Hey all! Today’s Saturday update includes an article on Dead Man’s Trail’s level design, which was featured on game industry website Gamasutra last week.
The level design article outlines things like the team’s design goals for the game’s zombies, how levels were designed to best utilize them, and how we used playtesting to get our difficulty “just right.” It can be found here.
Likewise, we’re hard at work improving some front-end elements and creating our fort interface.
Forts are the last thing for us to add before we are feature complete. We can then head towards polishing the game and pushing towards content-complete.
Look for early access to begin in mid-June! We’ll also be sending the game out to streamers soon!
