Happy April, everyone!
Progress update: the game’s models, animations, vfx, and sounds are done. Other than a few icons, all art assets have been completed. From a design and technical perspective, the game is multiplayer-playable. There are just some bugs and stability issues that need to be fixed before we can begin public alpha testing.
A Tale of Three Kings
Meet the three most powerful beings in Legion TD 2. We’ve re-designed the original king and designed a second one so that each side has a unique king to defend. The west team is loyal to the Sky King, the east team is loyal to the Earth King, and the creatures of Nova serve the Legion Lord. While the Sky King and Earth King vociferously battle for dominance, the Legion Lord lurks in the shadows as the greater threat.
Enchantments are specializations that allow you to spec into a particular strategy or style of play. We’re still toying with the design and will iterate during the later stages of the alpha. As it stands, you will have 5 points to allocate to your enchantments. This number is intentionally small so that each point feels impactful and so that each decision matters. You can allocate 1 point to 5 different enchantment, 5 points to a single enchantment, or anything in between. Speccing multiple points into the same enchantment results in diminishing returns.
