A new character enters the Orangepixel universe: The Janitor

A new character enters the Orangepixel universe: The Janitor

More game development this week, taken straight from the developer’s TODO list and task management, here’s an overview of what has been fixed, changed, updated, improved or generally worked on in the Orangepixel Universe.

Okay so a little feature creep, but this Janitor dude is a fun addition to the game, and he kinda makes sense looking at the “final boss” battle! Great idea Discord crowd!

He also has some text here and there, and I might have him drop a super rare item at some point. He won’t show up in all rooms, but it’s cool seeing him appear!


Combined the “feature creep” janitor guy with the animation stuff I did and created a nice credit-monolog out of it ! Some fun stuff added but I won’t spoil it here, and a cool way to show the game credits


I might have been inspired a bit too much about all the Lego games we’ve been playing. But it does feel good having so many unlockables and meta-game thingies in the game. Bottom left of the title screen now shows your progress for: Runes, Codex entries and Forged Magic cards (perma unlockables)


Apparently my cool weapon-upgrade system wasn’t working AT ALL (it worked at some point tho!) So union weapons (2 weaponts next to each other becoming something new) and combo weapons (1 weapon ontop of another to turn into something different) both pretty much never happened in game! Fixed now!
