    That looks so awesome! X3
    Also... Is that a second one? Can we use two at once?!

    Yes like tiy said, with two he feels like spiderman, so i think that you can shoot one per hand and this swing around with one while shooting the second already :D

    i'd like to see it in action, the pictures look a bit odd. I don't think the hooks will work like terraria.

    Hmmm........so now the question is, how do we use this to make a catapult?
  11. My complaints are that the actual rope/cord graphic looks really odd, and that the hook always points up, no matter where it's attached.
    I'm pretty sure these things will get fixed, however.

    would be fun if you could actually use it as a catapult to launch yourself, it would be one of the best things ever for me.
    then again, why in the world would somebody implent that xD

    No, they definitely won't. It's more like a springy-rope with a grappling hook on the end rather than terraria's scorpion'like "get over here" effect. If you look through omni's post history I'm sure you can find the game he was inspired by and watch the video of it to give you a clearer idea of what it's like.

    According to Tiy on reddit, there are different grapples, each with different characteristics like rope length, swing speed, elasticity, and extend/retract speed. It looks like these are quite a bit more advanced than the grapple in Terraria.

    Yes that is more a sneakpeak and not the full version. Omni said that he just finished the hooks today but Tiy was insanely happy about them and thus showed them a bit too quick in an unfinished state.

    But i like it still. I like when new good mechanism work as intended and "only/mostly" graphical stuff is to fix C:

    I hope grappling works like it does in Worms Armageddon.

    I know I'm dreaming (that will never happen) but if it did? That would be way too cool.
