    Look,
    Legs are great - i love legs - they're my favorite
    But sometimes, time is short and budgets are low so you gotta rip em' off y'know?
    The first version of the game had feet but they looked like Penguins so i rip em off too
    Thank you for your robust contribution by the way, i appreciate it

    Look, penguin legs would probably make a great artstyle, you never know till you try it.

    Sounds cool, reminds me of kung-fu chess. I don't think a video for each unit needs to be more than a minute though.

    Heres a new cool biome i'm making its the swamp
    [​IMG]
    So the idea is that if you Queue up with > 5 units, you'll fight in the Forest Biome, which is 11x11
    If you queue up with <= 5 units, you'll fight in the Swamp, which is 7x7 (as seen above)
    The reason is quite simple, fewer units in a big ass map is just boring and not very challenging

    I've been looking for a chess like / turnbased strategy game to play lately.

    If you have a demo or need a play tester let me know. I love these kinds of games.

    I will actually need playtesters, thanks! I'm almost at that point, there's still a few things to do before opening the servers for testers.

    Also, heres the tavern progressing into a neat gif - its low quality but i think it shows nicely how it goes

    Made another Unit Preview video.
    I'm trying to improve on the format really hard... I guess editing is not my forte

    Alright i decided to upload the entire "Unit Preview" into Youtube
    This was good because i kept the format intact and uploading everything at once just felt like taking a good constipated dump all at once
    Enjoy!

    This looks pretty dope actually.

    I'd volunteer for beta but to be honest I don't have much time to actually test anything, so really I'd just be playing it casually. Also, D:OS 2 is out so I gotta go be an undead lizard wizard.

    But the video of you playing someone was p cool, looks like a good pick up n play game with friends.

    Not enough black, too little red. The whites are good.
