With more and more players getting their hands on Dungeon Defenders II, we’d like to start a new weekly series where we share what we’re working on each week!

Working on some heavy redesigns for two major systems: Loot (relics, armor, weapons) and Special Stats.
Danny Araya, Creative Director (@DannyAraya)
I’m working with our writer on super secret lore things!
Javier Barreto, Lead Software Programmer (@javo)
I'm solely working on end-of-match awards, making sure it matches what the designers want. Other than that, I'm helping programmers on systems designs and consultations.
Eduardo Lev, Engine Programmer ([[57155,users]])
Smoothing out the matchmaking flow and adding messaging to make the progression between level ranges clearer. Improving our metrics functionality so we can get better statistics about what players are doing in the game. Adding cool new functionality for our artists and designers. SMASHING PUNY BUGS.
Chris James, Lead Level Designer ([[63955,users]])
We are creating new maps! There are some really fun experiences coming down the pipeline, and we cannot wait to share them with the community. Stay tuned fellow Etherians.
Abraham Abdala, Lead Technical Animator ([[59787,users]])
Costume embellishments test. Trying to setup and implement embellishments with independent animation sets. Fixing a bunch of animation related tasks. All our flying enemies were calling the wrong death animation. And organizing our Content Repository Concept Art folders.
Joshua Javaheri, Lead Technical Artist ([[23,users]])
Finalizing a first pass of our new end-of-match reward loop. Being sick, too.
Chris Flores, QA Lead ([[59727,users]])
QA has been spending time reviewing the bugs the Defense Council has been reporting. Trying to repro them and then input them into Jira if needed. We’ve also been doing some Tech Support for some users and trying figure out why the game won’t work for them. Finally, we’ve been keeping up with the new content/features that have been/will be coming in and getting those verified.

We’re hard at work on writing the Steam description for Dungeon Defenders II Early Access and sorting through all your feedback on our last blog to determine the awards and pricing for Steam Early Access. Special shoutout to [[59367,users]] for helping aggregate the information!
We’re also hard at work creating scripts for a few new Dungeon Defenders II Developer Diaries and getting together all the media for our special reveal at The Game Awards on December 5th!

I’m working with our two wonderful wiki admins, [[63276,users]] and @eonswrath, on getting the DD2 wiki setup! They’ve been doing a wonderful job so far. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the wiki so far. If you’d like to help out with editing or creating content for the wiki, head over to the wiki and edit away!
