Warp stabilizer implant
  • Pick locks skillsoft
  • Suspensor belt
  • Ungooma
  • Remote control
  • Incongruously prussian helmet
  • Transparent jacket
  • Dispersal grenade
  • Translocator pistol

New enemies, the Orz! Meet naked Orz, Orz scuba diver and Orz Go-Go.

Mutant power: magnetic mayhem.

Among other stuff: 36 new game lore entries, over fifty more tiles. Of course there is a new trap type because new release cannot contain only good things.

A word of warning: the exact day when website was updated someone actually found out! We were nicely surprised by the report. Next additional testing surprised us again but this time not so nicely because 2.4 contains a crash bug. Please avoid using suits of reflec armor. Expect bugfix version next week(end).

Enjoy!

added (02-AUG-2014): Bug fix version is available. Those crash bugs are gone. We have some wording and grammar improvements too.

PRIME shown no sign of life for over half a year. Quite a chunk of time. Next regular release should come as something expected.

Minor news: fix for crash bug is known, we received a patch containing several wording and grammar corrections. Being open source is just beautiful at times.

Has the movement of the camera changed? It seems motion sickness-ish, and I don't remember experiencing that before.

Yes, it is among the new features of NotEye. Hit F3, then o, then c to customize it.

Glad you like them. If you have suggestions of your own feel free to share them. During vacations I foresee ample time for tinkering with code.

Bug fix version is available! Visit http://pesky-reticulans.org/ for builds and/or source.

Is there a Prime forum to discuss the game? I can't find anything really by googling, so could I just post suggestions/ feedback here, or would it be preferable to start up a new thread?

Just as a general theme Psionics seem to have really 'odd' balancing without going into specifics (and spoilers). I wouldn't mind writing something up from what I have tested so far.
