Two updates in one row, 0.25 is about "mana tactics", 0.26 is about graphical update. See the details below ! :)

Change log: 0.26

  • New shadows.
  • New anti-aliasing method (TAA).
  • Tree foliage now uses a much less detailed model in the distance, for performance.
  • Tried to improve water simulation performance on some CPUs.
  • Added rim lighting and adjusted land textures.
  • Disabled stylistic post-processing effect by default, you can toggle it with F5.
  • Various rendering optimizations.
  • Sound volume instead of master volume in settings.

Change log: 0.25

  • Updated the tutorial to teach about claiming mana.
  • Fixed items appearing inside menhirs sometimes.

I’m leaving on vacation tomorrow, August 20th. I’ll be back on September 10th.
I won’t write code, but I’ll sketch out some ideas, monsters etc. for both Arcane Worlds and LEVEL UP!
I’m going to get a mobile internet for my tablet there and there should be wifi at the hotel, so I’ll be able to answer your comments and e-mails.

So, the next game updates will be at the end of September.

Hello, big MC fan here. :)
Everything looks cool albeit in a alpha stage.
Is it a bit early to ask how do you envision the final game as regards gameplay, graphics, mod ability?
I mean not precise image but can you tell us what the game will be and will look like?
Thanks.

There'll be a single-player story mode where you explore a web of worlds (non-linear progression), with several global goals (some secret), and several endings. The worlds will be procedurally generated, but will have scripted features and events.

Also, there'll be a PvP multi-player mode and probably a sandbox mode.

As for graphics, it'll have the painterly style you can see now, with big suns/moons and soft shadows.

I'm considering mod support for scripting worlds, but I'm not sure about everything else for now.

Ok, so real time lighting?
By procedurraly generated worlds you do mean that each replay of the game will be different?
What level of graphic quality do you plan to achieve: something like Crysis (kidding here :)), Half Life 2, Magic Carpet 2?
What about physics?
Thanks.

Yes, each game will be different to some extent. All worlds will be different each time, even when they have the same scripted locations or features.

The graphics will be painterly, not realistic. I don't want to add a lot of details, focusing instead on general shapes, colors and motion. I can't thinks of a game to compare it to though, partly because I want the graphic style to look unique.

There are water physics already, and I'll add lava as well. Other than that it's mostly about monsters, so more about AI behavior than rigid body physics. Think swarms of creatures, people building massive structures etc.
