This fourth week of devlog ends with an important update, as from today, we can have fun (internally only, sorry guys!) in the field playing the game. We promise we will try to share all of this with you in pictures through the devlog, so stay tuned!
Note: You may notice that this ticket has arrived a day and a half in advance, and for good reason: New Caledonia will suffer its second tropical cyclone of the year 2021, and it seems that it will be quite a powerful one (230km / h wind expected). So I prefer to publish this news as soon as I can, because we will very probably suffer from power cuts and being without internet.
Without further ado, here is the latest news from the front!
- Characters can now position themselves and move around the field.
- Characters can also attack and steal unstable energies.
- The Stones of Power manipulations arenow functional
- A basic AI has been developed
- Artifacts roar!
Here are the first images of a game. The basic mechanics are functional, and on the whole, it continues to improve, even if a lot remains to be done: card effects, special effects, game optimization, multiplayer, illustrations, interactions, corrections, calibration, lights, etc.
- You've been talking about stones, artifacts and energy for weeks. Ok, they sound good, but what are artifacts?
- Ok boomer, can you see the power of a star?
- No, but I bet you can imagine it!
– Well if you move all that energy into a mysterious box shaped like a monkey's head, you will get you your artifact.
More seriously, an artifact is a kind of object of formidable power that fits into a player deck. In game, it is represented by a sculpted totem, made up of the different planets from your adventure. Depending on how it is used, it will increase your strength tenfold and cause imbalance to your opponent. So a game can never be won in advance if you know your artifact well ... and that of your opponent! At the moment, there are only three, so they are not hard to follow. The Domination artifact, where only your firepower matters. The Thunder Artifact, where speed is your greatest asset. The Tempus Fugis artifact, where space and time become your allies. It's up to you to optimize your strategy! More information will be given on these objects in future news. At the moment, there are only three, so it's not hard to navigate. The Domination artifact, where only your firepower matters. The Thunder Artifact, where Speed is your greatest asset The Tempus Fugis artifact, where Space and Time become your allies. It's up to you to optimize your strategies! More information will be given on these objects in future news.
When it turns on, don't stick around.
AND THE POWER STONES?
Well these stones are a kind of energy that you will have to manipulate throughout your games. A bit like mana ... but only a little bit. Each stone can multiply a character's attack, so you have to use them wisely, as these are very limited resources ... Here is a scientific demonstration in images with four emblematic characters from EoA:
Ok this is French and it has not been translated. It's not serious for such a big startup! ^^
And how do these Stones come into play?
Can we steal them as shown in the scientific demonstration?
That's all for this week! Haha! Go to the Space Discord as usual. Do not hesitate to tell us what you think about it, or to just complain. XD
Oléti! (thank you)
