That Which Sleeps is a turn based strategy game in which the player takes on the role of an awakened evil from the world's past and must manipulate a living, reactive world from the shadows using a variety of corrupted agents as well as what armies he can muster to his cause. Players must balance an aggressive approach utilizing his considerable powers with the need for secrecy - heroes are constantly examining clues left behind by the actions of the old one and eagerly hunting the player's agents. As the time comes to herald your return, the Chosen One will lead what remains of the world to stop you - will you be ready?

Procedural Map Generation

By far the most daunting stretch goal we reached was the requirement for Procedural Map Generation, especially because we were currently running on a single back-end map sprite. Replacing this system has taken some time, but we've managed to create a Map Builder that allows the user to quickly generate fairly detailed strategic maps to be imported into the Scenario Builder. Take a look at the Dev Log below.

The Map Builder alpha is currently available to Beta Backers and we are moving full steam ahead towards Beta in the next couple of months. I'm hoping to post an update here in the coming days to discuss the technical approach we used in map generation.
