Hey everybody! I already spot a bunch of familiar names! I’m also another former Indie Dev Gaf forum dweller (username was the TheHollowNight there), happy to make the migration over since I was already semi-active in the Waypoint discord (aseaton over there)! Thanks @Pehesse for making this!!
For those who don’t know, I’ve been working on Beacon, a top down sci-fi action roguelite, a game with heavy emphasis on exploration, cloning and mutations.
It has a little bit of DNA from all of our favorite roguelikes in there, but it’s probably most similar to Binding of Isaac & Nuclear Throne, with some flourishes of Spelunky.
We’ve been working on the project for almost 4 years part-time, but will be releasing the game in 2018 in some form or another and probably sooner than you would expect (more news on that later!)
I’ve been a little bit quiet myself on updates over on GAF since we’ve been locking down a lot of stuff and now have a release goal and task list set! We’ve also been working hard on a new cinematic gameplay trailer:
