It's that wonderful time of year again. That time of year where the cold winter air is filled with the notions of peace on earth and good will towards men (and women). Where childhood innocence fill the hearts of even the coldest and most cynical of individuals.
And what better way to start off the season with a long overdue update. What crazy shenanigans were those french dudes up to that prohibited a whole months worth of news post?
Having your artist stolen and used as slave to help out with this years award is one alibi. However there is more to it then not having your artist being able to churn out whimsical pixel art. Your wonderful coding wizard was up to some clever coding magic and has secretly been working getting the framework built for Raiders of Ragnarok. Yes... we finally have a playable tech demo of the platforming and physics for Raiders.
The engine itself took longer then expected (as with most things planned). However Raiders exists now.
This update is free to all Valkyrie, Settlers, and Chicken users alike. We still need to implement the ability to import your Survivors of Ragnarok save games into raiders which you guys can expect next update.
Luckily for our wonderful community, to make up for a whole months worth of no updates we will be doing an update a week for the whole month of December.
Finally we wanted to let everyone know we aren't immune or resistance to greed what-so-ever. So expect the price of the game to increase next update. If you haven't already now is the perfect time adopt a pig before the inevitable $59.99 price tag.
We hope everyone enjoys raiders and don't forget to vote for us in this years IndieDB Awards!
