Project Eternity - Update #47, Odds and Ends

by Myrthos, 2013-03-27 12:03:49

In this update Josh Sawyer talks about the current development status of Project Eternity now that they have the first prototype done and are working towards their second prototype. Furthermore the Torment and Dwarven Forge's Game Tiles are promoted.

We've got a lot of things in progress on Project Eternity right now. As Darren wrote in the last update, we're winding down our first prototype. We just did an audit of the work that remains from the first prototype and where we will be going with the next prototype. Our first prototype allowed us to prove a lot of the basics of movement, character design, stealth, combat controls, inventory, resting, quests, scripted skill interactions, dialogue, status effects, and the ability and spell systems. There's still a lot of work to do on all of those elements, but by the end of the prototype, it really did have "that IE feel". How I organized and moved my characters, how I used them differently in combat, how I explored areas very much captured the feeling of the Infinity Engine games in gorgeous high-res environments.
