Timbertales leaves early access - We are live! :)

Hey

I am proud to announce that Timbertales is now full released, yeah!

There are some major changes included in this step – I will describe them in detail below, but first of all: I want to thank everybody, who supported Timbertales by feedback, questions or even money. I am very happy that I was able to develop Timbertales this far and this was only possible, because of your kindness and support. Thank you!

Lets get on to the changes for the release version:

Steam Achievements
I think I don't have to tell you much here. I added 30 achievements with their own pictures and challenges. There are also some hidden achievements, so good luck achieving them all!

Improvements to the game
I increased the game speed a bit, so everything should feel a bit more fast paced. The attack animations should close the distance to your opponent and making the combat feeling more enjoyable. I spend also a lot of time into bug fixing, which includes problems with fullscreen mode, crashes in missions or wrong counting map objectives.

Idle Animations
All units should feel more alive by now. I added new idle animations for every unit to make the game more lively.

Sound improvements
There were a lot of sound effects, which were annoying or not matching at all. I made a lot of changes to the sound effects and I hope you like them.

Of course there were also a lot of code changes and cleanup overall. I wish you a lot of fun while playing Timbertales and feel free to share your thoughts!

Future of Timbertales
I want to be open and share some insights with you. Unfortunately Timbertales didn't sale very well and I didn't received so much feedback I would have hoped for! Nevertheless there are some fans and I am still willing to invest time into the game. My backlog is full of cool features and updates, but how to say the game needs to pay off a bit first. I don't want to earn a million bugs that said, but I can't invest full time into a game, when I have less than two sales / week.
So summarised if there is good feedback and the game performs quite well in future. I will invest more time :)

“This game has a lot of potential and is very cute and fun. If you're into RPG style titles with adorable realistic animals, this game is for you. Remember, it is in early access, so it will come with some occasional issues, but it's worth it.”

About This Game

Timbertales - A fantasy turn based strategy game combined with an unique nature theme. Fight with the sylvan or vermin for the dominion!

Description

I am an one man army Indie - Developer and proudly present you: Timbertales.
Timbertales is a fantasy turn based hex strategy game. I wanted to create a game, which has the feeling of classical games like Battle Isle, Battle of wesnoth or Jagged Alliance, but with a very unique nature theme and challenging content. In Timbertales you will first have to draft an army before you can start a match. Unlike other turn based strategy games: You will not have to produce units in game. Its more based on a table top strategy game approach, where you have to build up an army with a specific point limit before the match starts. While processing through the game you will be able to unlock more units, which can be used in drafting.
In game we have a classic hex tiled map in an isometric view. You will have to move your units around the map and clear out different map objectives to be victorious. Every attack is handled instantly: You will see the results as fast as possible and you are able to plan your next steps immediately.
Many units provide very special abilities: You have the choice for just normal attacking or using very special abilities, like healing, cursing or heavy attacks.
There will be very unique game modes for solo playing and multiplayer. Let me introduce the features more detailed:

Maps

In challenge and multiplayer mode there will be special maps to play on. These maps provide special optional map objectives. If those objectives are completed different events can happen and will grant you an advantage.

Combat


The combat system is based on the system which is used in "Starcraft". This means we have different unit types and different attack types. The unit types are small, medium and large. The attack types are normal, piercing and breaking. If two types clashes each other the types are used to calculate the critical hit chance for the unit for example if a normal attack type is fighting against any armor type he will always have the standard 10% critical strike hit chance. But if an piercing attack type is fighting vs. a small armor type he will receive a 100% bonus which means he has a critical hit chance of 20%. Critical hits will be displayed with a bigger yellow number while normal hits are shown in white color.
