Hello Villagers!

The latest demo for Village Monsters, Alpha 1.05, is now out and ready to download.

This patch release contains many fixes and improvements received via feedback from the Kickstarter campaign. Additionally, it also contains a rough prototype for gardening, a new type of activity.

As always, you can grab the latest demo here. I also posted the patch notes at the bottom of this article. Have fun!

In addition to demo news, there are now less than 15 days until the Village Monsters Kickstarter ends! Time is running out if you want to get one of the exclusive Kickstarter rewards, including:

  • Adding your name or phrase to the game
  • Access to all future Alpha & Beta builds
  • Creating an original monster that can visit the village
  • Creating a set of furniture that players can buy for their homes

Many of these rewards are limited and won't be around forever, so what are you waiting for? Come join the village!

      Hey my dudes,
      Me and 4 friends are third year compsci students. Three of us are pretty good at drawing. We are hoping to make a 2d roguelite game with unity during the next few months. We are still brainstorming. At the moment, my idea is to create a card roguelite game:
      First, you would need to choose 2 heroes to enter the dungeon with the goal of finding a treasure. The treasure found gives you extra bonus in later runs. You can choose between mage, gunner, rogue, paladin, warrior and fighter. Each hero has their own unique cards. And there are common cards that every heroes can get(like hearthstone).
      The progression system would be like slay the spire’s. You can choose your own path, but every paths leads to the boss. It would use procedural generation. After defeating an enemy, you get to choose a new card out of the three options. There would be shops, random events, elite enemies, etc
      The combat system is where i need some suggestions on. There would be two piles of deck. One for each hero. I can think of two good combat systems:
      1. Before every enemy encounters, you can choose what cards to use from your deck. Cards not used would not get discarded. Cards are drawn from the deck only if they break or due to special card’s effect. Every card have a durability number. Ones the durability reach zero, the card would break and can no longer be used. Events/enemies can modify the durability of the cards.
      2. Card not used this turn would get discarded. Once the deck is empty, the discard pile gets shuffled and copied to the deck. Card/item effects can increase the number of cards you draw.
      How can I make the game more interesting? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Hi everyone. For the last few months I’ve been working on a simple HTML5 2D side scrolling action game called Theraxius. It's nothing new and revolutionary, it's more like an evolution of different technology (combination of HTML5, PHP, MySQL). The game also includes a level editor so you can create your own levels. The game and the level editor is written almost completely in JavaScript, no download is required. Just load and play. Here are a few screenshots and the link to the page.
      In the next weeks I’ll try to post some videos, try to add registration (for newsletter and later for public test).
      Release date: when it's done

      Hello, 
      So, I'm aware this may be a broad question with a vast variety in the anwser. However, I am a game design student that works professionally for a large engineering company conducting software configuration. Naturally, I'm curious about the path ahead and I'm desperately gathering information on the overall process of developement with Unity. Are there professional resources available that can outline the processes and functions of the engine, and what can be used to interact with it? I'm looking for options other than the official documentation. I have already jumped into that. Thanks!

      I've been making music for about 7 years, I have hundreds of releases on soundcloud and bandcamp. Recently I have stepped up my post production game, pouring long hours into EQ and mixing. Most of my music is in a moody, "foggy" piano style with heavy experimentation through pitch shifting, overdubbing, and live recording. I use a spectrogram EQ to manually shape sounds and scoop out noise in Audacity. I am familiar with many general concepts, applying compression, reverb, high and low pass filters, and pretty much all of the effects in Audacity and many of the pitfalls and lessons of live recording for guitar and piano in my home studio. I am familiar with some other programs like ableton and fruity loops but live recording is my strong suit as opposed to composing music in a DAW. I rely heavily on improvisation, recording large amounts of audio and cutting it down and manipulating it in post as well as doing overdubs. I can put out a project of piano music in a month or so up to what I think is a high / acceptable standard that I personally am happy with.

      I am heavily inspired by Akira Yamaoka's work on the Silent Hill series as well as Angelo Badalamenti. I dream of composing music for games or short films, and feel like I'm ready to take on a project like that, as well as being willing to license my already existing music out which I think would be a perfect fit for the right type of horror game or anything with emotional elements.

      I am currently working on another project that will be released in December or on New Years. I will work for a reasonable amount and have done this out of passion for 5+ years because I love doing it. I feel that I have improved enough now to pursue doing something like this.

      Thank you so much to anyone who even bothers to click any of these links, and thank you for your time!

      Other skills: I do all of my own cover art with digital photo editing and subsequently also have about 5 years of experience with that- photography and digital photo manipulation. I can work on marketing materials or art in this way. I play the Piano, Guitar, Synth / String piano etc, and I sing. I have close connections to some other musicians and visual artists. I will be honest if I don't think my music will work for your project or if I'm not sure if I can do something well enough, but I feel comfortable taking on some general audio design as well, including general sound / dialogue recording or noise reduction.
