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.

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...

Hi, picked this game up today and it's been great fun. It reminds me a great deal of UT2004 trials :)

I have noticed one issue though, right and downward mouse movement is a little slower than upward and left movement, and if i move my mouse very slowly downward or right it does not even change the camera angle at all. It's frustrating when trying to hit far away objects. Is this a known issue?

I'm running 64-bit Arch Linux + Gnome.

Hi buckley310,

that's strange, we don't have the impression that this is a common issue.

Could you send us more information here (like your hardware details and a screenshot / video of the issue): deadcore.helpme@gmail.com

Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience : /

Vraiment un putain de bon jeu ce Deadcore, même en étant pas un assidu de plateforme à la Meat Boy. Bravo à toute l'équipe, vous méritez d'être reconnus :)

Merci, ça fait bien plaisir ce genre de retours : )

Après la reconnaissance... disons que d'avoir fait un jeu qui (globalement) plait aux joueurs c'est déjà énorme en terme de reconnaissance !

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?

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!
