The End of Weekly Posts

Hello everyone! Today we are announcing that we will be transitioning out of our usual weekly post format. We will still be posting to the dev log however things will be more irregular form now on. This is good news because it means the next post we make will be real progress towards getting you a copy of the game. We will be announcing our Kickstarter and revealing our trailer very soon! We are working very hard to make sure everything is ready so hang in there!

Week 88 - New Marketing Phase Kick starter Prep

Hey everybody. First off our deepest apologies for not having the trailer to show this week. We have been informed that it would not be a good idea to release the trailer separate from the actual Kickstarter page. However the trailer is finished and we are now working on the Kickstarter page itself. We will be announcing our Kickstarter date in a couple weeks. We are chomping at the bit to show everything off but we must do it in a way that will benefit us most. We have been working on the banner and we touched up our old banner this week because a lot of people seem to still like it.

Sorry for the short update, but there really will be some more definite news about when we will do our Kickstarter and when early access will begin for Raven’s path soon! Check back next Wednesday for another update.

Week 87 - Looking Back

This week we have the first final draft of the trailer ready. We are still going to look it over for a week and determine how we want to post it, however watching it has made us feel sentimental about our 3 year journey to get to this point. We are so grateful for the the kind words and people that have become new friends along the way. We are about to take our next big steps with this project and we feel like we are right where we need to be. I made a couple of videos showing how much things have changed since we started marketing the project, but first check out the unit that Kiril polished this week!

Edward The Black prince has a chance to block incoming attacks and when he does he gives an attack and accuracy buff to units in his row. In this scene after getting hit by the balde maiden a few times Edward gives his buff to the Wulvers around him. Wulvers have a very fast attack speed in the first place and they can stun units by Wrapping them in a cocoon. With the extra buffs they are very deadly.

Here is what a 1 year difference looks like. Of course many things outside of combat and artwork have changed too, but its fun to see what it used to look like a year ago.

That’s all for this week! Check back next Wednesday when we will be posting the first Official Trailer for Raven’s Path!

Week 86 - King Alfred Polish

Hey everybody! We don’t have a ton of new content this week, but we are busy preparing for Kickstarter. The trailer is almost finished and we will be releasing it at the end of the month so get excited! Soon after that we will announce our Kickstarter date. At which point backers of the game will be able to start getting their hands on the alpha build of the game. All this is coming soon! For now please enjoy the visual updates kiril made this week to King Alfred!

That’s all for this week! Sorry for the short update, but I promise we will be delivering a lot more information next month! Check back next Wednesday for another update!

Week 85 - Lancelot, William Wallace & The Cardinal

This week we are back on track after the holidays! Kiril has not 1 but 3 polished units this week! I am hard at work on the trailer and I would say its about 50% done at this point so hopefully it should be ready by the end of January.

William Wallace has been cleaned up and now has smoother less fuzzy animations as well as color changing hair. He has the ability to side slam units that are lined up causing a shock wave through all of the units in that row. He also gives all friendly units an attack buff if he is the only unit in his row.

Lancelot is able to hit units in a cone with his lance. He deals half damage to the 3 units far away from him and 25% damage to the unit directly in front of him. This makes him great for kiting. His hair feet and shoulders have been cleaned up and his hair now animates in the wind.

The Cardinal is able to buff the attack of two spaces, If you slide him around right before combat and hand out his attack buff to all units you will deal a lot more damage. Kiril gave him some gold trinkets to signify that he is a rare unit, and he also cleaned up his animations.

Week 84 - Happy New Year!

Sorry we took a week off last week to celebrate the new year and see old friends and family. We have been doing a few things in the background during the holidays. I have been working on the trailer and there are some great segments coming together that we are very excited to show off at the end of the month. Kiril has been touching up units and well be showing some more of those next week. We are excited to get back to work this week. For now enjoy some combat.

You can combo units by staggering their attack times. You can see here at the beginning of the fight I lined up my two knights in the middle so that I could deal both their attack damages to the ballista. If the ballista is aloud to fire its arrow it will deal a lot of damage so its best to target it first.

Week 83 - Ancient Healer Colors, Trailer Prep

This week Kiril fixed up the ancient healer. She now has a color key for her robe and hair.

I've been doing a lot of work on the trailer lately. Unfortunately all that will have to be shown of when we officially release our trailer, but for now we are going to try and show a little more of the backgrounds and units we haven’t shown as much.

This is an incredibly difficult late game fight. If you get to this part of the game without using any ranged units you may have to start using them here. The wulver is a wolf with a fishing line. He can wrap units in front of him in the fishing line stunning them for 2 seconds. It is important to hit him from at least 1 space away. However you can see that even with 3 spear/lance units I wasn’t able to kill the wulvers before they wrapped my front line. If I had a ranged unit shooting them as they come down this fight would be a lot easier.
