Ion Fury  "formerly Ion Maiden, launching August 15!"

I hope there's different options when it comes to the crosshairs.
A red dot.. that is all that's needed, or atleast more discreet.

Maps look great though... but that's to be expected from DavoX :)

I might be in the minority but I think that gun is a little too high-res, especially compared to some of those textures :/

Yes, the crosshair bothered me a little as well. But I wouldn't be able to tell what's 'wrong' with it, it just stood out when I saw it, but I quickly got over it, no big deal.

I think it will also be easily moddable. :)

The latest screenshot looks great, btw. Except for the little portrait in the lower left, but that is more of a character thingie neither Voidpoint nor the mappers could fix.

If you buy the regular, vanilla version on a steam sale, will you get the prequel?

No.

Apparently the delux edition does get you access to the beta, but this does not entitle you to a free copy of the final product. IIRC Hendicks said something along these lines when I asked a while back.

Screenshot looks wonderful, but I couldn't help but think that the weapon sprite could do with a bit of slight tweaking:

I don't even want to know where she's been "holstering" that one...

I sincerely hope this will be a good release since I'm looking forward to a new Build engine game to possibly map for. All dependant on gameplay and what it will offer. Liking what I've seen so far.

Yeah I'm definitely interested in mapping for it too.

Wow, screenshot looks awesome. It's amazing that an old engine can look that good...

Anyway, is there any more information regarding this project? Like:

- is it a standalone game? Because I'm not that interested in Bombshell;
- is it the same length as any of the main build games? (Duke, Blood, Shadow Warrior)? Or is it more like an expansion/dlc?
- any information regarding the release date?

I'm sorry if these questions were already addressed before.

You don't need Bombshell to play it, but if you buy the special edition of Bombshell, you get beta access to the prequel.
The project's overall vision changed at some point and caused the game to essentially be 'delayed' despite not really having an official release date to begin with. I take this to mean the project became bigger than what it was originally intended to be.
That is about all we know.

I personally like it, makes me think of Redneck Rampage with it's high resolution weapon sprites.

Really great palette, I love green, blue and brown colors a lot. All 256 colors work well together, what is very important. Also feels unique.

So is this going to be built on the Duke 3D source code like Redneck Rampage or is it going to be on an independent version of the Build engine like Blood?

Built on the EDuke32 source to avoid years of extra work.

Is it normal for the colours to go beyond the row like that, or is it something fancy?

That's just what you get when the amount of shades per hue isn't a power of two.

But if the total amount of colours is the same doesn't that mean something's had to be cut out?

Not at all. It's just a matter of which hues the designer thinks are the most important. Those hues get more shades assigned to them, at the cost of others. That's why Duke3D and SW have four hues with 32 shades and the rest only get 16 shades, while Blood has one hue with 32 shades, two with 24 (!) shades, four with only eight shades, and the rest with 16. Bombshell's palette is simply... visually unbalanced in that way. But you know what? So are ROTT and Wolf3D's.

I suppose it's a good variety. A nice black gradient. Two Browns, two greens, two blues, a purple, a red, red/orange/yellow and gold.

Are the bottom ones full brights?

They might be. Duke3D's last 15 were, but that's no guarantee.

I've pretty much I've heard TerminX ITT or in another thread say they used a trick to change palette as they wanted.

Gotta wonder what's so tricky about that.

One thing I've always wanted to see in a "2.5D engine" is 8-bit style colour palette cycling. I admit it'd be tricky especially with different lighting, but there's gotta be some application for it...

Now that would be a neat trick. Color cycling is easy, but then there's the shading and transparancy tables, remaps... Frightening. You could only get away with that in Wolf-tier engines.
