Day 102

Armoured skeleton idle + attack.









This enemy is a tougher version of the skeleton with a real weapon and poses more of a threat.

It's hard to write down things that sound interesting when there's a lot of bug fixing and general tweaking rather than entirely new features added!

Day 102
* Added in orcs and armoured skeleton code
* Made a new test map with orcs and armoured skeletons
* Developed new map with orcs

Day 103
* AI Strategy changes depending on enemy type
* Loads last used characters
* Fixed bug where a host could start a game without assigning all players

* Now displays current skill and weapon in UI
* Added indicators to show if you can still attack, use a skill, or move on your turn.

How did I not notice this before! Mock Anger

Seriously, though, this looks awesome. Send me an email with the relevant details (summary of features, target platforms, estimated release date) and I will do a piece about it on IndieRPGs.com. Smiley

I'm looking at a few programs today to record some gameplay videos with. I think that the game is at a stage where I can show a lot of it off without having to explain it now. There's a lot of temporary placeholder art, but I think the 'feeling' of the game is there now.

Day 106

Zombie idle




I'm having a bit of trouble with the video recording stuff. I bought a program called Playclaw to record gameplay with, but the videos are huge (4gb for 3 minutes), and using a compression program on it afterwards makes the sound go out of sync. I really want to get a video out today.

Thanks again to everyone for the nice comments Smiley

GAMEPLAY VIDEO!




I spent a long time today working out all of the software and settings to get a gameplay video up on Youtube. I ended up using Playclaw for recording and then XVid + Virtualdub for compression. I'm really happy with how it turned out and it's good to be able to show everyone what the game is really like to play now.

Game is looking great and nice to see it in action finally  Smiley

Is there going to be a time limit with moves? or can players take as long as they want to decide?

Thanks! I've considered adding in a multiplayer option to limit turn times (such as 30 seconds) to keep the game fast-paced and not make players get bored waiting on one another. However, besides that, if you're playing single-player then you can take as long as you want.

Looks really nice in motion, more lively than I expected. I do have some concerns, but I won't express them because they're likely issues that may change as I see more.

Thanks for all of the nice comments everyone!

I'm glad I can show everyone the core game now, though I should probably point out a few things that aren't obvious.

The UI is definitely something that will change in the future. It's all programmer/placeholder art by me right now. I think I will change the turn order sprites on the right to be character portraits. All of the skills (the blue boxes) will be changed to nice looking sprites as well and everything will have a more uniform style once an artist gets a go at it. If you have any suggestions about UI I'd love to hear them.

One question I've had from a couple of people is whether something can be done about the movement during "downtime". As you can see in the gameplay video, the players still have to take turns to walk when no monsters are around. There are two solutions I can see to this (through discussion with Alastair). One is that the maps will be a lot more 'dense' so that there will be more action happening all the time (more monsters/chests/buttons/loot) and the only time you'll need to move when nothing is happening is when you've just cleaned out a room. Alternatively, I could implement a "free move" system where you can walk as many steps as you like, granted there are no enemies around. I'm hoping that a "free move" system won't be necessary, as I suspect that it may be confusing/frustrating to switch between unlimited steps and a restricted number of steps. The map in the video is just another test map I made as I haven't put any final maps in - I'm still putting in things like skills and weapons. So it's a bit sparse.

Day 107
* Added zombies in game. They have 1/3 chance of respawning on being killed.
* Added a speed up option during enemies turn. Hold a key and the enemies will move 4x faster than normal to speed up their turn.
* Added chests which you can open and gold spills out
* Added delays between certain actions/events to make it easier to see what is going on (e.g. a pause/delay on player death and firing an arrow)

I'd just like to thank everyone who has pre-purchased so far. It's truly motivating! I'm working hard on getting out a playable build for those who have pre-purchased to play with.  Smiley

Day 108
* Fixed Arrows/Fireballs to have better LOS (you could previously shoot enemies that you couldn't see properly). Took ages.
* Added ability to scale the game at runtime at 1x, 2x, 3x, etc. and fullscreen with the F1, F2, F3, etc. keys.
* Fixed how two players on the same square act. No longer bugs out if there are no places left to move, allows you to walk to nearest square.
