Seems nice, actually.

I like the idea of “map script”, he obviously has some “doodads” collection, that are small sprites/bitmaps to be placed over the main map area, and a set of textures to make backgrounds. While small, this shows GiaB’s class.

The game looks pretty good so far…

Oh, HAI!

Yeah, it does. People that hang around here still want it…

Next one on the 26th?

well, seeing you want to go forward in time, whack yourself over the head, you’ll get free 6-8 hours of coma that you won’t have to wait in frustration :D (Obviously, this isn’t the best way to traverse time forwards. Get a life, I’d say.)

A lot of good updates since I last checked this. I just got a new computer for the holiday, and so I can’t wait to try it out on this new Gem Game :)

hehe, now it’ll not be just mindless grinding, or you can get swarmed with a 1000 disablers – boom, your dead.

Yep, cool. Before that I couldn’t say more than “well, another post – thanks”, now it stirs something good within me. Freeze spell – I really need that for ME!

Next update: Shadows

http://gameinabottle.com/blog/2013/02/gc2cs-shadows-gcl-is-2-years-old/

Now, shadows can eat up or somehow damage our gems. While tricky to balance, this is a worthy addition to shadows’ powers. Perhaps these will make an average gamer rage quit, separating elite from casuals. ]:D

I already assumed I wasn’t going to be able to beat this game anyways… (Or even get halfway through it)

Not sure how it works completely but i understand it as, the gems need to heal or something, recharge it power, so while it sits in your inventory your forced defenseless, or have a 2nd gem set ready to pick up slack.

I also love/hate the idea even during pause your not safe from them.

In case you badly need to pause while one of the shadows is on screen, there’s always Options menu. Count in-game active pause as a time stop spell of that wizard, which is partially resisted by shadows.

And yes, this mechanics will encourage or force to go with multiple gems.

I like the idea that shadows makes the game somewhat un-pausable, as long as that only applies while they are actually on screen. If they can appear while paused, I think it’s a mistake.

Did the dev say that the options menu will pause everything, or are you just assuming based on past games?

It’s just more logical to have the game totally paused while in options, since it’s like “passive pause” where you can’t do anything. “Active pause” was introduced in GCL, and is seemingly being reworked a little.
