During your journey through the sanctuary you’ll come across rare A'dr gems that can fuel a mysterious process of transmutation. Legend tells that some of thous crystals can also be infused with a human soul.

Passed week was an intensive one but it was definitely worth it as we've reached the ALFA!


Different developers define "ALPHA" in a bit different way. For us this means you can actually play and finish the entire game. You can visit all the locations and all the mechanic are already in place. This doesn't mean the game is finished thought. There's still a lot of work ahead of us. Most of the locations lack light, particles and ambient animations. ALPHA doesn't mean the programming and designing work is finished as well. From now on though we will be focusing on adjusting and balancing the gameplay. This means soon we might be in need of testers so stay tuned :)

To seek out the Soulblight you will have to face strange and horrifying machine created hundreds years ago in the Age of Wonder. Meet Marauder, Brute and Sentry. Know that there are many other iron monster that will stand in your way...

Sometimes it is better to take your enemy out without the fight... if your honor allows you to do such a thing... Be careful though, the environment might be traitorous. One wrong move and the sound you make will alert your prey.

Second week of alpha test is behind us. So far everything seems to be going well. Besides clearing out few minor bugs we've added new combat action - dash (you can see it on the gif above). It's effectiveness scales down with the amount of armor your character is wearing. This allowed us better differentiate play style of heavily and lightly equipped characters. Thanks to our testers we've been also able to better evaluate the difficulty of our game. It seems our complex mechanics tend to confuse players at the beginning. To smoothen the difficulty curve without lowering it all along we've decided to create a short introductory level. Don't worry you won't have to play it over and over again with every run :) It will launch only when you play the game for the first time.

That's all for this week Folks :)

You should probably let people run the tutorial any time, not just the first run.
So they can decide if they have learned every thing.
Its just one more button on the start screen.

Well by introduction level I don't mean tutorial. It's more like a very easy zone when you can try out everything. Something like asylum location was in Dark Souls 1. Part of the fan of the game is slowly discovering mechanic and then using it to your advantage. I just want the player to have the place where he can try out all the buttons without warring he's gone die instantly if he don't do the right thing :D

Today I would like to show you a parry mechanic. How it works is it throws enemy off balance when you perfectly time your block. Additionally you revive a few seconds of slow motion. You can use it to reposition before striking a deadly blow

To avoid tedious tutorials that prevent you from jumping straight into the game we use top-down perspective of our game and just leave the hints on the floor
