Hi everyone, it's been a busy week for me considering I've got various projects to work on, my job to attend as well as the release of Ender Story: Chapter 1. The support we've received for the release has been amazing and it's also my first Newgrounds Daily Feature! Thank you to everybody who gave the game good scores, reviews and to all of you who simply just played and enjoyed it. Myself, Cat and Matt are all very grateful to have seen everything go so well for this game.
My main focus at the minute is continuing work on Enki Adventures (see my previous post for more details) with Nick as the vast majority of the artwork for Ender Story: Chapter 2 is finished already. Just to give you the general jist of thing, it's a roguelike action-adventure game based around the mechanics of the 2D Zelda games with plenty of our own spins and additions.
As for Chapter 2 of Ender Story, we're taking a short break for the rest of the month on that series and as soon as March rolls around we'll be back at it. We're aiming for a summer release and considering that I've finished about 90% of the art for the game already and we have the engine in place from the first chapter, that should be achievable. The programming for the second chapter hasn't officially started yet, but I've still got some screenshots and info that I can share for those of you who've commented in reviews about the second chapter and also for those who've sent me private messages asking about it.
The game takes place in the neighbouring region of Ederra, Arandor. It's a region that's about 60% desert with plenty of ancient ruins to come across. We'll be delving further into the role-playing aspects of the game giving you more choices you can make to help define who Erion is to you. Will you make him a righteous hero or will you make him a bit more ruthless and cruel as time goes on?
There'll be four new party members that can join your group, three of which can be seen here, as well as brand new locations and strange side quests that can lead to big rewards, if you play your cards right. The party members will all of their own motives for joining you as you hunt down the one called Sceptre and his allies. Not all of the party members will be obtained through the main story, as in the first game, so it will benefit you to explore areas off the beaten path to build as big of a team as you can.
Unlike in the first game, the summons will be more plentiful and have various abilitie that will come in useful. Levelling them up will be less tedious as there are new ways to gain SP for each summon. There will also be a variety of new creatures which offer you more SP for using your summon in battle so don't worry about grinding them too much.
The bestiary will be massively expanded in Chapter 2. You'll fight many strange creatures both natural, like the Swam Dragon (pictured above), and unnatural like the first of the titular Enders (I'll say no more ont his one). Your arsenal of attacks and abilities will expand too with new weapon types such as spellbooks and axes as well as the use of your new summons that you can obtain. The new characters will have different strengths such as Kara (pictured) and her speed and quick striking attacks and Kellar with his scanning ability and spells. Magna will be particularly useful using his dark knight powers granted to him by the God of Shadow, Seocrux. He'll be particularly susceptible to light-based attacks, but high HP and attacking ability will make up for that if you use him correctly.
Anyway, hopefully this assures everybody that Chapter 2 won't be too far away and it's already had a lot of progress made even if the programming hasn't began yet. I have most of the quests and the full plot planned out, it's just a matter of writing the cut scenes and getting that implemented. Expect more updates over the next couple of months and if you have any questions feel free to PM me or comment down below!
