Dev Blog #2 – Revamping Some Stuff

Game dev is a process of continuous iteration, so we have been revamping some of the stuff you saw last week.

Here are the highlights from today’s stream!

We talk about the limiting factors such as gold, mana, control points (and unit cooldowns) to prevent the problem of steamrolling in strategy games.

We also have a brand new main screen! Still being made, but what do you think of it so far?

The banner and description would change depending on the menu selected. We’ve also added a section below to announce updates, livestreams, and other news. This section will be replacing the annoying pop-up notifications that we had in Legends of Callasia. We’ve also added icons linking to some of our social media pages on the upper right corner, while the full list would be available in the Community menu.

So that’s it. Things will continue to change, and we’ll continue to share them. Til next week’s stream, only on the Ninesquirrels Twitch channel!


Weekly development stream starts April 19 10PM EST

After sharing exclusive info to our Discord community, throwing out some hints, and showing it to some of our fans during PAX East, we’re happy to officially announce the title for our new project!

Last Regiment is a fantasy-themed strategy game with single-player campaigns and simultaneous turn-based multiplayer, which we are currently developing on PC, and hopefully on Mac and mobile as well. It takes the best parts of Legends of Callasia, makes a bunch of neat changes for a faster, deeper, and more strategic game, and allows player to design their own levels through its built-in map editor.

The game is still in its alpha stage, but we are opening its development progress and livestreaming it on Twitch! The weekly dev stream by Boomzap Creative Director Christopher Natsuume starts on April 19 10PM EST at twitch.tv/ninesquirrels!

As another sneak preview, here’s a headshot of our lead character, Olivia.

This character is (obviously) based on Olivia from Legends of Callasia. We thought she was such an awesome character there, that we wanted her lead in our new game. So we have redone her, given her a new story, background, and costume, and brought her in as the leading lady for our new game.

In more fun behind-the-scenes fun: she is originally based on Chris’ niece. She is a beautiful girl now celebrating her 3rd birthday, and became part of their family back when we were making Legends of Callasia.
