Residual v0.0.24: The mushroom effect

A nice big and juicy update is here! Coming with a lot of  goodies and improvements. The most fun I had this week was with adding effects to the mushrooms! If you find some of those tasty mushrooms, before this update, they would give you full-health back.. now with this update.. they still do!  BUT  they also come with side-effects: Dizzyness, heavy-weight, munchies, blindness, and others!  Every planet has different mushroom-effects tied to the mushrooms.. so what happens on one planet, doesn’t need to happen on other planets. You won’t know until you try eating those shrooms!

There’s now also a third playable character added, this one will most likely be locked away behind some cool “explore and find” quests at some point in the very near future. There’s a long list below with so many tiny changes, new items (craftable HoverStones!) you better just boot up the game and take it out for a new crashlanding – you’ll also find a couple of space-rations in your inventory when you start new games.. so if you find yourself on a VERY empty planet without much food, this should help you survive the first day or so!

Bringing us to yesterdays video! Showing the credit screen and the ship’s take-off animation.. watch, like, subscribe here:
