Default We are alive.

Worry not, Cavadius is still being worked on. I wasn't able to do anything on it for close to a year due to real life concerns, but now I've got a lot of free time to spend and I'm choosing to put some time into Cavadius quashing bugs as well as working on new design materials.

I'm feeling particularly good about this day's work, and I've got plans for tomorrow as well.

You'll probably be happy to hear that we've done quite a bit in the past week and change. A metric ton of bugs have been fixed, and while there's still a lot of work to be done, I think the light at the end of the tunnel is actually visible.

There're at least two things that need work that's going to be time consuming, though-- both are working routines but with EXTREMELY messy, hacky code.

I can't give a preliminary release date. There are only two of us doing the project, and we both have lives outside of this.. jobs, families, etc.. so any date I could give would be subject to EXTREME change.

If you ever need any sprites from games let me know. It would seem that there is no need right now, but as the game is worked on more and more you may find need for something.

I wonder which game the new mini-boss originated from...

And, remind me again: what's gonna be the boss of Stage 2?

The miniboss comes from Salamander 2, and wasn't actually a miniboss in that game. I just kinda made him into one. As for Stage 2's REAL boss? Here's a hint.

You know what would be really sweet? If you put that great cyan sun in the actual game and kept the Mk. II as a silhouette. You'd possibly have to make its lasers red, though.

(Or are you already doing that? It seems as if you are!)

Nope, this is just the spawn effect for it, kinda similar to Gradius V but not quite. It gradually fades into its actual colors, and the blue glowy effect fades out.
