Previous versions were never meant to be final in any way, this is what we were aiming for all along! It was marked as Early Access on Steam for like 5 years, I just wanted people to be able to play the WIP versions and give feedback.

Score/time targets were removed since they were honestly total filler before the game got long enough to have enough stuff "on its own". You already play 4 variants of each stage (Boki/Savant x Normal/Hard) through 12 worlds, so the time/score goals were redundant, plus Endless is huge now for people who still want more stuff to do. Damage goals were kept though, since it gives experienced players a thing to aim for (otherwise you can just plow through early levels with basic shooter knowledge, without needing to pay attention to the layouts or enemies).

We have a chat room for this game by the way! It's pretty chill, you can talk to me and Raibys and post cat pictures and there's rooms for Splatoon/Smash/Warframe too since we ended up with a bunch of players for those. https://discord.gg/kHdnYwD

Wish I had some kind of personal connection to this, but when raocow was playing through this years ago, I was in a *really* rough patch in my life.
I'll sit it out, wish I could post this without bumping it or really bringing much attention to it. Hope the rest of you enjoy it :rao:

I'm glad to see this return. It's just a fun game to watch while also being a perfect fit for bringing out the most jovial in raocow. It is a little weird seeing so much change from what felt like a pretty solid game before, but the new presentation does look good, and reading that the game has reached a state the creators were aiming for all along is promising. And ultimately, once the levels start, it very much feels like the same old Copy Kitty (at least as long as our good friend Ar-mega-don is still around).

I think cutting down the full star/cookie requirements to just one criteria makes a lot of sense, especially with so many replay opportunities already baked in. Even with optional challenge content, overwhelming the player can end up discouraging them or diluting the focus of the game and drag down the overall experience. I would maybe default to using score instead of damage since you still have to plan and play carefully while also giving an incentive to learn the scoring intricacies and keep your combo meter up, or time since speed running has become such a natural extension of gaming mastery, but that's purely personal preference, so I can't fault the devs for preferring the damage goal.

Copy Kitty is one of the few indie games I've clocked over 100 hours on. It's outright one of my favourites and I'm overjoyed to see it return!

It's pretty much just the besterest.

Something to consider next video if it ends up short, but maybe check out the Database in the Extras menu.

Also, reminder for next level of the gloriousness that is

I just have to say that I love this game. Not only is it amazing, but I can't think of any other game we've consistently had happy cow in virtually every video. We need a way to turn this into as long of a series as the Megas.

I am dissatisfied with only 3 levels a video. You used to do 5 in the past, for Copy Kitty.

I'm fine with any video length, just keep in mind there's 135 levels, so this would be 45 videos per character at 3 levels per video. I'm totally fine with that if that's the pace you want though, especially since this is the b-side anyway! (The levels do tend to get longer later, but not by a huge amount)

So like

I don't really enjoy watching this game and will be skipping this series, but I feel obligated to update the OP since I'm in this forum on a daily basis anyway

So I'm gonna try to do that!

raocow: If you want to know what a weapon does, press the weapon switch button.

Also, you definitely want to switch weapons around and pick up other weapons from time to time, don't just keep the weapons you happen to have until they run out or you'll make things harder on yourself later on.

raocow's reaction to Magna-Crush was everything I hoped it would be.

Given he's going for low-damage stars, I think he'll naturally pick up this habit as he works out the "route" for each level.

Magna-Crush is a delightful, delightful thing. But... oh gods, I have to bite my tongue. There's so much I'm looking forward to.
Everything Yoggval. Sky Yoggval. Phoenix Yoggbal. Spectrum Yoggval. Yoggval is what pushes the final design of Copy Kitty above and beyond.

Seriously though, the improvements from Turbo are fascinating and give the game a structure it sorely needed.

A nice little quality-of-life feature that I noticed while playing last night: On repeat plays of a level, the game will actually tell you if you've taken too much damage to earn the level's star. A small "no star" symbol (star with a red X through it) will appear in the upper-left corner of Boki's health meter when too much damage is taken. You can see this happen in raocow's latest video at 3:00.
