As we explained in previous Devblogs, we have several characters that will be unlocked when the player advances in the history mode.
Today we will talk a about these characters and how to release them.
Character Unlock System:
Each stage (set of 10 phases) will have three unlockable characters, one for each function of the game (attack, defence and support).
To unlock them the player must defeat them or just help on some mission.
As we also said in previous Devblogs, the main villain of the game (Time Controller) have the power to create an army of mini villains through a magic to control the minds of them, as was the case of Dirty Beard and the Seaborg, which will be presented in the Devblog today.
When this is the case, these characters will try to stop the team of heroes to complete their quest, however, by defeating them and releasing them from the mind control, they’ll join the STDP squad to defeat the Time Controller.
Characters such as Lorelei, who will also be presented here, will be friendly with the STDP squad and will also be fighting the Time Controller, just help them on their missions to unlock them to the playable team.
Well, let’s get to meet the first three unlockable characters.
