T Minus 12 Days / New Developer Diary / Gameplay update
Hello, friends of Attack Mountain!
Today's update will be a bit on the shorter side, as we're all hard at work on the prototype. We can see a light at the end of the tunnel and we're on point for the gameplay video to be released within the timeline we mentioned previously. Woo!
Developer Diary 3
We're kicking things into a higher gear now, as we can see a hint of the horizon in the distance and we still have a lot of ground to cover! First, we've posted a brand new developer diary over on our tumblr - today's is about armor! How/when do you get it? How do you customize it? Is there an 'Ultimate' set? All of this and more is addressed in today's entry. Attached here you'll find a design for the high-level armor you see Hero wearing in the exclusive wallpaper we unveiled earlier this week. Our hats are off to Dudu because he really outdid himself with this one!
Not enough? We've got another developer diary going up tomorrow about exploration and overall game scope. If you've got questions on how you'll be traversing the world of Time Star and about the overall size of the game, this is the update for you. Come back this time tomorrow evening to check it out!
Also attached are a few more rough animations from a while back when we were working on walk cycles for the skeleton and zombie with Echo Bridge.
Check them out - you'll be seeing less rough in-game versions of them when we unveil the gameplay demo. Speaking of which...
Gameplay Demo Update
As mentioned above, we're right in the thick of it with this prototype, but it's coming along great! It's been amazing seeing the team on this end mobilize and pull together to make this happen. We appreciate the team's incredibly hard work and we're sure they'd be happy to hear words of encouragement from all of you!
Reward Price Reductions
Starting today, we're going to be reducing the prices of the upper tiers every few days as we close in on the final weeks of the campaign. We've taken a couple hundred dollars off of each Producer tier, and the Blacksmith's Favor Package is now only $400! Only $400 to get an amazing weapon in the game named with your help!
We're just getting started with this final content push. We know there's been a bit of a lull lately, but these happen in every campaign. As we end every update:
If you want to see this game become a reality, keep spreading the word! Be sure to follow us on tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook. Retweet, reblog, and share us. Tell your friends and co-workers. Anything you can do to help will be greatly appreciated by all of us over here at AM.
See you tomorrow!
