It's been a long time since I last posted any announcement, but fear not, I've been working hard on this (as fast as possible).
As some of you know I'm working on a Xbox One port of Quest of Dungeons at the same time as the v2.0 updates.
I had the opportunity to port the game and as a solo developer this is a great opportunity to have my work shared with more people so I can support my games. It takes a lot of work to get this done, especially since it's my first console game and I'm learning on the way.
Full controller support
I took the opportunity to add a whole new interface for in-game usage with gamepad. The KB/Mouse is still there, but when a person plays with a gamepad it has full support. This is taking quite some work but I think it's worth it, I know many of you have asked for this in the past so I think you'll like it.
Here are some WIP videos:
The "traditional" interface with KB and Mouse is unchanged.
New Class - Necrodancer
There’s going to a be a new class, a Necrodancer.
Yes you guessed it, it’s an homage to Cadence from the awesome game Crypts of the Necrodancer, you should buy it btw!
I had the crazy idea of bringing Cadence to the game as an unlock-able and not one of the main starting characters, talked to the devs of CotN and the liked the idea (thank you again), so it’s happening.
So among the things that you unlock when you finish the game, you also unlock the Necrodancer, she’s going to be a mix of several things, close combat, magic and debuffs.
I hope you liked the news, this is just some of the bigger ones, there are several other tweaks all over the game.
I still don't have an ETA for this, and it's coming after the XO release, I appreciate everyone's patience with this, as I've been teasing it for several months now, but things tend to take more time than anticipated, especially if you are working alone :P
