    Going to put quests on the back burner for now and focus on classes. Ideally you’ll start with 3 classes to choose from and be able to unlock up to 12 different classes (all classes from quest to the future, a few from quest to the core and a few new ones).

    Going to get these in and tested will have some gameplay screens and videos soon.

    Hey thanks for the support.

    Yea unfortunately I had to take about a year off to work on a pc project which I’m still kind of working on as well as taking up a part time job to get health insurance haha. My dev time is a little more limited than it used to be but glad to be back at it! Thanks again.

    I’ll have to take a look at services and what can be done but translations most likely won’t happen. I actually have to write all the text into the controls/objects so the game can be compatible for the visually impaired. So unfortunately it’s one or the other but I will take a look to see what can be done.

    Long time no update. Well life got busy so this project and app development in general was put on hold. The good news is over the last month or so I have made some good progress on the game and am shooting for a holiday release.


    Over the last month or so I have mostly reacquainted myself with my code and polished up some systems. I also added 2 new classes and am in the process of testing the new skills.

    I will post more as I have more and try to post daily on here not only as updates for anyone still interested in the game but also motivation for myself to get atleast something done everyday!

    Worked a bit more on the new class “Savage” tonight. Done with about 5/9 skills currently. Will post a bit more about them once they are complete. Here is a little preview of the character creator with that class and some of the other new classes.

    Did a full play through with Savage class and things are going well. Have some adjustments to make for balancing and tweaking animations but otherwise seems pretty set to go.

    working on spicing up npcs today as well. Just a reminder this is the “free” version of the previous title future fate however as you can see there are about 3-4 new classes and will be about 20% new monsters and items to spice things up for people who played future fate.

    Soon! And yes I will add you to the list.

    Hopefully I can have everything lined up for testing by early dec.

    I realized voiceover has completely changed how it works and for those not aware my previous games we voiceover compatible for the visually impaired. I plan on making sure this one is too so that might push the timeline back a bit.

    Did a bit more work on the reward system. You’ll get to choose from 5 different rewards every 10 battle levels. These rewards are mostly randomized each time so should make each play through even more unique.

    here is an example of one I just finished.

    885EFAC4-A741-4C44-A711-B8CF5B7B9ED9.png A bit more polishing up as well as squashing some leftover bugs. Testing 5th out of 10 areas a bit more. Added 6 monsters and about 10 item drops to spice things up.

    Hey just wanted to check in and update. Been a slow week working on testing the new zombie class. Not much to report on besides thinking out some skills and coding those skills. Zombies will mostly focus on high hp drain and mp train. They will be medium class and have some confusion powers.
    Will post a class preview here a little bit later maybe a small video.

    Working on the last class over the last few days. The alien class will mainly focus on spells and confusion. Will have some healing powers as well morphing abilities into different alien types.

    class name still work I. Progress may change to something more interesting than alien. Also working on the skills. Have about 6/8 skills again working on naming and effects for them.

    once I have things sorted will post some media for it.

    this will be the final class for launch.

    after this it’s down to polishing the levels a bit more and then I should be ready for an early TestFlight.

    after that I need to polish up for iPad as well as ensuring voiceover works correctly.


    The game may launch without voiceover initially it just kind of depends on what kind of rebuild I’m looking at I know apple changed a lot so if it’s something I can take care of in a week or I delay launch and add it. If it’s a bit process I’ll launch without it and work on it for the first update.

    Just a quick update here. Spent the last week or so playing through on the alien class. Went well. Found a bunch of minor bugs and tweaks each play through that I’m almost done fixing.

    Hoping to finish this class up fully over the weekend. Which will mean all the classes are done and finalized. As I created these classes if fixed minor bugs / changes as l build but put aside some of the more in-depth stuff which I’ll work on next week. Hoping to be to a point where I can put out a a TestFlight before Xmas. Should include all the classes and up to 6/10 arenas for people to test out and play.

    Not a ton to update here but just wanted to post things are still in motion. Just finishing up polish on arenas 7/10 and 8/10 so getting close. This involves testing for bugs as well as adding things like more monsters items and pets.

    again getting close looking to still have beta jan or feb.

    Made some overall changes to how stats work which caused me to have to adjust stats on monsters and compare classes etc. this is taking a while since I have to play through the whole game a few times.

    I have 1 big problem with how shops work which can likely be bypassed but it’s something I need to decide on before the game is released as well.

    the good news is after this play through I’m going to start polishing up for some beta testing. It’s been a while since I’ve done it and I’m sure it changed a lot (hopefully apple has made it easier).

    anyways for the test I’ll likely include 3-4 classes that really need testing and up to the 4th arena (which is about 80 of the 100) fights in the game.

    this includes:
    locking out all but 3-4 classes to be created.
    Locking arena after the 4th arena.
    Figuring out how I’m going to handle shops. (Likely will leave as is)
    Figuring out how I’m going to handle returning to previous arenas (likely will lock)
    Setting up some feedback forms.
    Playing through myself one more time from level 1-4
    fixing any minor bugs that pop up.
    Creating a set database to release TestFlight with (already created just need to finalize and set it to accept it). Usually quick but again been a while on Xcode.
    Submit to apple.

    so this is what I’m working with. Going to try my best to finish this up by next weekend. I’ll check off stuff as I get it done.

    Ok did 2 more play throughs over the week as well as fixing about 20 bugs/balance adjustments.

    Added a handful of new items pets images as well.

    working on about 4-5 fixes / adjustments. Then I can prep for TestFlight.

    if you are interested in testing post here or pm me. I’ll prob take as many as I can get so let me know.
