Devblog #7. Preparations for the coming update.

Backers exclusive closed alpha is still ongoing. We are grateful for all the feedback that we have received and it has been a great help for us in our goal of improving the game and making it more fun for you! In addition, we recently announced a new minion on our social networks. Let’s have a look at it!

Lost Soul

A lost soul is a spirit that has been trapped on the mortal plane for so long that they have forgotten what they looked like when they were still alive. Necromancy can accelerate this process, forging these souls into agents of lies and deception. Taught to delight in lies and betrayal, these spirits take on the form of masked women that lure mortals to their doom.



Work Progress

At the moment we are actively working on the animations of previously announced characters. Here's an example of one of the Ghoul’s attacks.



Before the closed alpha launch we released an update with a numerous changes, which were described in the previous devblogs but there was one we missed. The enemy Berserker was reworked. They are battle-hardened warriors that would rather die and be turned into an undead than flee from a fight. So bear this in mind and be ready, since they will often enter a state of destructive rampage.

Right now we are preparing the new update based on the feedback received from the closed alpha test.

Insane enemies often attacks allies and sometimes this would cause them to restore sanity to themselves after landing a critical on their friends. This will no longer happen as it didn’t make much sense to us! ;)

Our Shieldmaidens need some attention too. Currently they can apply a redirect to each other or start protecting the same companion over and over. It gets a bit crazy: the shieldmaidens are certainly having a good time but the player is at a loss. At the moment we are looking to address this issue.

Minions are already a bit tired during the closed alpha but soon they will need much more rest to recover Vigor between battles. The dead need sleep too!

Vampires have proven to be good fighters but bosses have been unreasonably vulnerable to these bloodsuckers. The Vampire ability "Bloody Fury" will continue to take off 33% health from ordinary enemies but its damage will be reduced to 20% against bosses.

Iratus will need more time to examine the artifact “Book of Wisdom” and apply the new knowledge in practice. You will need to equip the book, enter a fight and if you win, the two talent points are yours but if you lose, it wasn't meant to be.

We continue to adjust balance and economy. The beginning of your journey may seem easy but the closer you get to the exit the more complicated things will become.

We will be gradually adding images to our events and we hope it will make them more readable and interesting for our players.




New backgrounds will be added with the upcoming update.




These are the main changes to date. We are happy to answer any questions you might have!

Devblog #6. How Barbaric.

Our Kickstarter campaign has finished and what a ride it has been. Now we are almost ready for the backer exclusive closed alpha! Because of this, we have some interesting news regarding this update but let us begin with the new enemy first. It is still under development and will be added later.

Barbarian

These harsh amazons of the north have fostered many grudges with other, more civilized societies. It was not too long ago that they were brazenly plundering both merchant caravans and outlying villages. Eventually however, a clever trader got the idea of simply bribing these savage fighters so they only attack his competitors rather than him. This collusion was eventually uncovered and many others decided to join in on the deal, letting the barbarians turn from brutal raiders into feared guards and mercenaries (that are also easy on the eyes).



Work Process

We decided not to deviate from the original idea of a hardcore game. By introducing an “Easy” mode we had contributed to the loss of challenge, therefore we decided to make “Normal” mode the base and rename it to “Cakewalk”. Furthermore, two other difficulty levels will be launched later. But don’t worry, we will make it possible for you to finish your previous saves in another difficulty mode. Still, there might be some bugs.



In addition, we just launched the much-awaited update that introduces the changes that we have mentioned in our previous devblogs.

It will now be possible to choose the battle squad just before a fight. No more accidental battles with a barely alive squad (yeah, we know that your minions already dead, but you know what we mean), which was supposed to stay back and heal but is now going to die in the first round. This feature will look like this.



We adjusted the disc of talents and now it is a lot easier to upgrade your skills. Earlier, if you wanted to learn “Finger of Death” or ““Phylactery” you had to learn skills that were not directly connected to them first, which was a bad idea. We abandoned this design and now it is it is a lot simpler to get those high level skills!

Enemy squads have also changed. The further you go, the harder it gets to defeat your opponents. Musketeer, one of the strongest enemies, has been moved to the second floor, and together with the local elves they will be a difficult obstacle for any Dark Lord. The second floor has become a true challenge for our players, especially the last couple of fights just before the boss. Don’t say we didn’t warn you ;)

Guards have become more aggressive. If two of his allies die, he will no longer use his stance and will attack constantly instead.

And that is the end of this devblog. Look forward to the launch of the closed alpha! We're open to suggestions and we'll be happy to answer any of your question!

After years of the tedium that comes being dead, Iratus returns to restart his quest of world domination. With bundles of bones, souls and squishy bits, Iratus brings back his army the only way he knows how...
