Working on free open source cross platform games.
Computer nerd, graphic artist, game developer, coder, open source advocate.
If you're on reddit, could use a little help getting more attention to the project in order to hopefully get more coders involved so that we can release a fixed new version already ^^
So please vote up the post over here: Reddit.com
Those stars seem a little too big for the infantry.
Cool stuff, but everything is too dark with very similar colors. Needs more contrast.
The old stuff stands out way better, because it has better contrast.
You need some lighter parts and some darker parts in a model and not to bloat everything up with tiny details that don't read very well.
Most of the stuff is just too dark, a lot of dark grey next to black and blueish tones, so the overall thing doesn't stand out very well, being blurry.
Pretty cool! :)
Usually artists include regular humans in order to give you a sense of scale.
They probably have quite a few stories to tell, well, the ones still alive :D
Keep up the good work!
We now have a mailing list, I'm trying to populate the list to at least 50 subscribers before sending the first update, I invite you to sign up from this widget Ancientbeast.com
Heya! Now you can subscribe to our new mailing list from here Ancientbeast.com - just enter your email address in that field!
This looks cool :)
(Late reply) Thanks! Hopefully gameplay will get in good shape this year, lots of updates coming ^^
Hehe, love the winning tweet, definitely applies to me as well regarding my game project here > Ancient Beast on Indiedb.com
Sorry for late reply, I don't get an email notification hmm. Big refactoring going on along with engine update, will write more details on the website soon in the first development log.
Looks amazing! :)
Useful article :)
The project is now on reddit! Join and make some noise yo!
Pretty cool screenie :)
Looks pretty amazing!
Cool looking aliens :D
Cool stuff! Have you guys also considered using Spriter by any chance?
Seems pretty cool and cheaper overall compared to Spline Brashmonkey.com
Pretty cool project I must say, gonna keep an eye on it :)
I'm doing one along the same lines, but focusing more on the turn based strategy aspect instead of TCG and bumping into the same key learnings and to-do items overall. MLW is one of the most promising alternatives.
The project is now listed on Steam Projects (GreenLight), any support appreciated! Steamcommunity.com
Seems like a pretty cool project! I hope it gets made ^^
Big thanks! I haven't actually played HoMM2, but I'm a big HoMM3 fan. I do think HoMM2 has awesome graphical style, Ancient Beast will hopefully have a pixel sprite art pack as well eventually to resemble the old-school style even more for those who prefer that better.
The game is becoming more and more playable and even if it doesn't have online multiplayer for now being just hotseat, it can be played just fine using desktop sharing software such as Teamviewer.com or maybe even Samesurf.com
I want to gather more people who I can play Ancient Beast with and figure out more bugs and issues.
Also I want to record a gameplay video for 0.2 against a player that's rather challenging.
If you're interested in playing against me or maybe others, feel free to reply with your skype username in this thread.
