Re: Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

Re: permadeath. The game isn't a procedural roguelike anymore -- we changed the design about a year ago. So there's no restarting and losing hard-earned characters. At least not by default. We are considering having a mode similar to "insave ironman" with permadeath etc. for veterans and well... ins...

Re: Waking Violet - I made a game!

Indeed! With all the engines available nowadays anyone can be a game developer, but finishing a project is a completely another matter requiring skill and perseverance! Congrats and good luck with the release!

Re: Texture and Modeling questions

Very nice explanation Minmay! Just one more thing: we usually avoid using DXT1 with alpha, because for DXT1 the color channel is interpreted to be black when alpha is zero. This results in dark fringe near zero alpha pixels, because texture filtering will still be affected by those black pixels. Thi...

Re: To AH G3

It's always nice to hear that so many of you enjoyed Grimrock 1 & 2 so much that you keep wanting more. Indeed, such requests makes us feel that we did something right. Thank you for that! But suppose we made Grimrock 3 and it was a success. What then? Grimrock 4? The thing is, life's too short to k...

Re: Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

A blog post is out! This time I'll talk about procedural levels in Druidstone. http://druidstone-game.com/about-proceduralism @Komag: Hehe, it's a little bit scary but it's been great, at least so far ;-) Being able to talk about the code with someone else really helps boost my productivity too. You...

Re: Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

New blog post is up! This time it's written by Jussi Sammaltupa, our new coder. Jussi tells about his feelings after his first work week at Ctrl Alt Ninja: http://druidstone-game.com/jussi-joins-team Can you tell us more about that? [procedural vs. object-oriented programming] I thought OOP was gene...

Re: Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

Question - is there going to be puzzles like LOG? There could be some puzzles but they would be quite rare, certainly not to the extent of LOG. We are focusing on the tactical turn-based battle system and story this time. So is the plan to be Druidstone:SSI-Goldbox as LoG:Dungeonmaster? The battle ...

We are definitely going to set up a Druidstone forum, probably around the time we get a first impressions video out.

Re: Druidstone: The Secret of the Menhir Forest

Both work but if you have lots of questions it's probably easier to answer here since we don't have an official Druidstone forum yet.
