Game Development: Orca Christmas

Announcements about major changes in Haven & Hearth.

Game Development: Orca Christmas

Postby jorb » Sat Dec 21, 2019 9:08 pm

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

Image

New Implementations
-----------------------
  • Added "Orcas". Orcas are pack traveling tooth whales that roam the oceans, and can be hunted for sport. Fun times! Beware!
  • Added "Elven Lights". The elves are hard at work in the spirit of the season, and have clad certain trees in a strange new vine. Herb, curiosity. Also gave us the opportunity to add a pretty cool new light effect.
  • Added/Re-Added combat effects to most attacks and moves. Stuff we've made for the new combat system, or imported from old Haven, and added in. Should make combat more readable to an outsider. Not all attacks and moves have effects yet, but many do.

Image
As always, if you liked what we did here: Support the patch.

Today's Patch Items, for the fair price of $5, $10, and $15 are the "Candy Cane Bowler", the "Christmas Gnome's Cap", and the "Christmas Cowboy"

Store Description wrote:Image$5 Nothing like a stick of candy when out bowling through the snow, to get into the proper spirit of the season!

Store Description wrote:Image$10 Santa can always use another li'l helper to lend a hand and ear around the Yuletide!

Store Description wrote:Image$15 Real heroes do not wear neither black, nor white, but red, and green, and gold, and you to can become a bona fide reindeer wrangler, with the Christmas Cowboy Hat!


All Silver subscribers have been awarded the "Candy Cane Bowler", and all Gold subscribers have been awarded the "Candy Cane Bowler", "Christmas Gnome's Cap", free of charge.

In the Pipe
-----------------------
  • With this patch, we are checking out for the year, for some R'n'R, and wish you, and all of yours, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. It has been an interesting year, with a world reset, and we're chomping at the bit to get back to it in January. Thank you all for your support throughout this year, and others. Merry Christmas!
  • The main dev focus is the client rendering rewrite.
  • Time to... like us on Facebook?

Enjoy!
