Version 0.18 - Hydra, Hellhound and More

Posted by Julian Gollop (Creator)

A new version of the game is now available with some great additions - Hydra, Hellhound, animations, playback mode and more. But let's start with a couple of pics.

Forest environment concept

The arenas in Chaos Reborn are based on environment types. We will shortly start work on the forest environment, where the arena will be suspended above a lush canopy of forest.

Elephant

The elephant is modelled and in the game, with a simple idle animation. Here is a render from the Unity game engine:

Version 0.18

There are some interesting changes and additions for this version, so here is a reasonably comprehensive list:

  • Hydra: A mighty beast has been added to the game! The Hydra's special ability is that it can attack every single adjacent enemy with one attack action. It also has a high agility, making disengagement from its writhing snake-like heads very difficult.
  • Hellhound: An undead, three headed beast with a paralysing stare. Awesome creature!
  • Animations: The animation system is in, and the unicorn and Manticore have a reasonably full set of animations. If you see them next to each other you will notice them taunting and evading.
  • Dwarf: This pitifully neglected creature has been given some new abilities. An attack on a wizard will shatter an item of equipment if the wizard isn't killed. What's more, he has a limited ranged attack where he can throw his hammer.
  • Elephant: The elephant now has the 'bulldoze' ability, which gives it a strength 12 attack against tangle vines, shadow trees and gooey blobs.
  • Creature info screen: We have started
  • Gooey Blob: When cast it will automatically spread to adjacent creatures. It no longer attacks on the turn it is cast.
  • Magic Bow: Reduced range and attack by 1, reduced casting chance to 60% and it does not increase range with subsequent casting.
  • Playback mode: You can now review the game using video style controls.

T-shirts

The Chaos Reborn T-shirts have been dispatched. Some of you have already received them, but international deliveries may take a while longer.

      Same here Daniel. I'm sure it'll be much easier upon release and with a async game mode. Also, sign up for the tournaments. That's probably your best bet.

      This looks wonderful, but I can't seem to find any games - to play or to spectate!

      It's great, but I still feel that the Gooey Blob is insanely overpowered. I hate comparing it to the original as the game is so very different, but you could cut through them relatively easily. I was just playing someone that massively outnumbered me but their (decent) creatures were barely making a dent.

      Sounds like good progress! Thanks for the update.
