After going through several months of development, GearHead 2, the FreePascal roguelike of random plots and huge mecha, has achieved a “completable” status! recently released Version 0.5.30 includes this as well as new mecha, new themes, and some adjustments to the combat system.
This mean you can now play from start to end, using the random campaign generator that will make your story be different each time.
Random plots are one of the defining features of the vapourware genroguelike; however after years of experience and development, Mr. Hewitt has become quite a Gepetto on the topic!
To celebrate this milestone, gearheadrpg.com will be holding a competition. Anyone who completes the game (without cheating) by January 31st 2009 and submits their victory file will get a postcard from them!
What do roguelike developers have with postcards? we all know about the postcardware model from Adom, but this is something completely new!
What are you waiting for, board your mecha and drive your way through the Spinners!
