Carnage Cross

Happy Holidays and New Years!

Hi everyone, it's been a turbulent year, but I hope you find warmth and happiness at the end of 2022. Thanks for all the compassion you've shown this project and to me. Stay tuned for more news after the holidays. Thank you.

Brightness Hotfix

Hi everyone, I've disabled "Enable Fullscreem Optimization" for Carnage Cross's .exe, this may be the cause of some of the brightness issues being experienced. I will add in a brightness option in the next update. Thanks for your patience.

November Optimizations and Polishings

Hi everyone, attempted some more optimizations and polishing of levels,

The current priority is to keep working on gameplay, level design, and to add more AI and weapon mechanics this year.

I hope you all have a great and happy Thanksgiving.

Thanks for always being so kind to me.

November Small Patch - Tightening Controls, Variation, and Camera

Hi everyone,

I've attempted to tighten controls and add more handling variation unique to each vehicle.

Resetting the camera position will now lock the camera behind the vehicle until it is toggled off or if you lock onto another vehicle. Before it would become free style depending on any input detected by the mouse or right thumbstick.

Will work harder to do more. Thanks everyone.

November Small Patch

Hi everyone, thanks for your compassion these past few months.

Updated the game to fix a few minor bugs and made pick-ups more visible from a distance. Hope to accomplish more of the previous to-do list this month, so stay tuned!

Thank you all for the support during these times.

Rest in Peace Dad.

I hate to share this, but it impacts everything. My dad passed away on my birthday, Oct. 26th, last month. I lived with him as a son, best friend, and caretaker for the past few years. His passing has left a lot of questions for me to figure out while I take care of my mom.

As a solo project, this will affect the progress of updates while I look for full-time job.

In the mean-time, I've compiled a to-do list of features and fixes to be implemented in the coming months based on your feedback. If there is anything I've missed or you would like to see added, please let me know.

Thank you everyone and I hope you tell your loved ones how much you love them. Love you Dad.
