I did. Two times, and died two times on the first stage. Third time it was better. I got to the third stage. After I died on the boss fights I felt that I should take a break. Now my arm feels a bit stiff. Not so used to 3rd person shooting :D
My left pinky isn’t used to ctrl key for running, so I’m a little injured as well... [OT] MetaOld - I suck at hard games and my body is stiff...

#Senpai Isn't Sprint a toggle? I'm sure i just tap it now and then rather than hold it down. I'll try both when i go in after the GBPax League of Heels stream.

Play on easy to unlock new characters, they have different archetypes, hover your mouse over locked characters to see the requirements (actually the last 5 ingame achievements).
The 3 first ones are easy and kinda fast to unlock, the last 2 will take more time: one of them requires 11 Lunar Coins (2nd currency you keep between games), the other to "finish" the game.

I'm liking this game way more than the first one so far. I have just been playing solo so far, but it's been a blast. It's also very easy to put in 40-50 minutes like no time has gone by. Single player games should take note.

Has anybody else had a first level without a teleport? Just happened to me tonight!

I hit a 90 minute Mercenary run. Until we get an endgame (if we do), I’m pretty much trying to unlock things know. Artificer is my goal now.

The little I time played with the artificer I felt she was underpowered compared to the other characters.

The Mercenary is definitely a boss murderer if you keep your R to dodge AoE nonsense, you can just hop on top of them and chop away for days. Except Magma Worms... don't stand on those.

My brother and I got destroyed our first couple tries on normal, then looped twice our first try on easy. We did easy a couple more times to try out the characters we unlocked, and then had pretty good success on normal - I think they key is actually some of the items you unlock help a lot, as well as figuring out the finances of when to hit the teleporter to minimize time in the level and maximize opening loot.

I still have yet to play the first one despite owning in it. Anyway, based on the reviews it looks like they successfully transitioned to 3D which is impressive.

I've only played a few minutes of the first, but I plan to go back know that I understand the game via playing RoR2.

How do you get the portal to the lunar cave? I need to unlock the only character I have left...
Either get lucky with shrine of the mountain or spend a coin in the shrine of newt

When you beat the level a blue portal will appear right next to the tp

What exactly does the mountain thing do as I clicked them before and I see nothing different?

Makes the boss stronger, (could mean more copies, modifiers, etc) with 2 possible effects when you win AFAIK:

  • Double boss item drop
  • Opens a blue portal

Ah okay..I spent liek 5 coins on those lunar things in levels and no portal =(
There are 3 lunar things you can spend coins on:

-Lunar box: gives you a lunar item
-Shrine of Newt: opens up a blue portal after defeating the boss
-Shrine of Order: randomizes your items (seems to be skewed towards multiple copies of 2 or 3 items)

So, 650-150 freebies = half a million sales, roughly. Congrats to the devs for managing that on a shitty platform like Steam, on EGS they'd have doubled that!

Some cool points and update info for it.
Loved the first game and I am happy with how it got translated to 3d with it basically still having a year of development but the original game was still getting updates like 2years after launch
Keep in mind the Dev team is like 3 people as well

○ Arrow Rain proc coefficient raised from 0.1 to 0.2 per tick.
Arrow Rain had a very low proc coefficient because of its AoE dot status, but it was unnecessarily low.
Nice. I felt Arrow Rain was a bit underpowered.

If I don’t come across a key for sale in the wild, I might look into just picking the game up and whipping myself for waiting until after the BOGO to buy it.

Absolutely loved the first one.
