We promised to keep everyone updated every 2 weeks and it’s about that time again. There are so many things going down in the Kingdom that we need a dedicated person, Cambo, running around collecting the goods to keep you informed. These updates will be smaller since we are splitting them bi-weekly instead of monthly but you get news faster, deal?
Importantly, we are working really hard to make sure we bring updates out faster. They will be smaller content updates, but we want to ensure you that we are not holding any goodies away from our community. Your feedback early on, is important and the sooner we can get it out, the better it is for future iterations of that feature!
The Awesome News/Update:
Our first pass on Metallurgy is in the works and you will be able to craft a furnace in the next update. In addition, early iterations of mining will be introduced to fuel your hole digging addiction. More details rolling out this week!
The introduction of Metallurgy and mining brings forth a new age as well. We are moving from the crude age towards Bronze Age with stronger tools and weapons. Higher durability and strength to keep you going. One pick axe to rule them all! I kid, but that would be pretty OP wouldn’t it?
The multiplayer support is currently high priority and we have 2 dedicated code wizards jamming away at it. Lots of technical stuff, I cannot understand, since I would need to be a wizard to decode that information for you all. Personally, I’m a dwarf, so I only care about mining and hoarding all the gold deposits in the mountain biomes. More details will be released in a blog post once it’s ready.
Terrain Generation v2 is also a high priority and we will continue to update the Indev build as we make more progress. The biggest hurdle for us is to ensure we have terrain manipulation working and is stable.
In The Works:
Here are the latest work in progress videos if you missed it.
That is it for now but do keep an eye on our social media channels for more specific details on the updates. Huzzah!
