Devblog 26.04.2021

Hey guys! Today we want to share the current progress of our game “The Hunter of Falkenberg“ in our devblog.

It’s been a few days since our last blog and update, so we think it is about time to bring you to the current status.

All busts have been reworked and are finished. Additionally to the ones from Sigurd and Lilly a few important NPCs got busts now as well. Some have been showed already on the screenshot-saturdays.

Some cutscenes will have artworks and videos, those are finished as well. We won’t show most of them, as to not spoil anything from the game to you.

We’re making good progress with the pixel-art, Rasak has been and is working constantly on the new character-sprites. But there is still a good way to go until things are finished, as there are a few hundred sprites to be done.

We start to implement the new dialogues, cutscenes and game-mechanics this week. First the English version, and later then in German, as the game will be released bilingual.

So, that’s it for this blog-post. We will post the next devblog when the next construction-site has been finished.

If you want to get instant updates of our development-progress please follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and join our Discord-server. There we share screenshots, artworks and other updates frequently and you can ask questions, make suggestions and just interact with our development-team.

Thanks for visiting and for your interest in our game!

Have a nice week

new webcomic

Kevin Wolf presets What I think at midnight ! The webcomic, that fleshes out the world of our indie video game Song of Calamity, can now be read right here.

Author and artist Kevin Wolf (www.künstlerwolf.de), the art director of SLEIPNIR DREAMWARE, is creating this ongoing webseries since march 2020. Each chapter concludes the story of one of the games characters, events or places. The fall of the Butterfly marks the start! In the first chapter of this webcomic the reader can learn all about a poor soul that sought the void of death, only to stumble into the world behind the veil, a manifestation of humanity´s collective subconsciousness.

This dark and twisted webcomic utilizes phantastic imagery of traditional german expressionism and mixes it up with psychedelic colors, patterns and elements. The art of the comic pages are created with Wolf´s recognizable mix of photography, photo-bashing (with Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom and ProCreate) and digital painting. This unique mix of image manipulation and traditional art is what makes this comic so special. Just as the world behind the veil is a blend of reality and fantasy, is the artstyle an expression of even that all by itself.

All comic pages are provided as high resolution and very detailed images and sorted into their associated chapters. Every chapter is about one event or character, but all chapters will tie together eventually.

Check out the latest page and read the whole story up to that point here!

The Hunter of Falkenberg

The Hunter of Falkenberg was created by SLEIPNIR DREAMWARE for the Itch Retro Jam 2021.

In this shortgame you play as Sigurd von Falkenberg, a hunter, well versed in killing monsters of all kind. But you are no hero. Hunters only work for coin and are rarely welcome anywhere. Their secret occult techniques allow them to absorb monster abilities and so they are feared and hated by most of their customers, who see them as degenerated abominations. Only the steady demand of Sigurds proficient skills in combat and magical-annihilation stands between him and the ever daunting threat of becoming an outlaw.

Accompanied by his apprentice Lilly, a young , very talented and sometimes rather cocky, Hunter aspirant, they travel into the haunted Blackswamp to save the dwellers of the village Usdir from an ancient evil…
and empty their pockets.
