I'll create another minor version to fix bugs in chapter 8 in few days. Now is the time to give much feedback as possible about chapter 8.

Actually I changed my mind: I'll create improvements to all around the campaign and especially focusing on some bosses. This will take of course some more time but I think it's necessary.

So here is what I'm doing right now and what the next version will have:

  • Lucky Box: I've rearranged the items and made some new ones. Now they're more balanced and all items are now completely done from chapter 1 to 10.
  • Book System: You can now read background stories of the campaign. This is a great boost for the campaign and it has all kind of knowledge from characters, dragons and death knights all the way to places. It totally has 80 pieces of texts which I've been working last three years.
  • Also these bosses will have some improvements: Chapter 2 Elite, Chapter 2 Epic, Chapter 4 Elite, Chapter 5 Epic and Chapter 7 Epic.

When you say "improvement", do you mean the difficult or the boss itself(more skills, more movements,etc) or both?

Both, more moves and that way more challenging.

And I just heard it will take two weeks before the optimizator is fixed and then we'll faster loading times.

Oh no there's levers!

This is going to mean annoying sequences and stuff other than just kicking his face in :)

I've been doing chapter 9 last few days. These pictures are from the chapter and are really "alpha stage" as you can see.

Well it certainly looks nice!

I for one don't know how a chapter of only bossfights will work out, I mean if there are no creeps then how can players level up and stuff? What about quests?

There will definitely be creeps.

And yes there are quests too. In this chapter you first play with Phodom, then Fradz, then Galeoth and finally with all characters together.

And here's overview what I've made so far.

Last few days, I've been doing a lot terrain. I plan to finish the terrain in about one week.

After terrain I start to create the cinematics.
