Version 1.1.0, Build 8.6 - Biggest Update Ever Update! (BUEU)

Welcome to Version 1.1.0, Build 8.6 - the BUEU!

Hey everyone, it’s been a while! We’ve been hard at work on our latest game PAC-MAN 256, but now that work has wound down on that (for now) we’ve managed to sink a bunch of time into Fight The Dragon development to get some really cool new features for you all to play with!

OSX FTD versions are now only 64bit
Due to a bug in ALL of the latest Unity versions that make OSX 32bit builds insta-crash on launch, we have had to move FTD on OSX over to 64bit only

This change will only affect users running anything older than 10.6.8 (we think) and if that is you, please contact us in the forums and we’ll see what we can do about getting 32bit builds happening again, but that might take some time as we wait for Unity to fix the bug.

If we don’t hear about any players being hindered by the 64bit move, we’ll keep it like this going forward.

New ability loadout system

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=502443777

Our big new feature this update is our brand new ability loadout system, giving you much more flexibility and a greater degree of customisation for your characters. If you’re level 5 or above, you’ll notice a new book beside your house in the Home screen, this is where you can customise your abilities.

We’ve added four new abilities for each class, each one unlocking every 5 levels (which means if you’re level 35 or greater, you’ll already have all of the abilities unlocked). When customising your loadout, you can see how much mana each ability will cost - you’re no longer limited to an even distribution of mana costs. This means that you can take multiple abilities with the same mana cost into an adventure!

You can still only take 4 abilities into an adventure, but you can now choose which out of the 8 per class you love the most.

Multiplayer difficulty improvements
Since release we’ve had a lot of feedback on our difficulty balancing, particularly in multiplayer games. In Version 1.1 we’ve made significant changes to balancing in multiplayer games that will hopefully make multiplayer adventures more dangerous and exciting!

Many enemies have had their special attacks modified in order to better deal with multiple players, particularly Mini-Bosses. Lightning elementals can now summon more than one lightning attack, Necromancers can summon more than one skeleton at a time, etc, etc.

Some enemies can now also attack more often when multiple players are in a game, and some enemies are faster.

Any enemy that summons other enemies (Spawners, Necromancers, Rock Golems) will now be able to summon more enemies in total when in multiplayer games. So the Necromancer was able to have 12 skeletons active before this patch, now the Necromancer can have 21 skeletons active in a 4 player game.

We’ve also increased the base damage and attack speed of almost all enemies when in a multiplayer game, as well as a slight health increase in 3 and 4 player games.

New ACK feature: Random Node

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=502444134

A particularly exciting new feature in the ACK this update is our new Random Node - this node allows you to create unpredictable scenarios in your adventure! When editing a random node, you’ll have access to 5 outputs - when you fire this Node with an event, it will pick randomly from one of the outputs you’ve hooked up and fire the appropriate events.

You can also customise the rules of the randomisation: want to make sure each outcome is eventually fired? Set the rules to “No Repeats” and the node will only select from outputs it hasn’t fired yet. Want pure randomness? Just set the rule to “Random” and your Adventurers will be at the mercy of the dice...

New ACK feature: Camera Shake Node

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=502444751

We’ve seen some creators use destructible walls hidden away from the player to simulate a screen shake, so we wanted to make that process a little easier. You now have access to a Camera Shake node, with a customisable radius and magnitude.

Keep in mind that if a player has CameraShake off in their game options, they won’t see the shake.

New ACK feature: SFX Node

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=502444440

Our new SFX Node allows you to play a variety of new sound effects in response to events in your Adventures. Each node has a customisable range and volume, so you can tweak how your players hear the effect.


1.1.0 (Build 8.6) Change List
New
  • Added 4 new abilities for each class
  • Added a new menu in the Home Screen to customise your ability loadout
  • Added a new Lock feature to prevent accidentally dropping/selling loot items
  • Added an option to disable the “Are you Sure” prompts when donating valuable loot
  • Added a death effect for the Pyromancer
  • Added some new character skins
  • ACK: Added new ladder teleporter types
  • ACK: Added a new “On 50% HP” event for enemies, fires once when their health drops below 50%
  • ACK: Added new Random node
  • ACK: Added new Camera Shake node
  • ACK: Added new Audio SFX node

Changes/Improvements
  • Spawners (Static and Necromancer/Rock Golem) now increase their spawned enemies cap by 3 for every extra player that is in the game
  • Necromancers can now spawn more than one skeleton at a time in multiplayer games
  • Rebalanced enemy health and attack speeds in multiplayer games
  • Pyromancers can now summon multiple fire attacks in multiplayer games
  • Slightly increased base damage output on Rats and Scarabs in multiplayer games
  • Elemental enemy special attacks can now target multiple players
  • Removed player-player collisions in multiplayer games
  • Added particles when a player enters/exits a multiplayer game
  • Added a screen shake to the Fighter’s “Shield Push” ability
  • Tomes now fire their effects twice when triggered
  • Added a small light effect to Tomes
  • Improved animations/polish on a heap of UI elements in the Menu
  • Improved enemy pathfinding and state logic, especially when navigating around obstacles
  • Fixed enemies not being able to navigate around Static Spawners
  • Necromancers and Pyromancers can now reposition between attacks
  • Rats and Scarabs now award half XP
  • Reduced size of enemy ragdoll colliders, should be easier for players/enemies to navigate/walk over
  • Fixed lots of popping light sources on enemy projectiles/death sequences
  • Improved the initial camera rotation in the Dragon Arena
  • Removed the “Notice a Bug?” load screen message (there are no more bugs :P)
  • Increased "Flash Freeze" freeze duration from 3s to 5s (Ice Wizard’s ability)
  • Increased damage from "Aimed Ice" (Ice Wizard’s ability)
  • "Aimed Ice" now freezes enemies for 2 seconds (Ice Wizard’s ability)
  • Fghtter "Beserk" attack now registers an effect, so a countdown is visible near the health UI
  • Added new timeout for initial online server pings to prevent game from stalling when blocked by a firewall
  • ACK: Rearranged menu layout/categories to accommodate new features
  • ACK: “Fire Once” event checkbox is now only displayed on events that can be fired multiple times (Will no longer display on one-off events like On Enemy Killed or On Chest Opened)
  • ACK: Hovering over an object with multiple events (Enemies, Gates, etc) will now show pink lines for ALL events, not just the first event - YAY

Players can play single player, local split-screen couch co-op (2 players) or online multiplayer (4 players) to complete 10-15 minute adventures in a non-linear order, which allows players to jump in for a quick fix or play multiple adventures over longer play sessions. Collect loot, level up, conquer enemies and become a master adventurer!

Become the ultimate Dungeon Master you always dreamed of being!




Fight The Dragon ships with a highly flexible in-game Adventure Construction Kit (ACK) that allows players to design, play and share their own adventures with other players on all platforms around the world.

The ACK (as is the gameplay) is designed to be as intuitive to use via a gamepad as it is via mouse and keyboard. Creators are able to sculpt and paint environments, place props, enemies, NPCs, Traps, checkpoints and other key game elements including hooking up basic logic systems for switches/gates and traps.

The Fight The Dragon community have already published over 1600 fantastic adventures, which means we have hundreds of hours of gameplay already created.

ACK FEATURES
  • Great assortment of Melee, Ranged and Mini-Boss Enemies
  • Large selection of textures to paint environments with
  • Static & Dynamic props including realtime lights, traps, bridges & more
  • Super intuitive editor allowing rapid design
  • In editor play testing at any time

Dragon Battle Arena




As heroes complete adventures and reach milestones, they earn tickets that allow them to go “Fight The Dragon” in the ultimate dragon battle arena.

Every player has their own dragon to fight, and each dragon has MEGA HP, so killing your dragon will require many encounters and a lot of skill. The damage you do to your dragon is persistent between play sessions, so collect as many tickets as you can and go battle it out! Each ticket grants the player 3 lives, but be warned, there are more ways to die in the dragon arena than just the dragon, so stay alert!

Gauntlet with a neverending array of levels at your disposal and that my friends is a good thing indeed. There's a big dragon that needs slaying that serves as a progress marker of sorts.

Once you become strong enough to put out that fire in his belly... then you got to fight 2 dragons and a juggling bear on a tricycle. It never ends.

I have really been enjoying Fight the Dragon. Because of the nature of the game, no adventures are too long. It's fun, especially if you only have a few minutes, to play an adventure or two. I like the reward system where you use loot to take a chance on better equipment or other upgrades after your adventures. The leveling system is nice because you don't seem to get too overpowered too quickly and the fight with the dragon, at least at this point, seems to be a big challenge. The creator tool is a lot of fun. It's easy to use and you can quickly learn to make a decent adventure. There are a ton of user-created adventures and many of them have been very good. There are some good guides available. The graphics fit the game nicely and are very reminiscent of Little Big Planet, MySims, etc.

I think you'll really enjoy the game if you're in to RPGs, Hack n Slash and loot collection, especially if you can get it on sale!

Edit: The more I play this game, the more I like it. There are some really creative and fun designs being done. It works really well with my XBox wireless controller. I haven't even touched the dragon fight since the first time. I'm just having too much fun with the quick adventures.

The game model functions very well - controls, stats, loot, combat (for the most part), and co-op. The premise of the game is to adventure in community-created campaigns, finding keys, unraveling small plots, looting better items, and making your way to fighting the dragon by collecting Dragon Scrolls. It's almost like Shadowrun Returns, but without the developer-created campaign. There are some REALLY good adventures to go on by the community.

However, it's like finding needles in a haystack - the majority of GREAT community-created scenarios are far and few between. Many fall short between amateur DMs and wannabe writers akin to middle school English class. 75% of the adventures you will partake in often have glaring issues like loot balancing, confusing or short level design, awful dialogue and spelling mistakes and more. It seems like anyone can create a dungeon with 5 rooms, 50 potions, tons of easy enemies and enough loot to make the game not much fun.

This game is AMAZING for DM's and really shines in the way of quick pick-up and random co-op play. It falls short in the way that the majority of the content is shallow or just bad. If you dig hard enough, you'll find gold though.

I rarely review something because it felt good. My first impressions always dictate if I will like a game or not. Good job to the devs, I liked everything I just experienced and I will play this game for a long time I think! Nice little dungeon crawler. No match to join online due to low community I guess, but you can grab two copies and play co-op with a friend, this is even better. Playing with an Xbox 360 controller was pure joy (you can even scale up the UI to play from the couch haha, little things).

You can download little skins for your character from the Steam Workshop and even full adventures !

Lets keep this review nice and simple.
This game is great fun if you have ever enjoyed Diabolo or similar RNG loot drop dungeon crawlers.
It is on sale and is superb value for money at moment....too be honest i would be happy to pay the full price for this.
multiplayer DOES work and it is fun although intense for a newbie trying to keep up with the other seasoned players.
I recommend keeping the defualt keymaps as they are as this is def the best layout for the ingame keys.
It also supports game controller that I do not have so cannot offer comment.
Great fun so thx all
