Hi guys, over the past month we have spent much time working on the Abilities system along with the spellbook and actionbars for use in game. It is now possible to request abilities from the server once more which is a huge step for our new client and opens up the door for pretty much any action to be coded in game. Some beginning clothing was also being worked on by the artists.
We have made another big decision as a team however. We will be creating a smallish children's game for mobile devices. This move serves a few purposes for us:
1- Prove (mainly to ourselves) that we can complete, with high quality, a finished product.
2- Give us confidence and experience as a team.
3- Possibly provide some funding for Factions and hopefully keep the wives happy knowing that our game making adventures are not only a hobby
This game will be a very small, mostly linear Educational math RPG where children will need to answer questions in combat to defeat the monsters. Complete simple puzzles and defeat bosses to advance through the world and strengthen their character. We have given ourselves a fairly strict 3 month time frame to finish this game at which point progress will resume on Factions.
please remember if you have an alpha key to activate it and help us test this side project also.
