World 4 is being tested, level 5-1 available for testing too

Posted by on

After several days of improving world 4, improving GUI (mostly menus and prompts) and working slowly on tiles and sprites for world 5, I've released alpha which features level 5-1 and all the previous improvements, including a bit better sprite for the Goblin. Finally, we get to see the Castle Keep... Well, not really. No pictures nor videos today, sorry folks.

Still waiting for the good people who are doing the testing on world 4 to report any bugs. Haven't started work on Legend besides making space for it in the main menu, but I have decided on five meals to be featured in the recipes. I'll do that alongside the world 5 levels during late October and November. I expect to have all the story levels and maybe even a challenge level by the end of November, when I'll start implementing Steamworks features (achievements, cloud save, leader-boards for challenge) and start closed beta testing of Steam version.

Release date? Still not sure, but either early December or late January most likely. Depends on the progress and my other duties in life.
