NULL AND VOID!
today i asked fans what they wanted to see in this weeks post and it was a pretty close between telling you what Void does and showing a new item.. so ill do both!
Void is the starting item for afterbirth+』s new character Apollyon and an item i designed because ive always wanted an item like this.
Apollyon is the destroyer so i felt it most appropriate that his item convey destruction as well as his army of locusts.
Void – usable item – charge 4
on use void destroys all items in the room, if an item is a usable item void now gains that items ability when used ( this stacks ), if the item is a non usable item it gives the player a random stat bonus.
void will also destroy all pickups in the room as well and turn them into a small army of locust ( blue flys ).
pretty neato huh? after designing void i got in this destruction and stacking effect kick and designed this little thanger.
Smelter – usable item – charge 6
on use smelter destroys all trinkets you are carrying permanently applying their effects to your character.
i like this one a lot, same idea as void but can make for some really interesting bonus effects in longer games.
this will be a store item btw.
NOTE: items subject to some changes before release 😉
