That’s right, it’s time for a Christmas battle to keep everyone on their toes!
Chaoswizard98 has this to share:
Merry Christmas everyone
I added a nightmare challenge battle to the game which puts you up against all 66 enemies from chapter 1 all in a single battle royale. You can play this battle by setting ‘Challenge Mode’ to true in the options menu before starting a new game.
It’s always exciting to see new Shining-style projects appear! DrEthan recently contacted me to let me know about his project, Kings of Ember. It’s been under development for around a year now, and there are playable demos available for Windows, Mac and Linux.
As you can see from the above screenshot, the game already features a working Shining-style battle system. The demo also contains a little town area to explore and some NPC’s to chat with.
Word of advice: the demo gives you some different weapons in your inventory, so be sure to equip them to help with defeating the brick golem.
Chapter 1 of The Legend of Syro is now available for download, and it’s been well worth the wait!
A quick list of changes in the complete story:
4 New battles
Lots of new cutscenes
See the complete changelog for all changes in this version (and all previous ones).
There are also factions to join, secrets to find and a full story to play through. The battle engine is extremely polished, items and magic all work nicely. Enemies also have pretty good AI and won’t hesitate to attack your healer at the worst possible time.
