DevBlog 86 / Full Steam ahead!

Why hello there!

If you’ve ever heard of Steam, or if you’re currently using it, you’ll probably be ecstatic to know that we’ve included the Steam API into our project!

This allows us to have some sweet features such as Achievements, Cloud Saving and Stat tracking. It also means that our game might or might not be on Steam… take a guess.

Since you’ve probably guessed it right, we can also share that our Steam page will be online in the near future, so stay tuned!

Navigation mesh fix.

What is this? It’s our navigation mesh for the Canyon Puzzle, which had some issues that are now solved through navmesh control, allowing it to be updated as required by this event.

New area accessible by boat!

What is that? The boat we’ve showcased before is nearly fully implemented, and it will allow our hero to go forth and explore a new area which contains a quest item, some additional challenges and loot, of course!

A sanctuary, its buildings currently work-in-progress.

And this is the Village Hub we’ve mentioned before, which is shaping up to become a sanctuary to all, being not only rich in visual storytelling, but also holding its share of secrets! Oh, the houses are still work-in-progress, as such they are enveloped in a black, velvet fabric.

This tool will definitely come in handy!

Our Master Puppeteer, or Animator as some would call him, has implemented his new physics tool that will allow him to breathe even more life into his Puppets! We asked him how he does it, he said “Animation Magic”.

That is all for this week, everyone is thrilled for having the game on Steam and for all the progress that has been made so far, we can’t wait for the upcoming devblogs and to share more Decay of Logos goodies, so thank you for reading!

DevBlog 85 / What’s hiding behind the masks?

Greetings curious ones!

Work on the Canyon Zone is coming to a closure as our craftsmen have been polishing it up while implementing its last mechanics, such as the boat that was revealed in a previous DevBlog, NPC placement for storytelling purposes, as well as a new puzzle that will give access to a very special place. It involves a few masks and… that’s all we’ll share, for now!

I’m masking you a question!

The village hub has been getting some love as well, even though we’re not ready to share a screenshot of its current state, rest assured that it will be an area which will always spark your interest, no matter how many times you revisit it.

We’ve also been working on the last key characters for the game, which we’re not going to spoil for you just yet, maybe sometime in the future as we’d like to keep some of them a mystery at least for the time being!

The Royal Guard, however, keeps insisting on making an appearance on every blog post.

Someone just took a wrong turn!

As usual, we’re happy to indulge, as he’s been getting a few new animations and some further polish as you can see by the screenshot.

That’s all folks, thank you for tuning in and have a pleasant weekend!

DevBlog 84 / A Hole new area to explore!

Hello noble readers!

A Hole new area to explore!

This week we’ve made great progress in populating the Bottom Rift Windmills area, which is nearly fully implemented in regards to both props and logic, as we’ve also prepared it for our area streaming system!

Water we doing here?!

Ambushes and enemy placement throughout this area have been carefully considered as so to provide a different feel and encouraging players to be on their toes at all times.

Canyon ambushes!

The village, our main hub, has passed to an artist blocking phase since we’ve only had the initial designer’s blocking for quite some time already. We’ve drawn inspiration from Dark Souls 1’s Firelink Shrine, Dark Souls 2’s Majula, “Quinta da Regaleira” in Portugal, Sintra, and Everfall from Dragon’s Dogma! We’ll have more to show in a future DevBlog post, and we know you will all love it. * wink *

The Royal Guard continues to learn new moves, preparing himself to become one of the most dangerous and challenging elements of the game’s combat, one many would try to avoid rather than engage.

That is all for this week, we hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s updates, and thank you for tuning in!
