9️⃣Power Up

Create more exciting gameplay with stat power ups. These can be used as buffs and debuffs!

Build Singleplayer & Multiplayer Logic - about [SP] or [MP] behaviours or components


Attack Power, Damage Resistance, Speed, Health, and Oxygen are messages with arguments that can be sent from any behavior or component!

Players interact or collide with this object and experience a timed stat increase/decrease (attack power, damage resistance, speed) or a stat loss/recovery (health, oxygen). Can play a sound and send a message.

Damage Resistance

  • Use during a fight with a stronger enemy or a horde of enemies

  • Narrative: being granted temporary protection from a powerful being
