Notifications, losing and (coincidentally) a giant skeleton.

Posted by on

Apart from 0.5.1 update, this week I\'ve been working on some more improvements and tackled losing. I\'ve come up with the idea of "City reputation" which drops if your people die or emigrate, and if it drops to a zero - you lose. Not sure if it is exactly what we need, but we\'ll see. Problem with losing is that "Game over" screen should be shown at the right moment - before you understand that it is easier to just start over. It is tricky to find this moment in the game like Hearthlands.

Also I added a bunch of notifications to make sure you don\'t miss something important, like the shortage of food or available research. I should play the game for a few hours now to make sure notifications appear at the right moments and aren\'t annoying.


And here\'s the skeleton boss! Can\'t wait to be besieged by an army of skeletons led by this guy.
