We haven't done any development on EGv8 in quite awhile, but I have finally restarted work.
Our new artist didn't pan out, she ended up being too busy with other things to replace all the existing work. The work she did do was pretty awesome, but it doesn't match the style of the other images so we aren't adding any of it.
I have been refactoring a bunch of code to make it easier to add new things to the game. I have also been working on some super secret new enemies that I think everyone will enjoy.
Thanks to an awesome fan (yay for open source) we will be integrating joystick support in the next release. It doesn't work perfectly, but I don't have a joystick/gamepad to test with. If you want to donate one let me know.
That is all for now. Sorry for the super long wait. This project didn't die, it just went to sleep. Time to code.
