Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: June 22
16 days ago – Sat, Jun 11, 2022 at 11:38:40 PM

Hello Backers,


We hope everyone is ready for a summer of updates! This update will be lighter than most because we have several events and other updates coming out to share with everyone. See our progress below.

Update Summary

- Physical Figures Update
- Game Development Update
- Game Armor and Weapons


Physical Figure Update

Well, we wish we had more news on this one, but our manufacturing partners are still delayed due to the current COVID issues over there and supply chain issues. We have been given some tentative dates from them, but until we can lock down exact ones, we don’t want to share something that might not happen. While we don’t have a final date yet on the action figures (which we know is one of the main items everyone wants!), we do have the printing of everything else (coins, t-shirts, and map) happening now in coordination with our distribution partners. Again, we are very sorry for this delay, but here is a teaser from the game to help for now!

Game Development Update

Customizer
As we mentioned in May, the working version of the customizer is being polished. We were able to add a lot of additional materials to it and are looking forward to sharing this with everyone as soon as possible. See the screens below.

Game Engine and System
We have finished the in-game UI as well as added most of the special attacks and skills to the game engine! See some of the screens below!

Locations
As we have been focusing on building out the world, we will start showing more and more locations from Mythoss.

Game Armor and Weapons

We have completed the armors needed for the name! We are now focused on rigging all characters with them and animations for everything including weapons. See below.

Thank you all for your continued support, and check out our socials and discord for some up coming events!


Best,

Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: May 22
about 2 months ago – Wed, May 04, 2022 at 05:49:02 AM

Hello Backers,

Hope everyone had a great April! We have a lot of updates for everyone, but also wanted to apologize for missing the last monthly update.  The good news is that we are getting much closer to having the game ready for builds and the action figures sent out! See our progress below.

Update Summary

  • Physical Figures Update 
  • Game Development Update
  • Game Armor

Physical Figure Update

As everyone is aware these days, supply chain delays have affected everything. We have been in constant communication with our manufacturing partners, and we are working to have all action figures shipped out to everyone as soon as we can, but we still don’t have a solid date just yet. As soon as we are more confident on the dates, we will let everyone know and start planning out the shipping schedule. We are very sorry for this delay, but the world has turned into a crazy place these days! We do want to assure everyone that their orders are still coming, and we are working as fast as we can to get everything completed.


Game Development Update

Customizer
The first big game update is that we have a working version of the customizer! We are just adding more features, more weapons, more armors, more races, more animations, and more polish. See the screens below.

Engine
The second update is that we have finished most of the Tactics and Battle engine and are just adding the final UI elements and then merging all levels into it now. This is one of the main pieces that we had to finish and are now testing the battles for balance of play.

Locations
We have been also working on filling out all of the world locations for both battles and story. There are some really good story scenes that you all will have to just wait and see from the game!

Game Weapons, Armor, and Characters

We are nearly done with all the base and additional armor sets! We are working to finish out the Skeleton, Vampire, and Female Dwarf armor sets and then we will be done. Check out some of the references.

As always stay safe, and thank you all for your continued support!

Best,

Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: Mar 22
4 months ago – Wed, Mar 09, 2022 at 04:23:26 PM

Hello Backers,

Hope everyone is ready for some great updates! As we indicated from last week, we are updating a progress bar on the game’s development. We are officially more than halfway done!

Update Summary

  • Intern For A Day
  • Physical Figures Update 
  • Game Development Update
  • Game Characters and Armor

Physical Figure Update

Manufacturing is going well, and we have started to get more of an idea on dates now. We are now starting to plan out the schedule for the shipping and shipping fees for everyone. Stay tuned for more information, and we will be reaching out to everyone individually with more info around this over the next few months to make sure everyone gets their full order!


Intern For A Day

For those of you who are joining us at 4H Studios on April 2nd, we can’t wait to see you! If anyone has any questions about the time, date, or location for the Intern For A Day reward from the campaign please contact us at mythiclegionstactics@gmail.com  See you soon!


Game Development Update

Now that we are over halfway done, we are going to start sharing a little more detail. First, we have spent a considerable amount of time on the tactics engine, the on server AI, and the story scenes.

For the tactics engine, we have been adding in features to make sure that players can go to multiple levels, use action points to jump over certain obstacles, and checkout larger areas of the levels.

For the server AI, we have been focusing on making sure that our behavior trees have the options for each class’s skills. Making a good AI is a key component of making a tactics game great to play!

The story scenes are coming along nicely! We don’t want to show too much of them so that you can enjoy them more when you see them in game, but here are a few peeks 😊

Game Characters and Armor

As always here are some cool characters and armor!

Oh, and if you are reading this far then just letting you know that we have an exciting announcement next month... Sorry to leave the cryptic statement, but you will see why next month! As always stay safe in these difficult times, and thank you all for your continued support!

Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: Feb 22
5 months ago – Mon, Feb 07, 2022 at 01:45:53 AM

Hello Backers,

Hope everyone is surviving the crazy weather! To help everyone start seeing where we are progress wise, we will be including a progress bar per update. See below!


Game Dev Progress Bar

Update Summary

  • Kickstarter vs Backerkit Payment Info
  • Physical Figures Update 
  • Game Development Update
  • Game Armor

Kickstarter vs Backerkit Payment Info

We would like to start off this update by trying to clear up some confusion between Kickstarter and Backerkit. While Kickstarter is the platform we used to fund the public crowdfunding project, Backerkit is where we are managing the backers, shipping, and delivery of everything within the project. They are sometimes thought of as the same service, but they are in fact two separate services. Since we are using Backerkit to manage everyone’s orders, we are also using it to manage all shipping which is why Backerkit may be asking some of you to enter your payment information there even if you have entered it into Kickstarter. We are sorry for this confusion and not explaining this better to everyone, and we hope this explanation makes more sense. If not please reach out to directly at mythiclegionstactics@gmail.com.


Physical Figure Update

Wish we had more information on this, but the figures are still in the manufacturing process. We hope to have a lot of additional information on this for everyone in next month’s update!


Game Development Update

We are about 46% complete with the game based on our overall tasks to complete. We have made significant progress on every aspect of the game and look forward to start showing you more and more over the next couple of months. As we stated on the last update, we are still in the main core programming for the engine, backend servers, and multiplayer.  See some of the images below for progress on levels, story scenes, and characters!

Game Armor

As always here are some cool weapons and armor!

We look forward to showing everyone significantly more over the next few months. Again, stay safe in these difficult times, and thank you all for your continued support!

Mythic Legions Tactics - Monthly Update: Jan 22
6 months ago – Thu, Jan 06, 2022 at 11:14:38 AM

Hello Backers,

Happy New Years! We hope everyone had a great December Holidays and New Year! Due to break, our updates are more informative than anything, but we are excited about the games overall progress. See below!

Update Summary

  • Backerkit Shipping
  • Physical Figures Update
  • Game Development Update
  • Game Armor

Backerkit Shipping

First let us apologize to everyone who got an email from Backerkit about needing to put payment information into Backerkit for the shipping cost in the future. Apparently, the feature we are using for charging shipping later is relatively new, and they accidently sent an email out to everyone before we are even close to shipping and to people who have their payment information already in the system. While it is important for everyone to put in their payment information for shipping, it is not necessary until we are within 30 days of shipping out the figures. See the update below for more details!


Physical Figure Update

Some good news here, the figures have been submitted to the manufacturer to start! They are still in the early processing phases at the moment, so we don’t have the final schedule yet. Once we do, we will provide everyone with estimated times for shipping and delivery!


Game Development Update - 38% Completed!

Over the past few months, we have been focused on all of the hardcore engine programming. This includes the tactics engine, AI, attacks, special attacks, animations, classes, etc… We are nearing the completion of most of this programming now and are now working on integrating all of these with the online servers for progress saving, character customization, and multiplayer. While this is more backend work, we anticipate this taking another few months before all the main core programming is completed. This will allow us to start doing builds and showing more in-game footage. I know everyone wants to see more of this, as do we, but now that we are nearing the end of the main programming, we are close to that stage. We look forward to showing you more complete game footage soon!

Game Armor

As always here are some cool armors!

Well, that’s it for this update. However, we would also like to let everyone know that we hope that you all stay safe in these difficult times. Have a happy and safe Jan 2022 and thank you all for your continued support!

Best,

Great Hall Game Studios
