Introducing Prologues & BattlegroundsIntroducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Dawn of the Tyrant: Prologues is the exciting precursor to the forthcoming full version of the game and a special way to experience the early Alpha version of the game.

Exclusive to our Tyrant Legions members on Patreon, those who unlock Alpha Battlegrounds access as part of their tier rewards will be among the first to try out the game and can take their part in the Prologues story by playing a series of Battlegrounds: fast-paced scenarios where they will help write the future storyline of the game through World Quests.

Introducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Fight in fast-paced Battlegrounds

Each Battleground in the Prologues series is a playable scenario in the Alpha version of the game where players will lead and fight alongside their chosen warband in one of the many scattered clashes that will pave the way for the flames of all-out war.

Battlegrounds in Dawn of the Tyrant play host to fast and brutal battles. Some can be over and victory declared in just minutes. Choosing the best Path for your player character, selecting the right composition for your warband, and finding the perfect moment to unleash your special abilities can all lead to triumph – while a moment’s hesitation or a poor decision could see your warband wiped out or a critical objective lost.

Take part in the first World Quests

Each Battleground scenario in Prologues will include our signature World Quests feature, giving players the power to influence the future and start influencing the story before the full version of the game even starts. What happens upon the Battlegrounds of Prologues will affect the story and balance of power when Chapter I is unveiled. In fact, the first Battleground will come with no less than 10 World Quests – 5 for each faction, giving you a multitude of ways to gain Chapter Points and get your faction ahead.

Introducing Prologues & Battlegrounds

Reveal the world through Explore Mode

Players will quickly discover that Battlegrounds are dangerous places where there is barely time for thought before the ensuing clash of steel. To give you a look at a different side of these zones and experience them fully, every Battleground zone in Prologues will also include Explore Mode.

Under cover of night, you can scout through each zone, discover more about these strange lands and reveal their mysteries – though doing so may well bring threats of its own.

How you can get involved

You can secure your place to be part of the Dawn of the Tyrant: Prologues story right now by becoming a Patron.

Alpha Battlegrounds access will unlock with our $5 per month Tyrant Legionnaire tier, or choose our exclusive First Generation tier to become one of the legendary veteran warriors of the War in Heaven.

We would love to hear your thoughts and feedback as we work though improving gameplay, enhancing the characters and environments of the game world, optimising the various game systems and generally getting things battle-ready for Chapter I.

All of our tiers also include Discord roles, giving you access to the Dawn of the Tyrant Discord server, where you can chat with the team and connect with other players – or simply use the Community tab on Patreon.

      Hello everyone,
      I am currently attending college with a specialization in game programming and development. With the end of my courses coming near, it's about time I reached out to a legitimate game developer forum for knowledge and advice on a variety of topics. The topic I would like to discuss, which is also the one that has grabbed my attention recently, is audio design in games. As we all know, audio is an important aspect of the overall gaming experience. The questions I have are as follows:
      The Playstation 5 is planning on having "3D Audio" built-in without external hardware. Assuming this works similar to something like Dolby Atmos, but more accessible, what with this mean for audio design in the future? Many game dev teams are already tasked with developing for multiple platforms, how will this new technology effect multi-platform development? Will this only be utilized for Playstation 5 exclusives? Footstep audio in player versus player experiences: how much is too much? Many games with pvp experiences place an emphasis on the user character footstep audio over other characters footstep audio. In my experience, this makes finding other players to fight (in the context of a confined space with many areas to hide) a exercise of "stop, listen, and go" to locate them. Theoretically, would increasing enemy footstep audio lead to quicker engagements on the battlefield? Though over-tuning this might be harmful for gamers who are overtly-sensitive of hearing. Voiced in-game elements for the sake of accessibility: worth the cost? I have two brothers with cerebral palsy who play games often, as it's one of the only things they can engage with. Their hearing is great, though they have an extremely hard time reading in-game text that aren't voiced (i.e. in-game items and quest descriptions). Would having something similar to Microsoft Sam read out these elements be worth implementing? Text-to-speech licenses as low as $99 a month exist, which is lower than what I expected.  
      Thanks for reading!

      Hi! I’m an artist working on a 2D mobile platformer Unity game, and recently created a jumping sprite sheet of 6 frames, meant to be run in 12 fps. The programmer in the team sent feedback that the sprite sheet was not smooth, and should be meant to run in 30 fps (mobile) or 60 fps (PC). 
      I’ve never heard of sprite sheet animations done in 60 fps, so I did quite a bit of research on the net, which states some games use variable frame rates, with sprite sheets running at a lower frame rate than the game itself. 
      1. Just wanted to check if this holds true for most games, or if I misunderstood something? 
      2. Is 12 fps not used to animate sprite sheets in 2D mobile platform games?
      Any help is much appreciated, thank you so much!
