DeadCore is a Platformer-FPS featuring some environmental puzzles. The main idea of the game is you must climb a gigantic Tower as fast as possible while avoiding to be kicked down by its security system (robots, turrets...): on your way to the top, you will eventually figure out the truth behind this strange universe.

Deadlock changes its name and goes to GDC 2014!

As often we have multiple news to announce today. As said in the title, Deadlock changes its name to DeadCore. Why, you may ask? Just a question of intellectual property rights. There is already a trademarked...

Unfortunately we removed the old demo from the download section and to be honest we are not planning on putting a new one, sorry : /

Hi, I see that Deadcore saves into "$HOME/My Games" on Linux which is… wrong. It would be nice if you followed the XDG specification and saved in "$HOME/.local/share/5-Bits Games/Deadcore/" (this is what most SDL2 games would do) or "$HOME/.config/deadcore/", for example (feel free to choose either .local/share or .config and include your studio name or not, as long as it’s a unique directory…). Perhaps Unity3D contains a way to save at the correct place on all supported operating systems already?

Cool game, just bought it today and played a little bit. The main problem is the game is unplayable in fullscreen, I can’t aim with the mouse. I have to play in a window. This is on Arch Linux 64 bit with the Xfce desktop environment and Xfwm window manager, if that matters. This looks awfully like the well know Unity 3D bug when developers are using an old version of Unity 3D.

Hello stqn,

that's strange because we are using the last version of Unity4... we will try to have a look at it!

Ah, I tried again and this time it’s working fine! Strange.
(This time the game started windowed as I had chosen, then I selected fullscreen in the options.)
On my first launch of the game, when I was moving the mouse the view was moving slightly and then was going back to its original position.

Cool : )

A good way to ensure that the mouse doesn't leave the screen ingame is to press Escape to bring the Pause menu then click on 'Resume'.

We hope you will enjoy the game!

@Brackhar Thanks a lot, really! We know the game has its flaws but seeing players enjoying it is our biggest reward for those 2 years : ) Nov 18 2014, 2:36pm
@Brackhar That's so true... Hopefully having enough playtest sessions should give the level designer good hints: we should have had some ^^ Nov 18 2014, 2:09pm
@Brackhar Nice! Improving gravity readability + tweaking the level design (pace) of these sections would surely be a great improvment though Nov 18 2014, 2:02pm
@Brackhar You forgot gravity boxes ^^ But thanks a lot man! Nov 18 2014, 1:57pm
@Brackhar Yeah we realized that the feedback is confusing by seeing some players trying to anticipate Helixes movement to deactivate them :/ Nov 18 2014, 1:55pm
