    Hey everyone! I am a member of The Gentlebros, and we're back for the sequel to Cat Quest!
    The first game was such a resounding success, and it really gave us the chance to continue the story that was started in the first game! We also benefited a lot from getting fan feedback(especially this forum), and decided to keep up that tradition for the sequel! Looking forward to interacting with everyone again!

    Cat Quest II is an open world adventure game for mobile devices, PC and consoles!
    We're still early in development but we do have a teaser trailer to show! ;D



    Gameplay
    We're keeping a lot of what made the first game great, but adding a ton more based on the feedback we got! Yes, so this means more weapon types(long ranged weapons finally!), greater variety in dungeons, MFI controller support and a whole host of other improvements!
    For the first time, the game will also support local co-op and have a much longer story! And yes, your eyes do not deceive you, you can also play as a dog this time! Things are gonna get ruff!

    Combat
    Everything changes now that you have a partner! If you're not playing with a real person, your partner will be AI controlled(so no worries there!). Look forward to doing combos and casting spells together! Coupled with the new weapon and enemy types, expect a much larger variety to the combat!

    [​IMG]

    Right now, we're just going to keep posting updates as we have them, but we hope we can get feedback from everyone here as we do! Feel free to post anything you'd like improved from the first game too!
    We hope everyone is excited for the sequel!

    Gentle fist bump!​

    Glad that you are keeping mobile in the mix. The first game was a delight, and the additions you are describing seem like welcome improvements. Looking forward to seeing more in the coming months!

    It would be great to have a map that details if we collected all the coins, extras, defeated all the baddies, etc. This would save a lot of traveling back and forth only to later realize that we've completed this level before.

    put some boss that are really really really hard to defeat so you need to get the best gear to defeat it, because since in the first one i feel it was too easy

    I still want the option to rotate controlled character so I can play as the dog without having to find someone to play with. That’s the only thing I’d like put in.

    Yay, thanks you all! :3

    A much better map is in the works! It will be scrollable this time too! :)

    Noted, thank you!

    Yes! That is actually a mechanic already in! Swapping character will play into combat and other mechanics too! :)

    Thanks for the positive response everyone! :)

    Just wondering but for those who have played the first game, what are some of the things you guys would like to see improved and retained?

    And for those who haven't, what are some of the things you'd like to see in this game? :)

    Having played through a significant amount of the first game, I have some thoughts.

    - The overworld is great and I enjoy the zoom out feature. However, the overworld is severely lacking diversity in the biomes/regions. I enjoyed the inclusion of the few different biomes (i.e. snow and graveyard) that were included, but I definitely wanted more.

    - The touch controls are good, for the most part (at least with the Apple Pencil), but the game deserves MFI support from day 1. Would be nice to see this finally added to the first game, too. There are a few issue places, such as the "New Game" and "Continue" buttons on the main menu; they are fairly difficult to select with the Apple Pencil (I think it is a sensitivity issue).

    - This is a bug, or likely unintended design, but I hope you do not get placed behind billboards after using them (which happens, quite often).

    - For cat designs, it would be nice to see more variety. I may stand alone, here, but I feel there are too many Bieber-haired cats.

    - Improve or diversify (change up) the layouts of the dungeons. There was one dungeon that was a spiral layout and it was a refreshing change to the typical maze layout. It would be nice to see some designs that put players in a challenging situation and requires some thought when battling the enemies.

    - Reduce the backtracking. Add portals to the map (Diablo-style) so that you are not going back and forth continuously. While the overworld is nice, some parts can get a little repetitive after a while.

    - More explanation of things that are not mentioned. For example, I have not figured out what the gold chest means above a dungeon (cleared? gold chest opened?).

    - Include a dialog history, in the menu, that can be reviewed. When using the Apple Pencil during combat or movement, there were often times where the text dialog would open and it would accidentally be skipped. There were also other times where I went to go to the next message and accidentally skipped some of the dialog. While I am not always big on stories, it would be nice to know what I had missed without having to play again and reading through all of the text because I have no idea which text boxes were skipped.

    - While I am not yet past the point-of-no-return, I have found that a lot of the gold chest items are far out-scaled by already-owned items, making them effectively meaningless. I hope that there will be a way to add meaning to them (perhaps the $5000 coin chest.s..?).

    That's about all, for now.

    Still have the first one on my iPhone! Looking forward to beating this one as well Gentlebros! If you need any help let me know. If I remember correctly (I’m getting old now) I helped beta test the first one. If not then I was a day one contributor on here. Can’t wait!

    I agree with most of what's been suggested.

    Cat Quest 1 was great but more options, more details, more depth is welcome.

    Can't wait for part 2!
     
  19. Want more secrets. As much secret, unique items, secret quests with special rewards and bosses, as possible. Miss those FF times on PlayStation when, after finally completing a game I always discovered something new, while browsing on game forums. Half of it's content wasnt available at first play not because of some kind of content barrier that developers put in (like new game+) or something but because players coudn't grasp at first what those games really had them to offer.

    Suggestions and Ideas
    Hidden achievements
    Hidden weapons and stat boosts to unlock by doing tasks like kill (x) amount of (x) enemies and receive (x) weapon or permanent stat boost

    After beating the game you can unlock endless mode where you continue defeating enemies whose level of difficulty still rise to allow more leveling.

    Receiving quests from the signs was a great idea I would like to see stay.

    Wierd Ideas
    Make wanted posters of npcs or whoever . Explain crimes committed on the sign. after you beat them in a fight , either capture them and return for reward or choose a bribe from them and receive half off of goods or whatnot.

    Make a purchasable house for yourself and collect and buy furnitures from quests and npcs.

    Training Facility like a Scratching Post to build up strength, agility, speed, ect

    Create a “Petting” icon which has a cool down to replenish health , stamina, or mana

    Funny weapons
    Laser pointer , to make enemies attack other enemies by guiding them towards the other and attack there face

    Cat nip, to give you speed boost
