So, it looks like 0.2.6 will be ready next week. It features the first appearance of modifiers -- a general purpose tool at the core of Voxatron's scripting engine. I've been using them recently to create conditional monster behaviours and attacks using custom bullets and emitter patterns (these will also be available in 0.2.6). I'm really happy with the way modifiers have turned out, and I'm sure level-designing people will learn to love and hate them in equal measure. There's also another dev diary on the way which has the gory technical details.
In the meantime, here's some papercraft Voxatron by @jitterworld that is currently staring at me. Check out some of his other papery stuff here.
(Those drawers are around 25cm across -- it's not a giant life-sized thing)
Finally - if you're in Tokyo this weekend, drop by the Lexaloffle office on Saturday, because I'll be testing out some experimental 4-player Voxatron code on the unsuspecting public, along with a preview build of Towerfall and the newly released and splendid Monaco. For more information, see Pico Pico Cafe's Indie Games Night page.
