I’ve decided to give the bat some accessories; a hat and glasses.
I realized it would make a much more interesting character, and it finally gave me an idea for a name for the game. I’m leaning toward “Dapper Bat”. Simple, concise and catchy.
It also gives me a more solidly defined aesthetic to aim for, and most importantly, I can make them fly off when you crash.
The hat’s not done yet, but I exacerbated the crap out of my carpal tunnel working on this all day. So I need to rest my hands until tomorrow.
I’ll try to get the early beta out either tomorrow or the day after, now that I have a name. I just need to optimize a bunch of stuff so it runs effectively, and polish some of the mechanics.
Keep in mind that there is still a lot of stuff I need to add and polish for the final version.
