Hello again everyone !!
I first want to extend my thanks to the newest backers - we had some very nice donation last week - keep these up !!
Talk to your friends, tell them how great this project looks :) The more money we get, the more content we will add to the game to truly make it the best possible experience!!
Now, regarding development, this has been another very busy week, with TONS of new stuff: scoring system, improved swiping system, new music, new sounds, improved visual feedback, first level playable at night, new animations and much more !!
One new Battle ground has been added: Burning Sands - which is a battleground featuring a desert scenery and sand dunes. Hoping to put some cool special effects in this level, like occasional sand storm.
Another Battle ground is being worked on, Frost Wind Pass, for which I have the assets, but need to put everything together. At this point, this takes us about 2 days, so for next update, I will have screenshots from it.
Many more Hero's animations were also added and tweaked, we're still working on synching these with the enemies properly, but with slow-motion and cinematic camera, it's really looking great!
I had a few people playing the game and took some notes on little things to improve. Generally, the user experience is pretty fun already.
But, we do have quite a bit of time to tune gameplay and make sure that the game is VERY fun for everyone, even for kids (we will just have to turn off blood :)).
And here are 2 screenshots from the new level:
