Smile Good work :D

Hi1
I really enjoy with this little demo.. good work!


Some random ideas:


- translations: open translations to community will really make your game more famous! (i'm from Italy, for example )

- combat animations: kivi only use his sword.. i think that more, more and more attack animations will be the difference!

- another bonus:

-- why not a small-teleporter bonus, in a random direction?
-- a fake kivi that can explore doungeon, like a shadow?


- using of 3d: graphics are good, but why you don't include in the game more 3-d elements? For example: a top-down trap that you can disarm (ehy! disarming trap is possible?) or if you fail, kivi fall in another sub-level?

- rotating walls: not only "illusion wall", but if kivi push on a wall, the wall rotate

- destructible enviroment: can kivi destroy walls? barrel is not enough for me! with a special bonuses, why not let kivi destroy walls, fireball-launch-trap or so on?

- combat movement: if kivi can push enemies, for example, into pit, or so on (mega-moster dragon-like that can with his wings push away kivi?)

- torch: is useful to turn on or off?

- when i see on the ground a bonus, i cannot see his descriptions.. can i drop bonuses?

- more secrets and SS ! :P

- more weapon.. and what about armor or something else equipment?

- a really evil trap: a trap that resurrect all enemies killed in a level, so kivi can look bak and kill again!

- point multiplier, for example: with a particular combo, i can have a x2, or x2.5 bonus multiplier

- i think that kivi's healt and mana will be stay on the bottom part of the game window, like in diablo, for example? (or maybe a ui customization )

- some npc that i cannot kill, but i can imprison ? using lever or so on?

- alternative path into maps!! not one only path. For example:

A -> B --> current level
A -> path choice -> C -> B
-> D -> B

I my choice was C path in one path, i cannot go back (a collapse in a cavern?). In another game i can choice for path D, and so on

- using secrets.. not only room, but secret path in a level!

- there is no award to find first time all secrets in a level?

- why not using internet to upload in a commond board my char, my awards and so on?




ok, stop

i like bestiary, but why not add a full "Codex", with:
- places
- bestiary
- history
- npc

and so on ?

i read here:

that you don't think that random map will be a good choice for Kivi.. i think that you can add a sort of "skirmish mode", where system create a random level, and player can explore it.. but in addition to normal levels, no ?

It will be. Depths of Peril has a Spanish and a German mod. We learned a lot from DoP and Kivi should be much easier to translate.

There are at least a couple of these in the game somewhere.

There are a few more destructible things in the game. They are more hidden than the barrels though. Actually my lead artist has added in another type of destructible object in the last few days.

In general, they are just ambient objects.

If you are talking about the powerups, no. You can switch them around though with the up/down arrow keys.

The UI is moddable.

We do both of these occasionally.

BTW, lists like this is why the mod stuff excites me a lot for this game. We might not have done a lot of this or might have only done some of these things occasionally, but most of them are easily done in the engine. There are going to be a bunch of really cool adventures, classes, and items created by all of you.
