Just looking for volunteers to find bugs/exploits/gamebreaking stuff etc.
Latest version for download here:
Foxhole is a FREE game, eventually open-source. (And before you even ask...) Foxhole is not a game made BY or exclusively FOR furries. I do not like furries. Foxhole's gameplay is incomplete, that is to say, nonexistent. I value constructive criticism and use it to make the game better, but all I ask is not to yell at me about things which simply aren't there YET. This release is for TESTING purposes. Do not expect to enjoy yourself.
My motivation for making Foxhole does not involve money, fame, or a fetish for beastmen. It is a project with which I work on to hone my skills and eventually get some background material for a later possible career as a game developer of some sort.
Eventually, Foxhole may find its way to indieDB.
If for some godforsaken reason you wish to contact me, you can do so at email@example.com
If I had to describe Foxhole, I'd say it's a shooter-platformer injected with base-building/maintenance gameplay. The buildings all have gameplay purposes for existing, there are no cosmetic items or any focus on creative building. I know it's easy to draw similarities between Minecraft/Infiniminer/etc. and Foxhole because of the tile-based environs, but it's just NOT that kind of game.
UPDATE 12 (May 27)
-Fixed the various tutorial errors.
-Corrected Walter's color in the error screen. He was much too yellow.
-Fixed decorations having their lighting sampled from a tile off.
-Added grass decoration
-The in-game number of days that have passed is now recorded. This will be used for gameplay reasons and is also shown on the save file. This will break previous saves.
-Walter can now recall himself to the recpad by doubletapping R (or whatever you bind to R), it will sap his health and stamina, but not use polynyx.
-Added Fullscreen and Pixel Smoothing options. These are saved in the config.ini so the game starts that way.
-You must now hold down the RMB to stay in the building menu. Letting go of RMB confirms your choice.
-Adjusted crouching animation
-Added a few thoughtbubble icons that pop up over Walter for different events. These take priority over Walter's flavor speech.
-Added a N.A.D.S. hotkey. Press it to instantly equip N.A.D.S.
-The mouse wheel can now also be used to scroll through the buildables list.
UPDATE 11 (May 24)
-Added a Game Over screen. From there you can choose to quit to main menu or load your latest save. Note that you'll only see this if you die without a recpad. I may consider a difficulty mode wherein you may not use the recpad.
-Gelgrubs are slightly less stupid.
-Gelgrubs are no longer as quick to expire from your shovel spin.
-Solid buildings like the mineral crate and battery now affect enemy pathing.
-Added a quit button to the main menu.
-Doors will no longer close if an enemy is blocking the way.
-Changed door sprite
-Walter will no longer say "/none"
-Added sounds for the door.
-Changed digging sound
-Added Credits screen.
-Added new error screen. Test it by dividing by zero in the main menu.
-Added sand tiles. Identical to dirt/grass, except you're more likely to find polynyx in it.
-Polynyx from grass/dirt is now less likely. Haha.
-Added mushrooms. (Decoration)
-Decorations (Like plants and trees) are placed in a better way and are also saved into the map. Previous saves will break.
-Decorations are now destroyed when the tile they are attached to is destroyed or something is built on them.
-Changed the Control Setting Apply button to say "Accept" instead of "Apply"
-Walter's speechbubble no longer appears behind objects.
-Enemies must be closer to keep you from sleeping at the bed.
UPDATE 10 (May 16)
-Changed the spikefly sprite.
-Slightly fewer spikeflies will spawn from felled hives now.
-All weapons and tools can now be used continuously by holding down LMB
-Gave Walter a new move, useful as a melee attack, but that's not all... right-click with the shovel to try it.
-Added a new enemy.
UPDATE 9 (May 14)
-Control settings are now saved to config.ini.
-The controls you set for the keyboard are now exclusive to the keys you choose, with the default keys deactivated.
-Implemented a simple pause screen. It may be buggy. This really needs serious testing.
-Made a new cursor sprite for menus and what-have-you.
-Spikes and hives are polymorphically linked to buildings, and so they made machine debris when destroyed. I reworked this so that each object names its own debris type, so you won't see a hive erupt into an amalgam of gears and pipes.
-Fixed lightsources not lighting up your screenshots. This comes at the cost of not being able to make the crosshair invisible for the shot.
-Reduced abrupt camera movement caused by crouching in mid-air.
-Fixed some more minor memory leaks.
-Energy capacity is now enforced.
-Buildables now cost polynyx. No, the costs aren't properly balanced.
-Hives now have a chance of producing multiple polynyx drops when knocked down.
-Savegame directory is now made automatically if it does not exist.
UPDATE 8 (May 14)
-Added custom control mapping. (Doesn't save your settings yet)
-Fixed a bug that caused right-click events to take place when you didn't have your N.A.D.S. out. (Ha)
-Fixed a bug that caused the bed and console to become unusable after you die and are reclaimed.
-Fixed strange alpha errors made by screenshots.
-Removed a bunch of memory leaks caused by my not knowing that the gigantic data structures used to store world data and other things don't get freed from memory properly. Whoops.
UPDATE 7 (May 11)
-Added a new menu for loading save files. Each new game has its own save id, numbered 1-10. This means you cannot have multiple saves with one playthrough. Each save is a separate playthrough. This is subject to change.
-Buildings now create debris when destroyed.
-Walter will not sleep at the bed until he's tired (30% stamina or lower)
-You can no longer walk while in the build menu by holding down A/D before opening the build menu.
-Fixed a variable scope issue that caused buildings to be deactivated on a loaded game.
-Smoothed out camera movement a bit.
-The door now blocks enemy pathing when closed. This means they'll actually try to find a way around it if it closes.
-Enemies now delete their pathpoints and pathcarrots when destroyed. Should prevent potential memory leaks and instance pileup.
UPDATE 6 (May 11)
-The game now pauses when the window loses focus. A quick fix to prevent the ladder bug that allowed you to climb forever if you alt tabbed while climbing.
-Polynyx can no longer be picked up when you are dead or passed out.
-Added new tile type that lies deeper into the background. They act the same as empty tiles, in that you must build scaffolds on them in order to build there.
-You can no longer sleep at the bed if enemies are nearby.
-Walter now talks to himself. Don't worry, this will be optional at some point.
-The cave carver no longer carves through the surface.
-Changed the logo a bit.
-Added the battery building and the associated "energy capacity" stat for the base.
-Fixed a bug that caused loaded saves to get the wrong base values like mineral amount/cap.
-Added some new weather effects.
-Spikes and hives no longer spawn on top of buildings.
-Added an animation for Walter going to bed. (Now excuse me while I do the same.)
