Empires & Dungeons 2 – Gameplay changes

September 26, 2010

I’ll use this post to add some news about upcoming gameplay changes. This list is not complete and I am going to add new changes during the time.

  • Dungeon crawling gets you more money (= to make it more worthwhile).
  • You can now carry an unlimited number of weapons, however you will only get one bonus for skill and one for damage (highest automatically used).
  • Weapons can break in combat (that´s why carrying a replacement is a possibility now).
  • Archers cause more damage
  • Cavalry (which are elephants now) cause more damage to archers and catapults
  • All difficulty settings available immediately (so experienced players from E&D 1 can get their challenge).
  • Difficulty settings completely new tweaked. Higher difficulty levels will now be a lot more challenging.

Empires & Dungeons 2 – In Development

September 10, 2010

I am working on a sequel / stand-alone add-on for the game Empires & Dungeons 2.

What it is going to offer (features):

  • New desert/oriental strategy map setting
  • A bigger strategy map (12×11 fields)
  • 12 completely new maps (of which 5 will have new scenarios and about 6 the new desert setting).
  • All maps created new from scratch
  • New medieval/oriental units
  • New music & sound effects
  • Some new artwork required for the new setting
  • Some more general polishment & tweaks

What it is NOT going to be:

  • It´s NOT a completely new game
  • It´s NOT a complete interface change like from Smugglers 3 to Smugglers 4 or TV Manager 1 to TV Manager 2.
  • The underlying game mechanics have NOT changed, but at some points tweaked
  • It´s NOT offering a completely changed setting of monsters or items
  • (and thus…) it´s NOT going to be priced very high, but is supposed to be a very reasonable priced sequel / stand-alone expansion.

Development status:

I did already most of the work required. What´s left is to create some more maps, put everything nicely together and test it throughly. It will most definately be out before Christmas!

And here is the first screenshot:
