Very nice and congratulations on getting one of the OGs!

Nice! The original 1930's Dracula himself.

Very nice and congratulations on getting one of the OGs!

Special thanks to PlotTwist, who created the Lich boss seen in the trailer. He also helped with the initial design of the Dracula boss battle sprites. I hope we can work together again on future projects!

Looks like the game greatly improves from previous progress reports. Looking forward to see how it will end up being.

Slightly off topic, but there is huge uproar in the game development community over recent announcements made by Unity:

https://www.gamedeveloper.com/business/unity-to-start-charging-fee-pegged-to-game-installs

Carpathian Night is made in Unity, so this is big news for us. My personal take is that I do not see how these new fees for developers are legally or technically feasible, and Unity will likely roll back this announcement, but the damage has been done and I've completely lost my trust for Unity. It's a terrifying feeling to suddenly realize that years of work and investment in your creative passion project can be held at the mercy of greedy corporate decision making. Hard lesson learned. 

My advice to anyone thinking about diving into a game development project? Don't go with Unity. Carpathian Night will likely be the only Unity game Tezcatek ever makes. This experience will likely push us toward open source solutions in the future.

Wow  :rollseyes:

Corporate Bulls**t at it's finest. It's a real shame there's no 'Dragon hunting' allowed anymore. Back in the day when higher-ups like corrupt royals and elites were executed because they dared move against the people. Sadly, the laws that protect us also protect them too. Talk about a bum wrap.

Is it possible to relocate the game as-is to another engine? Transfer the code or something to that effect?

We are way too far into development for that, Carpathian Night is forever a Unity game.

One more convention (Retropalooza 10) appearance before release! And we also won Best Indie Dev of the convention again. Had a great time, as always.

We are getting close to finishing the early Kickstarter build for our backers! Again, this build will contain the entire main campaign, minus a few storytelling elements still in development. Expect a big announcement within the next couple of weeks.

Sharpen your oak stakes! This long journey is finally nearing its end!
