Well, here we go! After wanting to do this game for so long, we’re finally moving forward! We’ll update the DEVblog weekly (at least try to) and keep the forums running constantly. Feel free to come over anytime and take a peek at what we’re doing…even comment and give your suggestions. We welcome them.
This game is FOR the many Archon fans out there, so your input is imperative to the success of the game. If you don’t remember Archon, or have never played it, it is one the best games ever made. It features a chess-like board where you take turns with your opponent moving pieces around. Each piece has different powers and abilities. Once you “challange” your opponent for a square, it really gets exciting. Instead of simply taking the square and removing the opponents piece from the board, the square opens up into an arena where your two pieces fight it out.
The great thing about this game is it gives the “pawn” piece a fighting chance against a “queen” piece if you’re good with it. This is because the color of the square you fight on matters a lot. There is a “Light” team and a “Dark” team. When pieces fight, they have less power on the opposite color of square…so it is entirely possible for a “pawn” piece to have as much health as a “queen” piece if they right on the pawn’s color of square.
Anyway, take a look around…register on the forums and participate, Let us know you’re out there and how you like the game. This website will be a “work in progress” for a couple of days this week, but we hope to have it finished by the new year, so please forgive our dust (broken links, pages unfinished, etc.) Thanks!
