    Hey folks just checking in again

    I should have design completed and working for all iPhone sizes.

    Now I am working on iPad and about half way done. Once completed I’ll play through a few times to look for bugs and then release to testers likely this weekend with a close to final build (minus music).

    If you were unable to test because of your phone size or you were waiting for a tablet version let me know and I can send out a testing invite once the design is completed.

    Things are getting close!

    Beta Version 1.26 has been released!

    Test version 1.26 Update Notes

    Added Druid class (should be fun!)
    Updated interface for smaller and larger phones (should work with all phones iPhone 6 and higher).


    Updated interface for iPads (should work with all iPads)
    Includes final zone content and ability to complete the game (still working on balance aspects)


    Added final story and supporting story content (this is still a work in progress grammar wise).


    All npcs and rooms should have descriptions now (again still a work in progress but there shouldn’t be any blanks left)
    Still working on sound/music/writing
    Fixed various interface bugs with VoiceOver where parts of the interface would go “invisible until restarting”. There still may be some so please report. 


    Hundreds? of bug fixes and small changes/tweaks. 



    Special thanks to Celmak (Michael G.) for going above and beyond on testing the VoiceOver side of things. The game made substantial progress that without him would not have happened!




    Things are getting very close! Thanks as always for the support.

    For those who couldn’t test because they didn’t have the right device please let me know if you want to test this version. 



    For those who don’t want to test but are following the game I will share the Druid Class Preview soon.


    IF you are interested in helping test or just want a preview of the game please join the discord and let me know!

    Update number idk?

    Ok well we are about 6 months into what I assumed would be a 3-4 month process. Feature Creep for the loss!

    Anyways things are close and I am really just down to polishing now.

    I will be working down on a list til things are complete.


    Music (I have some left over tunes but would like to get some new stuff to match the game a bit more).
    SFX (same as music)
    Writing (most of the story is complete but I still need to grammer check and tie in some loose ends).

    Testing.

    So as you can tell things are getting close. If you folks have any questions or want a sneak peak feel free to join the discord!

    The updates are slowing down a bit as I polish up everything and get ready for release.

    I am hoping to have an early-release candidate for testing this weekend. I am looking at an early Feb release. Stay tuned for the preorder page and final release date.

    Everything is pretty much done besides a few songs I need to fit/adjust and some leaderboard/achievement features.

    Here is a short video preview of the first 3-4 minutes of gameplay to give you an idea of how everything is looking.



    If you are still looking to test or just want a free early copy of the game no strings attached hop over to the discord and I will get you set up.

    Thanks for the support as always!

    Hey folks, just a quick heads up. I am just polishing up the final achievements and testing until I can't test anymore. Looking to submit the release build to Apple next week.

    Between now and release time I will be posting some previews as I make them. Thanks.

    For those of you who have played the previous games and want to know what's new and what makes this one unique, I compiled a quick list of the game differences.


    For those that have played the previous games here are a few of the additions/improvements from the previous ones.

    Character Creation
    !! New classes with skill tree (Elementalist, Warrior, Rogue, Hunter, Priestess, Druid)
    !! Old classes without skill tree (Savage, Illusionist, Guardian)

    Note: So you can play characters with a skill tree or straightforward of gaining spells. I did this for the people who prefer the ease of just having skills assigned like how the old games work.
    Hidden Classes
    Races added back (8 new and old races)


    Gameplay / Overworld
    !! Streamlined Create Your Own Item (you can make an item with your own name, stats, picture. After making the item it’s a part of the game and you can even find them when you play on other characters).
    !! Skill trees (Choose your skills and build your character as you progress)

    Extra inventory slots. (Added 6 slots on main inventory and 5 in account vault)
    Containers - items that can hold other items. For example, a bandit may drop a bandits pack that holds a healing potion and dagger).
    Runes - These are one-use permeant stat enhancers.
    !! Achievements- About 40 achievements
    More in-depth story - more attention to the story compared to past games and much more npc dialog as the supplemental story
    More in-depth over-world - more interactable options
    World items now can change when searched. Rather than just disappearing after searching a barrel it might instead now just have a picture with the top off.
    More npc dialog. NPCs can give items.
    Ability to have up to 4 moving npcs on floor (up from 2)
    Npcs can move and leave the floor now



    Music
    New music and SFX
    Creation by indie artists in the community. (shout out to Aaron Cloutier)
    Adjusted music and the ability for the game to save previous music settings between sessions. Requested by VoiceOver users.


    Interface
    !! New interface - more island / fantasy-themed interface.
    Improved action log
    Improved directional pad with indicators for points of interest and searching. Navigation Indicator icon for easier navigation.
    Improved and organized character stat page.


    Battle System
    !! Addition of elemental damage and resistance system. (built into most formulas, items, skills and NPCs)
    Added in elemental damage to all formulas. (Earth water fire shadow resist and power)
    Lots of new skills based on the elemental system
    Action and lookover system - the ability to look over everything while battling.
    Look over Your location and its description
    Look over Npcs pets skills player
    Npcs lookovers run on a system where the more you kill (account-wide) the more info you gain on them.
    Level 1 (0 kills)- look over just npc name and max hp.
    Level 2 (1 - 9 kills or playing as a druid) - look over the main stats and some details.
    Level 3 (10+ kills or playing as a hunter) - look over All stats and sub-stats. Current hp/sp etc. (gives you a big tactical advantage)
    Stat potions no longer cost SP to use (encouraging people to use them more)
    Improved combat log. (Resets after each round easier to track and less buggy)


    Accessibility improvements.
    !! The navigation pad now speaks hints to surrounding rooms
    !! Rooms/squares with npcs or interactable items now give that hint when touching room.
    Lots and lots of fixes hiding no-label buttons/confusing labels.
    Streamlined interface to only give info you need.
    Adjusted music and the ability for the game to save previous music settings between sessions. Requested by VoiceOver users.

    About 7 days until Launch so I will start doing some class previews!

    Warriors



    Warriors are your standard melee class with a slight twist. Their key ability is a passive ability that causes your 3rd consecutive attack to hit for 1.5x damage. Any miss, using a buffing/debuffing skill, or using a potion interrupts this bonus so choose your actions wisely. You can strategically use this in many ways. The first is by hitting a low agi enemy for the first 2 attacks then using your bonus damage attack on a harder enemy. You can also choose to use 1 stam attacks to gain the bonus and then with your 3rd attack use a 2 or 3 stam attack to get more out of your bonus damage. 

Warriors wield heavy weapons and wear heavy armor in battle.



    Starting Skills:

    
Fury Smash (Passive) - A passive skill that causes your third consecutive attack in a row to hit for 1.5x damage.

    Hey Folks, I wanted to give an inside look at some of the music that will be in the upcoming game.

    A few have asked here and some other sites about improving the music for this upcoming game so I made a point to do so.

    I worked with another indie artist Aaron Cloutier to create some more interesting music. It still has a little bit of the 8-bit feel but is now much more immersive. For those interested here is a video about the process of creating battle music in the volcano zone.

    Aaron created the battle music for the Jungle, Volcano, and Crypt.

    For those interested in understanding how the game is accessible to the blind/visually here is a video made by @IllegallySighted. This is a great tutorial video about how this game translates to VoiceOver and how the game is made accessible to play.

    Well, it's been about 270 days since I was laid off, and decided to take another stab at game development. It was a much longer and more difficult process than I expected but it was a really fun and rewarding journey! The new Adventure To Fate Lost Island game is out TODAY.

    Thanks so much to those who followed the dev blog and supported me along the way. A huge shoutout to TouchArcade for giving me a platform to share this game and for giving gamers a great place to find new and interesting games.

    Without TouchArcade there would be no Adventure to Fate. As you can see I have been a member since 2011. I came to this forum/site and found games I loved to play. They inspired me. I was able to follow game creation (just like this blog) and at a certain point I decided maybe I can make a game. Maybe I can do it too so I did. So thanks again!

    Here is the official download link:
    https://apps.apple.com/us/app/adventure-to-fate-lost-island/id6450016324

    Thanks again to everyone involved!
