    Gonna have heaps of fun on this one :).

    I'll make a proper announcement soon if I actually stay focused. With all the gameplay features I have in mind, it'll be worth it :D.

    Glad you like it! I plan on it being multiplayer-only, with game server lobbies, upgrades, achievements, maps, and competitive game modes.
    Should be a handful, but it's something I can definitely work on. Just gotta stay focused, which I've never been too good at.

    Thanks pal, I look forward to it too mainly because I believe it's something I'd personally enjoy regardless of a user-base.

    @JfN I could imagine it being a good open lobby point based game like slither.io

    My current plans are more toward matchmaking lobbies as seen in many console games than open lobbies. I do plan on certain game modes which may require one or the other, so they are both simultaneous possibilities. The basic game mode will simply be a wave-based survival mode, therefore matchmaking is the best option here. Other game modes could have difficulty-by-number-of-players style lobbies, etc, in which open lobbies are the best option.

    Points will definitely be used, as well as ranks, and the possibility of character/weapon upgrades via earning in-game currency. Private servers/lobbies are also something I'm thinking about.

    Got this running at a steady-ish 60fps. Could be going somewhere, here.
    24 hours ago I could barely hit 20fps.
