PURE ONYX – November 30, 2022 Test Release
The first major feature is an entirely reworked asset loading system. The part you’ll see for now is a new startup segment, which should not only perform much better and load faster, but will serve as a framework to add splash/loading graphics and the new main menu. The benefits of this loading system rework extend into gameplay as well, as you should see reduced RAM consumption. Load times and performance will further improve in the future as we make use of the benefits from this rework :D.
A second major feature is the turn animation system. Onyx and enemies will now play a unique turning animation based on their current state when they change facing direction. There are a lot of cases for this, so it’s not perfect yet — some AI cases need work, and some animations need improvement / some glitches fixed / or are missing still. Once polished up however it will look far better than characters simply flipping (especially big enemies).
We’ve added a rough version of the 3x Vioreaper H scene for Onyx as well — it needs more time in the oven but I wanted to get it in at least.
We’ve also knocked out a few more bug fixes since the post last night, so be sure to check out the list again if you saw it previously.
About Pure Onyx
Pure Onyx is a classic beat ‘em up with RPG elements set in the world of our flagship title, Malise and the Machine. It follows heroine Onyx as she brawls her way through the dystopian streets of New Babylon, where she’ll encounter gangs, crime syndicates, a corrupt police force, and the bio-engineered horrors of the insidious Babel Corporation. It features fully animated, 3D art and is styled after 80s cyberpunk anime. Pure Onyx contains in-game, fully animated H content.
Pure Onyx is currently in development for Windows PC, with an eye on Mac and Linux closer to retail release.
System Requirements: Windows 7/8/10, 8 GB of RAM, 2 GB discrete graphics card
