Another week has gone past almost without notice, as we’ve been focused on QA, polishing and balancing of the game.
We do miss sharing all sorts of new content, be it concept art, new items or even mechanics, but we all know that the final stretch is a necessary grind to ensure that we can deliver the best experience to everyone, leaving us little time for anything else.
The whole team is eager to cross the finish line and see the result of our passion being experienced by you, and that time is drawing closer and closer each day.
We’re also bringing you a gorgeous scene, featuring improved visual effects together with additional hand placed details:
A Waterfall in the Wadi.
Thank you for reading, enjoy the weekend!
Happy New Year to you, fellow readers!
This year is going to be truly important for the Decay of Logos team since, as you’re probably already aware, the game will be launched on all major platforms.
We’re on the final stretch of the QA, which feels great as it has helped us find all sorts of pesky issues that have been eluding us throughout our in-house testing sessions, most of which have already been addressed by our man of digital letters.
Although we don’t have much to share for this week, we can tell you that the new trees shown in the previous post are fully integrated into the game, and we’ve also continued improving upon our VFX as well!
Here’s two screenshots of said trees in the context of the game, for your viewing pleasure:
Thank you as always for taking the time to read our DevBlog, have an awesome weekend!
Today we’re sharing a sneak peek at two exquisite weapons that have recently joined the armory, behold:
A Knuckle set and a Mace.
To the left, we have a Knuckle set that is fashioned out of a certain foe that we’ve previously introduced, can you guess which?
To the right, our latest addition to the unique items that you can find hidden within the world of Decay of Logos, Lucerna!
What makes it unique, you might ask? This weapon has a special behavior that is revealed as soon as danger draws closer:
A beacon of light!
We’ve also continued with the usual polishing, optimization, QA and bug fixing, of course!
And that’s all for this week, thank you for reading, we hope that you all have a great weekend!
Another week goes by, bringing further beautification and polish, together with more QA and fixing!
As promised in the last post, we’re sharing another example on how the decals can make a huge difference, allowing our beautification artist to experiment on the fly with different feels for certain areas:
The original room is on the left, unspoiled by the decals that are introduced on the right, covering the floor and the edges of the walls.
A whole different message is transmitted to those who observe their surroundings, allowing for that extra layer of storytelling that we love!
That’s all for this week, we have something different in store for you all next friday so stay tuned!
Another week of QA goodness and bug slaying, a real massacre of all of those pesky issues that we would absolutely hate to let you all deal with. In all due honesty, these things do take a great deal of time and effort, and we’re happy that we have the time and resources to undergo a thorough testing and polishing phase!
As usual, we’re sharing some images of the progress made in the embellishment process that has been keeping our artists busy with hand placed details and final touches. We bring you one of the Ancestral sites that we’re sure everyone will love to explore, the Vallis Sanctum:
Catchy name, huh?
It’s also one of our largest dungeons!
That’s it for this week’s blog post, thank you for reading!
Have a great weekend!
With the ongoing external QA, which is going pretty well since you’re asking, we’ve been tackling the the issues all around the clock.
The art team, however, has channeled their artsy magicae to polish the skybox, which is what we’re bringing out today for your viewing pleasure, so please enjoy the following screenshots:
Politely asking the Brute to stand aside to take this sky picture!
Communing with nature while taking another sky picture!
We hope that you’ve enjoyed the content we had to share today, rest assured that we’ll have more goodies to share further down the road, so stay tuned.
Have a great weekend!
Another quick update for this week’s tasks!
In short, we’re continuing to pool our efforts into the tasks that we’ve talked about in the last posts, meaning the ports and the embellishment of all areas.
Here’s a screenshot of the Wadi of the Howling Rift, which is also getting an overhaul on its population in order to provide a level of challenge that matches its imposing looks:
The Wadi of the Howling Rift.
The vegetation, props and even architecture is being tweaked throughout these areas, and its pretty fun to see how some of the team members that have been doing runs in order to help with the balancing and QA react to the changes that are being implemented, or fall prey to unexpected enemies or traps!
Here’s one last treat, the image speaks for itself:
Development build of the Switch port.
That’s all for this week, stay tuned for the next update and have a great weekend!
The team is currently really busy finishing up some major tasks, so the post this week is gonna be just a quick update!
We are all adding those finishing touches to every aspect of the game that will surely bring the whole thing together and really make it shine. Working on porting the game to consoles is also very time-consuming, and that’s where we’re at.
Here’s a little teaser of one of the early locations, now reworked, that you’ll get to explore!
An imposing statue guards these lands.
This week, our biggest focus on the technical side of things was working on the console ports, while also continuing to optimize the project and its code. We want to make sure that all platforms provide the best experience possible, since we’re big fans of them all!
On the artistic side, we’ve done a good amount of polishing over the landscape, especially in the Howling Rift, hence the title, and continued to polish work on the audio, visual effects and animations.
We also have a couple of shots of the aforementioned area to share, but be mindful that they are still work in progress:
I swear she was here just a minute ago!
That’ll be all for this week, thank you for checking out this devblog post and please stay tuned for more next Friday!
Hello dear readers!
Hope you all had a good week! First and foremost, we’d like to remind you that voting for the Shield Contest is still going, so make sure to cast your vote on your favourite entries HERE!
We’ve had a total of 26 entries, which got us all very excited, and each design is pretty unique, with very different and unique sources of inspiration. Some of them even have their own lore!
Regarding our progress, we’ve been crafting some additional weapons and armor sets, and we’re up to a point where we believe that we have more than enough variety to cater to different play styles and builds. Take a look at some of the new additions below:
What have we here?
A few new props were added and placed throughout the land, together with some additional details here and there for enhanced environmental storytelling, which has been one of our concerns since the earliest stages of the game and its world design. Here’s a sneak peek:
Also, in preparation for the EGX Berlin, we’ve done a very thorough QA, polish and balance pass, which will continue next week. You’re all invited to play Decay of Logos at the event, you can find us at the Thunderful booth, so be sure to pay us a visit ( or several! ) if you’re able to attend, which will be happening from 28/09 to 30/09!
Hope you’ve enjoyed the update, see you next Friday!
