Songs of Conquest - Development update #37

by Silver, 2021-07-16 14:13:13

The latest development update for Songs of Conquest which some compare to Heroes of Might and Magic 3.

Hello, both old and new friends! These last few weeks have been a thrilling ride to say the least. As most of you will know by now: We released a gameplay reveal trailer at the PC Gaming Show during E3. The feedback has been beyond our wildest dreams. Rock Paper Shotgun called it “one of the prettiest games at E3” and one Kotaku writer admitted to “losing his shit” over the game. As if that wasn’t enough, the organizers of E3 gave our humble indie game an award, naming it the most anticipated game from the PC Gaming Show! So yeah, pretty stoked about it all. The wishlists are growing daily and we hope that you will be as excited as we are when you finally get to play it! If you haven’t wishlisted the game yet, please take the time to do it on Steam, GOG, or EGS. It doesn’t pay our bills but it feeds our vanity.


Italian Spartacus is a streamer and Youtuber that was really impressed with our trailer. Not sure if we can live up to his high expectations, but we’ll try!

And speaking of playing the game. Some of you know that we currently have a small closed Alpha going and we are getting some great feedback. There are still a lot of things to work on, but it is clear that we are on the right path. It feels great to finally be able to let one hundred lucky gamers try the game out, but we will also do more test rounds during the fall. So if you missed out this time, there will be more chances.

The team has been busy with development and despite E3 the pace hasn’t slowed down. As you might know, we have a few different teams that focus on different parts of the game. So let’s start out with team tech, who pretty much does all the heavy feature coding. Our lead programmer, Niklas, has been adding a bunch of new features to the level editor. A lot of quality-of-life features, such as preview-images of map entities as well as tooltips with explanations before you place objects in the level editor. He also found Patrik's old island generator code that we used a couple of years ago. Niklas has now modified it to work with the current version of the game and added it as a way to generate a more interesting starting point for new levels in the level editor.


Checkboxes galore! Niklas loves to add functionality to the level editor whenever he needs some relaxed coding time.


Thanks Farflame!
