Unearthed Update: Patch Notes v2.0

An extension of last week’s endeavours, this week I put together some more multiple use items for Unearthed. My personal favourite is the Jar of Fireflies, a refillable item that allows Mitchell to release bugs that zap his enemies. Cool stuff!


 Patch Notes

  • Implemented Jar of Fireflies item. Zap opponents with angry insects!
  • Implemented First Aid Kit item. Multiple use healing!
  • Implemented Pack of Gum item. Cures basic status ailments!
  • Laid frameworks for item help descriptions.
  • Updated listing of every item in the game!

General Notes

Slow and steady progress seems to be the name of the game lately. I will continue the item/ability slog over the summer, and I hope to get to enemy creation in the fall. As more pieces fall into place, progress gets quicker, so I am optimistic about development!

If you’re a PK Hacker, you can check out a tutorial I made on the Starmen.net forums that outlines how to add multi-use items to your game. It is pretty straight forward, and includes some easy copy/paste code.

  • Rather than a tutorial about multipule use items, I still want a tutorial about implementing the Blue Magic system…

  • I should be able put together a tutorial over the next couple of weeks. It was a little more complicated to implement than the multi-use items, so the tutorial will have to be a bit more elaborate.

    Also, my AC is broken and it hurts to have my computer running.
