Rewrite Status

The game has been mostly rewritten from scratch in Godot 4. The legacy branch contains the initial, Godot 3-based version of the game. This version of the game has served well as a prototype and a testbed to help us figure out what we want to do. We've also learned some important lessons on our mistakes.

We wanted to take advantage of the improved performance, features and workflow of Godot 4 and since the GDScript syntax is changing significantly - we've decided we'll take this opportunity to rebuild the game from scratch and improve our design.

Compared to the legacy version, most of the features are done, along with some extra things thet were either not done or not possible in Godot 3.

How to Edit the Game

As Godot 4 haven't had a stable release yet, we're bundling the Godot editor and export templates in the game repository (in the Godot folder). If you'll try using latest Godot nightly builds, things may not work. Updating the whole game to the newest Godot version is doen periodically by the core team. If you think it's time to update - file an Issue and justify your iquiry. If you just send a pull request that breaks compatibility with the currently used Godot version, it'll most likely be rejected.

Libre + Blast = Liblast

No, it's not a library ;)
