Hero Tower Defense Thursday: Day 15 - HTD Thursday's, Progress Update, and Happy Thanksgiving!



Go here to read the Day 14 of Hero Tower Defense Tuesdays.

Today is just a small update since it's Thanksgiving. I just wanted to give a brief rundown of our progress and some changes.

First, a reminder about the HTD day change. Sam was posting the PTD post later in the week at first but recently has been posting it on Monday because it works out better with his current scheduling of the weekly PTD update. Having the PTD post on Monday then immediately having the HTD post on Tuesday squishes things together. To remedy the problem we're going to change things a bit and have the PTD post on Monday and the HTD post on Thursday to have a better spread on the blog.

Next up I just want to say we're making pretty good progress on HTD and should make the late December release date as planned. We have some additional maps (the cave is multi-level) in the works by Kevin, Sam is adding more mechanics and features, and I'm working on the design of various things including the Tier 1 elemental and class moves and audio. So things are moving along nicely!

You can find more behind-the-scenes HTD art work on Kevin's blog, KXN @ HTD, check it out!

And last but not least (although it's a little late) Happy Thanksgiving!

All feedback is welcome and encouraged! You guys are a lot of help so be sure to let us know of any suggestions or ideas you have in the comments and thanks for all your help thus far!

  9. Hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving. You've got some nerve not giving a full on posting on the first day of HTD Thursday, but I guess we can forgive you this one time. :P

    Can't wait for the game to come out. And December is in just a few days so the time for release is drawing near. :) Yippee!

  10. Suggestion

    In Avatar chat, add an unignore command. And let us be able to friend people, it doesn't have to give up special perks, but it does let us know who is cool with us.

  30. Thanks for the support everyone, you guys are awesome! I'll have a full post on HTD this Thursday.

    Also for those asking when HTD is coming out, we're shooting for some time in late December. It'll basically be just like a prototype of what we have so far; think pre-alpha. So while there won't be much you can do at first, that's kind of the point because we want to get all your feedback as we develop it.
