Do you have some awesome combat moves ideas for the characters in Project Lodus? We’d love to hear about them! As we continue to craft our combat system, we want our community to be integrally involved in that process. We will be active on the forums taking suggestions and discussing possibilities and after we’ve got a pool of good moves, Hans will be trying them out on camera for you to see. From there, we will continue to evolve the moves until finally we have a set of them to create in-game!
Learn more of the details and join in on the open discussion in this thread on our Leviathan forums. See you there!
We’re proud to reveal our revamped Project Lodus playable characters! These represent our current stylistic direction much better and this time have an early pass at gear styles too. Lloyd Hoshide did an amazing job on the art. A little more info and a 1080p version here.
Last night was a momentous occasion for our art director Garrett, who’s inspiration blog was tweeted by the legendary William Gibson. You may know him as the author of Neuromancer and many others, the coiner of the term “cyberspace,” and for being credited as the father of cyberpunk. Needless to say, Garrett flipped out about this as his blog exploded with new cyberpunk fans’ attention. Just thought you’d want to know William Gibson is watching!
You can see the glowing review that Gibson retweeted here.
Art Director Garrett here. In celebration of my birthday today, I give you (far ahead of our internal schedule) Project Lodus WIP mockups! Top is the standard intended in-game view, bottom is with momentum mode engaged. Read more about it and see 1080p versions here!
Our Design Director Hans in action today while we were working out more choreography for our main characters. Here he’s pulling off a butterfly spin planned for Project Lodus character Vulcan. Badass, no?
We just got word that Australia has been hit with Leviathan shirts, and with that we assume everyone should have theirs (unless customs has been mean to you). All the Leviathan shirt backers got the above graphic on a card with their package, but we also wanted to share this with all fans. Thanks again for supporting us both financially and emotionally! We value all of you so much.
We also know it’s been fairly quiet around here. Rest assured that doesn’t mean nothing is happening. There are many things in the works and we can’t wait to talk about them if and when they come to fruition. Until then, remember you can still follow our periodic updates here, on our forums, Twitter, and Facebook. (hint: we like Twitter the best.)
The life of an indie dev isn’t easy - especially early on when you’re still trying to prove a concept. Thanks again for hanging with us on this awesome journey!
