Brand Test Build 8 is up! This one fixes nearly every reported Brand Test Build bug so far, except a couple I had to put in the icebox due to not being able to repro them, or not being a good time investment at the moment.
The usual forum post has the links: http://forum.ferretdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414
Assuming there are no new major issues introduced in this build, I’ll finally be moving on to adding the remaining Brand-related content next for Brand Test Build 9. Cheers, and good luck in the Tower!
Whew. My free time is finally… well, mine again.
I should be able to release Matter Test Build 8 this week, which will fix all current bugs (except any I decide to stuff in the post-release icebox, but that is rare.)
After that, I will immediately begin on #9, which will add the first batch of remaining Brand-related content.
Cheers, and good luck in the Tower!
Hey folks. Apologies for the slower updates this month; April’s had a lot going on, but I should have more development time available after this week.
The bugs are starting to wind down nicely: most of the ones left / being reported recently are balance or polish issues, rather than critical or systemic, so I’ll be switching over to beginning to work on the remaining Brand-related content soon, including Brand-related Relic Upgrades, Brands spawning on corpse encounters, and new Brand modifiers.
Thank you everyone for your help with testing, and for your patience while life’s kept me a bit busier than usual.
Zyalin posted another awesome piece of Demon fan art for me to share. This one depicts Jiang Shi, a Chinese vampire known for using hopping as its main form of locomotion. :D The paper talisman attached to its face is a component of the ritual that creates the Jiang Shi.
Zyalin recently created another piece of great artwork based off of Demon. This one depicts a Flying Head, a demon that harnesses storms to attack its enemies.

Thanks again Zyalin!
Had to fix a freeze issue Zyalin found in Brand Test Build 6. Thanks for the help Zyalin!
Brand Test Build 6 is posted, with lots of new bug fixes and balance tweaks.
The link to the builds is, as always, in the main forum post about the test builds: http://forum.ferretdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=414
Enjoy, thanks for all the testing help, and good luck in the Tower!
Here’s another awesome piece of fan art by Zyalin, this one of one of the Tower’s Slimes! They don’t seem much like a mere Level 1 demon portrayed like this, do they? Thanks Zyalin!
Hey folks, just a quick update: I should have time to get some more bug fixes in and put out a new test build sometime next week. Thank you to everyone who has been reporting game results and giving me bug reports, they are a big help.
Taking a brief break over a long weekend to enjoy Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. I’ll keep an eye on the forum in case any horrid bugs come up with the Brand Test Builds though. Good luck in the tower until I get back in the saddle next week!
