More Colors (Stick Veterans 0.9.5 released)

Version 0.9.5 of Stick Veterans has just been released, marking the 5th update of this game.



Once again. despite all the blood, sweat and tears, online multiplayer is not ready yet. The reason for this is that I wanted to progress some game features that I believe are necessary to bring the game to a mature state.

But let's not dwell on what hasn't been done; lots of other things have been done in this version, including:
  • Smarter AI: bots will now use jetpacks, crouch to aim better, and will generally do less stupid stuff than before.
  • Colorful maps: bringing a huge change, maps can now have two types of coloring: per-block colors (like the new map Outposts shown in the screenshot), and gradient colors (which covers the entire map in a gradient spectrum).
A lot more additions / fixes / improvements have been done too, so head to the game site (alternative) to learn more and play the game.


Not much to mention beyond that; development is tough and gives me headaches, but the satisfaction of seeing the game grow and reading your positive comments makes up for it. Thank you for that.

Until next update,
Kostas

Aircraft maintenance simulator & VR game projects

Since the start of this academic year I've been enrolled in a Computer Science postgraduate program. I have found a couple of my semester projects to be noteworthy, so I thought I should post about them.

Barbara vs Zombies

A few years back I made a game, Barbara vs Zombies, for my then-girlfriend Barbara. She used to like an old light-gun game, House of the Dead , so I depicted her dodging and shooting zombies in this one. Included a backstory with silly romanticism, cats, and inside jokes. It's been nearly a year since we broke up, and this game has been sitting forgotten in my hard disk. I eventually decided it shouldn't go to waste. It is, after all, a game meant to remind us of happy times. Download and play the game on Gamejolt  or itch.io . I had made an Android version too, maybe I'll get around to publishing it someday. Hang in there, 2020 was a tough year, but you've made it this far already, so congrats. 💖 -Kostas

Stick Veterans 2.0: a long-overdue update

It's been so long since the last game update that I feel nervous writing this. After a long time of development and rewriting, a new update is finally available. Stick Veterans 2.0 is now published on Poki, a popular online games website.
