Temple Update Progress & WIP Bondi Gameplay Vlog

Our local mutated groundhog hamster walrus has come out and provided you all with a dev vlog! First to make its appearance in the video is tw_temple, a PVKII classic created by Crazytalk, that is now getting an update from soon-to-be-developer Schatzmeister! Starting with the caves, Schatz has carved in assets contributed by Yanzle (cs_castle, de_resort), to give the area a much needed visual enhancement that really just rocks and rolls. This is indeed an eeriely, beautiful upgrade that does the classic proud!

And of course, our next class to be released, the Viking Bondi, makes his appearance in the video. After being excellently modeled by Corvalho, we have begun testing the Bondi in its early alpha stages. While it is our primary focus to continue to polish PVKII short-term, we are aiming to release classes to the community sooner than we have in the past.

Enjoy Temple progress and WIP Bondi Gameplay in the video below:

Animation

We have the pleasure of working with a new Authorized Creator in Links, a very passionate animator, who is helping us add necessary polish to our character classes and gameplay.

    So poisen arrows as the special?

    I LIKE IT!!

    I guess the raven swarm is for another class. *cough* viking healer *cough*.

    And talking about specials....any monkey summons? No? Ok i'l keep waiting. It would be weird for a monkey to have a pet monkey anyway....

    Good job, guys!

    And as I understand, poison somehow stops health regen from pickups?

    No, It's a HUD glitch by yours truly... The poison HP rot uses same method with food regen and HUD gets confused. Need to revisit that in code.

    Nice! Looking forward to watching as the game becomes bigger and better.

    And a few questions about the Poison Arrow Special: From what I can tell, you get three poison arrows per full Special bar? And when you actually use the Special, is there a sort of "readying time", like how the Captain has to reload his Blunderbuss before using the Cannonball, or does it instantly activate the poison effect?

    Wow super stoked! Love the poison arrow idea. Keep up the good work!

    Obviously you guys have placeholder stuff for now, but would the Bondi's seax be the same range as the Archer's sword? Or somewhere in-between the SS dagger and the Archer sword? That's what I gathered from the concept art.

    We are planning to add animations of Bondi preparing the poison arrows, but as of now we're still discussing about the class and weapons' stats and ways to balance the vikings now that they have a strong ranged arsenal. Plus, Corvalho is still working on the first person hand models.

    After activating special, Bondi gets 3 poison arrows that can be fired freely. Currently he gets those instantly but we are planning to add preparing animation. Also while you have poison arrows, you can switch weapons but can't gain special until all arrows have been fired.

    When will you be able to switch to the rifle when you have no ammo to prepare the special as a sharpshooter?

    Ability to special with all weapons has been implemented (thank Spirrwell). It's coming in 3.4 if there's no major problems.
