The Scrimmage Loop where the gameplay loop is finally playable was completed last week like announced on social media. We can now build decks and fight with them! We are trying to finish the DB Loop and get the build to a state where there is a solid pass on the shell, cards, and levels in anticipation for the Twitch Event.
- The Engineering team worked on card features including copying unit features; HUD features including removing player token from timeline; shell including flow, raid screen, My Labyrinth screen, deck editor, card collection; effects including 3D knockback, teleport, sweep, and snappier actions and movement; other engineering "stuff" including refactor save/load and serialization, design tools, improved continuous build system to build Playfab server, leaderboard API for web pages; and moving pre-alpha build from editor to platforms: Steam build up, working on iOS and android builds.
- The Art team worked on animating the Priestess of Sun including skinning, rigging, plus animations and skinning for the Royal Stonemason; card art for Bane and Zigg; effects for dodge, Heal Warfare, Blademaster melee, Duelist melee, thief melee, and blind debuff; character art including Wizard of Wastes model, Zombie Hunter tweaks, magic tube sigils, and experiments for Shenjang; level work for the Giant boss; and UI work including matchmaking screen, landing screen standardization, deck builder.
- The Design team worked on map/scene integration and polish; implementing cards for Ancient Master deck, Minotaur deck, and Wizardry boss cards.
