Game Development: Christmas Antwolf

Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Christmas Antwolf

Postby jorb » Fri Dec 14, 2018 9:06 pm

We've been developing, and here's what's new.

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added Ant Hill Dungeons. Occasionally when you raid Anthills, they may reveal themselves to be more than they first appeared. Key dropping rooms will continue to spawn enemies indefinitely. The ants are otherwise fairly weak.
  • Added Wolves. Wolves are aggressive pack animals found primarily in mountains, but once under a blue moon...
  • A fair amount of related stuff that you can discover for yourselves.

Credos
-----------------------
  • Herder: You have traveled far and wide, and your herds have grown plentiful in your footsteps. You have become a Herder, always working diligently for the health and bounty of your animals and herds, grazing upon the lush grasslands of the hearth. You spend your days on horseback, tending to the needs of your flocks, keeping beasts of prey away, and following the seasonal migrations in search of greener pastures. The sagas say that the Old Gods once drove a herd of cattle across the firmament, and that the stars sprung to light where their hooves trod. Undertaking the Herders's Trek promises...
    • Wild animals always accept clover.
    • Your branded animals eat 20% less.
    • Pony Power of Horses lasts longer.
    • Your branded animals have shorter gestation periods.
    • Sizeable quality bonus to all domestic meats.
    • Image
    • Herder depends on Farmer and Nomad.

All Gold & Silver subscribers have been awarded the Rudolf Kit and the Strawberry Santa, free of charge. All Gold subscribers have also been awarded the Yule Top free of charge.

In the Pipe
-----------------------
  • The main dev focus is the client rendering rewrite.
  • Time to... like us on Facebook?
  • With this patch we'll be signing off for some R'n'R over the holidays, but we'll be right back with an announcement of things to come sometime in January. It's been an interesting year, and we have high hopes for the next. From all of us, to all of you. A very...

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Enjoy!

Oof, Christmas came early! Nice stuff, queen ant boss looks sexy. Wolves r lit. Hopefully I don't need a lot of stats to beat the lower ants in the dungeon. I see a bit of furniture too I think. Happy holidays y'all and get rested

What's the rationale for the mini heart-container? Yeah, the meat, bones, and faster anthill-raiding are super useful early-world , but +5 hhp seems like a anti-climatic reward to someone who would benefit more from 2 points of con. This is of course based on the assumption that this dungeon is supposed to be for early-world.
