GameDev Update
Thanks to your diligent bug reporting and feedback, Ross is hard at work on the next build for the Elites, including the iOS build. Our goal is to get that out as soon as possible.

Also, we've had many people inquire about when the build will be released beyond the Elite group. We will be announcing opportunities for additional playtesters; stay tuned!

Get Out and Enjoy Nature...
Here's a recent screenshot from gaming with a Kickstarter Elite gamer:


(Name cropped out at top for privacy)

The Nature deck, with its various animal and plant summons as well as "squirrel hurling" and cards such as Animal Growth:



is becoming a favorite among the Kickstarter Elites. Let me point out some fun things of note in this screenshot.

1. Physical representation of explosion on the board




As you can see here, there had been a previous spell cast that caused an explosion. That explosion not only left behind charred Earth, but also burned up a previously-green-and-healthy tree. To note here, the environment of Summoners Fate battlefields on not just for artistic sake, they serve purposes and are dynamic.

2. Transformed Squirrel



Did you notice this strange beast in the initial screenshot? This is the result of casting the Animal Growth card (shown earlier in the post) on a Squirrel. Now it is equipped with a...beatin' stick!  ;D More importantly, it becomes a formidable 4/4 character (possibly more if other effects are on it) playing on your side.

Feature: Titus, the Gladiator
One character we are hearing a lot about in early access testing is Titus, our Gladiator:


Titus is a unique character in that he has the ability to throw his harpoon at an opponent (which causes Damage), pull the opponent toward him, and then cause further melee damage. Yes, DOUBLE the damage! This attack can be further satisfying by adding opponents adjacent to where the harpooned character  is pulled:


This video features the "move and shoot" control for special characters like the gladiator, and allows you to release to select designated move and then select a new target to attack at range. As I discussed earlier, this ability allows for some interesting team work combos, such as here as  the Gladiator and Giant Skeleton work together to take down a goblin archer.

Can you see why Titus is quickly becoming a favorite?  ;)

Screenshot Saturday
It's always fun when our grinning Air Elemental makes its appearance:

Wondering what that orange aura emanating from our Soul Reaver is? It is the animated physical representation of her Taunt ability. I discuss Taunt and show it in action in a video here.

GameDev Saturday
Game run quality is very important to Ross and me. To get Summoners Fate to run beautifully on PC, Mac, and various mobile devices, Ross must do a lot of optimization and adaptations. He's been working hard on that today and finishing up the technical design to get the iOS build completed.

GameDev Update
Today Ross and our animator Peter discussed some exciting directions for the single-player campaigns. As you know, Summoners Fate will not only be cross-platform but also encompass a rich single-player experience, asynchronous, real-time and on-demand, "desynchronous" cross-platform multiplayer. Of course, you will also play how you want with support for both landscape and portrait modes.

Have some ideas for single-player you'd love to share? We have a board for that;D
