End of Act I: The Secret Library Released

End of Act I: The Secret Library Released

After all these years we are now releasing the Secret Library - final quest location which completes story arc of Act I: the Jack of Swords of Totem Tribe II: Jotun.

I hope we have managed to make it unique and not too similar to other areas already present in the game so let us know if we have succeeded in that regard.

For more info on the Secret Library see the previous news post.

Let us know what you think about this quest location. Detailed feedback is essential for us to determining how important those story locations are for the players and whether we should focus on them or on something else.

Please post first impressions in the comments here and fill up the detailed survey when you beat it.

Also let us know what should we focus on next:

  1. A new victory type
  2. A set of random quest locations like mines and dungeons.
  3. Next story location in Act II
  4. Fixing bugs and other problems
  5. Something else / Your suggestion.

Maybe I will make more comments later, probably not, for now I just wonder: how did you manage to make new artworks without your artist ?

Don't underestimate me. First couple of games I have made completely on my own, including artwork :)

That's what I though it could be, but I didn't know you could be good enough for that, I mean for creature habitats and ruins it was just recycling old artworks and merging them together, well done then.

For next, I'd like to see either space age or expansion victory, it's a bit hard to know which one I'd prefer because of unknown factors: maybe space age would be much longer to be created, maybe you can't go as far as making the artworks yourself, maybe it's not that interesting and spending months from stone age to reach it would be disappointing, and I don't know what expansion victory is about other than just getting many cells also, and I hope it wouldn't be broken like war victory.

We have more artwork than actually released in the game. The rest can be adapted existing art.

You tell him Bers, most of us know you are not just a pretty face :D

Thanks for all your hard work completing Act 1 :)), while I am eager to get into the library at last alas it won't be before tomorrow.

Keep in mind, that if you are playing the Secret Library via established hero that have beaten the ruins, chances are you are skipping some puzzles due to "advantages" you have obtained in the ruins.
Reaching the Secret Library it with a fresh hero is the "intended" way and the quest location would be longer and more complicated, because you will have to find the way to actually overcome most obstacles.

Doing it with a fresh hero should be more interesting, but might be harder in terms of puzzles, etc.

TL;DR Play Secret Library with a young hero to experience it the way it is meant to be played.

Game mechanics.  

Chat tabs and reports.  Would really like in game notifications and Common chat, to be seperate tabs.  Or different colour/fonts/size.

Would like to opt out, of some reports and notifications.

Alliance, would like non urgent chat (gossip and game play questions) and War Talk (incoming attacks and outgoing attacks talk) to be seperate tabs.  Our AC has hundreds of messages a day.

Not sure how people on mobile cope, if it's already TMI (Too Much Information) on PC and desktops.

Hero gear inventory, an easier way, to dispose of surplus equipment.

Hi there;

I did this end of chapter and here is what I think :

Nice place and you did a serious work (thank you for this).

I enjoy the puzzles inside and especially the one with the paintings.

The ultimate boss is really too hard (Jack). I did several tries with a hero level 33 (195 of attack with Martial Art). My hero died 3 times with : more than 60 horsemen, 13 chariots and 30 swordmen (I died in 4 sec). I tried lonely with weapons (I died in 1 sec) and without and MA (I died in 1 sec). 

So here is what I think about this end: the final boss is really too hard to kill and tons of heroes never reach the level 50. My friends owning a hero level 50 told me it was very hard and made several tries. FInally, I guess that more than 75% of heroes will never reach this end. This extreme difficulty is really silly.

For the next step of this game, I hope we could enjoy the main story with the chapter 2 growing.

Best regards.

At the end of Act 1, after sphere and villian leave, a speech bubble remains to the left of sphere's location. Unable to determine why it is still there. Anyone know?

In the next update I will reduce his armor from 50 to 25 which should make it easier for lower tier units to fight him, thus making it more managable for lower level heroes.
