We got Greenlit!

Wet Fire Games:
  Assault On Isegran has been Greenlit 1/12/2017! I posted it the 1st of the year and in 11 days the game has been approved to more forward. Currently I couldn't possibly think about selling it in early access, but perhaps by April it will be in a state of an enjoyable early access experience.


Assault on Isegran

Game Mechanics:
  The timed wave/pooling system is now complete. It allows multiple spawn points around the village, spawning enemies at different times with optional Boss spawns during each wave. Each wave is set to continue regardless if our player has killed all the existing enemies.
 
  There are several main objectives before the game can be released on steam for early access sales.

  1. Setting up the remaining characters controllers i.e. Mage, Hunter, Priestess. Of which they will not all have all abilities setup, but at least the ability to choose them and use basic attacks.
  2. Setup the score system to award crystals that will unlock special vanity items.
  3. Configure more enemies and bosses. 
  4. Setup at least 5 maps to play on (with many more to come).
  5. Setup the guards and town NPC's that allow for the town to be upgraded.
  6. I'm sure there is 1 or 2 things I left out, but I will updating the status here 😊
Multiplayer

Orcs attacking village walls - Wave 1




Graphical User Interface:
 A new GUI is being developed to replace the 'developer art' for the wave system, health/stamina, login screen and game lobby.

Website:
 I've been adjusting AssaultOnIsegran.com to have a different look and feel, please keep in mind that it is still in development. Random project status updates and other AOI media can be found living there.

Wave & Pooling System - Assault On Isegran!

Wet Fire Games:
  A rather basic prototype of the game will be released in August! It will provide you a sense of the foundational game play but will not contain all of the planned features.

Assault on Isegran
Networking:
  A timed wave/pooling system is now 90% complete. Currently it allows multiple spawn points around the village, spawning enemies at different times with optional Boss spawns during each wave. The system will be completed in the next couple days so stay tuned for our August update!

Game Mechanics:
 Killing enemies now rewards exp, health, and score.

Graphical User Interface:
 The new GUI is now tied to exp, health, and score.

Steam Greenlight:
 My primary focus. Development time heavily geared towards a demo for Greenlight release.

Character Renderings:
 Here is a high quality rendering done by noted industry veteran Adam Sacco. His work has been also seen in Halo 5.

Aiming for Greenlight

Wet Fire Games:
  A Demo is almost available. To keep the blog more interesting I will be including some in game GIF files so you can see small captures of game-play. Also We did start putting a page together on indiedb.com you can check out out here:

Assault on Isegran
Networking:
 Currently the AI and combat system mechanics are working over the network. Although they are not perfect this will serve as a acceptable demo.

Game Mechanics:
 A wave system is in place which keeps track of how many enemies are spawned. The enemy wave mechanic allows for timed spawning, quantity, variety and even rewarding exp, currency, and score.

Steam Greenlight:
 As the primary focus, development time heavily geared towards a demo for Greenlight release. I will be listing the objectives and tasks leading up to the release either on the blog or something like Trello but I haven't quite decided yet. Please feel free to comment with any feedback you may have on sharing that type of information.Here is our Archer character in her new poster image.

April Fools got time for Game Dev

Wet Fire Games:
  Its April and we gearing up to release a Demo as soon as possible. A new combat system is now in place and a more robust AI is taking form. To keep the blog more interesting I try to start including some in game GIF files so you can see small captures of game-play.

Networking:
 Working to setup the new animations, AI, and combat system mechanics on the network. We are sure once these are implemented that a demo will be released.

Game Mechanics:

 Melee Combat, so crucial and important. With this in mind the old RPG system was replaced. Now combat mechanics feel more comfortable. The controls handle similar to Skyrim, The Witcher3, or Dark Souls.

Steam Greenlight:

 Our last post in January talked about Greenlight and I am devoted to get something out as soon as possible. The game play is feeling more rounded and an early prototype multiplayer experience is the number one focus.

Concept Art: New Character!

 As you may have noticed we have changed our characters backgrounds and made nice little poster looking image for our characters. Here is our Mage with his new background and game logo.

New year progress!

Wet Fire Games:

 The month has gone by quite fast and much of the development was spent on flushing out bugs, combat system, and the first map environment. Additionally there were some features of Unity 5 that needed to be learned including a more in depth knowledge of Atmospheric Scattering and Global Illumination.

Networking:
 So far so good, there will likely be many optimizations as the project continues. The goal is to work mostly from the prototype as it is until the existing game mechanics have been further developed out.

Game Mechanics:

 Spells: Added a new spell for the mage, Whirling Wind Projectile.
Attacking: Working on new casting system that is less RPG like in nature. Currently skills are dropped into skill hot bar and then clicked from there. This new system does not require drag and drop of skills and will serve better for testing game pad support.

Steam Greenlight:

 With great excitement I would like to start mentioning the consideration for releasing a steam greenlight page. Many developers recommend getting the community involved with a game project as early in the process as possible so our intention is to do just that. Within the next couple months I will work towards a more rounded game for an early access multiplayer experience and release the prototype on the future greenlight page. More details to come next month!

Concept Art: New Character!

 Check out the Priestess Concept! The thought behind the Priestess character was kept simple with basic information about the character, i.e. Female, Warrior, Medieval fantasy, Nordic Influences (Viking age), Kind & cheerful Personality yet battle hardened. From this information the Priestess took shape into our newly rendered character concept shown below.

Good bye 2015 and hail 2016 goals! Happy New Year!

Yikes the end of another year in 30mins!

Wet Fire Games:

 The Rig I have been developing on has been upgraded to reduce some development time and testing. Intel Core i7-5930K and a fancy new Intel 400GB SSD NVMe PCIe 3.0 x4 drive (4 times faster than the 1TB SSD being used currently).

Networking:  Taste the cloud!

 Since last months announcement, the project has been tested and operating smoothly so far within the Photon cloud solution. So far... the cloud is delicious. Added in networked components for game mechanics, read next section!

Game Mechanics:

 Functionality added and tested across the network: Looting, NPC's, NPC Interaction, Building, Spells, Attacking, enemy npcs, player & enemy damage/health, mount, resource harvesting, crafting, equiping, currency, shops, and more that we will talk about in greater detail as they evolve.

Concept Art: New Character!

 Check out the Warrior Concept! The thought behind the Warrior character was kept simple with basic information about the character, i.e. Male, Warrior, Medieval fantasy, Nordic Influences (Viking age), Young, newly battle worn in appearance and muscular. From this information the Warrior took shape into our newly rendered character concept shown below.
