GHCaramel v0.550: October Already?

Where did September go? Anyhow, here is a new release of GearHead Caramel. Enjoy.

GHC v0.541: More Melee Mayhem

GearHead Caramel v0.541 has just been released. Two new mecha have been added: the Phoenix and the Secutor. Combat has been updated, with both melee attacks and electronic warfare getting some much needed boosts. You can grab the binaries for Windows, Linux, and MacOS at GitHub.

Guided Tour of GearHead Caramel

I’ve made a short video of GearHead Caramel to show off some of the new features.

The Inevitable Bugfix Release: v0.510

As I should have expected, as soon as I released GearHead Caramel v0.500 last week a whole lot of bugs that had been hiding for months suddenly made themselves known. So this week I present to you v0.510, a release with far fewer bugs but one extra crab mecha. You can download it from the …

GearHead Caramel is now Public

I’ve just made the first public non-demo release of GearHead Caramel. Character creation is working. Mecha engineering and design is working. There is a lengthy playable campaign with an endpoint.

Power Level Surging

For the past week and a half I’ve been raising money to hire some C++ programmers for GearHead Caramel, and I’m happy to say that we’re almost there! I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed, ordered art, or bought stuff from my itch.io shop. Another $100 or so is needed before the programmers can …

The Adventure System

Today I updated GearHead Caramel’s adventure system. This is the bit that allows temporary content to be added to a campaign and then removed later- the same kind of stuff as GearHead 1 and GearHead 2’s random plots. GearHead Caramel inherited its plot system from Dungeon Monkey Eternal, and while DME has the ability to …
