by Couchpotato, 2014-07-14 06:03:03

The latest post-funding kickstarter update for Dragon Fin Soup has news from developer Grimm Bros about adventuring sheep, murderous mummies, and a new Wiki.

Adventuring Sheep, Murderous Mummies & New DFS Wiki... Oh My!

Gameiki is a new game wiki site that focuses on indie developers.  They have done a great job building out the initial wiki for us, adding over 140+ pages of content! The Dragon Fin Soup Wiki is now starting fill up with all sorts of goodies, lore and subtle details about the world of Dragon Fin Soup. Gameiki diligently researched and gathered information from all of our news updates, gameplay videos and dev diaries to date. 

The Dragon Fin Soup wiki is also integrated/linked with our DFS forums, online store, and Twitter so you can easily keep connected to our latest news & forum discussions. Check it out!

Crowdfunding Update 

Grand Total raised to date: $125,940 (Including Adjustments & Add-ons)

Development Update 

It has been a great week and the team was able to get a LOT of things done. 

Diagonal Walking was added to keyboard and pad controls both as 4 separate keys and also by pressing 2 of the up/down/left/right keys. A new option was added to the config where you can now toggle auto attack on or off. Traditionally, many RL games trigger attack with the directional buttons; in our game, however, since we have tall walls and tall props, you can often accidentally attack things when you walk around. With the auto attack mode off (by default), you now have to press an attack button on your joypad or keyboard to perform an attack, like in an action RPG, basically. Opening doors still works with the directional keys and the mouse controls have not changed since they work differently all together. 

New sprites were created for the Playable Sheep (aka “Adventuring Sheep”) and we have also added more playable monsters to the labyrinth and survival mode. Now you can be a murderous Mummy out for carnage :D

We know we have not yet reached the next stretch goal but we now added the playable undead characters anyway! Enjoy, and we hope to see you on our forums - http://grimm-bros.com/forum/
