Terrordrome: Reign of the Legends Development Update, October 2022

Development Continues!

 

With Dracula now released, our focus has shifted to hot fixes, bug fixes, and balancing. But there is plenty more going on in the background. Let’s take a look!

 

Coding

 

User Interface changes

Our coders, Brad and Matt, have been working towards updating the menu user interface for the game. We plan to provide a more sleek design and an improved visual presentation within the menus.

Epic Online Services

A lot of work has gone into the inclusion of Crossplay capabilities with Epic Online Services as we plan to put Terrordrome on the Epic Store. We still have plenty of details to work out on this end, so stay tuned.

GGPO Rollback Netcode

As always, the team is progressing with integration of Rollback Netcode. This is an important part of development to improve the current net play and provide a seamless online experience for multiplayer. Some advancements have been made, but it is a task still in development, so keep an eye out for more news in the future.

Animations
Wendigo

Since Dracula’s release, we have been gearing up to release the Wendigo hopefully by the coming Winter season. Preferably before the end of 2022. For the time being, the Wendigo is still within the animation phase. However, his animations are coming along well and production of the animations have boosted.

Our lead animator, Marc, has completed many of the Wendigo’s attack animations, including normal attacks and specials. Our junior animator, SkullRabbit, has completed basic reactions for Wendigo, including being hit, blocking, and knockdowns.

We do plan to begin the process of integrating the Wendigo to the game this month, expect to hear more next month

Other Animations

The TerrorTeam has considered the possibility of additional character animations, such as taunts and other miscellaneous features. These have only entered a brainstorming stage and are not in full development. This is primarily due to the other more taxing and important animations to complete first.

Other News
Stages

Development on new stages has begun with the primary focus being on the Wendigo’s stage first before focusing on existing character stages. We feel it is important for a character’s identity to have their own stage, so it is important for Wendigo to launch with his stage ready. The Wendigo’s home is planned to be a winter themed forest, ruined and wretched. Something to fit in with the evil coldness this creature is known for. Work on this stage has begun.

Frankenstein and the White Lady’s stages will also be developed after Wendigo’s stage is ready, however we do not have an estimated time for when these can be complete. They are still early in conceptualizing.

Spring Heeled Jack

Spring Heeled Jack’s model has been completed and is ready for rigging. The Invisible Man’s model is still in development so we have made the decision to begin work on Spring Heeled Jack after the Wendigo’s completion.

Here is an updated preview of this jumping maniac!

Thanks again for continuing to follow us and support our game.

Terrordrome: Reign of the Legends Development Update, September 2022

Where are we now?

So first things first, where’s the next update?
Unfortunately, it has taken the team more time than expected to finish up the latest update. Dracula is ready, along with the 2 new stages, music tracks, and gameplay mechanics.

We have had some setbacks in regards to implementing these features into the latest build, primarily due to waiting for commissioned music for the stages and finalizing sounds and bug fixes for Dracula.

So to put it simply, the next update is right around the corner and we are excited to have it ready for you very soon.

WHAT’S NEW?

While we finish integrating the new features into our next build, what has been happening in the background? Here’s a quick rundown:

CODING

New menu designs are in development and will be integrated in later updates. These have only just begun.

Our coders Brad and Matt have also been working towards integrating GGPO Rollback net code. There is not a lot to share in regards to this at the moment. Stay tuned.

NEW STAGES

The Hidden Forest and Abandoned Park stages are finalized and ready. The stages will be a part of the next update and are home to Sasquatch and T.H.I.S The Clown. The music for both of these stages have been added to these stages as well.

ANIMATION

With Dracula’s animations complete, it is time to begin work on our next character, the Wendigo. Our lead animator, Marc, will begin working on the Wendigo’s animations this month.
In addition, our team member SkullRabbit will also assist in the animation process to speed up the development of this character. This gives Marc more time to focus on other aspects of animation, design future assets such as stages, and writing.

With that, here is a preview of the Wendigo’s idle stance animation!

 

SPRING HEELED JACK MODEL

Behold! Spring Heeled Jack’s model has been created and is ready for rigging. Here is a preview of what is to come!

OTHER NEWS

Dracula’s trailer has been completed and will be ready to launch upon release of the next update. We greatly appreciate your support and hope you can forgive us for the delays. We truly think it will be worth the wait.

Terrordrome Reign of the Legends Development Update, June 2022

Dracula is coming along well, latest progress is that his animation phase has almost finished and large portions of his moveset has been added in engine so far but not his helper move yet, Introducing Sybil and Isadora, Dracula’s brides who will join as his helper move.
these two are still in development and will look a lot more unique and stylish once finished.

Our coder Brad will also be adding a combo breaker mechanic in replacement of armoured fall and stand, this should bring more visual flair to the game and provide more fun competitive moments.

Terrordrome Reign of the Legends Development Update, May 1st

Terrordrome Reign of the Legends Development Update, April 2022:
