New Features on the horizon!

The Open Alpha just launched, and you might be wondering what happens next.
Here are some of the things hovering near the top of the priority queue.

Responding to feedback & bugs

A large part of the next update will be to fix things that aren’t working for people.

If you find something wrong or run into technical issues, let me know!
The game also has a nice itch.io forum you can use.

New Enemy types & Levels!

More challenges are coming!
While there may be updates that are largely about support systems around the game, I’ll do my best to inject fresh challenges each time for experienced players.

One major area to explore is non-humanoid enemies.
Expect this friendly dog to show up soon:

Kicks overhaul!

Kicking is an awesome ability. Knock people over in order to stab them. Kick them into sawblades! The fun-potential for kicks is vast.

However, play testing has revealed that the current version is very difficult to use.
An easy-to-use overhaul is coming!

Kicks in sword fighting are generally not recommended.
Lucky for you, Clone Drone in the Danger Zone allows you to continue fighting if your leg gets cut off!

Twitch Mode!

While the fast pace of Clone Drone in the Danger Zone does not lend itself well to a twitch-plays style integration, the arena format could be a natural fit for letting viewers interact more deeply with the person streaming.

In 2016 getting a twitch chat to show up in the game is very straightforward.
Expect some interesting experiments! 🙂

Story Progression

Much work remains to be done on the story progression of the game.
This is perhaps one of the aspects of the game where being in alpha is most keenly felt.

I’ll slowly build it out, but custom content tends to take a lot of time, so other features with a higher impact might take priority.

    I don’t have the money now but will be buying it on steam when it comes out. I think your up to somthing great with this game, iv seen it playet by Dregast on YouTube and I now really want this game. Can’t wait for it to come out on steam and I don’t know if you already have it in there but a multilayer mode or versus mode would be amazing. If you read this then I wanted to say thank you for this game and I wish you the best of luck.

    So awesome, I’ve always been the kind of fellow who’s really hard to captivate for long stretches, but this game and it’s unique style as well as gameplay, even in it’s alpha state keep me playing, trying to perfect my movements to say, remove every enemies head, or just slice it open. The fact it’s skill based really is the drawing point for me. I love the saw bladed dog, will be totally fun rocking that thing! One suggestion, and I’m sure you’ve already thought of it, would be for an arena mode that allows you to decide the challenge. So if you want to fight say, fifty swordmen, you could do that- y’know? As well as being able to customize your own weapon in the long run, like axes, flails, halberds, spears, as well as two handed/one handed weapon variants. Maybe even allow the player to decide on fighting styles! They could be simply different animations and attack zones that would allow the player to really learn and adapt all sorts of different styles of attack and defense, so they feel like they’re constantly developing skills of their own. And allowing people to customize their bot, even in small ways, like small frame that allows faster movement but they would be more frail, and strong big frame that can cleave through stronger enemies attacks but moves slower, as well as any in between. As well as varying looks, perhaps even alternate legs and arms, torsos and heads, to allow different stat boosts! And finally, perhaps allowing people to purchase different gear based on how well they’re doing, like armor to certain areas that allow them to take an extra bit of damage to specific areas! Either way, amazing work. I’m so excited to see where this goes!

    I think one of the best things that could be added is a mode with randomly generated enemies or a mode where the player chooses the enemies they want to fight.
