Summoner Roaming and Battle Sprites Complete!

Posted by:

We’re continuing our march through the required sprite artwork for all of the character prologues. Previously, we had created all of the walking animations, but had burned out and only completed the running animations for the Knight, Hunter, Gray Mage, and White Mage.

 

In addition to the roaming sprite, we’ve also completed the Summoner battle sprite which will allow testing her battle mechanics in the prologue.

Well that live stream went perfectly =)!

Seriously, though, thank you everyone that showed up to watch and apologies for the technical difficulties. We had a great time (especially doing the voices) and I think we showed off a lot of what the game has to offer. However, we never got to show you the new characters from Last Dream II.

We’ll have a bonus livestream at the very end of the Steam Next Fest on 6/17 at 7 am Pacific // ...

Temple at Karnac Preview

We’ve been hard at work updating art throughout the game and we’ve been able to utilize that new art in one of Magos’ prologue dungeons – the Temple at Karnac. We’re excited to show off the sandstone temple floors and walls as well as large dragon skeleton that Magos will encounter on his journey through the ruined temple.

In parallel, we’ve also been developing the cutscenes that tell the story of how Magos joins the party in Last Dream II. It ...

Moros Ruins “Art Update” Completed

Our update of the Moros Ruins dungeon art has been completed! The map of the first floor with the original art is shown below:

The updated map with completely updated art is shown below:

 The good news is that much of this art will carry over to other areas, so updating other areas should be a quicker process. For additional detail on the statue, skeleton, door, and other art comparisons, see our recent posts. We are now turning our attention ...

We all remember the classic game Final Fantasy V, right?

 Wait, that’s not right at all! What’s going on here?!

 This blog post is part of a series on the WGRPG Tournaments.

We’re also releasing the app we wrote to the ...

Meet Magos

Meet Magos

Over the last week, we have been rapidly developing the towns and dungeons for the Black Mage’s prologue. Magos (the Black Mage) hails from the desert continent of Nibiru and during his prologue you’ll explore the divided city of Akkad, the Temple at Karnac, and the Desert of Burning Sands.

The Temple at Karnac and the Desert of Burning Sands are roughly complete. The cutscenes that tell Magos’ story prior to when the party coalesces are about halfway done. ...

Continued Art Improvements – Skeletons

We have been busy over the last few weeks on several fronts including rapid dungeon design, Last Dream Fishing Arcade mobile development, and updating environmental art for Last Dream II. The latest improvements to the environmental art can be see in the image below showing a comparison of the new (left) and old (right) skeleton art:

 

The old art was a suitable placeholder so that we could continue development and complete mapping; however, the level of detail and shading realism ...

New environment art!

New environment art!

Our main focus at this point is rapidly developing the game up through the first major milestone in Last Dream II. This involves mapping 5 new towns and 8 new dungeons. We’ve recently added all the roaming and battle music for all of these areas and we’re now working on adding the enemies and enemy groups that you’ll encounter.

In parallel with those efforts, we are going back through completed areas such as the Gray Mage’s Moros Ruins and improving the ...
