Darkens Heir Dev update April 2019

Since the last announcement a whole lot of stuff has been done. The tutorial dungeon is pretty much finished, the initial level of the Catacombs is done, we have acquired about 400$ worth of game assets for the interface, sound, music and 3d objects, etc etc etc…

An introduction to those who see this for the first time. We have a 4 man team working during their free time in the evenings and weekends for the past months to create a solid Monstergirl RPG Dungeoncrawler. Fans of the old Wizardry or Might&Magic series should feel right at home. The project is realized in the Unity Engine and should run on any standard PC. The player will fight, steal and cheat his way through dungeons and capture Monstergirls along the way. Those Monstergirls can be used as partymembers for combat, or they can be used back home in your town, crafting resources and items, dancing in taverns for gold and getting their butts spanked.

Also we are working on getting a running playable demo out as soon as possible. Currently we are looking at roughly end of April to May for a stable alphaversion, which would contain the first dungeonmaps, a working dialogue system, the first town vendors and shops and a basic combat system. Depending on free time and reallife, dates are subject to change, might even happen earlier. To get your hands on the demo and also support development, please consider supporting us on Patreon. If you are inside the TFT Discord and you are within the gamedev tier, you will get first dibs on the newest builds and also have more regular updates on the progress.

Dungeon Update

A quick comparison on how the dungeons have developed:

new textures – camera movement – realtime lighting and shadows
planning the layout and hooking up events

…compared to an older screenshot:

early flat wall design – flat doors – first light experiments

Art update

Elakan has cleaned and colorized the first 2 common monstergirls for the initial dungeon, the Goblin and the Hobgoblin! They will have flat colors for now because that is easier to work with.
