DevBlog 135 / Storytelling Decals

Hi!

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:

Storytelling Decals!

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!

DevBlog 132 / Vallis Sanctum decoratus est

Hello readers!

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!

Hello readers!

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:

DevBlog 129 / Switch port and Wadi polish

Hi!

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 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!

DevBlog 128 / Everything old is new again!

Hello everyone!

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!

DevBlog 127 / Polishing the Rift

Hello everyone!

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!

Improved landscapes!

That’ll be all for this week, thank you for checking out this devblog post and please stay tuned for more next Friday!

DevBlog 124 / Cast your votes!



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:

Fallen ancient

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!

DevBlog 122 / Not the bees!

Hi everyone!

Today the post is a simple update about some of the progress we’ve made regarding a few enemies, armor sets and overall detailing.

A lot of polishing is being done on the animation side, our animator is doing a bunch of small tweaks and additions so the game feels and looks a lot more fluid.

We have a new temporary addition to the team – the wiz Paulo Pinho is helping us on the VFX side, and the results speak for themselves, but we’ll have to share that in the next post!

Our sound designer has also joined us in the office for some, so the sound/music additions will be faster and better implemented.

On a different note, a new enemy is born – this giant Stinger will haunt you wherever you go! Remember, it can fly… It features a binaural sound when it gets close, for an extra level of creepiness.

Sometimes they attack in swarms!

One of the aspects we wanted to improve on for a long time was the armor set variety. In order to give more options of apparel to the player we are introducing 3 new sets, each tied to a certain location of the game and respective lore. One of these is already in-game, as you can see below. Of course, equipping all the pieces of any set will grant the player bonuses, so keep an eye out and find them all!

The Tradesman armor-set.

DevBlog 120 / They are Legion!

Hello!

We have made quite some progress this week, both in terms of polish and the addition of new content!

The enemy list has grown with the addition of a new flying creature, that is still being worked on but we’ll definitely share some screenshots in an upcoming blog post, together with new variations for the last remnants of the Ancestor legion, that will be some of the toughest foes that you will encounter throughout the land. Here’s one of them for your viewing pleasure:

You’ve come to the wrong neighborhood!

We’ve also started to work on the visual effects, as most of the ones we’ve been using are simply placeholders, and we have several new ones planned! Animations for both the main character and some enemies are being tweaked and polished, and we’re sharing an example with you:

Old Ancient Soldier animation!

New Ancient Soldier animation!

Finally, there was a major effort in cleaning up the code, while also adding a debug menu with controller support for the consoles, in order to help with development and QA for them.

Regarding the gamescom event, our team member that was present to showcase the game had a blast but, unfortunately, he still hasn’t arrived due to a flight delay, so we’ll have to share all the juicy details of the event next week!

Thank you for reading, have a nice weekend!
