What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“When we decided to make Garrison: Archangel, we drew on our love for giant robots, mecha and anime to make the game of our dreams. When we released our free demo and got greenlit, we soon learned that there were others like us who loved the same things and saw in this game the potential we sought.
Early Access is our way to get those players to help us make Garrison: Archangel a reality. We want to make that fast-paced, competitive, customizable anime-style mecha game you can play with your friends - online or on your couch. Let's make this dream game together!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are looking at at least 8 months more development time, but this could take longer or shorter depending on how the feedback we receive from the community shapes our own direction of the game.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of the game will have more game modes beyond the competitive duel and elimination matches, such as survival, horde mode and death tickets. We also plan to add more sets of weapons and equipment, more arenas and even more customization options such as patterns and decals.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“Garrison: Archangel is still a work in progress, but the core gameplay of combat and customization is playable, and in fact, has already seen competitive play. The game will have more than 80 parts and equipment to mix and match, all of which can be colored freely with our extensive color customization feature. We also have more than a dozen other customization options from poses and taunts. We have 4 different arenas to fight in. The game has network and couch play of up to 4 players as well as practice modes against the AI and single-player arcade.
However, as we add more parts, equipment, weapons and features, issues will definitely arise. Feedback and continued development will be absolutely necessary to get this game completed!”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“We plan on having a set price throughout Early Access, and raise the price when the full game comes out.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“Ever since our Steam Greenlight and free demo period, we've been close to our communities on discord and our various social media pages, receiving feedback, bug reports, and suggestions from our players. Our free demos had received continuous updates in the past year, fueled by this dialogue between us and our playerbase. This bond won't change - and we hope to grow our community to make Garrison: Archangel the best game we can!”

ARCHANGEL ANNOUNCEMENTS OCTOBER 2018

Welcome to our fifth issue of Archangel Announcements.

_________________________________________________

New Feature : Centralized Chat System (and Worldwide Filter changes)

We decided to add a new feature we're testing out in the preview builds at the moment, called a centralized chat box you can access in the upper left field of the game.

The purpose for this centralized chatbox is to track other players currently in the game and to more easily arrange for multiplayer games without relying on external applications like Discord.

In addition to this, we set the multiplayer's default filters to worldwide so that all players can find any lobby set up across the world. We hope more of our players find each other and play more games.

We intend to update the public build by October 19, Friday, to include this new feature (as well as other bug fixes and mechanics updates).


General Bug Fixing, Game Mechanics and Netcode Development Continues

Since our in-game chatbox and recent changes have made multiplayer games much more accessible (at least among players in preview), we've received a lot more feedback. For this reason, we are currently revisiting netcode developments and improvements.

As always, our discord and steam discussion forums are open to receive comments and bug reports. Bug fixes and small mechanics updates come frequently through the preview branch, and go into public once issues have been stabilized.

You can learn how to opt into the preview branch here.



Singleplayer Development : Bodyframe Upgrades

In our planned singleplayer campaign mode, players will be given the option to upgrade their weapons and parts, allowing them to go above and beyond the current stat limitations of the game.

After a set amount of upgrades, body parts and weapons will receive visual updates. Some of these frames, at least cosmetically, were revealed in the First Wednesday Warzone of October.

As stated in the video, the highest base stat attainable from body parts will be 10000 (from the current 7000).

More of these single-player features will be coming soon!



CONTEST : ARCHANGEL ARMS CONCEPT CONTEST 2018

The AACC 2018 has entered its voting phase and as of this writing, is on its mid-point! Vote for the community-submitted weapon ideas you wish to see added into the game!

Cast your votes here!. ( goo. gl/forms/EtIFsgDURLBxNft33 )

Voting ends October 29th.



COMMUNITY CONTEST : SPOOKTOBER SKIRMISH

We are also pleased to announce a contest run by one of our community members and longtime supporters, Maple / Robofights!

The Spooktober Skirmish has a similar format to a contest we've run before early access, known as Mecha Melee! Players just have to submit their Archangel SaveData, and Robofights will pit these mechs against each other using the AI of the game!

Winners can snag gift cards, artwork from community artists, and get champion tags on the official Discord channel!

Check out the instructions in this video on the Robofights channel. Submissions close at October 20th!

Please do subscribe to the channel if you like watching Garrison: Archangel AI fights!



COSMIC CLASH S02E04

Once again, for all you Arena Jockeys in the Manila area, Cosmic Clash will be held at Cosmic Gorgons Bar and Lounge at the Cubao Expo Center this coming Saturday, October 20th!

The traditional Cosmic Clash Champion Mugs will once again be up for grabs, in split-screen duels among Archangel pilots!

More details/signup sheet here! ( goo. gl/forms/NKiJhv6mNfKLw94l1 )
