Adventuring Sheep, Murderous Mummies & New DFS Wiki... Oh My!
Crowdfunding Update

Grand Total raised to date: $125,940 (Including Adjustments & Add-ons)

Development Update

It has been a great week and the team was able to get a LOT of things done.

Diagonal Walking was added to keyboard and pad controls both as 4 separate keys and also by pressing 2 of the up/down/left/right keys. A new option was added to the config where you can now toggle auto attack on or off. Traditionally, many RL games trigger attack with the directional buttons; in our game, however, since we have tall walls and tall props, you can often accidentally attack things when you walk around. With the auto attack mode off (by default), you now have to press an attack button on your joypad or keyboard to perform an attack, like in an action RPG, basically. Opening doors still works with the directional keys and the mouse controls have not changed since they work differently all together.

New sprites were created for the Playable Sheep (aka “Adventuring Sheep”) and we have also added more playable monsters to the labyrinth and survival mode. Now you can be a murderous Mummy out for carnage :D





We know we have not yet reached the next stretch goal but we now added the playable undead characters anyway! Enjoy, and we hope to see you on our forums - http://grimm-bros.com/forum/

Cheers!

Labyrinth Mode & Playable Sheep Update!
Crowdfunding Update
Grand Total raised to date: $125,835 (Including Adjustments & Add-ons)


Dev Update
The team is working hard on the Endless Labyrinth Mode, we are making good progress there, it is already playable and some of the characters are unlockable.

Playing with the sheep will be pretty tough as you will not be able to equip weapons and most of the armor except for the earrings, rings, arm wrist and body slots. The sheep will still be able to use magic, crafting even and buy and sell things to vendors, it is after all an intelligent sheep that wears a scarf :P

We are also working on a surprise feature that was part of some stretch goal we did not reach but we decided to add it anyway so Randis been working on some weekends on that one. Things are pretty busy but we are making good progress.

Here a sneak peek screenshot for you, the look of the labyrinth will change of course, those are just placeholder assets.



Now that its summer in many parts of the world its starting to getting pretty hot outside!
Try to stay cool and as always please share with us any ideas, thoughts, and feedback on the DFS forums http://grimm-bros.com/forum/

Best,
- Randis & Ash

Description
Release date: FALL 2014


DFS is a classic console style RPG in development by indie studio Grimm Bros which blends together Tactical Action & Roguelike elements set in a charming, twisted, dark, fairy tale inspired world.

Key Features:
  • Gorgeous 2D Fairy Tale World in Full HD
  • Procedurally Generated Dungeons
  • Tactical Decision Making
  • Form parties with NPCs
  • Deep RPG Combat Systems
  • Extensive Crafting & Armory
  • Mini-Games such as Fishing & Rune Tracking
  • Day & Night cycles with random weather

Fluid Gameplay: Dragon Fin Soup is a hybrid experience that combines both turn-based dungeon crawl exploration and JRPG elements. Our goal was to create a turn-based RPG that lets the player set the pace, a tactical and yet action based gameplay.

Game Modes: We offer 3 distinct game modes in Dragon Fin Soup. You can choose to unravel the tale of your chosen character in Story Mode, embark on a journey to discover the wilds of Asura in Survival Mode, or boldly enter the deadly endless Labyrinth Mode for high scores and achievements!

Twisted Fairy Tales: In Dragon Fin Soup there are no lame stereotypical heroes, instead we feature flawed characters each with their own unique abilities and motivations. Our first tale begins with Red Robin, whose dark bloody past has come back to haunt her with a vengeance...

About Grimm Bros: We are an indie studio of veteran devs. Our small team has been working on Dragon Fin Soup for over a year with the help and support of our amazing friends and family. We have 3 great programmers, a freelance composer, and one guy who is doing ALL the graphics, sfx, and design!

Please share with us your feedback and consider backing us as a Slacker Backer[dragonfinsoup.com] so we can make the best game possible!

I didn't see DFS until late May, so I was too late for kickstart. I did however do a slacker backer. This was the first time I Ever supported/bought a game before release or at least open access. I really liked the looks of the game and can't wait for it to hit.
