Time for another Last Regiment update as we are just a few weeks away until Early Access on Steam. It’s literally crunch time for us here.
On last week’s stream, Chris is still in Singapore at Boomzap’s VR Studio and shared that everyone is working double time getting ready for the Early Access release. The primary highlight this week is the introductory part of the game: the tutorial.
There have been some rework and a couple of discussions in regards to the tutorial. To make it not only something for first time players to get to know about the game’s lore, but also showing how everything works while keeping the fun going. The rest of the stream continues with him discussing about the “emotional side of being a game developer” and making the game’s pace faster especially on multiplayer games. Halfway through the stream, he is joined in with the Last Regiment game design team going through the campaigns.
