Welcome to another preview of TimeShuffle as it progresses in its pre-alpha stage. Our game team had a productive month, which would not be possible without our community of early game testers.
We are back with an even more substantial game development preview, this time based on our experience with the first pre-alpha tournament.
We look back at the highly successful, first ever sneak peek for early game users. We brought together 150 participants in a short competition, while tracking the event live on Discord. The next sneak peek tournament will be on August 18.
We thank our community and social media followers for the interest and participation in our pre-alpha tournaments. Each time we test the gameplay, we receive a lot of feedback and use it to improve and polish TimeShuffle.
We worked on improving game performance and making it more CPU-efficient. The team also fixed server crashes and created more safety nets.
Since the sneak peek tournament, we closed a total of 50 various polish-related tasks, including:
Our team worked on the in-game Artificial Intelligence. It will be used in an upcoming PvE campaign, and also as a training ground before joining tournaments with other players. The AI logic in TimeShuffle is based on weighted chances for each Skill to be selected and played. The evaluation of each character Skill is based on the potential damage/effect it could produce, as well as the available targets.
We also implemented 7 additional Skills. The balance of Skills is at the heart of TimeShuffle strategies and the best Hero usage in battle.
Skills will belong to specific Heroes depending on the Hero’s character type and Profession .
Stay tuned on our Discord and social media for more updates and development milestones.
