Development Updates

We are working on various things as we speak! Nick is atm working on control input, implementing the remaining Joypad controls for some of the UI and fishing. As you know we will support Mouse, keyboard, touch screen and joystick but depending on the platform you play you will not need to select the input method in the config, all inputs are supported at the same time. you can play with keyboard only or have you one hand on the mouse, or play only with mouse or a combination of any of the controls.
Sem is currently working on some optimization, all sorts of cryptic under the hood magic that will make the game run well :D
Mark is working on Story Mission programming and a new minigame feature (we will introduce it sometimes later) and Randis is catching up with his Asset production tasks he had to neglect during the KS and GL campaign.
Many things are happening but a lot of it is not something one can show in screenshots but as soon as we have something more visual to share we will :D Everyone is busy busy :)

Survey rescheduled

On Advice from the community we decided to release the survey later, when we are getting more close to the release dates to avoid possible confusion, changed shipping addresses and such. Same goes for the Slacker Backer survey.
We have also updated and added some additional info to our Slacker Backer Page. If you have questions regarding the Tiers or upgrading an KS Tier via paypal and such you will find all the info there http://dragonfinsoup.com/store.html

As we move forward with our updates we’ll do our best to keep them interesting and engaging. We plan to make more announcements in the near future (Events we will be attending, the Exclusive Pet Familiar poll, Art Contests, Raffles, etc) and to keep sharing with you details about Grimm Bros and Dragon Fin Soup as it evolves! Thank you all once again for being a backer and supporting our dream.

Take care and talk soon!

April 22 - Grimm Bros

Hello Everyone!

We got some rest and we are back to work. The team is now working on asset production and mission scripting for Red Robin, it will take time until we will get started on any of the new features and Morgiana that were unlocked in our Kickstarter campaign but we are very excited to get started and share with you our progress!

The Dragon Fin Soup Slacker Backer campaign is now LIVE!
[dragonfinsoup.com]

http://dragonfinsoup.com/store.html

We created a Slacker Backer Humble Bundle campaign on our Dragon Fin Soup online store for people who want to be a backer but just missed hearing about us and our Kickstater campaign.

As an indie developer we can use all the help we can get to make Dragon Fin Soup a great title for you to enjoy. Thanks to all of our backers Dragon Fin Soup is guaranteed to come out and now any additional funding will potentially go into the main release, but will definitely be available for future expansions!

Thank you all of your support and please consider becoming a backer if you haven't already!

The Grimm Bros - Dragon Fin Soup - Forums are now OPEN!
[Grimm-Bros.com]

http://Grimm-Bros.com/forum

We have now opened up our Dragon Fin Soup forums to the public. All of our backer and supporter are welcome to join and hang out with us!

We would like to use the forums to build our community and to communicate with you and all DFS supporters. Your feedback is really important to us and the forums are a great platform where we can start various fun discussions.

Please keep in mind we are not yet at the point in our development where we can start designing reward features such as the Exclusive Pet Familiar, however this will come a bit later as a locked sub-forum where backers of all tiers that include the exclusive pet reward will gain access and be able to participate in design discussions.

Hope to see you all on our forums to have a virtual beer with us!

April 4 - Grimm Bros

Big Thanks to all our Backers and supporters!

We have reached our third Stretch Goal today and are almost at 300% Funding.
With the new Asian/Oriental Armor Pack we will be adding some exciting and flashy gear to Dragon Fin soup!


The Armor Pack will come with items such as the Lamellar Cuirass, Tankō, Lizard scale armor, Katabira, Mirror Armor, Manju no wa, Chahar-aina, Krug, Tabi, Gappa, Shinobi Shōzoku and others! Many of them will also be craftable so we will add a bunch of new materials and crafting recipes as well! This set will nicely compliment the Weapon pack from the last Stretch Goal and also contain some rare gear and cursed items :)



Dragon Fin Soup at PAX East
We are really excited about showing off Dragon Fin Soup at PAX East. For those of you who can’t make it during the show we will be posting pictures and updates to our Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/TheGrimmBros

Here are few cool fun pics of the booth and schwag we had last year at PAX Prime:



Since we didn’t have the game in a playable state we came up with a fun Real-Life-Roguelike booth mini-game where participants had 10 turns to navigate a randomly generated grid to either take out the Skeleton or go for the chest. Everyone really seemed to love it and we hope to bring the game back in the future.

For PAX East we will have two computers setup with the latest build of Dragon Fin Soup so that you can play the 1st story mission for Red Robin.

Game Info - New Foes



Drone D-12
You can encounter the Drones in in the ancient Temple Ruins. The old maintenance Drones have long forgotten their mission, falling back to their most basic purpose they will attack everything that moves. Being estimated older than 20 thousand years It is a miracle that their are still working at all...



Yolk Crab
The dog sized Yolk crab are commonly found in the Grassfields near swampy regions, hiding in tall grass those grabs usually prey on birds and smaller animals but are also known to attack people when food is scarce. Their tough shells are often used to craft Armor and kitchenware.

Thanks you all of your efforts and support! Please keep pushing to get the word out! The Morgiana Expansion is getting getting closer!

Best,
- Ash & Randis

April 2 - Grimm Bros

The last couple days were slow but it’s picking up again and we are high on spirit!
We can do it together! We are working hard on lining up all our artillery for the last weeks push and will share our plans with you!

Please send us your ideas and suggestions, maybe you know someone who knows someone?
We think it would be a good idea to coordinate our efforts a bit the last week so that instead doing random posts we can time it and post/repost content together to maximize the impact.

Help us out and REPLY to this update to let us know we can count on you!


Here is a drawing of one of the notorious monsters you can encounter in the dark Asura Forests, the Forest Troll.

Game Info - Monsters


Forest Troll
The Forest Troll , also commonly called the Bear Troll is a notorious Monster sometimes sighted in Forests and Caves. The Forest Trolls are extremely powerful and usually hunt alone. They are a rare sight but if you see one, run.


Mosquitte
Genus Humalarius
Being “annoying” does not even remotely cut it describing the presence of those little
f… suckers. They come as large as a Fist and make a sound worse than nails on a chalkboard, not exactly very stealthy and luckily easy enough to kill.


Lesser Sandworm
Mostly found in the vanilla Desert the lesser Sandworm in this stage of development is stationary and will try to devour everything that comes within its range. It has the ability to spit rocks at his prey, trying to stun it (kinda dumb right? they stun you and then they can’t actually move to come closer)

Morgiana Cosplay
Randis’s wife Mae, showing us her support and interest in Dragon Fin Soup by doing a cosplay of Morgiana dressed as a dancer! That cheered us up big time and will hopefully excite you about the Morgiana Expansion as well!



Thanks you all for your ideas, support and feedback! Lets all work together and really get the word out about Dragon Fin Soup and hit those Stretch Goals!
