Bare Mettle  [developer] Jan 10, 2018 @ 3:02am 
To clarify, combat became far too much of a focus in terms of development, since the moment the first playable builds were released. Clearly the combat is what appeals most to many people, and what the community has been most vocal about, but the constant improvements to combat and animation put everything else on hold for far too long. It was never our intent to make an entirely combat focused game, but an immersive RPG with many other qualities. Right now we're focusing on getting other parts of the game up to speed, without these other features we were completely unable to further the story and release more content.

In order to continue the game's story and release the remaining levels we need dialogue, more complex NPC behaviours and thaumaturgy. This is now basically complete and we can look at actually finishing the game. Certainly while implementing these features, particularly the AI and behaviour stuff, the future applications in SG were a strong focus, which is largely the reason why the update has been taking this long.

Besides this, I think you'll find the general improvements to both existing and upcoming content are quite substantial.

Combat and related elements is something that will continue to be worked on, and we have some very interesting plans for these features. In general, even once Exanima reaches a point where it can be considered complete, it will continue to receive improvements and benefit from the work being done for SG.

Awesome :) Hope to see the first forms of thaumaturgy soon (by soon I mean - this year) ^^ I wish you good luck Bare Mettle :)

I just found out about this game (from medieval weapons youtube streamer Skallagrim) and after watching a few videos of the gameplay decided to go ahead and get the early access, Ive been playing for oh 10 days or so just a little each evening, learning in the practice arena, poking around just a little with the dungeon itself (took me a week to realize the quest auto saves when you quit as I tended to die) and I have to say, freaking amazing.

I am finally at the point where I can somewhat confidently defeat the first half dozen or so practice opponents, and Ive started making progress in the arena. Not far mind, I have 3 fighters plus my main, all inept but one with one combat skill achieved, but just getting this far has been very fun/engrossing. I should mention Ive been a gamer for 30+ years and this is the first time in a LONG while that I think about a game when Im not playing it, or gone out of my way to mention its existence to gamer friends.

So I just dropped by to say: nice work devs, this game is certainly something else, can't wait to experience the whole thing!
