New signs in Escape the Sector – Billboards in space!

Not incredibly exciting news, but a chance to show some screenshots of progress nontheless…

I thought Escape the Sector (for Android) needed some better instruction, specially on the later levels where it’s unclear which direction you need to go. I was going to leave it so the players can explore the level, and learn the direction through the maze, but it seemed to frustrate some people – probably because lots of red boxy cliffs look identical!

So I’ve added some signage, pointing to the exit.

As well as some new animated signs with the message to “Evacuate Evacuate”!

I’ve also created some new playable ships – so that I can create a player select screen.

Probably not quite as cool as the ships created by Dave Bisseg (see those here), which I’ll also add, but I just enjoy creating new ships in this boxy, voxel style!
