Runemaster - Development Diary 10 - Skill Trees and Abilities
Tue, 22 Apr 2014 12:30:00 +0200
Hey everyone!

Another week, another Monday, and a new Developer Diary! Welcome to Dev Diary 10 for our upcoming RPG Runemaster. This week it is all about Skill Trees and Abilities for your hero.
When you begin your adventure, you start with basic abilities and each time you level up you will be able to add perks, increase your stats or improve on your existing abilities for your hero. What perks you choose depends on your hero’s level and the perks previously chosen. To shape your hero and make him/her sharper and stronger in the areas of how you play is of course vital to the gameplay.

So, let's take the basics first! When you begin your saga, every class have two skill trees, one for defense and
Hearts of Iron IV - Development Diary 4 - Land Doctrines
Mon, 21 Apr 2014 10:27:00 +0200
Hello! It's time for another Hearts of Iron 4 Developer Diary, and this one is about Land Doctrines. For HoI4, we are leaning more towards the Doctrine paths you may remember from HoI2 than the mix-and-match of HoI3. We have 4 main mutually exclusive Doctrine paths which nations can research. Each path also has one or more mutually exclusive choices to further differentiate the doctrines and sub-doctrines.
Because we are still pre-alpha, I can't really describe exactly what each tech in the tree does at the moment; this can and will change as we implement, test and iterate over them. I can describe the general idea behind each path and choice so hopefully you will understand what we are aiming for.

2014 Darkest Hour @ US Marine Corps War College WWII Exercise
Thu, 17 Apr 2014 22:19:00 +0200
Darkest Hour returned to the US Marine Corps War College to help facilitate a WWII strategy exercise. This time 3 developers were able to make it, along with 5 other volunteer gamers. The slides that follow show the chronology of how the war played out, touching on the major highlights of the strategies and gameplay. Following it will be a link to Lt. Col. Barrick's official AAR, which provides a technical overview of how the exercise was set up, and insights into how playing Darkest Hour was used as a tool to promote the teaching of strategic thought within a historical context. I recommend reading through the slides first, as Barrick's AAR contains spoilers. ;-)

First batch of slides...

War of the Vikings Released!
Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:28:00 +0200
Greetings community!

Something extraordinary happened this morning, an event comparable to Ragnarök itself - signaling both the end of times and a new beginning. Arriving at the office we had the pleasure of seeing War of the Vikings in a whole new way; radiating in a soothing aura of self confidence and greatness. As we basked in the nearly blinding light coming out of what seemed like nowhere we noticed what had changed, extruding from its chin was a lone, but proud, strand of hair.
“It is ready” said Executive Producer
