Listening to Early Access Feedback on Spike Rules
Early Access players have expressed confusion on the triggering of spike traps. One concern has to do with knockback. Players expect a character with knockback to cause a unit to take damage when being hit into a spike (makes sense right?) but the issue with the game was that the spikes wouldn't actually trigger damage unless the unit changed position during the knockback (ex: a character was knocked back to a new position that was next to a spike).

The second issue players had was confusion over spikes triggering damage when a character was pushed on a space next to spikes, but not directionally into the spikes. This was happening because the game trigger only checked for "enter position next to spikes". Ross has addressed the feedback by adding calculations to determine the force angle. Now, spikes will only deal damage if the unit is pushed directionally into the spikes.

Here's an older video that contains some of the old ways of spike damage. We'll update with a new one soon!

Dog Day of Summer


It has been quite HOT here in Utah the past week, and so I thought I'd bring our our resident "dog day of summer" - our Hellhound Puppy!  8)

Have a great Friday night, and hopefully you all have some fun gaming tonight!

Ice Bomb/Spike Block/Crystal Golem Combo!
Fun action sequence from a recent game played. This sequence was possible because the Ice Bomb (which currently has fire placeholder art  ;)) spell cast by Zenon the Arch Mage has Knockback, causing Li the Pyromancer to go flying into the spikes:

GameDev Update
From Ross: Rounding out the fixes in version 0.25.1, I'm responding to player feedback regarding the undead's ability to steal life from their opponent. Previously, the Liche King would steal life equal to the damage dealt (in this case three) regardless of the target's remaining life. Players felt it was hard to conceive how the Liche King could steal 3 life from a 1/1 squirrel (point taken) and that it was especially out of context for effect to steal life when damaging armor. I wanted to address these concerns without our undead fans feeling the Liche King was being nerfed. The answer: I made him more powerful (albeit in a different way) while removing the perceived exploits and keeping him within context of his abilities. First, I made it so that life steal can only drain up to the maximum power of the attack or remaining life of the victim (whichever is smaller). Then, to address the armor, I gave him the Pierce ability which has a twofold effect of depleting all armor AND disarming block. So, instead of stealing life from the armor, the Liche King now cuts through it, getting to taste the sweet sweet lifeforce within.

See both changes in action within this video. Also notice that I have added a separate smaller blue number indicator to distinguish damage to armor from damage to life.
