Do yellow boxes have aliens more often than other boxes?

not sure how clear it is in game, but you can deliver multiple of the same coloured package at once if you get them all into the delivery area. also, destroyed packages take away $1. if you already knew both of those I’m not sure what I’m doing differently.

no, it should be the same for all of them. there’s a bit of a tell too.

here’s a list of updates I’m planning on doing.

  • doubling the amount of lines for leaderboard rankings
  • adding achievements
  • saving between days
  • customizable apartment for between days
  • improving mixing of the audio
  • improving visuals and particle effects

I’d like to know which of these should take priority or if you have any other suggestions.

I clicked “C” and my character froze in place
clicking “X” also freezes my character.

that’s strange, I don’t remember binding c or x to anything during development. taking a look at it now.

update: I think this is a problem in marigold as well, some old extra code for different states in the original version of this movement code. it’s fixed now.

I’ve been working on making a drivable car to go to and from work in, as well as a house for the player. I’m thinking this should make the game feel more connected and a bit less repetitive by breaking up the gameplay a bit.

I also have quite a few simulator and roguelike related ideas I’d like to try out.

for simulator stuff -
-sleeping in the apartment
-time passing outside of regular gameplay
-decorating the apartment
-debuffs and buffs based on how much sleep you get
-interactable things in the apartment.

for roguelike stuff-
-random upgrades to choose from
-persistent health throughout the run
-more diverse enemies
-different guns to choose from
-random upgrade chance in destroyed packages
-more complex combat

I think a lot of these changes could freshen up the game quite a bit, and could maybe shake up the leaderboard for the first time in a while. tell me if you like or dislike any of these features and what else could be done better in the game.
