AND, SOME SCREENSHOTS






Happy Holidays and have a Happy New Year too everyone! Enjoy the demo! :D

TAR 1st Public Demo Release!
NEW AREAS
  • Dalwood


    The preliminary forest, down river from the Town, makes an appearance. Of course, the full forest will encompass a lot larger area than what will be playable in the first public demo.
  • Town Graveyard




    This scene, you’ve been dying to see, is accessed from the Town as well.

NEW ITEMS & IMPROVEMENTS
  • New Herbs & Ingredients

    (First pass of these herbs and seeds. Includes: parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds.)
    Destroying pumpkins or sunflowers, will drop their corresponding seeds.

    (Other ingredients, all WIP.)
  • Item Improvements

    Clothes items are now folded up, instead of being solid upright sitting t-poses or standing pants, like the following:
    (Those be some stiff pants!)
    (The shields have been retextured for the Public Demo.)

TRAPS
Treasure chests throughout Terradim can now be locked and/or trapped!

Previously, Jon had setup a simple trap in the Playground scene, but has since come up with a better solution for randomizing traps/locks everywhere.

HORSEBACK CONTROLS

  • Pressing ‘forward’ causes the horse to accelerate. The horse will maintain its current speed even when ‘forward’ is released, ‘back’ slows the horse down.
    ‘left/right’ steers the horse, which is more effective at slower speeds.
  • Holding ‘back’ while stationary will make the horse step backwards.
  • If you attack, you will attack on the side your camera is facing relative to the horse.
Also horses now stop on scene-load/start, to prevent the immediate galloping into another portal/warp.

MENU IMPROVEMENTS
  • UI inventory spotlight & reflection probe: you can now see your inventory items when in the dark and/or at nighttime.
    (Before they were as dark as the background.)
  • You can no longer jump into other players’ select panels in the Player Setup scene, fixing bug.
  • There's now a countdown in the player setup scene if all players are ready. Game will begin after countdown, if no player cancels their ready status.

NOTABLE MISC IMPROVEMENTS
  • Cave dwellers/Ruffians in the cave, now carry light sources (such as torches).
  • Newly created player characters now start with clothes… It’s about time! :)
  • New pedestals found in the Water Cave hint at its secrets.
  • Doors can now be locked or unlocked by interacting with their locks.
  • Ragdolling in water improvements:
    • Ragdolls now update their drag, in addition to gravity when entering water.
    • Ragdolls can now repeatedly enter and exit water. Previously being blown out of the water, a ragdolling character would retain the “space-like gravity event” through the air, until the failsafe timer was met (as you could never be grounded).
    • Ragdolls are no longer sucked to the ground when recovering in water.
  • Birches

    (WIP) Especially the bark.
    At the moment, it is not climbable like the maples or cone. We’ll have to improve our climbing system, adding support for curved/angular trunks, to allow this to happen.

Description
In The Arcane Relics™, you are cast into the land of Terradim – a land full of wonder, mystery, & great danger. Assume the role of any type of character you wish in this wacky fantasy-medieval sandbox experience, featuring 4-player split-screen mayhem!

Features: 
  • Local/Couch Co-op (with up to 4 local players)
  • Strategic combat: directional attacks (chop, thrust, overhead, & backhand), landing attacks on specific limbs and crippling them (hindering opponent), blocking, and dodging (rolling/crouching).
  • Equip armor pieces to protect your individual limbs from harm, weighing protection vs. mobility.
  • Create your own character: choosing your hairstyle, gender, starting attributes, and even your dominant hand! Lefties rejoice!
  • Inventory system: equip weapons/apparel, consume potions, and take/store items inside containers.
  • Ridable mounts: horses and people! Ride into battle on your friend’s shoulders!
  • A selection of items to choose from, including: a Hood with liripipe, bombs, Great helm, Potion of Greatness, Claymore, & more!
  • Interactivity: Pickup and throw crates & barrels, sit in chairs, lay in bed, place or take torches from wall mounts, and more!
  • In development, more to come!

The end goal of this project is to make a dynamic fantasy sandbox with hand-crafted environments and an emphasis on cooperative multiplayer. The game is currently in a pre-alpha state.

Feel free to give us some feedback and even some suggestions to ideas you'd like to see in The Arcane Relics™!

I REALLY want to know if I could ride on top of friends that are already riding another players shoulders. I haven't even seen this games full potential and I'm already dying to play this game.

People are really here talking about graphics, Since when is a good game based off graphics? :steamfacepalm:

Looks great but I think it's too ambitious for a small studio to pull off.
