Trophy Trial - feedback & questions
Hi folks!

Just want to start a thread to collect feedback on our new game mode 'Trophy Trial'. I've posted an announcement with all the details here:

http://steamcommunity.com/games/317820/announcements/detail/72420586372565695

We're still working on it so it's not quite ready yet, but I'd love to hear any feedback or suggestions anyone has.

Thanks,
Colm

Is this the endlees mode you guys were talking about previously?
Gambrinous  [developer] Dec 22, 2015 @ 3:42pm 
Yep!

Alright immediate impressions.

Overall: Disappointing. I was hoping endless mode would have involved randomly generated dungeons. It looks like it's a variation of the base content.

Charcter selection: 2 classes sound interesting, but if it's just pulling the already established characters (I think it is, I don't know why else they may have battle scares), it makes it seem more like a daily do it and then forget mode to me.

Loot tiers: I don't use the jungle skip ahead because I hate how it has all the loot options from a tier pre-bought. It looks to be the same here.

Random blessing: Could be interesting. Are we talking the 4 blessings avaiable thru the upgrades, fountain blessings, character abilties or preferably a combination of all the above?

Random Fate: Looks cool, sounds like it's what I wish battle scars were.

I don´t even will try this after the battle scars disaster.
Again, give us the posibility to install the older version before battle scars came out.
I haven´t bought that feature and feel betrayed.

Overall: Not going to bring me back to playing the game.

Making it primarily a score attack is an immedate turn off for me. Not giving players the option to pick from all dungeoneers/blessings is a turn off. Not being able to do it within a specific game with just the stuff you've unlocked that game is a minor turn off. Only goal being "Defeat Boss" is a turn off.

Sounds cool, but I'm someone who thinks it's interesting to try to make do with what the game gives me.

Very interesting new way to play. Almost Dungeoneering 2.0! My concern is that the negative and positive Fate effects (particularly the negative ones) will interfere with your stated goal of showing your friends how good you are with a class that they think is terrible.
Effectively you don't have that class in the game any more. Not their vanilla version anyway. The more significant the Fate powers, the more this is true. That's the 'nugget' of the balancing you'll have to do, as I see it anyway.
Sounds cool though! Can't wait to play!

is this still happening?
Gambrinous  [developer] Mar 21, 2016 @ 11:52am 
Yep! It sure is, just everything takes quite a long time as there's only 2 of us here full time

We're working on the iOS version, Trophy Trial, and then starting a new expansion.

I think I'm going to try doing some streaming of Trophy Trial soon so people can see how it's working

To add to what Colm said - if you have any ideas/thoughts about Trophy Trial, we'd love to hear it!

Collectable player skins, everyone weants one and loves 'em. Love you guys!
Gambrinous  [developer] Mar 22, 2016 @ 6:26am 
That's a cool idea actually. I've been thinking a lot about how Trophy Trial will work and it really shines when you CARE about the high score (particularly since it's about pushing your luck).

My current thinking is to have prominent leaderboards showing your rank in TT mode, but as you mention something extra for, say, being the highest scorer with a particular class might be cool.

In a word "SUCKS" just like the majority of the rest of the game.
Chk Chk Boom Mar 23, 2016 @ 5:13am 
yes but it's a good marketing tool, encourages the players to play longer. skins is like cocaine.

how about new building skins, cemetary skins, background skins, new music.. :D

I streamed about an hour of Trophy Trial today, playing a couple of runs and explaining how it's all going to work. You can see the video here:

I'll do this again soon, and next time I'll give you guys some notice here in case you want to tune in.
