Alpha 6 notes/suggestions

    When you’re in the top left of a room, you can’t see crap because of the items, health etc… annoying

    Yeah, that UI placement will change in the near future. We’ve been holding off really polishing the UI until we knew exactly which elements we’d need.

    Another thing about the UI, is that it needs a ‘cinematic mode’, because now when I’m playing it on desktop I can either see my emails in the background, or i can have the game so freaking big that I have to take my keyboard and sit on the other side of the room to not notice the pixelation.


  • Tiger Hat

    And another thing…!

    You should get to the cemetery before you get to the doors to the sewer and crypt, because you have to go there so often.

    Also, and I’m sorry about this, but my wife glanced over my shoulder and, pointing at the guy standing in front of the door to the crypt said ‘Is that a penis?!?’, and I can sort of see what she means!

    We’ve been exploring a 16:9 format for the game which would increase its size making it less pixelated at fullscreen resolution (hopefully)

    I agree. I think the layout of that room will change at some point.

    Haha, their hair does look kind of odd now that you mention it. I can’t unsee that now!

    It can’t be unseen :( There’s probably an unintended vagina someplace too…

    A bit like all the stuff in the Alien films :S

    While we’re here, the viking’s mustache has a very ‘70s porn star’ look to it - I’m sure I’m not the first person to have said this!

    It’s s’posed to be stubble… we’re gonna design a new main character tho, so he’ll be probably a shopKeeper, FYI!

    NOOOOOOO! You can’t replace Xam!
    At least make him a unlockable character!


  • LDG

    He’ll very likely be a shopkeeper AND a playable character :D

    I think, personally, that Xam has a lot of character. Well, at least in appearance regards.
    But I think what it needs is to act like he has a character, you know?
    I mean, making small things, such as the way he shoots things, reflect his character.


  • LDG

    We like him a lot (he’s our first ever character, dating from Onslaught! Arena) but it is difficult to make him stand out, as he was kind of designed intentionally as a generic warrior-dude.

    I think you’ll dig the lizardman. In my head, he’s a lot of fun. Hopefully I’ll be able to translate that into the game ;)

    I hope so… Xam, I’ll always miss you!

    Hopefully I’ll be able to translate that into the game ;)

    Speaking of which, what do you plan about localization? Because, maybe I could help with that, you know…


  • LDG

    Sure! Into what language(s) are you able to translate?


  • Patron

    Hmmmm… Portuguese?
