ValeGuard Update #5.2

Hello everyone. I just wanted to announce the small patch that went out today. I took some time to fix a few Unity related issues as well as some in-game bugs.
This update also eases up the "ValeGuard" difficulty level. I'll be moving back onto new features after Thanksgiving, and I welcome any suggestions or ideas.

- Ryan

P.S: I've set up streaming on Steam so I'll be playing the game from time to time on the store page or here: ValeGuard Dev Stream

“ValeGuard has an attractive and compelling gameplay loop”

“[EARLY ACCESS] A turn-based city builder with real-time strategic combat. Build up your city during the day and defend with heroes, soldiers and towers at night. Precedural lands, heavily recommended.”
FallenShogun Gaming

“ValeGuard really hits the sweet spot with just enough complexity to keep the game interesting, without being too much.”

About This Game

ValeGuard is an RTS, Town-Management hybrid that combines Turn-Based City-Building with Real-Time Combat. Each day you construct your defenses, train troops, and prepare for attack. When enemies come in the night, you defend with towers, troops, and heroes with powerful abilities! Save as many towns as you can, while you travel through the Vale. Choose wisely, because each town unlocks unique assets and a hero to aid in future battles. Defeat is not the end in Valeguard. Each play you can unlock more heroes and discover new strategies to achieve victory!

Build in the day and defend at night

The quiet hamlets of the Vale stand defenseless. As the ValeGuard you act as mayor, merchant, and general for each village. Balance your workforce to provide food, housing, troops, and fortifications. When enemies threaten your villages, take on the role of commander with pause-able, real-time combat.

Gather resources, craft weapons, and train troops

Juggling resources is key to success in ValeGuard. Wood and iron are required to craft weapons. These weapons are then used to create troops or towers.

Trade with merchants and buy items on the black market

Gold is the most valuable of all resources and cannot be mined. Trade wisely and spend your gold carefully to ensure you have the funds you need.

Random events and levels make each play unique

Pumpkin patches, graveyards, wizard towers, and other town features can alter the way a town is managed and defended. Navigating nightly events can mean avoiding a deadly fight, or acquiring a magical item. Sometimes risk pays off while other times caution is wisest.

Hop from town to town as you travel across the map of the Vale

Each town provides a new hero, technology, and bump to starting resources. Not all villages will survive the war and when a town is destroyed, these perks are lost with it. Choose each town carefully to balance your party and defensive strategy for the long-term.

Build walls, towers, and traps to defend your village

There are many ways to defend a village in ValeGuard. Adapt, and uses what defenses are available to best support your heroes.

Unlock new heroes through special events and quests

Start the game with a single hero class and unlock rare and powerful heroes as you play. With more hero options you can begin to build a more balanced and powerful party.

Upgrade Units With Armor and Mounts

Towers are dependable and simpler to build but are static and don't gain experience. Troops are more demanding but can be moved to defend where needed. Troops can also be upgraded with armor, mounts, and gain levels with experience.

Confront the dark generals in a final epic battle

The final confrontation is difficult and success depends on a successful campaign. All your choices of tech, upgrades, heroes, and more will determine if you can hold out in the final battle.
