Well, it’s been a week, and so far the Brand build seems to be a great success. Much of the credit for that has to go to the folks who patiently endured the bugs and balance issues present in the test builds that I was providing for the last few months, so let me give a thank you to everyone who helped me out by playing those.
That said, squeaking in Demon time while also doing overtime at work has been kinda draining. Work is about to calm down soon, but I need a bit of a break before I jump back into the next piece of Demon development.
I will keep an eye on things here and on Discord in case any significant bugs pop up and address those promptly, as always. But, barring that, I plan on taking a break from development work for roughly 4-6 weeks. This will cover the remaining period of overtime at work (expected to be 1-3 weeks, a bit uncertain still) and also give me a bit of time to rest up from the Brand build push.
It will also give me time to enjoy a certain video game that came out last week… something about three houses.
Until sometime in September, thank you for all your support, and good luck in the Tower!
It took waaaayyyy longer than I’d hoped, but we’re finally here! The Brand build is officially released, and the links to the right have been updated! Thank you to everyone who helped with testing, thank you to everyone period for your patience, and thanks Zyalin for providing another piece of fan art for me to use for the announcement, this one depicting a Summoner who seems to prefer spectral allies!
Even if you played the last Brand test build, there will be new goodies awaiting you. Besides some bug fixes and balance tweaks, there are also new Brand modifiers, as well as Brand-related Relic Upgrades, including Create Brand, which allows you to sacrifice a demon to gain a new Brand based on its Modifier. Oh, and I nearly forgot, you can now also view previous messages by pressing F12!
As you’d probably expect, this version uses a new scoreboard version.
Everything else I would say, I’ve probably said over the last half a year or so. Enjoy, and good luck in the Tower!
Just dropping a small, but hopefully exciting note. The official release of the full Brand build has been scheduled for 7/21!
It’s been a long time in the works, but I hope it proves worth the wait. Thank you everyone for your patience and support, and when the time comes, I wish you good luck in the Tower!
The document viewer doesn’t support colors the same way the message log does, but I was able to get it working as a passable previous message viewer.
Some samples of a few other little extras that will be in the full Brand release.
