They come in waves

The second arena build is finally here! This is our final week before have before leaving for our holiday, and this time id did not end up nice and smooth as we planned it.

We made changes to the spells and added some extra combinations, casting light magic will spawn a shield instead of a laserbeam.

We added more assets to the arena, reconstructed the walls and made some minor adjustments.




The enemy AI behavior has been adjusted and also sped up a bit to provide some challenge.

Health potions now spawn when breaking pots, so plan your battles carefully.

Oh and the waves are endless

Some minor adjustments was also made in the tutorial level to match the current spell casting.


We spent some time with feedback given to the player, such as taking & making damage, we still have a distance to go before we feel completely satisfied with our mechanics, that means that you may still give your opinions on our different features.

Regarding builds for different platforms

First off; when we finally pinned down our last tasks, we prepared to build for the different platforms, but packaging the project failed, we stayed up all night trying to find the solution but did not manage to do it.
When we finally were able to build we were only able to build for Windows 32 & 64 bit, the mac version required a specific file which we could not retrieve. And we have not had time to fix a version for Linux as of yet, we will look more into this for the next version.

If we even touch a variable we wont be able to build anything because of packaging fails, until we solve this we cant build new versions.


The near feature

We will take a short holiday until the second week of January. When the new year begins, we plan to start developing the demo. New enemy designs are incoming and some Naarative will be implemented bit by bit. Our end goal will be to have a complete and polished demo at the end of May, with a new level and more magic to cast!


We hope that you enjoy playing in our arena, and don’t forget to leave us feedback!
Stay tuned for future updates! And we appreciate all the help we received from you!

The Mustache Man

First of all, a big thanks to all the people from Imgur who turned up to try out our prototype last week! For those who don’t know what we’re talking about, we made a post at Imgur last week, and a lot of people showed interest and gave us feedback. We even had some people who offered their services with effects, music and voice acting, a special thanks to you guys!


After the arena build release and receiving a lot of helpful feedback, we are currently working on adding more waves of enemies, as well as tweaking the AI and mechanics of the individual enemies. A lot of new animations have been implemented and yes, the mustache is alive, we have now implemented jiggle-physics.


Aside from that, we are polishing all the mechanics to provide with a smoother and more challenging gameplay.

And for all of you who are not comfortable with the camera movement, we have implemented the ability to invert the camera movement in both Y and X-axis! This can be accessed through the menu screen.

We have no plans to implement free aim for this version, but our programmer is aiming to implement a lock-on system, making it possible for you to hard lock onto targets and cycle between them.



During our first few builds we were contacted by Sixten (a composer and sound editor), he jumped in and started to work with music for Naar. He has provided us with two sounds, one for the title and one for the combat. He is is a talented individual as you will hear.


Regarding the different version compatibility, we will try to build for Windows 32bit & 64bit, and Linux. But to be able to build for Mac-versions we need to get a hold of a Mac computers and that is not possible for us right now. We apologize to the people on mac computers who wanted to try out our prototype, and we hope you’ll hang on until we manage to get a version for you to play!

Subscribe to be first to test the coming build next week!

Week 8 Quick updates

Hey hey hey! We hope that you enjoyed some of the fighting in our arena!

For this week we are going to make a quick update on things that are in the making!

We pushed in our new character model, we call it Simm (The arabic word for poison). A conjured being that is half snake – and half something else! It will always try to keep its distance between itself and you, so try to be quick on your feet!


We also added a target marker to indicate which enemy you are aiming at.

For the next couple of weeks we will work on a lot of polishing based on the feedback we received from all of you. Such as when casting magic, getting hit or hitting an enemy! Before we continue adding more enemies and spells, we need to polish the features currently implemented , and hopefully replace a lot for the placeholders that we still have in the game.


Just as a reminder, this game is mainly intended to be played with a controller so if you are able, consider trying it out for the optimal experience.
Oh and don’t forget to leave us feedback, we really need to know how you feel about our prototypes!
