Another update to Dream Team Royale

Image
Another version of Dream Team Royale is out!
What's New The latest update is full of new features! The most important one is the addition of a new power up called the Team Reset. After noticing that players tended to quit the game because they died before they killed anyone and therefore couldn't win we decided there needed to be a way to rejoin your original team. The Team Reset is the solution to this problem. When you run into one you immediately are put back on your first team. From there you have ten seconds to kill an opponent to remain on your team. If you do not kill an opponent you will go back to the team you started on. This is a Team Reset.

At most eight Team Resets will appear ever game. Another noteworthy addition in this update is the improvement of enemies. They now follow a much more sophisticated algorithm and will make the game even harder to win. This update also includes an exclusive new character in the Store section of the game. In honor of it being spri…

Dream Team Royale Damage Deflectors

Update #6

Damage Deflectors are blue shields that reduce the damage done by bullets, and redirect them. To get one, you run into one that is not around an enemy, and then it is in your possession. Here is what one looks like:


Once you have picked it up, it can be used by pressing the 'd' key. This will cause one to appear around you, like this:

The Damage Deflector will stay active for ten seconds, unless you have a Stopwatch, which would prolong the ability. While it is active, the Damage Deflector causes every bullet that you are hit with to do two damage instead of the normal five, and it makes the bullets bounce off of you so they will likely hit their own shooter. When the bullet is deflected, it turns into the same shade of blue as the Damage Deflector. They have no effect on the way the player with the Damage Deflector shoots bullets or uses other power ups.

As the game is beginning, two Damage Deflectors are randomly placed. From there, they appear at random times in r…

The first two power ups announced for Dream Team Royale

Update #5

Speed Boosts and Stopwatches

Speed Boosts are blue crates randomly placed throughout the map that, when you collide with one, gives you increased speed, as the name implies. This is what one looks like:


One Speed Boost is placed at the beginning of the game, and then more are placed as the game goes on. When you run in to one, it immediately goes into effect, giving you somewhere from 100% to 250% more speed. The extra speed then goes away after five seconds have elapsed.

The other power up that has been announced today is the Stopwatch. Stopwatches are power ups that supplement other power ups by making their effect last longer. So if you have a Stopwatch when you use a Speed Boost, instead of lasting only five seconds, the effect will last five to fifteen seconds longer. Here is what a Stopwatch appears as:


No Stopwatches are placed when the game begins, but they do appear randomly at other times. To get a Stopwatch, you collide with it, which places it in yours supplies, …

Meet Dream Team Royale's second character, the Cat in the Box!

Update #4

The Cat in the Box

Unlike the Fish Blimp, the Cat in the Box is based off of something in real life, not just random dreams. The original idea came from an experiment by Austrian physicist Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger, but this was no ordinary experiment. The experiment, called Schrödinger's Cat by some, was designed to show why he didn't believe the Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics. The experiment involved sealing the cat in the box along with decaying radioactive particles, a Geiger counted, and poison. The end result was supposed to make the cat both dead and alive until the box was opened, then it would become dead or alive. However, this experiment was never actually performed, as it was just for thought. So, when we made our real version of the cat in the box, we left all the extra materials out, so would could be sure whether the cat was dead or alive.


That is Axel, the most famous Cat in the Box (at least in Dream Team Royale). Here …

Watch out for Nightmares in Dream Team Royale!

Dream Team Royale Update #3

Nightmares

Nightmares are a dangerous part of Dream Team Royale. The first Nightmare ever spotted was caused by the fear of one of the original Fish Blimps, named Water. Water was a very talented Fish Blimp. She were constantly winning and setting more and more records, and was leading all of the other Fish Blimps through tests. One day, Water was about to go into the most strenuous test ever attempted and was beginning to grow anxious. Her anxiety and fear made the Nightmare pop up, and, out of curiosity, Water went right in. She have never been heard from again.

After this happened, the remaining 20 Fish Blimps were terrified. They refused to try any new tests for weeks after the disaster. All of the fear they built up made an innumerable amount of Nightmares come into existence. But the developers soon solved the problem. They could not completely remove them, but they did figure out how to limit the Nightmare's impact in a few ways:
Instead of poppin…
