Upcoming game includes a classic-ish take on platforming
Fans of 20XX and the upcoming 30XX may want to take note: developer Batterystaple Games has announced that it will now include a “Mega Mode” into the challenging rogue-like platformer. The mode eschews permadeath and allows certain progress to carry over during each run, meaning that you can enter a procedurally generated level without fear of losing all of your gains should you perish.
The dev team claims that this could be a boon for those who want to play but maybe don’t want the strain of constantly restarting, losing both progress and time. It may not make the game any easier, but an added mode like this could mean that those who want to do a bit more exploring and traditional platforming will now have that outlet.
30XX arrives sometime in the future (2021?) for PC and consoles.
