'Slingers, I know you've been waiting patiently...in the dark of your mothers' basements (I know I have!). Well your time has come! Watch the video announcement :)
PUBLIC TEST BUILD RELEASE(ed)
We've officially released our "test build" for the app of Grimslingers. This is a Unity web demo that will allow you to play the core elements of the game (namely, a 2 player duel).
There are 4 opponents each increasing in difficulty. It'll take a true Grimslinger to defeat the Coven Overseer, the most difficult opponent.
We now need YOU to test it out, find bugs, experience the duel and let us know what they think of the mechanics.
BUT...IT'S SO UGLY!!
Yes, and we've aptly named it, The "Ugly" Prototype.
Many developers will share pre-fabricated videos of their game to build hype, but the content of those videos isn't actually real gameplay. Or they'll spend a lot of time building the more pretty parts of the game so they can show it off earlier.
Well, we decided to forgo that strategy and build the core game itself. This way, we would know if the game itself was worthwhile, and could fine tune it's awesomeness.
You should all know by know the game WILL be beautiful (just check out the gifs below), but for now, we want to make sure the game is fundamentally fun (pun intended).
Don't get me wrong, visuals make a game more fun, especially for an artist like myself, but if the gameplay those visuals are wrapped up in sucks, the visuals are pointless in the end.
