Sign in to follow this  


Daniel Haddad, Creative Director (Blacksmith)

Working on the Defense changes, Stat Allocation System, and planning a cool upcoming event with the team.

Also here is a riddle:

I bask in the twilight

I strike from the shadows

The shadows writhe around me

I am the darkness

The darkness writhes

Twilight falls upon us all

What am I?”

Guess correctly and win a “correct!” reply that I will post! First to guess correctly gets an imaginary cyber cookie!

Danny Araya, Creative Director (DannyAraya)

Working on story outlining, Carl scripts and Carl storyboards!

James Reid, Software Programmer (Driscan)

Working on the SAS system as well as squashing some bugs.


Jeffrey Bickel, Technical Level Designer (TE_Jeff)

Continuing the prototyping work from last few weeks. Looking good so far, can’t wait to share more with you guys!

Steven Collins, Level Designer (Esorath)

Working with the world builders to make sure the updates to Little-Horn Valley are smooth.

Chris Flores, QA Lead (likethatwhenigothere)

Testing on the next milestone is in full swing. Scoping out some new costumes, some new attack animations and projectile types, and the new stat allocation system. Fun times.

Abraham Abdala, Lead Tech Animator (Broham)

All about the Weapon Variety System. And new skins! Lots of testing and iteration to this new system that hopefully will be a big hit!

Joshua Javaheri, Lead Technical Artist (javahawk)

Spending some time this week on polishing our latest patch content and determining priorities for the next milestone!

Adam Stow, Associate Producer (TE_Stow)

Signing off on adjustments to Little Horn Valley.  Let us know if they work for you when this goes live soon.

Jason Yu, Associate Producer (urfyness)

We’ve started Stabilization Week which is where we take a look at all the work we’ve done for the Milestone, figure out what makes it in and doesn’t, and fix as many bugs as we can in a week. We may have found the bug that was causing our social taverns to poop itself (Bad social tavern! Bad!)  which in turn, is causing a lot of issues that are affecting all of our wonderful fans. Some possible bugs this may fix are the Daily/Monthly Missions improperly resetting, some instances of the game failing to save, and infinite black loading screen.

Javier Barreto, Lead Software Programmer (javo)

Stabilizing a.k.a. bugfixing/polishing.

We have found and solved some nasty issues with our servers. I can’t really say everything is fixed, but we are looking good. Having said that … part of my job is preparing the team for what is to come:  NEW COOL STUFF!!! a.k.a. new features. Thus I’m working my head around what we need and how can we do it....… Yes; sometimes I feel I know what the designers will require next. Sometimes I’m totally lost. =P

Last but not the least:  We are out on PS4!!! Check that out! I can’t find enough words of gratitude for the team responsible for that -- the Human Head Studios guys. Those guys are busting their a… ehhh … killing it! Thanks!

Ok … enough said. Thanks for your support (and reading this).Keep your eyes/ears open for incoming announcements… And enjoy the game!

PS: Don’t forget to check out the PS4 version!

Jesus Diaz, World Builder (N3oDoc)

Still doing some visual changes to the Little-Horn Valley level, adding some more details to the social hub level and checking out a new "whitebox” level, which is the next level we're going to be working on!

Daniel Diaz, World Builder (DanielKaMi)

Same as Jesus, we are really excited about the new level, can't wait to start working on it!

Dani Moore, Remote QA Manager (Dani)

Just like Chris: Scoping out some new costumes, some new attack animations and projectile types, and the new stat allocation system.

Also organising and running our first playtest group, getting feedback on our next major release. Head to the forums and find the thread if you’re interested!

Philip Asher, Marketing Director (pmasher)

PS4 release. And… back to work!

Josh Isom, Community Manager (iamisom)

Helping Dani organize and setup the Remote Playtesting Group! This is a group of volunteer community members who will help us playtest new changes and provide feedback for the team. If you’re interested, email dani.moore[at]trendyent[dot]com.

And the PS4 pre-alpha is available for North American players! We’re working with Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) to get the game to European players as we speak. As soon as we have a release date, we’ll share it with you.

If you find any issues with the PS4 version, or if you want to share feedback on the PS4 features, head to the PS4 Feedback forum!

For my riddle: Who has two thumbs and hates riddles?!

I was about to respond with Dark Templar but you beat me to it! D:

Also, I emailed Dani regarding the remote feedback group. I hope to hear back soon! Excited to help make one of my favorite game franchise even better. 

One more also: The answer to iamisom's riddle of "Who has two thumbs and hates riddles?!" is Batman, obviously.

Correct answer to the riddle: Vague.

I'm interested in becoming part of that play testing group. I seem to have a knack for discovering odd bugs, graphical errors, holes in the world, areas that aren't supposed to be accessible, and that sort of thing. Emoji_Witherbeast.png

Indeed the answer is a Dark Templar! Those guys tickle the little emo inside us all! Good job to everyone who guessed correctly but an especially good job to @TimedNova.

Behold @TimedNova as you bask in the glory of the giant imaginary cyber cookie that now appears before you. Note that it is topped with the finest toppings magnificently assembled for your tastes and your tastes alone. As you stare upon it you feel a sense of great joy and fear... fear for you know as you devour said cyber cookie it may kill you but damn it for TimedNovas there is no greater death than the death by devouring giant imaginary cyber cookies!

LotV Hype!
