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!
