What You May Have Missed in the Teaser

The teaser released Monday for Author Adventure may have been short on gameplay, but it did show a few features in the game that you may not have noticed.

Scrolling Clouds

All of the battle scenes in the trailer showcase the Overworld location which has a mountain range in the background. However, you may not have noticed that the clouds actually move across the sky. This was done to add constant movement to the battle. During the majority of any particular battle something will more than likely be animating, but on the off chance that none of the participants are, (such as while selecting spells) the clouds will always be moving. As opposed to simple, static images, the battle feels “alive”.

Another small addition to the game was randomly placed scenery during battle. While not a big deal at all, it makes the battle at least seem like it is occurring at different locations in the world

Enemies

Out of the twelve enemies shown, 8 of them are meant to be from specific books. The other enemies were created before we had officially decided that all enemies would be based on antagonists from novels. They will either be removed or altered for the final release to keep Author Adventure consistent.

Spells

During the battle sequences Twain and Shakespeare are both seen scrolling through their list of spells. Each spell they currently have equipped is based on an actual book. While the spell could change the final version, this will give you some idea what we are going for in terms of spells. More information will be revealed about our book-based combat soon.

And a random trivia fact: The song used for the trailer is actually two separate songs. The first song was meant to be an “opening theme” and the second was a random song created by Allan which he dubbed “Wild West” because the pattern of the backbeat was meant to resemble the beat of a horse running.
