I spent most of the weekend working on Knights. I’ve now got the tutorial working and I’ve also added a single player mode, as a couple of people have requested it. The tutorial took quite a while to get working properly, but I personally considered it important to have the tutorial and single player mode in place, for completeness more than anything else.
I also added optional time limits for quests – if no-one finishes the quest within the time limit, then all players lose. This actually works quite well with the single player mode. I played through a few of the standard quests with a time limit and it is quite fun and strangely addictive… which is encouraging!
I’ve also been working on a ton of bug fixes and other minor improvements; hopefully now that those are out of the way, there should be more time to work on more interesting stuff in the future.
The next step is to get this lot released – probably this coming weekend. After that I’m undecided about what to do next, but maybe adding some of the new quest types (e.g. team games) that have been suggested would be fun.
