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.

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.
