Funny, because I was cooking up a 4-player top-down cooperative action RPG that I started working on right around the time this devlog was posted, but now it appears that I no longer have to continue working on it. Tongue

While the games do have some similarities, I think mines more of a Smash TV type game with some versus elements while yours is more pure Gauntlet style... But I have to say that I'm absolutely in love with the graphics!

Thanks for the Nox remark, I love that game, played it so much back in the days and I was hoping so long for a sequel. However I don't think we come close to that game in terms of graphical quality =) But a good thing you guys brought it up, because that game has a lot of level features similar to the ones that I'm building here, with traps, buttons etc - I'm gonna reinstall it again.


On to some dev things...

We have just sorted out who's gonna be making the music for this game and we are working out details about our Greenlight trailer, hopefully we will be able to sort that out this week, not sure about that though... but we wanna get this game onto GL asap.

Added a few types of secrets to the game, standard "mega-man-esque" secrets with destroying a wall or walking through one. Also, I just tried using something other than the 360-controller, I used the SNES one and it was so great playing with that, the snes dpad really is the best ever produced.



Most active skills are in the game now, except for the warlock (more on that later), it's a great coop-experience using the skills in combination with another class, like for say the Overgrowth (ranger) and the Meteor Strike (Wizard), the Healing (Paladin) is obviously a very powerful skill too.

We decided to redesign the Warlock, because summoning isn't that fun so we are removing it and replacing it with something which doesn't play for you.

The first draft of the shop, this is where the player buys upgrades and such, it will most likely look different later on. Right now you need to enter it through the console, it should of course not be like that =)


Also, localization support is being added, so the game can be translated to other languages, modders could do this later if they want... We will of course ship the game both in Swedish and English.

Hope this helps!  Smiley

Yes, this help. Some really good ideas, especially the one about requiring more than one player to accessing certain areas.

After our greenlightstuff's done, our next goal will be to create a beta of act1 with full features and a boss. We are not sure yet, if it's gonna be public or closed for certain people... Seeing the increased interest in the project, it might be a public test. It's still a couple of weeks until then.

I just want to tell you this:
The only thing more awesome than the crisp graphics of Hammerwatch is its sound design.

Some of these sounds will most likely be changed and a lot of sounds are missing, it's not that easy finding sound effects as you might think.

You should make some, but process them a bit. It's fun! I remember making some sword hit sounds with forks hitting pots and stuff, and grinding against each other.

We were playing a lot this weekend, to get material for the Greenlight trailer. The trailer will be a sum of most things I've shown, will be partially in SP and COOP 2/3/4, show the puzzle, buttons, secrets and will also feature our first music.

When I have more time, I think sound is one of the things I need to see if I might wanna get more into.

Ok, these are three different vendors, they are just recolored versions, the speech bubble is supposed to indicate whether they sell offensive or defensive skills, or misc items such as potions, 1ups and so. The store is in the game now, in a proper way, just go get close to the vendor and hit attack and the vendor panel displays.


I did symbols instead of writing text, because it used up too much space, I hope it's clear enough what they mean.


This is the greenlight splash image. If everything goes as it should, the greenlight should be up today, with a real trailer.

I like the potion symbol and the shield as well, but I think the sword needs some work. Make it a bit more clearly a sword (not that people will necessarily get confused, but it almost looks like a flower or a cornstalk. A little bit of editing and it should be great.

I'm loving how the game looks so far, though. Keep up the great work! Smiley

Better late than ever, some of you already saw it!

Ok, so here it is - The GREENLIGHT-TRAILER!







The trailer features many of the features currently "done", shows both action and more calm gameplay. It's also featuring one of our Act 1 songs, tweaked for the trailer.

In a very short time, we've gotten a very good response, I sure hope we can deliver on that!

Next big step for the game is to prepare a public beta, with more or less all Act 1 features, including the boss. Next small step for me, is to write down a list of theme features and such to send to our musicians so they can start thinking about the music for the rest of the game!

I don't know how long it's gonna take to create the beta, there really is a lot to do, code and draw the boss with it's features and surroundings, complete the rest of level 2 and the entire of level 3, make sure the game works online, the UI with menus and shop works and so...


Uploaded a full clip of the act 2 gameplay featured in the video, it's a bit more action in this than shown in earlier videos.




I like the potion symbol and the shield as well, but I think the sword needs some work. Make it a bit more clearly a sword (not that people will necessarily get confused, but it almost looks like a flower or a cornstalk. A little bit of editing and it should be great.

Yea, the sword is the symbol I have issues with, the others I think work, at least for now.

Great work on the trailer, it's short and sweet, I <3 it. Also casted my vote.

I think the icons for shops in place of text is a very good idea. Just make the sword, shield and pot just like in the game's lovely pixel art and display those in the speech bubble, it will look good.
