More Features, Delay and Final Release Date
  • A Whole New Campaign! The game already included Solo Campaign and Time Trial Campaign. As good things usually come in threes, why not to include a third one, Battle Arena Campaign, where you would fight through a sequence of different arenas and bots? Enjoy!
  • A Smorgasbord of Maps for Multiplayer and Bot Fights Instead of fighting friends or bots on the same clean pit-less map, you may now choose from a variety of unlockable arenas, randomly positioned pits or go with the old good clean map;
  • Better AI I added a few improvements to the AI, so the fights against the bots (as well as the fights they will have among themselves) should be more challenging.

New Features + Apology for the Delay
  • 4 Different Bots Difficulties. Choose between Sloth Bot, Knight Bot and Ninja Bot. And for those of you who are going to become especially good at Battle Arena, you may wanna try fighting the Boss Bot. This will hurt though. You've been warned.
  • Bots Infighting. OR you may just pit two bots against each other and relax watching them engage in explosive battles of strategy and speed.
  • Instant Restart. You will be able to instantly restart the mission so no waiting for the complete defeat or play report animation is needed.
  • Game Taunts. When you get a bit unlucky with escaping a chain reaction, the game will occasionally taunt you with a random cultural reference. Don't worry, it won't get too harsh.

Description
Release date: 15 December 2017
PyroMind is a minimalist and merciless puzzle game which is all about defusing bombs and escaping chain reactions. The rules are simple: move your bot through the field and score points by collecting bombs. If you don't reach a bomb in 10 turns, it goes off triggering all nearby explosives. If the chain reaction does reach you, you are gone. That's the core mechanic in a nutshell. Then, of course, there are various odds and ends, such as local multiplayer, boss bombs and even a way to perform stunts. 




So these are the main things you'll find in PyroMind:
  • Unique core mechanic. Defuse bombs and escape explosions, but mind that different bombs explode.. well, differently.
  • Classic Mode. Take your time to plan your moves and see how long you can survive.
  • Time Attack. Basically, you only have one minute to show your best.    
  • Rank System. If you fill that colored goal bar at the top of the screen, you'll get promoted. And with promotion come a next stage with more features unlocked.
  • Local multiplayer. Outscore your friend and fry them with a ray of laser, or manipulate chain reactions to blow them to smithereens.
  • Bot Fights. So you don't have a friend? Practice against a bot so that when you find another player, you are delightfully victorious.
  • 15 character skins. Ice Mind. Fire Mind. Helga Mind. Jester Mind. Orc Mind. Cold Lithuanian Beet Soup Mind. 



Not exactly key features, but PyroMind also includes:
  • Leaderboards,
  • Achievements,
  • Trading Cards,
  • Fully Customizable Controls,
  • Controller Support.



If PyroMind gets greenlit, I would like to release it in July 2017 for PC, Mac and Linux. It will cost 1.99$. If people do enjoy this little game of mine, I'm also planning to upgrade it with network multiplayer.
