We decided to continue Wild Rails development by 2/3 weeks milestones, and we will keep you updated with the progress that we have achieved during the latest milestone. In these last two weeks, we had a lot of goals to achieve, and thanks to the efforts of all the team, we implemented many new features to the game!
4 players co-op
Finally, the game allows up to 4 players! Team up with your friends and face the challenges as a bigger group.
FMOD implementation progress
Our composer and sound designer Dario has implemented the sounds for all the weapons with FMOD. Now the gunfights are more exciting than ever!
To introduce more co-op mechanics, we redesigned the reviving system. Your teammates can revive the defeated characters to continue the heist.
New health system
We decided to modify the health bar to be more readable. Now the health is displayed in hearts instead of a bar.
Money bag and loot from enemies
To make the looting less repetitive, we came up with the concept of moneybag. The player can collect coins, dropped by defeated enemies, while progressing through the level. All the characters have the moneybag, which can be thrown to the heist wagon at any time. But be careful! Getting hit by enemies will make you lose coins!
New playable character
Emil “Hummingbird” Bright, the nimble-fingered burglar joins the gang of playable characters!
The Halloween-themed playtesting on 25.10 was a success! Alongside the testing we held a Halloween costume contest between all the testers. We were so happy to see so many people dressed up and enjoying the evening!
Stay tuned for the next update!
