Beautiful! What a great style.

Admittedly, the walk cycles on the spot are messing with my simple mind though.

Thanks for the kind words!

As for the "walking in place" idle animation: that's the number 1 criticism we've gotten from the fans to date, so you're not the only one, haha. >.<

The biggest issue at this point with redoing that idle animation is that it'll add a very large amount of frames to absolutely every character and monster sprite we have, and we have a LOT, and this is going to be costly. But, we're hoping we've found a good solution to the situation: we'll let the fans speak for themselves on their enthusiasm for this change.

If you check out the Stretch Goals in our upcoming September 26th Kickstarter, you'll see we have a goal to finance a new idle animation for all characters in there. It's the 2nd stretch goal, right after a fairly inexpensive one, so we're really hoping it'll get met.

Our plan is to provide the new idle animation, but retain the "walking in place" animation as an option to turn on for the fans that really enjoy the nostalgia factor from it.

It would be super great to get telemetry on that number too, but I fully expect that whichever option is the "default option" is going to get more numbers one way or another, which will skew things. Still, more data is always good ^^

Live on Kickstarter!

Not a devlog entry per say, but still an important part of the dev process!

We're collecting as much data as we can during the campaign and we hope to have a solid post-mortem to show for it afterwards, with lots of stats about what seems to be more effective or less effective.

Game looks great and I'm excited to see how much better it will be after going through the kickstarter process and getting feedback. We definitely need another entry in the tactical RPG genre. Too few new ones out there!

Haha, agreed! The world has languished too long without enough tactical games! But we plan to change that! Wink

Keep up the awesome work!

Thanks a lot!
We're entering the final 48 hours very soon at 81% funded, and it seems like it's going to be a very close call. Definitely doable, but we're going to need all the support we can get! Smiley

If anyone would like to help us out, we'd be very grateful! Kickstarter Link

Also, anyone interested in some design logs will probably like our Kickstarter updates, as we cover pretty much all our game systems and designs in great detail on there. You might want to start with the later updates, as some of the early ones mirror content I've already posted here in the past ^^


Some notable news is that we ended up redoing our idle animation from the "classic style walking in place" idle animation to a new custom idle animation:


old vs new

both sides

There was a lot of fans asking for it and while we initially had a Stretch Goal for it on the Kickstarter, it became apparent that the fans were very passionate about this issue, hence we decided on delivering the new idle animation regardless. We had to get a bit creative with our budget and schedule as we didn't want to drop any other content to deliver this, as it would be unfair to all the fans that were happy with the former animation.


Also, here's the concept art for a new monster we're working on right now:


Back to the grinder for me, as we now have 48hours to make this thing successful!

Thanks to everyone for their support! Smiley
