Major Content Update! New A.I, Maps, Networked Painting, and Languages!



Warpaint receives a huge update today!

New A.I, Maps, Water, Networked Painting, and Languages.


AI
The AI has is a lot smarter now. It will form escort squads to move catapults around. It won't try to shoot through walls. It's now a challenge to assult the AI's castle, it's got new defensive tactics. It can also create it's own objectives, such as targeting your throne or capturing your catapults. I also gave it beleivable catapult shots, so it won't shoot perfectly anymore. Be careful though, that means it will get lucky double kills!

Maps
There are 4 new maps:

SineHills



Designed to be the introduction map, it's simple, small, highly competitive, and has lots of cover. It features a central tower with a neutral catapult, surrounded by an inaccessible lake.


Vikings



Open combat, on a deserted and sandy island-fort. There's no where to hide on this map, so make sure you get some double kills. Take the center catapult for both a catapult and a height advantage. This screenshot was taken with an orthographic perspective because it's pretty :3

SwampWaste



No neutral catapults on this map. Battle for control of the slightly elevated cover in the ruins of a castle wall. Larger army size, perfect for competitive play.

MidnightInParis



This map is designed for maximum epic. It features 5 catapults per team, back by huge armies. The attacking force is split into two squads, one assulting the broken castle wall, and the other rushing the gates. This one will take you about an hour to play through. Built for advanced players. Inspired by the TV show 'Vikings' and their assult of Paris.


Water
Many of these maps now have water, and the water has silly water physics. Shoot a dude into the water and watch him flop around!

Networked Painting
Your enemies will now automatically see any of your painted figures. Enjoy!

Languages
The game has been translated into:
-German
-Spanish
-Portuguese
-Chinese
-French
-Swedish
-Russian

So with any luck, ranked matchmaking will be lively again!

Also, I've packaged the soundtrack as DLC. Please purchase this to support me and the other devs!

Warpaint is a physics boardgame where you command an army of dwarves and launch catapults. Strike fear into your opponent with your customized, painted army. Victory is won through superior tactical positioning and siege dexterity. Climb the rankings and brag about your battle born brains. The game is easy to learn, quick to play, and maintains tension at a relaxed pace.

Your dwarves attack and capture pieces similar to hexagonal chess. Use catapults to assault castle walls and break open gates.

The game is designed to be a fresh approach to classic tabletop war games such as chess, Warhammer, and siege.

"My younger son, 13 and me spent an hour in Warpaint swapping the headset over each turn. that is the longest he has ever played a vr game says it is great so well done" - HappyOtter

"It's a fun miniatures tabletop game without the expense of the tables or the miniatures" - twynstar

"I really enjoyed your game" - Centagon

"Played a little single player by myself and enjoyed a challenging defeat. Thanks for creating such a great game! I can't wait to see it grow even more" - Funkbass87

Gameplay Overview
Each player has an army of dwarves and catapults. There are 3 kinds of dwarves, each has a different movement pattern. You can move each of your units once per turn. Catapults are neutral, if you control units next to it, you may shoot the catapult once per turn. You can kill the opponents pieces either by moving onto their tile, or by knocking them over with a cannonball. Players take turns moving and shooting until one team is eliminated, or on some maps, the castle is captured.
