Heileen 2 on Steam, and SOTW update

First of all, the second Heileen game is now out on Steam. Go get it now:

Existing customers can redeem a Steam key as always on this site:

The third title will come later in July, since needs more careful testing (and I’m reserving some time to work on SOTW!). Nicole was Greenlit too, so expect to see it on Steam too sometimes (maybe next month too). Talking about the otome version only obviously, since the yuri isn’t even ready on my own site :D

Speaking of Seasons Of The Wolf

I made some progresses on SOTW this week, coded whole Krimm backstory and started chapter 11 also known as “Dingirra Adventures pt.2″. The first quest of that chapter let me implement the new dungeon tileset, you can see the result below:

Differently from the “open map” of the first act, in this second act there are dungeons like this that have limitation to simulate the fact that the party doesn’t know what lies behind each door. So for example you must open a door to move in a new room, and every time you move your available options change based on the room contents. I am not sure if I’ll need to put also some sort of visual indicator to show the current party room/position, I’ll see during testing.

Now that the party is bigger, I have also implemented some small “choose who will perform the action” menu, similar to what I have on my game Planet Stronghold. There are no skills involved this time, but in practice they’ll force you to pick a character who can’t be available on the next battle, so that players will be required to rotate the party member a bit ;)

And if behind a door lies a surprise like this one…

a really nice encounter, isn’t it?

That’s all for now! Lots of more stuff going on but I’ll talk about it when I have something to show ;)

    I’m looking forward to SOTW. But I look forward to all your games so that’s not saying as much as it could. I can’t wait!

    Little confused about how the dungeon is supposed to work. Do doors just become available to click on as you open adjacent ones?

    • admin says:

      Yes, once you click a door you enter the corresponding room, and the available options change. I think is clear enough but might add some extra visual indicator :)

    Really looking forward to SOTW. Any news on Roger Steel? You mentioned at the end of your 23rd May blog post that you planned to share some news and hoped to show some artwork this month. I look forward to it. How is the game progressing?

    • admin says:

      I got some sketches this week, but I want to wait to have some more stuff (colored) before showing anything. The writing is at good point, over 30k words written but is a big game so still not even halfway. For sure will talk about it in July, maybe sooner but not sure yet :)

      • Diego says:

        Awesome, glad to hear it’s progressing! Can’t wait to hear more about it and see some artwork for it.
