Set around the town of Emberheart, the player will go on a journey to make the lands more safe and to clear the road to the valuable resource nodes of crystals. As a rookie, you start out by clearing out some of the wildlife that's starting to pose a threat. When you get more experienced you will find more fierce and more intelligent enemies. You will find dozens of equipment along your journeys and will keep raising in power.

Last week, the Crystal Caves level 1 was 70% finished. So I started by finishing that environment first. Here are screenshots of the finished level complete with spawning monsters:



Then I started working on the Vindovian Swamps, which was 30% complete last week. While I was working on the environment, I decided to start recording my process of level designing. (Somewhere this week expect a movie showing off the process behind making the swamp environment!) So here are some screenshots of the finished level complete with spawning monsters:



Then I went back to programming. I decided to finally start working on a more solid map/minimap system. So I implemented a fog of war system. Here is a screenshot of the map with fog of war:


After that I went back to doing some level design. I was thinking of making the Crystal Caves level 2 similar to level 1, but with this one change that makes it look a bit different nonetheless. Lava! I wanted to make the Crystal Caves level 3, which is the boss level, similar to level 2, also with lava. Since the boss level is a small one, this was a perfect opportunity to see how the lava worked out with the rest of the assets and to set the overall mood the levels will have. Here's a screenshot of the boss level with lava:


I also started thinking what kind of unique legendary items I will have in the game and how I will setup their stats. Here is a sheet of the first iteration of designing unique legendary items and what legendary stats they will have:


Finally, I did another iteration on the design of the crafting system. Things are really coming together on this one. But more on this in the next developer update when I have more info to share!

Meanwhile, the great CaroTIllustrations is creating a new loading screen illustration and a new game logo! I will post the final result in the next developer update!
