Dragon Fin Soup
May 12, 2014 - Grimm Bros

Hey Everyone,
Hope you all had a great and relaxing weekend. Here are some new updates!

Crowdfunding tracker and next Stretch Goal!
We have finally been able to setup a counter which tracks all of the backers and funds raised from our Kickstater and Slacker Backer campaign on our Dragon Fin Soup website - http://dragonfinsoup.com/store.html Please keep in mind the counter does not include any adjustment or add-ons to pledges as we track those manually.

Here is our Grand Total raised so far! $124,935
(Including Adjustments & Add-ons)

As you can see we are almost ½ way to our next stretch goal! With the next Stretch Goal we will be adding playable Zombies and Mummies as in Survival Mode and Endless Labyrinth! In addition we will be adding the Ancient Tech Armor Set!

The maximum % damage bonus is of course capped and hitting plants or props does not count as a hit (unless a hit is caused by a falling tree) Multi-hit weapons generate more hits of course. The combo counter will be located on the right of the screen, right under the mini map.

Thanks everyone for your support and as always please feel free to send us any ideas, suggestions, feedback or questions :)

Take care and talk soon!

Hi Everyone,
We hope you all had a great week!

We are happy to see so many familiar names on the DFS Forums!
If you have not yet registered, here is the link: http://grimm-bros.com/forum/

Meet the Pudding!
Nope, this is not food, the pudding is a cunning predator!
The Pudding monster is a close relative of the slime family and is commonly found in the vanilla Desert.
Tempting random strangers into eating some randomly found pudding off the ground may not sound like a great strategy but you would be surprised how many actually fall for it.
Don’t let the yummy look and smell fool you!



Cactura
The great Cactura of the family Cactaceae is a plant commonly found in the Vanilla Desert.
They grow to be as tall as 3 meters and are sometimes harvested for their needles.
Cacturas can be utilized in combat and deal decent damage to whoever stands in the way when they fall over.

Development Updates
Still working on various the control inputs, making great progress there, pad controls are working for the most part of the game but will need more tuning. Fun controls are very important so we are not rushing it.
We started some asset production for a palace and another village, lot’s of work to be done… Will share some screenshots when we have more final results, this will take some time. More optimization, tweaks and bugfixing happened this week, also some new, additional gameplay designs were made. (Random encounter with Bandits)
Jade is working on a new music track for a new Sakura Forest level, a new location that will be added with Morgiana.
Much work, very concentrate, so ongoing, wow!

Take care and talk soon!

Also make sure to post in the following thread after registering to get you green colored username and access to the VIP forum! http://grimm-bros.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=77

As the community is slowly growing we are having a great time reading all the feedback and suggestions. Feel free to drop by and ask us anything about the game or share your own ideas with everyone like in this thread for example where we are collecting some ideas for fun weapons :)
http://grimm-bros.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=93
There are other interesting Threads regarding various DFS features as well! Check it out!



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!

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!
