Chrome Extension / Firefox Addon Released

Intruder Notifications
Hey agents,
 
Have you ever jumped on Intruder at 2 am, joined an empty server, and waited in vain for others to join you? This is a surprisingly common scenario. Of course we're still a small community and this is normal, but it sure does suck. The worst part is because people arn't inclined to do it twice, the person playing alone at midnight will often be completely unaware of another person in the same situation at 1am. Lots of missed games. No fun. If only there were a way they could find each other and play together...
 
I'm happy to say this is a solved problem. Rob recently created and released the Intruder extension for Google Chrome and the Intruder Firefox addon. They're both called 'Intruder Notifications' and they're functionally identical, so use the one for the browser you prefer. You can see how many people are on which servers. You can see regular notifications when people are playing. You can be notified when a certain amount of people are playing. It's not very complicated, and it works well.

So far it's already been remarkably successful at getting players together. We've had numerous 6v6 games at 2am since the extensions have been released. Plus, presumably it will be even more effective as more people learn about and install the extension.
 
You should get it now...
 
So what's the backstory?
The results of Bloxri's survey made it very clear that the Intruder community wanted some way to see server information without running the game. Within the span of a week it seemed like Rob came up with the idea of an extension, talked to the community about it in Discord  - and decided to go ahead with it. Both extensions were actually created in just a couple of days, while Rob was [redacted] in the bahamas with all his [redacted]. He figured he should put in some [redacted] so ya'll would send him more [redacted]. Anyway, download the extension and have fun!

Target Practice

Intruder balloons

Hey Trudas,


Rob has been working on trudy-faced balloon targets.

Intruder Bloons in garden

Looks pretty cool, right? They're satisfying to shoot too.

For now they're just target practice when you first join an empty server, but eventually they could be a deployable gadget. Personally I found they really are great practice. They taught me to use the sniper rifle properly. And they're addictive! I spent a good bit of time figuring out how to best run through the level to pop the balloons in the least amount of time.

Visit the discord chat to get the experimental Unity 5 build and play with them yourself :)

And don't hesitate to post your bloon speedruns to the Intruder subreddit. Just expect fierce competition.

Have fun.

Hang out with us on Discord

Discord overview.

Hey 'trudas.

Have you heard of Discord? It's a new chat service. We've been trying it out for a month or two now -- no secret to those who frequented our IRC channel. Turns out everyone likes it, so we're sticking with it. We want you to join and hang out with us.

What makes Discord cool?

  • It has text AND voice chat.
  • Text chat is permanent. You can join today and scroll back to see what's been said since the beginning of time.
  • You can edit and delete your messages, without restriction.
  • It has an intuitive user interface that is welcoming to new users.
  • There are web, desktop, and mobile apps for all common platforms.
  • Image and video links show inline previews. Links to ordinary webpages show description text.

Plus, our old IRC bot has joined us. He's not fully functional yet but his most useful feature works. He announces new games starting. I'll talk about Z26 in detail some other time, after he's more complete.

Z26 doing his thang.

Join the Superboss discord chat today! It's where the cool kids, robots, women, etc are at.

Speaking of IRC, our channel (#superbossgames on Freenode) is generally inactive these days. It's still somewhat populated, but it's an echo chamber because the regulars have migrated to Discord.

You're convinced? You want to join us in Discord?

How to join

Click Connect in the sidebar to the right or click here . We're pretty casual so don't be scared to join the conversation. The main rule? Be respectful. To say it another way: "just don't be a boop".

See you.

- Rolig
