We’ve made some major headway in the past month on Legend of the Void Chapter 2. The combat system is now almost entirely overhauled with updated code, lots of new skills, and amazing new graphics which may make it the best looking Flash game ever created. I’ll have some screenshots for you soon once I tidy up the unchanged GUI so you can get a feel of just how much better the game looks compared to Legend of the Void Ch1.
Another big upgrade is the addition of a custom character creator which will allow you to create a male or female character with the facial features and skin color of your choice. This was one of the most requested features and I’m glade we’re able to bring it to you in Chapter 2. It also will allow for creation of hundreds of unique looking human inhabitants in Calderia. Quite a step up from the 10 or so default faces from Chapter 1!
Items! Items! Items!
I’ve created a system for Chapter 2 which is able to generate a near infinite number of unique weapons, armor, and items. Also, an upgraded inventory screen with sorting options you will love. I think it addresses all the issues with the inventory system in Chapter 1 without fundamentally changing it (since it really worked well despite the flaws).
This is something I’ve just begun working on (and will probably continue to tweak until release) which I think will have a major effect on the combat experience in Chapter 2. I’m working to make the enemies choose what actions to take in a much more intelligent way by having them analyze the current battle state and choose an optimal skill to use based on what’s available to them. Hopefully it will make for a much more challenging experience and less “Skeleton used Anger! Skeleton used Hatred! Skeleton used Anger! Skeleton used Hatred!”
I’m really working hard to have a beta up in April. Please remain patient and it will be ready ASAP! Testers will be chosen first based on contribution, then on a first come first serve basis.
Thanks for reading! Please leave any questions in the comments or on the Legend of the Void forum and I’ll try respond to them soon.
