Enola: Prelude reaches new milestone.

We have been working hard on Enola: Prelude recently and thought it would be good to share some of the progress with you. We are currently levelling the game, making sure that all the enemies and player abilties have the correct mana cost and deal the right amount of damage. This is a laborious process, however we are glad to report that about 75% of the levelling required is complete.

This process is taking a long time because RPG’s contain a lot of numbers that need to be balanced correctly. There are 16 player spells in the game, and lots of enemies with multiple attacks that all need to be individually balanced. This is no mean feat considering the number of battles and spells in the game, however we expect to have the first round of balancing complete by 22nd Septemeber 2012.

Critical bug fixes have been implemented in the last few days, and we are excited about the progress of Enola: Prelude. Initial user testing highlighted some flaws, but we are already working on improvements for some of the suggestions and overall feedback has been very positive. Once balancing is complete, the Enola: Prelude will be very close to uploading to Flash Game License and looking for sponsorship. The next few days will require a lot of development hours, but we are sure the results will be worth the effort. We can not wait to release this game!

Enola: Prelude World Map Creation Time Lapse

Jimp has been hard at work recently creating the world map screen for Enola: Prelude. He recorded his screen while working on it, so you can watch 4 hours of development in 12 minutes! The initial recording was 32gb, so rendering the final video took some time….

Blackberry are currently offering free Signing Keys for mobile and tablet devices.

If you are interested in porting your Flash content to the newly released Playbook, or you want to make content for any of Blackberrys handsets, then you need signing keys to be able to do so. Apple currently charge developers $100 a year for access to their app store, however Blackberry are currently giving the keys away for free in a bid to increase the amount of content on their store. Even if you have no immediate plans to create content for either their mobile or tablet products, it still makes good sense to pick up some keys for them while they are free.
