BattleCON Unleashed - Weekly Updates!

Another week has gone by, and we've got great progress to report on BattleCON!

First off, here's a look at some new art!

Dolores Malephaise

The third stretch goal fighter in our little kickstarter project is a fighter named Dolores Malephaise! She first appeared in Empyreal: Spells & Steam as the captain of the Afterworld Express.

In Empyreal, she was content to have her ghostly trains carry wayward travelers to the Well of Souls. In BattleCON, she takes a more aggressive role, unleashing her true, nightmarish form and venturing forth to gather the souls of heroes firsthand.

Progress Update

Last week, we did a bunch of proofing for the cards in BattleCON: Devastation! I'm happy to report that most issues were addressed. We're making a final proofing pass this week to clean everything up, and then we'll be ready for press (at least, with all the cards in the game). 

We've also put the promotional fighters into proofing, and hope to have those finished up soon. The last piece that remains after that is the patch cards for War and Fate. Once we complete those three tasks, we'll be gameplay-complete!

Regarding the character guides—they've been on my list for three weeks straight now. We got the text for all of the fighters themselves, but the overarching plots still require writing. We hope to get those plots finished up this week, and I'll keep you updated on that progress. Nevertheless, it's easy to see how something that seems small can end up taking a bit longer than expected, since there are a lot of moving parts under the hood.

Here's a look at what we're doing this week:

  • Lay out text into the character guides.

  • Final proof pass on Devastation Fighters.

  • Tuckboxes for patch fighters from War and Fate.

  • First draft of patch cards for War and Fate.

We'll see where we get on these tasks next week! In the meantime, feel free to post any questions or comments for me below!
