Schlagwort-Archiv: deep 8 demo 2

Devlog 1/2021

Jesus, it’s been another 3 months and my progress bar continues to fill …

Together with the Dev Stream participants, I created a vast snow area, with some funky enemies (also from ideas, that the stream gave me):








Without a doubt the tastiest enemy in the game!

And then I had a ton of fun making some trippy scenes, that happen on a water cargo ship. This gif represents the whole flair of those scenes:joint








And of course, I created some more solid tunes, that’ll set the right mood.
This is a track, that plays in some sort of laboratory:

And this one is a track as classical as it could be in an RPG:

Okay, it’s a bit inspired by Jimmy Hendrix Solos. ;)

And right now I’m starting to develop the last section of the game. Yes, that’s right. So wish me luck and I’ll see you in the Dev Stream or on the next update.

Keep it deep, Jan

Version Update!




Dear website visitors,

apparently some of you at least downloaded my demo. Now hopefully you also play it and most importantly let me have a look on your reactions(in a written way ^^).
The german community has already criticized the demo at length and I’ve implemented some stuff to react to that and now also updated the current version on this site.
So this version includes the following improvments:

1. the damage trigger was pretty much rebuilt. that means first that it’s based on a new and more balanced formula which is supposed to prevent that it changes from pretty damn slow to super fast from one to another enemy. the second change is, that it moves three ways now: left – right – left. In the other version it was only going left and if you weren’t quick enough you missed. This way you have some time to estimate the speed.
The monsters in the droon station are a bit slower now too.

2. The intro was pretty long. So I took the scissors and cut out some unneccessary parts which makes it at least about a minute shorter.

3. Melings cut scene artwork was overworked. Have a look:

4. the tutorials for the scale bombs, the bomb jump and the damage trigger are now also available in the tutorial section after you’ve seen it the first time.

5. the competencies needed to complete an ability are a little less senseless cause they also improve the status.

That’s it for now. Hope you have a peaceful and deep time.



Soundtrack, Titletrack

As you might have noticed, I composed the DEEP 8 OST for the second demo myself. For those of you who prefer listening and do not like playing too much, I just uploaded the soundtrack on youtube, including a more or less highly erotic musicvideo for the titletrack “cunts”.

The complete soundtrack is maybe more designed to be played in the background while doing something else.

I by the way got some good feedback on the demo. A few bugs were found too. But it’s actually almost bugfree. If you consider playing it and wanne be completely safe, then just have patience for a few more days till I throw out the next version.

Stay deep
