Post news Report content RSS feed The Interface Update (Alpha 0.35 - 0.36)

We've changed the whole UI and added several key features to the combat system.

Posted by on

We just did some quick things to make the interface more simple and more intuitive.

  1. Right click to select/interact with items/objects/animals/etc
  2. Left click to attack (you'll soon be able to attack directionally)
  3. Removed click-to-move

All of these updates are being put in place to fix some potential problems with the new combat system. Here is our proposed plan:

  • Mana gain (faster regen speeds according to your heart level, max 100)
  • Sprint with shift (takes 1 mana per tile)
  • Punch/launch directionally with left click (hold to charge, takes 5 mana)
  • Block (acts like a forcefield) with spacebar(?), is broken when hit with an attack

We're also working on a new logo. Here's a preview:

We also redid the GUI to be more minimal:

What is Dwell?
A cross between creativity, horror, and adventure, Dwell aims to be an ORPG like no other. Settle, create a village, and defend your friends from the horrible creatures who lurk in the forests. You can change the landscape, farm, or hunt in order to survive the conditions-- it's all up to you.

It's actually starting to look really, really good.

I think you guys should remake some of the older sprites, I think now that you guys probably have a bit more experience you could make much better ones. =)

I say that because, I can just tell which ones are the older sprites.

Another thing I would also suggest is adding a bit of random generation to the grass and dirt textures, as well.

And I also like the new name.
