So Reign and Rule was originally a ludum dare game for LD28 called "one man armies" and the results of the ludum dare were posted! One man armies came 77th! Woah, I expected it to get a higher score than my previous entries, but to get in the top 100? What?!?

So woohoo! My game also came 78th for fun and 117th for audio... I don't understand, my game had 8 randomly generated tracks in it, how was it's audio better than others? Well anyway, back to the update:

Characters:
All the characters graphics have finally been updated! Well, except for one but we don't talk about him.

Artists are amazing aren't they?

Local multiplayer:
So I was doing a bit of dabbling in local multiplayer, and it was really easy to implement due to the way I set up the code previously. The controls for a keyboard only player still needs some tweaking. I'm not sure if multiplayer should be in the game because of the way the game works. If I get enough time to work on it, I might make a separate mode for it like a wave or open world mode. But that's for the future.

Graphics:
So, if the character graphics update wasn't enough, there's been another!


As you might be able to tell, Npcs now come in different flavors! For example, farmers can have brunette, red, blonde or black hair and dogs can be grey, blondish, brown and beige! (Wolves are always grey) . This adds a lot more variety to the game which looks quite nice. Majority of the npcs have now been converted to this system, hope its worth it!

Hope you enjoyed the update! If you want to check out the ludum dare page, you can do so over here:

And if you play the game, remember, that version was made in 48 hours, so it isn't as good.

See ya later!
