Setting sun is an upcoming Co-op Roguelite Dungeon Crawler. It's set in a universe during the Japanese Edo period where Yokai roam the world freely. The land is in turmoil because the Shogun rules with an iron fist. A couple of mysterious wanderers answer the call to help mankind and try to fight the source of the corruption together.

Patch 0.9: Dungeon V2

News

Ohayooh!

A new update for Setting Sun is ready to be tested.

This update brings lots of dungeon changes, a new enemy, Ronin updates, UI changes and new artworks.

Thanks for trying out the demo, I hope you enjoy it and please let me know your thoughts in the comments or on Discord!

Also, if you like what you see, wishlist Setting Sun on my steam page!

Patch Notes

Dungeon Changes:

- A new spider enemy can now be encountered on your travels

spider 2


- Several obstacles in the dungeon are now destroyable through bombs/ultimate abilities

- Large scenery has been moved outside the rooms walls
All though it was a more “immersive” feeling to have all trees in your view, it was causing several issues. Enemies/interactables were obscured by the trees which could cause you to miss stuff or to not be able to react in time for ranged attacks.

On the other hand I didn’t want to remove the trees cause they fit the zone so good and work together well with the weather effects. So because the outside of the walls were just a black void I decided to fill that space up with trees as the next best thing.

room scenery update


- A couple of new room layouts have been added

pond room 2

pond 3

- Rooms in the dungeon can now rotate
Another way to increase variation was to give all rooms to possibility to be rotated in 90 degree increments.

- The bamboo forest boss has been reworked
Hatamoto has gotten a new ability and his combat logic has been reworked.

- Added a miniboss room that can be encountered
- Some rooms with an interactable have been decreased in size

Ronin changes:

- The ronin's yoko ryu combo attack has been replaced with a new area attack with unique blessings

- The player aiming system has been reworked
Now aiming in the direction of an enemy selects the enemy that the joystick points too the most within a angle of 60 degree from the player.

This allows you to be less accurate when aiming the stick and makes it easier to change targets that are very near to each other.

- Cost for blocking an attack reduced to 25 stamina

Gameplay changes:

- Forcing a game over during your dungeon now has a unique animation

- Some enemies have a global cooldown on their attacks

- Camera has been zoomed out slightly

Minor changes:

- Some new props have been added to the town.

- Nights are less dark

- Big treasure chests can drop small treasure chests

- Added a blessing shrine in the zen garden in town to try out builds for PVP

pvp shrine in town

- Daylight is less orange

- Rewards for clearing a room now spawn in the center of the room

UI Changes:

- The blessing UI has been updated

- Content in the pause menus show a background image

- Interact UI color changed to be more consistent with other labels

Artwork:

- The Bamboo forest has a unique loading screen

Bamboo forest 1

- New concept art for the sorcerer class

soso 2 final

- New sake barrel 3D art

Twenty-nine year old Kazuko, her brother Naoji, and their widowed mother are members of an impoverished aristocratic family living in post-war Tokyo. Kazuko had been married, but divorced and returned to the family household after claiming that she had had an extramarital affair with a painter she admired. The child she had been expecting was stillborn. Naoji, who served with the military in the South Pacific, is declared missing. Kazuko recalls a time when she burned snake eggs, thinking that they were viper eggs. It is revealed that at the time of Kazuko's father's death, there were many snakes present in and around the house, which therefore have become ominous in her and her mother's eyes.

Soon™ (well the demo atleast :p)
Currently I'm finishing the blacksmith and adding some stats to gear.
Then I gotta do some bug testing to make sure it's playable for the public.
Then I believe I can put a build online for everyone.
