Hey!
As is usual, I have once again started the devlog when the game is already well underway.
The Finnish War x Sotidrokhima: Finlandsaga will be a non-canonical sequel to this https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=69704.0 and this https://forums.tigsource.com/index.php?topic=69847.0. You don't need to have played any of the former to be able to understand and enjoy Finlandsaga however.
The game will be a real-time strategy/hack n' slash hybrid since it combines gameplay and story elements from both aforementioned games.

Good job, you are improving on the gameplay and the game lore, only thing that I would suggest is to polish the visuals a bit or to find an artist

Thank you! Yes, visuals will still be improved along the way I'm sure.

New gameplay element!
In Sotidrokhima, you could enter Adrenaline mode after a killing spree, and the same mechanic applies here:


Here we see Sotidrokhima with adrenaline mode unlocked, meaning he gets all the killier:



Aaand here, Sotidrokhima has unlocked the improved mechanic; SUPER Adrenaline! Visualized by bright red flames. So the more mooks you squash, the stronger and faster you get, encouraging more bloodshed in true Sotidrokhima fashion!

Defending against incoming Russians! This is a General Sandels level so it's RTS. Sotidrokhima's levels are hack-n-slash.

Still in July, we will work with the voiceovers. Story and voicework will be done in this month.

CHARACTER INTRODUCTIONS

Vainamoinen


Vainamoinen is the legendary seer-sorcerer from Finnish mythology, the central figure in the Finnish national epic Kalevala, and one of the game's main protagonists. More than a thousand years ago, as Christianity began to set foot in Finland, Vainamoinen left the land - promising to return one day.
Now that day has come, as Vainamoinen senses the return of his former nemesis named...

Louhi


Louhi is a powerful sorcerer from the Pohjolan tribe, a Finnish tribe opposed to the Kalevalans, of whom Vainamoinen originates. Vainamoinen defeated Louhi long ago by imprisoning him in ice.
Now Louhi is returning and he will be the game's main antagonist.
Louhi is sort of a tragic villain here; obviously being frozen for a thousand years means he has lost everything he once knew.

Sotidrokhima


Sotidrokhima is the main protagonist of his eponymous game (2022) and now returns for Finlandsaga. Soti is a Finnish warrior from the Karelians tribe, and a Son of Kaleva - descendant of the war god Kaleva - himself ignorant of the fact. He will be the other playable character in the game, alongside...

Sandels


Sandels, or general Johan August Sandels, was a major character in The Finnish War (2022). He will be the second playable character in the game. Sandels will lead platoons of troops into battle gloriously as he did in the 1800s.

All characters will have familiar voice actors to those who have played The Finnish War and/or Sotidrokhima:
  • Vainamoinen will be played by Markus Nybom, who voiced Istervo in Sotidrokhima and Tuchkov in The Finnish War
  • Louhi will be played by Goatson, who voiced Kaleva in Sotidrokhima and Buxhoeveden in The Finnish War
  • Sotidrokhima will once again be voiced by Jarkko Bjorklund
  • Sandels will once again be voiced by Olavi Helenius
