Thanks for the kind words Courtney!
Yes, it certainly is tough getting back into the swing of things. We are preparing a demo for Loaded now so things will only get more interesting from here :D
Thank you for the kind words Leon!
As I mentioned above we have in fact been working on a lot of things the past 6 months ( Loaded related and otherwise).
Being realistic may work for some games but we are looking for fun gameplay so being 100% historically accurate is not what we are going for. Given our loot system we are going to offer a wide variety of equipment and going historically accurate would limit us greatly in that regard.
Once we reveal more information about the story and multiple universes the art syle should make more sense.
At this point we are mainly releasing these weekly updates to slowly push out information and get feedback while building a small community.
Thanks again for taking the time to check out the dev diary!
We have been working on Loaded for roughly 6 months now alongside another project titled EverDead as well as contract work to keep the lights on. EverDead will be nearing release the end of this month so we are excited be able to dedicate more time to Loaded. Concept art has been made in a variety of areas so we plan on releasing more info weekly just to start building a small community around the game.
The armor your mentioning is only a mock up for right now. Loaded will feature a huge amount of loot that ranges from the historically accurate to over the top. We are aware that Vikings never had horned helmet,etc but based off the feedback we have received from fans they prefer us to not go 100% accurate and have some fun with the culture.
Feel free to check out the colored representation of that concept as well: Indiedb.com
It is funny that you mention that series on History Channel. I have been watching it and I look forward to seeing where they go with the series. I believe Vikings & Norse Mythology have been greatly underused in games/tv/movies.
I hope you stick around and check out future updates so you can continue giving us feedback :)
We are aiming to release Loaded on Windows, Mac and Linux thanks to the power of using Unity as our engine of choice!
Agreed, over the past 6 months I feel I have read more about Vikings / Norse Mythology than most do in a lifetime. I am amazed that more games do not focus on it because I find the mythology fascinating :)
thanks for the comment, I am hoping to at least have weekly updates :)
Loaded will be 2D :)
Update 1.2 is nearing completion. Check out our blog tomorrow for more details: ratdoggames.com/blog
