This week we have launched 4 items in the shop!
First of, we finish the Jungle Theme with death and respawning! and who better to avoid dying in jungle ruins than an archaeologist? ;-)
The first new brick is a checkpoint. When you touch a checkpoint it will turn green, and that is you new respawn location (if you haven’t touched a checkpoint, the default world spawnpoint is your respawn location). It works pretty much like you would expect.
The first hazard we have introduced is the spikes. If you touch the spikes you will blow up :-) And then respawn at the latest checkpoint. Again, pretty much like you would expect.
Spikes are the first hazard, but lava have been suggested countless times, and that will probably be added soon.
We have added a couple of commands:
“/respawn” – Respawns you at the latest checkpoint.
“/respawnall” – The same, but for all players (for world owners only).
The game mechanic (checkpoints and respawning) can already be made just using portals. But the new bricks makes it easier to make (and understand for players), and also prettier. And of course, the death animation really makes it funnier to see other people die ;-)
But there is more. We also launched the christmas pack for 2012, containing large gift wrapping paper and ribbons.
Very neat :-)
Have a merry christmas!
