Archer Alec - Dev Vlogs

Posted by , 30 November 2012 - - - - - - · 885 views

I've got a few updates this week. First off the two traps for the swamp biome are now finished.

Vine Trap: Entangles monsters that walk into it and holds them for 4-6 seconds dealing damage to them. And will dissappear after the 5th monster it traps.

Bog Trap: This trap will be a tar pool and when small monsters walk over it they will sink into it and die. After a certain amount of monsters it will harden and turn into dirt/rock.

I've also started on working on the mountain biome and a couple of its monsters.
The first monster I worked on was the Troll Rock Thrower mob.

The troll rock thrower will be able to throw rocks/boulders that will do siege damage.
Also the rocks he throws will bounce 1-3 times before breaking.

The next monster I've been working on is the Troll Earth Mage.
The troll earth mage will cast a rock fall above the player causing rocks to fall from the sky doing siege damage as well as hurting the player.

Also I've started vlogging on youtube to help keep myself motivated Posted Image


Oh! And on Indie DB there is a vote for Indie of the Year and getting in the top 100 would give Archer Alec good publicity.

Archer Alec - Swamp Update

Posted by , 09 November 2012 - - - - - - · 1,047 views

Hey guys got a lot of work done in the past week, will be adding music once I get a new build of the game to Philip (he does the music).

Swamp Biome
-Goblin Tar Thrower
This monster throws tar, when the tar hits a block it will stick to it similar to how traps work. Tar slows the player limiting movement.

-Goblin Torch Thrower
This monster throws torches, if a torch hits a player it burns them dealing 1-3 Damage.
When a torch hits tar it will ignite it, if the player walks through the flaming tar he will be slowed and take damage.

-Troll Smasher
This monster is similar to the catapult in that it does massive damage to structures.
Slow moving and slow attacking, this monster has a lot of health and will stop at nothing to get to the player.
Other than its inability to climb ladders.

I have yet to add new traps into this biome, I want to add 2-3 Different traps to this biome.
So if you have any suggestions/trap ideas you can leave them in the comment section and I will take a look!

Thanks for reading, feedback is always appreciated!.

RightClick: Shoot
LeftClick: Place Trap / Buy Trap
SpaceBar: Open/Close doors.
MouseWheel: Scroll through trap bar.


Thanks, feedback/suggestions are always appreciated.
