We’re on a roll. In fact, we moved Kickstarter to April 9 to accommodate some crunch-time polish (it will all be worth it we think 😉). This also means we need to create another update accounting for our progress before the launch—so read on!
Map Editor Updates + Plans
Over the past month Bradley put loads of emphasis on our map editor. We unexpectedly received a lot of love on Imgur last month. And since then, we’ve only been improving this tool.
Our main focus remains honing the gameplay experience of Crystal Companies, but because so many people have noted the extensibility of our proprietary map editor, we plan to make a standalone app available to our Kickstarter backers.
For those of you who want to see the additions to this tool since the big Imgur post (which does a decent job of reviewing its features up to that point), here you go!
Terrain Boxes, Rifts, Cyclones, Etc.
Gameplay: Conquer + Camera
- Camera controls are finally here! 📷 Swivel that baby to your heart’s content.
- Conquer points can be scored whenever a build site is captured. Maintain control of all build sites for a turn and you’ll win the game! It works like a tug-of-war though, so make sure to factor fending off your opponent into your conquer equation! ➗➕ Conquer!
Rade + Saen Up Close
While new art will be revealed soon, we’ve made a couple of posts exploring two of Crystal Companies‘ captains: Rade and Saen.
On the Horizon
In case you missed it: Kickstarter! We’ll see you there 👋😉👍
