New Build, Lots 'O Changes and New Summoners on the Docket for Tomorrows Develop with Ross

Hi everyone!

Big update today: Build v0.30.1 is now live on all platforms! In this build, I focused on addressing all of the player feedback we've received so far during our prerelease including numerous bug fixes, balance changes and added some new cards. For the full details, click here to read the release notes.

Second big update: On tomorrow's episode of Develop with Ross, I'll be making new Summoners - our signature character types that represent the foundation for your creative deck building. These are among the hardest characters to design for that reason. I've got my current concept ideas posted here for you to check out here and I'm looking forward to you joining me on the stream to collaborate on the designs and get them implemented. Added bonus: I aim to deliver these to the game during the stream in what I hope will be our first successful OTA update and maybe play a game or two with you to test them out.

Third thing: Peter and I will be showcasing Summoners Fate at UDEN#21. If you're local in Utah, join us 6PM at Game Tyrant in North Salt Lake. Details here.

UDEN #21 Showcase

Last night Peter and I showcased at UDEN#21 at Game Tyrant in North Salt Lake. Utah is an awesome place to work in the game industry because we've got great community and support from groups like UDEN that hooked us up with a free expo at this amazing venue. Check out some of our highlights.

Meet Clik'Clik, a praying mantis inspired Summoner that we added to our prerelease last week on our Develop with Ross Twitch stream. Insectoids are among our many weird and interesting playable characters in the game. We like weird. Interested in playing the game before it's released?

Develop with Ross Episode 9 - Single Player FIRST LOOK


Hey everyone! We're going live on Twitch now with episode 9. Today, I'll be creating and adding new cards to the game, making a few balance tweaks, and, for the first time, showing off our single player development.

Watch LIVE on Twitch here.

Here's a recap of last week's episode:

We completed 6 new Summoners and successfully added them to the game with an OTA DLC update:
  • Clik'Clik, Impaler
  • Sibylla, Conjurer
  • Rugged Mage
  • D'Orc Slayer, Orc Chief
  • Serpenta Deceiver
  • Kailyn, Valkyrie Mage

...

...

I've updated the card images to reflect the player-suggested changes that I incorporated:
  • D'Orc Slayer's power of 5, reduced to 4, but we gave him the ability to summon a goblin whenever he attacks.
  • We removed Kailyn's gain 1 mana on attack in favor of making her completely disarm her enemy so that they can not attack until end of next turn.

We discussed some possibilities for Dark Elf Sorcerer. Here are some of the notes from my design backlog we can discuss further next time:
  • When you cast a Void or Arcane spell, enemy units get -1/-0 and ally units get +1/+0 until end of turn.
  • Summon Spiders when injured or after attacking
  • Could have some abilities that allow merging of spiders and dark elves to create mutations
  • Support: Sacrifice a spider to gain 1 mana.

Here are possible Warlock abilities:
  • When Chaos spell is cast, gain +1/+1
  • When Chaos spell is cast, Dreadnoughts get +1/+1 until end of turn.
  • Gain 1 mana when attacking (from Kaiyln's previous possible ability)

Here are possible Botanical Sage abilities:
  • Ally plants get +0/+3
  • Support: Summon Brambles next to an ally.
  • Inflict Poison

Check out the other Summoner cards here.

NEW DLC NOW LIVE (v0.31.3)

Greetings everyone!

Today I did not 1, but 2 developer streams! Well, I had to because I left my first attempt on a cliffhanger, and I really wanted to deliver some new cards to our prerelease players today. That being said, new DLC is now LIVE (v0.31.3) - just boot up the game and you'll discover some new cards waiting for you including:

Dark Elf Sorcerer (New Summoner) <- A necromancer that can drain life and heal allies
Antarus, Battle Mage (New Summoner) <- He can make all damage spells cause knockback!
Your Soul Is Mine <- A pre-emptive necromancy spell
Celestial Barrier <- Equipment that lets you block magical projectiles, matrix style!

Plus a whole bunch of balance changes, read details here.

....

The episode recordings are up on our YouTube channel, or just watch below!

Single Player Update

Wanted to share a concept I'm exploring for our single player everchanging adventures - the dungeon minimap! Initially, I'd considered linear-only dungeons, but I'm seeing the potential for a lot of added value being able to explore a dungeon room-by-room, particularly when coupled with calculated decisions to avoid major threats and find alternative paths to achieving an objective.



We like weird.
We've also been exploring new ways to help get attention on our on-going prerelease efforts. Kelly and I came up with this concept of "We like weird" and have been exploring ways to showcase how the characters and mechanics you encounter in Summoners Fate will be unique and stand-out from other games. Here's our latest creation, what do you think?
