Stretch Goal #7 unlocked! New Gameplay Video & Entropic skill focus
Well, that was fast... we've unlocked yet another funding-based stretch goal! Your continued support and feedback never ceases to blow me away. Let's take a look at what it is:
Stretch Goal: Origins of Endogenesis
All copies of Endogenesis will now come with a lore novella that also serves as an art book! The novella is written by Ryan Mennen and Sathya Seth, and there'll be special behind-the-scenes images that show the process of creating the art in Endogenesis.
Guided Gameplay Video by Justsaying
The folks over at Justsaying.asia have made a guided gameplay video! They play a short 3 player game with a 2 Prism victory condition that lasts around 25 minutes. If you wanna see Endogenesis in action with detailed explanations of what's going on, this video's one of the best ways to do so.
And now, on to our next Skill Category Focus...
Skill Category Focus: Entropic
"Cyclical yet sporadic, forged and undone by its own energy, both exo and endothermic, impossible for living yet it bore life in the form of near sentient energy that could be labelled nothing less than entropic." - Description of the Entropic plane, from the Origins of Endogenesis
Themed on sheer destruction above all else, Entropic Skills boast the highest amounts of damage in the game, but also the highest Energy costs. Ideal for players who enjoy going on a killing spree against other players, and those who subscribe to the mentality of offense being the best defence. The Entropic Skill Category has no Reaction Skills at all!
- Strongest direct offensive abilities in the game, both in single and multi-target damage.
- Especially adept at taking down other players.
- Able to stun enemies, preventing them from using Reaction abilities.
- Extremely high Energy consumption
- No defensive options means you'll likely die a lot!
Shadow Flare + Dark Veil + Annihilate: The ultimate in single player annihilation. Start by using Shadow Flare on a player. If they use a Reaction Skill, respond by using Dark Veil, cancelling the Reaction and allowing Shadow Flare to deal bonus damage. Then finish them off by using Annihilate, a simple yet deadly skill that deals a whopping 9 damage to players when fully upgraded!
Shock + Mindblast + Forbidden Curse: Use Shock to disable the Reaction skills of all enemies, then soften them up with Mindblast which deals heavy multi-target damage. Finally, use Forbidden Curse and watch as your enemies fall one by one, refilling your hand with cards (and therefore energy) as you do so!
That's it for the Entropic Skill Category! We'll be looking at the Mythic category for the next update, so stay tuned!
