  • Simple sound effects
  • Blacksmith, ballista and first-aid tent
  • Obelisks and treasure hunting
  • More and better artifacts
  • Finalize fortress faction
  • Improvements to spellcasting in battle - pausing the game while casting and showing off spell cooldowns
  • New map generation, allowing for smaller and larger maps, 2-6 players, etc.

I like how it looks but the fonts are really microscopic. It is hard to see anything on the city screen. Also do you plan to give more control in combat?


Hm, I'll see if I can improve readability on the town screen somehow. Perhaps using my tooltips, I can move some details over...

Control in combat! Good question! I don't believe I should, really - safe for making it easier to cast spells, which give some sort of control. Unless you convince me otherwise ;)

do you have an email for receiving bug reports?
