The Haagenti are known for incorporating weapons into their own bodies for quick access. And some can switch out gun types that attach to their arms. This week, let's take a look at what some of those looks like. Most are still in concept stage, but I think it will give you a good idea of what direction we're going in.

How Our Last Playtest Went...

Even though we don't have video...yet! We still try and give fans a glimpse of what the gameplay is like. So we like to start our articles with a look at what happens in our weekly playtests. So enjoy!

"The countdown begins. I take a big breath and concentrate on the first few clicks. Life or death can become you if you don't make good decisions. I take a gamble and go straight to researching higher technology. I want my enchantresses and siege tanks assembled as soon as possible. Suddenly, "A player is defeated," breaking the silence.. Since I wasn't the target of a rush, my panic subsides.

Then, in an effort to make ready my siege attack, I send out my rocketbellies to a point just beyond my base. Quickly, I go to where my Enchantresses are gathering. Then the announcer tells me, "Your troops have engaged the enemy". I move over to where my rocketbellies were assembled and find them missing. They had gone off to fight wandering critters, causing an awakening of a horde of alien bugs. But before I could stop them, Rod marched into my then lightly fortified base, and brought medown to defeat.... lol

Over the past few weeks we have been focusing on RTS game play. Our play tests have been an eye opener. We have elevated the player flow but found looming holes in the player experience. Mainly, we need to focus on easy management of units. So for the upcoming play tests, we will be addressing the issues we found."
