Perceptive Podcast: A Discussion on Arcen Games
Chris Park discusses A Valley Without Wind 1 & 2 and touches on Shattered Haven as well in this week's Perceptive Podcast: A Discussion on Arcen Games.
Valley 2 Beta .710 "More Monsters At Last" Released!
This one has a few tweaks and bugfixes, but mainly it's focused on adding more monsters. Prior to this release we had 13 of the target 114ish monsters implemented. Now we've added 5 more.
The effect that this has on the game in terms of the feeling of variety as you explore around is pretty substantial, but that's only going to get compounded as we add more and more monsters. We're going to try to make huge strides on the monsters this month, so there's going to be a lot of releases like this with lots of monsters. Exciting times!
Valley 2 Beta .709 "Water And Wind" Released!
This one is mostly smaller improvements to the game, but this sort of thing adds up. We're not going to be focusing on this sort of smaller polish to the exclusion of new content (like enemies and so forth) for very much longer, but we had a backlog after the holiday break and are trying to clear that out reasonably well.
It's nice to be fully getting back into the swing of things after the holiday break, I have to say. Still, with three projects going on at the moment in the studio, I'm being pulled a lot of directions for getting everyone ramped back up. I would have wanted to add some new enemies in this release, but I just didn't have time. I expect to have time for a lot of that sort of thing next week, which is exciting for me.
More to come soon. Enjoy!
