Hi everyone!

It’s been awhile since we last updated and as usual the dwarves have been up to a lot of fun, work and no good! ;) Here’s a quick overview of some of the things we’ve been doing since last time.

1. Distributors first impressions
2. New Environment Graphics
3. New Player Armors
4. Story, Lore and Voices
5. Danish Game Developer of the year 2013 @ Spilprisen

1. Distributors first impressions
We contacted a major distributor (sadly we cannot yet reveal who) who gave us some feedback on FORCED. As expected they of course had some critique and areas they would like to see improved.
The main points of critique FORCED received are depth and polish.
We have taken this close to heart and as the next three headlines show, these are areas we’ve been working on over these last couple of weeks and will continue to do so for the following couple of weeks as well.

2. New Environment Graphics
We’ve long wanted to take a second look at chamber 1 and we were not slow to use the aforementioned feedback as an excuse to do just that. Thus we’re in the middle of updating and polishing the entire environment graphics of chamber 1. In an attempt to streamline our graphical imprint a bit more, we’ve decided to let chamber one reflect the old roman culture a lot more, though still with our own spin to it.

3. New Player Armors
Another part of our quest to meet the request for more depth is player progression. We’re not quite there yet, but the result will be the ability for players to acquire a bit of armor whenever they succeed in the most dangerous trials. It will be a basic progression system, that will make you look and feel more powerful as you complete the trials throughout the game. We’re still working hard on these and will soon be ready to present the first of the new armor sets.

4. Story, Lore and Voices
We'd always known we would be adding some story to FORCED, but with the feedback we received we decided to kick it up a notch so it wouldn't feel like a tacked on feature. Therefore we've had our guys in Sweden working on voicing the entire cast of FORCED (discounting our silent heroes of course). This will help greatly to add so much personality to all the characters of FORCED!

5. Danish Game Developer of the year 2013 @ SpilPrisen
As some of you may already know BetaDwarf was fortunate enough to be awarded Best Danish Game Developer 2013 by the new danish award SpilPrisen (roughly translates to The Game Awards) last month. We are extremely proud of this honor and would like to give a HUGE shout out to all of our wonderful supporters and kickstarters, without you guys this would literally not be possible! :)

      Have you considered distributing keys through the Humble store? I love their service plus I have backed MANY kickstarter games and it helps me keep track of them all better.
