v2022.06 & Glitchcaid 2
Beary Good News Everyone!
You can now download and play the most recent release of Kincaid! ^w^
Also, I made the final experimental construct, Glitchcaid 2, available for all $5 patrons. Please verify it out and let me know what you’re thinking that! Glitchcaid 2 is an overhaul based on our learnings from creating Kincaid. I’ll submit extra about it down beneath. But first, let’s take a look at what’s new in 2022.06!
Bear Enemy Added!
Find him within the spooky forest behind the rift within the tree prime palace!
Please word that a few of the graphics are nonetheless placeholders or unfinished. I wasn’t capable of full all of the animation work earlier than my LARP occasion, however I’ll get again to work subsequent Monday and the finished sprites will make it into the Quality of Life update we’ll work on subsequent! ^w^
Same goes for all of the sound results! The voice actor has despatched us a batch of recordings, however we didn’t get round to processing them and including them to the game. ^^
How to lewd frenemies!
In this construct we’re introducing a new strategy to have enjoyable with the enemies! We’ve proven this some time again within the “Domcaid” Experimental Build ( https://www.patreon.com/posts/61582560 ) just a few months in the past.
To set off a scene, simply stroll as much as the defeated enemy. If there are not any different enemies closeby, the game will supply you the possibility to have some enjoyable!
Do word that the Threesome isn’t potential to set off on this model. We’ll add that again into the game within the Quality of Life update.
Similarly the CGs was once for game overs. Going ahead we’re going to seek out a new strategy to combine them. For now you’re capable of take pleasure in them from the gallery!
I hope you just like the modifications! Please tell us what you’re thinking that! ^w^
But wait, there may be extra!
But this isn’t all we’ve been engaged on! As we’ve talked about in our roadmap submit ( https://www.patreon.com/posts/66500973 ), Null is presently onerous at work on an overhaul that includes an even bigger moveset, a increased decision and another issues.
I’ll simply copy and submit the discharge submit from earlier. ^w~
Important Note: Control Scheme is at the underside of the submit!
As the earlier Glitchcaid, this construct is supposed to assemble suggestions on new talents and motion choices now we have been engaged on.
Since none of the particular in-game content is constructed round these talents we made just a few uncooked ranges and packaged them into their very own little mini Adventure so that you can take pleasure in! ^w~
The ranges on this construct aren’t big however they’re difficult. We made them a bit tougher on function so that you’re pressured to essentially play with them and never simply fiddle a bit of bit.
Rest assured: The problem on this construct isn’t reflective of what the specified problem within the precise Kincaid game goes to be.
New Abilities & Movement Options
Here’s the listing of recent talents that you just’ll discover on this construct:
Ledge Grab – We felt like the fundamental platformer was lacking one thing. Barely lacking a platform and falling down felt dangerous. We went forwards and backwards on introducing walljumping that works all over the place and different choices to assist with that. In the tip we determined to go together with ledge grabbing/climbing. We thought it suits the kind of ranges we would like to construct a bit higher.
Crawling – Only ducking felt a bit too sluggish and limiting so we determined to introduce crawling. It received’t be tremendous sluggish tho, as to not interrupt the graceful circulation of operating & leaping. Together with the ledge seize it permits for way more fascinating degree design.
These mechanics solely exist in code now, I haven’t finished animations for any of them but, so the footage seems a bit foolish. xD
Reintroduced & reworked Hookshot – First launched in our “Glitchcaid” demo however deemed unusable as a result of of how little of the encircling space the participant can see. But since we’ve elevated the decision of the game it has grow to be a viable possibility once more!
Gliding – Kincaid’s boots can emit a robust impulse that enables her to double bounce. Now she will be able to emit the vitality constantly to permit her to glide down gently!
Rail Grinding – Kincaid can now use the forcefield of her boots to grind alongside rails at excessive pace! Cookie made the sprites for this over a 12 months in the past however just like the hookshot, this mechanic additionally wasn’t possible within the outdated decision.
Reintroduced Downsmash – Another skill that was first launched within the Glitchcaid demo. It was once a charged melee assault. We made it simpler to launch and introduced it again into the overhaul model.
Reworked Dash & Dodge Roll – The dodge roll felt too sluggish in comparison with the sprint. We introduced each talents nearer collectively and made the roll really feel extra dynamic.
More Platforming Forgiveness – We added extra small forgiveness tweaks like permitting Kincaid to bounce up a platform if solely just a few pixels are lacking for her to succeed in it! Nothing big or groundbreaking, however makes the platforming expertise even smoother total.
Higher Resolution – We additionally modified the game’s decision to raised help sooner motion speeds and extra concerned platforming.
Send us your Feedback!
How are you liking the brand new talents? Please ship us your ideas and notes!
This construct is predicated on the overhaul model I even have talked about in my earlier roundup ( https://www.patreon.com/posts/66500973 ) so just a few issues are damaged or not but completed.
For instance, we’ve switched to a new enter supervisor to raised help all types of controllers. The conversion isn’t but full, so rebinding keys doesn’t work as of but.
Here’s the default control scheme for enjoying this construct:

You’ll give you the chance to face the Heavy BOI by going to the apparent boss room within the higher temple space (or begin a new game, seize the upgrades you would like and use the handy-dandy warp portal).
The boss goes to want some extra polish across the cinematics and his tail slam assault impact continues to be lacking, however I’m taking a few days off and didn’t need to make you wait any longer! ^w^
If your save video games get borked you may now begin a clean save, seize any upgrades you would like from the brand new begin room and use one in all the teleporters to get close to the place you final left off.

Hi Space Adventurer! ^w^
This construct is a bit shorter on each options and new content. Null and I are specializing in ending up the most important story and redesigning the world map without delay. Until that’s accomplished we determined to make the following couple of builds smaller, centered on lewd content updates, till the overhaul is prepared!
We promise the wait goes to be value it!

- Fixed: Black display initially of the flight teacher scene (dialogue invisible)
I’m excited to current you with the most recent installment of Kincaid!
This one started off as a Quality of Life construct, however as life would have it, Null’s coding efforts took a bit of longer than he had anticipated and we determined to roll it along with a bunch of recent content to make one larger release.
Gecko Game Over CG + Sound Effects
The new CG set comprises 8 variations and the story that goes together with it is nearly 2800 phrases lengthy (2798 to be precise)!
I additionally talked about earlier that the construct would release with out sound results for her, however our sound designer is an excellent star and he managed to ship the brand new sounds means forward of schedule!
The solely factor lacking nonetheless is Kincaid’s climax – The sound impact acquired uploaded simply as I began importing the construct to Patreon. xD
New Combat System
Another big chunk of labor on this construct is the brand new Combat system. Null wrote it fully from scratch for a wide range of causes. We additionally added a bunch of further polish to Combat to make it really feel higher:
- New punch and splat results
- New “swooshes”
- Hitting enemies can knock them again
- Defeated enemies get knocked again further onerous as an alternative of simply splatting to the flooring like earlier than.
Let us know what you’re thinking that of the modifications!

Smaller Quality of Life Changes
In earlier builds of the game, whenever you hit your head it despatched Kincaid flying down, making some jumps unnecessarily troublesome.

I hope you’ll need enjoyable with the brand new degree set!
Cookie & Null
It’s lastly right here! But earlier than I am going into the meat and potatoes of the discharge submit I would like to say…

Without you I might have by no means dared to make a game of this scope! We love you! <3
!! IMPORTANT NOTE !!
Before you ask, this construct does not include new lewd content! If you only need to see new lewds, wait till the following one, as a result of I simply began engaged on the following scene. ^w~
But if you ought to see the brand new artwork & ranges and the general route we’re taking Kincaid, verify this one out!
Lots has modified!
… and is within the strategy of altering.
We’re within the strategy of switching gears from pre-production to manufacturing and numerous the work entails incorporating the brand new setting artwork and all of the modifications we’ve launched within the current Experimental Builds into the most important game department.
New decision – Old decision was too limiting and we acquired pissed off as we tried to introduce new enemies and mechanics. The bomb throwing and flying kobolds made this painfully apparent. We bit the bullet, understanding we’d have to transform numerous the degrees however we’re glad we did it!
All new setting artwork – Fabian did a tremendous job! Styles are totally different however they work effectively collectively, leading to extra readable characters on the planet. It was an enormous venture and Fabian did a tremendous job. The new tilesets look attractive and he touched up the entire Kobold Village to suit into the brand new type he’s bringing to the desk.
Reworking the world – Big artwork update and increased decision/extra seen space implies that it’s lastly time to transform the world from the bottom up – and on this construct we kicked off this course of! I’ve talked about it previously:
In the start of growth we simply form of constructed the world round what we had been making content and characteristic clever in the mean time. But we’ve now reached some extent the place the muse is there and we are able to take a look at it critically, take it aside and switch it right into a game expertise that makes extra sense. This contains enemy placements, cutscenes and story beats and the order wherein you purchase new talents.
There was additionally an enormous imbalance in space sizes – the jungle was so tiny in comparison with the temple and even the caves/mines!
We took a step again, seemed at our story and deliberate a world map for the planet.
Combat modifications – Kincaid can do full air combos that provide you with some quantity of air time. We need to introduce extra flying enemies and this transformation ought to make it extra enjoyable to battle them. Also the combo has been made a bit of bit longer and sooner.
Kincaid has some new motion choices
- Ledge climbing
- Hand over hand
- Ziplines (Coming subsequent construct!)
- Rail grinding (Coming quickly!)
We put an enormous deal with making transferring across the setting extra fluid and enjoyable!
Some minor Quality of Life issues
Inputs are proven within the higher proper nook for a second. Going to the pause menu brings them again up.
Options for lewd sound results – None, solely plaps and stuff, Kincaid, Kincaid+Partner(s)
What’s lacking nonetheless
CGs – Since Kincaid initiates now they aren’t appropriate for “Game Over” conditions anymore. We’re going to seek out new properties for them and rewrite the intros to suit the brand new context.
Enemy placements are momentary nonetheless because the world continues to be getting expanded on and new minor enemies, critters and traps will likely be launched in the approaching builds!
Not all rooms have been totally embellished but – so over the following 1-2 builds we’re going to cement within the visual artwork sort of the environments and biomes, together with ambient sound results and particles, and so forth. – Fabian’s artwork is so fairly and we need to make it shine!
Not all areas are finished but – You can play as much as the village and enter the rift to see wolf and bear however all of the quests have been marked accomplished for now.
Water move – Old water doesn’t match anymore and we’re engaged on a type that may work on all planets!
Rebindable enter – Temporarily damaged as we moved from GameMaker’s customary enter system to a new, extra strong one made by a 3rd social gathering. It’s extra strong and helps a wider vary of enter units from the get go and is stored up up to now!
Save Games – Save system isn’t on this release but as there are solely 2 areas. Instead the most important menu briefly affords you totally different, handy beginning factors. Don’t fear, your outdated saves stay and are playable with older builds nonetheless!
Fast Travel – The world has gotten very big and is barely going to develop, so we’re going to introduce a quick journey system very quickly.
No minimap but – we’re going to fully redo the complete UI and a part of that’s the minimap. We’re transferring away from a sq. based minimap to an area-based one.
No collectible talents – They’ll get reintroduced after all – At the fitting spot, in the fitting order. For now we’ve given the participant sprint skill and blaster simply to have some enjoyable with it.
- Jumping – A
- Attacking – S
- Ducking – Down
- Rolling – ‘D’ or RT on the controller
- Sliding – Ducking + Rolling
- Blaster – Q or B on the controller
