Sons of Ra Devlog: End of November

We’re back again! By the way, you guys can expect these every two weeks or so, each one (hopefully) full of new content!

Okay so

basically

Online

With Steam Invites!

It may not look like much, but you can invite people through Steam and play the game with them, completely over the internet!

We still have a lot to test, and that’s where you come in! Head on over to OUR DISCORD and click on #announcements. Follow the instructions and react to the most recent post and we’ll send you a private key!

Sign up for the online test on our DISCORD

This is a little bit less organized than how we normally do things, and that’s because things are gonna be a lot more broken than usual. THE TEST WILL ONLY LAST FOR 4 HOURS: 1:00pm – 4:00pm PDT on Saturday, December 12th. Check out our Discord for more info (Yes. That one is also a link).

Okay, so now that that’s out of the way, regular updates.

Conquest is coming along nicely. To everyone who joked about a Sons of Ra Battle Royale, we actually brought that up during our design meeting, and have started using some ideas from the genre in the most recent update. It’s definitely different, but it’ll make conquest much more interesting to play.

Sekhmet’s abilities are being worked on. We had a design discussion as a group and we think we have a grasp on what will work best for her. She definitely has the most unique passive for any God we’ve created so far, but it’s been super interesting to theory-craft. Functionally, the blessings exist now, but we want to actually give them some visuals before we talk too much about them.

We can share Sekhmet’s Ultimate though: The Huntress (name still WIP). You get to summon a super unit with super strength who runs around and just destroys EVERYONE. Check out her design so far:

And look! Isn’t she rigged just perfectly? (Please don’t take away my Maya license)

Peace.
