DevBlog 116 / Vines and Warfare

Hello!

Curious title right? Hope you’re having a great friday, we’re back with some freshly baked goodies just for you!

We’ve been working on vines lately, and we’re not talking about those short and funny clips, but the pesky plants that will get in your way until you can find the means to get rid of them for good. Since we’re so considerate, we did add a few ways of doing so, yay for us!

Vine burning down, still work in progress!

Fire is the key here, you can use a weapon buffed with fire, a spell or even your torch if you get it lit. These will be temporarily blocking certain doors or treasure, and if you’re not able to deal with them at that time, you can always return later to explore. Also, do note that the effect shown above is still a work in progress!

Hope it doesn’t have anything inside that melts!

In order to provide more immersion and some visual storytelling, we’ve built ( and then destroyed, mwhahaha! ) some trading carts, used by merchants and plebs who obviously wanted to take their belongings from one place to another.

Such a lousy parking spot!

There was also an overhaul of the Vallis Sanctum puzzle, which is the largest and most complex obstacle you’ll face in the game.
We’ve actually decided to have 2 floors instead of 4, in order to make it more accessible and feel less of a chore in future playthroughs, for those who enjoy the additional challenge of the New Game plus mode.

Lastly, here’s another work in progress animation for the new movesets, which are nearly done and are adding such a better feeling to the combat overall!

Sword uppercut!

See you next weekend, hope you’ve enjoyed our progress!
