Greetings! We're excited to share the latest updates on our upcoming game. The development team has been hard at work, and we have some thrilling news to share with you all. Let's dive right in!
1. Arena Visualization: The time has come to bring the arena to life! Our team is starting work on the visual aspects of the arena, ensuring that battles takes place in an immersive environment.
2. Custom Arena Building: We're thrilled to announce that we're exploring the possibility of allowing players to create their own arenas! The arena will be designed in the form of honeycombs, which can be rotated, moved, added, and more. This feature will enable you to craft unique game maps that suit your playstyle and tactical preferences.
3. Balancing Gameplay and Progression: We understand the importance of a balanced and engaging gameplay experience. To achieve this, we are reworking the cards to create distinct fighting styles for each gladiator. For example, the Spider will excel at setting traps and creating obstacles, while the Termite will be a versatile fighter capable of dealing massive AoE damage. The Butcher, on the other hand, will be a nimble assassin, always on the move. Prepare to strategize and adapt your tactics based on your gladiator's unique abilities.
4. Introducing New Gladiators: The roster of formidable fighters is expanding! Our team is working on bringing new gladiators to the game, each with their own set of skills, strengths, and weaknesses. Stay tuned for updates on these exciting additions to the roster.
5. Playtests: We're thrilled to announce that closed playtests are underway! Our team is rigorously testing the game to identify any areas that require fine-tuning and adjustments. Expect open playtests in the near future, where you may potentially even compete with someone from our development team. We value your feedback and look forward to refining the game based on your valuable input.
6. Slaver Cards and Slavemasters: We're working on introducing common cards that will strengthen your decks, known as slaver cards. These cards will be tied to various slavemasters, who will define your playstyle. Whether you prefer a defensive approach, focused on protecting your gladiators and holding strategic points, or an aggressive playstyle aiming to defeat as many opponents as possible, or even a magnate style focused on building up your economy quickly – we've got you covered!
7. Art Design: Our talented artists have begun designing the game, bringing the characters, arenas, and visuals to life.
That's all for this devblog update! We hope you're as excited as we are about these upcoming features and improvements. Stay tuned for more updates and announcements in the near future. Remember, the arena awaits your triumph!
