It's been just over a week since Tom/Vocal_nebula joined the project and all of the features and changes to the source, listed on the todo list, have been added to the game. You can view new additions here. Progress has been going really well and now Tom will be coding in the quest content as I write it up.
Some images from recent testing:
The new duel system. Players are able to face off in the arena or spectate the battles.
Lightning teleportation. Push space when nearby an enemy with the lightning aura active and you'll zap to your target!
What we plan to do now is incorporate the storyline and item content into the game. We have a lot of fun content planned, from a village of oddball Cyclops to bandit camps, epic boss fights, a variety of interesting items, and new features, such as cutscenes, to engage the player and give a more personal feel to the story. We'll be filling up the towns with busy villager NPCs, some of which even dish out randomly generated quests.
Needless to say, it's going to be a lot of fun to be able to bring the game's lore to life.
Be sure to keep an eye out and stop by once we have the test server back up!
