DD March. Turn-Based RPG in combination with 4X and basebuilding

Yes, there are still many mechanics that have not been added, such as pushing and throwing, but the game has already changed significantly. And we begin to actively show it and receive responses.

Mark April 4th on your calendars! It’s “Turn-Based Thursday Fest”! We are happy to announce that we are taking part in this festival and will probably be streaming our game during the festival. Don’t miss it – the start is scheduled for Thursday April 4th. The festival will be available via the link on Steam.

An important point – since we are entering a period when the game will already be available (demo version on Steam), we want to slightly change the format of our diaries and now each individual diary will be a showcase of one specific game mechanic, which will be described in more detail. Plus we will describe its influence on the gameplay and interaction with other important elements of the game.

We wanted to end this format of diaries on a positive note and show in large strokes what we managed to do this month:

  1. We finished the visuals of the map – we tightened up the skybox, worked on the visual effects of the clouds and generally dimmed the brightness of the colors, especially purple.

  2. We completed the reinforcements during the battle. Now, when dropping an automaton, the player not only chooses a specific location, but will also deal damage to the enemy if he drops it from the air right next to the enemy.

  3. A lot of work has been done to refine the abilities of all units, as well as visual effects for them. It was truly a difficult task, but now they work correctly and look presentable.

  4. We worked on optimization. Now the demo does not freeze and does not have a large drop in FPS on computers with medium specs. Yes, there is still some work to be done, but the result is already good.

  5. The balance has been completely reworked and tested many times. A huge amount of work, which is absolutely necessary for a turn-based game like ours.
