Yes, NBB is still happening!
Honestly, there’s a fractal amount of work to do, currently the whole game is playable from start to finish with all the secrets, but it still feels like there’s still so many details left.
But here’s a little video from a few builds ago, not exactly representative of the final product, but you get an idea of what this game is:
Most of what is missing is audio and “achievements”, but there’s also a fair bit of general polish, bugtesting and adjusting to do, specially for co-op.
I have been considering adding Online multiplayer for a while now, mainly due to feedback, and because COVID has shown we should not be within touching distance of other humans. but the amount of work that would require would be pretty huge, as the original design never considered that. I may still do that, but no promises… Network programming is my very least favorite type of programming :p
In the meantime, I’ve been getting some help from friends for testing, but honestly if anyone out there is interested in giving me a hand, please let me know, and I’ll send the latest build with the feedback forms 😉
Anyhow, here’s some beauty shots of the ISSHIN compulsory enlightenment complex which has received a few coats of love and polish <3
I will keep you posted about maybe release schedules and updates. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
