Residual v0.0.20: Save game has arrived!

THIS is the update we’ve all been waiting for.. or perhaps YOU have been waiting for it, and I’ve been delaying it and pushing it back and back and back!  BUT this week I finally introduced a save-game feature – experimental I should add.

It might still bug out in all the wrong places, but so far, a lot of it seems to actually work. It still needs a bunch of work and most of that is testing on my end, but it’s a huge step in the right direction. For now there’s just one save-game slot, and every game will “overwrite” that slot. So if you continue a game, and then exit the game (Escape to pause, then exit) it will save the current game in that save-game slot overwriting anything there.  The game will also overwrite an old game with a new game, so keep that in mind for now ;)

I’ll be doing more test and work on the save-game in the coming weeks, so we’ll eventually move to a proper system with multiple slots and hopefully bug-free saving/loading of games!

You’ll also notice a nice looking background in the menu’s interface.. this is a work in progress, it’s not final art, but it already looks pretty amazing! The rest of this update is me fixing all the stuff I had on the BUG list, so that right now I have only 1 bug left, and a large TODO list of stuff to introduce a bunch of new bugs with in the coming weeks :D
