The next build coming up is a content build, the primary goal of which is to expand the main dungeon from 20 floors to 23 floors.

A grand total of 21 new demons are being added, and I am happy to announce I've finished the sprite are for all of them. :D If you're a fan of Geminimax's sprite set, don't worry, he's still working on his. :D Just a little busier with college than usual. :)

Without further delay, here's the original sprite set art for the 21 new demons:

Abbey Lubber


Alma


Baba Yaga


Basilisk


Brucha


Buruburu


Couril


Death Worm


Estas


Eye Killer


Flying Head


Friar Rush


Jotunn


Leib-Olmai


Mulassa


Mummy


Ogun


Sankai


Shikome


Virtue


Zaltys



Still a ways to go on release, since there's this much content going in, but it should be an awesome build when it's ready. :D Cheers!

Congrats for creating sprites on your own! They all looks nice, but Baba Yaga is truly awesome :D

Thank you. :D I'm glad Baba Yaga in particular came out well: she's a major figure in mythology, besides also being a Unique in Demon. :D Now that I'm getting to doing content for the last third of the main dungeon, I feel I can start using some of the more major figures in mythology (which is why you see Basilisks and the Jotunn finally joining the roster).

Hey. :) Things have slowed down a bit as I've transitioned from full-time to part-time work on Demon, but slowed down doesn't mean stopped:

In the month or so since the last post, not only have I finished the icon art for the 160+ new abilities coming in the next build...



...but, as of now, 140 or so of them are also implemented. :D

A reasonable question to ask would be why so many? It goes back to Demon's random modifier system: every 1/3 of the game uses a different set of random modifiers that can be applied to demons as they spawn. Each random modifier is also supposed to have level-appropriate abilities it chooses from to give to demons that receive it... thus, since the build is the first build with content from the last 1/3 of the main game, I needed to make the abilities to fill out the new set of modifiers' lists properly.

I also wanted to make SP-denial and physical/elemental hybrid builds more attractive and interesting, so some of the abilities were added to accommodate that as well.

This is one of the last big tasks left before the next release, though there are plenty of smaller ones and a fair bit of testing still to go, but I'll get through it. :D Hoping for a March release at this point. :) Cheers!

The new build is finally released! Here's a link for the PC, Mac, and Linux builds:  https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B-sx_4eW-B5hWnhNZlRPclZLeUU&usp=drive_web

As discussed in my posts above, the new build adds 3 new dungeon floors, 20 new demons, and over 160 new abilities, as well as some AI and balance tweaks that should make the game play better. :)

I'd say more about it.. but... I'm tired. :D You can read most of the important bits in my posts above, or in the change logs included with each build. Cheers, and good luck in the Tower!

Damn, I recently got into the shin megami tensei and I must say that this game is quite similar to it (especially the demon negotiations and fusions).
