Finally, after some hours of work, we decided to release our custom map.
Named Requiem of Hammerwatch (can be change in the future), you'll play as a hero, or a group of heroes who want to collect 3 orbs. Those orbs are essences of human qualities, but are lost since thousands years... Wars, murders, felony, humans are really corrupted, and you have to solve this, bring the peace on the world.

the maps quite good, im hoping alot of that stuff is place-holder images for custom art.

few issues we encountered, multi-player language select buttons didn't work.
your doors areas are too small
check all your levels are inside the same act, otherwise keys will dissapear when you leave a dungeon.
shops are all surrounded by doors?

think your dungeons layout and puzzles need a bit more thought but the lightings where good and as a first draft it was quite nice to play.

For the language, only english is available for the moment.

your doors areas are too small

We'll fix it

check all your levels are inside the same act, otherwise keys will dissapear when you leave a dungeon.

We'll check that, but i think it's already done

shops are all surrounded by doors?

Doors are just a way to simulate a bar, we'll replace it soon as possible with a better doodad

For the puzzles, it's only the beggining, we'll add some of later :)


@Hipshot, Linaru : Did you clean the 1st and 2nd dungeon ?

We entered the cave first, took the bronze key, then we exited, entered the flower-mountain, then we used the bronze key to get to the boss (I think). When we killed the boss and went back to the cave we were missing the bronze key for that dungeon (obviously).

I played through both dungeons and I really enjoyed it, the first boss died from just one hit though. And also I think the sounds on the volcano level keep stacking up, I guess you start multiple looping sound effects?

@Hipshot : Oh, that's not how we thought the progression, keys have to be use in the same dungeon you found them. We'll add a security to block the 2nd dungeon access if you didn't clean the 1st dungeon.

@Myran : Argh !! I shared my debug map ! (the map i use the clean the campaign fast and see if every thing work...). The first boss have 2000HP... :(
Will be fix in 0.4 (maybe in some hours)

Yea, you need to do that or add one more key. But it's better just to block the dungeon if it's gonna be free roam like this. Because, linaru and me didn't find the crack, that's why we went back out, if the gate had been blocked, then we would have looked more the first time. I really thought you were supposed to get back out and then come back there after a while =)

Ah, alright :)
If you're playing the debug version of the game (the Hammerwatch.exe in the editor folder) then the console is enabled, and you can also bind console commands to keyboard keys. I attached my console binding config, if you put it in the editor folder it will enable a few commands to help you play through stuff quickly:
F1: Gives act1 upgrades
F2: Gives act2 upgrades
F3: Gives act3 upgrades
F4: Gives act4 upgrades
F6: Enable godmode, noclip and speeds up the game
F5: Disable godmode, noclip and sets regular game speed

Wow ! Thanks a lot, that's will help us a lot to test some events and bosses !

So, we're working on this 2 issues, and we'll upload the 0.4 just after (one hour i think, and it'll be up to date)

Edit1 : We've some problems to keep a variable through multiple maps... We want to detect the death of the first boss, keep this in a variable, a with it, destroy the wall who's keeping the 2nd dungeon entrance

Edit2 : We discoveres the flags, hope it will be the solution.

Edit 3 : Nailed it ;)

Great work!
This map has clearly ALOT of potential, keep up the good work.
1 problem thou, in the "volcano" (or whatchamacallit) there was this annoying sound all the time like something was burning, was kinda annoying.

But otherwise this seems like a great map 5/5
