Super Cloudbuilt Wardrobe Update: New Skins and bug fixes!

By | Double Eleven, Super Cloudbuilt | No Comments

Howdy Rocket Soldiers!

We’ve got a little treat for you in the form of a new Super Cloudbuilt update. We’ve created some fancy new skins for you to unlock, including a set which transform Demi’s jetpack into a rocket-limbed teddy bear (and seriously, isn’t that what you’ve always wanted?).

As well as these funky unlockables, we’ve added a bunch of tweaks and fixes, some of which came from our awesome community on the Steam Public Test Branch. You can read the console patch notes below and find the Steam patch notes here.


THE WARDROBE UPDATE IS HERE!

The latest update for Super Cloudbuilt has just gone live and it’s brought with it a whole bunch of extra outfits for Demi as well as some big changes to the energy system!

NEW WARDROBE OPTIONS

There are a total of 16 new outfits in the game which you can unlock by doing things like completing certain levels, taking on challenges, collecting items, improving your Cloud Rank or by completing Rush Packs.

The outfits are all brand new and feature items like boarder jackets, goggles, eye patches, razor sharp fringes and even… rocket powered teddy bears!?

RECHARGING THE ENERGY SYSTEM

The changes to the energy system came about because we love watching our community tearing through levels but hate it when you have to come to a complete stop while you wait for your energy to recharge.

Now once your energy has started recharging, it will continue to recharge as long as you don’t try to spend any energy, this means that you can jump from platform to platform or wallrun without pausing the energy regeneration.

We think this change makes the whole game feel more fluid and opens up new exciting techniques, we’re excited to see how it could impacts the leaderboards!

LOTS OF TWEAKS & BUG FIXES

As well as the above, the following tweaks and bug fixes have been uploaded in the latest build:

  • More robust save checks to protect against information loss in rare cases.
  • Fixed numerous issues with the collectable keys and item lockers.
  • Fixed a bug that capped the use of Extra Life / Checkpoint Packs to 3 per level.

In the Payday DLC pack, players get numerous new features, including:

Super Cloudbuilt is now out on PS4 and Steam for PC! Check out the launch trailer below.

Super Cloudbuilt puts you in the role of Demi, a young soldier who wakes up in the empty shell of a ruined building, in the center of a strange new world, disconnected from her old life and physical body.

Exploring her world and overcoming new challenges, Demi pieces together a story of violent combat and the disastrous accident which brought her to this strange place.

Songbringer coming to PS4, Xbox One and Steam this Summer!

By | Double Eleven, Songbringer | 2 Comments

We’re delighted to officially announce our partnership with one-man development studio, Wizard Fu. Together, we’re bringing Songbringer, a procedurally generated action RPG set in a 13,000 B.C. Milky Way, to PlayStation® 4, Xbox One and Steam for PC, Mac and Linux this summer.

During times of peace the people party. Roq is a carefree dude just cruising the galaxy in search of the ultimate party aboard the space-faring art party ship, Songbringer. Roq wakes up, shirtless and confused on a strange planet. When Roq accidentally awakens an ancient evil army, the galaxy as he knows it is thrown into war. Now it’s up to Roq and his trusty robot sidekick, Jib, to save the galaxy from total annihilation.

Songbringer is a gorgeous procedurally-generated world populated with ten dungeons in 3/4­ perspective. Enter a six-­letter world seed code when starting a new adventure, granting you the possibility to explore 308 million unique environment combinations – no adventure is ever the same, unless you share your code with friends.

A rich, immersive story line and a fantastical sci-fi universe littered with secrets, Songbringer introduces the unique concept of hidden realms. As Roq, learn to utilize the powers of the rare cacti you will find in the world to see things that aren’t there (or are they?): doors, items and other loot that can help you on your journey.

With action-packed combat and several unique weapons to choose from, including the epic and humming nanosword, the boomerang-like top hat, the ghost sword projectile, and plenty of bombs, Songbringer allows players to go it alone in the galaxy or with a friend – local co-op allows for a second player to join you as Jib, your robot companion with a strange propensity for moustaches. Overcome crowded mobs, virus androids, gigantic bosses and solve a series of puzzles to get you back where you belong; at peace and partying the night away on the Songbringer as you sail the solar winds of the galaxy with your friends.

Check out some beta gameplay footage in preparation!

 

Songbringer will be on display at PAX East in Boston in March.  For more information, check out songbringer.com and be sure to follow @wizard_fu on Twitter.

Goat Simulator Payday out today for Xbox One and 360!

By | Goat Simulator | No Comments

Guess what?! No don’t guess. We’ll just tell you. Goat Simulator: Payday DLC is now out for Xbox One and Xbox 360 for $4.99(USD)/£3.99(GBP).

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to crack a safe with a pair of hooves? How about what an American flag mask would look like on a bright pink flamingo? Well these questions (amongst many others you’ll probably never ask yourself) are answered in Goat Simulator: Payday. The third console DLC title, Payday, allows Goat Simulator fans to embody one of four new playable characters: a hard-hitting ibex goat, a water spitting camel, a high-flying flamingo, and a wheelchair-bound dolphin. The Payday DLC pack is a crossover title, with styling and inspiration from Overkill Games’ successful heist series of the same name. In Payday, players are introduced to new gameplay: access Pranknet to track and complete in-game missions, switch between all four members of your crew with the push of a single button, buy and wear masks, fly a soccer-playing rocket car and much more. Fans can expect more of the same Goat Simulator brand humour with a new map, rich with pop-culture references and hidden comedic gems. Mainly, there’s a load of new stuff to wreck and/or lick.

In the Payday DLC pack, players get numerous new features, including:

  • A shiny new Goat Simulator Map
  • 4 new characters, which can be swapped between in-game
  • Wearable masks, purchasable with in-game currency (no real world transactions)
  • ‘Prank’ system with completable quests and achievements (only on Payday map)
  • Brand new mini-games including blackjack and a one-armed bandit
  • Cats

For gamers who have not yet jumped on the Goat Simulator wagon, the base game will be available in a bundle for digital download for Xbox One.

The console editions include a fully-fledged story mode that explores the gruesome and often convoluted matters of legal gray areas in the prison system, and an incredibly in-depth sandbox mode, packed with new in-game community features. These new features from developer and publisher Double Eleven allow players to build, maintain and share their maximum security prisons with the touch of a button on either console.

Cope with blazing infernos, prison wide riots, demolition and construction, and if you make it through unscathed the Mayor will be ready to give you the reigns of a brand new prison development where you can build the prison of your dreams.
