Dungeon Panic Alpha 2 (The Dungeon Release)
G’day g’day everyone! DevJohn here!
Last night we pushed a new Dungeon Panic version up to Google; version 0.0.5, aka “Alpha 2” aka “the Dungeon Build.” If you’re a backer and you’re signed up for the alpha, you should have the new version pushed to your device(s) already, or very soon if not.
As we mentioned in a previous Kickstarter update, we gave ourselves a deadline of Oct 25 to get something to the backers, regardless of the current state of the code. We went a little over time and spent the weekend getting some last stuff done, but it was necessary.
So, the first (randomly generated) dungeon is now playable, with whatever character the player creates in the CharaMaker. It’s very rough still; it is an alpha after all. Bugs and glitches abound. It’s also fiendishly difficult, as Default Dude above can attest. Those Skellingtons and Green Slimes don’t make it easy! We’ll continue tuning that as we go.
Expect incremental updates to roll out on a pretty regular basis from here on. We’ll post something for the more notable ones.
Also, if you have been a visitor of the backer forums, let it be known that I am checking it regularly again and posting weekly updates. Kickstarter updates will tend to lag behind for logistics reasons; the backer forum is the Prime Spot. C’mon back.
Until next time!
