Welcome to another dev diary for the upcoming rogue-lite game, Achaem! In this update, we're going to introduce an enemy you won't have seen before.
Meet Mentail, a mix up of the word Ailment.
Mentail can currently cast up to four debuffs on the player: Attack Drain, Weaken, Heavy, and Slow.
Let's have a look at them in action!
Attack Drain - this will make your Attack worthless! You do zero damage to all but Mentail, so get rid of it quick!
Weaken - this will reduce your Defence, giving you fewer hearts! Don't worry, once you beat or get out of Mentail's range, they'll return!
Heavy - this will make your arms feel heavy, reducing your Agility, your attack rate will be reduced significantly!
Slow - this will significantly reduce your Locomotion stat, meaning you run and dash much slower.
Please let us know what you think! More updates to come soon.
Please show your support for Achaem over on our Kickstarter!
We want to work with you to make this a fun game!
